Thu, 22 Jul Closing

JSW Steel and Tech Mahindra were among the top gainers today.

The SGX Nifty was trading at 15,820, up by 210 points, at the time of writing.

Both, the BSE MidCap index and the BSE SmallCap index ended up 1.5%.

The Hang Seng and the Shanghai Composite ended the day up by 1.8% and 0.3%, respectively.

The Nikkei ended up by 0.6% in today's session.

US stock futures are trading higher today indicating a positive opening for Wall Street indices with Dow Futures trading up by 85 points (up 0.3%).

Bond Yields: Yields climbed partly due to positive corporate earnings, as investors largely overlooked apprehension about the Delta coronavirus variant and inflation and bought risky assets.

June Quarter Earnings in Line: The June quarter earnings are broadly in line with analysts' estimates.

Asian Paints excellent numbers indicate that there are pockets of business coming out with flying colours in these pandemic times.

The country's largest fast-moving consumer goods company Hindustan Unilever (HUL) today reported 9.6% growth on its net profit at Rs 20.6 bn for the April-June quarter on a year on year (YoY) basis.

In news from the auto sector, Bajaj Auto was among the top buzzing stocks today.

Bajaj Auto's April to June quarter standalone net profit jumped 101.2% year on year (YoY) to Rs 10.6 bn in the first quarter of 2022, on the back of healthy exports and low base of last year.

It had clocked a net profit of Rs 5.3 bn in the previous year period.

Sequentially, the profit slumped 20.3% from Rs 13.3 bn reported in fourth quarter of 2021 as the quarter saw limited economic activity and fewer sales dispatches domestically due to state-specific lockdowns amid the second wave of Covid-19.

On a consolidated basis, the profit after tax (PAT) grew to Rs 11.7 bn from Rs 4 bn YoY but down from Rs 15.5 bn logged in the last quarter of 2021

Separately, the company announced formation of a wholly-owned subsidiary to venture into electric mobility segment.

The company's board of directors at its meeting held today, has approved the incorporation of a wholly owned subsidiary of the company.

The wholly owned subsidiary will leverage the growth opportunities in the evolving mobility space and will help the company venture into the manufacturing of electric and hybrid vehicles in the 2-wheeler, 3-wheeler and light 4-wheeler categories.

Bajaj Auto share price ended the day down by 1.2% on the BSE.

Speaking of electric vehicles, note that the power ministry has approved setting up 2,636 electric vehicle charging stations across 62 cities in 24 states.


Here's what co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Tanushree Banerjee wrote about electric vehicles in one of her editions of Profit Hunter:

  • '106 public and private entities have approached the government for permissions to set up about 7,000 EV charging stations.

    This clearly shows the vehicle manufacturers have enough incentive to capture this latent demand.

    The tax benefit in terms of a lower GST rate (at 5%) is a further shot in the arm of the EV industry.'

As per Tanushree, electric vehicles are very much on their way to invading Indian roads. The threat of disruption in this era is something you cannot ignore.

Moving on to news from the finance sector...
