Stock Watch - Axis Bank


Axis Bank, previously UTI Bank, was the first of the new private banks to have begun operations in 1994, after the Government of India allowed new private banks to be established.
Axis Bank stands apart from its private sector competitors HDFC Bank and ICICI Bank — in one crucial respect. While the other two banks have envisaged retail banking as a key area of strategic emphasis — with the share of the retail business growing strongly year after year— the share of retail business, particularly retail assets, has actually come down quite sharply in the case of Axis Bank.

Positives
..Consistency in its earning growth (grown over 30% YoYin 33 out of
the last 35 quarters)
..Robust asset quality despite strong growth in assets during last
couple of years
..One of the highest CASA (40%), next only to HDFC Bank & SBI.
..Diversified loan book –well spread across all segments.
..Has strong technology, expanding distribution franchise & large
array of products
Risks
..Ripple effect of financial crisis in US & Europe
..Downside risk arises from hard-landing of our economy
..Deterioration in the asset quality, if any, would require higher provisioning.
At current price of around 400 it trades around 11 times FY09 and 9 times FY10.Medium to Long term investors can accumulate this stock which can give very decent returns.

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.




You could just try the same here at Moneycontrol Terminal
