Sensex Opens Flat Tracking Mixed Global Cues; Titan & ONGC Gain 3%
Wed, 15 Sep 09:30 am

Asian share markets opened lower today as investors sought to lock in profits after recent rallies. The overnight fall on Wall Street also dampened sentiment.

The Hang Seng is down 1%, while the Shanghai Composite is trading up by 0.3%. Japan's Nikkei is down 0.6%.

In US stock markets, Wall Street fell on Tuesday as economic uncertainties and the increasing likelihood of a corporate tax rate hike dampened investor sentiment and prompted a broad sell-off despite signs of easing inflation.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 0.8% while the Nasdaq lost 0.5%.

Back home, Indian share markets have opened on a flat note, following the trend on SGX Nifty.

The BSE Sensex is trading up by 132 points. Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty is trading higher by 34 points.

Titan and Bharti Airtel are among the top gainers today. Axis Bank, on the other hand, is among the top losers today.

The BSE Mid Cap index has opened up by 0.6%. The BSE Small Cap index is trading higher by 0.5%.

Barring banking, all sectoral indices are trading in green with stocks in the telecom sector and consumer durables sector witnessing most of the buying.

Moving on to stock specific news, Vodafone Idea is among the top buzzing stocks today.

As per a leading financial daily, the government is open to picking up a stake in Vodafone Idea by converting a part of the dues the company owes as part of the Centre's efforts to retain investors' confidence.

Here's an excerpt from the article:

    The government may also keep the option of converting more of those dues into equity after four years, subject to conditions.

    A decision could be taken by the Cabinet on Wednesday, but there's no certainty.

As of June 2021, the loss-making telco has total gross debt of Rs 1.92 lakh crore, comprising deferred spectrum payment obligations of Rs 1.06 lakh crore and AGR liability of Rs 621.8 bn that are due to the government and Rs 234 bn to banks and financial institutions.

The quantum of the token stake and whether it would be in the form of equity shares or any other instrument is yet to be decided.

A person aware of the matter said there will be no infusion of funds from the government, only some of the dues which the company owes could be converted into the government's stake.

Note that despite trying for nearly a year, Vodafone Idea has failed to conclude its planned Rs 250-bn fundraising plan.

In June, Aditya Birla group chairman Kumar Mangalam Birla had written to the government that the telco won't survive unless the government provided some relief, and had even offered to give up the group's stake of 27.66% to a state-owned entity.

He resigned as the chairman of the telco in early August and was replaced by Himanshu Kapania.

Markets are expecting that the government will provide some relief in today's meeting. Owing to this, shares of the company had gained 9% yesterday.

Today, Vodafone Idea share price has opened up by 0.8%.

Speaking of Vodafone Idea, note that the company is among the biggest wealth destroyers in the past five years.
