Ausblick Deutschland: Robuste Konjunktur unterstützt Merkels Wiederwahl
Abstract: Deutsches BIP: Weitere Aufwärtsrisiken. Nach dem beeindruckenden BIP-Wachstum von 0,6 % gegen Vorquartal in Q1 deuten weiche Indikatoren (ifo, PMI) auf keinerlei Verlangsamung hin. Die Beschäftigung ist in 2017 bis dato ähnlich stark wie in 2016 gestiegen. Damit könnte unsere Prognose einer Zunahme des privaten Verbrauchs um 1% in 2017 zu vorsichtig sein. Im Winterhalbjahr haben sich die Ausfuhren zusammen mit dem Welthandel erholt. Allerdings gibt es Anzeichen, dass die Dynamik des Welthandels ihren Höhepunkt erreicht haben könnte. Zusammen mit den anhaltenden geopolitischen Unsicherheiten dürfte das moderate Exportwachstum die Investitionstätigkeit dämpfen. Nach der Bekanntgabe des Wachstums von 0,6% für Q1 haben wir unsere Prognose für 2017 von 1,0% auf 1,3% angehoben. Jüngste Umfragen deuten weitere Aufwärtsrisiken an. In 2018 könnte die deutsche Konjunktur überhitzen.

Focus Germany: Strong economy supports Merkel’s re-election chances
Abstract: After Q1’s sturdy 0.6% qoq GDP growth, soft indicators do not signal any moderation of the growth momentum. Employment in 2017 so far, has been expanding at similar clip as in 2016, making our 1% consumption forecast for 2017 quite conservative. Exports have rebounded in the winter half – in line with global trade. The growth momentum of global trade seems to have peaked; therefore, we remain cautious, predicting 3.6% German export growth in 2017 after 2.7% last year. In combination with lingering geo-political uncertainty this will weigh on investment spending, where a utilization rate of 2pp above its long-term average suggests a still limited necessity to invest. Following Q1 GDP growth of 0.6% we have revised our 2017 GDP forecast to 1.3% (1.1%). Latest confidence surveys, however, hint at further upside potential and increasing risks of over-heating for 2018. Political observers in Germany have recently been focusing on the SPD’s ups and downs in the polls and the CDU’s reverse showing while smaller parties are fighting for public attention. From the present point of view (polls) a Jamaica coalition is the sole arithmetically feasible alternative to a renewed grand coalition after the September election.

Ausblick Deutschland: Positive Signale
Abstract: Im Jahr 2016 war das Wachstum des Welthandels mit +1,3% schwach und in manchen Monaten sogar rückläufig. Im Winterhalbjahr aber nahm der Welthandel mit einem Plus von rund 3% gegenüber den Vorjahresmonaten wieder Fahrt auf. Unser Modell prognostiziert allerdings nur ein moderates Wachstum von etwas mehr als 2% im Jahr 2017 und rund 3% im Jahr 2018. Aufgrund der aktuellen Wachstumsdynamik und struktureller Unsicherheiten beschreibt dies wohl eher den unteren Rand des Prognosekorridors. Die insgesamt vorsichtige Prognose steht allerdings auch mit den zunehmenden globalen Handelsrestriktionen im Einklang, denn trotz gegenteiliger Beteuerungen auf G20-Gipfeln steigt die Zahl der Handelshemmnisse an.

Focus Germany: Positive signs
Abstract: Growth in global trade almost stagnated at just 1.3% in 2016, and in some months was even negative. During winter, global trade picked up again, rising by around 3% compared to the same period a year earlier. Given the positive sentiment prevailing across the globe, this rebound could well continue. However, this trend is not yet being fully reflected in other hard economic indicators, usually highly correlated with global trade, and sentiment may therefore overstate the actual trend a little. Still, our simple model of world trade, which suggests moderate growth of just over 2% in 2017 and around 3% in 2018 might represent the lower limit of the forecast range. However, compared to previous cycles the upturn could remain weak, not least because of the global trade restrictions that have been progressively ratcheted up since 2008.

Ausblick Deutschland: Öffentliche Investitionen und Wohnungsbau ziehen an
Abstract: Öffentliche Investitionen: Mehr in der Pipeline. In der internationalen Debatte werden öffentliche Investitionen vielfach als nützlicher Hebel für eine höhere Binnennachfrage gesehen. Trotz internationaler Kritik und politischer Willensbekundung sind die öffentlichen Investitionen in Deutschland in den letzten zwei Jahren nur moderat gestiegen. In den kommenden Jahren dürften die öffentlichen Investitionen jedoch spürbar zulegen.

Focus Germany: Investment: Public, residential – gradually picking up
Abstract: In international debate public investment is often regarded as a useful lever for promoting higher domestic demand. Despite international criticism and political declarations of intent, public investment in Germany has only increased moderately over the past two years and has remained average, at best, on an international scale. In the coming years, however, public investment is expected to grow significantly. The current investment plans for the federal budget are 40% higher than those adopted in 2013. Public contracts for the construction industry in 2016 were between 15 and 27% above the average of the previous 10 years. The excellent state of the public finances at the various government levels also supports the prospect of increasing investment growth. However, severe capacity shortages in the construction industry are likely to mean that the high demand for investment will not quickly lead to an increase in construction activity.

Focus Germany: Growth and inflation leave ECB still unfazed
Abstract: At face value the pick-up of GDP growth at the end of 2016 (Q4: +0.4% qoq vs. +0.1% prev.) seems to fit with improving sentiment. However, given its composition we would argue that underlying growth was weaker than the headline suggests. We stick to our below consensus GDP forecast for 2017 (1.1%) and only make cosmetic changes in the details. We are raising our inflation forecast slightly overall for 2017, from 1.6% to 1.7%, compared with only 0.5% in 2016. We still expect core inflation to be only slightly above 1% in 2017. If the signs of global price increases are confirmed, then we could in fact see a more pronounced increase in core inflation, particularly if rising prices translate into second-round effects when wage negotiations are conducted in 2018.

Ausblick Deutschland: Wachstum und Inflation dürften EZB noch kalt lassen
Abstract: Auf den ersten Blick scheint das anziehende BIP-Wachstum zum Jahresende 2016 (Q4: +0,4% gg. Vq.; zuvor: +0,1%) konsistent mit den angestiegenen Konjunkturindikatoren. Allerdings zeigt die Zusammensetzung des BIP-Wachstums eine eher schwächere zugrundeliegende Dynamik. Wir behalten deshalb unsere unter dem Konsens liegende BIP-Prognose von 1,1% für das Jahr 2017 bei. Unsere Inflationsprognose für 2017 heben wir insgesamt minimal an auf 1,7% von 1,6% nach nur 0,5% in 2016. Dabei erwarten wir die Kerninflation in 2017 weiter bei gut 1%. Sollten sich die Anzeichen für den globalen Preisauftrieb bestätigen, könnte die Kerninflation aber deutlicher zulegen, insbesondere wenn in 2018 anziehende Preise Zweitrundeneffekte bei den Lohnverhandlungen nach sich ziehen sollten. Wir erwarten weiterhin, dass die EZB erst im September Aussagen zum „Tapering“ treffen wird, die dann ab Januar 2018 umgesetzt werden. Von der Pressekonferenz erwarten wir Hinweise in Richtung eines langsamen und graduellen Übergangs zu einer weniger expansiven Geldpolitik.

Gemischte Entwicklung in der Kreditvergabe, solide deutsche Konjunktur in Q4 2016
Abstract: Lending to German corporates and self-employed showed markedly diverging trends in Q4: while business with the manufacturing sector slumped, the upswing in lending to the services sector accelerated further. Bottom line, outstanding volumes were up 0.3% qoq / 2% yoy. In Q4, foreign-owned banks and Landesbanks surprisingly benefited strongly. Corporate bond issuance and leasing reached new records in the full year; stock issuance collapsed to a new historic low though. The German economy grew solidly in Q4 (GDP +0.4% qoq). Particularly construction and public consumption performed well, whereas net exports and investment again contributed negatively. GDP expanded 1.9% in the full year, but growth may slow in 2017 (+1.1%), driven in part by higher energy prices and elevated global political uncertainty (available only in German).

Focus Germany: New SPD frontrunner unlikely to defeat Merkel
Abstract: 2016 GDP growth picked up further relative to the previous two years (1.9% vs. 1.7%). Growth was strongly tilted towards consumption thanks to several tailwinds (refugee crisis, low inflation, labour market strength), while slowing exports weighed on private equipment investment: With several tailwinds fading and a strong workday effect weighing, GDP growth looks set to slow to 1.1% in 2017. Recent sentiment indicators herald some upside risks for the current quarter. However, the 2.3 point drop in the expectations component of the January ifo index seems to corroborate our more cautious stance. In an unexpected turn, SPD party leader Gabriel announced that he would not run against Angela Merkel. Instead Martin Schulz, the former president of the European Parliament, will be the party’s frontrunner. Mr. Schulz’s unexpected nomination is likely to push the SPD’s campaign for the federal election on September 24 but unlikely to derail Merkel.
