SAIL and Coal India Q1 Results

SAIL: State-owned SAIL on Wednesday posted a 79% fall in its consolidated net profit to Rs 8 bn during the June quarter dragged by higher expenses.

It had clocked Rs 39 bn in the April-June period of 2021-22 fiscal, Steel Authority of India (SAIL) said in a regulatory filing.

Its expenses grew to Rs 232.9 bn as against Rs 156 bn a year ago.

The company, in a separate statement, said its crude steel output was at 4.33 million tonne (MT), up from 3.77 MT in same quarter of the preceding financial year.

Coal India: Coal India on Wednesday said its consolidated net profit shot up 178% to Rs 88.3 bn for the quarter under review.

The miner posted a net profit of Rs 31.7 bn in the same quarter last year.

The company was successful in keeping the total expenses at Rs 239.9 bn amid higher production and despatches during the quarter versus Rs 216.3 bn in the June quarter last year.

The cost of materials consumed rose to Rs 30.6 bn in the quarter under review from Rs 18.4 bn in the year-ago period.

Coal India accounts for about 80% of domestic coal output, having a monopoly in its field. The company was aiming at 700 million tonne of production this fiscal and one billion tonne by 2023-24.

Inflation Cools Down

Overnight, Wall Street's main indexes rose more than 1% after data showing a slower-than-expected rise in inflation in July prompted traders to cut their bets on another super-sized rate hike by the US Federal Reserve.

US consumer prices were unchanged in July due to a sharp drop in the cost of gasoline, delivering the first notable sign of relief for weary Americans who have watched prices climb over the past two years.

Traders are now pricing in a 41.5% chance of a 75-basis-point increase in fund rates at the Fed's next meeting in September, compared with 67.5% before the data.

ED Probing Crypto Exchanges

As per reports, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is probing at least ten cryptocurrency exchanges for allegedly laundering more than Rs 10 bn identified as proceeds of crime of the accused firms under investigation in the instant loan app case most of them having a China link.

The probe has unearthed instances of the accused firms approaching the exchanges to buy crypto coins for more than Rs 1 bn and crypto coins being sent to international wallets.

The exchanges did not conduct any enhanced due diligence and even failed to raise suspicious transaction reports (STRs).

The ED is also closely monitoring the recent public row between WazirX CEO Nischal Shetty and Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao on social media.

This is done especially on issues related to ownership and non-compliance by the exchange after the recent ED searches and statement which mentioned that the exchange has an opaque nature of ownership.

Short-term Pressure on Metal Stocks

According to experts, mining and metal stocks may come under pressure in the coming quarters owing to weakening prices. With Chinese steelmakers flooding the global market, experts are of the view that prices will fall.

Global brokerage firm Nomura said Indian steel mills cut HRC (hot rolled coil) prices for August by Rs 3,500 per tonne to Rs 58,500 from the previous month and CRC (cold rolled coil) by Rs 2,500 per tonne to Rs 66,000.

The government in May had slapped an export duty of 15% on various steel products and imposed a 45% duty on iron ore pellets to rein in the prices.

Metal prices have fallen a lot lately which begs the question: should you hold on to metal stocks or sell them?
