Credit rating agencies Fitch and Moody's lowered South Africa's sovereign ratings further into junk on Friday on rising debt and more likely weakening in the fiscal strength, while S&P Global affirmed on hopes that credit strength will offset them.Fitch expects the country's GDP to remain below 2019 levels even in 2022 as the debt pile adds pressure to public finances in Africa's most industrialized economy.Moody's as well as Fitch's outlook on the country's sovereign ratings is negative, making further downgrades more likely in the future.Fitch downgraded South Africa to 'BB-' from 'BB', while Moody's lowered it to 'Ba2' from 'Ba1'.In March, Moody's became the last of the big three international ratings firms to downgrade South Africa to sub-investment grade, after S&P Global and Fitch moved there in 2017.With the worsening of the COVID-19 pandemic, South Africa's tax revenue fell as the economy contracted, while spending to contain the spread of the virus and cushion its impact on the poor increased.

Global shares ease as vaccine euphoria wanes and US lockdowns come into force 2020/11/17 11:05:23 Business Insider
Summary List Placement Global equity indices fell on Tuesday, as investors booked profits on the vaccine-inspired rally to record highs following drugmaker Moderna's announcement the day before on the effectiveness of its rival offering to that of Pfizer. A raft of restrictions on movement across the United States to help stem the spread of the virus that has already infected over 11 million people and killed more than a quarter of a million neutralized some of the euphoria that lifted markets this week. Futures on the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones were down between 0.3-0.4%, while the Nasdaq 100 diverged, rising 0.3%, as some of the technology stocks that were sold down fairly heavily on Monday recovered some ground. The Dow Jones posted the first record close since February on Monday after Moderna said its vaccine candidate had proven to be 94.5% effective in clinical trials and, crucially, was easier to transport and store than rival Pfizer's vaccine.

Tesla stock on S&P 500 index from Dec 21, shares up 13% 2020/11/17 07:46:30 Sify.com
San Francisco: The stock of electric car-maker Tesla soared more than 13 per cent after S&P Global said that shares of the Elon Musk-owned company will be added to the S&P 500, a broad measure of the most prominent stocks listed in the US. Tesla which has a market cap of $390 billion will officially join the benchmark index prior to trading on December 21, the S&P Dow Jones Indices said in a statement late on Monday. It is a milestone for Tesla that will expand its investor base and put the electric automaker in the same league as Apple, Berkshire Hathaway and Microsoft. "Tesla will be one of the largest weight additions to the S&P 500 in the last decade, and consequently will generate one of the largest funding trades in S&P 500 history," S&P said in a statement. "However, Tesla itself is very liquid, and adding the stock at the upcoming December quarterly rebalancing coincides with the expiration of stock options, stock futures, stock-index options, and stock-index futures, which may help facilitate the funding trade".
