A shadow looms: India needs to stop the IL&FS rot from spreading A tad late, but the message is finally reaching India’s regulators: Infrastructure lender IL&FS is not a business that can be allowed to fail without consequences. An unusual Sunday evening joint statement by the securities regulator and the central bank suggests a much-needed awareness of systemic risks.   Infrastructure Leasing & Financial Services Ltd. is a sprawling nonbank institution that used its highly rated paper to chalk up $12.5 billion of debt, which it funneled into the financing of long-term assets like roads, townships and water-treatment plants. Most of these businesses are owned by IL&FS-linked operating companies. READ MORE

NBFCs are a high-risk bet now; bottom-fishing here is fraught with risks Do non-banking financial companies (NBFCs) and housing finance companies (NFCs) offer good entry points at recent dips post Friday’s free-fall? Well, investors should consider some key points before bottom fishing in these stocks.   Friday’s fall was not on account of systematic crisis or any fundamental concerns on part of these packs, say experts. Liquidity and profitability concerns weighed on these two packs. Thus, asset-liability management (ALM) is critical to understand. READ MORE

IL&FS crisis: Was correction in NBFC stocks overdue, given rich valuations? A sharp decline in share prices of non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) on Friday is forcing some analysts to ask the obvious question: Was the correction overdue, given the sector’s rich valuation despite the steady rise in bond yields, which is set to raise lenders’ cost of funds, adversely affecting their margins? The country's top retail NBFCs are trading at 23.5 times their trailing 12-months earnings nearly 500 basis points higher than the sector's 15-year average price to earnings multiple of 18.4 times.

Analysts see more downside for markets; remain selective on banks & NBFCs Indian equity markets extended their slump for the fifth consecutive session as financial stocks continued to tumble amid the ongoing crisis at IL&FS. The S&P BSE Sensex hit an intra-day low of 36,239 levels, while the Nifty50 touched a low of 10,946 levels.   Analysts say the markets (S&P BSE Sensex is down over 800 points in two sessions) have been caught in a contagion of a sell-off in banking and NBFC segments, which can accentuate further. Moreover, factors such as rate hikes by the US Federal Reserve, crude oil prices, rupee and trade relations between US and China will also have a bearing on the overall sentiment. READ MORE
