Sensex Ends Day in Green, Stressed Stocks in Focus, and Top Stocks in Action
Tue, 5 Feb Pre-Open | Monish Vora, TM Team

On Monday, share markets in India opened on a negative note and ended the day in green after an volatile day of trading.

The BSE Sensex closed higher by 113 points to end the day at 36,583. While the broader NSE Nifty ended up by 19 points, to end the day at 10,912 points.

Among BSE sectoral indices, energy stocks rose the most by 2.2%, followed by consumer durables stocks at 0.8%. Reliance Industries Ltd and ONGC were among the top gainers.

Top Stocks in Action Today

DHFL share price will be in focus as with DHFL group companies' debt mess coming under lens, global brokerage Credit Suisse warned that it could trigger a second wave of risk aversion in India's debt mutual fund industry.

A report from the global brokerage stated that DHFL is among the largest borrowers from mutual funds and the aggregate exposure of debt mutual funds to the home financier's securities is Rs 85 billion.

This amounts to about 0.7% of debt mutual funds' assets under management (AUM) as of December 2018.

Furthermore, the exposure for some fund houses is larger, at 2-10% of total debt AUM, with some schemes having up to 30% of their AUM invested in Dewan securities.

Tata Motors share price is likely to be in focus today as the company has reported 8% decline in total domestic sales at 54,915 units in the month of January 2019.

Tata Motors sold 59,441 units in the domestic market in January 2018.

Company's domestic sales of passenger vehicles witnessed a drop of 11%, at 17,826 units in January 2019, as compared with 20,055 units sold same month last year.

Foreign Investors Pour in After Interim Budget

Taking cues from the budget announcements last week, foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) bought Rs 13.2 billion worth of domestic stocks on Friday, data available with NSE suggested.

On the other hand, domestic institutional investors (DIIs) were net sellers to the tune of Rs 50 million.

Speaking of FII data, note that 2018 was a turbulent year for the Indian stock markets. Foreign investors dumped Indian equities worth Rs 33,014 crore and debt instruments worth Rs 47,795 crore. In fact, they have continued to be net sellers in Indian stocks even in 2019. So far in January 2019, they have sold equities worth Rs 2,675 crore.

Had it not been for the solid participation from domestic investors, the Indian markets would have witnessed a much steeper fall.

Ankit Shah shares an interesting observation in the rapid growth of MF Industry.

Here's what he wrote in one of the editions of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • Ten years ago, the total assets under management (AUM of the Indian mutual fund industry were Rs 4.13 trillion (1 trillion equals 1 lakh crore) as on 31 December 2008.

    Over the subsequent five years, the industry grew at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15% to take the total AUM to Rs 8.2 trillion as on 31 December 2013.

    Thereafter, the Indian mutual fund industry took off like never before, compounding at 23% CAGR, and taking the total AUM as on 31 December 2018 to Rs 22.86 trillion.

    In just 10 years, the AUM of the Indian MF Industry has multiplied 5.5 times, compounding at 19% CAGR.

    The total number of mutual fund folios as on 31 December 2018 stood at 8.03 crore (80.3 million).

Also, speaking of the budget announcement on Friday, to help you gain more insight into interim budget proposals, we have research analyst, Sarvajeet Bodas talk about everything you need to know about the interim budget in our latest episode of Indian Stock Market Podcast.
