The 10-year benchmark bond yield fell 4 basis points to 8.93 percent from 8.97 percent before the auction results after the better-than-expected cutoffs.
The yield was down 3 bps on the day. The RBI set the cut-off price for 8.35 percent 2022 bonds at Rs 95.45, yielding 9.1584 percent, while the cut-off price for 8.24 percent 2027 bonds were set at Rs 92.05, yielding 9.3122 percent.

The word conglomerate might as well have been invented to describe General Electric. It makes everything from x-ray machines to wind turbines.
However, that wasn’t enough to prevent America’s best-known conglomerate reporting that first-quarter profits fell $2.99bn, or 30 cents a share, from $3.52bn, or 35 cents a share, in the first three months last year. Revenues slipped 2 per cent to $34.2bn.
With discontinued operations stripped out, GE said it earned 33 cents a share, topping Wall Street’s estimates of 32 cents.
Chief executive Jeff Immelt, who has had the top job for more than a decade, is trying to return GE to its manufacturing roots after its lending and consumer finance business scarred the company during the financial crisis. The North American consumer finance business is, for example, being spun off this year.
GE, which divides its sprawling industrial business into seven divisions, including aviation and healthcare, said that its order backlog reached a record $245bn.
Diageo has made an open offer to all public shareholders of United Spirits (USL) to acquire an additional 26 percent stake in the company, which will increase Diageo’s holding in USL to 54.78 percent.
The open offer has been priced at Rs 3030 per share, which is a 22.5 percent premium to the price at which Diageo last acquired USL shares on January 31, 2014. With Diageo displaying an increased level of confidence in United Spirits, growth prospects of Indian liquor business can be looked into. Abhijeet Kundu, FMCG Analyst, Antique Broking and K Laxmi Narasimhan, Deputy MD, Tilaknagar Industries , give us an overview.
Kundu feels that individual investors should tender to USL open offer as it provides an attractive exit price. With all positives already factored into USL stock, Antique Broking sees a likely re-rating for most liquor companies. Narasimhan of Tilaknagar Industries, which mainly focuses on brandy and rum, said the Indian liquor industry for long has been under-rated, adding the country’s branded liquor business stands around Rs 1.2 lakh crore.
Market leader of brandy in South India, the company’s branded liquor sale is over Rs 6,000 crore. Tilaknagar Industries, which has been maintaining a compounded annual growth rate (CAGR) of around 25 percent for the last four years, sees the alcohol industry growing at 8 percent pace.

Standard and Poor’s may upgrade India’s outlook if the government that is elected next month addresses some of the country’s fiscal and economic challenges through steps such as passing a goods and services tax.
“If in the future they implement policies that effectively addresses some of the credit weaknesses that I have highlighted, we could revise the outlook to stable again,” said S&P senior director Kim Eng Tan in a webcast.
“In the absence of effective policy action, we could lower the ratings on the sovereign,” he added. S&P rates India at “BBB-minus” and is the only of the three major credit agencies to have a “negative” outlook.
