Sensex Today | Market Close Highlights : European shares moved slightly up on Tuesday, led by gains in basic resources shares and upbeat earnings, while investors and central bankers await inflation data this week that could alter the course for interest rates.

The pan-European STOXX 600 was up 0.1% by 8:21 GMT.

Asian shares slipped on Tuesday, with slightly warmer-than-expected Japanese inflation putting investors on guard ahead of price data due in Europe and the U.S. this week, though bitcoin extended gains on signs that institutional buyers are circling.

The yen steadied at 150.50 to the dollar and inched off a three-month low on the euro as Japanese inflation stayed at the central bank's 2% year-on-year target, keeping alive expectations it would exit negative rates by April.

Tokyo's Nikkei eked a fresh record high, but closed just 0.01% firmer. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dipped 0.2%, keeping below last week's seven-month peak.

Later in the day, U.S. numbers for durable goods sales, consumer confidence and home prices will be on investors' radar.

Brent crude futures hovered around $82.63 a barrel after Reuters reported Hamas received a draft Gaza truce proposal including a 40-day pause in fighting.

S&P 500 nudged 0.1% lower while Nasdaq futures, FTSE futures and European futures each fell about 0.2%.

Ten-year U.S. Treasury yields were last 1.4 basis points lower at 4.29%. Two-year yields fell 3 bps to 4.71%.

Sensex Today Live : ICICI Securities gives update on the unsecured lending in banking sector

Sensex Today Live : Monthly bounce data suggests no material signs of risk build-up; bounce rates are now better than pre-covid levels

Over the last two quarters, there have been intense discussions on the quality and quantity of growth in the unsecured personal loan space.

We launch a new monthly series analysing the bounce data, as a lead indicator for any signs of retail risk build-up.

Bounce data (both volume-wise and value-wise) for Jan’24 suggests no material signs of risk build-up with unsuccessful rates now being better than pre-covid levels.

Bounce rate data suggests no rise in stress; unsuccessful rates are trending lower and are better than pre-covid period.

Bounce data for the month of Jan’24 suggests continued strong asset quality behaviour.

Unsuccessful auto-debit requests (bounce rate) were recorded at comfortable level of 20.6%, which is better than MoM (21.2%) and closer to the lowest levels in the last 4-5 years.

Unsuccessful bounce rate (volume-wise) also broadly continued its improving trajectory with Jan’24 print at 26.6% vs 28.9% YoY, though marginally up vs 26.2% MoM.

Historically, volume-wise bounce rate is higher vs value-wise, suggesting relatively higher stress in low ticket transactions / products.

Importantly, bounce rate (volume wise), after being flat for several months, has also started to settle at lower levels, suggesting improved behaviour in low-ticket size product as well.

Sensex Today Live : ICICI Securities recommends to 'HOLD' Sanofi

Sensex Today Live : CMP: INR 9,042

Target Price: INR 9,170 (INR 8,000)

Price cuts dampen India prospects; demerger on track

The company is set to launch diabetes brands, namely Soliqua (Q1CY24), Insutage and Cetapin S in CY24 and Allegra M (consumer brand) in CY25.

It is also planning to source Insutage and Cetapin S locally to boost margins.

Demerger of the consumer business (28% of India sales) is on track to happen in Q2CY24 and it has on-boarded a management team and independent directors for this business.

We cut our CY24E EPS by 2% to factor in weak results. Maintain HOLD, but raise target price to INR 9,170, valuing consumer/residual business at 32x/28x CY25E earnings.

Sensex Today Live : Markets eye stock re-ratings post release of govt's consumption expenditure data

Sensex Today Live : Following the government's capex-push led surge in infrastructure shares such as L&T, the stock market is likely to shift its focus to the consumption story, particularly in rural India. This shift aligns with the release of the National Sample Survey Office's (NSSO) delayed monthly household expenditure survey for 2022-23.

The latest results reveal that average Indian household spending has more than doubled in the last ten years, with a greater portion of expenditure going towards discretionary items such as clothes, television sets, and entertainment, while spending on food items has decreased. The share of spending on food dropped below 50% for the first time in rural India. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : IT index outperforms Nifty in 2024 but is all really well with the sector? Here's what investors should know

Sensex Today Live : The IT sector has outperformed the Nifty 50 in 2024 year-to-date (YTD), surpassing the benchmark again after doing so in 2023. So far in 2024, the Nifty IT index has jumped around 6% compared to a 1.65% gain in the benchmark index.

The IT index has risen over 3% in February so far, extending gains for the fourth straight month. The index had hit its 52-week high of 38,559.85 earlier this month on February 19, 2024, following the overall positive sentiment in the Indian market.

In a recent note, brokerage house Ambit Capital noted that the March quarter (Q4) outlook doesn’t suggest immediate recovery. The brokerage suggests that the current environment, with growth and margins likely to remain below pre-Covid levels, may not support the structural increase in valuations based on growth alone.

Sensex Today Live : The crackdown on AIF abuse comes with some collateral damage

Sensex Today Live : India's top banks including State Bank of India, HDFC Bank and Axis Bank have walked back on capital commitments made to private equity and venture capital funds to avoid falling foul of a recent central bank circular on alternative investment funds (AIFs), three people familiar with the matter said. The development has rattled around 100 funds, the people said, putting a question mark over AIFs operating in a range of sectors including startup funding and buyout finance.

In December, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) asked banks and non-bank lenders to sell investments in AIFs linked to their debtor companies. PE and VC funds raise significant amounts from domestic banks through AIFs, which they invest in companies across sectors. Once a fund manager finalizes an investment, a capital call is made - a request to draw down the promised money.

In a recent case, SBI declined a capital call from the sovereign-backed National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF), two of the three people cited above said on condition of anonymity. The bank has also declined capital calls from its own funds, a third person said, referring to several funds owned by India's largest bank by assets. SBI, NIIF, HDFC Bank and Axis Bank did not respond to requests for comment. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Mint Explainer: Why auto industry is divided on tax breaks for hybrid vehicles

Sensex Today Live : Top automakers are divided on the Indian government's tax policy on hybrid cars. While Maruti Suzuki and Toyota advocate for lower taxes for hybrids to encourage their adoption, Tata Motors, Mahindra, and Hyundai argue against any preferential tax treatment for these vehicles.

These companies account for over 85% of the Indian car market, effectively making this an industry-wide discord. Both the camps have lobbied with various government departments and ministries, including the Prime Minister’s Office.

Proponents of hybrids argue that tax reductions would narrow the price gap with conventional cars, thereby increasing consumer adoption. They believe this shift would assist the government in achieving lower emission goals and decrease the country’s oil import bill. Mint explains what the issue is all about.

Sensex Today Live : FPI holdings of Indian stocks dip to a decadal low of 16.3% in January

Sensex Today Live : The aggregate holdings of foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) in the Indian stock market decreased to a decadal low. FPIs now hold around 62 lakh crore worth of Indian stocks as of end January 2024, against the aggregate market capitalisation of 380 lakh crore.

This implies that FPI holdings in Indian equities fell further to 16.3% at the end of January 2024, which is a decadal low, from 16.6% as of November 2023, according to ICICI Securities.

The lowest holding of FPIs in recent times is driven by incremental selling in 2024 so far, which is around $3.5 billion, and significant outperformance of small caps, where FPIs have lower allocation along with their overall portfolio orientation, the brokerage said in a report.

In the calendar year 2023, FPI buying in midcaps and smallcaps was much higher than in largecaps, thereby resulting in their holdings of mid and smallcaps rising to 17% and 9%.

As of December 2022, FPIs held 78% of their portfolio within large caps while their holdings in mid and small-caps were at 14%/8%, based on shareholding data of top-1,000 stocks by marketcap.

Sensex Today Live : The scramble for leased jets will show up in air fares soon

Sensex Today Live : Aircraft rentals have leapt in the last year as airlines scramble to service soaring demand, with every available plane witnessing demand from four to five carriers.

In the popular narrow-body, single-aisle category, the increase has been steeper for older aircraft, portending higher fares as they come with higher operating costs. The rise in lease rates comes at a time the airline industry is struggling with a shortage of aircraft worldwide.

The average market lease rate for a 10-year-old Airbus A320 surged 14% to $177,000 per month in January from $155,000 per month a year earlier, showed data from UK-based aviation research firm Ishka.
