Key equity benchmarks ended higher for the third consecutive trading session on Wednesday, July 17, 2019. However, certain stocks came in news after the market was closed for the day. These stocks can have an impact on the indices after the market is opened for trading purposes on Thursday, July 18, 2019. Here is a list of five such stocks:
Public and Private Banks: Both private and public banks will remain in focus today because the Union Cabinet on Wednesday approved seven amendments to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) 2016. The amendments include a new deadline of 330 days from 270 days for completion of the corporate insolvency resolution process (CIRP). About 30 per cent of the more than 800 ongoing CIRP cases has exceeded the 270-day statutory timeline. An additional 20 per cent has crossed the six-month deadline. Another key amendment is to specify that the bankruptcy resolution or liquidation arrived at under the Code is binding on central, state and local governments, to whom the bankrupt firm may owe dues.
