Here’s a list of the top 5 gainers and losers this week in the large-cap space.

It seems that the prudent efforts of the central banks are paying off. The effects of the consistent rate hikes taken by the central banks are reflecting in the inflation numbers. For instance, the inflation in the US cooled down to 6.5% in December as against 7.1% a month ago. With this, the US CPI has been declining for 6 months straight. 

Similarly, retail inflation in India eased to 5.72% in December 2022, hitting a 1 year low. For a second consecutive month, this figure is within RBI’s comfort range of 2% to 6%. The inflation easing came on the back of lower food prices, particularly the fall in vegetable prices. Notably, India’s CPI has been falling for 3 months now.

However, there is no guarantee that the easing inflation will continue in the coming months. An increase in commodity prices due to the China reopening underway and the continued stickiness in core inflation could adversely impact inflation levels.  

Moving on, India’s factory output, measured in terms of the Index of Industrial Production (IIP), jumped 7.1% in November as against 4% in October.

Coming to the Indian equity markets, in the last 5 trading sessions, the frontline index S&P BSE Sensex gained by 0.1%, whereas NIFTY stayed relatively flat. Earnings for the December quarter have started coming in, with bellwether TCS reporting 11% YoY growth in net profit. Similarly, Infosys beat Street estimates as its net profit surged 13% YoY to Rs 6,586 crore.
