Earnings per share for MSCI Asia-Pacific Index members slid 16% in the three months through June from a year earlier, the steepest decline in eight quarters, according to analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg Intelligence. That contrasts with a 9% gain seen for companies in the S&P 500 Index even as the US economy edges toward a recession.

HONG KONG: Asian stocks just can’t catch a break. Fresh from being whipsawed by rising geopolitical tensions over Taiwan, they now face what’s forecast to be the worst earnings season since the start of the pandemic.

Earnings per share for MSCI Asia-Pacific Index members slid 16% in the three months through June from a year earlier, the steepest decline in eight quarters, according to analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg Intelligence.

That contrasts with a 9% gain seen for companies in the S&P 500 Index even as the US economy edges toward a recession.

The prospect of dwindling profits adds to the negatives, putting the index on course for its worst annual performance since 2018.

These include China’s lockdowns – a key reason for the region’s poor earnings show, a slowdown in the semiconductor cycle, and the political furore over US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taipei. While the Asian stock benchmark just capped a fourth week of gains as US inflation slowed, the durability of the recovery is already being questioned.

“All the elements are not in place for a sustainable up-move,” said Rajat Agarwal, an Asia equity strategist at Societe Generale SA.

Earnings have yet to enter a new cycle, geopolitical tensions would continue to be priced in, and financial conditions remain restrictive, he said.

A slowdown in China is one of the major factors pushing down regional earnings, particularly as mainland firms make up about 20% of the MSCI Asia gauge. Profits for MSCI China Index constituents are expected to slide 12% in the June quarter from a year ago, dragged down by virus curbs, a cratering in the property market, and dislocated supply chains. Weakness in export-oriented sectors such as semiconductors is also hurting. Analysts have cut back estimates at South Korea’s chip-making giants Samsung Electronics Co by 16% and SK Hynix Inc by 34% from their recent peaks, citing falling global demand for electronics such as mobile phones and personal computers.

“What’s happening in the United States and Europe, companies pulling back on investments, that to me is the burden on tech hardware earnings right now,” said Tai Hui, chief Asia market strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management in Hong Kong.

Still, there are some positive signs for Asian stocks too. A halt in the dollar rally is encouraging fund flows into a number of markets this quarter. Overall, global investors have boosted holdings of shares in the region’s emerging markets outside of China for four straight weeks, the longest streak since January. — Bloomberg
