Indian equity markets fell for the eighth consecutive session after U.S.
went ahead and increased tariff on Chinese imports worth $200 billion.
This came even as the two sides sat for talks in the two-day meeting being
held in the U.S. Investors are hoping that some positive news will come
from the meeting that ends on May 10, 2019. Also, markets had to deal
with a weak set of earnings.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.26% and
0.20%, respectively, to close at 37,462.99 and 11,278.90, respectively. S&P
BSE Mid-Cap and S&P BSE Small Cap gained 0.24% and 0.21%,
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Consumer Durables was the major
gainer, up 1.51%, followed by S&P BSE Telecom and S&P BSE Bankex, up
0.83% and 0.43%, respectively. S&P BSE Finance and S&P BSE Consumer
Discretionary Goods & Services rose 0.4% and 0.24%, respectively. S&P
BSE Metal was the major loser, down 1.54%, followed by S&P BSE
Information Technology and S&P BSE Oil & Gas, down 1.13% and 0.98%,
Government data showed that India’s Index of Industrial Production (IIP)
growth fell 0.1% YoY in Mar 2019 as against a growth of 0.1% in Feb 2019
and 5.3% in Mar 2018. The downside reflects fall in the manufacturing
sector. The manufacturing sector dropped 0.4% in Mar 2019 compared
with a rise of 5.7% a year ago. Cumulatively, during Apr 2018 to Mar 2019
industrial production increased 3.6%, slower than 4.4% growth in the
same period of the previous year.
Bottling companies and distributors of certain FMCG and consumer
durable firms have come under the scanner of the Goods and Services Tax
(GST) authorities because of alleged post-sale discounts offered by
manufacturers, media reports said. The authorities have asked why GST
was not paid on these discounts, treating them as services by distributors.
In some cases, authorities have sought sales details for the past five years
from distributors.
A member of Prime Minister’s Economic Advisory Council (PMEAC) has
said that India may be nearing a structural slowdown. The economy may
soon get caught in the ‘middle income trap’ just like Brazil and South
Africa, he said. India’s growth story that has been mainly driven by
consumption and not exports since 1991 has finally begun to stagnate, he
added. The 100 million consumers fuelling the consumption have now
started to level. Such a phenomenon is called middle-income trap in the
economic parlance.
Fortis Healthcare Ltd could approach the Delhi High court to recover Rs.
403 crore, which was allegedly siphoned off from Fortis by its former
promoters, media reports said. The move follows an order dated Oct 17 by
the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) that directed Fortis to
take necessary action to recover Rs. 403 crore along with due interest
from the former promoters, Malvinder and Shivinder Singh, and various
promoter companies within 90 days. Larsen and Toubro Ltd (L&T) has
bought more shares of Mindtree Ltd to raise its total ownership in the
software services firm to 26%, media reports said. With this, L&T has
crossed the 25% mark that ensures L&T gets a board seat and the power
to propose or block special resolutions.
Asian equity markets ended mostly high as investors took the U.S.
decision to increase tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods in
stride. Investors are hoping the two countries will be able to manage a
truce to save the negotiation process. Today (as of May 13), Asian markets
opened on a lower note on uncertainty over the U.S. and China trade
front. Nikkei fell 0.59% (as at 8.a.m. IST). Hangseng remained closed.
As per the last close, European markets closed higher despite U.S. hiking
duties on Chinese products. Gains in a metal major on reports that the
company is considering partial listing of its elevator business boosted the
indices. Encouraging economic data from Germany and the U.K. added to
the gains.
As per the last close, U.S markets closed on a higher note on reports that
U.S. has stated that the conversations with China will continue and his
relationship with China’s President remains strong. The markets had
initially come under pressure on renewed concerns about the impact of a
U.S. and China trade war after U.S. raised tariffs on Chinese imports.
