Indices rally on back of encouraging GDP figures and positive global cues; Sensex gains 550 pts and Nifty almost 200 pts 

Indian shares on Friday saw broad-based gains after data showed the economy grew at its quickest pace in a year in the first quarter, which could boost foreign investor inflows. The market witnessed a broad-based buying with most sectors climbing in today's session.

The Nifty 50 index gained 181 pts to close the week at 19,435, while the S&P BSE Sensex increased 550 pts to 65,387. Today's rally ensured that the indices ended with gains in this week's trading.

Official data on Thursday showed that India's GDP expanded 7.8% on an annual basis in the June quarter, while concerns over dry weather conditions persisted.

Japan's Topix index closed at a 33-year high in a broad rally as investors looked for bargains and scooped up undervalued stocks, with Sony Group and financials leading the gains.

The broader Topix climbed 0.76% to its highest close since July 1990. The index advanced 3.7% for the week, its sharpest gain since the week ended Oct. 7, 2022. The Nikkei rose 0.28% posted a weekly gain of 3.44%.

The blue-chip FTSE 100 index rose on Friday led by heavyweight oil and miner stocks, although a drop in insurer Direct Line's shares pressured midcaps, ahead of a highly anticipated U.S. jobs reading.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: IMF Warns Rates, Conflict and Climate Top Emerging Markets Risks

The International Monetary Fund warned that emerging markets must grapple with post-pandemic risks from tougher global financial conditions, the fragmentation of world trade into rival blocs and the impact of climate change.

Addressing those interconnected challenges will require an array of tools, she said, including more efficiently raising revenue and spending, diversifying trade, accelerating reforms to attract more investment, and implementing fiscally and socially sustainable climate strategies. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: India Sees Russian Oil Imports Ebbing as Rival Suppliers Step Up

India’s splurge on cheap Russian crude may be over, as New Delhi’s traditional suppliers in the Middle East step back in with attractive conditions.

“Our dependence on Russian oil is going to decrease sharply," Oil Minister Hardeep Puri said in an interview. “The cost viability from the Gulf is much more attractive now."

India’s consumption of Russian crude has soared since President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine in February last year, ousting Saudi Arabia and Iraq from the top spots. From negligible levels, it soared to account for nearly half of supplies in May.

However, rising prices have squeezed the discount on Russian crude and limited the attractiveness of those spot purchases, making other sources, some with term contracts, appealing once again. Moscow has also said this week it plans to extend export curbs. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: TIW Capital perspective from on GDP Announcement: Slowdown in agriculture and a sparse rainfall distribution in August may make its revival more challenging

Mohit Ralhan, Chief Executive Officer TIW Capital: The GDP growth came in at a solid 7.8% YoY in Q1 FY 2024. Both consumption and investment activity grew at a robust rate. This growth is quite significant since it has been achieved even though the government expenditure declined compared to Q1 FY 2023 and weak global demand weighed on exports. Services growth was led by financial and real estate services which grew at 12.2% YoY. Even other services like trade, hotel & transport grew at 9.2% YoY indicating the solid revival in contact intensive services post Covid. Construction also grew at 7.9% YoY. Manufacturing and mining also grew at 4.7% and at 5.8% respectively, making the up move quite broad based. Although there was a slowdown in agriculture and a sparse rainfall distribution in August may make its revival more challenging, the growth in major parts of economy has more than covered for this, confirming India's long term growth trajectory.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Mint Mark to Market: BHEL investors are charged up on robust new order inflows

According to analysts at Nuvama Research, the estimated value of the project is Rs10,000 crore to 12,000 crore, taking its year-to FY24 order inflows to Rs30,000 to 34,000 crore versus 23,500 crore in FY23. Also, with the likely increase in demand for thermal power, there is a case for higher thermal capex and this bodes well for BHEL’s future earnings.

“Accordingly, we reckon fresh thermal ordering over the next four–five years at ~30GW, of which BHEL could bag 50% in our view. This implies ~3GW/year of thermal order inflow for BHEL, in addition to the base order inflow of Rs15,000–20000 crore, potentially driving an EPS CAGR of 83% over FY23–26E," added the Nuvama report. EPS is earnings per share. (Read More)

Satish KUMAR and Abbas PUNJANI from Incred Equities recommendations on Vinati Organics: Solid products; growth to resume in FY25F

ADD - Upgrade | INR1,847 tp:INR2,111

■ Vinati Organics (VOL) has one of the best earnings growth outlooks, aided by a likely rise in ATBS margin and capacity expansion-driven volume growth.

■ IBB poses some risk, but it’s not as important as ATBS for Vinati Organics. IBB’s margin may fall as toluene prices are likely to rise.

■ We value Vinati Organics at 41x its one-year forward FY25F EPS to arrive at a higher target price of Rs2,111. Upgrade our rating on the stock to ADD.

Geojit Financial views on today's market: Long-term investors can utilise weakness in the market to buy high-quality stocks

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: Headwinds stronger than tailwinds have pushed the Nifty down by 406 points in August. Some headwinds like weakening monsoon and sluggish global growth are likely to weigh on markets. And now there is another headwind coming from the Brent crude rising to $87. FPI flows in the cash market turned negative in August after strong positive flows in the previous three months. These headwinds will constrain a sustained recovery in markets.

Long-term investors can utilise weakness in the market to buy high quality stocks in banking, capital goods and automobiles. The rally in the mid-and small-cap segment is turning unhealthy with the participation of many low-grade stocks. This trend is unlikely to last long."

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Vedanta lobbied to weaken environmental regulations during COVID-19 pandemic: OCCRP report

The Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) has revealed that Vedanta engaged in a discreet lobbying effort aimed at undermining critical environmental regulations during the COVID-19 pandemic. In an article published on Thursday, the OCCRP detailed how Vedanta Group pursued this strategy.

According to the OCCRP's report, Anil Agarwal, the Chairman of Vedanta Group, communicated with former environment minister Prakash Javadekar in January 2021. During this exchange, Agarwal suggested that the Indian government could enhance the momentum of the country's swift economic recovery by permitting mining companies to escalate their production by up to 50%. This proposal came with a stipulation that these companies wouldn't be obligated to secure fresh environmental clearances.

Additionally, the OCCRP article revealed that Vedanta's subsidiary, Cairn India, successfully orchestrated efforts to eliminate public hearings for exploratory drilling in oil blocks that it had secured through government auctions. This discreet lobbying campaign, as outlined in the report, had the aim of bypassing these hearings in relation to the oil business's operations. (Read More)

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Wall Street ends lower, closes out first losing month since February

A late-afternoon fade left stocks modestly lower Thursday as Wall Street closed out its first losing month since February.

The S&P 500 gave up an early gain to close 0.2% lower. The benchmark index ended August down 1.8%, though a four-day winning streak going back to last week helped chip away at the severity of the monthly decline.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.5%, while the Nasdaq composite eked out a 0.1% gain.

Market jitters over the possibility that the Federal Reserve might have to keep interest rates higher for longer following reports showing the U.S. economy remains remarkably resilient led to the market's pullback in August after what had been a banner year. This week, reports on job openings, consumer confidence and inflation stoked hopes on Wall Street that the Fed may hold rates steady at its next policy meeting in September.

That helped limit the market's losses for August. The S&P 500, which soared 19.5% through July, remains 17.4% higher for the year, while the tech-heavy Nasdaq is up 34.1%. The Dow is up 4.8%. (AP)
