Global Inflation May Be Nearing Its Peak, IMF’s Georgieva Says

The global surge in consumer prices may be close to the high point of the current cycle but might yet prove stubborn, International Monetary Fund Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva said.

In the week that US inflation for October is likely show another outcome close to 8%, she spoke to Francine Lacqua on Bloomberg Television at the UN’s annual climate change summit in the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh.

“I’m not going to jump ahead of data, but it is very possible that we are peaking," Georgieva said. “We now see central banks very united on fighting inflation as a top priority and rightly so. If we don’t succeed, it would de-anchor and then the foundation for growth which is price stability is dented."

India's forex reserves jump likely fuelled by revaluation, forward book changes

The big jump in India's foreign exchange reserves in the last week of October was likely fuelled by the softer dollar and changes in the central bank's forward book, economists said on Monday.

India's forex reserves rose by $6.5 billion to $531.1 billion in the week through Oct. 28, marking their biggest weekly increase since September 2021, data released by the Reserve Bank of India on Friday showed.

"This is predominantly due to revaluation changes on the back of the decline in the dollar," Vivek Kumar, an economist at QuantEco Research, said.

"Another thing that could have led to this is the changes in RBI's forward reserves."

He estimates revaluation changes can "at best" account for $3 billion of the total change in reserves. (Reuters)

Large scale layoffs coming at Facebook's parent company Meta: report

After job cuts at Twitter, Facebook’s parent company Meta is planning to begin “large-scale layoffs" this week in what could be the largest reduction to date at a "major technology corporation in a year that has seen a tech-industry retrenchment," a media report said.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the layoffs at Meta, which has more than 87,000 employees, are expected to affect "many thousands of employees" and could come as soon as Wednesday.

The WSJ report said that company officials have told employees to cancel nonessential travel beginning this week.

“The planned layoffs would be the first broad head-count reductions to occur in the company’s 18-year history. While smaller on a percentage basis than the cuts at Twitter Inc. this past week, which hit about half of that company’s staff, the number of Meta employees expected to lose their jobs could be the largest to date at a major technology corporation in a year that has seen a tech-industry retrenchment," it said.

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: "The stellar Q2 numbers from the PSU banking majors SBI and BoB reinforce the ongoing bullish story in banking.

Axis Securities recommendation on SIS: BUY with TP of ₹475

Axis Securities says, “International Business Struggles; Strong Market Penetration to Provide Growth"

SIS reported strong growth in Q2FY23 with revenue at 2,767 Cr, registering a growth of 3.3% QoQ. Consolidated EBITDA for the quarter de-grew by 9.1% QoQ to 110 Cr, owing to the tepid international business. The company reported a net income of 66 Cr, declining 18% QoQ. Security Services in India exhibited a robust growth of 8.7% QoQ, driven by the rising demand for security guards and mandatory checkups. The company’s International Security Services declined by 3.6% QoQ and stood at 1,161 Cr, primarily owing to the decline from Covid-related contracts which were temporary in nature, and were only partially offset by the increase in revenues from existing customers and segments that had been hit by the pandemic. On a brighter note, the Facility Management business grew by 10.7% QoQ and stood at 471 Cr. Cash conversion remained high during Q2FY23 with OCF/EBITDA at 4.8%. We recommend a BUY rating on the stock and assign an 18x P/E multiple to its FY24E earnings of 28.4/share which gives a TP of 475/share, implying an upside of 15% from the CMP.

Jio proposes to deposit ₹3,720 crore in escrow account to acquire RCom's tower, fibre assets

Telecom operator Jio has proposed to deposit 3,720 crore in an escrow account to complete the acquisition of Reliance Infratel which is undergoing a liquidation process.

Billionaire Mukesh Dhirubhai Ambani-run Jio placed the bid of 3,720 crore in November 2019 to acquire tower and fibre asset of a debt-ridden subsidiary of his younger brother Anil Ambani-managed firm Reliance Communications.

Jio's subsidiary Reliance Projects and Property Management Services in an application before NCLT last month said that the company is committed to and is willing to implement the resolution plan of Reliance Infratel, which was approved by the committee of creditors earlier.

Jio said the delay in the acquisition of RITL (Reliance Infratel Ltd) assets due to inter-creditor disputes will deteriorate the value of assets. (PTI)

Wall Street rallies on Friday, in fits and starts, after jobs report

Stocks rallied Friday, but only after yo-yoing several times, as Wall Street struggled with what to make of the latest reading on the U.S. jobs market and what it means for interest rates and the odds of a recession.

The S&P 500 climbed 1.4% after seeing an even bigger rally from the morning disappear completely, only to recover at the end of the day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 1.3% after veering from a gain of 610 points to a loss of 62, while the Nasdaq composite added 1.3%.

The latest set of gyrations in what's already been a wild year for markets followed a U.S. government report showing the unemployment rate ticked higher in October, employers added fewer jobs than they had a month earlier and gains for workers' wages slowed a touch. (AP)
