Indian equity markets fell yet again as trade tensions ruled the
sentiment. Though things settled a bit after China confirmed its vice‐
premier would attend the next round of talks in Washington in the week.
Fears were that China could cancel this round after U.S. President’s harsh
comments. The President had said U.S. will increase tariffs on Chinese
imports worth $200 billion to 25% this week and put tariffs on another
$325 billion imports soon.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.84% and
0.87%, respectively, to close at 38,276.63 and 11,497.90, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid‐Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap lost 0.98% and 0.85%, respectively.
On the BSE sectoral front, three sectors gained. S&P BSE Information
Technology and S&P BSE Capital Goods were the major gainers, up 0.19%
each, followed by S&P BSE Consumer Durables, up 0.04%. S&P BSE
Telecom was the major loser, down 2.44%, followed by S&P BSE Energy
and S&P BSE Oil & Gas, down 2.23% and 1.36%, respectively. S&P BSE
Realty and S&P BSE Metal lost 1.32% and 1.25%, respectively.
According to a report by a major global rating agency, Goods and
Services Tax (GST) regime in India may not reduce the deficits of state
governments significantly. This is because there is large and growing
expenditure mandates for the social sector as well as capital spending. The
report says institutional framework for Indian states is evolving, but there
is structural deficits due to persistent revenue expenditure mismatch. It
noted that the passage of the GST bill in 2017 is a major overhaul of tax
structure and will help to widen the tax base and improve revenues of
state governments.
Government has said India and the U.S. have agreed to engage regularly
at various levels to resolve outstanding trade issues by exploring mutually
beneficial suitable solutions. U.S. commerce secretary is visiting Indiato
attend the 11th Trade Winds Business Forum and Mission hosted by the
U.S. Department of Commerce.
The government is preparing a clarification on passing bankruptcy
resolutions that are stalled because many homebuyers did not vote. This
follows a reference from the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) to the
ministry of corporate affairs in a case where the panel of creditors
dominated by homebuyers could not clear a rescue plan from a
consortium as many homebuyers stayed away.
According to media reports, Vedanta Ltd posted a better than expected
fourth‐quarter profit. It came on the back of an increase in international
demand for zinc. Rising global prices of metals such as zinc and copper
have helped Vedanta fight challenges from mine shutdowns in India.
Revenue from its international zinc segment surged 22% to Rs. 1,002 crore
($144.34 million) from Rs. 822 crore in the year‐ago period.
According to media reports, engineering and farm equipment maker
Escorts’ net profit rose 7.8% to Rs. 121.35 crore for the Mar quarter
helped by robust tractor sales. The company had reported a net profit of
Rs. 112.54 crore for the same period of previous fiscal. Revenue from
operations rose to Rs. 1,631.66 crore for the period under review
compared with Rs. 1,436.10 crore in the fourth quarter of 2017‐18.
According to media reports, drug firm Sanofi India reported a 12.60%
rise in its net profit to Rs. 92.9 crore for the first quarter ended Mar 2019.
The company had posted a net profit of Rs. 82.5 crore for the
corresponding period of the previous fiscal.
Asian equity markets were mixed as renewed tensions on the U.S.‐China
trade front kept investors on the edge. The markets that suffered deep
losses in the previous session made up some of the downside. Investors
took hope from China Commerce Ministry’s statement that Vice Premier
would visit the U.S. on May 9 and 10, 2019, for talks at the invitation of
senior U.S. officials. This negated media reports saying China could cancel
the scheduled meeting after U.S. President’s comments. Today (as of May
08), Asian markets opened on a lower note following decline on the Wall
Street Overnight. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading lower 1.61%
and 1.03%, respectively (as at 8 a.m. IST).
As per the last close, European markets fell sharply following increasing
concerns over U.S.‐China trade tensions and on weak economic data in
Germany and France.
As per the last close, U.S markets declined sharply for the second day on
rising concerns over U.S.‐China trade tensions. U.S. Trade Representative
confirmed the U.S. plans to raise tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese
goods to 25% on Friday.
