    Indian shares rise on boost from IT, Adani group stocks

    Nifty 50 and Sensex rose on Wednesday, led by gains in IT companies ahead of quarterly results and boosted by a jump in some Adani group stocks on the conglomerate’s plan for a $24 billion investment.

    The blue-chip NSE Nifty 50 gained 0.34% to 21,618.70 points, while the S&P BSE Sensex added 0.38% to 71,657.71. Both the benchmarks lost about 0.5% each, before reversing gains in the final hour.

    IT stocks rose 0.5%. Market leaders TCS and Infosys are due to report quarterly results on Thursday, kicking off the earnings season in earnest.

    While their results are expected to be subdued due to weak spending by key U.S. clients, the forecasts will be in focus. In that regard, U.S. inflation data on Thursday is key. A soft print will likely fortify bets of a rate cut in March, making stocks generally, and IT companies in particular, attractive.

    The overall earnings season is critical with valuations at all-time highs. The Nifty 50’s PE ratio (price-to-earnings) is 22.6 times one-year forward earnings, well above the five-year average of 21.6.

    Currency Market Live Updates: Rupee extends rising streak into sixth day on dollar inflows

    The Indian rupee recouped early losses to end higher for a sixth consecutive session on likely foreign inflows.

    The rupee settled at 83.0350 against the U.S. dollar, its highest closing level since Dec. 15, against its close of 83.1150 in the previous session.

    The local unit opened lower and hit an intraday low of 83.18 earlier in the day, before rising to an over three-week high of 82.98 in the session.

    This was due to dollar selling by a large UK-based bank, according to three traders. These were likely external commercial borrowing inflows, they said.

    “Dollar inflows have kept the rupee the top performer among Asian currencies,” Dilip Parmar, a foreign exchange research analyst at HDFC Securities, said.

    “We will have to see if the move is sustainable given considering how the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) has absorbed such inflows in the past.”

    Share Market Live Updates: Indian HRC prices continue to lag behind, says Prabhudas Lilladher’s Tushar Chaudhari

    Metals & Mining - Tushar Chaudhari - Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd:

    Weekly Update – Indian HRC prices continue to lag behind

    Indian benchmark HRC prices remain unchanged at USD Rs 54,600/t. which is at a one-year low. The spot spreads have contracted further 2% WoW to Rs 18,468/t owing to rise in coking coal prices. 

    Chinese and European HRC prices have risen ~1% WoW to USD 580/t and USD 635/t respectively after being stable for a month. Chinese spot spreads have risen 7% WoW to USD 75/t from USD 71/t. European spot spreads have risen 4% WoW to USD 130/t. Uptick in steel price and WoW decline in iron ore prices have more than offset the increase in coking coal prices.

    Coking coal prices have inched up 2.2% WoW at USD 335/t while iron ore 62% grade declined 2.3% over the same period. The Indian Govt. plans to set up a state backed consortium for coking coal imports which remains volatile due to supply shortages. One of the criteria is to diversify supplies coming from Australia that accounts for more than half of the coal imports.

    On import parity basis, global steel prices continue to trade at a premium to Indian steel prices which incentivizes domestic companies to take price hikes. After a quarter which was marred by higher imports and state elections, steel companies shall be able to take price hikes to compensate for the recent surge seen in coking coal prices. JSP, HNDL & NMDC are our Top Picks.

    Stock Market Live Updates: CRISIL’s outlook on near-term rates


    One-month view

    In January, domestic G-sec yields are likely to remain stable. Low crude price and robust foreign portfolio investment (FPI) flows into the debt market will act supportive. An elevated December CPI inflation number could exert some upward pressure.

    Three-month view

    The 10-year Gsec is expected to soften through March supported by fiscal consolidation, downside to oil prices as global demand softens and continued foreign capital flows.

    Framework for outlook

    CRISIL provides its outlook on key benchmark rates for different debt classes — 10-year G-secs, state-development loans (SDLs), and corporate bonds (CBs) — based on statistical models and inputs from our in-house experts. We also incorporate our views on policy expectations, macroeconomic outlook, key events (local and global), and market factors (liquidity and demand/supply).

    Commodities Market Today: Pellet production to reach an all-time high in FY24; profitability  to remain supported by lucrative exports in H2 FY2024: ICRA

    Pellet production, after increasing by 16% YoY in 8M FY2024, is likely to reach an all-time high of 85-90 million tonnes (mt) in FY2024 supported by strong domestic demand for steel and YoY pick up in pellet exports. Pellet exports (after having impacted in FY2023 due to the imposition of export duty) have picked up in 8M FY2024 (owing to low base), though the improvement was curtailed due to muted demand from China in H1 FY2024. With demand improving in China in recent months and an increase in international pellet prices (leading to higher contribution), exports have now turned lucrative for Indian merchant pellet exporters. This also provides an attractive opportunity for Indian merchant player to increase their share of exports in the global market especially in the backdrop that Brazil, the largest pellet exporter globally, has not yet ramped up its production (following curtailed operations) and the supplies from Ukraine, another dominant exporter, continue to remain constrained, said ICRA.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Verizon deal ramp-up to drive HCL Tech’s revenue growth, says Stoxbox’s Dhruv Mudaraddi

EBIT margins are also expected to improve owing to cost efficiencies, seasonal strength in the high-margin P&P business, and forex benefits. However, this improvement will be partly offset by wage hikes, furloughs, and the costs associated with large deal ramp-up. Further, we would be looking out for comments on recovery of ERS demand after sharp decline, updates on large deals won in past quarters, and update on the acquisition strategy in and capital allocation policy.

    Stock market live updates: Preview for TCS Ltd and Infosys Dhruv Mudaraddi, Research Analyst, Stoxbox

    Tata Consultancy Services Ltd. Q3FY24 Result Preview

    “We expect TCS’ Q3FY24 revenue to be flat sequentially as growth was tepid due to ongoing weaknesses in discretionary spending and furloughs during the quarter. However, this downturn is expected to be partially mitigated by the positive impact of previously secured deals that are now ramping up. Margins, on the other hand, are anticipated to witness a slight expansion QoQ, driven by the easing of supply-side constraints, operating leverage, and currency exchange benefits. We also expect the deal win momentum to sustain, particularly driven by cost optimization initiatives. Further, we would be looking out for comments on the demand outlook in the US (BFSI sector), UK, and Europe, any signs of recovery in discretionary projects, and margin outlook.”

    Infosys Ltd. Q3FY24 Result Preview

    “We expect Infosys’ Q3FY24 revenue to marginally decline QoQ owing to a challenging quarter primarily influenced by sustained weak demand, the absence of certain one-time sales and the impact of furloughs. The absence of mega deals is expected to moderate deal momentum in 3Q. EBIT margins are also anticipated to decrease slightly QoQ, attributed to the impact of two months of wage hikes in the quarter and the absence of one-time sales in 2Q, partially offset by lower pass-through sales and currency benefits. Further, we would be looking out for comments on the demand outlook in the BFSI and Hi-Tech verticals (currently under pressure), feedback on its clients’ CY24 budget, deal ramp-up visibility and margin levers.”

    Elara Securities:

    Expect Elara coverage universe (239 companies) to see muted sales growth of 1.7% YoY in Q3E, owing to oil marketing companies (OMCs) seeing lower crude prices compared with prior quarter. Ex-OMCs, sales growth for our universe still looks tepid at 7.6%. Despite this, bottomline growth may be healthy at 15.4% YoY, primarily due to expected earnings expansion in Auto, Banks ,Consumer Discretionary and Cement. Earnings for IT may decline ~3% YoY as furloughs weigh down on operating margins.

    V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services.

    “The market is moving up and down without a directional trend. Up moves are countered with selling and down moves are responded with buying. A trend might emerge in the coming days in response to Q3 results.

    There is an important dichotomy in the market which has implications for investors. Segments like defence and railways have run up too much too fast based on expectations triggered by order inflows. It will take time for these orders to be executed and reflect on the bottom lines. On the other hand there is value in segments like banking, particularly in high-quality private sector majors. But this value is not getting reflected in the price. This is a short-term aberration which will correct in the medium to long term. Here patience is the key.

    Q3 results starting tomorrow will be keenly watched. Regarding IT the management commentary will be more important than the results which will be tepid.”

    Stock Market Live Today: OPENING BELL: Sensex, Nifty open weak amidst global market struggle, await big corporate results

    India’s benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, displayed a weak opening on Wednesday, lacking definitive positive cues. Despite Tuesday’s Nifty rebound signifying bullish resilience, analysts highlighted the dependence on global market trends to bolster the next upward move. Early trade saw the BSE Sensex slipping by 47.73 points to 71,338.48, while the NSE Nifty decreased by 9.65 points, settling at 21,535.20.

    Global markets, particularly led by US stocks, grappled with directional uncertainty.’s Kyle Rodda discussed equity valuations, driven by the expectation of aggressive interest rate cuts. He emphasized the consequential impact of softer inflation data and the ‘Powell pivot’ on financial conditions and market multiples, foreseeing imminent rate cuts as a strong support for stock indices.

    Attention also centred on forthcoming quarterly results, with major corporations like Infosys, Tata Consultancy Services, HDFC Asset Management, and 5Paisa slated for December 11 releases. YES Securities’ Q3 preview projected a potential 8.8% year-on-year topline growth, hinting at a modest rebound in economic activity. While EBITDA margins showed promising expansion, PAT growth surged impressively by 27% year-on-year basis.

    Meanwhile, equities across the Asia-Pacific region, except for Japanese markets, witnessed a downturn of around 0.5%. The US stock market closed mixed, demonstrating an absence of a clear directional trend; Nasdaq showed gains, while Dow Jones and S&P-500 ended in the red.

    Rodda cautioned about potential market volatility amid the Federal Reserve’s projections for an economic soft landing, emphasizing the probable need for rate cuts. Mishra advised caution, urging limited trades and hedged bets amidst uncertain market shifts. The outlook highlighted a reliance on global cues for market stability before a sustained upward trend could potentially take hold.

    Amit Anwani – Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd

    Oct-Dec’23 Earnings Preview – Robust inflows & execution to drive healthy Q3

    We expect our capital goods coverage universe to report healthy performance in Q3FY24 led by 1) continued execution of strong opening order books, 2) robust demand/orders/volumes in domestic market, and 3) traction in key export markets such as Middle East, Americas, Africa etc. Overall, we expect Revenue/Adj. PAT growth of ~16.6%/22.0% YoY (13.5%/14.1% YoY ex-L&T). Margin guidance, European demand outlook, order/enquiry pipeline and impact of elections on domestic demand/orders will be key monitorables. Our top picks are L&T, Siemens, ABB, Triveni Turbine, and Praj Industries.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Updates: Kotak on Specialty chemicals - Q3-FY24 preview: One more quarter of pain  

    3QFY24 is likely to have been another painful quarter for both chemical intermediate makers and crop-protection chemical companies. We see high risk of earnings downgrades for several companies including NFIL, RALI, SRF and UPLL (versus KIE estimates) and ATLP, DN and TTCH (versus consensus). Given rich valuations and recent strength in stock prices, we remain cautious on the sector and see risks of disappointing returns from most leading stocks.

    Customer destocking, unfavorable Rabi season to hurt crop chemicals sector

    3QFY24 was likely a difficult quarter for the crop-protection chemicals industry, with exports likely hurt more than domestic sales amid continued destocking by customers. That said, even the domestic Rabi season was challenging amid low water levels, elevated channel inventories and intense competition. Some companies again cut prices during the quarter; margins likely remained under pressure. UPLL may be the worst-hit amid customer destocking and pricing pressures. RALI is also likely to report sharply lower earnings owing to a collapse in export revenues. GOAGRO will likely report a subdued quarter, with strength in its domestic crop protection business offset by continued agony at Astec. BYRCS’ earnings growth may once again be supported by lower employee costs, although revenue growth may be lackluster.

    No signs of recovery yet for chemical intermediate makers

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Updates:  Kotak Strategy: Privatisation of PSUs — the 3P challenges

    We find the Street’s hopes about privatization of PSUs quite misplaced given the issues of (1) policy, (2) practice and (3) price. (1) The government’s stated policy on privatization of PSUs, (2) practical issues seen in previous attempts to privatize PSUs and (3) high prices of PSUs should provide plentiful caution against making privatization as an investment thesis for PSUs.

    Sharp run-up in PSU stock prices; don’t bank on privatization

    We are not sure if the privatization thesis for PSUs is an ex ante reason for or a post facto justification for the sharp run-up in stock prices of PSUs in the past few months (see Exhibit 1). We are surprised by the privatization argument for PSUs in light of (1) stated policy of the government for PSUs, (2) practical challenges seen in the attempts to privatize BPCL, CCRI and (3) high prices (inflated valuations) of the PSUs with many PSUs trading at a large premium to their private sector counterparts, presumably the bidders for the PSUs

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Updates: Elara Securities India - Textiles - Mixed performance – Quarterly Preview

    Q3E to see 1.8% YoY revenue growth led by volume recovery…

    Expect Elara Textiles universe to post a revenue growth of 1.8% YoY (2.6% QoQ) in Q3FY24E, led by volume recovery on favorable base, which may be offset by price deflation. KPR Mill may lead the pack, with the sharpest increase of 8.4% YoY in revenue. Volume growth may be muted YoY for garment players, whereas spinning volumes may inch up. A sequential improvement in volumes is expected with orders kicking in from export markets, as India cotton prices turn favorable against international prices and domestic demand remains resilient. Q3E EBITDA may grow 19.9% YoY (up 5.1% QoQ), led by favorable cost structure compared with Q3FY23. Q3E APAT may improve 23.8% YoY (up 4.2% QoQ), percolating from EBITDA growth.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Updates: Elara Diet Report— Pharmaceuticals - Chronic strong; volume trends reversing

    As per Pharmatrac, a pharmaceuticals market research company, the domestic pharma market has grown at a better pace of 9.2% YoY in Dec 2023, after a poor show of just 2.9% YoY growth in Nov 2023. Volume growth was muted at 2.2% YoY. Thus, price remains the major driver. CY23 value growth at 6.8% (flat volume) is significantly below original expectations. This has reflected in most listed companies’ reported numbers as well.

    Our view

    We expect marginal improvement in growth rate in CY24/FY25 – volume growth will likely pick up while price increase will likely moderate. We continue to believe that the organic growth expectations built into the pharma stocks (which we believe is in 11-14% range) will disappoint. This could be a risk, specifically for companies with high domestic-business contribution to overall profits.

    Chronic therapies drive growth

    In Dec 2023, the pick-up was led by Cardiac (up 11.5% YoY), Anti-infectives (up 10.3% YoY), Gastro-intestinal (up 10.0% YoY), Pain (up 10.2% YoY) and Neurology (up 12.0% YoY). Anti-diabetics too saw decent growth of 8.9% YoY. Oncology continued with its strong performance, up 13.7% YoY, but is a smaller part of the overall pie.

    Volume growth stood at 0.8% in Q3FY23 vis-à-vis negative growth of ~4% in Q2FY23 and Q1FY23 led by healthy volumes in Chronic therapies, though partly negated by muted growth in Acute. Amongst therapies Anti-neoplastics grew 21% in Q3FY23. Value growth for Q3FY23 was driven by Anti-neoplastics, Cardiac, Respiratory and Anti-diabetic.

    Sun Pharma, Cipla, Torrent, Alkem and Glenmark grew in mid-high, single-digit percentage, in Dec 2023, as per data. Mankind Pharma, Zydus Lifesciences and Lupin grew in 10-15% range. Abbott, Ipca, Dr Reddy’s and Sanofi grew <10%. AWACS data does not usually correlate with companies’ reported numbers and should not be extrapolated to reported growth.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Recommendations: BNP Paribas on India Electrical Equipment

    - ‘Downgrade cycle fading; summer holds the key’ by Mr. Nirransh Jain, India Analyst - Consumer Durables 

    Sector outperformed Nifty 50 by c18% in CY23, but underperformed c6% ex-C&W - In aggregate, the India Consumer Durables sector outperformed the Nifty 50 index by c18% in CY23. Excluding the cables & wires (C&W) companies, however, the sector underperformed by c6% following cuts to the forward FY24/25E Bloomberg consensus earnings over the past 6-12 months. This is not a new dynamic with the sector (ex-C&W) underperforming over the last four years, attributed to inflation-led slowdown in discretionary demand, higher commodity prices, energy rating implementation and higher competitive intensity.

    · 3QFY24 preview: A mixed bag expected with trends similar to 2Q - Aggregate 2QFY24 revenue for the sector rose c12% y-y. However, the underlying trends were mixed. While C&W firms saw strong volume growth y-y, B2C firms continued to see softness in consumer demand, along with price erosion in the lighting segment and a shift in festive demand. Our channel checks (Some hits, some misses) suggest that these trends have been broadly maintained through 3QFY24, barring the festive period. We expect our coverage universe to post strong c14% y-y revenue growth and see the impact of the base effect on some companies due to channel filling/de-stocking in 3QFY23, especially for fans and refrigerators on the BEE rating change.

    · Demand tailwinds ahead; margins bottoming out; VOLT and HAVL remain our top picks - We continue to prefer the B2C companies within our coverage. While we expect competition to remain high, particularly across electric consumer durables (ECD) and white goods, the recovery in consumption demand and a pick up in real estate activities should drive a healthy offtake for the durables sector in 2024, along with margin recovery from the FY23 lows. We think that the sector’s earnings downgrade cycle is largely behind. While the B2B segment continues to show strong volume resilience, we believe that most of the optimism is priced in and offers limited upside potential. Factoring in our near-term expectations, we revise our estimates and roll forward valuations from Sep-25 to FY26 (multiples unchanged). Our TPs are raised by c2-11% but ratings are unchanged

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Outlook: BNP Paribas India on India Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare 

    Tausif Shaikh, India Analyst - Pharma and Healthcare

    Indian health ministry sets stricter GMP guidelines

    · A 12-month implementation time frame for smaller players: The latest guidelines is expected to come into force in six months for large manufacturers (with turnover >INR2,500m) and 12-months for smaller players (turnover <INR2,500m). The Indian pharmaceutical market is valued at cUSD50b with a near equal share of the domestic and exports market. We estimate the market share of top 50 players in the domestic market to be 80-90%. The ten pharma companies under our coverage have a combined export sales of USD14.3b, which is 57% of India’s pharma export. Given that a substantial share of revenue is derived from large players, who are largely compliant with GMP, we believe that the revised guidelines is unlikely to have a significant impact on the industry

    · Domestic focused companies to see greater benefit from the latest GMP revision. We believe the revision of Schedule M by the government is a positive step for IPM as it will ensure that the compliance standards match global quality standards. However, the implementation of the new norms would be challenging for smaller firms, which may lead to rise in near term capex and a permanent increase in operating costs. While the event is positive for the sector, we believe a larger benefit would be felt by companies which have a high exposure in the domestic market as small and new players, which have traditionally competed by launching drugs at a steep discount to incumbents, are likely to exit the market given the increase in compliance costs. In the near-term, they can rationalize their operating cost structure by lowering their MR count and marketing expenses, which also bodes well for larger players.

    Stock Market Live Today: Recommendations: QSR Preview: Emkay Global 

    LT view spurs a BUY on Sapphire; valuations outdo JUBI prospect

    Our long-term view on Indian QSRs remains constructive, but the ongoing slowdown has been prolonged vs. Street/our expectations. Despite a big sporting event, demand trends remained weak in Q3 as we expect muted pick-up in ADS sequentially vs. mid-to-high single digit pick-up historically (SSGs should be negative across QSRs). We factor-in normal seasonality here-on vs. pent-up demand earlier, leading to a 10-15% EBITDA cut across QSRs under our coverage. However, our DCF-based TP cut is relatively softer, as the long-term view remains intact, driving 3-23% increase in implied multiples (Refer to Exhibits 6-10, for key DCF assumptions). We expect the negative SSG to cause a 70-300bps EBITDA margin decline across players, despite benign RM-led 100-200bps gross-margin gains. We continue to like Sapphire/Westlife, for which we see a relatively faster recovery trend or valuation comfort. Our negative view on Jubi/Devyani is based on valuations exceeding growth prospects

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral outlook: Emkay Global: Information Technology Dec-23 Naukri JobSpeak Index: Another hushed month for hiring

    For Dec-23, Naukri’s JobSpeak Index was down 15.6% YoY/up 2.4% MoM. The index has now seen decline in nine of the twelve months in CY23 (on YoY basis). The slight uptick on MoM basis can be attributed to a favorable base effect owing to the festive season. The IT sector index reported a sharp drop of 21.5% YoY in Dec-23, and has now noted a decline for all months in the year – this reflects the persistent challenges faced by the IT sector, wherein muted demand has generated weak hiring trends in the last few quarters, in sync with the recent management commentary.

    Stock Market Live Today: Insights: A turbulent year for SEBI at SAT

    It was a rough year for the market regulator at the Securities Appellate Tribunal, with setbacks in key cases.

Both these orders were set aside by SAT citing the inappropriateness of unlawful ‘gains’ identified by SEBI for the purpose of disgorgement.
