Oil Prices at Two Year High

Crude oil has been witnessing buying interest lately after it was reported that the Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) has significantly improved compliance with its pledged supply cuts and Russia is also seen keeping to the deal.

The oil price has hit its highest level since July 2015 after Saudi Arabia's crown prince increased his power in the kingdom by launching an anti-corruption purge. Also, Saudi Arabia's Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih said that the focus remained on reducing oil stocks in industrialized countries to their five-year average. He also raised the prospect of prolonged output restraint once an OPEC-led supply-cutting pact ends.

Rising oil prices do not bode well for the Indian economy. This we say is because India is hugely dependent on petroleum imports. India is the world's third-largest oil consumer. And energy consumption in India is set to grow as our economy remains one of the few 'bright spots' in a slowing, aging world economy. And India could face a potent risk with a rise in crude oil prices.

Global Indices Upbeat

Global financial markets showed no signs of slowing down and continued to rally. Japanese shares scaled a 26-year high on Tuesday on expectations of strong earnings from Japanese companies. European shares too were trading in green. Market participants in the US are focused on the progress of a U.S. tax-cut plan being developed by President Donald Trump. Tax negotiators in the U.S. House of Representatives seek to overcome their differences this week and work on a plan, aiming for their self-imposed deadline of passage this month.

IPO Buzz

HDFC Standard Life Insurance Company's initial public offer (IPO) was subscribed by 40% day one of the offer, according to data available on the bourses as of the market close.

The life insurer's IPO will remain open till November 9. Prior to opening its offer to the public, HDFC Life raised Rs 23.2 billion from anchor investors through allocation of 80.6 million equity shares at Rs 290 per share, the upper end of the price band.

It would be the third life insurance company getting listed on bourses; and is the first initial public offering by a company promoted by HDFC, since the initial public offering of HDFC Bank in 1995.

HDFC Life is the first private life insurance company to register in India and was established in 2000 as a joint venture between HDFC Limited and Standard Life Aberdeen plc through its wholly owned subsidiary, Standard Life Mauritius.

It has set a price band of Rs 275-290 and seeks to raise up to Rs 86.95 billion.

But do the company's fundamentals justify the price it is asking for in the primary market? We have released an IPO note, with our recommendation for the HDFC Life IPO, you can access it here.

IPOs are all the rage in the share markets these days. With new companies listing by the day, all with promises of superior returns.

However, we don't need thousands of IPOs to get rich. That's not how super investors make their fortunes. But a few good IPOs could certainly become the multibaggers in your portfolio in a few years.

We have reviewed each of them and have released their recommendation notes. You can check the same on their IPO page.
