  • Shares decline for 2nd day; banks hit by AGR ruling

    Key benchmark indices ended lower on Friday, dragged by weakness in banks stocks. The barometer S&P BSE Sensex, declined 202.05 points or 0.49% at 41,257.74. The Nifty 50 index lost 61.20 points or 0.50% at 12,113.45.

    Trading was volatile after the Supreme Court (SC) on Friday initiated contempt proceedings against telecom companies for non-payment of Adjusted Gross Revenue (AGR) dues and directed that all directors of the companies be present at the next hearing. The matter will be heard next on March 17.

    Global shares were mixed as investors monitored China's coronavirus epidemic and updates on how badly it could dent growth in the world's second-largest economy.

    In the broader market, the BSE Mid-Cap index fell 0.79% and the BSE Small-Cap index fell 0.40%.

    There were more sellers than buyers. On the BSE, 912 shares rose and 1628 shares fell. A total of 169 shares were unchanged.

    Economy:

    India's annual rate of inflation, based on monthly Wholesale Price Index (WPI), stood at 3.1% in January 2020 (over January 2019) compared with 2.59% in December 2019 and 2.76% in January 2019. Build up inflation rate in the financial year so far is 2.50% compared to a buildup rate of 2.49% in the corresponding period of the previous year.

    Numbers to Watch:

    The yield on 10-year benchmark federal paper tumbled to 6.37% at 16:50 IST compared with 6.423% at close in the previous trading session.

    In the foreign exchange market, the rupee edged lower against the dollar. The partially convertible rupee was hovering at 71.35, compared with its close of 71.26 during the previous trading session.

    In the commodities market, Brent crude for April 2020 settlement rose 76 cents to $57.10 a barrel. The contract rose 55 cents or 0.99% to settle at $56.34 a barrel in the previous trading session.

    Foreign Markets:

    European markets were trading mostly higher while most Asian stocks ended mixed on Friday as investors turned cautious following a surge in cases of a new virus in China. IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice has reportedly said that the organization remained confident in the resilience of China's economy, adding that the country "has the resources and the resolve to meet this challenge."

    China is set to halve tariff rates on certain U.S. products worth about $75 billion with effect later on Friday, as previously announced by Beijing in early February. Retaliatory tariffs on some U.S. goods will be cut from 10% to 5%, and from 5% to 2.5% on others, according to a statement from China's Ministry of Finance earlier this month. The adjustments will take effect from 14 February.

    US stock market declined on Thursday after a change in the methodology used by China resulted in a sharp rise in COVID-19 cases and deaths. The World Health Organization said Thursday that the total deaths from the outbreak stood at 1,369, while the total number of confirmed cases rose to 60,329. Traders are still trying to gauge the outbreak's effect on the economy.

    Meanwhile, the US Fed said it would shrink repo operations starting with Friday's overnight offering. The Fed has been conducting repo offerings and Treasury-bill purchases in a bid to keep control of short-term interest rates and bolster bank reserves. The efforts had calmed markets since a September spike. Treasuries trimmed their gains for the day.

    On the data front, US first-time claims for unemployment benefits inched up by less than expected in the week ended February 8th, according to a report released by the Labor Department on Thursday.

    US consumer price index inched up by 0.1% in January after rising by 0.2% in December, with higher prices for food and shelter offsetting a steep drop in gasoline prices, the Labor Department reported on Thursday. The uptick in consumer prices was primarily due to an increase in shelter costs, which climbed by 0.4% in January.

    Buzzing Indian Segments:

    Telecom shares were in action after SC directed telecom providers to pay their AGR dues to Department of Telecommunications (DoT) by the next court hearing on 17 March 2020.

    Sector bellwether Bharti Airtel jumped 4.69% to Rs 565.10. The stock reversed trend after sliding as much as 0.98% in morning trade.

    Vodafone Idea slumped 23.21% to Rs 3.44. Tata Teleservices (Maharashtra) fell 9.89% to Rs 3.28.

    A bench comprising Justices Arun Mishra, Abdul Nazeer and M R Shah had assembled today to hear a batch of fresh petitions filed by telecom companies seeking more time for payment of AGR dues.

    The court made scathing observations on the conduct of the telecom companies as well as the DoT for ignoring its 24 October verdict that had directed the firm to pay AGR dues to DoT by 23 January 2020. According to media reports, Vodafone Idea and Airtel owe Rs 1.47 lakh crore to DoT.
