    Stock market live updates: Here’s what Shrikant Chouhan, Head Equity Research, Kotak Securities, said on market trends

    “Today, the benchmark indices witnessed profit booking at higher levels, the Nifty ends 161 points lower while the Sensex was down by 617 points. Among Sectors, Media index shed over 3 percent whereas some buying interest were seen in selective Pharma and Healthcare stocks. Technically, after a muted opening the market consistently witnessed selling pressure at higher levels. On daily charts, the index has formed bearish candle, which indicates temporary weakness is likely to continue in the near future. 

    “However, the short-term texture of market is still in to the positive side. We are of the view that, as long as the market is trading below 22425/73800 the weak sentiment is likely to continue. Below which, the market could slip till 22250-22000/73200-73000. On the flip side, technical pullback possible only after dismissal of 22425/73800. Above 22425/73800, the market could retest the level of 22500-22525/74000-74200. Contra traders can take long bet near 22000/73000 with strict 35/100 points stop loss.”

    Stock Market Live Today: OPENING BELL: Sensex and Nifty open flat amid mixed global cues, eyes on FPI trends

    On Monday, India’s Sensex and Nifty opened slightly up, influenced by mixed global cues. Analysts suggest investors will track foreign portfolio investors for market direction. The BSE Sensex rose by 21.12 points to 74,140.51, while the NSE Nifty increased by 15.45 points to 22,509. However, most Asian equities are facing downward pressure. 

    Manoj Purohit, Partner and leader—FS Tax, Tax and Regulatory Services, BDO India: “FPI inflows have shown a positive trend compared to the previous month. Thanks to the recent announcement of Q3 GDP numbers at 8.4 percent, the persistence performance of large Indian corporates is major factor in turning the tide green for the Indian equity market.”

    On the regulatory front, announcements such as the removal of UAE from the grey list and SEBI’s consultation paper for easing UBO disclosures norms for regulated FPIs have been the major catalysts to put India on the forefront of potential long-term investments for the foreign fraternity, he added.

    Following last Friday’s weak close of the US stocks, Asian stocks are under pressure, except for Chinese markets. Japan’s stocks are down over 2 per cent, while Australian equities are weak at about 1.5 per cent. However, Hong Kong and Chinese stocks are up by about 1-0.3 per cent even as Korean stocks edged down marginally.

    Ajit Mishra, SVP—Technical Research, Religare Broking Ltd, said: Apart from the scheduled macroeconomic data, the performance of the global indices will continue to offer cues over market direction. Currently, the US markets are seeing some profit taking after a steady uptrend for four months. That might result in intermediate volatility in our markets, too, especially at the open.

    Arvinder Singh Nanda, Senior Vice President of Master Capital Services, said the outlook for the market may depend upon major global and domestic economic data, US Fed rate decisions, foreign and domestic institutional investors’ investment patterns, global market trends, rupee movement against the dollar, crude oil inventories, and upcoming general elections.

    He added that the major economic data that will be focused on in the coming week are Japan’s and the UK’s GDP, the UK unemployment rate, US CPI Inflation numbers, industrial production data, and India’s CPI and WPI inflation figures, Industrial production, and manufacturing output.

    Stock market updates today: Silver firm at $24.30

    Silver maintained steady, supported by a weaker dollar and yields, as the latest US jobs report provided some leeway for the Fed to begin cutting interest rates this year. While nonfarm payrolls outperformed estimates in February, they were sharply revised downward in January and December. Furthermore, the jobless rate rose to its highest level in two years, and pay growth slowed more than anticipated. Fed Chair Powell previously signalled that monetary easing might begin soon, but further evidence of inflation returning to the 2% target is required. Over the week, the metal was expected to rise by more than 5%.

    Stock market live updates: Agrochemicals -- Green shoots  

    Elara Securities

    Domestic space to drive recovery

    The agri-input industry (agrochemicals and fertilizers) has been in the doldrums for the past 12 months, driven by global destocking of agrochemicals, adverse Monsoon in India and non-remunerative subsidy regime for the domestic fertilizer industry. While global demand for agrochemicals continues to be weak, we expect green shoots to emerge for domestic agrochemicals and fertilizer companies. Hence, we expect a recovery in the agri input space, primarily driven by the domestic sector. Green shoots would emerge, given 1) a steadily weakening the El Nino phenomenon, and 2) better nutrient-based subsidy (NBS) for the domestic fertilizer industry. Hence, we prefer India-focused companies, such as Dhanuka Agritech (DAGRI IN), Bayer CropScience (BYRCS IN), Sumitomo Chemicals (SUMICHEM IN) and Coromandel International (CRIN IN)

    Azad Engineering (Azad) has received an order from Nuovo Pignone Srl (part of Baker Hughes’ Industry & Technology business) for the supply of high-complex and critical components for the Oil & Gas (O&G) sector. We believe that this is significant as it: 1) deepens Azad’s presence in O&G; 2) potentially could translate into adjacent revenue streams; and 3) would likely keep earnings growth momentum. In our view, this is the second major order in Q4FY24 after Rolls-Royce for defence engines and signifies that the development efforts made over several years are now getting monetised. We also believe that there is a better possibility of our FY26E EPS of INR 20 being achieved; hence, we raise

    Stock market updates today: Life Insurance New Business – Feb ’24: Robust show by the industry

    Emkay Global

    NIFTY 50: 22,494

    The Life Insurance sector logged a robust 18.1% Retail APE growth for Feb-24, driven by strong 20.4% growth in the private sector, while seeing LIC’s growth improving to 13.3%. On the back of resilient growth in Feb-24, the industry witnessed 9.2% Retail APE growth for YTDFY24, with the private sector growing 13.1% and LIC growing 2%. The number of individual policies sold during Feb-24 grew 9.2% for the industry, while policy growth for private players was 16.1% and stood at 6.3% for LIC, YoY. While Retail APE growth in the private sector was largely led by growth in the number of individual policies sold, LIC’s premium growth is likely driven by a mix of growth in policies and average ticket size. On an overall APE basis, the industry clocked in a strong 25.8% growth, with the private sector growing 24.7% and LIC registering 27.7% growth for Feb-24. The sturdy growth in APE was driven by 58% growth in Group APE for the industry during Feb-24, backed by a solid 62% growth in LIC’s Group APE and 52% growth led by the private sector. Among listed players, Max Life reported a healthy 34.4% Retail APE growth in Feb-24, bolstered by ~25% growth in number of individual policies sold. IPRU Life continued its growth momentum at 33.9% Retail APE growth for Feb-24, while HDFC Life and SBI Life noted a robust 27.8% and 25.8% Retail APE growth, respectively. While the industry is seeing strong growth momentum in Feb-24, it is likely to note some growth moderation in Mar-24 versus bumper sales in Mar-23 owing to taxation changes. Further, Mar-24 growth for individual players would largely be contingent on how strong growth was in Mar-23. Given the conducive demography and economy, we remain positive on the medium-term growth outlook for the sector. With attractive valuations, Life Insurance stocks continue to offer a favorable risk-reward balance.

For the industry, Individual WRP grew 18.0% YoY in Feb’24 (a three-year CAGR of 11.1%) vs. 15.0% YoY in Jan’24. During Apr-Feb’24, private players’ WRP grew 9.2% YoY.

    - Among listed players, HDFCLIFE (including Exide merger) posted a growth of 27.8% YoY in Feb’24 (a three-year CAGR of 20.5%). SBI Life clocked a strong growth of 25.8% YoY in Feb’24. Bajaj Allianz/MAXLIFE/IPRULIFE recorded 34.2%/34.4%/33.9% YoY growth.

    - Individual WRP for LIC grew 13.3% YoY in Feb’24 (+6.6% YoY in Jan’24). Over Apr-Feb’24, Individual WRP for LIC was flat YoY.

    - After reporting a strong growth in Mar’23 aided by the taxation on INR0.5m+ premium (implemented from Apr’23), the industry witnessed a relatively muted performance over Apr-Jan’24. For the month of Feb’24, the industry reported stellar growth led by new product launches particularly in annuities and pension segments. For Mar’24, given a strong base, we expect industry to witness a decline. Nevertheless, SBILIFE will continue to report a robust performance on a modest base of Mar’23 and continues to be our preferred pick in the space

    Stock market updates today: GAIL (INDIA): Decarbonization, widening gas penetration remain focus areas

    (GAIL IN, Mkt Cap USD15b, CMP INR189, TP INR215, 15% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    - We visited the Vijaipur plant of GAIL (I) and were joined by senior management from the company, including Shri R K Jain, Director Finance.

    - The management highlighted two futuristic projects, which form the cornerstone of the net zero and gas penetration strategies; (a) the first entails a 4.3tpd green hydrogen project, key to achieving decarbonization objectives and marking a significant milestone in the company’s pursuit of a long-term target of 20% hydrogen blending in natural gas, (b) GAIL (I) also highlighted the small scale LNG project (SSLNG), which the management believes would be instrumental in improving LNG availability in underpenetrated areas.

    - We remain positive on GAIL (I) as the capex cycle unwinds. The company has continued to explore new avenues for investments such as green hydrogen, SSLNG, and even coal to gas/chemicals. At ~11x FY26 P/E and the current dividend yield of ~2%, we believe valuations remain reasonable. We retain a BUY rating on the stock.

    Stock market updates today: Ethos by Emkay Global

    TEPA/Favre Leuba offer huge upside; outperforming retail peers

    TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 2,850

    Moats and macros are weaving favorable tales for Ethos, given visible growth outperformance and upside from the signed Trade and Economic partnership agreement (TEPA)/ramp-up of own-brand Favre Leuba (FL). The signed TEPA offers elimination of the 22% custom duty gradually, in 7 annual instalments. We believe most of the benefits should be shared by retailers and brands, as consumer pricing is broadly akin to global pricing. Our bear/bull case analyses suggest 20%/50% TP upside. Along with this, ramp-up of FL on target lines (35% CAGR) has potential to raise our TP by another 10%. As regards execution, outperformance is continuing as Ethos has noted ~30% topline growth in 9M vs. sub-10% for other categories like QSR, Apparel, and Footwear. Ethos has also provided best-in-class medium-term outlook of 25% topline CAGR, backed by share gains in new watch retail and faster growth in pre-owned/other luxury categories/FL. Increase in GST slab from the current 18% could partly offset gains from the custom duty reduction. We retain Buy
