Indian equity markets added to the handsome gains made on Sep 20,
2019. Government’s announcement of a mega stimulus of Rs. 1.25 lakh
crore has been supporting sentiment. The government, among other
things, cut corporate tax rate, which will boost earnings of companies,
especially banks and non-banking financial companies. The government’s
move has made prominent brokerages to raise their earnings estimates
for Indian businesses.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 gained 2.83% and
2.89% to close at 39,090.03 and 11,600.20, respectively. S&P BSE MidCap
and S&P BSE SmallCap gained 3.08% and 2.73%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was strong with 1,627 scrips
advancing and 981 scrips declining. A total of 186 scrips remained
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Capital Goods was the major gainer,
up 6.55%, followed by S&P BSE Bankex, up 5.68%, and S&P BSE
Industrials, up 5.14%. S&P BSE IT was the major loser, down 3.29%,
followed by S&P BSE Teck, down 3.12%, and S&P BSE Telecom, down
Media reports showed the government is expecting a shortfall of almost
Rs. 40,000 crore in the goods and services tax collections over the
budgeted amount for 2019-20. This could put pressure on the
compensation that states are eligible for in case the tax growth falls
below 14% during the year. The GST Council met in Goa on Sep 20, 2019.
Most states were optimistic that the government will find a way to meet
the compensation requirements.
The finance minister has ruled out any reduction in expenditure in the
backdrop of the corporate tax rate cut. She did this to allay
apprehensions over fiscal prudence because of corporate tax rate cuts.
She said the government would instead push spending to fight the
economic slowdown.
The finance minister said the corporate tax cut has made India a highly
competitive investment destination. She said the rates are now lower
than that in China and most Southeast Asian countries. It has made India
an attractive place for foreign investors to set up units in the country.
Union road transport minister said there is no need to ban petrol and
diesel vehicles as electric mobility has picked up momentum on its own
and all buses would be electric in two years. He did this to instil
confidence among auto industry players. Earlier, the government had
proposed that after 2030, only electric vehicles (EVs) should be sold in
India. Later, Union ministers allayed the fear of automobile manufactures
by underplaying the proposal.
Union home minister said the next census, which is scheduled for Mar
2021, would be carried out through a mobile app. With this the minister
set the stage for the preparation of a National Population Register (NPR)
and the 2021 Census. Shah also said the government is likely set to spend
Rs. 12,000 crore on the 2021 Census as well as the preparation of the
Asian equity markets were mixed as investors took stock of news that
U.S. Federal Reserve officials remain divided on the need for further
easing. U.S.-China trade developments also kept investors anxious as the
U.S. President said he doesn't need a trade deal with China before the
2020 election. Today (as of Sep 24), Asian markets opened higher though
investors remain concerned about the health of the global economy. Both
Nikkei and Hang Seng were trading up 0.25% and 0.10%, respectively (as
at 8.a.m. IST).
European markets declined as weaker than expected economic data
from the region made investors jittery. The shutdown of one of the
world’s most popular tour operators added to investor woes.
U.S. markets were flat as European economic data led to concerns over
the health of the global economy. Germany’s manufacturing activity in
Sep 2019 fell to its lowest level since the financial crisis and the outgoing
European Central Bank president said it is unlikely that the euro area
economy will witness a rebound in the near future.
