South African equities continued to trade in a wide band between 58 000 and 54 000 points. However, continued poor macro-economic news flow had a negative impact on local share prices as the FTSE/JSE All Share Index (ALSI) declined by 1.8% in the month. This asset class has returned 8.5% since January. On average emerging market equity indexes also traded lower in the month but developed markets bucked the trend as the MSCI World Equity Index advanced by 2.8% in dollar terms during November.
The wide range of performances recorded by the various sectors appears to be entrenched on the local equity market. In November gold shares declined by 13% while fixed-line telecommunications fell 31%. Platinum miners remained on the winning podium as the sector advanced by 7.2% and tobacco recovered well, gaining 8.9%.
Despite the dire fiscal outlook, the All Bond Index managed to remain in positive territory as it gained 0.22% in November, although bonds with a duration of 12-years plus were down by 0.25%. Cash returned 0.55% and listed property advanced by 0.81%. Since January cash has returned 6.7% marginally lagging the 8.3% return of the All Bond Index.
The Technical Momentum portfolio had another good month during November, outperforming its benchmark – the JSE All Share Index (ALSI) – by 1.62%. The outperformance was largely driven by a high cash weighting that softened a 1.80% decline in the benchmark, as well as the portfolio’s positioning in various South African-focused companies that recovered well, including Dis-Chem and Mr Price.
