  • Initially trailing behind their Asian counterparts, the domestic benchmarks swiftly regained momentum throughout the trading day.
  • Notable sectoral movements included a 1% rise in both bank and metal indices, while the FMCG index climbed by 0.5%. Conversely, healthcare, IT, power, and realty sectors experienced declines ranging from 0.3% to 0.6%.
  • Meanwhile, the BSE midcap index dipped by 0.4%, while the smallcap index remained unchanged.

Global Markets:

  • Asian stocks faced a downturn after reports from NBC News, citing a source familiar with the situation, indicated that Israel conducted a limited strike in Iran. This development triggered a sell-off in stocks and other risk assets, driving investors towards safe-haven assets.
  • Japan’s Nikkei 225 declined by 2.66%, although it managed to recover some of its earlier losses, while the broader Topix index fell by 1.91%. Over the week, the Nikkei recorded a loss of 3.65%.
  • South Korea’s Kospi index retreated by 1.63%, accompanied by a 1.61% decline in the small-cap Kosdaq.

Stocks in Spotlight

  • Tata Communications witnessed a sharp decline of over 5% for the eighth consecutive session, with brokerages citing limited upside potential following disappointing earnings in the March quarter. The company’s net profit saw a decline of 1.5% to Rs 321.2 crore, despite a 24.6% increase in revenue to Rs 5,691.7 crore. However, the EBITDA margin dropped to 18.6% from 22.6% compared to the previous year.
  • Despite Bajaj Auto’s Q4 results surpassing street expectations, its stock experienced a 2% decline. The fall was attributed to the company’s share price exceeding brokerages’ target prices and being perceived as overvalued. Brokerages issued ‘sell’ calls, setting target prices below the current value, indicating that positive factors were already factored into the stock’s price.
  • ITC shares saw a modest increase of over 1% following the announcement of ITC Infotech’s acquisition of a 100% stake in Pune-based IT company, Blazeclan Technologies Private Limited, for Rs 485 crore. This strategic acquisition aims to enhance ITC Infotech’s capabilities in serving customers within multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments, with a focus on leveraging the partner ecosystem to drive future growth.
