Indian equity markets ended in the red as proposals like long-term
capital gains tax on equities in the Union Budget FY19 weighed on
investor sentiment. Market sentiment was further dented after the
finance minister announced that the fiscal deficit target for FY18 was
raised to 3.5% of gross domestic product as against 3.2% earlier. The
target for FY19 has been fixed at 3.3%.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 fell 0.16% and
0.10% to close at 35,906.66 and 11,016.90, respectively. S&P BSE Mid-Cap
fell 0.54%. Meanwhile, S&P BSE Small-Cap remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Consumer Durables was the top loser
and was down 1.78%, followed by S&P BSE Energy (-1.55%), S&P BSE
Healthcare (-1.38%), S&P BSE Oil & Gas (-1.28%) and S&P BSE Realty (-
0.89%). Top gainers were S&P BSE Capital Goods, up 1.57%, followed by
S&P BSE Auto and S&P BSE FMCG, which rose 0.67% and 0.64%,
respectively. S&P BSE Industrials and S&P BSE Basic Materials rose 0.57%
and 0.42%, respectively.
The Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) fell to
52.4 in Jan 2018 from 54.7 in Dec 2017. The decline reflects growth in
output, new orders and employment at slower rates. However, new
export orders grew at the sharpest rate since Sep 2016.
In the Union Budget 2018-19, government has increased its fiscal deficit
target from 3.2% of Budgeted Estimate (BE) to 3.5% for the current
financial year. For FY18-19, fiscal deficit is projected at 3.3% of BE, which
is also higher than 3% estimated in the previous budget.
Government’s net borrowings for FY18-19 has been lowered by around
Rs. 73,000 crore to Rs. 4.07 lakh crore from the market compared with the
current fiscal. However, gross borrowing for the next financial year has
been increased to Rs. 6.05 lakh crore. For the current fiscal year, net
borrowing was sharply raised to Rs. 4.79 lakh crore compared with the
Budget estimate of Rs. 3.5 lakh crore.
The budget has proposed to tax Long Term Capital Gains (LTCG) from
listed equities exceeding Rs. 1 lakh at 10%, without allowing any
indexation benefit. The finance minister also proposed to introduce a tax
on distributed income by equity-oriented mutual funds at the rate of 10%,
to provide a level field across growth-oriented funds and dividend
distributing funds.
ICICI Bank announced decline in net profit by 32% YoY to Rs. 1,650 crore
in the quarter ended Dec 2017 from Rs. 2,442 crore a year ago due to
lower income from treasury although provisions for non-performing
assets remained elevated.
Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) posted increase in total sales by 8.5%
YoY to 56,216 units in Jan 2018 from 51,834 units sold in Jan 2017.
Domestic sales and export of the company rose by 8.3% and 9.1%,
Vedanta reported decline in net profit by 4% to Rs. 2,053 crore in the
third quarter of FY18 as compared with Rs. 2,133 crore in the same
quarter of FY17. The company witnessed decline in profit even though a
secular increase in metal prices led to rise in revenue by 19% in the period
under review.
Asian markets traded in mixed after the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) kept
interest rates unaltered in its policy review as per expectations, but
indicated to raise rates at its next meeting in Mar 2018. Meanwhile,
improved manufacturing data from China and Japan helped gains. Today
(As of Feb 2), Asian markets opened lower following mixed close in the
Wall Street and rise in U.S. government debt yields. Both Nikkei and Hang
Seng were trading down 1.34% and 0.52% (as at 8.a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European market ended lower following
disappointing earnings results from few companies and losses in Wall
Street. The continued rise in global bond yields made equities less
appealing to investors. Also, strengthening of Euro and the British pound
against the dollar brought additional pressure to shares of European
As per the last close, U.S markets ended mixed. Better than expected
results of few companies that boosted investor’s sentiments. However,
downbeat U.S. economic data and cautiousness over monthly jobs report
to be released today weighed on investor’s sentiments.
