Indian equity markets gained after media reports said the government
could exempt foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) from an increase in taxes.
The proposal to increase tax was announced in the Union Budget 2019-
20 and since then equity markets have witnessed huge outflows by FPIs.
Also, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) cutting interest rates by a more
than expected 35 basis points and promising liquidity support to the
financial sector on Aug 7, 2019, at its policy meet supported sentiment.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 1.74% and
1.63% to close at 37,327.36 and 11,032.45, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-
Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap gained 0.42% and 0.74%, respectively.
On the BSE sectoral front, all the sectors gained. S&P BSE Energy was
the major gainer, up 3.15%, followed by S&P BSE Auto and S&P BSE IT,
which gained 2.77% and 1.98%, respectively. S&P BSE Teck and S&P BSE
Oil & Gas gained 1.94% and 1.81%, respectively. S&P BSE Telecom and
S&P BSE Realty gained 1.74% and 1.65%, respectively.
Media reports showed the tax department has sent notices to GST-
registered businesses that have reported 20% or more decline in annual
revenue. Notices related to mismatch in declaration between GSTR-3B
(summary return) and GSTR-1 (outward supplies detail) have been a
mainstay but now the department is comparing firms’ earnings under
GST with that of erstwhile service and excise regime.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has taken two important steps in its
policy meet held recently to make access to credit easier for the crisis-
ridden non-banking financial companies (NBFCs). These are allowing
banks to on-lend to priority sectors through NBFCs and relaxation in
norms in banks’ counter-party exposure limit to single NBFC. So, now if a
bank lends to NBFCs for onward lending to the priority sectors, it will
automatically be considered as priority sector lending for the bank. On-
lending through non-banks to agriculture (investment credit) can be up
to Rs. 10 lakh, micro and small enterprises up to Rs. 20 lakh and housing
up to Rs. 20 lakh per borrower. On-lending to these three categories of
NBFCs would be classified as priority sector lending. Detailed guidelines
will be issued by month-end.
American jeweller Tiffany & Co. plans to form a joint venture with a
retail unit of Reliance Industries Ltd. to gain a foothold in the lucrative
Indian market. The New York-based jeweller plans to open stores in Delhi
and Mumbai by 2020.
HCL Technologies’ net profit declined 13.5% sequentially to Rs. 2,220
crore for the Apr-Jun 2019 quarter. The net profit was Rs. 2,568 in the
previous quarter. Revenue grew 4.2% QoQ and 17.0% YoY in constant
currency terms.
Hindustan Petroleum Corp Ltd’s net profit declined 53% to Rs. 811
crore in the Jun 2019 quarter mainly because of inventory losses caused
by fall in oil prices and lower refinery margins. Net profit was Rs. 1,719
crore in the year-ago period.
Asian equity markets majorly gained after China reported better than
expected export numbers for Jul 2019. Also, oil prices recovered from
the nearly 5% drop in the previous session on expectations that
producers could cut supply to support the market. Today (as of Aug 9),
Asian markets traded higher as investors looked forward to the release
of Chinese inflation data. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading up
0.58% and 0.46%, respectively (as at 8.a.m.IST).
European markets gained as a steep decline in bond yields steadied
and eased concerns over slowing economic growth. Investors kept an
eye on the yuan and China’s central bank set the official reference rate
for the Chinese currency at a level not as bad as expected.
U.S. markets gained as global bond yields recovered from their steep
fall and investors took stock of better than expected Chinese trade data.
