Global Markets updates

GIFT Nifty

Trends in the GIFT Nifty foreshadow a bad start for India’s broader market, which has lost 31 points or 0.14 percent. The Nifty futures were trading near the 21,935.00 mark.

US Markets

US stocks ended higher on Friday, with the S&P 500 reaching an all-time closing high. Strong earnings and a strong January employment report boosted confidence in the economy, reducing the likelihood of the Federal Reserve cutting interest rates. The rally capped a week filled with high-profile earnings, a Fed rate decision, and renewed jitters over regional banking weakness. Meta Platforms and Amazon.com’s quarterly results boosted the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite Index over 1%, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average’s gain was more muted. All three major US stock indexes also saw their fourth consecutive weekly gains.

Asian Markets

This week’s holiday-shortened start left Asian markets unsettled as investors awaited policy announcements from major central banks, such as the Reserve Bank of India on Thursday and the Reserve Bank of Australia on Tuesday.

Private surveys on activity in the service industry from Hong Kong and China will be made public on Monday. Singapore is scheduled to unveil its December retail sales data, and Thailand is scheduled to unveil its January inflation figures.

News Updates

India increases the tonne-wise windfall tax on crude to Rs 3,200.

The Indian government said late Friday that it will raise the windfall tax on petroleum oil to Rs 3,200 per tonne from 1,700 rupees on Saturday. The windfall tax on diesel and aviation turbine fuel will remain at zero.

The windfall tax on petroleum crude was lowered by the government on January 16 from Rs 2,300 per tonne.

India imposed a windfall tax on producers of crude oil in July 2022 and raised export taxes on petrol, gasoline and aviation fuel since private refiners favoured selling petroleum abroad rather than domestically in order to benefit from large refining margins. Every two weeks, the tax is adjusted.

First rate drop in Q3 2024, RBI expected to keep rates till mid-year, according to a Reuters poll.

According to analysts surveyed by Reuters, the Reserve Bank of India would maintain its benchmark interest rate at 6.50 percent on February 8. These economists anticipated that the central bank will hold onto rates for at least July, which is longer than some developed market central banks.

The RBI hasn’t raised its repo rate since February 2023 despite raising it by a total of 250 basis points, which is far less than most of its major competitors. This is because inflation has mostly stayed within the bank’s goal range of 2 to 6 percent.

RBI Chief Shaktikanta Das expressed optimism a few weeks ago that the present monetary policy could return inflation to its medium-term target of 4 percent.

However, a rate drop is unlikely anytime soon given that inflation is hovering around the upper end of the target range and India continues to be the main country developing at the quickest rate.

Q3 net profit for SBI falls 35% to Rs 9,163 crore, but asset quality remains strong.

On February 3, the State Bank of India (SBI) revealed its October–December quarter net profit for the fiscal year 2023–24. This represents a 35% decrease from the Rs 14,205 crore recorded in the same time the previous year. An average of five brokerage expectations of Rs 13,525 crore were missed by the net profit.

The lender stated that they had a Rs 7,100 crore one-time extraordinary item in a press release.h

The biggest bank in the nation’s net interest income (NII) was Rs 39,815 crore, less than the estimated Rs 40,304 crore. The lender’s net interest margin was 3.22 percent.

The gross non-performing asset (NPA) percentage of the bank decreased to 2.42 percent from 3.14 percent in the same quarter previous year. However, net non-performing assets (NPA) for the quarter were 0.64 percent as opposed to 0.77 percent in the previous year.

Q3 consolidated net profit at Tata Motors soars two times to Rs 7,025 crore.

On February 2, Tata Motors announced a two-fold increase in its consolidated net profit for the October-December quarter compared to Rs 2,957.71 crore the same period last year. The company attributed this to the strong demand for passenger and commercial vehicles in India, the continued growth of Jaguar Land Rover models, a reduction in the cost of raw materials, price increases, and an improved mix of products.

According to a filing with the exchange, revenue increased by 24.9 percent year over year to Rs 110,577 crore from Rs 88,489 crore during the same period previous year.

Analysts had predicted that the Mumbai-based automaker’s net profit would increase by 54% year over year (YOY) to Rs 4,547 crore in the October–December quarter. However, the actual figures beat their projections. According to the predictions, income is expected to increase by 22% year over year to Rs 1,08,169 crore.

Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) for the Tata Group company increased by 42.5 percent year over year to Rs 15,333 crore, while operating margin increased by 171 basis points to 13.94 percent.

Net profit for IndiGo in Q3 leaps 111%

The parent company of IndiGo, the biggest low-cost airline in India, InterGlobe Aviation Ltd., announced on February 2 that its net profit for the December quarter increased by 111%. This increase was primarily driven by the ongoing demand for air travel as well as a fuel surcharge that was implemented in October.

The airline told exchanges that net profit was Rs 2,998.12 crore as opposed to Rs 1,422.6 crore the previous year.

Revenue reached Rs 19,452.15 crore, up 30%.

According to the announcement, IndiGo’s overall revenue increased to Rs 20,062.2 crore from Rs 15,410.2 crore during the same time last year.
