    Steady policy interest rates and maintained policy stance was widely expected: Shishir Baijal of Knight Frank India

    Commenting on RBI MPC Meeting, Shishir Baijal, Chairman and Managing Director, Knight Frank India, said, “Steady policy interest rates and maintained policy stance was widely expected and aligns with the trajectory of key global central banks. The undertone however remains precautionary over inflation risks in the upcoming months due to seasonal volatility in food prices. The decision will continue to support the existing momentum of residential real estate demand in India. Despite the escalations in the borrowing costs, the overall housing market has continued to remain upbeat; however, the momentum in the affordable segment has lagged. Thus, a pause is supportive of catering to the housing needs of the vulnerable segment.”

    Sreeram Ramdas, Vice President, Green Portfolio PMS

    The stock market is likely to react positively to the RBI’s recent announcements. The decision to maintain the policy repo rate and the continued focus on inflation targeting provides a stable environment for investors. This stability, combined with India’s strong economic fundamentals and GDP growth, is likely to boost investor confidence. The banking sector may benefit from the steady interest rate environment, as it aids in better margin management. Furthermore, sectors like healthcare and education might receive a positive impact from the enhanced UPI transaction limits, enabling more significant financial transactions in these areas. However, the emphasis on inflation control and potential supply-side shocks could mean cautious investment in sectors heavily reliant on raw material prices. Overall, the stock market is likely to experience a steady momentum, buoyed by a stable policy environment and strong economic indicators.

    This is a very bullish indication of where the economy is headed, but not so much for the markets.

    The RBI has in no way indicated a relaxation in repo rates. The economy is on strong footing despite the sharp rise in rates and the RBI is seeing no need to reverse direction. 

    Even though inflation is expected to inch up in the immediate term due to higher food prices, the RBI will be complacent to such data and will be focusing on the medium-term outlook. Medium term, our growth is expected to be 7% for FY24 and FY25 with inflation under the 6% bar.

    Overall, this is a very encouraging statement. When other economies are considering a reversal in policy rates because their economies are slowing down, India, as an outlier, is in the most comfortable place possible.

    Sonam Srivastava Founder and Fund Manager of Wright Research, PMS

    General Perspective: The RBI’s MPC’s decision to keep the repo rate unchanged at 6.5% signifies a cautious yet optimistic outlook on India’s economic stability. This decision, against the backdrop of stronger-than-anticipated GDP growth and controlled inflation, is a positive signal for the industry. It suggests a continued focus on balanced economic growth while keeping inflation in check, which is crucial for sustainable economic health. This approach should support stable business operations and potentially encourage investment and growth across various sectors.

    Stock Market Impact: The MPC’s decision is likely to be well-received by the stock market, as the maintenance of the status quo on interest rates often provides a sense of stability and predictability to investors. Specifically, the banking sector may see a steady operational environment, which can be conducive for sustained lending and financial activities. Other sectors, especially those sensitive to interest rate changes like real estate, automobiles, and consumer durables, could also witness a positive impact as the current interest rate environment supports consumer spending and borrowing.

    Anil Rego, Founder and Fund Manager at Right Horizons, PMS

    The RBI’s decision to continue with a pause on the rate hike cycle, staying with the 6.5 percent repo rate, after a cumulative hike in the repo rate by 250 basis points (bps) since May 2022 due to persistent inflation, was on expected lines. In October 2023, the annual retail price inflation in India decreased to 4.87%, marking the lowest level in four months, as opposed to the 5.02% recorded in September. Additionally, India’s wholesale prices experienced a year-on-year contraction of 0.52% in October 2023, following a 0.26% decline in the previous month. Brent Crude trades close to 75$ per bbl despite the extended supply cuts as the market is focused more on demand than supply.

    The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) recorded a robust economic growth rate of ~7.7% in H1FY24 exceeding expectations. The Monetary Policy Committee has maintained the status quo on the repo rate as inflation moderates in a resilient growing economy.

    Since inflation is moderating, economic activity is steady, oil prices are lower and India is poised to be the growth engine for the global economy the markets were expecting the repo rate to be unchanged at 6.5%. We believe markets in the near term will now be driven by the upcoming earnings season and the 2024 elections.

    Markets have touched new highs, especially with earnings for the H1FY24 coming healthy supporting the trajectory. Investors are bullish as they are favouring rate cuts in 2024 which will unanimously boost the equity markets. The banking sector is the most sensitive to changes in rate cycles and has been a major reason for incremental earnings in FY23 and in H1 of FY24 benefitting from the hikes and credit growth being robust and persistent. Prolonged rate cuts will eventually lead to narrowing NIM but we expect rate cuts to begin in the last quarter and hence the trend in the banking sector is likely to continue in FY24. NBFCs will be best positioned to benefit from cuts in rates as credit growth will improve followed by banks. Also, credit-sensitive sectors like auto and real estate will see higher demand.

    Mr. Mohit Ralhan – CEO, TIW Capital on RBI MPC Announcement (December 2023)

    “Citing the progress that has been achieved in bringing down inflation, the RBI MPC kept policy rate unchanged at 6.5%. However, commentary remained hawkish as the governor highlighted risks from higher food prices. Vegetable and pulses prices remain a key risk. High frequency indicators suggest food inflation could inch higher in November and December. While the committee can look through such transitory shocks, it remains vigilant on their second order effects in terms of such shocks feeding into inflationary expectations. Volatility in crude oil prices also remains a risk. Growth momentum remains robust. While urban demand has been resilient, rural demand is making a comeback. Corporate investment activity has picked up pace this year. Given that capacity utilizations have moved above average levels and leverage remains low, capex momentum is likely to continue. Given the positive backdrop, RBI revised FY 2024 growth estimate to 7% YoY. However, this also suggests that core inflation could remain sticky for longer. The RBI kept inflation projection for FY 2024 at 5.4%. The 4% target is expected to be achieved only by Q2 FY 2025. On liquidity front, the central bank maintained its stance of withdrawal of accommodation. However, compared to October meeting, significant progress has been achieved due to higher currency leakage during the festive season, higher government expenditure and RBI open market operations. This warrants low intervention from the central bank going ahead. To allow for better liquidity management, the central bank has allowed reversal of MSF and SDF facilities even on holidays and weekends. The move will come into effect from 30th Dec 2023 and will be reviewed in six months or earlier if needed.”

    RBI MPC: Comfortable tone: Ms. Madhavi Arora, Lead Economist, Emkay Global Financial Services

    • A benign global narrative, tighter system liquidity and easing core inflation despite stronger growth acted as comfortable backdrop of today’s MPC meeting. Fears of financial stability risks have taken a back seat amid swift change in global risk appetite and low volatility in FX. This also thus precludes the need to conduct OMO sales.
    • We have been insisting OMO sales was merely announced last time as a way to depict implied policy bias for higher rates and a way to offer higher risk premia to the world and to anchor INR – none of which turned out to be a worry and India-US 10Y spread has widened to ~300bps after having seen the decadal lows of ~240bps in mid-Oct ’23.

    Meanwhile, the spread between avg weighted call money rate and repo rate has since widened as liquidity tightened further. 

    We expect liquidity to stay comfortable and range-bound in the near term but to tighten by March.

    • The policy outcome is largely neutral for bonds and we see markets to stay range bound amid low year-end liquidity, with ten yr yield hovering 7.20-7.30%

    • However, RBI’s consistent concern on skewness of liquidity distribution in the banking system has now led them to allow reversal of liquidity facility under both SDF and MSF even on weekends.

    • On domestic dynamics, the Gov sounded positive, and has upgraded FY24 growth to 7% after undershooting 1H, now forecasting 6.3% growth in 2H. We however see growth easing to <6% comfortably in 2H and see FY24 at 6.6%.

    The RBI’s FY25 GDP forecast for first three quarters looks healthy as well. On inflation, despite risks on account of patchy perishables, the MPC outlook is unchanged at 5.4% for FY24 (Emkay: 5.4%).

    • Overall, the policy tone was comfortable, while MPC still insisting on keeping an eye on inflation and financial stability risk and active liquidity management.

    The MPC continues to stress the policy stance has to stay actively disinflationary, while supporting growth.

    We maintain the RBI will stay vigilant, and it is unlikely to precede the Fed in any policy reversal in CY24.

    Reaction on today’s RBI Monetary Policy by Industry Leaders

    Ms. Anitha Rangan, Economist, Equirus

    “RBI in line with market expectations held on to its Repo rate at 6.5% with a unanimous vote. However the big surprise was revision in growth estimate for FY 24 to 7% from 6.5%. Along with expectations of strong growth, RBI has not revised its inflation estimate downward. This means that RBI is comfortable that at the current policy rate, growth is not inflationary but rather real-demand led growth. Furthermore, on the stance of liquidity, governor said that there was not need for “OMO sales” with liquidity remaining tight. This is a big relief to the bond markets, which were edgy on OMO sales expectations. While sounding a point of caution on food inflation getting entrenched and being watchful of the 2nd round effects, governor also noted comfort on moderation in core and other components in head-line inflation. In summary, while reiterating their stance of remaining vigilant and watchful, there was a tone of comfort with most global central banks remaining on pause. A pro-growth policy without too much worry on inflation”

    “The unchanged repo rate is a positive step for India’s credit economy, particularly for customers in rural areas who can now borrow more freely. This was witnessed during the recent festive season, where vehicle sales reached record highs, largely due to steady interest rates and lenders passing on the benefits to customers”.

    RBI MPC quote from Sujan Hajra, Chief Economist & Executive Director, Anand Rathi Shares and Stock Brokers

    The RBI maintained the exact status quo with regard to policy rates and liquidity stance, as anticipated. The RBI has increased its GDP forecast for FY24 by 50 basis points, to 7%, while leaving the inflation forecast unchanged. Although the magnitude of the GDP forecast upgrade exceeded our initial projections, all other declarations and positions remained largely consistent with our expectations. As of now, the RBI anticipates that liquidity conditions will remain stable. The policy was, on the whole, less hawkish than had been anticipated. Simultaneously, the governor issues specific warnings regarding premature adjustments to monetary policy rates and liquidity stance, which indicate that the rate pause and liquidity withdrawal stance may persist for a longer duration than initially expected. We maintain our assessment that no rate reductions would occur until the latter part of fiscal year FY25. An upward adjustment to the GDP forecast would have a favourable effect on market sentiment.

The undercurrents in the economy indicate a robust economy capable of sustaining the current trend of earnings growth into FY 25. Leading indicators like power demand, housing demand, credit growth and revival of rural demand suggest a resilient economy which can keep the market buoyant, restrained only by valuations. Fairly valued segments like banking may be accumulated on dips.

    Crude oil prices experienced a recovery, likely due to technical-related buying, although they were still on track to register a weekly loss of over 5%. This decline was influenced by indications of increasing global supplies and weakening demand. The notable increase in U.S. gasoline inventories, coupled with data showing near-record crude exports, contributed to the bearish sentiment.

    Stock market live updates: Here’s what Ind-Ra said on India Inc

    India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) opines the improving trend in credit profile of mid & small corporates (revenues below INR10 billion) seen until FY23, could reverse in FY24 and beyond. This could be led by continued low revenue growth, lower operating leverage and limited bargaining power that would necessitate them to raise additional debt to meet their working capital and capex requirements. Large corporates (revenues above INR10 billion) on the other hand, are likely to be better positioned and a reversal, if any, could be limited. 

    Overall, the gap between the credit profiles of large corporates and mid-corporates widened during 1HFY24. Ind-Ra’s rated entities have continued to exhibit high operational stability, given the buffers built up; however, continuing low revenue growths impact on credit profile remains a key monitorable.

    Stock market live updates: Here’s what Elara Securities India said on paints industry

    Our channel checks suggest overall demand is likely to remain weak in Q3FY24, contrary to expectations of a recovery during the festival and marriage seasons. Consumer sentiments are weak post-Diwali. While October showed strong YoY growth, November saw a decline. Our channel checks show Grasim is focused on attracting dealers by offering: 1) store makeover to non-Asian Paints dealers, 2) buying shelf space with Asian Paints dealers, 3) reducing inventory of dealers, and 4) providing clarity on scheme payouts.

    Q3FY24 demand remains weak on low base

    Overall demand continues to be soft contrary to expectations of a good recovery in Q3, due to the long festival and marriage seasons

    Our interactions with dealers indicates that consumer sentiments remain weak and while October saw robust growth YoY due to the shift in festival season, demand has been poor post Diwali, which may impact overall volume growth in Q3

    Our checks across several regions indicate combined volume for October and November will be in the mid-single digits as post October there has been a decline, except in the Rajasthan market where volume growth has been in the double digits, primarily driven by a higher number of weddings. Volume recovery in December would be key 

    Downgrading to economy paints and the recent price reduction of 1-2% would impact value growth of paint companies. We believe value growth could be in the mid-to-low single digits 

    Grasim entices dealers with offers to improve visibility

    Non-Asian Paints dealers are being offered a complete makeover of stores with 70% cost funded by Grasim. The store would be exclusive with a three-year arrangement. Furthermore, such a store would be provided with a sales person as well

    In an Asian Paints dealer, Grasim is focusing on buying shelf space in a store to improve visibility

    Grasim is focused on reducing dealer inventory, which has increased significantly due to aggressive schemes offered by the leader in the recent past

    Further, it would provide clarity in terms of scheme payouts, which has been cause for concern, as several schemes launched by the leader has created a confusion

    Our view: negative stance on the paints sector

    We remain negative on the paints sector as we believe increased competition will drag category EBITDA margin once companies focus on gaining market share and driving volume growth.

    D’Mart Ready sustains competitive advantage

    We analyzed price trend of 125 products across D’Mart Ready, Jiomart and Big Basket in key consumer categories of Loose grocery items, dairy, packaged food, beverages, personal care and home care. We observed that out of 125 products that we compared, the price gap (Nov’23 vs Aug’23) between D’Mart Ready & Big Basket increased for 40% of products, while for Jiomart the trend was mixed with 36%/24% of products seeing gap increase/decrease. D’Mart Ready continues to remain most competitive in online retail led by 1) sustained price gap with BB & Jiomart 2) rising consumer activations and advertising and 3) increase in delivery charges/higher cart value for free delivery by other channels.

    We note that Ecom in Grocery and Food is witnessing accelerated growth due to rising acceptance of quick commerce. However, quick commerce is gaining ground at the expense of Mom and Pop stores while formats like Hypermarts and online platforms (D’Mart Ready, JIO, Big Basket, Amazon) continue to cater to monthly/bi-weekly grocery requirements. We expect D’Mart Ready to sustain strong growth due to sourcing and scale advantages. We expect D’Mart Ready to report sales of Rs48bn with EBIDTA loss of R424mn by FY26 with full turnaround by FY28. Retain ‘Buy’ on D’Mart with DCF based TP of Rs 4724

    Stock market live updates| Life insurance business in Nov 23: Muted show in festive-disruption month, as expected, says Emkay Global. Here’s what it said

    The life insurance industry, as anticipated, reported 3.8% decline in Retail APE for Nov-23 due to a higher base of Nov-22 (post the Diwali month) and given the Diwali festive disruptions during Nov-23. 

    Private players logged a minor dip of 1.3% YoY while LIC posted a sharper 8.7% drop in Retail APE, during Nov-23. In Nov-22, the industry saw strong Retail APE growth of 22% (private sector: 27%; LIC: 13%) bolstered by Diwali festivity disruption occurring earlier in Oct-22 and some players running distribution incentive programs (such as MDRT) in the month. 

    In line with our expectations, Nov-23 witnessed Max Life reporting better-than-industry Retail APE growth at 8.3% YoY while HDFC Life and SBI life clocked a 3.7% and 2.7% decline, respectively, among listed players. With festive disruptions now behind and given the ongoing incentive programs, Dec-23 is crucial for the FY24 sector-growth, as private players are likely to see a YoY decline in Mar-24 YoY owing to bumper sales in Mar-23. We expect the industry to deliver 6-7% Retail APE growth during FY24E, led by private players—forecast to register 11-12% growth, whereas LIC is expected to deliver a low single-digit growth. From the equity investment perspective, the life insurance sector continues to offer an attractive risk-reward proposition.

    We remain in favor of SBILIFE, HDFCLIFE and MAXF.

    - We were enthused with TRP’s efforts to not only scale-up, but also improve profitability of the Curatio portfolio. Apart from enhancing its presence in derma therapy, it has firmed up levers to drive better-than-industry growth in prescription-led portfolio.

    - Following the initial success in the OTC program for the India market, TRP intends to scale up activities through new launches and marketing efforts.

    - TRP has also strengthened its MR force and product launches to outpace the Brazilian market and drive better margins as well.

    - Following the clearance of the Dahej site by USFDA on the regulatory front, a gradual uptick in the US generics business is anticipated.

    - Compared to 10%/15%/10% sales/EBITDA/PAT CAGR over FY18-23, TRP is expected to deliver 14%/18%/29% sales/EBITDA/PAT CAGR over FY23-26, led by 16% sales CAGR in branded generics (DF/Brazil), 11% sales CAGR in US generics, and 300bp margin expansion. We value TRP at 28x 12M forward earning to arrive at a price target of INR2,160. We maintain a Neutral stance on limited upside from the current levels.

    - Cholamandalam Finance (CIFC) has taken a successful leap forward in reducing the cyclicality, which was inherent in its core vehicle financing business. Non-auto product segments now account for ~40% of the loan mix, which includes ~11% from new businesses of Consumer and Small Enterprise (CSEL), SBPL and SME (incorporated in Jan’22).

    - As of Sep’23, AUM of new businesses rose ~180% YoY (albeit on a small base) to ~INR133.3b. Among new businesses, CSEL accounts for ~7% of total AUM.
