Goldman Sachs CPSE ETF

Goldman Sachs launches Central Public Sector Enterprises (CPSE) ETF, an open-ended scheme that consists of shares of 10 major public sector units, including Oil & Natural Gas Corporation, GAIL India and Coal India and it opens for subscription today with the government aiming to raise Rs 3,000 crore.

CPSE-ETF

About the scheme:

The scheme which is open till 21 March 2014, will mirror the returns of the CPSE index from the National Stock Exchange, which is currently at 1855. The CPSE index has ten stocks, chosen on three criteria — a 55 per cent Government holding, a 4 per cent dividend yield, seven-year dividend paying record and a free float market cap of  Rs.1,000 crore or more.

Pros and Cons:

  • Companies making up this fund have been selected for their dividend record in the last seven years, therefore, the fund is likely to receive steady cash flows from its holdings in the form of dividends. This will prop up its returns of the fund. 
  • There is a 5 percent discount for investing in the NFO and also you get a discount in the form of loyalty bonus wherein for every 15 units, you get one unit free after one year.
  • Investing in CPSE ETF is a low-cost route to investing in PSE stocks.

  • At the same time these stocks have had a good run and also some of the stocks are part of the Nifty Index. And any profit booking in Nifty will lead to a substantial correction in these stocks as well. 

Hence, investing in PSE ETF can be considered only if  you can actively track returns and book profits when the stocks run up. Since the ETF is to be listed on the National Stock Exchange, one can wait and watch the performance of the fund and consider investing at a later stage.

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.
