Chinese state enterprises post record level of profits in 2017 LINK!

Highest total earnings for state firms posted last year, according to Communist Party newspaper the People’s Daily

PUBLISHED : Tuesday, 16 January, 2018, 2:37pm
UPDATED : Tuesday, 16 January, 2018, 3:25pm

The total profit was the highest ever, the Communist Party newspaper People’s Daily said, while the rate of growth was the highest in five years, according to state-run news agency Xinhua.

The profit figures vindicate plans the Chinese government announced in 2015 to overhaul its lumbering and debt-ridden state sector, launching a radical reform programme designed to make state-owned enterprises (SOEs) more profitable and responsive to the market.

Xinhua said operating revenue for central government-owned enterprises rose 13.3 per cent last year to 26.4 trillion yuan. Total assets reached 54.5 trillion yuan by the end of last year, People’s Daily said, an increase of 7.9 per cent versus 2016.

From The Standard Finance:

Call for full convertibility as yuan rises again
The yuan rose for the fourth straight day yesterday, with USD/CNY once reaching 6.43, near the strongest level in two years.
Former Hong Kong finance minister Antony Leung Kam-chung said although the yuan needs to internationalize, the full convertibility cannot come too fast.

He explained that the funding might transfer to other assets if the speed of flow is quick.

He said the volume of trade in China is ranked in the world's top three, while the yuan only accounted for 1.7 percent of global currency reserves, and the situation was not reasonable.

Leung meanwhile advised Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing to introduce stocks, commodities, bonds and insurance products denominated in renminbi.

Meanwhile, China's central bank boosted injections via open-market operations to the most in two months to counter seasonal tightening of liquidity.

The People's Bank of China pumped in a net 270 billion yuan (HK$397 billion) yesterday, as sales of reverse-repurchase agreements more than offset maturities. That is the most since November 16.

As much as 600 billion yuan is set to leave the financial system as lenders park corporations' quarterly tax payments at the central bank, said David Qu, a market economist at Australia & New Zealand Banking Group in Shanghai.

"This week can probably see the peak of such impact, and that's why the central bank started to step up injections," he said. While market-wide price indicators remain tepid, non-bank financial institutions and smaller lenders suffer much more than the biggest banks, Qu added.

China saw its foreign direct investment rise 7.9 percent year-on-year to reach 877.56 billion yuan , the Ministry of Commerce said in an online statement yesterday.

About 35,652 foreign companies were newly established in 2017, up 27.8 percent from a year earlier, according to the MOC.

I think China have no choice even though they do it slowly but traders need the CNY more and more so CNY goes higher and higher while the USD going down.
China I think will keep selling US$ papers and keep buying Gold effectively converting their holdings of Dollar to Gold and back up the CNY with the Gold standard. 
The Gold will be stored in China and not London, out of the reach of those conspirator.
It is about time someone do something to save the World of the USD printing and loading the financial system with Debts, a free loader.

6.95920 / 6.43463 = 108.15 = 8.15%
18-Dec-2016 to 17-Jan-2018 = 395 days = 1 year 30 Days. or 13 months.

China Heads for First Full-Year GDP Acceleration Since 2010

Bloomberg News
January 18, 2018, 12:01 AM GMT+8 Updated on January 18, 2018, 10:58 AM GMT+8

China’s economy is poised for its first full-year acceleration since 2010, the year its gross domestic product surpassed Japan’s to become the world’s second-largest.

Data due Thursday at 3 p.m. in Beijing will show the economy expanded by 6.8 percent in 2017 from a year earlier, according to Bloomberg’s survey. Other estimates show: 
* Fourth-quarter growth ticked down to 6.7 percent year-on-year from 6.8 percent in the prior three months
* Retail sales increased 10.2 percent in December from a year earlier, the same pace as the prior month
* Industrial production rose 6.1 percent, also unchanged from November
* Fixed-asset investment climbed 7.1 percent for the year, the slowest pace since 1999

Economists, whose growth estimates weren’t optimistic enough before three of the last four quarterly releases, may have yet another surprise in store, according to hints from one high-level source. Premier Li Keqiang said earlier this month that the 2017 expansion was about 6.9 percent, citing better-than-expected exports, fiscal revenue, household income and corporate profits.

RE: China Economic News

One China province has admitted that it has falsifying its GDP figures. IMO, many other provinces are likely to have falsified their GDP as well to meet the "KPI" set by the central government. I am pretty sure the falsified data will affect the national level GDP.

The question now is when China on a national level will try to regularize its GDP figures. In my opinion, the GDP falsification is likely to significantly affect China's GDP

RE: China Economic News
Intervention is better than cure... that's why I don't believe in leaving totally to the invisible hand, waiting for bubbles to burst and market to "adjust by itself"

The heart of the Anbang dilemma is a duration mismatch. The company funded itself with the sale of short-term policies, some of which promised 8 percent returns in six months. The proceeds were often invested in long-term, hard-to-sell assets such as overseas real estate.

In its size and entanglement with China's financial system, Anbang is comparable to Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. or American International Group Inc. in the U.S. before the global financial crisis. The company's total assets were equivalent to a staggering 3.4 percent of China's GDP, UBS Group AG analyst Jason Bedford estimated in a report in August.

By the end of last year's first quarter, Anbang was the country's second-largest insurer after state-owned China Life Insurance Co. Its voracious dealmaking included an aborted $15 billion bid for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. It was also once in talks to invest in 666 Fifth Ave. in New York, the marquee holding of Kushner Cos., the family company of President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.

In May, though, an early sign of its downfall came when Anbang was restricted from selling the policies that had powered its growth. A month later, Wu, who was married to the granddaughter of former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, was detained.

RE: China Economic News
IMHO its a big mess in China. They have widespread corruption and many provinces reporting fake economic numbers and using debt to show growth and prosperity. All their property company are overleveraged and funded by very dodgy wealth management products held off-balance book by their banks.

And their stock exchanges have a lot of companies that are valued at PE 100 and buy overseas companies at lets say PE 25 and use the added revenue/profit to push their stock price further up, then getting more debt from banks/stock market to buy more overseas companies.

Will be fun to watch when all this unravels. Xi is just trying to show he is "doing something" by "chopping" some big players. Like the Wanda group also forced to sell out of projects globally.

But he cant chop everyone, there's just too many to chop. So China continues to pile on the debt albeit at a slower pace..
Virtual currencies are worth virtually nothing.
