Stock Market Live Updates: JP Morgan’s India inclusion fuels optimism in bond markets
The news is a long-standing win for India’s policymakers and markets have rightfully cheered the announcement. Despite the negativity around global bond yields, we believe our markets will remain quite resilient after this inclusion. In the medium term, our target for the benchmark 10-year bond yields at 6.75% remains on track.
For the medium term, once this entire noise around Fed hikes and global yields stabilizes, we believe peak market rates are behind us and market yields could gradually soften. From a demand perspective, markets could see incremental buying from active foreign funds. That would probably be less than $ 5 billion before the index inclusion.
We have been macro-bullish on the perspective that it’s very difficult for the RBI to hike because inflation is going to be on the lower side. The only spoiler has been global yields and oil. Global yields are near its peak, and we don’t expect the Fed to hike rates further.
Oil prices remain a wildcard. With Crude prices spiking to US$95, markets are likely to bake in some degree of pessimism into the Indian bond markets.
However, the two aspects could negate each other over the medium term. Finally, the inclusion by JP Morgan could be a precursor for other global index providers to add domestic bonds to global indices, amplifying the impact of flows. And hence the positive bond story is likely to continue for a while.
Markets have been a buzz on possible inclusions, the confirmation saw markets react positively across the yield curve with long bonds seeing heightened trading activity. The 10 benchmark 10-year G-Sec stood at 7.10%1 at the time of writing this note.

Stock Market Live Updates: JP Morgan’s inclusion of India in emerging market index to benefit economy and stocks
V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
“JP Morgan’s inclusion of India in the Emerging Market Index is a very positive move from the perspective of the Indian economy in general and the capital market in particular. The foreign demand for GoI bonds will push down their yields. This will happen much earlier than the date for inclusion, which is June 2024. Most of the corporate bonds yields are benchmarked to the yields on government bonds. Therefore, yields will decline pan India, across industries. The decline in the cost of capital will translate into higher profits for the corporate sector, which, in turn, will boost stock prices enabling the stock market to scale higher levels.”

Stock Market Live Updates: IDFC First Bank on India Bond Index inclusion and its impact on USDINR
Again, the announcement would aid sentiment on the INR in FY24, which has been under pressure due to rise in crude oil prices and dollar strength. We revised down USDINR trading range to 81.50 to 83.50 for the remainder of FY24 (from 82 to 84 previously).
The real impact will be in FY25 when actual inflows come. We estimate FY25 CAD as 2% of GDP or US$81bn. Net FDI inflows is assumed to be US$28bn and hence the basic balance (CAD + FDI) would be US$53bn deficit. JP Morgan Index related inflows would be ~US$18.9bn in FY25, which accounts for around 36% of the basic balance deficit. In case index inclusion into Bloomberg Bond Index takes place than Index related inflows would account for 64% of Basic Balance deficit. Hence FY25 Balance of Payments is likely to be in surplus and it could be significant if India gets included not just in JP Morgan index but Bloomberg Global Aggregate Index also.

Stock Market Live Updates: IDFC First Bank on India Bond Index inclusion and its impact on G-sec yields
Impact on G-sec yields
The anticipation of Index inclusion has already driven 10-yr g-sec yields to 7.14% levels yesterday and in the remainder of FY24 we could see yields moving towards 7.0% due to announcement impact. Moreover, the supply dynamics are better in H2 with lesser g-sec supply. In case inclusion into Bloomberg Global Aggregate Index is also announced then 10-yr yield could fall below 7.0% by March 2024.
The real impact on g-sec yields will be felt in FY25, when FPI inflows related to JPM GBI EM will start. As mentioned above US$23.6bn of FPI inflows are expected over July 2024 to May 2025. Net G-sec supply in FY25 is likely to be INR12tn, assuming central government fiscal deficit of 5.5% of GDP. Long-only players – pensions, insurance and PFs have been prominent players in fixed income market as the share of formal sector rises in the economy. Indeed, in FY23, investor’s net purchased INR4.4tn, which is estimated to rise to INR4.9tn in FY25. Banks which are the largest holder of g-secs (at 36.6% of outstanding G-secs as of March 2023), are another source of demand which will hold-up in FY25. Two factors will support demand from banks – NDTL growth and rate cut expectations. In FY23 banks net bought INR4.7tn of g-secs, could rise to INR4.8tn in FY25. JP Morgan index related FPI inflows could take-up INR1.6tn in FY25. Total demand from these three segments alone - banks, investors and index related flows, would account for more than 90% net supply in FY25. Hence demand for g-sec could exceed supply by INR900bn next year.
In case inclusion in Bloomberg Bond Index takes place then additional FPI inflows into FAR g-secs of INR1.2tn could come which would further widen the gap between demand of g-sec and supply.

Stock Market Live Updates: IDFC First Bank on India Bond Index inclusion
JP Morgan to include India in its Government Bond Index – Emerging Markets starting June 28 2024. India will be included GBI EM Global Diversified Index (GBI EM GD) which has an funds with AUM of US$213bn benchmarked to it. India will get a weight of 10% which will be added from next year, 1% will be added per month (June 28 2024 to March 31 2025). India is also expected to enter other JP Morgan bond indexes - JADE Global Diversified index, JESG GBI-EM index and other aggregate suite of local currency indexes. The AUM of funds tracking JP Morgan GBI-EM family of indices are US$236bn. The index inclusion could result in inflows of US$23.6bn into FAR g-secs starting from next year and completed by April / May 2025. FPI holdings of outstanding g-sec could rise to 3.4% by April / May 2025 v/s 1.7% in September 2024.
Post the inclusion into JP Morgan EM Bond Index, India’s chances of Inclusion into Bloomberg Global Aggregate Index also rises. In case India is included in the Bloomberg Global Aggregate Index, it could result in inflows of US$15bn to US$20bn with India’s weight ranging from 0.6% to 0.8%. Given the relatively small weight, India’s inclusion could take place in one go, in case index inclusion takes place. Moreover, in BGAI country’s weight will continue to rise as market capitalization of FAR securities rises.

Post listing view of Samhi Hotels and Zaggle Prepaid from Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth, Swastika Investmart Ltd
Zaggle Prepaid made its debut on the stock markets today by listing at Rs 164 per share, which is exactly a flat listing considering its issue price of Rs 164.
Zaggle is a uniquely positioned player in the fintech industry, but it has a major dependency on third parties and has faced negative cash flow and a decline in its profitability in recent years. The IPO valuation was also high. Investors should exit their positions, but those who want to hold for some gain should maintain a stop loss at 148.
Another listing was of Samhi Hotels at Rs. 134.5 per share, a premium of 6.7% to its IPO price of Rs. 126.
On the one hand, the company is loss-making, and its financial performance has been poor for the last three years. On the other hand, the company is making progress on cutting losses, and the sales multiple is 3.7x, which is below the industry average. Investors should book profit and exit their position, and those who still want to hold should maintain a stop loss at the listing price.

Trade View: India included in JP Morgan EM Bond Index
Earlier today, JP Morgan announced to include India’s sovereign bonds to its Global EM Index and the index suite. The inclusion will take place on 28th June 2024 and will be staggered over a period of 10 months. India’s weightage is set to increase to a maximum of 10% in GBI-EM Global Diversified and ~8.7% in the GBI-EM Global index.
Going by market estimates, the inclusion could lead to passive inflows as index tracking funds increase their holdings in Indian bonds. According to estimates this could be anywhere between $25-30 bn in the first year. As of now, 23 bonds worth a notional value of $330bn are eligible to be added in the index in a staggered way over 10 months – 10% of this (maximum weightage) could therefore lead to close to $30 bn passive inflows.

Weak demand scenario for tiles could drive softer volume growth
Channel checks by JM Financial Institutional Securities suggest that a weak demand scenario for tiles could drive softer volume growth for leading tile companies in 2QFY24, though volume will increase 5-6% QoQ. It believes tile volume growth will pick up from 3QFY24 as leading construction-related categories (wires, plumbing pipes, etc.) indicate reasonable strength in construction activity, and tile demand comes with a lag of 1-2 quarters.
Gas prices, on the other hand, remain steady, leading to stable/marginal increase in gas cost QoQ for Kajaria/ Somany, though it will decline substantially YoY. While the near-term remains challenging, JM Financial analysts are still optimistic on demand recovery in 2HFY24. Maintains BUY on Kajaria (KJC) and Somany Ceramics (SOMC) and maintains HOLD on Cera Sanitaryware.

India’s inclusion in JP Morgan bond indices to boost foreign flows
The inclusion of Indian bonds in JP Morgan’s emerging-market index is expected to attract foreign investments, and help bolster the Indian currency, according to market watchers.
JPM Government Bond Index-EM Global diversified Index has assets under management of about $200 billion. A 10 per cent weightage on the index will mean that about $20 billion dollar will flow into these bonds.
“India’s inclusion in the global bond index is a pivotal step towards international recognition and access to vital capital for growth. This move promises increased demand for the Indian rupee, potentially buffering against depreciation. Lower borrowing costs can fuel essential infrastructure projects, while heightened liquidity may foster more efficient trading conditions,” said Suresh Swamy, partner, Price Waterhouse & Co.

Stock Market Live Updates: Mukesh Kochar, National Head - Wealth, AUM Capital’s view on JPMorgan adding India to emerging market bond index
This is great news and one of the long-awaited one by the market. This JP Morgan index is 240 bln USD. India will be 10% of it which means 24 bln USD which is huge. This will reset the base rate for India and the yield should come down sharply. India’s cost of borrowing will come down. Since covid, the fiscal deficit in India has remained elevated due to higher borrowing. This event will ease borrowing pressure as a large part of the borrowing will be observed by this route. Banks Treasury will be flushed with mark-to-market gains. At the same time, it is a big positive for our currency as a big dollar flow will be there due to the buying of gsec. As far as the equity market is concerned it is positive for Banks, NBFC, leveraged companies etc By and large it is a big macro positive for India.

Stock Market Live Updates: Fed’s hawkish pause dampens global equities, but JP Morgan’s India bond inclusion offers hope
Morning view on the market from Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
“The Fed’s hawkish pause message has created a global risk-averse sentiment in global equity markets. The spike in the dollar index to 105.52 and the US 10-year bond yield shooting up to a 16-year high of 4.5 % are negative for equity markets, particularly emerging markets. The FIIs have reversed their ‘Buy India strategy’ which they have been following in the last 3 months with selling to the tune of Rs 16934 crores in September through 21st.
Countering this negative trend is the hugely positive news of JP Morgan including India in the Emerging Market Bond Index with a weightage of 10% from June 2024 onwards. This will reduce bond yields and the consequent decline in the cost of borrowing will boost the bottom line of companies.
In the near-term, FIIs may press further selling in response to rising US bond yields. If this happens it will open up opportunities for investors to buy quality large-caps, particularly banking stocks which will benefit a lot from the bond inclusion.”

Stock Market Live Updates: JP Morgan’s Inclusion of India in GBI-EM Index set for June 2024: Analyst insights
Madhavi Arora, Economist at Emkay Global Financial
The much-anticipated inclusion of India in JP Morgan GBI-EM index will be effective from 28th Jun’24, accounting for post-announcement operational lags. India’s weight of 10% will be staggered over 10 months, leading to passive inflows of USD22bn (USD26bn accounting for addition in other smaller indices). The actual flows though may be higher, contingent on market dynamics and active flows. Structurally, this will lower India’s risk premia/cost of funding, enhance the liquidity and ownership base of G-Secs and help India finance its fiscal and CAD. This does not immediately pave way for inclusion in FTSE and Bloomberg indexes, which have more stringent conditions (FPI taxation/Euroclear). But it could have a demonstration effect in the medium term as the lower risk premia could trigger positive externalities. Near term, we expect bond yields and INR to reverse gains after the initial euphoria, tracking global markets. However, the trend will again reverse in favour of bonds by end-Mar’24, with 10-yr yield coming off well below 7%. For 2HFY24, we see USD-INR ranging 82.25-84.25, with tactical RBI intervention keeping it middle of EM Asia pack.

Stock Market Live Updates: India’s inclusion on the JP Morgan emerging markets bond index by Rakeshh Mehta chairman of Mehta Equities
“India’s inclusion in JP Morgan emerging markets bond index is great news which would give a booster access to global investors to participate in the world’s fastest-growing large economy that would offer them the highest alpha returns in the emerging region. I believe it is after waiting for 10 odd years India has finally been included in the JP Morgan EM Bond Index today effective 28th June 2024. The credit goes to the Govt of India, regulator as well as various government organisations who made this possible in the current scenario. The news has come at the right time when the market is under pressure and hereafter the possibility of larger FPI flows could be seen ahead of this inclusion. The Rupee would also benefit from this news. We continue to remain optimistic on a great Indian long term story. Equity markets would take this as a welcome note at the right time.”

Stock Market Live Updates: Opening Bell: JPMorgan’s bond index inclusion bring positivity to Sensex and Nifty; bank stocks gain
The Indian stock market, represented by the Sensex and Nifty indices, opened flat to positive. This decline follows the global market’s struggle after the Federal Reserve’s hawkish stance. Analysts anticipate the downward pressure to persist, affecting mid and small-cap sectors that have shown relative resilience.
As of 9:15 am, the BSE Sensex, comprising 30 major stocks, declined by 7.31 points to reach 66,222.93. Simultaneously, the NSE Nifty gained 3.95 points, trading at 19,746.30.
Among the Sensex gainers were SBI, Kotak Bank, IndusInd Bank, Adani Enterprises and Bajaj Finserve. Conversely, Wipro, Apollo Hospitals, HCL Tech, Titan Divis Labs were among the lagging stocks.
Despite the short-term market challenges, India’s inclusion in the JPMorgan Government Bond Index is a positive development for the nation and its markets. JPMorgan recently announced its decision to add Indian securities to the JPMorgan Government Bond Index-Emerging Markets, effective from June 28, 2024, with India carrying a maximum weight of 10% on the index. Analysts at HSBC Global anticipate an inflow of approximately $30 billion into the country, which is expected to stabilize both the bond and equity markets.
However, the equity market may continue to face pressure in the near term, primarily due to Foreign Portfolio Investors (FPIs) selling off shares. FPIs unloaded shares worth over Rs 3,000 crore on Thursday. Market experts believe that this selling trend will persist as the US dollar gains strength, driven by robust economic activity in the United States and the recent decisions by the Federal Reserve.

Stock Market Live Updates: Technicals: Cautious opening likely amidst technical shifts: Nifty support at 19650-19620, resistance at 19850-19880
The Indian market is poised to open cautiously today following significant declines in the previous two sessions. The Nifty index experienced a substantial 1.79 percent drop, while the Bank Nifty index saw an even more pronounced decline of 3 percent over the course of the week. Market breadth was skewed on the negative side as some profit booking seen in Midcap and FIIs remained net sellers in the past few days.
Today’s Indian market direction hinges on global factors. Unchanged policy rates from the Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan, along with India’s JP Morgan Bond Index inclusion, will significantly impact investor sentiment and trading trends.
Technically Nifty support remains at 19650-19620 while resistance is placed at 19850-19880 zone.
Sectorally PSU and FMCG could remain in radar for the day.

On his twitter handle
Good news : India to be included in JP Morgan’s global bond index starting June 2024
While global equity flows have been healthy and consistent, flows to our debt markets have been lower compared to equities
Inclusion of India in one of the widely-followed bond indices will attract healthy FII flows to debt markets. This can help in keeping interest rates lower and currency stability

Share Market Live Today: Motilal Oswal on Glenmark divesting stake in GLS: Stake sale to drive considerable de-leverage; earnings neutral event
Glenmark Pharma (GNP) has proposed to divest its API business, Glenmark Lifescience (GLS) with the aim of reducing debt and increasing its emphasis on branded/innovative products.
This is the third transaction by GNP with a cumulative cash generation of INR62.5b over the past 12-15M.
After the stake sale, GNP is set to transition from a net debt position of INR29.5b to a cash surplus INR21b.
The net reduction in overall EBITDA due to the sale of API business (INR5.5b) would be partially offset by a reduction in interest (INR4.2b).
Expecting significant deleveraging and superior execution in both the domestic formulation (DF) and EU/ROW markets, we anticipate an improved outlook for GNP over the next 2-3 years, which should positively impact return ratios to some extent. We value GNP at 14x 12M forward earnings to arrive at a price target of INR780. We maintain our Neutral rating, given that the current valuation adequately captures potential earnings upside/better return ratios.

Stock Market Live Updates: Deepak Shenoy, Founder & CEO, CapitalMind on India’s inclusion in Bond index
Deepak Shenoy, Founder & CEO, CapitalMind on India’s inclusion in Bond index on his microblog site X
Huge! This means by 2025 we should see holdings of 20 billion by international index funds, which is 160,000 cr. That would roughly be 10% of the total issuance of the 21 bonds (if all are added equally)
Of course still tiny for India and less than 3% of our central govt debt. But note that this debt is in rupees: the USD INR risk is on the buyer not the govt
Good first move. It will take years to materialize. We should of course recognise that geopolitics may influence economic changes, as we’ve seen in the Russian oil scene in the past when they put this kind of carrot in front of us. Expect this not to eventually happen and if it does, it’s a nice bonus.

Stock Market Live Updates: Sectoral Watch: Muted domestic demand, strong exports in the Tile industry
HDFC Securities on Tiles: Muted domestic demand; strong exports
We met the management of Orient Bell (OBL). The management highlighted that domestic demand remains muted in Q2 (similar to Q1); however, it expects things to firm up, going ahead, led by robust real estate demand. Exports from Morbi continue to firm up. As many plants have already shut down last year and as exports continue to firm up in Q2FY24, Morbi has not resorted to any shutdown (as it had in the previous years). Tile prices fell MoM in July but have remained stable thereafter. LNG prices bottomed out in June/July and have rebounded a bit in August (still down YoY and QoQ). OBL has an ambitious plan to become one of the top three tile manufacturers in India. It plans to double its marketing spending even at the expense of lower EBITDA margins in the medium term. Its clear focus is on gaining market share and maintaining a healthy balance sheet (net debt will peak at INR 0.5bn). It is adding 3.3MSM GVT capacity in Dora, Gujarat (expected by September-23 end). This plant will increase its GVT mix (higher margin business).
We expect domestic demand to improve from H2FY24 onwards. We also expect the tile export momentum to sustain, which will further help the industry to pass on the cost inflation, leading to margin expansion YoY in FY24E. We maintain our BUY rating on Somany Ceramics (TP of INR 780/sh: 12x FY25E EV/EBITDA, implying 23x FY25PE) and ADD rating on Kajaria Ceramics (TP of INR 1,310/sh: 21x FY25E EV/EBITDA implying 33x FY25 PE).

Stock Market Live Updates: SEBI approves relaxation for large corporates’ debt securities, aims to boost fundraising
Makarand M Joshi, Founder MMJC & Associates - A corporate compliance firm on SEBI approving relaxation in the framework for large corporates for meeting incremental finance needs through issuance of debt securities
“SEBI is spearheading GOI drive of giving push for fund raise via listed debt. It is a subject of national priority.
Though details are yet not released, it seems SEBI has done its bit to listen to corporates and relax some requirements. Now it is a turn of Finmin to come out with more initiatives to incentivise debt securities listing for these large corporates.
One major concern of corporates was to incentives them for doing corporate debt listing as there is cost arbitrage between normal banking channel borrowing and debt listing. Real incentivisation can happen only through FINMIN and GOI.”

Stock Market Live Updates: Wall Street plunges amid Fed’s caution on monetary policy and inflation concerns
On Thursday, Wall Street experienced a significant decline in a widespread sell-off due to concerns that the Federal Reserve might maintain its stringent monetary policies for an extended period.
All three major U.S. stock indices plummeted by over 1%, and the 10-year U.S. Treasury yields reached a 16-year high. This came after Fed Chairman Jerome Powell cautioned that inflation still has a considerable distance to cover before reaching the central bank’s 2% target.
Specifically, the Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped by 370.46 points (1.08%) to 34,070.42, the S&P 500 shed 72.2 points (1.64%) to 4,330, and the Nasdaq Composite declined by 245.14 points (1.82%) to 13,223.99.
