Market Close Highlights : US stock futures advanced as traders took comfort from the Federal Reserve’s signal that there’s no plan to raise interest rates and looked ahead to Apple Inc.’s upcoming earnings.

S&P 500 contracts climbed 0.6%, with Apple, Amazon.com Inc. and Nvidia Corp. posting small gains in pre-market trading. The yen was the center of attention in foreign exchange, recording another day of big swings amid speculation that Japanese authorities had stepped in to support the currency.

Markets are celebrating the fact that the Fed struck a more dovish note than some had expected, even after a slew of statistics pointed to sticky inflation pressures. Chair Jerome Powell said it’s unlikely the central bank’s next move would be to raise rates, saying authorities would need to see persuasive evidence that policy isn’t tight enough to bring inflation back toward the 2% target.

“All in all, it’s a bull message for markets," said Benjamin Melman, chief investment officer at Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management. “We’ve got the confirmation that Powell doesn’t want to raise rates."

Further insight into the health of the US economy will come from initial jobless claims and factory orders on Thursday, though the main focus will be April non-farm payrolls data due at the end of the week. A Bloomberg Economics model points to an unchanged unemployment rate of 3.8%. That suggests “hiring likely remains too hot for the Fed," economists Andrej Sokol and Scott Johnson wrote in a note.

Apple’s figures, which are due after the US market closes, will give investors a better sense of how the iPhone maker is weathering a sales slump, due in part to a sluggish China market.

In Europe, stocks had small moves amid mixed company reports.

The Japanese yen slid as much as 1.1% against the dollar, after a late surge Wednesday in New York. The renewed decline suggests investors are skeptical that Japanese authorities will be able to prevent the currency from weakening, given the country’s wide interest-rate differential with the US.

The Hang Seng Index jumped more than 2%, putting it on track to enter a technical bull market. Hong Kong’s currency peg to the greenback is burnishing its haven appeal amid the threat of higher-for-longer US interest rates.

In commodities, oil clawed back losses from Wednesday and gold advanced.

Sensex Today Live : Swarnendu Bhushan, Co. Head of Research , Institutional Equities , Prabhudas Lilladher, recommends to 'REDUCE' Indian Oil Corp., says weak GRMs dragged earnings in Q4FY24

Sensex Today Live : Rating: REDUCE | CMP: 169 | TP: 151

IOC’s Q4 EBITDA stood at 104.4 billion (down 33% QoQ, PLe: 145 bn, cons. est: 156 bn) and PAT at 48.4 bn (down 40% QoQ, PLe: 66.9 bn, cons est: 73.5 bn). The weak set of results was primarily on account of lower refining margins although gross marketing margins remained moderate. Refining capacity utilization stood at 104.5%. IOCL declared a final dividend of Rs7/share.

The stock is currently trading at 1.2x FY26 P/BV and 12.3x FY26 EPS. Factoring in structural weakness in GRMs and inability to pass on rise in fuel cost we anticipate GRMs at US$6/bbl for FY25/26E and gross marketing margin at 4.2/ltr for FY25/26E. We re-rate the stock from ‘Sell’ to ‘Reduce’ due to correction in stock price rating with a TP of 151 based on 1x FY26E P/BV.
