All that happened in the market's today

SI Reporter  |  New Delhi 

Benchmrk indices ended lower on Thursday, snapping a six-day record-setting rally, as profit-taking hit IT stocks while large state-run lenders slid as they stood to receive less money than expected from a government recapitalisation plan. Bonds also fell, sending the benchmark 10-year yield up 4 basis points to 7.48%, after oil prices rallied on heavy volume, boosted by a record 10th straight weekly decline in US crude inventories. But the rupee strengthened to 63.49 per dollar from its previous close of 63.70, tracking a rally in Asian currencies after US Treasury Secretary ...

Real estate transaction cost needs to be brought down: Abhishek Lodha   Mumbai based Lodha Developers, with estimated sales of Rs 85 billion in 2017-18, over 20 per cent higher than in the previous financial year, is one of the largest real estate players in the country. At a time when India’s residential real estate market is seeing its biggest demand slump since 2010, the company, promoted by lawyer-turned-businessman Mangal Prabahat Lodha, now a sitting Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) member of legislative Assembly (MLA) from the affluent Malabar Hills constituency in South Mumbai, has become a consolidator.

Budget 2018: Betting on stock market boom? Capital gains tax may end party   The taxman may end up being a speed bump for the Indian stock market, which like its counterparts across the world has marched to multiple records in the past year.   Brokerages including Kotak Securities say Prime Minister Narendra Modi's administration may make it harder for investors to claim exemptions on capital gains from equity investments when the federal Budget is announced on February 1. Modi's move in 2016 to scrap high-value currency bills and the implementation of the new sales tax last July have hurt demand and revenue, forcing the government to borrow more. READ MORE

Recap to mitigate PSB risks but NPAs to impact near-term performance: Fitch   The government's Rs 881.39 billion capital infusion in struggling public sector banks should help in part to mitigate risks but resolution of bad assets and continued high credit costs hinder the sector's near-term performance, Fitch Ratings said on Thursday.   While the capital infusion plan was less than half of its estimate of $65 billion needed for the sector, Fitch said yesterday's announcement will encourage banks to resolve their non-performing loan (NPL) stock faster as improved capital buffers bolster their ability to absorb potential large haircuts.

Investing in TCS? Street may be ignoring these three near-term headwinds   The market capitalisation of Tata Consultancy Services is close to the Rs 6-trillion mark, with the company’s stock gaining 46% over its 52-week low of February last year. Half of the gains have come over the past month, and a large part of those after the December quarter results. Given the sharp price rise, the stock is trading at an expensive valuation of 20 times its FY20 estimates. The near-peak valuations are at a 10-14% premium to the target prices of brokerages.   Analysts at Kotak Institutional Equities say that the stock is trading at full valuations even after the recognition of potential cyclical uptick in business. The stock has already reached the peak-cycle multiple, implying about 12% growth for the next 7-8 years. READ MORE

Corporate Affairs Ministry asks ICAI to submit report on bitcoin auditing   The Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has been asked by the ministry of corporate affairs to submit a report on auditing of Bitcoins. ICAI will submit its report by 31st March 2018.   "The study will look into how Bitcoin disclosures can be made in the financial statement," said Debashis Mitra, council member, ICAI, at a seminar on corporate governance, analysing Uday Kotak Committee recommendations and recent changes in Companies (Amendment) Bill, 2017, organised by the CII. The disclosure format will not only be meant for all Bitcoin transactions made this financial year but also set standard for future such transactions.
