No chicken feed issue

FOOD inflation has now breached a decade high while overall inflation is starting to creep up with some economists expecting the cost of goods to push on more forcefully in the months ahead.

Yes, the price of commodities have started to ease and off the 52-week highs and that may offer some respite to the pressure inflation has put on the people.

But the key commodity that has most politicians here in Malaysia worried is the price of food.

If you ask economists, they will point to core inflation being relatively benign.

Unfortunately, overall inflation is the key for politicians as the voter base will have to eat to survive and pump petrol in their vehicles.

There is nothing that screams at the predicament politicians and the vote-base is at when it comes to the price of chicken.

The humble bird that finds its way onto the dining tables of Malaysians have a special place in the social makeup. It is because of the amount we consume as a country and directly, how much out of the pay packets we will eventually spend with what some will consider to be the cheapest cost of protein.

If you ask economists, they will point to core inflation being relatively benign. Unfortunately, overall inflation is the key for politicians as the voter base will have to eat to survive and pump petrol in their vehicles.

The government has indicated that the price of chicken would not be floated from July but did a few days ago, concede that the price per kg of chicken would have to be higher than the old price ceiling.

At RM8.90 a kg, that is likely going to be below the cost of production. Even with import permits of chicken now abolished, and companies will be free to import chicken, it will be hard pressed to find sources of chicken that will be willing to sell to Malaysia as the current selling price of a kg of chicken is above RM11 in countries in the region.

It is more than RM14 a kg in the Philippines and it is nearly RM29 a kg in Singapore.

So the price of chicken will have to rise but when Malaysia is one of the largest consumers of chicken on a per capita basis in the world – higher than just about any Western country, then it is understandable why the cost of the “cheapest” source of protein will need to be kept in check.

The cost to keep the price of chicken low will mean that the government will continue to incur a large subsidy bill to maintain the price of goods and try to keep a lid on inflation.

    金鹰基金以为,后续市场预计A股仍将在更高中枢上有所显示,但短期向上空间或有限,短期市场情绪扰动将加大颠簸。将重点关注央妈政策转变和钱币市场利率,追踪海内流动性预期转变;5月我国和美国通胀数据,预计仍较前期往上,届时通胀担忧可能升温;6月16日美联储议息集会,美联储释放Taper信号仍存不确定,市场情绪会受其扰动。届时这些因素均可能对市场反弹形成压制。此外,近期中美间商业谈判的顺遂希望,或将对相关行业的风险偏好带来改善。行业设置上,近期在5月PPI冲高的催化下,顺周期板块将有超跌反弹的时机,但事后,市场气概或将连续转向前期抱团的赛道型品种;对于新能源、医药等前期抱团的赛道型品种,应重点围绕性价比择股。另外,关注能通过自身产物涨价、溢价能力较强、需求兴旺匹敌成本压力的部门中游制造业,尤其是行业龙头,包罗家电、汽车、机械等。银行等高股息的“类债”资产,仍是中期看好的主要偏向,券商有短期估值修复时机。作者三观很好
