The Fed policy meeting ended with no change, as expected, while the central bank expressed confidence a recent rise in inflation to near target would be sustained, leaving it on track to raise borrowing costs in June. The Fed statement was not quite as hawkish as some had wagered on and caused a dip in the dollar, though sentiment remained bullish given U.S. rates were still clearly heading higher while those in Europe and Japan lagged far behind. In the Treasury market, yields dipped slightly US10YT=RR as a quarterly refunding programme of $73 billion came in short of expectations, reducing the pressure on prices from the torrent of supply. Dubai and Abu Dhabi stock exchanges both closed lower on Wednesday, as markets across the Gulf struggled for direction after recent gains, notably in Saudi Arabia. The move was in line with Asian equities, which also eased as investors awaited the U.S. Federal Reserve's upcoming policy statement for clues on the future pace of monetary tightening. Saudi Arabia's index continued to ease after surging past the 8,300-point level last week to its highest level since August 2015. On Wednesday, it closed at 8,098 points. Oil prices dipped on Thursday, weighed down by swelling U.S. crude inventories and record weekly U.S. production that is countering efforts by producer group OPEC to cut supplies and prop up prices. Brent crude oil futures were at $73.19 per barrel at 0404 GMT, down 17 cents, or 0.2 percent, from their last close. Prices were pulled down by a report from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) on Wednesday showing U.S. crude inventories jumped by 6.2 million barrels to 435.96 million barrels C-STK-T-EIA in the week to April 27, the highest level in 2018.

  3. IS Morning Report Thursday , May 03, 2018 UAE: Growth in the United Arab Emirates' non-oil private sector edged up in April from a 10-month low in March, beginning to recover from the introduction of a 5 percent value-added tax at the start of the year, a survey showed on Thursday. The seasonally adjusted Emirates NBD UAE Purchasing Managers' Index, which covers manufacturing and services, rose to 55.1 last month from 54.8 in March. Above 50 indicates expansion and below shows contraction. Output growth rose to 58.4 in April from a 23-month low of 57.1 in March, while growth in new orders climbed to 60.8 from 60.2. Employment growth rebounded slightly from a 17-month low. Passenger traffic at Dubai International Airport rose 4.5 percent in March, rebounding after consecutive monthly declines at the world's busiest airport for international travellers. Passenger numbers rose to 7.85 million from 7.51 million a year earlier, operator Dubai Airports said in a statement, despite the number of flights falling to 34,126 from 34,634. Banks in the United Arab Emirates are lobbying for a change in regulations governing real-estate loans as many have hit a regulatory limit on lending to the industry, said Abdul Aziz Al Ghurair, the chairman of the U.A.E. Banks Federation and CEO of Mashreqbank. Everybody is either “touching the ceiling or busting” the 20% limit on realestate lending. Federation asked central bank to change classification rules for some real-estate loans. Need to be flexible with interpretation of real-estate loans and to redefine what is real estate. Banks proposing that loans to schools should not be classified real-estate lending, along with home loans to individuals if the repayment is being made from the person’s salary. “It is work in progress with the central bank; we have been promised that they will start looking at it; I think before the end of the summer we will have it” Dubai's Aramex Q1 Profit Rises. 1Q17 net profit attributable to shareholders 103 million dirhams versus 91.8 million dirhams year ago. 1Q17 revenue 1.19 billion dirhams versus 1.11 billion dirhams year ago.

  4. IS Morning Report Thursday , May 03, 2018 in reaction to Tabarak CEO’s comments to the media. Says in negotiations on contracts amounting to 1.25 billion to 1.5 billion dirhams National Takaful Q1 Profit Rises. 1Q17 net profit 3.6 million dirhams versus 33,000 dirhams year ago. Gross written contributions 103.1 million dirhams versus 57.9 million dirhams year ago. Dubai developer Nakheel reported a 5 percent increase in first quarter net profit on Wednesday while handing over fewer than half the number of units it did a year earlier. Dubai's residential property market is showing few signs of rebounding from a three-year downturn caused by modest demand and increasing supply from new developments. Net profit for the January-March quarter rose to 1.55 billion dirhams ($422 million) from 1.48 billion, the stateowned developer said in a statement. Nakheel handed over almost 200 land and built form units to customers, down from 412 a year earlier, it said. GCC/ MENA: Saudi Arabia has published draft rules for foreign insurers and reinsurers wanting to establish branches in the kingdom, in the latest attempt by the government to woo international investment. Currently, there are no foreign branches of foreign insurers in the kingdom, with such companies instead having to establish fully capitalised subsidiaries or own a limited share of local insurance businesses. HSBC has been mandated for several privatisations in Saudi Arabia and will announce them very soon, a senior bank executive said on Wednesday. The Saudi government is working on a pipeline of privatisations as part of economic reforms aimed at diversifying the economy away from oil. Riyad Capital closes the secondary public offering to increase the capital of Riyad REIT Fund to 1.633 billion riyals from 500 million, according to a statement to Saudi stock market. Says Riyad REIT is the first fund to carry out a secondary offering by raising its capital through a new mechanism based on a right of allocation method. The capital increase of 1.133 billion riyals will mainly be used for acquisition of three properties that will increase the number of properties in the fund to 11 from 8. The newly acquired properties include Kempinski Hotel complex and Saudi Electronic University building in Riyadh, and a mixed-use property in Jeddah Almarai aims to refinance its 1.7 billion riyals ($453.3 million) sukuk by the third quarter and has hired an international adviser to complete the process, its chief financial officer told Reuters. An International Monetary Fund delegation will arrive in Cairo next week to review Egypt's progress on economic reforms before it disperses the fourth instalment of a $12 billion loan programme, Deputy Finance Minister Mohamed Moait said. Egypt agreed the threeyear IMF loan programme in November 2016 that is tied to sweeping reforms such as spending cuts and tax hikes. National Commercial Bank, Saudi Arabia's largest lender, on Wednesday reported a 10.5 percent rise in first-quarter net profit, above analysts' forecasts as bad debt charges fell and fees rose. The bank's net profit of 2.99 billion riyals ($797 million) in the three months to March 31, was up from 2.70 billion riyals in the same period of 2017, it said in a statement. Saudi Arabia is able to issue 50- or 100-year bonds, but is not keen at the moment to sell debt of such long maturities, the head of its debt management office said on Wednesday. "Are we able to issue 50, 100 years, yes. Are we able to issue in different currencies other than dollars, yes. Are we keen to take that step at the moment, I don't think so," Fahad al-Saif told a business conference in Riyadh. Saudi Arabia is on track on to cut its budget deficit to 7 percent of gross domestic product this year, Finance Minister Mohammed al-Jadaan said on Wednesday. Speaking at a conference in Riyadh, he also said first quarter fiscal results show significant progress in growing non-oil revenues and raising spending efficiency in the kingdom, whose economy contracted last year.

  5. IS Morning Report Thursday , May 03, 2018 Saudi Arabia's Capital Market Authority (CMA) said on Wednesday there are now 140 qualified foreign investors in the stock market, with 40 registered in the last quarter. Qualified foreign institutions were allowed to start investing directly in Saudi Arabia's stocks market in 2015, and qualification requirements were eased in 2016. Bahrain needs to accelerate reforms to its state budget to reach a deficit level that would make its finances sustainable over the medium term, an International Monetary Fund official said. Jihad Azour, director of the IMF’s Middle East and Central Asia department, was speaking after yields on Bahrain's international bonds jumped during a debt sale at the end of March because of investor concern about the country's finances. An International Monetary Fund delegation will arrive in Cairo next week to review Egypt's progress on economic reforms before it disperses the fourth instalment of a $12 billion loan programme, Deputy Finance Minister Mohamed Moait said. Egypt agreed the three-year IMF loan programme in November 2016 that is tied to sweeping reforms such as spending cuts and tax hikes.
