The Chinese Real Estate Developer Debacles continues to spread from Evergrande to other developers as China’s Central Bank cuts rates due to Omicron spread.
First, China’s Central Bank cut their 1 year medium-term lending rate to 2.85% from 2.95%. And the growing malaise in China’s real estate development continues.
Fresh turmoil rocked Chinese property bonds on Monday on concern over the true scale of the industry’s hidden debts, deepening a selloff among higher-rated firms.
A Logan Group Co. note due 2023 sank 14.1 cents to a record low 62.9 cents after Debtwire reported the developer could be on the hook for $812 million of guarantees on outstanding obligations due through 2023. Country Garden Holdings Co.’s bond due 2024 tumbled 12.9 cents to 67.7 cents, extending last week’s selloff for the country’s biggest developer.
Let’s see if the US Federal Reserve follows through with it rates increases when China is cutting their rates.
