MARKET WRAP: Cong-JD(S) alliance buzz in Karnataka keeps sentiment in check

Market rundown by Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services    "Market has a good start led by positive impression of central ruling government in the Karnataka election. But lost its aura as lack of clear majority emerged by the end of the day. Whatsoever be the final outcome, this will give more depth to the market as concern over the performance of BJP in the next general election of 2019 will reduce. At the same time, market will try to focus back on macro & micro economic parameters which have been unpleasant in the recent time."

NPA provisioning to hit PNB results; to report loss of Rs 27 billion in Q4 Like many public-sector banks (PSBs) that have announced their March 2018 (Q4) results so far, Punjab National Bank (PNB) too is expected to report losses but of a higher magnitude. Besides higher slippages (loans turning bad) due to the Reserve Bank of India’s (RBI) new non-performing assets (NPAs or bad loans) rules and mark-to-market (MTM) provisioning for depreciation in value of government bonds due to higher yields, provisioning for the Rs 135 billion fraud reported in February is expected to have led to the poor performance in Q4.
