Top Stocks in Focus Today

From the aviation sector, IndiGo share price will be in focus today as the company's co-founder Rahul Bhatia and his IGE Group yesterday submitted a request for arbitration in the London Court of International Arbitration against partner Rakesh Gangwal on issues of compliance with the shareholders' agreement and articles of association in the company.

Federal Bank share price will be in focus today as the lender has entered into a tie-up with Speed Money Transfer Japan KK (SMTJ), a financial services company, to facilitate instant money transfer from Japan to India.

Meanwhile, Bank of Baroda has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indian Army under which the bank would offer customized services along with a host of facilities to account holders.

Market participants will also track Coal India share price. The company has reported fall in its production by 23.5% to 30.8 million tonnes in September. The production in the same month a year ago stood at 40.3 million tonnes.

The Yes Bank Saga

Yes Bank share price will be in focus today. The stock of the lender witnessed buying interest yesterday as investors thought the promoter share sale overhang on the stock is over.

Buying interest was also seen as the private lender clarified in a BSE filing that the material drop in its share prices on October 01, 2019 was primarily on account of the forced sale of 10 crores equity shares (3.92% of the Bank's equity share capital) triggered by an invocation of pledge on the equity shares of a large stakeholder.

Further, the bank said that it would like to confirm that it's financial and operating metrics remain intrinsically sound and stable with liquidity position well in excess of regulatory requirements.

Note that the stock of the lender slumped as much as 23% on Tuesday on account of forced sale of 10 crore equity shares, representing 3.9% of the bank's equity share capital.

The bank said a large stakeholder invoked shares pledged with it, following which the entire pledge stood extinguished.

Shares of the bank also tumbled 15% on amid concerns over its exposure to Indiabulls Housing Finance. And on Tuesday, the stock lost 29.9% intraday. It closed at Rs 32 on the BSE, making it the worst hit.

The stock was down for the fifth consecutive session on Tuesday, with Rs 48.3 billion worth of market cap eroded during the period.

Following the recent invocation of pledged shares by lenders and offloading of stake by various promoter entities, co-promoter Rana Kapoor's stake in the bank has slipped below 1%.

The stock price YES Bank has been under pressure ever since the RBI curtailed its promoter-chief executive Kapoor's term on corporate governance concerns. Many of the bank's past lending bets under Kapoor are haunting the earnings now and keeping the share prices depressed.

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on all the developments from this space. Stay tuned.

Global Stock Market Drivers

Asian stocks tumbled to a one-month low on Thursday as already-growing market fears about global growth were fanned by the United State announcement of new import tariffs on products from the European Union.

Japan's Nikkei closed down by 2%, its biggest one-day decline since August 26.

On Wednesday, there was an escalation of the trade dispute between Washington and the European Union as President Donald Trump's administration announced it would impose tariffs on US$ 7.5 billion of goods.

Washington will enact 10% tariffs on Airbus planes and 25% duties on French wine, Scotch and Irish whiskies and cheese from across the continent.

Most Asian currencies edged up as weak US economic data renewed hopes that the Federal Reserve will resume making rates cuts to prop up growth rate in the United States.

As per the economic schedule released by Vijay Bhambwani, here are the important events which are due later today:

  • Australia - Retail Sales August
  • India - Services PMI September
  • USA - Unemployment Rate September
