India's Revival: A Once-in-a-Generation Wealth Making Opportunity

In news from the IT sector, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) was among the top buzzing stocks today.

India's largest IT services player on Monday reported a strong set of numbers for its fourth quarter of FY21.

TCS reported a 6.3% sequential growth in March quarter, consolidated profit at Rs 92.5 billion, driven by better-than-expected growth in revenue and operating income.

Revenue was up by 5.9% year-on-year and 4.2% quarter-on-quarter at Rs 43.7 billion compared to the previous quarter backed by ramp-up of large deals, cross-currency tailwind and recovery in demand.

The revenue in dollar terms grew by 5% sequentially to US$ 5,989 million in the quarter ended March 2021, against 5.1% growth seen in previous quarter.

The company's earnings have benefitted from the surge in demand for digital services such as migration to cloud over the past 12 months triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Note that TCS' order book at US$ 9.2 billion in Q4FY21 was the highest ever total contract value (TCV) in a quarter, taking the total yearly order book at US$ 31.6 billion, a 17.1% growth compared to previous financial year.

The company also declared a final dividend of Rs 15 per share.

TCS share price ended the day down by 4.2%.

Moving on to the news from oil and gas sector...

India has emerged as the top buyer of US crude oil in first quarter of 2021. In FY21, Indian refiners were the second largest buyer of US crude oil, snapping up 2.9 lakh barrels per day which was 26% more than FY20.

India is world's third largest oil consumer and imports 85% of oil needs from other countries.

Currently, India is looking at alternate sources of crude amidst a spat with Saudi Arabia, the world's largest producer.

As Saudi Arabia staved off India's request to boost production to cool prices, Indian refiners replaced some of the Saudi volumes with US cargoes

This reflected in a marked change in crude sourcing with India becoming the biggest buyer of US crude, importing an average of 4.2 lakh barrels per day of US crude between January and March. This was more than the volumes bought by South Korea at 3.1 lakh barrels per day and China with 3 lakh barrels per day, industry data showed.

As part of its crude sourcing diversification strategy, Indian refiners have recently bought crude from new producers such as Guyana.

Note that Iraq is India's top supplier of crude. In the past, middle east has been the favourite crude sourcing destination for Indian refiners because of close proximity and lower freight rates.

We will keep you updated on the latest developments from this space. Stay tuned.

Speaking of crude oil, note that there has been a big geopolitical development recently that you as an astute trader should know about.

The Indian government has decided to reduce the country's dependence on crude oil imports from Saudi Arabia.

This has big implications for the economy in the long-term but what about the short-term? Should we change the way we trade crude oil?

India's #1 trader Vijay Bhambwani answers these questions in one of his videos for Fast Profits Daily.
