RBI Meet Outcome

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) said on Monday its board would support small businesses and has extended the timeline for banks to set aside an additional 0.625% as capital conservation buffer by one year to March 31, 2020.

The RBI also decided to form an expert committee to look into whether RBI reserves are adequate.

But the outcome of the meeting to boost lending failed to impress investors as the implementation of the proposed measures will take time.

The Narendra Modi-led government is concerned that low crop prices and difficulties which small businesses face in borrowing may dent its prospects in numerous state elections over coming weeks, and the general election due next year.

According to Moody's Investors Service, the above decision to allow lenders more time to adhere to additional capital buffer norms under Basel 3 is credit negative for the country's state-run banks. Moody's also raised concerns over RBI considering to give banks a leeway in classifying stressed assets of small borrowers which will ease the credit flow to this sector.

Oil Prices Decline

Oil prices fell on Tuesday amid concerns about rising global supplies as OPEC weighs production cuts.

Growing fears of an economic slowdown, which saw European and Asian stock markets tumble again, added further pressure on crude.

Concerned about an emerging production overhang like the one that led to a price slump in 2014, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) is pushing for a supply cut of 1 million to 1.4 million bpd.

Speaking of crude oil, India's crude oil production was lower by 4.2% in September 2018 as compared to last year, as can be seen from the chart below.

The worrying factor is this was the lowest production this year.

Here's what Tanushree Banerjee wrote about it in one of the recent editions of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • Comparing domestic production with the crude oil processed by refineries gives an idea of the demand supply gap. Low domestic production as compared to the demand for crude oil places a huge burden on India's import bill.

    Rising crude oil prices could have severe implications. Rising inflation. Rising interest rates. Pressure on the government to cut excise duty, thereby impacting its revenues.

    We have seen some of this play out. With elections around the corner, expect a lot of subsidies on fuel prices. This is bound to worsen India's fiscal deficit further.

It would be interesting to see how this pans out. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on all the developments from this space.

From the IPO Space...

In the latest development from the IPO space, Zircon Technologies, engaged in the business of label printing for packaging of products, has received market regulator approval to float an initial public offer.

Proceeds of the issue will be utilized for repayment of certain borrowings availed by the company, for setting up of new manufacturing facility at Dehradun, funding the working capital requirements of the firm and general corporate purposes.

With this, the total number of companies getting clearance from the markets regulator to launch IPO has reached 70 so far this year.

Proceeds of the IPO will be used to repay borrowings, fund long-term working capital requirements and for general corporate purposes.

With so many IPOs set to hit the markets, we at Equitymaster believe a merit-based selection, primarily including valuation, business, and management quality, is the logical way to go about investing in IPOs.
