Indian equity markets saw a volatile session as indices increased
considerably in the first half but still ended in the red. They had initially
gained on positive global cues after U.S. and China progressed in their
trade talks. The downturn came after a major domestic automaker
registered double-digit decline in net profit for the third quarter. Another
media company lost significantly after news of its promoters reducing
stake emerged.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.47% and
0.64%, respectively, to close at 36,025.54 and 10,780.55, respectively.
S&P BSE Mid-Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap declined 1.20% and 1.58%,
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Telecom was the major gainer, up
1.74%, followed by S&P BSE Information Technology, up 0.2%, and S&P
BSE Oil & Gas, up 0.18%. S&P BSE Energy and S&P BSE Consumer
Durables gained 0.07% each. S&P BSE Realty was the major loser, down
4.09%, followed by S&P BSE Auto and S&P BSE Consumer Discretionary
Goods & Services, down 3.14% each.
An international rating agency has forecasted India's 2018-19 fiscal
deficit to slip to 3.4% of GDP from budgeted 3.3%. It has cautioned that a
farm package could further lead to more deviation from fiscal
consolidation roadmap. The government is aiming to bring it down to 3%
by 2020. The agency said the government's recent policy announcements
to support the incomes of small enterprises and help farmers facing
stress could make it more difficult for the government to achieve its fiscal
consolidation objectives.
The government could push back the deadline of Feb 1, 2019, for
foreign direct investment policy for ecommerce, according to media
news. Leading e-commerce companies have sought a deferment and the
report says the government is considering an extension of at least two
months. Executives of these companies have met senior government
officials and asked for an extension and review of two key clauses. The
first stops marketplaces and their group companies from having equity
participation in any of their vendors and the second prohibits
marketplaces and group companies from having control over inventory
sold on the platforms.
The interim finance minister will meet heads of public sector banks in
the coming week to discuss issues including review of financial
performance of banks for the nine months ended Dec 2018, credit offtake
and bad loan position of lenders, said media reports. The meeting will
also look into the matter of credit flow to MSMEs, agriculture and retail
Tata Motors has said it has no plans to invest and upgrade Nano to
meet BS-VI standards, according to media reports. This hints that the
production and sales of the vehicle could stop from Apr 2020.
Edelweiss Financial Services’ consolidated net profit decreased 4% to
Rs. 226 crore for third quarter ended Dec 2018 compared with Rs. 235
crore in the year-ago period. The fall reflects an increased cost of holding
liquid assets.
