Indian equity markets lost on weak global cues as the U.S. President
faced impeachment and U.S.-China trade tensions kept brewing. The U.S.
House speaker initiated an impeachment inquiry as she said the President
betrayed his oath of office by seeking help from a foreign power to hurt a
Democratic rival. Sentiment was also cautious ahead of the expiry of
near-month derivative contracts on Sep 26, 2019.
Key benchmark indices S&P BSE Sensex and Nifty 50 lost 1.29% and
1.28% to close at 38,593.52 and 11,440.20, respectively. S&P BSE MidCap
and S&P BSE SmallCap lost 1.76% and 1.5%, respectively.
The overall market breadth on BSE was weak with 718 scrips advancing
and 1,803 scrips declining. A total of 124 scrips remained unchanged.
On the BSE sectoral front, S&P BSE Power was the major gainer, up
1.05%, followed by S&P BSE Utilities, up 0.55%, and S&P BSE IT, up 0.42%.
S&P BSE Auto was the major loser, down 3.84%, followed by S&P BSE
Realty, down 3.1%, and S&P BSE Metal, down 2.63%.
The Asian Development Bank (ADB) has sharply lowered India's growth
forecast from 7.2% to 6.5% for 2019-20, according to media news. ADB
indicated that the country will grow faster than China. In its Asian
Development Outlook (ADO) Update for 2019, ADB cut the growth
projection for India, which recorded an over six-year low growth of 5% in
the Apr-Jun quarter 2019.
Union minister for MSME and Road Transport & Highways
brainstormed with top fashion designers and officials to work out a
success story for khadi and make it a trendy-yet-affordable fabric globally.
The Khadi and Village Industries Corporation proposes to establish
centres across the country to facilitate khadi institutions to develop
designs according to market demand.
The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) will conduct a pan-India
review of the e-assessment system for income-tax payers before starting
it in Oct 2019. CBDT, which frames policy for the income-tax department,
had last week set up the national e-assessment centre in Delhi as part of
the Centre's plan to launch faceless and nameless assessment for income-
tax payers.
According to media reports, the board of Kaveri Seed Company has
approved the share buyback of up to 28 lakh shares, or 4.44% of equity
shares, aggregating to Rs. 196 crore. The issue will be priced at Rs. 700
per share, which is a 28% premium to the share price. The buyback size
excludes transaction cost like brokerage, applicable taxes such as
securities transaction tax, GST, buyback tax, stamp duty, among others.
As per media reports, Goldman Sachs-backed SAMHI Hotels Ltd filed
the draft papers for its initial public offering (IPO) which could see the
company raise Rs. 1,800-2,000 crore. According to the draft red herring
prospectus (DRHP) filed by the company, which is a hotel owner and
asset manager across India, it intends to raise Rs. 1,100 crore in fresh
capital through the IPO. In addition, existing shareholders of the company
will sell 19.14 million shares through an offer for sale.
Asian equity markets fell as investors remained cautious of the political
situation in the U.S. and trade developments. U.S. House Speaker
announced a formal impeachment inquiry against the U.S. President for
calling Ukraine's leader to help malign a Democratic rival. On the trade
front, the U.S. President came down harshly on China's trade practices at
the United Nations General Assembly, adding that he would not accept a
"bad deal" in trade talks with the country. Today (as of Sep 26), Asian
markets opened mixed as the U.S. President told media on the sidelines
of the United Nations meet that a deal between the U.S. and China could
come sooner “than you think”.
European markets fell over the political uncertainty in the U.S. as a
formal impeachment inquiry was started against the U.S. President. Also,
the President hardened his tone against China on trade issues in the
United Nations meet.
U.S. markets gained after the U.S. President said a U.S.-China trade
deal could be around the corner.
