SGX Nifty Trades Flat, Maruti Suzuki Acquires Stake in AI Firm, Zomato Q4 Results, and Top Buzzing Stocks Today
Tue, 24 May Pre-Open

On Monday, Indian share markets failed to keep up early gains and ended marginally lower.

Benchmark indices erased all the intraday gains and ended in the red as metal stocks came under pressure.

At the closing bell on Monday, the BSE Sensex ended 38 points or 0.1% lower.

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty was down by 51 points, ending at 16,215.

Maruti Suzuki, M&M, and HUL were among the top gainers.

Tata Steel, Ultratech Cement, and ITC were among the top losers.

Tata Steel share prices slumped over 12% and hit a 52-week low in yesterday's trade. Here's why...

The broader markets ended on a weak note as the BSE Mid Cap index slipped 0.3% while the BSE Small Cap index plunged 0.6%.

Among sectoral indices, stocks in the metal sector and pharma sector witnessed most of the selling. While stocks in the auto sector and IT sector witnessed buying.

Shares of ESAB India and Ratnamani Metals hit their 52-week high.

EXPOSED: The Shocking Truth Behind Today's Hottest Investment Opportunity

'Expectation of a rate hike is a no-brainer' - RBI Governor

The governor indicated that the central bank would continue to raise interest rates in coordinated moves with the government's fiscal measures to tame inflation.

The central bank wants to remove the overhang of liquidity in the system over two to three years.

The governor's latest comments come after the government cut the excise duty cut on petrol by Rs 8 per liter and diesel by Rs 6 per liter last week.

According to economists this will lead to a revenue loss of close to Rs 1 tn in the current fiscal and will further widen the nation's fiscal deficit, requiring additional market borrowing.

The required borrowing will pull out excess money supply from the economy and will help control inflation.

For most companies, a rise in interest rate leads to downward pressure on margins, but these 4 companies stand to win big as rates rise.

Aether Industries IPO

Aether Industries' initial public offering will open for subscription today and will be available for public subscription till 26 May.

A price band of Rs 610 to Rs 642 per equity share at a face value of Rs 10 each has been fixed. The bid lot is 23 equity shares and in multiples thereof.

The IPO includes a fresh issue of Rs 6.3 bn and an offer for sale of up to 2.8 m shares by promoter Purnima Ashwin Desai.

The proceeds of the issue will be utilized for funding capital expenditure requirements for the proposed Greenfield project, prepayment of certain outstanding borrowings, and funding working capital requirements.

Ahead of the public offer, Aether has garnered over Rs 2.4 bn from anchor investors from about 25 investors including Goldman Sachs, Nomura, and SBI Mutual Fund among others.

What response does the IPO get from the public after the dismal listing of Life Insurance Corporation remains to be seen.

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