All its successful recognition as a unique misstep of policy in trunk Asia investing, still leaves India a unique place in the sun, inviting specific negative correlation from trades and investors in asset markets, marking its independence streak. However, this is just a improbable hypothesis and an unlikely share for the Morning Report (in this form ) except that Dow’s 100 point rush closing yesterday is overshadowed currently by India’s own woeful exits with the Nifty streaking a negative 80 points making the Rupee start this positive Asia morning at the bottom of its current range. Likely this is the stage NDF price discovery also tail lights trends to be in extreme discovery actions and the Rupee easily could have been at 61 levels here with trade purchases and sales in the same range as earlier years Gold would be thus in a greater rush to complete a mini rally in the reduced taper euphoria.
I am apparently getting ducked on Kejriwal and Pepper spray much like I expect Independent Women careerists to, in the office today. But markets could have easily ignored it and celebrated the successful Spectrum auctions and the India recovery data linked with global news of India’s importance in winning 2014 portfolios. India CPI ended under 9% as the urban CPI receded well into the background while IIP was almost positive with its 189 index score a big jump on the previous month apart from the strong consistent jump in utilities.
A secular Telecom industry uptrend excluding unlisted Vodafone (in India) , is likely after the media rounds prepare a consistent analysis of all players, both Idea and Jio(Rel) having bid INR 100-110 Bln, Jio adding monopoly of 1800 waves in its repertoire against Bharti which with Voda, focussed on winning back existing markets and prepare grounds for improved pricing. Idea having won price conversion over, is unlikely to create another loss making value bid in the retail markets.
In more humane form, India again loses its advantage as it starts off the recovery with an expensive rate hike, a shallow debt market and a doubloon of proprietary traders mesmerized with no good corporates and an officious monitoring and handshake philosophy engrained in Asian culture its common denominator with other closed end markets allowing a 5X US Dollar impact and shallow development hubs. India’s WPI announcements are likely to be near 5.5% .
SBI reports midday with another INR 6 Bln in provisions for pension, INR 25 Bln increase in provisions and INR 85 Bln from an ever expanding restructured asset pipeline in this quarter again but the stock will react further post earnings tipping off a expectations rally at its nadir as it comes out improving the NIM expectations in a better rate environment for lenders from 3.19% in the previous quarter.
ONGC proved great results yesterday along expected lines, profits to 71 Bln , sales at 208 Bln just 1% off last year’s data in the 30% increase in Net profit(28%). Realisations will improve substantially in the current year. Q3 realizations having dropped 4% at below $46 before depreciation earnings. Subsidy expense was more than INR 100 Bln up 10% making the 30% jump more creditable. The company may however get squeezed this quarter as the government defers subsidies with the fisc coming into an expected range.
SEBI added lines of caution on Executive compensation, independent Directors, Women Directors, public succession plans and a mandatory whistle blower policy into the Corporate Governance Code. Along expected lines, The listing agreements at the Stock exchanges will be updated immediately.
Employee stock options have been withdrawn for independent directors and nominee directors are not permitted the dual role of independent directors (DNA India, ETNow).
IT’s attempt to woo the markets with forecasts are likely to fall on deaf years as markets already topped the range on a half rush for new Rupee levels now more likely to be equated back with outsourcing jobs as Pharma breaks out in a good couple of years.
Apparently the stock of debt in Telecom, that can be shared publicly is more than INR 2,000 Bln.
In unlisted business, Kiwis have been bundled out for 192 and India will make sure it has one overseas win in its belt this time after a thorough bashing in all forms of the gamme. RCBs fortunes will be interesting to follow in the IPL with 4 marquee players and none of the local stars like Manish Pandey and Karun Nair.(TOI Blr) Lankans were ignored for an English Summer. Faf du Plessis went back to Chennai as the Gurunath investigation proceeds. Ben Hilfenhaus, will be the likely winner in relatively new entrants this year with TV Networks and Captains working towards the same objectives, Beuran Hendricks winning the Owners’ curse taking in another quality seamer. Dravid shaking down Nathan Coulter’s bid agst Delhi. The list on cricket next atill includes only CSK rosters, duh!
KKR had some money left over too after picking Manish and Debabrata (Ist Round Mitchell Johnson) while Kings XI and The Royals probably walked off , purses safe from prying eyes. This time, even as Shikhar Dhawan is down under, Sehwag bats for Punjab who have Shaun Marsh. KKR got most of the RCB slough offs after the Fished Fisher dug himself out
Royals kept Watson, Binny and Rahane, while Mumbai bid in Corey Andersen, Hussey and the Zed.
