- Domestic equity markets experienced a second consecutive decline on Wednesday.
- The Nifty 50 index retreated from its early high of 20,050.65 to hold the 19,900 level.
- All sectoral indices on the NSE ended in negative territory, with metal, financial services, and bank stocks seeing significant declines.
- The market downturn was fueled by substantial selling in major players like HDFC Bank and Reliance Industries.
- Lackluster global cues were a contributing factor, especially with the upcoming FOMC meeting.
- Other factors causing investor concerns included increasing US bond yields, rising crude oil prices, a weakening rupee, and foreign institutional investors selling.
- Markets in Europe advanced on Wednesday, fueled by a decrease in UK inflation and anticipation for the US Federal Reserves monetary policy decision. UK consumer inflation rose 0.3% in August, but the year-on-year figure unexpectedly fell to 6.7% from 6.8% in July.
- Asian stocks ended on a mixed note as China opted to keep its one-year and five-year loan prime rates unchanged at 3.45% and 4.2% respectively. Traders are awaiting the Bank of Japans monetary policy meeting, hoping for clarity on when the bank will shift its ultra-easy monetary policy. Additionally, the Peoples Bank of China is expected to announce its loan prime rate decisions on Friday.
- US stocks closed lower on Tuesday ahead of the Federal Reserves decision. The Fed began its two-day policy meeting and will reveal its interest rate decision on Thursday. While it is widely anticipated that rates will remain steady, investors will closely analyze the summary of economic projections and Fed chair Jerome Powells press conference for insights into future developments.
Stocks in Spotlight
- Bluestar’s stock surged by 13 percent following the company’s announcement of a qualified institutional placement (QIP) issue aimed at raising funds. The QIP’s floor price is established at Rs 784.55 per share, representing a 2 percent discount from Monday’s closing price of Rs 800.05. The company has the option to provide a discount of up to 5 percent on the floor price. The executive management committee of Bluestar is scheduled to convene on September 22 to deliberate on the final issue price.
- Bharat Petroleum Corporation Limited (BPCL) witnessed a 2.07 percent decline in its shares, closing at Rs 352.9, following a downgrade to “underperform” by Jefferies on September 20. Jefferies has set a target price of Rs 310 per share and anticipates that BPCL may experience an Earnings Before Interest Tax Depreciation and Amortisation (EBITDA) loss in the second half of FY24, primarily due to increased marketing losses in diesel. Consequently, the brokerage firm has reduced BPCL’s EBITDA margin by 22 percent for FY24.
- Union Bank of India’s shares demonstrated resilience, surging nearly 3 percent during intraday trading on September 20, despite broader market declines and a dip in other PSU bank stocks. This positive momentum followed the government’s recent extension of Nitesh Ranjan’s term as executive director of the bank by an additional two years. His current term was originally set to conclude on March 9, 2024, as reported in a BSE filing on September 18. Motilal Oswal, a brokerage firm, has expressed bullish sentiment toward Union Bank of India, issuing a ‘buy’ rating on the stock and setting a target price of Rs 110 in its July 22 research report.
