    Stock Market Live Today: JM Financial on ASK Automotive: Leading in 2W braking systems, poised for growth

    JM Financial Institutional Securities 

    ASK Automotive (ASK) is the leading manufacturer of 2W brake shoe and drum braking systems with a combined ~50% market share. Despite being a late entrant, the company has emerged as a sizeable player in aluminium light-weighting components (ALP) and safety control cables (SCC) for the 2W segment, where it is gaining market share. This has been led by ASK’s a) in-house technical, design and engineering capabilities (using proprietary formulations) to develop new and customised solutions for its customers, and b) quality, cost and delivery focus given its close proximity to its customers. ASK has been consistently outperforming growth of the underlying 2W industry (by 10% CAGR over FY13-23) led by expansion in product portfolio, addition of new customers and increase in wallet share with existing customers. Backed by a) rising kit value in the ALP segment as the 2W/3W industry transitions to EVs, b) ramp-up of the 2W SCC business and c) expansion into PV and non-automotive segments by leveraging its capabilities, we believe ASK is well positioned to continue its healthy growth momentum. We expect ASK’s revenue / EPS to grow at 14% / 29% CAGR over FY24-26E primarily driven by increase in kit value from rising 2W/3W electrification further aided by strong momentum in non-auto exports and expansion into the PV segment. Healthy return ratios (Post-tax RoCE: ~20%) and strong FCF generation (INR 2.9bn during FY25-26E) provide comfort. We initiate coverage on ASK Automotive with a BUY rating and a TP of INR 375 (25x Mar’26E EPS), implying 23% upside. Any slowdown in electrification of domestic 2W/3W remains a key monitorable. High dependence on HMSI is a key risk.

    Commodities Market Live Today: Rahul Kalantri of Mehta Equities on crude oil

    Crude oil experienced significant price volatility and dropped following the Iranian missile attack on Israel, which ultimately caused less damage than initially feared. This decline was further compounded by the strength of the dollar index, which is currently trading at 5-month highs, surpassing the 106 mark once again and thereby limiting the upward movement of global commodities. Nevertheless, a statement from the Israeli army chief regarding potential retaliation against Iran provided some support for oil prices at lower levels. If tensions continue to escalate in the Middle East, it could certainly bolster crude oil prices. Expectations are for crude oil prices to maintain their volatility in today’s trading session. Support for crude oil is seen at $84.50–83.90, with resistance at $85.90-86.60 for today’s session. In terms of the INR, crude oil has support at Rs7,020-6,930 and resistance at Rs 7,210-7,290.

    Bullion Market Live Today: Rahul Kalantri of Mehta Equities on gold prices

    The prices of gold and silver underwent significant fluctuations and declines during the initial trading hours. However, escalating tensions in the Middle East sparked a surge in safe-haven demand for precious metals, leading gold and silver to rebound once again despite the dollar index showing strength. Heightened tensions between Israel and Iran instilled fear in global investors, prompting them to reduce positions in riskier assets and shift towards safe-haven assets. The negative sentiment in global equity markets further bolstered the appeal of gold and silver. Gold finds support at $2366-2348 with resistance at $2405-2422, while silver sees support at $28.40-28.20 and resistance at $28.90-29.12. In terms of INR, gold has support levels at Rs 71,980 and Rs 71,750, with resistance at Rs 72,480 and Rs 72,710. Silver’s support is pegged at Rs 83,140-82,380, with resistance at Rs 84,640 and Rs 85,280.

    Risk sentiment remains on the edge as the threat of Israel retaliation to Iran’s attacks looms despite its allies including US urging restraint. 

    China Q1 GDP came in better than expected at 5.3% yoy (exp 5%). March Industrial production and retail sales however missed estimates.

    Stock Market Live Today: Anand James of Geojit Financial on Nifty outlook

    The 22110 objective that we had started with is one stretch away. Though the fact that yesterday’s opening low defended a repeat attack towards close, will encourage bargain buying today, but we will look for a push above 22350 for upside confirmation. Inability to do so, or a direct fall below 21800 could confirm a break of bullish structure that had 23200 in the horizon, and line up 20300 instead, as the first objective for the bear move

    Stock Market Live Today: OPENING BELL: Indian markets slide on global concerns, Sensex below 73,000 mark

    Indian benchmark indices, the Sensex and Nifty, started the day on a weak note on Tuesday amid global uncertainty fueled by geopolitical tensions. The 30-share BSE Sensex declined by 564.51 points to 72,835.27 in early trading, while the NSE Nifty dropped 153.35 points to 22,119.15.

    Amit Goel, Co-Founder and Chief Global Strategist at Pace 360, said geopolitical uncertainty had triggered a sell-off across sectors, negatively impacting investor sentiment. 

    “However, Iran attacking Israel was well anticipated and discounted by global markets. We believe this attack will not result in any significant escalations in the Middle East. Hence, we do not see that as a major factor that could play out in the global markets,” he added. 

    However, as markets are overvalued and overstretched, valuations are rich. We advise investors to book their profits and refrain from investing, he advised investors due to a sizable correction in the markets. 

    Meanwhile, India’s goods exports hit a 12-month high of $41.68 billion in March, though it constituted a 0.67% decline from the corresponding month’s tally last year, while imports dropped 6% to $57.3 billion last month. 

    Aditi Nayar, Chief Economist, Head Research and Outreach, ICRA Ltd., on Trade Data, said: “Led by a larger YoY decline in merchandise imports vis-à-vis such exports, India’s merchandise trade deficit eased to an 11-month low of $15.6 billion in March 2024, while also trailing the levels seen in the year-ago month, amid a halving of gold imports and a fall in non-oil non-gold imports. This is expected to augur well for the current account number in Q4 FY2024, which may witness a small, transient surplus of ~$1-2 billion in the quarter.” 

    According to domestic brokerage Asit C Mehta, from a technical perspective, the index is consolidating in a rising channel pattern on the daily scale, while on the weekly scale, it has formed a shooting star pattern. “The lower boundary of the channel pattern is situated around 22,000 levels, making it a significant support level. Overall, we anticipate the index to trade within the range of 22,000 to 23,000 ahead of Q4FY24 earnings, with an immediate hurdle at 22,500.” 

    The Nifty Bank index closed the day in the negative zone, around 47,773 levels. Technically, the Bank Nifty index has formed a doji candlestick pattern on the weekly scale and maintained a position below the low of the doji candle, indicating short-term weakness. Short-term support levels for the Bank Nifty are observed at 47,000 and 46,400, with resistance levels at 48,000 and 49,060, it added. 

    Foreign portfolio investors sold a net Rs 3,268 crore worth of stocks on Monday, while domestic institutional investors remained net buyers for the fifth consecutive session. The Nifty 50 and S&P BSE Sensex have each declined by about 2% over the past two sessions from their record highs.

    Bullion Market Live Today: Silver gains to $28.66

    Silver climbed as US inflation remained stubbornly high and geopolitical uncertainties in the Middle East persisted. Beyond its traditional safe-haven reputation, silver had increasing physical demand, notably from China and India. The spotlight will now move to multiple Fed speakers this week for clues on the possible monetary policy path. Previously, sizzling economic data caused investors to lower their expectations for interest rate reduction by the regulator this year.

    Bullion Market Live Today: Gold up at $2382

    Gold prices surged as demand for safe havens was spurred by Iran’s assault on Israel, but the dollar’s strength hindered large gains. The main source of support for gold prices was Iran’s drone and missile assault on Israel over the weekend, which was alleged reprisal for an attack on an Iranian embassy in Syria. Meanwhile, investors awaited insights from several Federal Reserve officials’ talks slated for the week, hoping to get clarity on future policy moves. Consistently strong economic signs, such as rising inflation and strong retail sales, encouraged markets to revise their expectations for the timing and magnitude of Fed interest rate decreases this year. 

    Key economic data slated for release includes German WPI m/m, German ZEW Economic Sentiment from Euro Zone and Building Permits, Industrial Production m/m, Fed Chair Powell Speaks from US Zone.

    Stock Market Live Today: Senco Gold: Outperformance to bridge valuation gap vs. peers; maintain BUY

    Emkay Global

    TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 1,100

    The Senco stock reacted positively (+18% intra-day) on the back of a significant beat to our estimates and its SSG outperformance vs. listed jewelry peers in Q4/FY24. Senco delivered 30% retail growth in Q4 (vs. our expectation of 21%), helped by a robust 23%/19% SSG in Q4/FY24. For full-FY24, Senco has delivered 28% topline growth compared with ~20%/34% for TTAN/Kalyan. Network expansion has also been solid and in line with our expectations of 21 jewelry stores (16 COCO/5 FOFO) in FY24. Even after the strong run-up, valuations are at a significant discount to listed jewelry peers (Exhibit 6), despite its resilient growth execution historically (16%/20% revenue/PAT CAGR over FY15-24E) and similar medium-term growth prospects. An increasing studded mix should add to our estimate of ~20% topline growth and help deliver 23/27% EBITDA/PAT CAGR over FY24-26E. We raise our TP by 19% to Rs1,100/share, on the back of the 2-3% EPS change and ~15% increase in our TP multiple to 29x FY26E EPS. Continued execution and traction in non-East geographies offer an added re-rating upside

    Stock Market Live Today: INDIA STRATEGY | POLITICS: BJP’s 2024 manifesto promises policy continuity!

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    Prime Minister Narendra Modi unveiled the Sankalpa Patra (Manifesto) of the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), titled “Modi ki Guarantee 2024” for the 2024 Loksabha Elections. As per various opinion polls, the BJP is expected to retain power for the third consecutive term with a full majority. In this note we look at the key sector-wise takeaways from the manifesto that promises policy continuity with an overarching aim of making India the world’s third-largest economy without taking eyes off macroeconomic balance or succumbing to the lures of competitive populism. The manifesto reflects the confidence of the current dispensation to return to power and thus refrains from any meaningful freebies, which would have extracted a fiscal cost.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Recommendations: OIL & GAS: Iran-Israel conflict could lead to a supply crunch

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    - The conflict intensifies: The clash between Iran and Israel escalated significantly over the weekend, as Iran launched drone and rocket attacks on Israel. This conflict has, in turn, led to the expectation that crude oil, refining GRMs, and spot LNG prices could scale new highs in the near term. While our base case scenario remains that de-escalation efforts will likely control the crisis, in this note, we examine the implications for commodities and stocks if the crisis escalates further.

    - The Strait of Hormuz (SoH) remains critical for oil, refined products, and LNG: About 15/6mnbopd of crude oil/refined products flow through the SoH (i.e., 15% and 8% of global crude and refined product consumption, respectively), which Iran has threatened to block. Further, we note that ~20% of the global LNG trade moves via SoH, including almost all LNG exports from Qatar and the UAE.

    - Three key implications in the event of SoH blockade: 1) if Iran successfully enforces a complete or partial blockade of the SoH, we anticipate materially higher crude oil prices, refining GRM, and spot LNG prices; 2) while alternative routes do exist, they may only be able to accommodate a fraction (~7-8mnbopd of crude oil/refined products) of the volume currently passing through the SoH (~21mnbopd), and that too at elevated freight costs; 3) while investors focus on oil, we believe that spot LNG prices will witness even sharper escalation if the SoH is closed due to the absence of alternative routes

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: CELLO WORLD: Among the best in industry

    (CELLO IN, Mkt Cap USD2.1b, CMP INR823, TP INR1100, 34% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    Cello World (CELLO) is the most diversified consumerware company and one of the top players in majority of its business segments. In this report, we have analyzed CELLO’s position against key players in its fastest-growing business segment, glassware.

    - Since its foray into the consumer glassware segment in 2017, CELLO has quickly scaled up this business to generate revenue of INR2.8b vs. a total addressable market (TAM) of INR35b in FY23. The segment will be a key growth driver (26% CAGR over FY23-26) for the company amid evolving applications, capacity expansions in opalware and soda lime glassware, increase in SKUs, and import substitution.

    - Under the consumer glassware segment, opalware/soda lime glassware dominate, with TAM of ~INR14b/INR15b. While La Opala dominates the opalware category, CELLO is also catching up with recent capacity expansions in Daman. Moreover, CELLO is the only large branded player that is expanding in soda lime glassware (higher TAM), while other players are expanding in borosilicate glassware (TAM of ~INR4B).

    - Currently, La Opala dominates in terms of revenue growth (CAGR of 46% over FY21-23) and margins (EBIT margin of 33% in FY23). CELLO is not far behind (36% revenue CAGR; 23% EBIT margins). With a ramp-up of its soda lime glass capacity and achieving economies of scale, CELLO will be able to narrow the gap going ahead.

    - CELLO is currently trading at 34x FY26E EPS with RoE/RoCE of 32%/39% in FY26E. We believe that the company will be able to successfully scale up new businesses and expand SKUs and distribution reach in order to evolve as a leading brand in the respective segments. We reiterate our BUY rating with a TP of INR1,100 (premised on 45x FY26E EPS).

    Editorial. BJP manifesto retains development-welfare policy mix

    The BJP manifesto, bearing the unmistakeable imprimatur of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has an undertone of quiet confidence running through it. It focuses more on economy and governance issues than ideologically contentious ones, which is very welcome. The assurance is of ‘hitting the road up and running’ on winning a third term. The manifesto does not unveil extravagant plans that could compromise the fisc, perhaps because it feels they are not electorally necessary.
