India's GDP data: Investors are awaiting GDP data for the March quarter which is due for release tomorrow.

Early monsoon: According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), southwest monsoon has set in over Kerala on Sunday, three days ahead of its normal onset date of 1 June.

Bargain Hunting in heavyweights: The trading session witnessed solid bargain hunting in bluechip stock. Stocks like the HDFC duo, IT majors Infosys and TCS, and Reliance Industries alone contributed over 50% to the rally in the benchmark indices.

Bargain hunting coupled with a recent fall in the rupee boosted IT shares that generate a major chunk of their revenues from exports.

Following the help from the government, Vodafone Idea has been in the search for investors to raise fresh capital to pay down its debt and invest in its network after returning from the brink of bankruptcy.

While reporting the Q4 results, the company showed signs of revival as it added more than 1 m new 4G subscribers while its consolidated operating profits grew 22% aided by recent tariff hikes.

As per a report, Amazon may be interested in investing in Vodafone Idea as it remains the only major cloud services giant without a telecom partner while Vodafone Idea is the only telecom operator without investment from a major US tech company.

Over the past two and a half years, US tech giants Facebook, Google, and Microsoft have invested in the top two telecom operators in the country - Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel to strengthen their cloud offerings in India.

Vodafone Idea share price ended 4.1% higher on the BSE today.

Moving on to stock specific news, Nykaa is set to continue expanding its physical presence, founder Falguni Nayar said.

Though Nykaa's earnings were not as expected, Nayar remained upbeat about the growth of consumer demand in India.

Presenting her views on the financial performance of the parent company of Nykaa, Falguni said:

  • Despite two bouts of COVID, the demand growth wasn't affected a lot. And if we look at the year until March, despite Omicron as well, Nykaa has shown 71% GMV growth and 55% revenue growth.

The company is looking to expand more into physical stores and into new businesses, thus raising questions about the sustainability of its EBITDA.

To this, the founder said that at the underline level, their EBITDA margin is strong; it has come out at a similar level as last year. It is 8% plus for the beauty business and that can improve slightly going forward.

Nykaa share price ended 3.7% higher on the BSE today.
