Top Stocks in Focus Today

From the energy sector, HPCL share price will be in focus today as the company last week reported strong earnings in March quarter. Shares of the company also hit their 52-week high of Rs 331 last week on the back of a fall in crude oil prices.

HPCL reported 70% year-on-year (YoY) growth in net profit at Rs 29.7 billion in Q4FY19, on account of a better-than-expected performance in the marketing segment.

The state-owned oil marketing company's (OMC) board also recommended final equity dividend of Rs 9.40 per share for the financial year 2018-2019.

To know more about the company, you can read HPCL's latest result analysis on our website.

From the aviation space, Jet Airways share price will be in focus today as the grounded carrier said it won't approve its financial results for FY19. As per an article in The Economic Times, this is due to the ongoing search for a new investor as well as the massive attrition in its board and top management.

Modi 2.0 Cabinet

In the news from the macroeconomic space, it was announced that under the new NDA government Nirmala Sitharaman will be the new Finance Minister as well as Corporate Affairs Minister, while Rajnath Singh would be Defence Minister.

Under Modi 2.0 Cabinet, Amit Shah will become Home Minister while Piyush Goyal will be Commerce and Railway Minister.

Nitin Gadkari holds Road, Transport and Highways Ministery along with MSME, while RK Singh is appointed as Power Minister.

US to Hit Mexico with Export Tariffs

Last week, US President Donald Trump announced tariffs on Mexican imports.

Washington threatened to impose tariffs on imports from Mexico. Trump, in an announcement reported that a 5% tariff would be levied on all goods from Mexico with effect from June 1 and tariffs would remain in place till Mexico takes effective action to alleviate the flow of migrants.

Moreover, the announcement warned that tariffs would go up to 25% by October if Mexico did not take sufficient action.

The above development sent major currencies and crude oil trade on a negative note.

Rupee Continues Downtrend

The rupee witnessed selling pressure last week.

Meanwhile, Trump announcement of tariffs on Mexican imports is expected to keep the rupee's advance in check, the reports noted.

Speaking of currencies, Vijay Bhambwani, editor of Weekly Cash Alerts, tells you the main reasons why not to trade commodities and currencies the same way you would trade equities. Here's an excerpt of what he wrote...

  • Currencies are traded in pairs and the most liquid is the USDINR. Currencies are traded in four decimal points just as bonds are. The international derivative traders association has indicated that forex may be traded in 6 decimals in the coming few years.

    It takes months sometimes for the currency pair to pass the next round figure, say from 70 to 71.

    Can you really trade commodities and currencies alike or for that matter, equities and currencies alike? Definitely not!
