    Gold subdued as focus turns to U.S.-China trade talks

    Gold prices inched lower on Thursday following a steep fall in the previous session, as investors waited on any Sino-U.S. trade developments later this week, while bulls rolled back expectations of big U.S. interest rate cuts. Spot gold was down 0.2% at $1,406.21 per ounce as of 0529 GMT. Prices fell more than 1% in the previous session after U.S. Federal Reserve officials dented expectations of aggressive interest rate cuts. U.S. gold futures were 0.4% lower at $1,409.60 an ounce.

    "There appears to be some fatigue around preannouncements on the trade issues ... If we don't see any sort of agreement, then we can see support for gold coming back, but in the meantime that modulation is expected to weigh on gold prices," said Michael McCarthy, chief market strategist, CMC Markets.

    Analyst call on UltraTech Cement

    The acquisition of Century’s cement asset and Binani has led to UltraTech Cement or UTCEM increasing its capacity market share and take its pan-India capacity market share to 20%. The acquisition of Binani’s asset by UTCEM is attractive as it provides scope for further brownfield expansion by 4-5mt. The ramp-up of Binani’s assets and the INR740/t improvement in profitability has been attractive. The company trades at 17.7x/14x EV on FY20/21E EBITDA. We value UTCEM at 14.5x Sept' 21 EV/EBITDA and arrive at a TP of INR5,280 (implied EV/t of USD 215 on FY21 capacity), said Motilal Oswal in a report.

    Should you Buy IndusInd Bank?

    IndusInd Bank (IIB) has got the final approval to merge Bharat Financial Inclusion (BFIL) with itself effective 4th July 2019 and is also likely to get additional capital from the promoters. Post-merger, the promoter stake will drop to 13%, which they would like to retain at 15% by infusing capital through warrants. As per media news/scheme of arrangement, the promoters will infuse Rs 27 bn through 15.7 mn warrants (25% to be paid upfront and 75% over next 18 months) at a price of Rs 1,709 a share (premium of 17% to last closing price). We believe both these developments are positive for the stock and will be value accretive from day one. BFIL business is much more profitable than the bank along with high levels of capitalisation that will help improve both leverage and profitability. Maintain BUY. (a) CAR for the merged entity to inch up by 2%+ postmerger/ capital infusion (current CAR at 14.2%); (b) MFI business is highly profitable with 10% spread and additional capital will aid in margin expansion of 30 bps for the merged entity; (c) merger with BFIL will add granularity to IIB’s loan book and increase the share of retail loans in the bank to 48%; (d) return ratios are set to improve as capital requirements for banks are lower than NBFC-MFIs; also risk weights for microfinance are lower at 75% for banks vs. 100% for MFIs thus providing higher leverage; and (e) IIB likely to earn 1-1.5% fee income on the excess PSL generated, said Axis Capital in a report.
