    Stock Market Live Today: Sensex scaling 75,000 today with context from covid-19 lows

    Sensex scaling 75,000 today with context from covid-19 lows. The index is up 190% in four years. What fuelled the rally and what should an investor do now?

    Here is the view from Arvinder Singh Nanda, Senior Vice President, of Master Capital Services Ltd

    In the fourth quarter, the anticipated corporate earnings have been a driving force behind the recent market momentum. Despite notable increases in the prices of gold, crude oil, and metals, investors are witnessing an upward trend in equity markets, and there are expectations of a Federal Reserve rate cut. Investors may consider locking in partial profits while keeping a hold approach.

    Government policies and reforms have played a crucial role in fostering a stable environment conducive to market growth. Measures aimed at stimulating the economy, coupled with a focus on digitalization and infrastructure development, have attracted substantial investments. The growing involvement of retail investors, combined with sustained interest from foreign institutional investors, highlights the widespread confidence in India’s growth story.

    Stock market live updates: Swarnendu Bhushan, Co. Head of Research, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt. Ltd.

    Specialty chemical companies within our coverage are anticipated to report another challenging quarter, with 8/28/38% YoY drop in Rev/EBITDA/PAT. These declines are primarily attributed to sustained demand pressure and reduced realization stemming from Chinese dumping. However, we anticipate a modest improvement on a sequential basis for most companies within our universe, as the destocking nears completion and some gradual improvement in the realization is witnessed for a few chemicals. Despite this short-term relief, the chemical sector is expected to face continued strain. This is largely due to China’s ongoing capacity expansions and the anticipated increase in capacity utilization within the EU27, which will further dampen demand and prices.

Central banks around the world implemented interest rate cuts, while governments enacted fiscal stimulus packages to bolster their economies during the Covid-19 crisis. This strategy proved effective, leading to a robust economic recovery in India. Currently, India boasts the fastest-growing economy globally, with a promising future fuelled by political stability.

    Stock market live news: Elara Securities’ take on agri-input companies

    Subdued Q4; La Nina to lift prospects

    Channel inventory remains key overhang

    High channel inventory in the domestic market, water deficiency in South India, adverse nutrient-based subsidy (NBS) and continued inventory destocking globally have led to a subdued Q4 for agrochemicals and fertilizer companies. Rabi sowing as on 2 February was flat YoY at 71mn hectares, but agrochemicals and fertilizer placements have been weak, given existing high channel inventory.

    Low consumption, high inventory plague agrochemicals space

    Water deficiency in Karnataka has led to less sowing in catchment areas of Krishna and Tungabhadra rivers. In Telangana, chili crop damage due to a cyclone in December has slowed crop spraying, which resulted in lower fungicide demand in Q4. Pan-India wheat sowing was up 1%, but less yellow rust infestation led to a decline in demand for fungicide. The cumin crop business saw good growth in Rajasthan while potato crop protection business was average. Therefore, high channel inventory persists for most companies as we enter into the next Kharif season. Among our coverage universe, aggregate top line, EBITDA and PAT are likely to decline by 23%, 47% and 83%, respectively. Ex-UPL, we expect aggregate top line to rise by 6%, EBITDA by 30% and PAT by 33%, driven by PI Industries and Bayer CropScience.

    Fertilizers: high channel inventory leads to deferral of purchases

    The adverse NBS subsidy and subdued demand prevail in Q4, and the indicative channel inventory at end-February was ~6.9mn tonne for urea and 5.2mn tonne for complex fertilizer. The current channel inventory was up 76% and 117% for urea and complex fertilizer, respectively, from the levels in February 2022 when the Russia-Ukraine War started. The comfortable channel inventory situation has led to more just-in-time purchases of fertilizers by the trade channel and farmers. We expect top line to decline by 24% for three companies under our coverage, with EBITDA growth of 20% & PAT growth of 7%.

    El Nino weakens; La Nina to set in

    El Nino is nearing its end and La Nina is likely to set in this Monsoon, according to the Bureau of Meteorology, Australia. We believe La Nina will be positive for domestic agrochemicals as well as fertilizer companies as better Monsoon will lead to higher volume growth.

    Outlook: growth trajectory to set from Q1FY25

    While Q4 is likely to remain soft, we are positive about the prospects of domestic agri-input companies from FY25, due to expectations of a better Monsoon and higher declared NBS subsidy in H1FY25. However, we remain cautious about companies with higher exports as demand is still fragile in the international markets. We are negative on Coromandel International and Paradeep Phosphates in the short term, due to expectations of a weak Q4 results. BYRCS, PI, CRIN and SUMICHEM are our preferred picks from a long-term perspective.

    Stock market live news: Emkay Global’s take on logistics sector

    Muted quarter in the offing

    Despite seasonality, we expect our coverage companies to report a lackluster performance in Q4FY24, as proxy indicators (GST e-way bill data and NETC) suggest weak demand trends continuing from Q3. With the recent diesel rate cuts (₹2/ltr), the ability of surface operators to improve realizations takes a back seat in H1FY25, albeit alleviating some margin pressures especially for VRL. 

    The prolonged holiday period, especially in Mar-24, and intense competition in the B2B express industry is expected to weigh on the volume trajectory of TCI Express and Blue Dart Express. We expect Delhivery to continue ramping up volumes in its PTL business, as it continues to regain lost volumes since its Spoton fiasco. 

    B2C volumes are likely to remain muted sequentially, owing to seasonality (Q3 is the strongest quarter for the B2C industry). Management commentary on demand recovery in FY25 as well as competitive intensity are key observables, in our view, as we cut our FY25/26 sales estimates by 3-6% (for coverage universe). Tepid volume growth and muted realizations lead to a steeper cut in our FY25/26 EBITDA estimates (8-12%), resulting in downward revision of Dec-24E TP for VRL Logistics (BUY; TP: ₹800/sh now; ₹850 earlier), TCI Express (ADD; TP: ₹1,250/sh now; ₹1,400 earlier), and Blue Dart Express (REDUCE; TP: ₹6,350/sh now; ₹7,000 earlier).

    Stock market live news: CareEdge’s take on life insurance sector

    Individual segment growth continues to be led by bancassurance Channel

    The Indian life insurance sector has been growing at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 11% over the past few years, which is faster than the average global growth rate. 

    The prime drivers of this growth include the entry of private players in the industry, a supportive regulatory environment, a substantial increase in group insurance products, product and process innovations, customisation, along with development of strong distribution channels including bancassurance in the individual insurance segment.

    Indian life insurance has a top-heavy market structure with the top five players holding over 80% market share and the remaining companies making up a long tail.

    There has been a shift in the channel mix from the earlier agency-focused model to a more diversified distribution mix with digital channels coming to the fore. Direct Selling is the largest channel in group business.

    Meanwhile, even though the agency channel continues to be the largest segment in the individual business, bancassurance has grown rapidly to account for a 33% share.

    Companies are expected to simplify the life insurance purchase experience and overall digital enablement further across the distribution channels. Further, with the planned introduction of Bima Sugam, distribution channels may face a disruptive period as it would be spread across the entire value chain enabling companies to serve consumers at potentially lower costs.

    In FY25, the New Business Premium is expected to grow off a low base as companies tweak their plans in the aftermath of the new tax regime. CareEdge Ratings expects the life insurance industry to continue to grow at 11-13% over a three-to-five-year horizon driven by group products, individual pension, and life cover products along with supportive regulations, rapid digitalisation, effective distribution, and improving customer services.

    However, fraud and lapse ratio are some of the key challenges.

    Share market live updates: Credit-deposit ratio reaches decadal high, says CareEdge

    Credit offtake continued to grow, increasing by 20.2% year-on-year (y-o-y) to reach ₹164.3 lakh crore, for the fortnight ending March 22, 2024. This rise can continue to be attributed to the impact of HDFC’s merger with HDFC Bank along with the growth in personal loans. If we exclude the impact of the merger, credit grew at 16.3% y-o-y for the fortnight compared to last year’s growth of 15.0%. Sequentially credit grew by 0.7%.

    Meanwhile, the outlook for bank credit offtake continues to remain positive.

    Deposits too grew by 13.5% y-o-y for the fortnight (including the merger impact) and reached ₹204.8 lakh crore as on March 22, 2024, driven by growth in time deposits. Excluding the merger impact, growth stood at 12.9%. Sequentially deposits grew by 0.3%. 

    Deposit growth is expected to improve compared to earlier periods as banks shore up their liability franchise and ensure that deposit growth does not constrain credit offtake.

    The Short-term Weighted Average Call Rate (WACR) stood at 6.85% as of March 29, 2024, compared to 6.78% on March 31, 2023, due to liquidity and pressure on short-term rates.

    Stock market live updates: Asian stocks rise, bond yields steady at 2024 high

    Stocks in Asia climbed Tuesday after US benchmarks saw sluggish trading and Treasuries kicked off the week on the back foot ahead of key inflation data, per a Bloomberg report. 

    Benchmark equity indexes gained in South Korea and Australia. Futures in Hong Kong also pointed higher. US 10-year yields steadied after rising to the highest since November, coming within striking distance of the psychologically important 4.5% level. Traders’ conviction on three quarter-point rate cuts from the Federal Reserve this year is quickly dissipating, with markets now favouring just two reductions, the report added.
