  • Gangwal family launches mega $450mn block deal in Interglobe Aviation, biggest yet

    The Gangwal family, led by Rakesh Gangwal, is planning to raise $450 million or around Rs 3,735 crore through a block trade at Interglobe Aviation. The family has previously sold a 2.8% stake worth Rs 2,000 crore and a 4.9% stake for Rs 2,900 crore. Rakesh Gangwal stepped down from the board of Interglobe Aviation in February 2022, holding a 29.72 percent stake. The family plans to dilute its stake in a phased manner after he quit the board. The offer floor price is Rs 2,400 per share, representing a 5.8% discount from the last close price of Rs 2,549 per share.

  • Foxconn sees opportunity to invest several billions of dollars in India

    Foxconn, a Taiwanese electronics manufacturing company, has the potential to invest several billions of dollars in India if it fully implements its plan. The company’s Indian arm has an annual turnover of close to $10 billion, and the potential market size in India is significant. Foxconn operates nine campuses in India, with a total size equivalent to over 500 football fields. With over 30 factories and a turnover of roughly $10 billion annually, the company has over 20 dormitories housing employees. The company’s capex in India is expected to grow this year, according to CEO Young Liu.

  • SBFC Finance IPO grey market premium falls. Will it still debut on a strong note?

    SBFC Finance is expected to debut with a 35-40% premium over its issue price of Rs 57 per share when listed today. Experts believe the shift is due to the correction in equity markets, which has been around 3% since July 20 when the Nifty reached a record high of 19,992. The runaway rally since the end of March is unlikely in the coming weeks. SBFC traded consistently with a 70% premium in the grey market, but the premium dropped to 40-45% since the start of the current week.

  • India’s imports from Russia doubled to $20.45 billion in April-July period

    India’s imports from Russia doubled to $20.45 billion in April-July 2022, making it India’s second-largest import source during the first four months of the fiscal. This growth is due to increased inbound crude oil and fertilizer shipments from Russia. India, the world’s third-largest crude importer, has been buying Russian oil at a discount due to Western sanctions against Moscow for the Ukraine invasion. China’s imports also decreased, with China’s imports dropping to $32.7 billion during the same period.

  • JPMorgan among US banks facing risk of rating cut as Fitch mulls downgrade

    Fitch Ratings is considering an industry-wide downgrade for the US banking industry, with JPMorgan Chase among the lenders at risk of a reduction in their assessment scores. The agency had previously slashed the industry’s rating to AA- in June, but another downgrade could reduce it to A+. This would force Fitch to reevaluate its assessment of each US lender, as moving to A+ would likely result in negative rating actions.

  • The GIFT Nifty experienced a 101 point loss after closing 6 points higher at 19,434 points on August 14, while GIFT Nifty futures were at 19,369 points.

    Tax preparer H&R Block and Mediterranean food chain Cava advanced more than 6% and 9%, respectively, after stronger-than-expected quarterly reports.

    The Dow snapped a three-day winning streak, while the S&P 500 ended the session below its 50-day moving average, potentially signaling a downturn ahead.

    Financial stocks like JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, and Bank of America slid after Fitch warned it may be forced to downgrade the credit ratings of dozens of banks.

Brent crude futures fell by 1.5 percent to $84.90, while US West Texas Intermediate crude fell by 1.8% to $81.07. Supply cuts by Saudi Arabia and Russia have boosted price rally in the past seven weeks. However, China’s industrial output and retail sales data showed a further slowdown last month, intensifying pressure on faltering growth and prompting authorities to cut key policy rates to boost economic activity.
