Indices Performance
P/E Dividend Yield
Quarter Ago
Indian equity markets gained on the last day of the week. The main
reasons behind the rise were softening of crude oil prices and a stronger
rupee. Investors were also buoyed by upbeat earnings of some metal and
financial sector majors. The week had seen investors fret over rise in crude
oil prices and a weak rupee as these exert pressure on the country’s
inflation. The worries were eased to some extent as the week ended.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 0.87% and
0.97%, respectively, to close at 39,067.33 and 11,754.65, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid-Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.44% and 0.17%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 1077 scrips advancing
and 1451 scrips declining. A total of 148 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Metal was the major gainer, up
1.92%, followed by S&P BSE Bankex, up 1.53%, and S&P BSE Oil & Gas, up
1.23%. S&P BSE Information Technology and S&P BSE Energy gained 1.2%
and 1.05%, respectively.
As per data from the Reserve bank of India, Bank credit has increased
14.19% to Rs. 96.45 lakh crore and deposits grew 10.60% to Rs. 125.30
lakh crore in the fortnight ended Apr 12, 2019. During the same time a
year ago, deposits were at Rs. 113.29 lakh crore and advances stood at Rs.
84.46 lakh crore. In the fiscal ended Mar 2019, bank credit rose 13.24%
and deposits rose 10.03%.
According to a report by the World Economic Forum, India may have a
huge consumer demand by 2030 following increased incomes and a billion
diverse internet users. The report mentions that rise in income will
upgrade the Indian economy from a bottom-of-the-pyramid economy to a
middle-class led one as consumer expenditure might increase from $1.5
trillion to around $6 trillion by 2030. The report also mentioned that India
will uplift around 25 million households out of poverty and reduce the
share of households below the poverty line from 15% to 5%.
According to a major credit rating company, state-owned oil marketing
companies may see some risk in the near to medium term. This is because
the government has asked to increase shareholder returns by paying
second interim dividend and undertake share buyback.
According to a report from U.S., the country has placed India on its
priority watchlist claiming lack of “sufficient measurable improvements”
to its intellectual property (IP) framework. India has taken steps to address
intellectual property challenges and promote IP protection and
enforcement in last one year. However, these measures have not given
adequate benefits for innovators and creators, and long-standing
deficiencies persist

Asian equity markets were mixed because of a mixed set of corporate
earnings reports and falling oil prices. This even overshadowed upbeat
U.S. GDP data and growing optimism over a possible U.S.-China trade deal.
U.S. Treasury Secretary told the media that both sides are getting into
the final laps” of their negotiations. Today (as of Apr 30), Asian markets
opened lower after reports showed losses by a major electronic company
and less than expected growth in China’s manufacturing activity in Apr
2019. Nikkei was closed while Hang Seng fell 0.31% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets closed higher as investors
resorted to bargain hunting after Eurozone economic sentiment
weakened for a tenth straight month in Apr 2019.
As per the last close, U.S markets stood in the sidelines as investors
were reluctant to make any significant moves ahead of the announcement
of the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary policy decision due on May 1.
Investors were also cautious ahead of the release of U.S. jobs data on May
3 and major corporate earnings.
