NZX50 continues its slow slide

The New Zealand sharemarket recorded its fourth fall in five trading days as the continuing rise in oil prices added fresh inflationary concerns.

by BusinessDesk

The S&P/NZX 50 Index again slipped from lunchtime but had a late recovery to close at 11,427.66, down 9.58 points or 0.08%.

There were 67 gainers and 58 decliners over the whole market on volumes of 28.62 million share transactions worth $127.94m.

Brent crude oil exceeded US$90 (NZ$152.50) a barrel before settling at US$86.30, still the highest level since November and unnerving offshore markets. The price rose after Saudi Arabia and Russia extended voluntary cuts in production to the end of the year.

Long-term bond yields rose, and the US dollar hit a six-month high, with the kiwi weakening to US58.85c against the greenback.

In the United States, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was down 0.56% to 34,641.97 points; the S&P 500 declined 0.42% to 4496.83; and the Nasdaq Composite slipped 0.08% to 14,020.95.

Across the Tasman, the S&P/ASX 200 Index had fallen 0.76% to 7259 points at 6pm NZ time.

Matt Goodson, manager director of Salt Funds Management, said the oil price rise “is a bit of a headwind. With NZ being a petroleum importer, it’s never good to negate the supply-side shock.

“Goods inflation is petering out, but services inflation remains sticky and high. The last thing we want is oil inflation to come along and impact goods and services. It means interest rates will stay higher longer if the oil price surge is sustained.”

Goodson said the local market continued to be weak, and the election was critical for its future direction.

“The earnings season wasn’t that great, and there’s been an array of forecast downgrades since then.

“Globally, you have seen a reasonable increase in bond yields, and an easing in central bank monetary policies will not be coming soon. It’s a tricky backdrop.”

Auckland International Airport, up 3c to $8.13, topped the individual trading list with 4.94m shares worth $40.21m changing hands. The airport gained an increased weighting on the FTSE Russell Index following the Auckland council shares sale, making the stock more liquid for trading.
