    Share Market Live Updates: Arbitration Outcome Credit Positive for DIAL: Fitch Ratings

    Arbitration Outcome Credit Positive for DIAL: Fitch Ratings

    The arbitration tribunal’s decision in absolving Delhi International Airport Limited (DIAL, BB-/Positive) of its revenue share commitments for the pandemic period is a positive development for its credit profile, Fitch Ratings says. Fitch believes that this materially reduces the number of issues pending resolution at DIAL and also supports DIAL’s deleveraging in the near future. DIAL had invoked the force majeure clause during the pandemic to excuse the monthly annual fee (MAF) payment, which was then disputed by Airports Authority of India (AAI).

    In its decision awarded on 6 January 2024, the arbitration tribunal has excused DIAL from making the MAF payment for 19 March 2020 to 28 February 2022 due to the force majeure clause. It has directed AAI to refund INR5 billion to DIAL for 19 March 2020 to 31 December 2020 and waived the latter’s INR12 billion payment for 1 January 2021 to 28 February 2022. Further, the tribunal has allowed an extension in the airport concession period, subject to approval from government authorities, by one year and 11 months, i.e. the period excused under force majeure.

    The Positive Outlook on DIAL’s rating reflects Fitch’s expectation of deleveraging in the near future supported by growth in passenger traffic, expected tariff hikes and the resolution of key pending issues. Despite the tribunal’s decision, Fitch sees a risk that the decision may be challenged by AAI. Fitch will continue to monitor developments and take appropriate rating action when required.

    Stock Market Live Today: CRA Analytics’ report on bond market outlook in India

    • Bond yields moving ahead will be dictated as to what stance the Reserve Bank of India adopts in its upcoming monetary policy reviews. With domestic inflationary pressures rising and the Indian economy in a relatively sweet spot compared to the advanced economies. The Reserve Bank of India might not be in a hurry in lowering interest rates. Incoming inflation data will also be on the radar of the market participants.

    • The domestic debt market in the run up to the Union Budget and General Elections may witness volatility. Market participants will await as to whether the Union Government will come up with a populist budget or stick to the fiscal consolidation roadmap.

    • On the global front, monetary policy action by key central banks across the globe and crude oil prices will also remain in sharp focus. India imports more than 80% of its oil requirements and lower global crude oil prices is credit positive for the Indian economy. In addition to the above-mentioned factors, the movement of the rupee against the greenback and transaction trends by foreign institutional investors may also impact the domestic bond yield trajectory in the coming months.

    5)Fed income after expenses came in at a negative $114.3 billion last year, versus $58.8 billion in positive income the year before. The loss was tied to a jump in interest expenses faced by the central bank amid a rate hike campaign aimed at cooling inflation.

    6)The eurozone’s unemployment rate fell to 6.4% in November 2023, down from 6.5% in the previous month and from 6.7% the previous year, according to the latest data from Eurostat, the EU’s statistical office.

    9)The index of coincident economic indicators in Japan, which covers a range of data, such as factory output, employment, and retail sales, dropped to 114.5 in November 2023 from a final 115.9 in the prior month, flash data showed. This was the lowest reading since March, as the economy struggled to maintain strong post-pandemic recovery amid elevated inflation.

    10)China’s exports and imports grew slightly in December, despite deflationary pressures, according to official data. Exports rose by 2.3% to $303.6 billion, while imports rose by 0.2% to $228.2 billion. China’s total trade surplus for December was $75.3 billion, up 10.1% from $68.3 billion in November.

    Stock Market Live Today: Pre-market views by Avdhut Bagkar of StoxBox

    With traders digesting earnings news from several big-name companies and the latest US inflation data, stocks fluctuated throughout the trading session on Friday. While the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq eventually ended the session slightly higher, the narrower Dow showed a modest move to the downside. On Wall Street in the week ahead, investors will eye quarterly earnings reports and the energy market as the Middle East tensions could spark a further rise in oil prices. Last week, oil prices climbed after US and British airstrikes in Houthi-controlled areas of Yemen added to the ongoing tensions in the Middle East. The Asian market is poised for a broadly mixed open in the wake of reinforced bets of Federal Reserve rate cuts and Taiwan’s election at the weekend. Indian shares look to open a tad higher on Monday as investors digest macroeconomic data. India’s CPI rose to a four-month high of 5.69%. The inflation level remains within the RBI’s 2-6% tolerance range. The main contribution to the rising CPI data was Food inflation. The market will react to the earnings of some major names, including HDFC Bank, Hindustan Unilever, Asian Paints, IndusInd and UltraTech Cement, this week.

    Following a sharp rebound from the supports of 20DMA, the 50 index has now staged a bullish flag breakout with a breakaway gap that potentially indicates trend continuation. With this, the index has dragged its supports higher to the zone of 21600-21700 and sustenance above this area will bolster the price action to garner further bullish strength.

    Stock Market Live Today: OPENING BELL: Sensex and Nifty hit record high on global momentum, Indian markets on winning streak

    Indian markets opened firmly today, aligning with the upward momentum seen in Asian markets and the favourable performance of US markets on January 12. 

    The 30-share BSE Sensex climbed 461.40 points to 73,029.85 in early trade. The NSE Nifty gained 134.45 points to 22,029.

    On Friday, US stocks closed mostly higher, marking weekly gains ahead of the local holiday weekend. Financial markets will be closed on Monday.

    India’s industrial output showed muted growth in November, reaching 2.4%, a decline from the revised 11.6% growth in October. Retail inflation in December rose to 5.69%, up from 5.55% in November, influenced by the base effect.

    Across Asia, markets reacted positively to China’s central bank decision to maintain the key interest rate unchanged and the results of Taiwan’s recent election over the weekend.

    According to Deepak Jasani of HDFC Securities, “Nifty ended at record levels and extended the winning streak for the fourth consecutive session on January 12. At close, Nifty was up 1.14% or 247.4 points at 21894.6. Nifty rose to a fresh all-time high, breaking out of the last 2 weeks range and also out of a flag pattern on daily charts. On weekly charts it rose 0.85% forming a Hanging Man pattern at the top. This reflects the possibility of a reversal on breach of the low of the week i.e. 21449. Nifty could rise towards 21990 and later 22280 in the coming week while 21764 and 21449 could be the supports.”

    Stock Market Live Today: Weekly Index Outlook | Nifty 50: Short-term outlook is bullish

    Nifty began the week on a weak note. It broke below the key support level of 21,500, but did not sustain. Nifty fell to a low of 21,448.65 in the first half of the week, but then managed to recover all the loss. The strong rise on Friday indicates strength in the upmove.

    Stock Market Live Today:  Deepak Jasani of HDFC Securities on market opening

    Indian markets could open higher, in line with higher Asian markets today and positive US markets on Jan 12

    U.S. stocks ended mostly higher on Friday, and notched weekly gains ahead of the three-day weekend honouring the late civil-rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. Financial markets will be closed on Monday. U.S. stocks closed barely changed on Friday, after wavering between modest gains and losses, as mixed bank earnings offset cooler-than-expected inflation news that buoyed hopes for interest-rate cuts from the Federal Reserve.

    For the week, the Dow gained 0.3%, the S&P 500 climbed 1.8% and the Nasdaq jumped 3.1%, the preliminary data show. India’s industrial output saw muted growth in November after rising to a 16-month high in the previous month. The Index of Industrial Production grew 2.4% in November, as compared with a revised growth of 11.6% in October. Economists polled by Bloomberg had forecasted November IIP growth at 3.5%. IIP growth decelerated sharply from the previous month, primarily on account of a normalising base. India’s retail inflation rose in December, led by the base effect, though vegetable prices saw a sequential deceleration. The Consumer Price Index-based inflation stood at 5.69% in December, as compared with 5.55% in November, according to data from the Ministry of Statistics and Programme Implementation released on Monday. A panel of economists polled by Bloomberg had estimated a reading of 5.86% for December.

    U.S. producer prices unexpectedly fell in December (down 0.1% month over month and up 1% year on year) amid declining costs for goods such as diesel fuel and food, suggesting inflation would continue to subside and allow the Federal Reserve to start cutting interest rates this year. The report from the Labour Department on Friday, which also showed prices for services were unchanged for the third straight month, implied that a pick-up in consumer prices last month was likely a blip. It led economists to anticipate that the key price measures tracked by the U.S. central bank for its 2% inflation target rose moderately in December from the prior month.

    Shares in Asia were higher after China’s central bank unexpectedly kept a key interest rate unchanged, and in the wake of Taiwan’s election on the weekend. China’s central bank left the medium-term policy rate unchanged (2.50%) on Monday, defying market expectations as signs of a weaker currency continued to limit the scope of monetary easing.

    U.S. stock and bond markets will be closed on Monday for Martin Luther King Day.

    Nifty ended at record levels and extended the winning streak for the fourth consecutive session on January 12. At close, Nifty was up 1.14% or 247.4 points at 21894.6. Nifty rose to a fresh all-time high, breaking out of the last 2 weeks range and also out of a flag pattern on daily charts. On weekly charts it rose 0.85% forming a Hanging Man pattern at the top. This reflects the possibility of a reversal on breach of the low of the week i.e. 21449. Nifty could rise towards 21990 and later 22280 in the coming week while 21764 and 21449 could be the supports.

    Stock Market Live Today: Suman Chowdhury of Acuité Ratings & Research on IIP data

    “Industrial output for Nov-23 has disappointed even factoring in the impact of the festival holidays during the month and the adverse base factor. IIP has recorded a modest growth of 2.4% YoY, the lowest print in eight months since Mar-23. The IIP figure has been pulled down by the manufacturing sector which posted the lowest annualized growth of 1.2% in 13 months after a solid momentum in the early part of the fiscal. While a moderation in industrial activity is typically seen in the post festive season, the extent has taken us by surprise.

    Notwithstanding the sharp downward adjustment, the cumulative industrial output growth in the Apr-Nov’23 period stood at 6.4% and we expect that figure to be higher than 6.0% for the whole fiscal driven by the increased investments in infrastructure. However, the data on IIP is possibly an early indicator of the expected moderation in growth in the fourth quarter of FY24. While we have revised our GDP growth forecasts for FY24 to 6.8%, we expect the growth trajectory to slow down gradually over the next few quarters.” 

    Key Takeaways:

    1. Growth in India’s industrial production decelerated sharply into a low single-digit of 2.4%YoY in Nov’23, from a robust expansion of 11.6% in Oct’23 (revised marginally lower from 11.7% earlier).

    2. The strong moderation in Nov’23 annualised IIP growth is in line with the high-frequency lead indicators, which had seen a let-up in growth momentum. The end of the festive season in Nov’23, lower number of working days due to the Diwali holidays, shift in the timing of Diwali to November in 2023 vis-à-vis October in 2022, along with an adverse base cumulatively weighed on the industrial activity. 

    3. Going forward, as supportive seasonality wanes, and as the impact of domestic monetary tightening, pullback in government capex spending in Q4FY24, and anticipated global slowdown weigh, industrial activity momentum could remain subdued.

    4. To maintain a strong growth momentum in the last quarter, fiscal support, may be necessary esp. for the rural sector, which is expected to face income volatility on account of weather-related disruptions.

    5. From a GDP perspective, we have revised our growth forecast upwards to 6.8% which is still 50 bps lower than the NSO’s projected growth of 7.3% in FY24.

    Stock Market Live Today: Quote on FPI from V K Vijayakumar of Geojit Financial Services.

    “The surge in FPI inflows during December 2023 which stood at Rs 58372 crores, slowed down in early January 2024. As per NSDL data, total FPI investment through the stock exchanges in January up to 13th is Rs 2743 crores. In December, FPIs were big buyers in financial services and also in IT. FPIs also bought in sectors like autos, capital goods, oil and gas and telecom. This trend is likely to continue, going forward. Since 2024 is expected to witness further declines in U.S. interest rates, FPIs are likely to increase their purchases in 2024 too, particularly in the early months of 2024 in the run up to the General elections. FPI investment in debt is likely to accelerate, going forward.”
