Indian equity markets fell as weak macroeconomic data and banking
sector woes kept investors under pressure. The country’s core sectors
contracted in Aug 2019 and current account deficit widened in the first
quarter. With new bank frauds getting unearthed, investors are getting
increasingly jittery about the banking sector.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 0.94% and 1%
to close at 38,305.41 and 11,359.90, respectively. S&P BSE MidCap and
S&P BSE SmallCap lost 1.54% and 1.61%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 655 scrips advancing
and 1,834 scrips declining. A total of 140 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Oil & Gas was the only gainer, up
0.06%. S&P BSE Telecom was the major loser, down 4.53%, followed by
S&P BSE Realty, down 3.88%, and S&P BSE Teck, down 2.2%.
Nikkei India Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) for Sep
2019 came in unchanged from the 51.4 posted in Aug 2019 as demand
remained subdued domestically and externally. The slack in demand has
led manufacturers to limit production, lower inventories and reduce input
buying. Sep and Aug have thus marked the lowest level since May 2018.
A major global rating agency has significantly reduced India’s growth
projection for 2019‐20 to 6.3% from 7.1% estimated earlier. The agency
said it expected a “decent, albeit unspectacular" recovery in 2020‐21 to
7%. It raised alarm over the decline in private consumption growth to
about 3% in the Mar‐Jun quarter.
The government could rationalise personal income tax rates, according
to media reports. One of the options before the government, said the
report, is to reduce the 20% income tax slab for those having taxable
income between Rs. 5 lakh and Rs. 10 lakh to 10%. Another possibility is
to reduce the tax rate of the highest slab (above Rs. 10 lakh) from 30% to
Media reports showed India has drawn up a plan to monetise assets
across sectors to raise about Rs. 90,000 crore in 2019‐20. This might help
the government make up for the revenue loss on account of measures to
boost the economy.
Media reports showed Bajaj Finance Ltd has surpassed state‐run State
Bank of India (SBI) in terms of market capitalisation for the first time. This
happened as shares of Bajaj Finance have increased more than 50% so far
in 2019.
According to media reports, Bharti Airtel is looking at the option of
totally selling its stake in its tower infrastructure business to private
equity funds. The company is mulling this to sharpen its focus on its core
business of wireless services.
Commercial vehicles major Ashok Leyland’s Sep 2019 sales declined
55% compared with sales in the corresponding month in 2018. The
company sold a total of 8,780 units in Sep, down from 19,374 units sold in
Sep 2018.
Asian equity markets fell as weak manufacturing data from the U.S. and
the eurozone led to global growth concerns. Sentiment was hit on news
that North Korea has fired a submarine‐launched ballistic missile. Today
(as of Oct 3), Asian markets opened lower on trade war concerns as the
U.S. is set to impose tariffs on European Union goods on Oct 18, 2019.
Both Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading up 0.86% and 0.14%,
respectively (as at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets spiralled down on concerns over slowdown in
economic growth as U.S. manufacturing data slipped to its worse in more
than 10 years. German economic research institutes cutting GDP growth
forecasts for Europe’s largest economy added to the woes.
U.S. markets declined as the country’s corporate sector started the
fourth quarter earnings season tepidly, adding to growth slowdown
concerns. Also, ISM data showed U.S. manufacturing activity in Sep 2019
fell to its lowest level in more than 10 years.
