Asia's Rich Brush Aside Risk to Buy Chinese Developer Debt
(Bloomberg) -- When China's largest residential property developer raised money this month, a third of interest came from banks that service the wealthy, a group keeping faith with the nation's beleaguered builders even as other investors flee.The affluent in Hong Kong and the mainland have piled in as Chinese developers sold a record $26 billion in U.S. dollar bonds in the first quarter and $1 billion since, brushing aside concerns that pushed junk-bond yields to an eight-year high in March.Heightened interest from private bank clients and family offices is an important support as developers look to refinance or repay at least $20 billion of debt in a year of uncertain prospects for real estate. Lockdowns across Asia's largest economy have forced more than 100 builders into bankruptcy and the swelling ranks of the unemployed are a continuing threat for the indebted sector. Still, there's confidence that Beijing won't allow a property collapse at a time of slowing economic growth."Yields are especially high this year, giving investors good returns as they bet on the long-term health of China's property market," said Andy Kowk, first vice president of wealth management at Guotai Junan Securities Hong Kong Ltd. "Wealthy investors from mainland China and Hong Kong are very substantial buyers of Chinese developer U.S. dollar bonds."Private banks made up 32% of preliminary orders for a bond offering from home builder Country Garden Holdings Co. last week, a person familiar with the matter said. They accounted for 10% of

Oil Anchored Near $33 a Barrel Amid Rising U.S.-China Tensions
(Bloomberg) -- Oil was anchored near $33 a barrel as an escalating war of words between the U.S. and China added to caution over the prospects for a global recovery in demand.China warned on Sunday that some in the U.S. were pushing the countries toward a new Cold War, stoking concerns that deteriorating relations between Beijing and Washington could complicate the market's recovery from a historic demand crash. Futures edged higher in New York after falling earlier, with trading volumes thin due to holidays in the U.S., U.K. and Singapore.However, there are signs the oil market is positioning itself for a recovery. U.S. shale drillers have cut the number of active rigs to the lowest since 2009, trimming output further. This comes as OPEC slashes output by almost 10 million barrels a day in an effort to reduce a glut.Oil has surged about 75% this month as pockets of demand return in China and India after the easing of lockdown restrictions, and as U.S. crude inventories start to decline. But, the recovery is expected to be long and uncertain, with the risk of a second wave of infections possibly complicating a rebound."The heightening of tensions between the U.S. and China will continue to sully the landscape," said Stephen Innes, chief market strategist at AxiCorp Ltd. However, the overall impact may be limited if there's no "combative retaliation" from Beijing, he said.The U.S. should give up its "wishful thinking" of changing China, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said during his annual news briefing on the sid

Stocks Trade Mixed Amid Mounting China Tensions: Markets Wrap
(Bloomberg) -- Asian stocks began the week in mixed fashion as traders weighed more signs of economies reopening around the world against the rise in U.S.-China tensions.Hong Kong shares extended Friday's slide, following police clashes with protesters marching against China's move to crack down on dissent. Stocks climbed in Tokyo and Sydney, and fluctuated in Seoul and Shanghai. S&P 500 futures nudged higher, building on a rally from late in the Friday session. Oil dipped. Trading volumes may be light with holidays in the U.S., U.K. and Singapore. China set its daily yuan reference rate at the weakest level since 2008 after the increasing tensions drove the currency to a seven-month low.On the virus front, Japan's government is expected to lift the state of emergency in Tokyo and its surrounding regions later Monday, while more Australian children returned to schools and a hard-hit region in northern Italy reported zero fatalities for the first time. Still, the U.S. is considering restricting travel from Brazil, which now has the second-highest number of cases.Fresh turmoil in Hong Kong that spilled over into street protests this weekend is threatening to damage an already souring Sino-U.S. relationship. The U.S. should give up its "wishful thinking" of changing China, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said, warning that American leaders are potentially pushing toward a new Cold War.

'It's like a hurricane came and leveled the entire economy': Retail sales fall 16.4%, a record
.S. retail sales tumbled by a record 16.4% from March to April as business shutdowns caused by the coronavirus kept shoppers away, threatened the viability of stores across the country and further weighed down a sinking economy.The Commerce Department's report Friday on retail purchases showed a sector that has collapsed so quickly that sales over the past 12 months are down a crippling 21.6%. The severity of the decline is unrivaled for retail figures that date back to 1992. The monthly decline in April nearly doubled the previous record drop of 8.3% — set just one month earlier.The sharpest declines from March to April were at clothing, electronics and furniture stores. A long-standing migration of consumers toward online purchases is accelerating, with that segment posting a 8.4% monthly gain. Measured year over year, online sales surged 21.6%.Other than online, not a single retail category was spared in April. Auto dealers suffered a monthly drop of 13%. Furniture stores absorbed a 59% plunge. Electronics and appliance stores were down over 60%. Retailers that sell building materials posted a drop of roughly 3%. After panic buying in March, grocery sales fell 13%.Clothing-store sales tumbled 79%, department stores 29%. Restaurants, some of which are already starting to close permanently, endured a nearly 30% decline despite shifting aggressively to takeout and delivery orders.For a retail sector that had already been reeling, a back-to-back free-fall in spending poses a grave risk. Department stores like Neiman Marcus and J.Crew have filed for bankruptcy protection. Hotels, restaurants and auto dealerships are in danger. Nearly $1 of every $5 spent at retailers last month went to non-store retailers.An April analysis by a group of academic economists found that a one-month closure could wipe out 31% of non-grocer retailers. A four-month closure could force 65% to close.The plunge in retail spending is a key reason why the U.S. economy is contracting. Purchases a
