Share Market Live Updates: BSE/NSE Sensex, Nifty Share Price Live


    16:47 (IST)30 Jul 2019
    Market wrap up

    The Sensex was down by 289 points or 0.77% at 37397.24, and the Nifty by 103.80 points or 0.93% at 11085.40 because of weakness in Reliance, Banks and few pharmaceutical companies.  About 350 shares have advanced, 1412 shares declined.  Advance decline ratio was lowest after 8th July 2019 and 19th July 2019.   Nifty closed below the level of 200 days SMA, which was at 1140. It shows that market participants are under fear as they have not even respected the long term average of Nifty closing prices.  Bank Nifty was down by 800 points from its peak of 29530 mainly on the back of weakness in PSU banks, Yes bank, IndusInd Bank and RBL Bank.  Tomorrow will be a crucial day for markets as the outcome on interest rates from Federal Reserve would decide the trend of global liquidity.  The market is turning attractive in the medium term as even though frontline stocks are down nearly by 15% to 20%. Pessimism is increasing amongst major players, said Kotak Securities.

    Market analysis by expert

    The Indian equity benchmark indices continued their downtrend despite stable global cues. The Nifty index opened on a firm note, however, the gains soon fizzled out as the index slipped to a low of 11,073 before closing 0.9% lower at 11,085 (down 104 points). Notably, Bank Nifty lost around 500 points and closed lower at 28,790 levels. The broader market indices ‘BSE Midcap and BSE Smallcap’ too ended lower by 1.6% and 2.1%, respectively. Once again IT ended in positive (up 0.7%), while all other sectoral indices witnessed heavy selling pressure with Auto, Metals, Oil & Gas and Banking leading the pack of losers.

    Going forward, we expect that weak domestic sentiments may have a negative bearing on the Indian markets. The corporate earnings have also been mixed so far and leading corporates have provided muted outlook for the coming quarters. On the global front, Fed meet which is scheduled on 30-31 July may have a meaningful impact on the markets as there are high expectations for a rate cut. Moreover, any positive outcome from the negotiations between US-China for trade tariffs could also provide direction to the markets, said Ajit Mishra Vice President, Research, Religare Broking Ltd.

    Expert comment on Sensex, Nifty massive fall

    Nifty marked a gloomy day on the stock markets with a key industrialist going missing and the stock of Coffee Day Enterprises hitting the lower circuit. While the bourses started the day in green, mid-day the tables turned and heavy selling was witnessed in marquee names such as Reliance Industries, SBI which led the fall. While majority of the stocks were experiencing pain, VIP rose 10% intraday even though its net profit fell 45%. The net profit de-grew mainly due to an exceptional item of Rs 48.50 Crs pertaining to the loss of property, plant, equipment, and inventories that were destroyed due to a fire at the company's regional warehouse at Ghaziabad on April 03, 2019. The company has initiated its insurance claim process and considering the company's insurance policy, it expects the loss to be adequately covered. Excluding this exceptional item the profit would have grown by 32% in Q1FY20 compared to the previous year., said Umesh Mehta, Head of Research, Samco Securities.

    More than half of what you pay for petrol is tax, duty and commission; here’s the breakup

    Petrol price in India has more of tax, duty and commission built in it, than the cost of crude and refining. If tax, duty and commission are removed from the retail price of petrol and diesel, petrol can be available at just Rs 33.94 per litre and diesel can be sold at Rs 38.48 per litre in the fuel pumps of India — less than half their prevailing retail prices. However, these are just the dealer price but the retail price has a long list of additions. “Public sector oil marketing companies take appropriate decision on pricing of petrol and diesel in line with international product prices and other market conditions,” Anurag Thakur, MoS, Ministry of Finance, said in a reply to a query in Lok Sabha.

    GST under CAG lens: National auditor lists concerns; says full potential not achieved even after 2 years

    Even as GST roll out completed two years, no system validated input tax credit (ITC) through invoice matching has been put in place, a CAG report on GST said. In addition, non-intrusive e-tax system still remains elusive, said the report tabled in Parliament on Tuesday. The GST was launched on July 1, 2017, and has completed two years since then. The indirect tax was introduced as the biggest tax reform and showcased as ‘One Nation One Tax.’ Adding, the report said that the system has become prone to ITC frauds, owing to the complex nature of the return mechanism and the technical glitches leading to a roll back of invoice-matching.

    Analyst views on Nifty50 index

    Our analysis suggests there would be no changes to the NIFTY 50 index at the upcoming index review in Aug’19. Despite the recent sharp correction in thelowest-ranked NIFTY 50 stocks by free-float market cap (FF MCap) – Yes Bank and IHFL – their average FF MCap over the past six months remain high, therebyraising the criteria for the top contenders (GCPL and Shree Cement) from the NIFTY Next 50 index. In general, we observed significant underperformance (-11% CY-TD) of the NIFTY Next 50 index as compared to NIFTY 50, said ICICI Securities in a report.

    Escorts Q1FY20 profit falls 27.6% to Rs 87.66 crore; should you buy the stock?

    We expect ESC’s tractor volume to fall by 8%/6% YoY in FY20E/FY21E. We reduce our construction equipment volume estimate by 17%/19% for FY20E/FY21E, respectively. We lower our revenue and EBIDTA estimates by 12%/11% and 19%/19% for FY20E/FY21E, respectively. Accordingly, we cut our EPS estimates by 18%/21% for FY20E/FY21E. In view of expected cyclical down-turn and declining return ratio, we would assign down-cycle P/E multiple to Escorts, hence we lower our target P/E valuation multiple from 11.5x to 10.5x 1-Year forward. Moreover, poor visibility on tractor industry’s volume over the next 2-3 quarters strengthens the case for valuation downgrade. Hence, we reiterate our REDUCE recommendation on the stock with a revised Target Price of Rs 435 (from Rs 600 earlier), valuing it at 10.5x FY21E EPS, Reliance Securities said in a report.

Price erosion in the US due to channel consolidation has been gradually stable for its portfolio of generics. The better visibility of launchingNuvaring and Copaxone in CY19E-20E will make its risk-return ratio favourable.

    Should you buy Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services?

    Investec Securities has recommended a 'BUY' on Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services. Check in detail:

    MMFS’s stock dropped 18% last week and it now trades at a decadal low valuation. Q1 earnings were below expectations, but share price movement seems to suggest the Q1 earnings impairment is permanent. In this note, we highlight that impairment is temporary and earnings should catch up by Q4. Growth and asset quality trends are in-line, and MMFS has built capacity in collections which should benefit asset quality as we saw in FY19. MMFS is gaining m/s and not facing any funding challenges. The subsidiary performance was weak but this looks temporary. We cut our earnings estimates and TP to Rs425 primarily due to higher opex. MMFS is still a 15% RoE & growth NBFC. BUY.

    Uday scheme: Discoms’ losses rise 89% in FY19

    State-run electricity distribution companies (discoms) reported a near doubling of their financial losses in FY19, in what reflected a dramatic reversal of the trend of a secular decline in losses in FY17 and FY18 thanks to the UDAY scheme. What caused these entities to digress from the pathway to progress are politically-motivated delays and inadequacies in tariff hikes and state government departments’ failure to pay them in time for the electricity purchased. Another reason for the rise in losses is the Saubhagya scheme for electrification of households. Discoms’ financial losses stood at Rs 28,369 crore at the end of FY19, up 88.6% year-on-year, according to the updated data provided to the power ministry.

    SBI tightens lending terms for auto dealers amid slowdown in sector

    State Bank of India (SBI) has tightened lending terms dramatically for auto dealerships, according to a source and an internal memo seen by Reuters, seeking to reduce its exposure to risk from a sector in the midst of a sharp downturn. The shadow banking crisis that began to unfold in India during mid-2018 has deepened this year. The liquidity crunch in non-bank financing, higher insurance costs and rises in taxation have served to increase the pressure on the car sector, with monthly auto sales falling by 17-20% since April. Monthly passenger vehicle sales in June fell by the biggest margin in 18 years.
