English to Italian: Commento mensile fondo asiatico
Source text - English
Asian stockmarkets performed strongly during September as oil prices fell, while inflationary pressures across the region showed increasing signs of weakening. A general perception that the US can coordinate a “soft landing” for its economy also provided a positive backdrop for Asian equities. Lower oil prices also provided a tailwind for equity markets with strong gains for many of the net-oil importing countries in the region. Macroeconomic news continues to remain robust with exports showing no signs, so far, of being adversely impacted by a US slowdown. Domestic demand has been more mixed, however, with strong demand in the two largest economies in the region (China, India), along with Singapore. Elsewhere, however, demand has been weaker, but still positive, in Korea, Hong Kong and Thailand. In terms of overall positioning, the fund continues to favour companies that are positioned to benefit from strengthening domestic economies, such as financials and domestic consumption stocks. Our largest overweight sector position is within Financials, where we favour Real Estate and Insurance, along with banking stocks. The banking sector continues to act as a good means of providing indirect exposure to increased levels of domestic consumption.
Translation - Italian
Le borse asiatiche hanno registrato una forte performance a settembre grazie al calo dei prezzi del petrolio, mentre le pressioni inflazionistiche nella regione mostrano segnali crescenti di debolezza. Anche la percezione diffusa che gli USA siano in grado di gestire un “atterraggio morbido” dell’economia ha offerto un sostegno alle azioni asiatiche. Il calo dei prezzi del petrolio ha dato una spinta ai mercati azionari, producendo forti guadagni nei molti paesi importatori netti di petrolio presenti nella regione. Il quadro macroeconomico resta solido: le esportazioni non mostrano fino ad ora di risentire del rallentamento USA. La domanda interna risulta tuttavia più contrastante: resta solida nelle due grandi economie dell’area (Cina, India), oltre che a Singapore. In altri paesi, tuttavia, la domanda risulta più debole ma comunque positiva: Corea, Hong Kong e Tailandia. A livello complessivo, il comparto continua a privilegiare società in grado di beneficiare di un rafforzamento dell’economia interna, come ad esempio nel settore Finanziario e dei Beni di Consumo interno. La nostra principale sovraponderazione settoriale è nei Finanziari, dove privilegiamo il Mercato Immobiliare e gli Assicurativi, oltre ai titoli bancari. Il settore bancario continua ad essere un utile tramite per ottenere un’esposizione indiretta alla crescita dei consumi interni.
