Financial attention


1. Central Meteorological Observatory: Since April, the subtropical high pressure has been stronger than the same period throughout the year, which is conducive to the transport of water vapor from the South China Sea and Bay of Bengal to the southern region. At the same time, the plateau trough and southern branch system are active, leading to frequent and prolonged heavy rainfall processes in the southern region. In addition, the temperature of the atmosphere in Jiangnan, South China, and other regions is significantly higher than the same period throughout the year. The atmosphere has abundant water content and unstable energy, leading to vigorous convective development and high rainfall intensity. The cumulative precipitation in many areas has exceeded the historical record in April.

2. CCTV News: As of April 21st, a total of 1001 trains and 113000 TEUs of goods were transported at the Erenhot Railway Port on the China Europe freight train's central channel this year, an increase of 7.8% and 9.2% year-on-year, respectively, setting a new historical high for the same period. Among them, high value-added and high-tech products such as cars, computers, and robots account for over 40%.

3. IMF: The global economy is showing resilience and is expected to achieve a soft landing, but the recovery is still uneven among countries.

4. CCTV News: Affected by the continuous heavy rainfall since April 16, 44 rivers in the the Pearl River basin have had over warning floods, with an over warning range of 0.01-7.04 meters, of which the Beijiang River has the No. 2 flood in 2024. The water level of the Beijiang River will continue to rise and may develop into a major flood, posing a great risk of geological disasters such as floods in small and medium-sized rivers and mountain floods.

6. CITIC Securities: The current abnormal collective bullish trend in commodities is a coincidence of their respective narratives, and after a period of frenzy, prices of different commodities may experience differentiation. Gold, high platform favorable period, may still be relatively dominant before the Federal Reserve's substantial easing. The current rise in copper prices is due to an undeniable supply-demand gap, and the strong gold price is driven up by the copper gold ratio.

Wealth Focus

1. Economic Daily: Since the beginning of this year, the largest year-on-year increases in COMEX silver futures prices and gold futures prices have been 24.4% and 18.2%, respectively. Similar to gold, the rise in silver prices is mainly the result of the resonance of three factors: physical supply and demand, finance, and hedging attributes. Due to speculative trading and risk aversion, there is still a possibility of silver prices rising in the short term.

2. Securities Times: Recently, the State Administration for Financial Regulation issued a notice (draft for soliciting opinions) to property and casualty insurance companies and other relevant parties on promoting the high-quality development of new energy vehicle insurance, proposing development ideas for new energy vehicle insurance from three aspects, including optimizing the supply mechanism of new energy vehicle insurance and improving the operational level of the industry's new energy vehicle insurance. Multiple provisions are related to premium pricing.

Industry observation

1. Cui Dongshu: In the past two years, the new energy vehicle and energy storage industry has been highly prosperous, and the proportion of new energy vehicle batteries installed has decreased. With the growth of long-term products, ternary batteries have rebounded, and the proportion of lithium iron phosphate batteries in the total has decreased from 67% to 61%. With the promotion of policies, the demand for battery installation in electric vehicles is expected to continue to grow slower than the total number of vehicles, while the trend of pure electric vehicles is weak.

2. China Tourism Research Institute: The number of outbound tourists is expected to reach 130 million in 2024.

4. Caixin News Agency: Recently, multiple storage companies have expected good performance in the first quarter. The reduction in production by storage factories and the rise in prices have driven the performance recovery of storage industry chain enterprises. The implementation of AI applications has also brought a certain driving effect to the storage industry. In addition, there was a significant increase in DRAM prices in the second quarter, with a range of 10% -20%, and the increase has exceeded 50% since July last year.

5. CCTV News: After the first carbon reduction project in the field of electronic waste in China was signed and implemented in Zhejiang, the first batch of 10000 tons of carbon reduction trading has been completed and invoiced recently. The first batch of transactions for this project were completed by Zhejiang Shengtang Environmental Protection Technology Co., Ltd. and Lenovo Group. The former generates carbon emissions through dismantling and processing electronic waste, while the latter offsets the carbon emissions during its production process by purchasing carbon emissions reductions.

6. Wan Gang, Chairman of the China Association for Science and Technology: Carbon neutral fuels, represented by hydrogen based fuels, have strong carbon reduction potential throughout their entire lifecycle and will become an important way to achieve carbon neutrality and even zero emissions in the automotive industry.

Guojin Securities: Recently, LME copper prices rose by 4.97% to $9874.5 per ton. Global copper inventory destocking ranges from 3000 tons to 623300 tons. The upward trend of copper prices continues, with inflation expectations reflected by the 10-year breakeven inflation rate rising by 2BP to 2.41%, supporting the upward trend of copper prices. The high copper price has led to weak market consumption, and the pace of downstream rigid demand procurement has not changed. Some enterprises are considering phased reduction and shutdown due to weak market consumption and high inventory pressure. In 2024, global copper supply growth is limited, leading mining companies to intensify supply disruptions, and it is expected that electrolytic copper will maintain a tight supply-demand balance throughout the year.

Hualong Securities: Affected by factors such as declining copper ore taste, increasing mining costs, worker strikes, and environmental policies, several major copper mines, including Cobre Panama Copper Mine under First Quantum, Anglo American United, and Radomiro Tomic under Codelco, have announced production cuts or shutdowns since the end of 2023. Overall, the global shortage of copper concentrate supply may intensify in 2024, leading to a continuous decline in processing fees for downstream smelters. Smelters in China and other regions may consider stopping or reducing production to stabilize processing fee prices. Under the expectation of intensified supply-demand imbalance, copper prices surged in the short term this week.

Dongwu Securities: In terms of demand, the sustained high copper prices have suppressed the release of demand, and market consumption remains weak. The pace of downstream rigid demand procurement has not changed. At present, there is a slight shortage of supply at the mining end in the short term, and long-term supply expectations are tightening. Copper prices are prone to rise but difficult to fall. Rio Tinto and Toque stated at the Chilean Copper Conference that they need a significant increase in copper prices to stimulate copper investment and meet future demand for new energy. It is recommended to pay attention to the March US PCE data, and copper prices are expected to maintain a volatile trend. In addition, Russian metals are restricted from trading LME and CME warehouse receipts, and the expectation of insufficient exchange warehouse receipts in the short term may lead to a forced position market.

Everbright Securities: The current copper industry is in a period of tight supply, with downstream demand exceeding expectations. Copper prices have entered a very high price range, known as the demand elasticity zone, and subtle changes in demand will bring about a rapid jump in copper prices. In 2024, the copper industry will enter a shortage, and the shortage will further expand in 2025; In theory, there is hope that the price will increase in the future and exceed the cash cost of all existing production capacity, which is expected to rise to $14500 per ton. In summary, copper prices need to rise above $12000 per ton in order to have more potential supply release. The supply-demand gap will gradually expand from 2024 to 2025, and copper prices above $12000/ton are expected to be realized by 2025. We continue to be optimistic about investment opportunities for copper industry companies.
