Indian Equity Market
P/E Dividend Yield
• Indian equity markets dipped as hopes of global economic recovery
dampened amid surging COVID-19 cases in the U.S. and many European
countries. Fresh curbs by Germany and France added to the woes further.

0.8% in Sep 2020 as compared to a contraction of 7.3% in Aug 2020 and a

the same period of the previous year.
• Government data showed that India’s fiscal deficit during the period from
Apr to Sep of 2020 stood at Rs. 9.14 lakh crore. India’s fiscal deficit target
thus exceeded the full year target of Rs. 7.96 lakh crore by almost 15%.
India’s fiscal deficit widened as government’s revenue remained subdued
on account of COVID-19 pandemic. Total receipts for the government
stood at Rs. 5.65 lakh crore or 25.2% of the budget estimate as compared
to 40.2% of the budget estimate in the corresponding period of the
previous year. The government however tried to contain the fiscal deficit to
some extent by bringing down the total expenditure which stood at Rs.
14.8 lakh crore or 48.6% of the budget estimate as compared to 53.4% of
the budget estimate in the corresponding period of the previous year.

Project' is a systematic HAL-initiated business transformation exercise
through technology enhancement and centralised ERP.
• Asian markets continued to retreat as rising coronavirus infections and new
restrictions introduced in European countries added to worries about the
economic outlook. Meanwhile, investors awaited cues from third-quarter
corporate earnings and a meeting of China's Communist Party leaders that
will set the next five-year plan. Today (as on Oct 30), markets are witnessing
a mixed trend as better than expected U.S. GDP data eased concerns over
rising COVID-19 cases in U.S. and several European countries to some
extent. Both Nikkei and Hang Seng are down 0.38% and 0.41% (as at 8:00
AM IST), respectively.
• European markets largely closed in the red after ECB kept key interest rates
and massive stimulus unchanged, citing a highly uncertain outlook amid a
resurgence in the COVID-19 pandemic.
• U.S. markets rebounded following the release of a report from the
Commerce Department showing a stronger than expected rebound by the
U.S. economy in the third quarter of 2020.
