Sensex Trades Marginally Lower; Bajaj Finserv, Britannia & Tech Mahindra Top Losers

Asian share markets are lower today following Wall Street falls and as bond yields struck a two-decade high on fears aggressive US interest rate hikes would push the economy into a recession.

The Nikkei plunged 1.7% while the Shanghai Composite declined 1.6%. The Hang Seng is down 0.6%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street indices nosedived on Monday, with the S&P 500 confirming it is in a bear market.

Fears added that the expected aggressive interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve could push the economy into a recession.

The Dow Jones plunged 2.8% while the tech heavy Nasdaq slumped 4.7%.

Back home, Indian share markets are trading on a flat note.

Benchmark indices opened lower tracking the trend on SGX Nifty and following weak global sentiment. However, losses were somewhat erased as recent inflation data soothed nerves.

Retail inflation eased to 7.04% in May, mainly on account of softening food and fuel prices as the government as well as the RBI stepped in to control the price rise.

Now, all eyes are on India's wholesale price index (WPI) numbers.

The BSE Sensex is trading down by 57 points. Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty is trading lower by 22 points.

Power Grid and NTPC are among the top gainers today. Asian Paints, on the other hand, is among the top losers today.

The BSE Mid Cap index is up 0.1%. The BSE Small Cap index is trading higher by 0.3%.

Moving on to news from the automobile sector, Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) is among the top buzzing stocks today.

M&M is seeking approval from the National Company Law Tribunal for a merger of Mahindra Electric Mobility (MEML) to itself.

Seeking the tribunal's approval for the merger, India's leading utility vehicle maker explained that the value chain required for end-to-end electric vehicle (EV) development, manufacturing and sales is currently spread between M&M and MEML and it needs to be consolidated.

The Mahindra group said this merger will bring this entire value chain under one umbrella driving a sharper focus for smooth and efficient management of the value chain requirements.

The company also informed the tribunal that as of 31 October 2021, Mahindra Electric Mobility had about 846 unsecured creditors with a collective value of Rs 4.9 bn and M&M has 43,596 unsecured creditors with a combined value of Rs 165.4 bn.
