Index heavyweight and housing finance major HDFC lost 1.10% to Rs 1,810.15.

Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) rose 2.26% to Rs 868.80 after the company reported good Q4 March 2018 results during trading hours today, 29 May 2018. The results for M&M include the combined results of M&M and Mahindra Vehicle Manufacturers Limited (MVML), which is a manufacturing unit of M&M.

Combined profit from ordinary activities after tax (after EI) rose 50% to Rs 1155 crore in Q4 March 2018 over Q4 March 2017. Combined revenue rose 26% to 13189 crore in Q4 March 2018 over Q4 March 2017. Combined (OPM) was reported at 15.1% in Q4 March 2018, higher than 11.2% in Q4 March 2017.

For the year FY 2018, improvement in overall economic sentiment, two consecutive years of normal monsoon, government's focus on development of agri and rural sectors, with continued investment in Infrastructure, coupled with easy availability of affordable finance, helped drive the demand for the automotive as well as the tractor industry, M&M said in a statement.

For Q4 March 2018, the domestic auto industry (excluding 2W) grew 19%, with the passenger vehicles reporting a growth of 7% and the UV segment a growth 25%. The domestic tractor industry witnessed a very high growth of 44%. In Q4 March 2018, the domestic automotive volume for the company grew 20% while the domestic tractor volumes grew 44%, it said.

In its outlook, M&M said economic activity is expected to gather pace as the transitory effects of implementation of the goods and services tax (GST) recede. This outlook will also be lifted by tailwinds from normal rainfall with the weather bureau forecasting a 'normal' monsoon for the third successive year in its first stage long range forecast. While the spatial and temporal distribution remain to be seen, well spread out rainfall is likely to have a salutary impact on the overall demand conditions. However, rising crude oil prices, which have already risen noticeably, call for greater prudence. Global growth backdrop too remains benign with the synchronised cyclical rebound. However, escalation in geo-political risks, trade frictions, tightening monetary conditions, and higher crude oil prices could pose downside risks to global trade and demand growth outlook, M&M added.

Markets fear a snap election will turn into referendum on Italy's euro membership.
