Markets made fresh records their new home as the Sensex today settled at 32,515 and the Nifty 10,077, riding on tailwinds of strong corporate earnings amid expectations of an interest rate cut by the Reserve Bank. The rally mirrored strength in most Asian indices. European shares ruled high too despite heightened tension over North Korea's missile programme. The 30-share Sensex settled at the new high of 32,514.94, up 205.06 points, or 0.63 per cent. This has breached the previous closing record of 32,383.30 hit on July 27. The gauge had lost 73.42 points in the previous session on Friday.
The 50-issue NSE Nifty hit an all-time high during the day. It settled up 62.60 points, or 0.63 per cent, at a fresh life high of 10,077.10, breaking its previous record of 10,020.65 recorded on July 26. "Good results from index heavyweights continue to add liquidity while the country's largest PSU bank's interest rate cut decision attracted investors to the banking stocks on expectation of more peers to follow the trend. Moderation in inflation to below RBI's target of 4 per cent heightened the expectation of rate cut during the next monetary policy," said Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services.
The largest lender, State Bank of India, was on the top of the pack, up 4.46 per cent, after it slashed interest rate on savings account deposits by 50 bps to 3.5 per cent on balance of up to Rs 1 crore.
Expectations are building that the RBI would take note of the softening inflationary trend and ease policy at its upcoming meet on Wednesday. Inflation has since dropped to record low. Investors also continued to keep faith in the quarterly corporate earnings story and this optimism rubbed off on the indices. Shares of Larsen and Toubro surged by 2.85 per cent after the company posted a 46 per cent cent jump in consolidated net profit for the June quarter.
The BSE consumer durable goods starred in the rally by surging 1.86 per cent, followed by metal and PSU.
A similar story played out in broader markets.
Traders said risk sentiment improved by strong liquidity amid pumping of sufficient funds by foreign as well as domestic institutional investors and widespread buying by retail investors after more blue-chip companies came out with better-than-expected first quarter earnings figures.
DIIs bought shares worth a net Rs 424.67 crore while FPIs net sold shares worth Rs 223.12 crore on Friday, as per provisional data. 

55 of BSE 100 see Rs1.34 L cr rise in net worth post Ind AS

The net worth of 55 of BSE top 100 companies rose by Rs 1,34,400 crore following the transition to Indian Accounting Standards (Ind AS), says a report by business consulting firm EY.
However, 17 firm witnessed a decline of Rs 35,000 crore in their net worth after the transition, the report said.
EY performed a review of financial results of BSE top 100 companies that were covered in phase 1 of the transition to Ind AS as per the roadmap issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
According to the report titled 'Ind AS Transition: Journey of Indian Corporates', 39 companies reported Rs 5,200 crore increase in profit, while 35 companies saw Rs 40,900 crore fall in their net earnings.
"One of the primary reason for the increase in net-worth was the deemed costs option as adopted by some of the companies in transition. This enabled them to fair value the investments in subsidiaries as well as fair value the property, plant and equipment (PPE)," the report said.
Additionally many companies had to account for fair value changes in their investments in equity shares and certain derivative instruments which has resulted in significant upside to the net-worth on transition, it added.
"The regulators and all stakeholders need to put together a robust system to monitor the quality of financial reporting and at the same time come out with new standards to align with ongoing accounting change under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)," Sandip Khetan, Partner in an Indian member firm of EY Global said.
The report further noted that overall, all the companies were able to file the Ind AS financials on time, indicating that the transition was well planned and executed.

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977. A person who had put in Rs 1,000 then in the IPO is worth over a million today, going by the price of RIL. Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…


Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows. The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.
Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
