NEW DELHI: It is a big day for the US as President-elect Donald Trump will officially become the 45th President of the US on Friday. This will be watched by market community across the globe, including India. Donald Trump's protectionist stance could have a major impact on Indian exporters such as IT and pharma, trade relations, as well as fund flows coming into India. US business accounts for 50-80 per cent of the total business of Indian IT companies. Minimum wage hike to $100,000 may translate into 9-25 per cent earnings per share (EPS) cut for FY18. However, management commentary for TCS as well as Infosys rebuffed those fears. The pharma sector will have to face its own set of challenges. Proposed import tax of 35 per cent is likely to impact companies with higher sales from non-US facilities. "Non-US manufactured sales account for nearly 40-100 per cent for major pharma companies," said an ET report.

The risk of climate change does exist. The consequences of it could be serious enough that action should be taken. So what might that action be? Mr Trump's advisers say leave it to the market. I think there is going to be a healthy dose of scepticism about international climate agreements because again it is more of the same, it is all costs, no real meaningful climate benefit. For the scientists monitoring global temperatures this is an alarming moment.

Director Rupert Sanders has said there'll be more action in his movie than the more philosophical anime movies and series, but from the snippets of footage we've seen so far, Ghost In The Shell appears to be remaining true to the spirit of the original stories. Scarlett Johansson, Takeshi Kitano and Juliette Binoche lead a sterling international cast. 26. Tulip Fever Anyone who collected comics in the early 90s will know what an asset bubble is: everyone goes nuts and buys into the next sure-fire deal, only to see the value of what they're buying collapse as the market becomes over-saturated. Well, centuries before investors were frantically buying copies of X-Force , a similar air of fervour surrounded tulip bulbs, of all things. Tulip Fever , written by Tom Stoppard and directed by Justin Chadwick, tells the story of a 17th century couple who buy into the exploding market for tulips - which the Dutch were punting out all over Europe for inflated prices in the 1630s - only to see the sales plummet like a piano down a mineshaft.

WHILE last week we published views on the global outlook, this week we explore the market in various regions as well as the local scene. It's a new year and looking at how the property market and our local currency fared in 2016, many are sceptical. With that, we have compiled views and comments from various industry specialists and market professionals for a better idea of what can be expected in the Year of the Rooster. Regional overview According to JLL's forecast for 2017 delivered by its global capital markets research director, David Green-Morgan, the amount of capital targeting real estate across the world will remain constant, with volumes expected to exceed slightly. However, political and market uncertainty will likely perpetuate into the year. Green-Morgan shares that performance in two of the region's biggest markets, Australia and Japan, was down by 17% and 1% respectively, with China recording a 19% increase.

Curtis Moldrich 12 min 59 sec ago Cars If you’re in the market for an electric car, the Nissan Leaf easily represents one of your best options. It’s fast – to 30mph at least – relatively inexpensive, and probably has enough range to eat up your commute and more. However, the Leaf isnt the only interesting electric, green product Nissan makes in 2017. The Japanese manufacturer also makes the xStorage home battery, Nissan’s answer to Tesla’s Powerwall 2. What is the Nissan xStorage? A joint project between Nissan and Eaton, the xStorage is basically a huge battery for your home – and it also solves a huge problem with solar power. Solar energy is both cheap and clean and collects a huge amount of energy in the day – more than we’d need in fact. The only issue? Once night comes and we really need electricity for light and heating, there’s no solar energy to convert to electricity.

MUMBAI: Fairfax Financial Holdings is in early talks to sell 25 percent of India's largest private general insurer ICICI Lombard in a deal that could fetch up to $1 billion, as the Canadian firm looks to cash out and start a new insurance joint venture, sources familiar with the matter said. ICICI Lombard is a joint venture formed in 2001 between ICICI Bank, India's second largest bank, and Fairfax, which is led by Canadian billionaire Prem Watsa. Fairfax, which owns a 35 percent stake in the venture, has seen the value of its investment surge over the past five years, as India's general insurance market and ICICI Lombard have grown at a compounded annual rate of over 16 percent. Vehicle ownership in the country has surged and the market remains under-penetrated. Reducing its stake to 10 percent will allow the Canadian firm to start a new general insurance joint venture in India, which it aims to do, one of the sources said, adding foreign investors cannot own more than 10 percent of two insurance companies, as per Indian regulations.
