17 BIZ GROUPS ATTAIN 1 TRILLION RUPEE MARK

As the stock market benchmark Sensex races towards its 23,000-points milestone, at least 17 business houses have attained a market cap of Rs 1 trillion or more, led by Tatas with a massive group valuation of over Rs 7 lakh crore.
These 17 business houses together command a cumulative valuation of close to Rs 35 lakh crore -- almost half of overall investor wealth of nearly Rs 75 lakh crore in the Indian markets, shows an analysis of latest valuation of all listed companies in the country.
Interestingly, Tata group commands a valuation that is greater than the combined market cap of its two nearest rivals -- HDFC group and Mukesh Ambani-led RIL group on the valuation charts. Tata group has more than 30 listed companies, while its most valued firm TCS also happens to be the country's most valued firm with a market value of over Rs 4.3 lakh crore.
The markets' 30-share benchmark index, Sensex, is currently trading near 22,700 points and has gained more than 10 per cent or over 2,500 points in the past three months, which traders largely attribute to expectations for a reforms- friendly and a stable government after the ongoing general elections.
The election results will be announced on May 16 and there are widespread expectations about Sensex achieving 23,000-point level by that time.
The ongoing rally has seen at least 17 business houses attaining a market value of Rs 1 lakh crore and more. On this list, Tatas are followed by HDFC Group (Rs 3.2 lakh crore), RIL group (Rs 3.07 lakh crore), ITC (Rs 2.7 lakh crore) and Infosys (Rs 1.8 lakh crore).
Others include Vedanta, Bharti, Aditya Birla, Sun Pharma, ICICI, L&T, Mahindra, Wipro, HUL, Adani, HCL and Bajaj groups.
Among these, Adani group has witnessed a sharp rally in the past three months and the shares of its three listed companies (Adani Enterprises, Adani Power and Adani Ports) have soared ahead by 40-101 per cent. Their collective market value has grown by more than Rs 40,000 crore in this period to close to Rs 1.03 lakh crore now.
There are a few groups which have got just one listed company, while others have multiple listed companies. The PSU companies have not been included into the study, as they do not belong to any particular business group and have got government as their main promoters.
RIL group has got two listed companies, while HDFC has got three (HDFC, HDFC Bank and Gruh Finance). Those with multiple listed companies also include Vedanta, Bharti, Aditya Birla, Sun Pharma, L&T, Mahindra, Adani, HCL and Bajaj groups.
At the individual company level also, there are 17 companies with a market capitalisation of Rs one lakh and more, but these include three PSUs (ONGC, Coal India and SBI).
Among private sector companies, Tata group has got two companies (TCS and Tata Motors) in this list.

NIFTY EARNINGS FLAT IN 2018

UBS Cautious Note

Projecting zero returns from the Nifty, Swiss brokerage UBS has projected a 10 per cent cut in its index target at 10,500 for calendar 2018, even as it remains positive over the long-term. "Top-down, we forecast Nifty earnings growth will recover from 9 per cent in fiscal 2018 to 13 per cent in 2019, but driven largely by financials," the brokerage said in a report. "However, earnings growth is likely to disappoint against consensus forecast of 22 per cent growth for fiscal 2019, implying a 10 per cent cut," it added. Accordingly, the brokerage estimates "no returns from the Nifty in 2018" and has set the index target at 10,500 for this December. The report noted that a sharp earnings recovery, with continued robust macro stability appears priced in by the markets. "A sharp earnings recovery appears priced in. The markets are already close to our 2018 target, given optimistic fiscal 2019 consensus earnings expectations, which build …
