The lenders also said they would be required by law to provision 80 billion-90 billion Indian rupees ($1.07 billion-$1.2 billion) in their books on account of the default by the country's second-largest retailer.

"Lenders have already classified/begun classifying the loan account of FRL as a non-performing asset ("NPA") since the payment was not made within" the stipulated time, they said in the filing, reviewed by Reuters.

Naveen Kulkarni, chief Investment Officer, Axis Securities on Budget and equity markets

The Union Budget has laid down a strong platform for capacity creation and productivity improvement for the economy. We believe that Banks like ICICI Bank, SBI, HDFC Bank can witness strong lending growth coupled with margin expansion on the back of assets getting repriced faster than liabilities. Another sector that should do well is Capital Goods since the Government wants new capacities to come in, and thus the additional PLI schemes getting announced. Some of the stocks we recommend in the Capital Goods sector are Siemens, Voltamp Transformers, and L&T.

India's services growth at 6-mth low in Jan, input costs at decade high

India's dominant services sector expanded at its slowest pace in six months in January as restrictions due to a new wave of COVID-19 cases and surging prices weighed on demand, a private survey showed.

The IHS Markit Services Purchasing Managers' Index slumped to 51.5 in January from 55.5 in December, far below the 53.0 expected in a Reuters poll of economists but still above the 50-mark separating growth from contraction.

"The escalation of the pandemic and reintroduction of curfews had a detrimental impact on growth across the service sector," noted Pollyanna De Lima, economics associate director at IHS Markit.

We continue to like V-Guard’s business model due to (1) strong market shares in stabilizers, water heaters and pumps, (2) investments in distribution and brand-building and (3) investments and likely success in kitchen appliances over the medium term. However, we cut our earnings estimates due to continued input material inflation. We maintain ADD rating on the stock with a revised DCF-based TP of Rs240 (implied P/E 30x of FY24E EPS).

India may cut record 2022/23 market borrowing plan by up to 600 billion rupees: Report

The Indian government may reduce by as much as 600 billion rupees its planned record market borrowing of 14.95 trillion rupees ($200 billion) for the next fiscal year, two government sources said.

The sources said the latest bond switch conducted by the government with the central bank at the end of January was not factored into budget estimates released on Tuesday.

The reduction could be announced before the end of March, the sources said requesting anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

India's 10-year bond yield continued to rise on Wednesday, hitting a two-and-half year high, largely in reaction to the latest borrowing plan, which was over 40% higher than the borrowing slated for this year.

Markets had been expecting borrowing of 12-13 trillion rupees for 2022/23.

The markets are facing some upside pressure and have resisted around the 17800 level. That has now become a crucial patch to get past for the markets to start a new upward trajectory. If we can close above 17800, we should see higher levels. On the flip side, the current support is at 17200 and if that breaks, we will resume the current downtrend.

Biden's Fed board nominees become political footballs

Though set up as an institution operating above the partisan fray in Washington, the Federal Reserve has again become a political football, with Republicans and business groups attacking President Joe Biden's nominees to serve on the central bank's board.

Biden last month announced a slate of candidates who would at long last fill all the seats of the seven-member board, and include the first Black woman to hold the position since the Fed was founded 108 years ago.

If all are three confirmed, the majority of the board members would be women for the first time, and most would be named by a Democratic president.

Fresh inflation record creates headache for ECB

Record eurozone inflation will feed a tense debate within European Central Bank over whether to raise interest rates when its policy-setting governing council meets on Thursday, with the bloc under pressure from supply disruptions and high energy prices.

Inflation unexpectedly rose to 5.1 percent in the euro area in January, figures from Eurostat showed on Wednesday, the highest value since records for the currency club began in 1997.

While its counterparts in the United States and Britain are laying the ground for rate hikes in the near future, the ECB has so far expressed little interest in raising borrowing costs this year.

ECB President Christine Lagarde has repeatedly said that a tightening of monetary policy in 2022 was "very unlikely", but the surge in inflation will embolden critics who say action should come sooner.

Biden and Macron Discuss Russian Troop Buildup

The U.S. gave the green light to plans to move more troops to Europe and dispatch soldiers already stationed on the continent further east as it seeks to send a stronger military message alongside its diplomatic efforts with Russia over Ukraine.

About 2,000 soldiers will travel from the U.S. to Europe in the coming days, while 1,000 troops based in Germany will be deployed in Romania, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said at a briefing. The moves are temporary, he added.

Russia quickly criticized the decision. Moscow has decried the presence of North Atlantic Treaty Organization troops near Russian borders and called for the alliance to withdraw its forces to positions they occupied in 1997, before it expanded into former Warsaw Pact countries.

Gold Holds Gains as Traders Weigh Jobs Drop, Geopolitical Risks

Gold was steady after a three-day advance, as investors weighed the drop in employment at U.S. companies ahead of a key jobs report, along with simmering geopolitical tensions.

U.S. businesses’ payrolls fell last month by the most since the early days of the pandemic, due to the spread of the omicron coronavirus variant, according to ADP Research Institute data. That release came before Friday’s employment report from the Labor Department.

Shares of Facebook parent Meta plunge 22% on lower profits

Newly renamed Meta is investing heavily in its futuristic “metaverse" project, but for now, relies on advertising revenue for nearly all its income. So when it posted sharply higher costs but gave a weak revenue forecast late Wednesday, investors got spooked — and knocked almost $200 billion off the valuation of the company formerly known as Facebook.

Meta’s shares fell 22.6% to $249.90 in after-hours trading. If the drop holds until the market opens Thursday, the company's overall value, known as its market capitalization, is on track to drop by a figure greater than the size of the entire Greek economy, based on data from the World Bank.

Stocks end higher on strong amid mixed U.S. earnings, weak economic reports

Global stocks rallied on Wednesday to close higher as strong earnings from U.S. technology companies and OPEC+ plans for moderate oil output helped to counter jitters over weak economic reports.

Investors also shrugged off the pace of central banks' interest rate hikes.

The STOXX index of 600 European companies rose 0.45%, up for a third straight session, to recoup nearly half its losses during January's global rout in shares.

MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe gained 0.80%.

Crude oil eyed seven-year highs and the dollar eased. On Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 0.63% and the S&P 500 gained 0.94%. The Nasdaq Composite added 0.5%.
