Maharashtra approves Mahindra & Mahindra proposal to set up Rs 10,000-cr EV plant in Pune

Mahindra & Mahindra on Thursday said the Maharashtra government has approved its proposal to set up a Rs 10,000-crore electric vehicle plant in Pune under the state’s industrial promotion scheme for EVs. The two sides signed an agreement to this effect at the World Economic Forum in Davos on Wednesday, M&M Ltd said in a statement.
The company, through its subsidiary, will make this investment over a period of 7-8 years for setting up the manufacturing facility, development and production of its upcoming Born Electric Vehicles (BEVs), M&M Ltd said.

Based on the INGLO EV Platform, these models will include the e-SUVs under the iconic brand XUV with the Twin Peak logo in copper and the all-new electric-only brand called ‘BE’.

Some of these BEVs were showcased last August in Oxfordshire, UK.

Euro zone bond yields rise after Lagarde comments

Euro zone government bond yields rose on Thursday as European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde said the ECB would stay the course with rate hikes.
A cooling of inflation on both sides of the Atlantic recently triggered speculation about a slower monetary tightening path, driving bond yields to their lowest levels in over one month.

Germany’s 10-year government bond yield rose 4 bps to 2.03%. It hit on Wednesday lows last seen on December 15, the day of the ECB’s hawkish policy meeting.

ECB will stay the course of rate hikes, says Lagarde

The European Central Bank will continue raising interest rates and leave them in restrictive territory for as long as it takes to bring down inflation to its 2% target, ECB President Christine Lagarde said on Thursday.
“We shall stay the course until such a time when we have moved into restrictive territory for long enough so that we can return inflation to 2% in a timely manner,” she said in a panel discussion during the World Economic Forum.

India regulator probes investments between Nippon Mutual Fund, Yes Bank – sources

An Indian regulator is investigating investments between Nippon India Mutual Fund, the largest foreign-owned fund in the country, and Yes Bank between 2016 and 2019 for suspected misuse of investors’ money, sources said.

At the time, the parent company of the mutual fund was owned by the Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group. Yes Bank was taken over by the central bank in 2020 and sold to a consortium of banks after a dramatic rise in toxic assets.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is probing whether investments by the fund, known at the time as Reliance Mutual Fund, in perpetual bonds of Yes Bank were made as part of a deal whereby in return the lender invested in securities of Anil Ambani group companies, said two sources with direct knowledge of the matter. The sources declined to be named as the investigation is confidential.

SEBI’s regulations say that the parent of a mutual fund cannot access investors’ money either directly or indirectly.

APNT has reported numbers below our/street estimates on all fronts. Volumes were flat YoY which was impacted by high base & extended monsoons in Oct which affected the festive demand. Margin recovery is a positive which we believe can continue into 4Q as well. However, APNT might settle for margins lower than historical given the expected entry of Grasim in Paints. We remain positive on APNT; however a re-rating looks unlikely given premium valuations and likely disruption due to the entry of a large player.

Management commentary by Amit Syngle, Managing Director & CEO of Asian Paints.

The domestic Decorative Business registered a flat volume and value sales delivery for the quarter, on a very high price increase base in the previous year. The extended monsoon in October also affected retailing in the peak festival season; but demand picked up in November and December leading to a double-digit growth for the Decorative Business in December. Overall, on a 9 month basis, the Decorative Business continues to grow at healthy double digit volume and value growths with strong CAGRS. The operating margins improved strongly on sequential basis as well as saw an improvement on a y-o-y basis driven by deflation in some of the raw material prices as well as continued work on driving operational efficiencies across businesses. The Industrial Business did well led by strong growth in the Auto OE and General Industrial segments. The International Business was a mixed bag with good growth in the Middle East and Africa while the South Asia market, especially Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, got severely impacted by the adverse forex & macro-economic conditions. The Home Décor market continued its expansion foray but witnessed some slowdown in the Bath and the Kitchen business this quarter. We continue to work diligently on multiple strategic initiatives to further strengthen our business model and deliver sustained value to all our stakeholders.

Gold and silver prices ended negative in a volatile session on Wednesday, weighed down by profit taking by short-term futures traders while a rebound in the U.S. dollar index and falling crude oil prices also capped gains of precious metals. The U.S. data was mixed for bullion prices but weakness in the global crude oil prices and recession fears in the U.S. triggered profit taking in gold and silver. Add on to this the Japanese yen tumbled against the U.S. dollar as the Bank of Japan made a surprise move to keep its cap on the 10-year government bond yield at 0.5%. Gold and silver trades lower as Fed’s Bullard advocates front-loading rate hikes. We expect gold and silver to remain volatile in today’s session. Gold has support at $1892-1880 while resistance is at $1922-1935. Silver has support at $23.05-22.82, while resistance is at $23.62-23.80. In INR terms gold has support at Rs 56,080-55,780, while resistance is at Rs 56,580, 56,710. Silver has support at Rs 67,650-67,180, while resistance is at Rs 68,720–69,080.

The crucial issue influencing equity markets globally is whether the US will succeed in containing inflation without falling into a recession. There is no consensus on this. When data indicate a possible recession, US markets go down and all other markets are impacted. Conversely, when data indicate the US economy dodging a recession, US markets go up triggering a rally in all other markets. This volatility will continue till there is clarity on the US recession issue. Early Q3 results indicate good performance by IT and banking. Bank Nifty is slightly weak on concerns of pressure from rising deposit costs. But the credit cycle is strong. IT numbers do not reflect recession fears. Trend indicates that the capital goods segment is strong.
