Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

The GIFT Nifty has lost 185 points, or 0.85 percent, indicating a bad start for India’s broader market. The Nifty futures were trading near the 21,633 mark.

US Markets

Tuesday’s major market indices on Wall Street fell as US Treasury yields increased and market expectations of impending interest rate cuts were delayed by a higher-than-expected consumer inflation figure.

A Labour Department data revealed that US consumer prices grew over estimates in January due to a spike in the cost of housing, causing the Dow Jones Industrial Average to experience its largest one-day percentage decline in almost 11 months.

The Nasdaq Composite dropped 282.64 points, or 1.79 percent, to 15,659.91, while the S&P 500 shed 68.14 points, or 1.37 percent, to close at 4,953.70 points. To reach 38,275.33, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 522.05 points, or 1.36 percent.

Asian Markets

Early on Wednesday, Asian markets saw lower trading, with the Nikkei down 0.7 percent and the Kospi down 1.4 percent.

Dollar

Tuesday saw the dollar rise, touching 150 vs the yen for the first time since November. This was due to data indicating that U.S. inflation increased more than anticipated in January, which supported the belief that the Federal Reserve would maintain interest rates in March.

The dollar gained sharply to 150.34 yen, its highest level since November. It was last trading at 150.305 yen, up 0.6%. Following the release of the data, the dollar index began to rise and was last up 0.4 percent at 104.59.

Crude Oil

Tuesday saw a higher closing price for oil as geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and eastern Europe persisted, but gains were limited as investors lowered their expectations for interest rate cuts by the US Federal Reserve.

At 2:30 pm EST (19:32 GMT), Brent futures ended the day 77 cents higher, or 0.94 percent, at $82.77 per barrel. At $77.87 per barrel, US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude finished 1.24 percent, or 95 cents higher, than it started.

News Updates

Zee Ent reports Q3 profit of Rs 58.5 crore, up 1.4x, and revenue growth of 14.8%.

The earnings for television broadcaster Zed Entertainment increased by 140% to Rs 58.5 crore in the December quarter of FY24 from Rs 24.32 crore in the same time the previous year.

Compared to Rs 194 crore in Q3 FY23, the company’s income increased by 15% to Rs 223 crore.

Zee, which is struggling due to the cancelled merger agreement with Sony, reported a profit of Rs 122.96 crore in Q2 FY24, a 52 percent decrease in income on a sequential basis.

Zee reported Rs 1027.4 crore in advertising income for the same period last year, a 3.3% decrease from Rs 1063.4 crore. Revenue from subscriptions increased by 3% annually to Rs 921.3 crore from Rs 894.4 crore.

January saw a little decline in US consumer inflation, although less than anticipated.

According to Bureau of Labour Statistics statistics issued on Tuesday, the first gauge of inflation for 2024—the Consumer Price Index—showed that prices increased by 3.1 percent for the 12-month period that ended in January. This represents a reversal from the 3.4 percent rate observed in December 2023 and a sharp decline from the 6.4 percent growth observed in January 2023.

According to the BLS, the CPI increased by 0.3 percent on a monthly basis in January. The majority of this increase was attributed to persistently high housing expenses. While lowering petrol costs provided some relief to consumers, food prices climbed at the fastest monthly rate in a year, thankfully no longer exceeding total inflation.

Moody’s updates its rating outlook for four Adani Group companies.

On February 13, Moody’s Investor Group announced that it had maintained the stable outlook for the remaining four Adani Group firms while changing the outlook from negative to stable for the debt papers of four of the companies. It validated the eight companies’ ratings.

Adani Green Energy Limited (AGEL), Adani Green Energy Restricted Group (AGEL RG-1), Adani Transmission Step-One Limited (ATSOL), and Adani Electricity Mumbai Limited (AEML) are the entities for which the rating outlook has been altered.

Adani Green Energy Restricted Group (AGEL RG-2), Adani Energy Solutions Limited Restricted Group 1 (AESL RG1), Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ), and Adani International Container Terminal Private Ltd (AICTPL) are the ones whose rating outlook has not changed.
