PHI Group, Inc. (OTCMKTS: PHIL) is constantly among the top traded stocks in small caps with an enormous international following that is heavily accumulation at current levels. PHIL is among the most searched for stocks in small caps too and its so popular there is even a $PHILLIONAIRE T-Shirt for sale on Amazon. Microcapdaily has reported on PHIL many times before and we have discussed in depth the Company and its subsidiary funds and the hard work by CEO Henry Fahman (who has recently acquired over 400,000,000 shares of PHIL) to bring the Company to “pink current” which has now been accomplished; a big step forward for the Company which recently launched its ADE token in South Korea in connection with the Asia Diamond Exchange. The Asia Diamond Exchange is a modern bourse to be established in affiliation with the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB). It will be the first-ever vital rough diamond exchange in Asia, comparable to the diamond exchanges in Antwerp and Dubai (UAE). PHIL price to beat is recently highs of $0.0198, a break over and its blue skies ahead. The stock has massive liquidity as legions of new shareholders including some top players in small caps continue to accumulate. 

PHIL filed 2 enormous 8ks recently announcing up to $3.5 billion in funding. According to the 8ks: Effective November 14, 2021 the registrant signed a loan agreement deed with Neok Financial Incorporated, a corporation organized under the existing laws of United Arab Emirates, with its office address located at Trade Center Road, Bur Dubai, Dubai, United Arab Emirates for a loan program in the amount of $2,000,000,000 which carries a fixed preferred rate of annual interest for thirty-five years, to be repaid on a monthly basis over a period of 420 months. Effective October 17, 2021 the registrant signed a contract agreement with Haj Finance Group, a corporation registered in Oman, Hatat House Ground Floor, Ruwi, Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, for a financing program in the amount of $1,500,000,000 which carries a fixed preferred rate of annual interest for thirty-five years with a three-year grace period. The closing of this transaction is to occur after the registration of a Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) within United Arab Emirates, the signing of the closing documents and the approval of the transfer of funds by the Central Bank of United Arab Emirates (CBUAE). The registrant intends to use the funds for the establishment of the Asia Diamond Exchange and the Multi-Commodities Center in Vietnam, for financing selective projects in the areas of real estate, renewable energy, healthcare, and for other investment opportunities in connection with PHILUX Global Funds SCA, SICA-RAIF, a group of Luxembourg bank funds sponsored by the registrant. 

PHI Group, Inc. (OTCMKTS: PHIL) is focused on advancing PHILUX Global Funds, a group of Luxembourg bank funds organized as “Reserved Alternative Investment Fund” (“RAIF”), and developing the Asia Diamond Exchange (“ADE”) in Vietnam. PHIL has a powerhouse management team behind it; The Company is led by CEO Mr. Henry Fahman a top-level executive who has more than 30 years’ experience in general management, finance, investments and corporate strategy and is a graduate from Harvard Business School. Previously, Mr. Fahman served as a Resettlement Coordinator for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Currently Mr. Fahman is chairman of the board and CEO of PHIL and all its subsidiaries.   

The Asia Diamond Exchange is a modern bourse to be established in affiliation with the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB). It will be the first-ever vital rough diamond exchange in Asia, comparable to the diamond exchanges in Antwerp (Belgium)  and Dubai (UAE). The Company has launched an ADE token in South Korea in connection with the Asia Diamond Exchange. The token is designed to optimize transparency and fair pricing to the diamond industry to provide enhanced benefits to all stakeholders. By validating transactions on a blockchain, there are no chances of counterfeiting or substandard pieces. Consumers will be able to design and purchase custom diamond jewelry and loose gemstones at significantly better prices by using the ADE tokens. The ADE tokens will be deflationary by setting aside profits to purchase and burn tokens as well as systematically continuing the buy-back of PHIL stock on an ongoing basis in the future. International investors may purchase and trade the tokens once they are listed on top exchanges such as Coinbase and Binance. 

PHIL continues to diversify recently acquiring a 70% stake in Five Grain Treasure Spirits Co., Ltd., a company with over one hundred years of tradition in Jilin Province, China. This is a unique, special situation transaction that is expected to create substantial value for the Company, its shareholders and all stakeholders. According to the Five-Grain development plan, once the acquisition is completed, the company will follow a three-prong growth strategy to reach 200,000,000 liters of bulk spirits per year to supply to other beverage companies and develop its own brand using proprietary manufacturing methods and preferred distribution channels.

The Company has been busy cementing one deal after another; they signed an MOU with TPP Holdings Group an established Vietnamese company specializing in real estate investment, development and construction. TPP Holdings will participate in the Luxembourg real estate fund and cooperate in the development and construction of the Multi-Commodities Center and the Asia Diamond Exchange in Vietnam. Management believes this partnership will bring tremendous benefits to all the stakeholders, including the diamond-producing countries and the people and economy of Vietnam.

On November 23 PHIL reported its subsidiary CO2-1-0 (CARBON) Corp., has signed a MOU with SuperGreen Solutions to cooperate in a new disruptive carbon mitigation program through worldwide environmentally sustainable projects. According to the MOU, SuperGreen and CO2-1-0 (CARBON) will cooperate in acquiring carbon credits from SuperGreen’s projects and from other project owners in the United States of America.

Unemployment Falls to 4.2 Percent in November as Economy Adds 210,000 Jobs

The rise in the index of aggregate hours would be equivalent to more than 630,000 jobs with no changes in workweeks.
The post Unemployment Falls to 4.2…

The rise in the index of aggregate hours would be equivalent to more than 630,000 jobs with no changes in workweeks.

The unemployment rate fell 0.4 percentage points in November, even though the economy added just 210,000 jobs. The drop in the unemployment rate went along with an increase in the employment-to-population ratio (EPOP) of 0.4 percentage points, corresponding to a rise in employment of more than 1.1 million in the household survey. The unemployment rate had not fallen this low following the Great Recession until September 2017.

The 210,000 job growth in the establishment survey is slower than generally expected, but it is important to note that it went along with an increase in the average workweek. The index of aggregate hours in the private sector increased by 0.5 percent in November. This would be the equivalent of more than 630,000 new jobs, with no change in the workweek.

This fits a story where employers are increasing hours since they are unable to hire new workers. We are seeing a reshuffling of the labor market where workers are looking for better jobs and employers are competing to attract workers, especially in lower paying sectors.

Declines in Unemployment Largest for Disadvantaged Groups

Nearly every demographic group saw a drop in unemployment in November, but the falls were largest for the groups that face labor market discrimination. The unemployment rate for Blacks fell by 1.2 percentage points to 6.7 percent, a level not reached following the Great Recession until March 2018 and never prior to that time. For Hispanics, the decline was 0.7 percentage points to 5.2 percent.

The unemployment rate for workers without a high school degree fell by 1.7 percentage points to 5.7 percent. By contrast, the unemployment rate for college grads fell by just 0.1 percentage points to 2.3 percent, 0.4 percentage points above its pre-pandemic low. The 5.7 percent rate for workers without a high school degree is 0.7 percentage points above the pre-pandemic low, although the monthly data are highly erratic.

The unemployment rate for people with a disability fell by 1.4 percentage points to 7.7 percent, while the EPOP rose by 1.1 percentage points to 21.5 percent. The latter figure is almost 2.0 percentage points above pre-pandemic peaks, indicating that the pandemic may have created new opportunities for people with a disability.

Share of Long-Term Unemployment Edges Up

The share of workers reporting they have been unemployed more than 26 weeks edged up slightly to 32.1 percent. It had been falling rapidly from a peak of 43.4 percent in March. It was under 20.0 percent before the pandemic hit. On the plus side, the share of unemployment due to voluntary quits increased by 1.0 percentage points to 12.5 percent. This share is still low for a 4.2 percent unemployment rate, but the high share of long-term unemployed depresses the share attributable to quits.

Wage Growth Still Strong for Lower Paid Workers

The average hourly pay of production workers is up 5.9 percent year-over-year. It has risen at a 6.6 percent annual rate comparing the last three months (September to November) with the prior three months (June to August). For restaurant workers the gains have been even larger, with the average hourly wage for production workers up 13.4 percent year-over-year, although the annual rate of growth slowed to 5.7 percent comparing the last three months with prior three months. Wages for the lowest paid workers are far outpacing inflation.

Manufacturing and Construction Both Add 31,000 Jobs in November

This continues a pattern of strong job growth in these sectors. Employment in construction is now down 1.5 percent from pre-pandemic levels, while manufacturing employment is down 2.0 percent.

Employment Lagging in Hard Hit Sectors

By contrast, employment is still lagging in the hardest hit sectors. The motion picture industry shed 3,400 jobs in November. It is now down 21.9 percent from pre-pandemic level.

Low-wage sectors are clearly having trouble attracting workers. Nursing and residential care facilities shed 11,000 jobs in November. Employment is now down 423,700 jobs (12.5 percent) from pre-recession level, accounting for most of the drop in health care employment. Childcare lost 2,100 in November, while home health care lost 300 jobs.

Retail lost 20,400 jobs in November. Employment in the sector is now down 1.1 percent from pre-pandemic levels; although the index of aggregate hours is up 1.1 percent.

Restaurants added just 11,000 workers, while hotels added 6,600. However, the index of aggregate hours for the leisure and hospitality sector (which comprises the two industries) rose 0.6 percent. This corresponds to a gain of almost 800,000 jobs with no change in the length of the workweek.

State and Local Governments Shed Another 27,000 Jobs

State and local government employment is now down 951,000, or 4.8 percent from pre-pandemic levels. This is almost certainly a supply side story, where these governments cannot easily raise pay to compete with the private sector in attracting workers.

Overwhelmingly Positive Report

This is another overwhelmingly positive report. The unemployment rate is more than a full percentage point lower than what CBO had projected before the passage of the American Recovery Plan. The most disadvantaged workers are seeing the greatest benefits in pay and employment opportunities. The economy looks to be very strong as long as another surge in the pandemic doesn’t derail it.

NFP React: Stocks lower after soft NFP report and Omicron jitters, No one named an FX manipulator

US stocks declined after a soft employment report and as traders remain on edge over the uncertainty with the Omicron variant. The next couple of weeks…

US stocks declined after a soft employment report and as traders remain on edge over the uncertainty with the Omicron variant. The next couple of weeks will remain volatile as the focus falls on the latest inflation report, the December 15th FOMC meeting, and further clarity on the impact with the Omicron variant. 

A record ISM Services reading did not excite traders, perhaps they focused more so on the supplier deliver delays, wage increases, and labor shortages. Technology stocks are getting hit hard as Facebook, Microsoft, and Square sell-off.  Didi shares fell on delisting plans and that raised the risk that other Chinese companies would follow.  

NFP

The US economy is adding jobs at a slower pace as employers are starting to have success luring people back to the labor force. If wages continue to rise, that will be the key for companies to reach their hiring targets. 

The November employment report showed US employers added 210,000 jobs, a miss of the 550,000 consensus estimate and well below the upwardly revised prior reading of 546,000 jobs. A headline miss with the nonfarm payroll report, may be mostly attributed to seasonal factors. The underlying components make this labor market report not so bad as people are coming back to the labor force, with the participation rate improving from 61.6% to 61.8%.

Wage pressures may be slowing as average hourly earnings dipped in November from 0.4% to 0.3%, but some of that could be attributed to the weakness in lower paying hospitality jobs. 

The Fed may view this as a positive employment report as minority unemployment improved significantly and the participation rate is now only 1.5 percentage points lower than in February 2020. Fed rate hike expectations are settling around two rate hikes next year. The headline jobs miss takes away momentum from an accelerated tapering but allows them to increase the taper pace by $5-10billion to the monthly pace. 

FX

The Treasury has placed 12 countries on a foreign exchange watchlist, bringing back China to the list, while adding Japan, Switzerland, and Germany.  The Treasury refrained from calling any country a currency manipulator, but both Vietnam and Taiwan will get enhanced analysis.

Commodities and Cryptos: Oil rallies, Gold holds onto gains post NFP, Bitcoin hovers

Oil Crude prices extended gains after a mixed payroll report showed the labor market recovery is moderating but still headed in the right direction. …

Oil

Crude prices extended gains after a mixed payroll report showed the labor market recovery is moderating but still headed in the right direction.  The Omicron variant continues to be the key to short-term crude demand outlook and the latest updates have been mixed.  A South African study showed that Omicron reinfection risk is 3X higher.  The study of 2.8 million positive COVID samples in South Africa showed the Omicron mutation has a substantial ability to evade immunity from prior infection.  As Omicron spreads across the US, energy traders can’t forget about Delta as hospital admissions are increasing across 39 states. 

The aftermath of the OPEC+ meeting on output has many traders believe that if Omicron poses a bigger risk to the short-term crude demand, that would be met with a quick response of production cuts.  

Gold

Gold prices initially popped after a big headline jobs miss lowered the chances that the Fed would double the taper speed at the December 15th FOMC meeting, which would also push back expectations for that first Fed rate hike.  After traders processed the entire employment report, they realized it was not as bad since the participation rate rose sharply with both black and Hispanic unemployment also improved significantly.

Gold is still near one-month lows as markets continue to anticipate two Fed rate hikes next year, which should keep the dollar in demand.  Even as the Fed seems poised to wrap up tapering around the start of the first quarter, traders are not confident on when real yields will turn positive and that should be a primary driver for gold to rally after Wall Street confidently fully prices in the first couple of Fed rate hikes.  Leading up to the December 15th FOMC decision, gold should consolidate between $1750 and $1800 as next week’s inflation report doesn’t come with an extremely hot inflation report that includes a reading of 7% or higher. 

Bitcoin

Bitcoin is in ‘no man’s land’ right now and that does not seem to be changing anytime soon.  The long-term bullish case remains intact but prices seem poised to consolidate between $52,000 and $60,000.
