COMMENT Abhijeet Dey, Senior Fund Manager – Equities, BNP Paribas Mutual Fund In the absence of any strong cues, stock markets in India traded on a lacklustre note today. Risk appetite in the global markets abated after US President Donald Trump gave a fillip to trade tensions by imposing a 25% tariff on a list of 818 items of Chinese goods worth around $34 billion. Beijing immediately responded with its own set of tariffs on US goods, making this a game of one up-manship. Benchmark indices traded weak to finally close the day marginally in the red. Sectoral performance on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) was mixed. While the auto, healthcare and private banking indices eked out marginal gains, the metals and IT indices lost 1.78% and 0.77%, respectively

BofA on electical utility companies In a move to prevent liquidation of stressed thermal power plants, the Finance Ministry has proposed the idea of an asset reconstruction company (ARC) or a ‘Bad Bank’ – that would take-over stressed assets from banks (after a haircut), manage the projects in the interim & sell it off when power cycle recovers. The idea of a ‘Bad Bank’ is not new & makes sense if it reduces the quantum of haircut that banks may have had to take in case the assets were liquidated/ referred to National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT). The power ministry has identified 40-45GW of stressed projects vs. BofAMLe of 81GW in time, these projects may be transferred to ARC. Regardless of whether stressed assets go to NCLT or ARC, the current scenario is likely to consolidate the powergen sector & present inorganic growth opportunities for NTPC. Buy.
