Indian Market Outlook:

The Key benchmark indices fell around 7 percent over the week due to massive sell-off in the global markets on growing fears that the coronavirus outbreak could turn into a pandemic and derail growth. Major selling was seen in auto and metal sectors, with the Nifty Auto and the Nifty Metal indices falling 10 percent and 14 percent, respectively this week. In the week ended on Friday, the Sensex fell 2872.83 points or 6.98 % to settle at 38297.29 .The Nifty 50 index fell 879.10 points or 7.28 % to settle at 11201.75. BSE Mid Cap Index fell 1094.39 points or 6.97% to settle at 14600.02 while the BSE small Cap index fell 7.04 % to settle at 13709.01. This week’s fall in the market can be attributed to FIIs, who have been aggressively removing flows out of the country. On the contrary, the surprising fact was that DIIs were net buyers this week till Thursday. FIIs sell equities worth Rs.11.368.67 crore over the week while DIIs were the net buyers of Rs.15985.82 crore. Indian and global equity markets will likely fall further over the next few weeks as the world gets a better idea of the extent and impact of the novel coronavirus. In the forthcoming week SBI Card IPO and RITES OFS will be closely watched. On the Macro front Nikkei Markit Manufacturing PMI (Feb) will be announced on 2nd March, 2020, US will also announce Unemployment rate on 6th March, 2020.

Economic News:

  • India’s economy grew 4.7% in the December quarter, its slowest pace in nearly seven years, declining further from an upwardly revised 5.1% in the previous quarter, undermining suggestions that the slowdown may have bottomed out. Experts said the rapid spread of Covid-19 is likely to lead to further disruption, delaying a recovery. Despite 3Q generally being one of the strongest quarters due to the festival season and higher rural spending driven by kharif harvest, the growth slowdown is continuing,” said DK Pant, chief economist, India Ratings and Research.
  • Eight core industries grew by 2.2 per cent on annual basis during January, showed government data released on Friday. The rise in production for core sectors came on the back of expansion in coal, steel, cement and refinery products sectors. The combined Index of Eight Core Industries stood at 137.5 in January, 2020, which increased by 2.2 per cent as compared to the index of January, 2019. Its cumulative growth during April, 2019 to January, 2020 was 0.6 per cent.

 Industry News:

  • The crucial meeting of Digital Communications Commission (DCC) on Friday could not arrive at a decision on relief to the distressed telecom sector and more details are required for reconciliation of AGR data, sources said. The DCC meeting lasted two hours and is expected to meet again in coming days, the sources said. The telecom department officials continue to maintain that the meeting did not focus on AGR issues but on project implementation for PPP on Bharat Net project.
  • The suspension of shipments by sea in China in the wake of the outbreak of coronavirus that has led to nearly 3,000 deaths worldwide is likely to adversely impact the domestic automotive component industry. China accounts for 27 per cent of India’s automotive component imports every year. The coronavirus is expected to have an impact on the Indian automotive industry and hence also on the automobile component and forging industries, which had already reduced their production rate due to the market conditions and on account of the impending change over to BS-VI emission norms from BS-IV from the 1st of April 2020.

  Company News:

  • The Reserve Bank of India has approved the appointment of Sumant Kathpalia as managing director and chief executive officer of IndusInd Bank Ltd., with effect from March 24, for a period of three years. The private lender informed the exchanges today that Kathpalia would take over immediately after the incumbent, Romesh Sobti, retires.
  • Vodafone Idea, in a letter to Department of Telecom (DoT) and Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), has sought at least 7-8 times hike in mobile data tariffs and sought call charges at 6 paise per minute to be able to pay its AGR (Adjusted Gross Revenue) dues. Among other demands, the telco has suggested raising mobile internet prices from current Rs 4-5 per gigabyte to Rs 35 per GB and fixing of minimum connection charges at Rs 50 from April. Notably, the call for tariff hike has come despite the telco increasing charges by up to 50 per cent in December. Vodafone Idea believes it can only earn revenue at the same level as 2016-17 if the government fixes floor price for calls and data charges.
  • SBI Cards and Payment Services (SBI Cards), a subsidiary of State Bank of India (SBI), has allotted nearly Rs 2,800 crore worth of shares to anchor investors. These are institutional investors that commit to subscribe to the shares in the initial public offering (IPO) ahead of its opening. Many other investors look at the demand and quality of the anchor book to decide whether to apply in the IPO. A total of 36.7 million shares have been allotted to 75 anchor investors at Rs 755 apiece, the top-end of the IPO price band. Some of the investors that have been allotted include sovereign funds belonging to the Singapore and Kuwait government, Fidelity, Nomura, BNP Paribas, GMO and Blackrock.

Global News:

  • Factory activity in China contracted at the fastest pace on record in February, highlighting the damage from the coronavirus outbreak on the world’s second-largest economy. China’s official Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) fell to a record low of 35.7 in February from 50.0 in January, the National Bureau of Statistics said on Saturday, well below the 50-point mark that separates monthly growth from contraction. Analysts polled by Reuters expected the February PMI to come in at 46.0.
  • S. Coronavirus panic sent world stock markets tumbling again on Friday, with an index of global stocks setting its largest weekly fall since the 2008 global financial crisis, and over $5 trillion wiped from global market value this week. U.S. stocks shaved most of the day’s losses late in the New York session but only the Nasdaq eked out a positive close. The Dow lost nearly 3,600 points this week and the S&P 500 posted a double-digit weekly percentage loss for only the fifth time since 1940.
