  2. 2. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global ResearchHideyuki TakahashiHead of Global ResearchSenior Corporate Managing Director Thank you for your interest in Nomura research in 2010. Our global fixedincome and equity research teams have issued global outlook reports for2011 covering macroeconomics, forex, equity strategy, inflation strategy, andgeopolitics. We have also put together distinctive 2011 outlook reports foreach region. We hope you will find the investment ideas presented in theseproducts useful. Nomura has endeavored to provide research spanning theglobe, and with the increasing globalization of financial markets, we thinkresearch in tune with changes in global trends will be more important thanever. We started up US fixed income research operations in 2009 and USequity research in October 2010, completing our lineup of economic, forex,equity, fixed income and quantitative analysis research. In 2011, Nomuraaims to have our researchers in each region cooperate across borders toprovide research highlighting new investment opportunities. Expect moregood things from Nomura research in the new year.Michael GuarnieriGlobal Head of Fixed Income ResearchPaul NorrisHead of Global Equity Research |1|
  3. 3. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011Global Outlooks2011 Global Economic Outlook Rocky Road of Recovery The developed world recovery is set to stay muted due to ongoing de-leveraging, fiscal restraint and other crisis legacies. With better fundamentals and fewer aftermath issues, much of the emerging world, led by Asia, is set to keep growing briskly. Developed-world inflation should stay contained, but we see the ECB and BOE raising rates way ahead of the Fed and BOJ. We see inflationary pressures mounting in EM as funds keep flowing in and the authorities intervene to stem rising currencies. Downside risks: euro area fiscal crisis escalates and spreads; an investment pull-back in China; EM overheating turns sour. An upside surprise?: animal spirits stir and crisis-calibrated monetary policies help release pent-up developed world demand. We anticipate the US dollar consolidating in 2011 against other major currencies, but weakening against EM currencies.2011 Global FX Outlook A global balancing act We believe the outlook for risky currencies is mildly positive for 2011. This assessment is based on a consistent historical pattern of returns during similar points in the cycle. The challenges are: 1) this view is buy-side consensus and we must be alert to overshooting in price and positioning (and we have a clear ‘value’ focus in our recommendations below); 2) a sustained shift in Fed view (something we dispute); 3) that the notion of EM economic outperformance may be tested in 2011 (we think markets will look beyond any temporary growth convergence); 4) EM economic outperformance, butting against continued US political pressures, may exacerbate tensions around global rebalancing in general and around CNY in particular; 5) Events in Europe, most critically Spain, threaten to upset risk markets.2011 Global Equity Strategy Outlook Reducing the Risk Premium The 6% risk premium now embedded in global equities seems inappropriately high to us compared with current volatility and credit spreads, while implied growth rates look out of line with likely economic and earnings trends. We forecast earnings growth of 16% in 2011, and a total return of 20%. We expect asset allocators in developed economies to respond to the valuation gap that now exists between stocks and bonds. Regionally, we reduce exposure to emerging markets as policy tightening and an already heavy inflow of capital limit the scope for further asset price gains. We still expect positive returns in emerging markets. We increase exposure to Japanese and US equities because we think both regions will likely continue to benefit from loose monetary policy and the aforementioned asset shift, while equity valuations in Japan look especially appealing. If stock prices and bond yields rise, Financials should outperform, while sectors that can grow organically should also do well. |2|
  4. 4. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Global Outlooks2011 Global Fixed Income Strategy Outlook Four Macro Themes for 2011 One of the golden rules of year-ahead articles is to begin with a healthy dose of humility. To be fair, many of our core themes in 2010 fared well. We were bullish G4 rates, which at the start of the year was a highly unpopular view. We believed decoupling between large developed economies and China and its large trading partners would be a definitive trade in 2010 – and we stuck with the trade despite the substantial shock to risk appetite during Europe’s debt crisis. We expected continued loose G4 monetary policy to be supportive of carry trades, especially in short-end interest rates – our systematic taking of that carry risk was one of the more underappreciated trades of 2010.2011 Global Inflation Outlook Reality Check We stress test the vision of a world where inflation never occurs again. There is no need to expect hyper-inflation (and we don’t) to find inflation markets complacent. Inflation markets have experienced highly distinct periods over the past three years, from concerns about an inflation spiral up to summer 2008 (remember the inflation caps?), a more balanced scenario in 2009, moving to deflation concerns in the middle of 2010 (remember deflation floors?) and recovering somewhat since then. As of the end of 2010, we appear to be in a transition period. But we see current valuations as low against fundamentals: despite all the headwinds, the economy is in a recovery phase, upside pressures are mounting while deflationary forces are diminishing. So 2011 should be a reasonably strong year for inflation valuations, something closer to 2009 than 2010.2011 Global Geopolitics Outlook Politics Remain Pivotal Even as Risk Aversion Recedes Politics and policy will continue to be key drivers of market sentiment as governments move forward in 2011 with exit strategies from the financial crisis. Generic issues where policy decisions stand to play a particularly important role include the management of capital inflows and food price inflation. Decisions in the United States – ranging from fiscal policy to relations with China – stand to be the main focus of markets. Sovereign debt issues could yet pull market attention back to the eurozone, although a repeat of the 2010 crisis is, in our view, unlikely. We expect the coalition government in the United Kingdom to survive potentially difficult local elections and a referendum set for 5 May 2011. In the Middle East, a number of issues stand to fuel tensions locally, but we see only a low probability of a major global shock emanating from the region in the next 12 months, eg, an Israeli military strike against Iran. We expect China to continue a smooth trajectory towards the handover of power to the 5th Generation leadership in 2012-13. |3|
  5. 5. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Regional / Country / Product Outlooks2011 European Economic Outlook Finding the balance Policymakers in Europe need to strike a balance between different policy options. That potentially leaves even more scope than usual for policy errors. The sovereign debt crisis is the issue that has dominated the thinking of European policymakers over 2010 and will no doubt continue to do so in the year ahead. Periphery governments must continue with their programme of fiscal austerity and structural reform. Too much tightening runs the risk of economic stagnation or political opposition which could render it unfeasible, losing the confidence of markets and official backers; too little and markets lose confidence anyway.2011 EEMEA Economic Outlook A Postmodern World Structural changes, combined with cyclical trends, are leading EEMEA policymakers to adopt new strategies to cope with shifting global growth, rising inflation and increased fiscal scrutiny. Postmodernism: A style and concept characterized by distrust of theories and ideologies, and by the drawing of attention to conventions, Oxford English dictionary.2011 European Equity Strategy Outlook Reasons for reinvestment A key reason behind the low multiples attached to European stocks is the lack of organic growth. However, with high rates of profitability on existing capital, a very low cost of debt, continued economic recovery and indications that investors are rewarding more proactive deployment of cash flows – CEOs are likely to increase organic investment as well as M&A. We forecast a 13% gain for European equities in 2011. We are biased towards sectors that benefit from rising stock markets and lower risk premiums, and prefer ‘B to B’ over ‘B to C’. We do not want to ‘pay-up’ for defensive exposure, therefore we overweight Financials, Tech and Media, and underweight Utilities, Consumer Staples and Consumer Cyclicals. We downgrade exposure to both Healthcare and Telecom, while adding to Industrials and Financials. |4|
  6. 6. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Regional / Country / Product Outlooks2011 European Media Outlook Investment-driven growth, accretive acquisitions and M&A 2010 has produced some upside surprises from the early cyclical advertising exposed stocks. There may still be scope for further cyclical gains, but the power to shock is reduced. Earnings upgrades will have to be generated by internal investment in organic growth initiatives and accretive acquisitions. Our top picks for internally generated growth are Reed Elsevier (which has raised investment levels, in growth markets), Telenet and Eutelsat. As well as making accretive acquisitions, some media companies could become M&A targets in 2011. BSkyB is our top pick on M&A grounds and a bid of 800p+ could come as early as Q1.2011 Asia FX Outlook Capital flows, growth ebbs We identify the following key themes driving Asia FX into 2011: 1. Capital inflows into EM and particularly Asia; 2. Asian central banks implementing more capital controls; 3. The impact of capital controls and the risks of an FX policy shift towards allowing appreciation; 4. CNY appreciation; and 5. Relative Asia growth outperformance, but risks of growth slowing.2011 Asian interest rate strategy Outlook History rhymes We retain a positive view on Asian interest rate markets into 2011. Our view is underpinned by several factors: 1) an ongoing regional economic slowdown; 2) our assumption that there will be less pass-through of high commodity prices to underlying inflation than the market believes; 3) the changed reaction function of regional central banks who are less inclined to tighten policy into a commodity price-driven rise in headline inflation than they were in 2007-08; 4) regulatory changes in the global banking, insurance and pension industries, which are spurring demand for duration; and 5) a bias among regional policy makers to tighten monetary conditions via exchange rates rather than interest rates. |5|
  7. 7. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Regional / Country / Product Outlooks2011 Asia Pacific Equity Strategy Outlook Deflation, inflation and the return of the productive economy We expect global equities to deliver positive returns as funds move away from bonds as growth fears subside. Asian equities should benefit from rising domestic consumption, real negative interest rates, wealth effects and growing bi-lateral trade between EM. Asian authorities continue to prioritise growth over inflation. We upgrade Taiwan on better global growth prospects. We expect companies demonstrating better competitiveness and beneficiaries of productivity gains to outperform. We highlight them below. We view 2011 as the start of the worlds population shifting from favourable demographics to an aging society. This is also passing through Asia from Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The world’s aging comes at a time when China has reached the Lewis point — it has run out of cheap labour. Wage costs in Asia are rising quickly.2011 Asia Pacific Quantitative Outlook Productivity factor for extra juice Productivity and competitiveness, as well as the ability of companies to manage costs, sustain capital spending and grow market share, will likely be key return drivers in 2011. In terms of styles in Asia, we suggest adding exposure to the composite productivity factor in 2011 and continue to emphasise momentum and growth over value. We present our suggested quant screen approach in 2011.2011 China Equity Strategy Outlook Higher ground We believe solid earnings growth (21%+ y-y), sufficient liquidity (+18% y-y M2 growth) and undemanding valuations (in line with historical average forward P/E of 12.6x) will support 20%-plus upside in China’s equity market in 2011. Against a likely backdrop of surging inflation, interest hikes, RMB appreciation, the 12th FYP and rising global commodity prices, we spell out our sector winners/losers for 2011. We are Bullish on Financials, Property, Consumer, Oil & gas and Online gaming. Near-term concern over inflation will weigh on equity market performance. But amid tightening monetary policy and price control efforts, any share price weakness should present buying opportunities for long-term gains. |6|
  8. 8. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Regional / Country / Product Outlooks2011 Korea Equity Strategy Outlook Land of the investing calm We expect Kospi earnings to rise 15% in 2011. Our market year-end target is 2230, with a fair risk premium of 6.7%. Unlike 2010, Korean equities are entering 2011 with no signs of overheating. The global economy has avoided a double dip, valuations remain inexpensive, while liquidity conditions and sentiment are favourable. We prefer those stocks benefiting from rising commodity prices. BoK rate hikes have been much slower than expected, despite current account surpluses having reached a record high, resulting in loose monetary conditions and excess liquidity. A highly leveraged household, subdued property prices and a strengthening won are delaying aggressive monetary policy tightening, and has helped sentiment on Korea equities. We see Korea as is a key beneficiary of emerging market growth.2011 Singapore Equity Strategy Outlook Riding the reflation cycle in 2011 We see 10 to 15% market returns in Singapore in 2011, underpinned by attractive valuations, favourable liquidity conditions and a strong S$. Macro and industry drivers underpin our positive stance towards banks (attractive valuations), commodities (food inflation), offshore marine (capex cycle) and commercial property (cyclical upswing). A strong currency, reasonable valuations and available policy flexibility (strong fiscal position) support Singapore’s market outlook in 2011. Moderation in exports due to a stronger S$ is consistent with our view of slower but more sustainable GDP growth going into 2011. Greater cooperation within ASEAN to improve trade and FDI across ASEAN, while better Singapore-Malaysia relations could accelerate cross-border investments.2011 Malaysia Equity Strategy Outlook The rally is still young Most of the characteristics of the super bull market in the early 1990s have resurfaced, with five key features clearly apparent: economic recovery, liquidity, sector rotational plays, M&A activity and rising retail participation. The excitement infused by the ongoing flurry of M&A activity in three different sectors can only be positive for market sentiment, not to mention for investment banking earnings. Set against a favourable backdrop of — 1) an ongoing consumption boom, driven by a younger and wealthier population; 2) improving commodity prices; and 3) ample liquidity supporting asset reflation evident in the buoyant property market — the bull market in Malaysia looks set to continue into 2011. Going into the New Year, we believe the property, palm oil and bank sectors will be the winners. |7|
  9. 9. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Regional / Country / Product Outlooks2011 India Equity Strategy Outlook Under the weather We expect 2011 to be a year of below-average returns for the market and set our December 2011 Sensex target at 22,100, implying a potential return of around 12%. We see downside risk to the 20% y-y earnings growth in FY12F now being priced in by consensus. We believe this, combined with a likely tightening of the policy environment, could restrict premium expansion for equities. The factors that could dominate policy are the strength of consumer demand and inflation. Global commodity prices will likely be key in determining the evolution of inflation, the current account and policy action.2011 Japan Equity Strategy Outlook An end to collective pessimism 1. We think Japanese equities are likely to outperform global equities in 2011. 2. We expect support from improvement in Japanese equities’ relative valuations, firming earnings momentum, and the BOJs monetary policy stance. 3. Our end-2011 TOPIX target is 1,100. 4. As key stock-selection themes we see: (1) a steepening of the JGB yield curve; (2) ongoing rapid growth and rising inflation rates in emerging economies, and related strengthening of their currencies; (3) Japanese companies’ use of accumulated cash to increase shareholder returns and fund capital investment and M&As; and (4) improvement in the inventory-shipment balance in the electronic parts and devices sector. 5. We recommend overweighting the financials, housing/real estate, machinery, and electrical machinery/precision equipment sectors.2011 Japan Economic Outlook We expect Japan to break out of its lull in 2011, led by exports We have made revisions to our economic outlook for FY10–FY12 following the announcement of second preliminary real GDP estimates for 2010 Q3. Reflecting retroactive revisions to figures, we have raised our FY10 forecast for real GDP growth from 2.7% to 3.3%. We maintain our growth forecasts of 1.2% for FY11 and 2.1% for FY12. We expect the Japanese economy to perform weakly in the near term, but we maintain our outlook for Japan to break out of its economic lull in 2011 H2, led by exports. |8|
  10. 10. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Regional / Country / Product Outlooks2011 US Rates Outlook Calibrating the Rates Compass The recent movements in the bond market have a similar look and feel to what took place during December 2009. The market went on to trade better in the first few weeks of 2010 only to fade up to higher yields. A repeat of that sort of trading experience could be indeed what is ahead at the start of 2011. However, what is different now in our minds is that we believe investors will continue to “sell into strength” whereas in the latter half of 2010 they would “buy into strength.” We therefore maintain an overall bearish bias and see rates trading at the higher end of our basline core view of 2.35% to 3.60% in 1H11. This range of 125 bps compares to the 160 bps of 2010. We believe that as economic variability declines, that overall rate movements will also contract.2011 Securitized Products Outlook Navigating the Maze of Options Agency MBS had started the year 2010 on a nervous note as MBS spreads were very tight and the market was worried about the likely widening of spreads once the Fed concluded its MBS purchase program in 1Q‘10. Although agency MBS spreads held up pretty well for about 3-4 months after the Fed‘s purchase program was completed, the spread between the current coupon MBS yield and the average yield of 5-year and 10-year Treasuries had widened by close to 40bp from the historical tights hit in July’10.2011 Non-agency MBS Market Outlook Review of 2010 and Key Themes for 2011 Outlook for housing and loan modifications: Our base case forecast is that national home prices will drop 5% in 2011 driven by distressed inventory liquidations and demographic trends. We present our outlook for modification activity going forward Mortgage Credit Performance: We present our outlook for liquidation timelines, severities, credit burnout, prepayments, and overall default and loss projections. Supply and Demand Technicals: The technical backdrop should remain very strong for nonagency RMBS given expectations for limited new issue supply and the potential reinvestment demand from paydowns. Recommended positioning in the RMBS market for 2011: We maintain an overweight bias on the overall non-agency sector, and recommend buying recent vintage SSNR option ARM bonds, SSNR dirty prime/cleaner Alt-A fixed-rate collateral, and longer duration subprime seasoned mezzanine bonds. |9|
  11. 11. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Regional / Country / Product Outlooks2011 GNMA Market Outlook Navigating the Maze of Options We think that a combination of the tightening of FHA underwriting standards and higher insurance fees will lead to a relatively higher percentage of loans being insured through private mortgage insurance in 2011. Further, the surge in home sales in the sub-$200k price segment due to tax credits has subsided. This, coupled with lower conventional to FHA refinancing, should lead to lower GNMA net issuance in 2011. Overall, we expect gross issuance of GNMA MBS to decline from $363bn in 2010 to $282bn in 2011 and the net issuance to decline from $182bn in 2010 to $134bn in 2011.2011 Auto ABS Market Outlook Our main investment recommendation Auto ABS was a solid performer in 2010 amid robust issuance and range bound spreads. Issuance of auto floorplan and subprime ABS saw a significant uptick while prime loans and leases were down. GM’s purchase of AmeriCredit changes the captive issuer landscape, and we anticipate the new General Motors Financial to ramp up its near-prime and lease offerings in 2011. While credit enhancement decreased compared to 2009, mitigating factors help maintain credit protection, and we believe bonds are adequately enhanced as structures de-lever quickly. Auto collateral performance remains strong: early credit metrics show that 2010 vintage is performing on par with 2009 and better than 2007 and 2008, while recoveries have benefitted from a strong used car market.2011 CMBS Market Outlook Key Themes in the CMBS Market Property Fundamentals: As the economy slowly recovers, occupancy and rents at commercial properties are starting to rebound. However, because of the steep drop in occupancy levels during the previous recession, net operating income will continue to be weak across all property types through 2011, resulting in a steady stream of new delinquencies. Commercial Property Prices: Commercial property prices are likely to continue bouncing along the bottom as more distressed assets hit the market, while stronger trophy assets garner increased investor interest. Maturities: Although the $38bn in loans set to mature in 2011 have a weaker profile than those that matured in 2010, they will benefit from increased credit availability and investor appetite. We expect that 60% of loans coming due will be able to refinance, while another 10% will receive a maturity date extension. | 10 |
  12. 12. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Global Collaboration -Running ThemesThe coming surge in food prices Global Economics and Strategy Even with lacklustre growth in advanced economies, another multiyear surge in food prices is likely given rapidly growing demand for food in the developing world, constraints and uncertainties surrounding food supply and the development of increasingly powerful feedback loops. We construct a Nomura Food Vulnerability Index for 80 countries. We also discuss: Macro implications, trading recommendations from our fixed income and equity strategy teams and specific stock ideas.The case for capital controls in Asia Asia Special Report –Global Economics Under certain conditions, capital controls can be a legitimate policy response to surging inflows, but they are no panacea. In this Special Report we draw on a scorecard approach and our country specialists to assess which countries in the region are most likely to impose controls. Free-flowing foreign capital is no doubt beneficial to the world economy, but the experience in emerging economies is that sudden surges can fuel asset bubbles and, if the inflows suddenly reverse, a high risk of financial crisis. Asian policymakers raised this concern at the recent IMF-World Bank annual meetings, and for good reason: the growth rates and interest rates of Asian economies are now so much higher than those of the advanced economies.Machinery China No barriers We believe rising labour costs, an improving product mix and gradually increasing pricing power will bring the limelight back to strong growth in the machinery sector. We would advise investors to focus on excavators and concrete machinery: these should be 2011’s fastest growing segments. SANY, Zoomlion and Komatsu are our top BUYs on this basis. With listed China exposure still limited to HKSE, we also recommend Japanese suppliers Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Toshiba Machine and Nabtesco. Possible negative growth in March 2011 could hurt share prices, while strong volume growth from 2Q and onwards should support share-price appreciation. We expect rising mechanisation in China as a consequence of labour cost increases. Chinese construction machinery makers will likely become more competitive due to strong growth of the domestic market, improving product quality and technology level. | 11 |
  13. 13. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Global Collaboration -Running ThemesGlobal Memory A new direction We are in the middle of a megatrend – the rise of tablets and smartphones. While we think this will dent DRAM demand in the short term, we believe it will benefit the overall memory industry substantially in terms of earnings for several years to come. Samsung Electronics is best prepared for this transition, in our view, and our top pick. We are also BUYers of Hynix and Toshiba. The share prices of memory names move in tandem with memory prices. With the bottom of the memory market in sight, we see memory share prices likely to gather momentum soon.Global Mobile Phone trends Android momentum drives… We expect 2011 handset market trends to follow 2010 patterns, but with an increasing shift to mid-range smartphones, with low-end smartphones key to growth in 2012. The industry shift is continuing, with Apple and Android likely to hold a 50% revenue share in 2012, at the expense of Nokia and RIM. In conjunction with a number of company reports published today (HTC, Motorola, RIM and ZTE), we are updating our forecasts for the global handset market. On a like-for-like basis, our handset unit estimates show an increase from 11% to 16% in 2010, from 9% to 11% in 2011 and from 7% to 10% in 2012. Our handset market revenue forecasts increase to 13% in 2010, from 9% and to 11% from 9% in 2011. Full details are shown in the table below.Smart Grids IT for electric power networks—a new global battleground Smart grid investment is likely to be substantial over a long time frame, but given the ongoing technology standardization and various types of testing, it could take several years to get fully under way, except in areas such as advanced metering infrastructure (AMI). We accordingly see two groups of smart grid-related companies: those with strong short-term earnings growth potential and those with attractive longer-term strategies. | 12 |
  14. 14. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Global Collaboration -Running ThemesLED lighting Change spurred by demand shift from TVs to lighting Demand for LEDs used in TVs has not grown as much as previously anticipated, but we think demand for LEDs used in general lighting has gotten off to a solid start. As demand shifts to general lighting LEDs, which require high-variety, small-quantity production, from TV LEDs, which require low-variety, mass production, we think competitive factors in all facets of the value chain could change. We previously believed that the LED lighting market would take off in earnest during 2010 through 2011 (refer to Report no. 10-121, LED lighting: The final—and biggest—LED application coming to prominence, issued 26 March 2010).Cosmetics in China C-Bons integration to boost Beiersdorf’s top line and margins In this report, we take a close look at the Chinese cosmetics market and try to assess the relative strengths and weaknesses of the companies under our coverage. With China expected to become the largest cosmetics market in the world over the next 15 years (#3 today) and already representing the primary engine of growth for the sector, we see companies with clear and durable competitive advantages in the region as well positioned to deliver superior medium-term earnings growth at a group level. We believe the market has been too focused on one number – the proportion of total sales derived from China.China Auto and auto parts Passengers in front Auto sales in China are set to expand by 28% to 17.5mn units in 2010F, following 46% growth in 2009. Sales have been underpinned by favourable government policies, momentum inland, and fundamental demand backed by rising personal wealth. We believe there is plenty of gas left in the tank. Our forecasts call for 15% growth in 2011F to 20mn, driven by inland demand (favouring small cars) and replacement demand (upward shift in product mix). We look for continued momentum in passenger cars, taking sales to 12.8mn (up 16.4%). Prices should stay strong in 2011F, with industry utilization remaining above 80% amid a modest 15% forecast rise in capacity to 15mn. | 13 |
  15. 15. 2011 Global Outlooks - Global Research 2011 Global Collaboration -Running ThemesRail equipment Rail on a growth track: next stops Russia and India Both Russia and India have over EUR 200bn of railway development planned, although financing is not yet fully ringfenced: Mainline, freight and high-speed development is starting. While both countries are more open markets than China, we think that localisation and partnerships will be key to accessing these markets. Solid rail equipment demand forecast by Unife: global growth of 2.3% for 2008-15. Faster growth of 4% likely for 2010-15. LatAm, Middle East and Africa, and CIS regions are all forecast to grow fastest at around 4.5% pa to 2015. Europe to grow at a steady 2.2% pa on the back of signalling, services and fleet renewal demand, Asia slowing to 1.3% owing to expected completion of Chinas high-speed build-out.EUVL poised for mass production Japanese lithography equipment industry facing extinction Extreme ultraviolet lithography (EUVL) is fast emerging as the main candidate to be the next generation in semiconductor lithography technologies. Even companies that had previously viewed double patterning technology (DPT), a technique that allows existing light sources to continue to be used, as the main candidate have been substantially veering toward EUVL for mass production. While we think EUVL will be the mainstream mass production technology in five years’ time, we see risks in basing opinions of companies on changes in lithography technology five years out.Global capital goods: demand and competition in China Japanese/European companies strong in core parts/services Chinese manufacturers are expanding production and increasing sophistication. Sharply rising labor costs have motivated company managers to invest in factory automation (FA), while the accompanying rise in personal incomes is spurring sales of autos and electronics. These factors are combining to create a virtuous cycle beneficial to machinery demand. We expect Japanese and European companies to maintain their technological edge in core components, especially for FA. | 14 |

In most cases, the Fair Value will equal the analystsassessment of the current intrinsic fair value of the stock using an appropriate valuation methodology such as DiscountedCash Flow or Multiple analysis etc. However, if the analyst doesnt think the market will revalue the stock over the specifiedtime horizon due to a lack of events or catalysts, then the fair value may differ from the intrinsic fair value. In most cases,therefore, our recommendation is an assessment of the difference between current market price and our estimate ofcurrent intrinsic fair value. Recommendations are set with a 6-12 month horizon unless specified otherwise. Accordingly,within this horizon, price volatility may cause the actual upside or downside based on the prevailing market price to differfrom the upside or downside implied by the recommendation.A Strong buy recommendation indicates that upside is more than 20%.A Buy recommendation indicates that upside is between 10% and 20%.A Neutral recommendation indicates that upside or downside is less than 10%.A Reduce recommendation indicates that downside is between 10% and 20%.A Sell recommendation indicates that downside is more than 20%.SECTORSA Bullish rating means most stocks in the sector have (or the weighted average recommendation of the stocks undercoverage is) a positive absolute recommendation.A Neutral rating means most stocks in the sector have (or the weighted average recommendation of the stocks undercoverage is) a neutral absolute recommendation.A Bearish rating means most stocks in the sector have (or the weighted average recommendation of the stocks undercoverage is) a negative absolute recommendation.Price targetsPrice targets, if discussed, reflect in part the analysts estimates for the companys earnings.
