What is CONTINGENT CONVERTIBLE BOND? What does CONTINGENT CONVERTIBLE BOND mean? CONTINGENT CONVERTIBLE BOND meaning - CONTINGENT CONVERTIBLE BOND definition - CONTINGENT CONVERTIBLE BOND explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A contingent convertible bond (CoCo), also known as an enhanced capital note (ECN) is a fixed-income instrument that is convertible into equity if a pre-specified trigger event occurs. The concept of CoCo has been particularly discussed in the context of crisis management in the banking industry. It has been also emerging as an alternative way for keeping solvency in the insurance industry. The concept was first invented and proposed in the Harvard Law Review in 1991, following the junk bond crisis of the late 1980s. Many years later, others copied the idea as a solution for the banking industry following the great Financial Crisis of 2007-08. A contingent convertible bond is defined with two elements: the trigger and the conversion rate. While the trigger is the pre-specified event causing the conversion process, the conversion rate is the actual rate at which debt is swapped for equity. The trigger, which can be bank specific, systemic, or dual, has to be defined in a way ensuring automatic and inviolable conversion. A possibility of a dynamic sequence exists—conversion occurs at different pre-specified thresholds of the trigger event. Since the trigger can be subject to accounting or market manipulation, a commonly used measure has been the market’s measure of bank’s solvency. The design of the trigger and the conversion rate are critical in the instrument’s effectiveness. Contingent convertible bonds can take a variety of different forms such as a standby loan, a catastrophe bond, a surplus note, or a call option enhanced reverse convertible. In the context of crisis management, contingent convertible bonds have been particularly acknowledged for their potential to prevent systematic collapse of important financial institutions. If the conversion occurs promptly, a bankruptcy can be entirely prevented due to quick injection of capital which would be impossible to be obtained otherwise, either because of the market or the so-called recapitalization gridlock. In addition, due to its debt nature, a contingent convertible bond constitutes a tax shield before conversion. Hence, as compared to common equity, the cost of capital and, consequently, the cost of maintaining a risk absorbing facility are lower. In case the trigger event occurs, conversion of debt into equity drives down company’s leverage. Also, contingent debt is said to have the potential to control the principal-agent problem in a two way manner—engaging both the shareholders and the managers. The greater market discipline and more stringent corporate governance are exercised as a result of shareholders’ direct risk of stock dilution in case conversion was triggered. An argument has been made that making managers’ bonuses in a form of contingent convertible debt instruments could reduce their behavior of excessive risk taking caused by their striving to provide investors with the desired return on equity. A critical benefit of contingent convertible debt that distinguishes it from other forms of risk absorbing debt is the effect of "going concern conversion". When the trigger is well chosen, automatic conversion reduces leverages precisely when the bank faces high incentives for risk shifting. Accordingly, this feature ensures a preventive effect on endogenous risk creation, unlike any other form of bank debt. On the other hand, contingent capital in a form of convertible bonds remains a largely untested instrument causing fears as to its effects especially during periods of high market volatility and uncertainty. The appropriate specification of the trigger and the conversion rate is critical to the instrument’s effectiveness. Some argue that conversion could produce negative signaling effects leading to potential financial contagion and price manipulation. Lastly, the instrument's marketability remains doubtful.

Invesco Strategist Using Futures to Beat Back Bond Bubble
Investors should be careful not to stretch for yield in the current low-rate environment. A multi-asset income strategy mixing yield, defense and growth is a much smarter - and safer - way to go, said Scott Wolle, CIO for the Invesco Global Asset Allocation team . Investors face difficult challenges when it comes to income with yields near historic lows even for assets that have traditionally had attractive yields like high yield bonds and emerging debt. As investors step farther out onto the risk spectrum, whether by accepting lower quality or longer duration, they are more exposed to capital losses. Many assets that currently have reasonable yields have experienced peak-to-trough losses of up to 50% or more, according to Wolle. Wolle finds it hard to see investors "doing well" in high yield bonds from here on in. The SPDR Barclays High Yield Bond ETF (JNK), for example, is up 13% year-to-date and yields only 6%. In his view, the risk/return ratio when yields are that low is simply "not worth it" on a stand-alone basis. Similarly, Wolle said REITs are having a great year, but valuations are now on the high end, while yields are on the low end. The price risk, in his view, is "awfully high." And the same goes for emerging market bonds, which have had a great run after being shunned by investors not too long ago. "It makes sense for investors to consider defense and growth as necessary complements to yield," said Wolle, who uses in his portfolio a combination of high yielding assets like junk and REITs, Treasuries for defense and equity and bond futures to decrease spread and duration risk. "While this isn't necessarily easy, we do believe it's achievable and have adopted this as a goal for our multi-asset income strategy. Like all of our strategies, we use a combination of strategic and tactical allocation to achieve our objectives."

askSlim Market Week 08/10/18
Summary: • The stock market fell last week, with the S&P 500 (SPX) down 7 points to 2833, a decline of 0.2%. • This was led by the emerging markets, whose risks came to the fore on Friday as the Turkish Lira tanked, leading to increased concern about debt repayment. • Our projection this week is for stocks to trade in a range, with risks increasing over the coming weeks as the current minor cycle continues. President Trump’s trade war continued last week, as the US Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer on Tuesday published his final list of $16 billion worth of Chinese imports to be taxed. The Chinese Ministry of Commerce responded the next day with 25% retaliatory tariffs on US imports valued at $16 billion, including automobiles and motorcycles. Yet there was little reaction in the markets, as both of these events were expected. By Friday, though, Trump had authorized an increase of tariffs on Turkish steel from 10% to 20% and from 25% to 50% on aluminum. Referring to a series of recent events, he declared, “Our relations with Turkey are not good at this time!” In response, the Turkish Lira sank a whopping 15% versus the dollar, and Turkish stocks (TUR) tanked 14%. Also declining were Russian stocks (RSX) by 3%, Chinese stocks by 1%, and the broader MSCI Emerging Markets Index (EEM) by 3%. The concern is that the trade war may not be resolved quickly and could even spread to other emerging markets, such as Thailand, Indonesia, and India. To compound this, the US dollar index was up 1.3% on the week and 9.1% from its low of the year. A rising dollar negatively impacts emerging markets, who tend to carry a high percentage of dollar denominated debt. Our approach to technical analysis uses market cycles to project price action. Our analysis of the S&P 500 (SPX) is for stocks to trade in a range, with downside risk increasing in the coming weeks as the current minor cycle comes to completion. In the meantime, we will keep an eye on the 2821 level, which is the bottom of our minor support zone. Below that, our short term cycle support is at 2798. Along with a breakdown in momentum, a move below one or both of these levels would be a bearish signal. --- Add me on twitter @askSlim Did you like this?

Financial Literacy for Mining Stocks (Part II)
http://www.informedtrades.com In this video I go over some key aspects of the income statement -- a statement released by companies, usually on a quarterly basis, that provides a breakdown of their income and costs. There are three key parts of the income statement focused on in this video: 1. Earnings Per Share. This is the company's profits divided by outstanding shares. It constitutes what portion of the company's profits you are buying when you buy a single share (or the company's losses if they are not profitable). Profitable companies are usually the safer bet, but of course the risk/reward principle is important here; companies that have yet to reach profitability typically offer the most potential for share price appreciation. For companies that are not yet profitable, it is important to evaluate their balance sheet to ensure that they have enough cash and low enough expenses to sustain operations until they can finance their growth off profits. 2. Earnings Growth. As income statements are issued on a quarterly basis, you can easily see how income is growing or declining (made even easier by free tools like Google Finance). Historically, companies that have growing earnings have growing share price as well. In the mining sector, growing earnings are determined by (1) the market price of the metal and (2) how much metal the company can mine and at what cost. We'll get more into the costs component of mining in future videos. 3. P/E Ratios. Personally this is one of my favorite metrics that I rely the most on. Take share price, divide it by earnings per share, and we get the P/E ratio. Currently, the average P/E ratio of the companies in the S&P 500 is about 22. If you see stocks below that that look promising, that can be a sign that the share price is low relative to the company's earnings. Conversely, during the first dot com bubble we saw the S&P 500 have an average P/E ratio of over 45. High P/E ratios suggest the company may be overvalued, or conversely, the market has high expectations for future growth. Personally, I like to focus on stocks with P/E ratios below the S&P 500. There are mining stocks that are profitable and issuing dividends with P/E ratios below 15; personally, these are of interest to me as value opportunities that have solid potential for me to buy and hold for a few years. In the next video, we'll discuss dividend yields as well as techniques for scanning for stocks.

Collapse 2016-2019: When Will the Recession Start? Deutsche Bank's Disturbing Answer! HD
Collapse 2016-2019: When Will the Recession Start? Deutsche Bank's Disturbing Answer! HD This is what JPM said: "This morning's employment report also raised the recession probabilities, although for counterintuitive reasons. We do not include the payrolls number in the recession model because it is subject to larger revisions than other labor market data. But the unemployment rate enters the model in two ways. As a near-term indicator, we watch for increases in the unemployment rate that occur near the beginning of recessions. So this morning's move down in the unemployment rate lowered the recession probability in our near-term model. But we also find the level of the unemployment rate to be one of the most useful indicators ofmedium-term recession risk. So the move down in unemployment raises the model's view of the risk of economic overheating in the medium run and raises the "background risk" of recession." So we have unemployment. However, a far bigger risk to the US economy is a topic we have flagged since last fall: peak, and now sliding, profits. Because as DB's Dominic Konstam notes something every high school econ student knows, companies cutting headcount in rising numbers, while beneficial for profits at least in the short run, has negative impacts for long-run aggregate demand, to wit...
