    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex, Nifty start FY2025 on a high note: Sensex gains over 400 points, Nifty around 22,470 points

    The first day of the financial year 2025 started with a positive note. The 30-share BSE Sensex climbed 405.60 points to 74,056.95 in early trade. The NSE Nifty gained 144.75 points to 22,471.65. 

    However, analysts expect the market to move in a narrow range ahead of RBI policy, Q4 results, and India Inc.’s FY25 outlook. They feel the general election will likely dampen trading interest in the coming days.

    FY24 marked a rewarding period for the Indian market. Large caps recorded a substantial 33 per cent return, mid-caps surged by 56 per cent, and small caps excelled with an impressive 63 per cent.

    “It was loaded by the upgrade in FY24 economy growth, as the Indian GDP forecast was uplifted on a QoQ basis from 6.4 per cent to 7.3 per cent during the year. There was a rampage in corporate earnings growth, like with the 23-24 per cent YoY EPS forecast for the Nifty50 index, said Vinod Nair of Geojit Financial Services.

    Retail inflows remained robust, supported by direct investments as well as investments through MFs. The number of trading accounts held by domestic investors reached 16.7cr, underscoring increased market participation. Additionally, FIIs exhibited improved net buying activity, buoyed by India’s economic outperformance relative to other EMs experiencing slowdowns, he further said.

    Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investmart, said: the RBI Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) is set to start its 3-day meeting deliberating interest rates and analysing the state of the economy on April 3 and will end on April 5.

    “Reports suggest that the RBI is likely to keep interest rates unchanged at this meeting. Auto stocks will also be in focus as auto companies will announce the monthly sales numbers for March starting from April 1, 2024. Additionally, people will be watching how the rupee fares against the dollar and keeping tabs on crude oil prices. They’ll also be keeping an eye on investments made by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) and domestic institutional investors (DIIs).”

    Meanwhile, Asia-Pacific stocks are mixed, and most have closed. Japan stocks are down, while Chinese, Singapore, and Taiwan stocks are up in early trade.

    According to Arvinder Singh Nanda, Senior Vice President of Master Capital Services Ltd, The outlook for the market will be guided by the major global and domestic economic data, India automobile sales, US and India Manufacturing purchasing managers indices (PMI), US job Openings, Factory Orders and US non-farm Payrolls, and Unemployment Rate. 

    “The Reserve Bank of India’s Monetary Policy Committee will meet on April 3-5, 2024, and decide on policy rates. The monetary policy statement will provide important cues on the economy, inflation and interest rates,” he added.

    Nair said: “ As we move on to a new financial year, we express optimism towards sectors such as Pharma, Capital Goods, and Infra, as we see them as key growth drivers, supported by both domestic and external demand.” 

    He said, “although some sectors like FMCG and IT are facing challenges due to subdued demand at present, we anticipate a turnaround, driven by expectations of a normal monsoon and increased US demand following the Fed’s rate cut. However, the focus is on large caps, as the premium valuation of Midcaps could have a hiccup in the short to medium-term.”

    With improving asset quality, the SCB GNPA ratio is projected to improve from the expected 2.5%-2.7% in FY24 to 2.1%-2.4% by FY25 end. At these levels, GNPA figures would have reached the long-term levels prior to the pre-AQR levels. Additionally, credit costs are estimated to remain benign. However, downside risks include any material weakening of asset quality due to elevated interest rates, impact of regulatory changes, a tighter liquidity environment and global issues.

    Stock Market Live Today: Pre-MPC quote by Deepak Agrawal of Kotak Mahindra AMC

    RBI has undone the stealth tightening by actively managing the liquidity in the system and the average call rates are now close to the repo rate. Strong growth in FY 24 and strong growth projections for FY 25, gives leeway to RBI to wait for actual monetary easing in advanced economies. With 1 year forward real rates upwards of 2%, based on FY 25 inflation forecast, there is a case to change the monetary policy stance to “neutral”, since the stealth tightening undertaken from 2nd Quarter of FY 2024 being undone, RBI may keep rates unchanged and continue with “withdrawal of accommodation” monetary policy stance.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Outlook: Emkay Global: Information Technology: FY24 to end on a weak footing; recovery hope shifted to H2FY25

    Subpar growth should persist in Q4 as muted demand trends continue on account of weak discretionary spending and cautious behavior by clients, amid uncertain macros. Margins should remain steady despite weak revenue growth, as companies optimize costs and tighten discretionary spending. The expectations of slower and shallower rate cuts may delay recovery for IT companies. Global companies such as ACN, CTSH, and CAP have also guided for muted growth, particularly during H1CY24, with recovery expected towards the end of CY24. Macro uncertainties, cautious spending behavior by clients, and slower start to the year should be factored in the guidance of INFY and HCLT, in our view. We expect INFY and HCLT to guide for 3-6% and 4-7% in CC growth YoY, respectively. WPRO should guide for -1 to +1% growth in Q1FY25. We have cut FY24-26E EPS for our coverage universe by 0-8%, accounting for the delay in recovery. The NIFTY IT index has corrected ~8% over the last 1M, also underperforming the broader markets by ~9%, as the market starts factoring-in this slower recovery. Our pecking order is INFO, HCLT, TECHM, WPRO, LTIM, and TCS among Tier-1 companies and CYL, ECLX, FSOL, and ZOMATO among mid-sized players.

    TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 625

    We recently met Gaurav Kapoor, CFO at APTY. Key takeaways: a) domestic demand is currently weaker than expected/historical averages; replacement is showing good signs, though OE demand is muted; exports showing signs of pick-up; b) recent spike in RM coincided with price cuts (on select SKUs, marginal at portfolio level); will consider taking hikes, though gradually; Q1 RM cost hike would be 4% plus; Q2 would see full impact if RM remains at high levels; c) RM spike seems not driven by fundamentals and, thus, may cool off; d) capacity utilization is at comfortable levels of ~80%; expect to inch towards mid-80s; e) structurally, the margin band should improve and gradually get delinked to underlying commodities with rising share of high-margin SUV tyres. We retain BUY on APTY with an unchanged TP of Rs625 at 16x FY26E P/E.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: MNCL Research: Kirloskar Ferrous Industries Ltd. (KFIL): PCI started at Koppal, cost savings and increase in productivity starts in 1QFY25

    Mcap: Rs75.9bn; CMP: Rs544: TP: Rs700: Rating: BUY

    What happened: KFIL has started Pulverised Coal Injection at both the mini blast furnace at Koppal on 29th March 2024. Capex incurred for the PCI equipment was Rs500mn. 

    Our view:

    1. PCI should instantly lead to reduction in consumption of coke and increase in productivity of the blast furnaces starting 1QFY25. However, cost savings will reach its full potential when pulverised coal will be infused along with oxygen. KFIL has planned to set up the oxygen plant in Jun/July’24.

    2. We expect annual cost savings post full ramp up of coal infusion (i.e. 110kgs) along with oxygen plant to be ~Rs400mn/ Rs800/tonne savings (on current coke prices) from the Koppal furnaces.

    3. We expect at least 50-70ktonnes of capacity to be debottlenecked on full infusion of pulverised coal. 

    4. All of these are already in our estimates. With coking coal price now dropping to US$264/tonne CNF India, we expect Hiriyur blast furnace to restart within ~1 month. This should lead to both volume growth and cost savings in the 1QFY25 nos. Any positive news on the iron ore mine will be additional trigger for the margins. Remain positive on KFIL.
