NZ market falls, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare bolsters trading

The New Zealand sharemarket had a late fall with Fisher & Paykel Healthcare doing its best to bolster trading. But all eyes were on the US Federal Reserve’s latest meeting.

The S&P/NZX 50 Index closed at 11,741.88, down 43.59 points or 0.37% following the deep dive in the end-of-day broker matching session.

The index reached an intraday high of 11,811.11 points. There were 50 gainers and 86 decliners over the whole market on 37.83 million share transactions worth $118.24m.

Jeremy Sullivan, investment adviser with Hamilton Hindin Greene, said the market was in a holding pattern awaiting the statement from the Federal Reserve, which is due Thursday morning (NZ time).

“Keeping the official rate unchanged will be no surprise, and the market is pricing in two rate cuts by the end of the year. Any divergence from that will materially move the markets,” he said.

“Inflation has been stickier than the Fed hoped, and economic data has been mixed. If the Fed does give guidance to the timing of rate cuts, then this frees up the Reserve Bank here to follow suit.”

At home, latest statistics showed New Zealand gained 98,500 migrants in the year to April, down from 106,000 in the March year – though net migration remained at historically high levels.

More than 81,000 New Zealanders departed long-term in the year to April for a net loss of 56,500, exceeding the previous record of 52,000 in the year to March. There was a gain of 154,900 non-New Zealand citizens.

New Zealand Oil & Gas, up 0.005c to 39c, has now added a further 25% interest in the Australian Amadeus Basin Mereenie oil licences, taking its holding to 50%, including subsidiary Cue Resources 7.5% interest.

NZOG said the acquisition will double its reserves and production from the Mereenie field in Northern Territory.
