New Delhi: Stock markets may take a hit this week on weak global cues as US President Donald Trump announced on Sunday that tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods will increase next week to 25% from 10%. Futures on the S&P 500 Index sank more than 2% after Trump tweeted his plan to hike tariffs.

The announcement roiled markets across the globe. Contracts on the Nikkei 225 Stock Average fell 2.2% in Chicago, futures on the FTSE China A50 were down 4.3%, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 Index dropped 1.1%. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude also declined almost 3% to $60.11 per barrel.

The Sensex and the Nifty had ended last week on flat note on the back of subdued domestic and international cues. On a weekly basis, the Sensex was down 0.26%, while the Nifty shed 0.36%. This week, the equity indices will be looking at some major earnings announcement, macroeconomic data like factory output and manufacturing growth and the fifth phase of general elections.

Vodafone Idea: Promoters Vodafone Group Plc. and Aditya Birla Group, have infused Rs17,920 crore into Vodafone Idea via the Rs25,000-crore rights issue that was oversubscribed. With this contribution, the promoters' stake in the country's largest telecom operator increased marginally to 71.57% from 71.33%.

Yes Bank: Yes Bank on Saturday said Icra, a rating agency, has downgraded the bank’s tier-I and tier-II bonds and infrastructure debt on deterioration in the credit quality of large ticket borrowers. The agency has downgraded the lender’ tier-I bond from "AA-" to "A" and tier-II bonds from "AA" to "AA-" The outlook is negative on both bonds, the bank said.

HUL: Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL) announced its March quarter earnings on Friday. Net profit was up 13.8% to Rs1,538 crore compared with Rs1,351 crore, while revenue was up 9.3% to Rs9,945 crore.
