Oil drops on China COVID worries

Oil prices fell on Monday in volatile trade, reversing some gains from the previous session as markets braced for new mass COVID testing in China potentially hitting demand, a concern that outweighed ongoing concerns about tight supply.

Top Funds See Value in Risky India Corporate Debt After Rout

Two of India’s biggest money managers are turning bullish on bonds of riskier companies, lured by the value in higher yields after the central bank tightened monetary policy.

They also see corporate credit worries fading after companies took advantage of easy liquidity during the pandemic to clean up their balance sheets.

ICICI Prudential Asset Management Co., India’s second-largest money manager, is on the hunt, even as credit markets from the US to Asia show the worst signs of stress in more than two years. It sees a potential entry point to add high-yield credit as spreads widen over the next few months.

Nippon India Mutual Fund, backed by Japan’s biggest private life insurer, expects the yield gap to government bonds to increase by as much as 30 basis points, creating value for investors.

China auto sales rebound in June after weak first half

China’s auto sales rose by a lackluster 3.4% over a year earlier in the first half of 2022 as anti-virus controls kept buyers away from dealerships, but demand in the industry’s biggest global market rebounded in June, an industry group reported Monday.

Sales in January-June rose to 10.4 million, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers. June sales jumped 41.2% over a year earlier to 2.2 million after controls that shut down Shanghai and other industrial centers were eased.

Total vehicle sales, including trucks and buses, fell 6.6% over a year earlier in the first half to 12.1 million, CAAM reported. Total sales in June rose 23.8% to 2.5 million.

The decline in total sales was less severe than an estimate of a 7.1% contraction released Friday by CAAM based on data from major brands. Growth in June sales was stronger than the earlier 20.9% estimate.

US equity futures drop with stocks as dollar jumps

European stocks dropped along with US equity futures Monday as the risk of more Covid curbs in China exacerbated overarching worries about the global economic outlook. The dollar jumped and bonds gained.

The Stoxx Europe 600 index shed about 1%, with carmakers and raw materials among the wort-performing sectors. Contracts on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 were lower before the US earnings season gets underway. Twitter shares fell more than 8% on Germany’s Tradegate versus its US closing level, after Elon Musk terminated his $44 billion takeover approach of the social media company.

A dollar gauge was back around the highest level since 2020, and the euro weakened closer toward parity with the greenback. Yields on US Treasury yields and European bonds ticked lower.

Traders are also keeping tabs on developments in Washington as President Joe Biden weighs removing some of the Donald Trump-era tariffs on Chinese goods worth hundreds of billions of dollars.

Rupee falls 7 paise to 79.33 against US dollar in early trade

The rupee depreciated 7 paise to 79.33 against the US dollar in early trade on Monday as a muted trend in domestic equities and risk-averse sentiments weighed on the local unit.

China lockdown worries hit Asian equity, crude markets

Oil falls on recession jitters, China COVID curbs

Oil prices fell around $1 on Monday in volatile trade, reversing some gains from the previous session, as worries about a recession and China's COVID-19 curbs hitting demand outweighed ongoing concerns about tight supply.

Brent crude futures fell 82 cents, or 0.8%, to $106.20 at 0314 GMT, after climbing 2.3% on Friday.

U.S. WTI crude futures declined by $1.04, or 1%, to $103.75, paring a 2% gain from Friday.

Trading was thinned by a public holiday in parts of Southeast Asia, including oil trading hub Singapore.

Both contracts posted weekly declines last week as the market was dominated by worries that rising interest rates to curb inflation would spark a recession and dent oil demand.

Huge dividend payout: This stock yielded 15.7% in FY22. Do you own?

Dividend paying stock: A stock investor not just earn from the rise in share price only. The listed companies have various other options, which they exercise to help its shareholders earn even when the stock has failed to outperform its peers. Indian Oil Corporation Limited shares are glaring example of it. This stock has delivered 1.7 per cent year-to-date (YTD) return to is shareholders. However, the company has announced dividend on three occasions during the financial year 2021-22. This helped Indian Oil shareholders earn whopping 15.70 per cent on their investment without booking any profit in their holdings. Most interestingly, they earned to the tune of 16 per cent when the stock has given mere 1.70 per cent return in last one year.

India inflation likely held steady just above 7% in June

India's retail inflation likely held steady in June, but well above the Reserve Bank of India's tolerance limit for a sixth month as lower fuel and cooking oil prices offset higher services and food costs, a Reuters poll found.

Despite a substantial recent increase in food prices, rising at the fastest pace in nearly two years, overall inflation was partly contained after the government cut taxes on petrol and diesel and imposed restrictions on food exports.

But most economists warned the near-term outlook was highly uncertain as a heatwave last month pushed up vegetable prices. The government has also cut estimates of wheat production because of dry spells in northern India.

The July 4-8 Reuters poll of 42 economists showed inflation as measured by the consumer price index (CPI) was steady at an annual 7.03% in June, versus 7.04% in May.

Forecasts for the data, due at 1200 GMT on Tuesday, July 12, were in a 6.45%-7.70% range.

FPIs take out over ₹4,000 cr from equities in July so far; pace of selling slows

Foreign investors continue to desert Indian equity markets and have pulled out over 4,000 crore this month so far amid steady appreciation of the dollar and rising interest rates in the US.

However, the pace of selling by foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) has been declining over the last few weeks.

"With oil prices breaching the USD 100 a barrel mark, and refining margins cracking across markets, hopes for lower inflation helped improve market sentiments. RBI's measure to help stem the sliding rupee added to the building bullish momentum," said Vijay Singhania, Chairman at TradeSmart.

Macro data, Q1 earnings, global cues to dictate market trend this week: Analysts

Trading activity in the domestic equity market this week will be influenced by a host of macroeconomic data announcements, including inflation number for June, first quarter earnings from companies, global trends and foreign funds movement, analysts said.

Besides, other key factors like rupee-dollar trend and Brent crude oil price will also guide market sentiments, they added.

"This week, participants will first react to TCS numbers. Besides, macroeconomic data viz. IIP and CPI on July 12 and WPI on July 14 will be in focus. Apart from domestic factors, global cues like performance of the US markets, crude movement etc will remain on the radar," said Ajit Mishra, VP - Research, Religare Broking Ltd.

FMCG makers expect recovery in volume growth, margin in Q2FY23

With commodity prices peaking out, major FMGC players, including Parle Products, Godrej Consumer Products and Dabur expect a recovery in demand in both rural and urban markets going forward aided by price stability.

Moreover, FMCG makers can look forward to better gross margins by the last month of Q2FY23 on a year-on-year basis, as there is a lag of around two months in their inventory coupled with forward contracts, experts say.

Prices of commodities have now peaked out and there has been a 15-20 per cent decline from peak prices in most commodities, according to Parle Products Senior Category Head Mayank Shah.

IT stocks likely to remain under pressure amid global headwinds: Analysts

Information technology stocks are likely to remain under pressure in the near-term amid headwinds emanating from the worsening economic situation in key global markets and financial market volatility, according to analysts.

While the country's largest software exporter TCS reported a 5.2 per cent rise in June quarter net profit on Friday, kicking off the latest earnings cycle, IT shares have been sliding, with the BSE Information Technology index tumbling nearly 24 per cent so far this year.

Cross-currency headwinds and large scale talent churn resulting in higher wage hikes could also add to the challenges, especially in terms of the impact on operating margins, analysts opined.

US futures, most Asian stocks drop as dollar jumps

Most Asian stocks dropped along with US equity futures Monday and the dollar jumped as the risk of more Covid curbs in China exacerbated overarching worries about the global economic outlook.

An Asian equity gauge fell amid declines in Hong Kong and China. Japan was the one bright spot, buoyed by the prospect of administrative stability after the ruling coalition expanded its majority in an upper house election.

A dollar gauge was back around the highest level since 2020. The yen was the weakest performer in the Group-of-10 basket. Commodity-linked currencies were also under pressure. Raw materials including oil were on the back foot.

Shanghai reported its first case of the highly infectious BA.5 omicron sub-variant Sunday and warned of “very high" risks, stoking fears of more lockdowns given China remains wedded to stamping out the virus. Casino shares sapped Hong Kong after Macau announced the closure of almost all business for a week from Monday due to a virus outbreak.

Treasuries edged lower, taking the US 10-year yield toward 3.1%. Inversions along the yield curve are potential signs of economic retrenchment ahead.

Bitcoin is more likely to hit $10,000 than $30,000, survey finds

Bitcoin bulls beware: Wall Street expects the cryptocurrency’s crash to get a whole lot worse.

The token is more likely to tumble to $10,000, cutting its value roughly in half, than it is to rally back to $30,000, according to 60% of the 950 investors who responded to the latest MLIV Pulse survey. Forty percent saw it going the other way. It was around $21,850 late Friday afternoon, ending the week up over 12%.

The lopsided prediction underscores how bearish investors have become. The crypto industry has been rocked by troubled lenders, collapsed currencies, and an end to the easy money policies of the pandemic that fueled a speculative frenzy in financial markets.

Some $2 trillion has vanished from the market value of cryptocurrencies since late last year, according to data compiled by CoinGecko.

Safe haven dollar stands tall on inflation, energy jitters

The dollar was on the front foot at the start of a week in which U.S. and Chinese data and European energy security were top of mind, as investor concerns about global economic growth offered support to the safe haven currency.

The euro languished at $1.01475, having lost 2.3% last week and briefly falling to its lowest since late 2002.

The greenback gained 0.37% on the yen to 136.63 in early trade, not far from a 20-year peak hit last month, leaving the dollar index at 107.29.

Tokyo stocks open higher after Sunday vote

Tokyo stocks opened higher on Monday after Japan's ruling bloc secured a strong win in Sunday's upper house election, held just days after the assassination of former premier Shinzo Abe.

The benchmark Nikkei 225 index was up 1.55 percent, or 411.63 points, at 26,928.82 in early trade, while the broader Topix index advanced 1.41 percent, or 26.62 points, to 1,914.06.

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida's Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) and partners won more than 75 of the 125 upper house seats up for grabs, according to local media.

Asia shares open gingerly on U.S. inflation, earnings season

Asian shares started cautiously on Monday as investors braced for a U.S. inflation report that could force another super-sized hike in interest rates, and the start of an earnings season where profits could be under pressure.

An upbeat U.S. June payrolls report already has the market wagering heavily on a hike of 75 basis points from the Federal Reserve this month, and sending bond yields higher.

Underlining the global nature of the inflation problem, central banks in Canada and New Zealand are expected to tighten further this week.

While Wall Street did eke out some gains last week the market mood will be tested by earnings from JPMorgan and Morgan Stanley on Thursday, with Citigroup and Wells Fargo the day after.

Oil mixed as market weighs tight supply against recession jitters

Oil prices were unsteady on Monday, with Brent trading higher on supply concerns while West Texas Intermediate (WTI) dipped, as traders balanced supply concerns against worries about a recession or China's COVID-19 curbs hitting demand.

Brent crude futures were up 11 cents, or 0.1%, at $107.13 a barrel at 0102 GMT, adding to a 2.3% gain on Friday.

U.S. WTI crude futures however slipped 15 cents, or 0.1%, to $104.64 a barrel, paring a 2% gain from Friday.

Trading was thinned by a public holiday in parts of Southeast Asia.

Both contracts posted weekly declines last week as the market was dominated by worries that rising interest rates to curb inflation would spark a recession and dent oil demand.
