    Brokerage view on Financials

    Most large private and PSU banks have announced a series of sharp cuts in Term/Savings rates to offset NIM pressures. In a recent move, AXSB and ICICIBC reduced their SA rate by 25bp to 3.0%, and SBIN lowered its SA rate by 5bp to 2.7%. While a sharp reduction in the repo rate has resulted in moderation in yield under the externally benchmark-based price regime loans, a reduction in deposit rates would offset margin pressure to some extent. Amid this backdrop, we assessed the margin trajectory for the major banks; we believe private banks are relatively well-positioned to preserve their margins even as we expect slight compression in NIMs at the sector level. We maintain our preference for ICICIBC, HDFCB, and SBIN: Motilal Oswal

    Govt approves big agricultural reforms that’ll help farmers trade freely

    The amendment to the Essential Commodities Act marks the beginning of a new chapter in India's agriculture history. The removal of inter-state agri-trade barriers will help farmers, especially, small farm owners and FPN's to sell their produce at an all India level with a better and transparent price discovery mechanism. The measure will improve the ease of doing business for the agri-sector and foster greater transparency, efficiency and trust across the value chain. Additionally, this will serve our goals of doubling farmers' income by 2022 as well as the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan: Amith Agarwal, Co-Founder & CEO, AgriBazaar

    Brokerage view on IndiGo

    We downgrade IndiGo to ADD (from BUY earlier).

While we believe that IndiGo is better placed to withstand the downturn due to its dominant market share/scale, a healthier balance sheet (as compared to competition) and cost-cutting initiatives (phasing out of older CEO planes), the overall demand outlook is challenging: HDFC Securities
