JAKARTA – PT Semen Indonesia (Persero) Tbk said, most of the company’s revenue in the first semester of 2013 was derived from the domestic market. First half of the company’s revenue reached Rp 10.91 trillion, equivalent to 95.53% of total revenue in the first half of this year.
Dwi Soetjipto, President Director of Semen Indonesia, said that the value of domestic sales increased by 26.42% compared to sales in the same period last year of Rp 8.63 trillion.
Of the domestic market, the composition of the Indonesian Cement revenues derived from customers in Java and outside Java almost equal. Java market contributed revenue of Rp 5.72 trillion or 52.43% of total domestic sales. Meanwhile, consumers outside of Java contribute to the revenue of Rp 5.19 trillion or 47.57% of total domestic sales.
In addition to maintaining dominance in the domestic market, Indonesian Cement continues to boost sales to foreign markets, especially countries in Southeast Asia. From January to June this year, Indonesian Cement has achieved record revenues in foreign markets amounted to Rp 511.64 billion.
“This number jumped nearly 170% compared to overseas sales in the first half of last year is only Rp 30.34 billion,” said Dwi
U.S. home prices jumped 12.2 percent in May compared with a year ago, the biggest annual gain since March 2006. The increase shows the housing recovery is strengthening.
The Standard & Poor’s/Case-Shiller 20-city home price index released Tuesday also surged 2.4 percent in May from April. The month-over-month gain nearly matched the 2.6 percent increase in April from March – the highest on record.
The price increases were widespread. All 20 cities showed gains in May from April and compared with a year ago.
Prices in Dallas and Denver reached the highest level on records dating back to 2000. That marks the first time since the housing bust that any city has reached an all-time high.
Home values are rising as more people are bidding on a scarce supply of houses for sale. Steady price increases, along with stable job gains and historically low mortgage rates, have in turn encouraged more Americans to buy homes.
One concern is that higher mortgage rates could slow home sales. But many economists say rates remain low by historical standards and would need to rise much faster to halt the momentum.
Svenja Gudell, senior economist at Zillow, a home price data provider, said a big reason for the recent price gains is that foreclosed homes make up a smaller proportion of overall sales. Foreclosed homes are usually sold by banks at fire-sale prices.
“Typical home values have appreciated at roughly half this pace for the past several months, which is still very robust,” Gudell said.
Gudell said higher mortgage rates and a likely increase in the number of homes for sale in the coming months should slow the pace of price gains and stabilize the housing market.
The index covers roughly half of U.S. homes. It measures prices compared with those in January 2000 and creates a three-month moving average. The May figures are the latest available. They are not adjusted for seasonal variations, so the monthly gains reflect more buying activity over the summer.
Despite the recent gains, home prices are still about 25 percent below the peaks they reached in July 2006. That’s a key reason the supply of homes for sale remains low, as many homeowners are waiting to recoup their losses before putting their houses on the market.
Dallas and Denver, the two cities that reached record highs, were not hit hard by the housing bust and therefore didn’t experience the sharp price swings like cities in Nevada, Arizona, California and Florida.
In Dallas, prices fell only 11.2 percent from their previous peak in June 2007 through February 2009. That’s far less than Las Vegas, where prices plummeted by more than half. Since bottoming out, home prices in Dallas have increased nearly 14 percent.
In Denver, prices dropped 14.3 percent from August 2006 until they also hit bottom in February 2009. Since then, they have risen 17.3 percent.
The biggest price gains are occurring in many of the states that experienced the worst housing bust.
Prices jumped 24.5 percent in San Francisco in May from a year earlier, the largest increase. Las Vegas reported the next biggest gain at 23.3 percent, followed by Phoenix at 20.6 percent. All three remain well below their peak prices.
The smallest yearly gains were in New York, at 3.3 percent, followed by Cleveland with 3.4 percent and Washington, D.C. at 6.5 percent.
Higher home prices help the economy in several ways. They encourage more sellers to put their homes on the market, boosting supply and sustaining the housing recovery. And they make homeowners feel wealthier, encouraging consumers to spend more. Banks are also more willing to provide mortgage loans when homes are appreciating in value.
Mortgage rates have surged since early May, though the increase would have had little impact on the current report. The average rate on a 30-year fixed mortgage has jumped a full percentage point since early May and reached a two-year high of 4.51 percent in late June.
Mortgage rates jumped after Chairman Ben Bernanke said the Federal Reserve could slow its bond-buying program later this year if the economy continues to improve. The Fed’s bond purchases have kept long-term interest rates low, encouraging more borrowing and spending.
In recent weeks, Bernanke and other Fed members have stressed that any change in the bond-buying program will depend on the economy’s health, not a set calendar date.
Since those comments, interest rates have declined. The average on the 30-year mortgage was 4.31 percent last week.
The Fed begins a two-day policy meeting Tuesday and could clarify its remarks further when the meeting concludes on Wednesday.
Ahead of Eid, people usually decorate their homes with fresh flowers. Residents usually invade the largest flower market in Jakarta, Rawa Belong.
Head of Business Unit Means Sentra Rawa Belong Flower Market Flower M Muljadi said the most sought after community interest ahead of Eid is the tuberose flower.
He considered the tuberose flower is highly sought after by people who want to decorate her house when Lebaran. “Tuberose became the best-selling interest ahead of the Eid al-Fitr,” said Muljadi to Tempo in his office, Tuesday, August 6, 2013, afternoon.
Mulyadi revealed in January, about 800 thousand to one million tuberose flower stalks are sold out for the H-3 to H-1 or takbiran night. Tuberose stalks one for Rp 5000-6000. “Imagine if sold 800ribu stalk, flower traders how the overall turnover in the Rawa Belong market,” said Muljadi.
A similar sentiment was expressed by Toyib (59), flower merchants Ambarawa origin, Central Java. Toyib admitted Tuberose flower sales increased dramatically ahead of Eid. “Especially at night takbiran, I could sell a lot. Were so many to forget how the stalks are sold,” said Toyib.
Grace, 39 years old, one of the consumers who buy flowers Tuberose in Rawa Belong market is said every year to buy flowers to decorate her house. Once purchased, Grace willing to spend Rp 500 thousand to 100 tuberose stalks.
“It’s over the years I bought here, to beautify the house,” said the mother of two children. “She smelled too bad, make a fresh home.”
Muljadi assess the increase in sales of the Tuberose is affected by the fall holidays and leave together ahead of Idul Fitri. According to him, if the schedule falls off with the 4-5 days ahead of Eid, the tuberose sales will decline, but not too significant.
“So depending on the holiday of Eid fall when, as in 2008, when it fell off a longer time after Lebaran, so our sales to decline,” said Muljadi. “Yes, because people do not have time to buy.”
