US: Worries that the U.S. economy is heading into stagflation are overblown, several high-profile bond market investors said Monday at the 2021 Milken Global Conference program.
Stagflation – when stagnant economic activity is combined with high inflation – is “extremely unlikely,” PIMCO Chief Executive Emmanuel Roman said in a panel discussion at the conference, held in Beverly Hills, California.
Other participants in the panel discussion – including PGIM CEO David Hunt; Invesco CEO Martin Flanagan; Elizabeth Burton, chief investment officer for the Employees’ Retirement System of Hawaii; and Scott Minerd, Guggenheim Partners global chief investment officer – largely agreed that the threat of stagflation was remote.
With energy prices on the rise even as the economy remains constrained by supply-chain gridlock, an increasing number of investors have started to fret about the specter of stagflation in recent months.
In the past, a stagflation environment has tended to weigh on stock performance, analysts at Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS) said in a report published earlier this month.
Eurozone: Britain said on Monday it was intervening in a proposed 6.3 billion-pound ($8.65 billion) takeover by U.S. engineering and aerospace firm Parker-Hannifin (NYSE: PH) of its British rival Meggitt (LON: MGGT), citing national security grounds.
The business minister Kwasi Kwarteng issued a so-called “intervention notice” to review the impact of the takeover.
“The UK is open for business; however, we will take steps to protect our national security, when necessary,” Kwarteng said.
Parker-Hannifin said in August it had agreed to buy London-listed Meggitt and promised a series of commitments, including on UK jobs, in an attempt to fend off concerns about the deal.
The planned takeover was the latest by U.S. investors for British firms which have become attractively priced after the COVID-19 pandemic and Brexit which hit the value of the pound.
