    Acuité Ratings & Research comments on WPI Inflation

    “India’s wholesale inflation print still continues to be negative at -0.26% in Sep-23 albeit it has tightened from -4.18% in Jun-23 respectively. A rapid drop in the increased vegetable prices and overall benign wholesale food inflation that declined by 4.5% MoM, has helped to keep the WPI sequential trajectory at -0.6% MoM.

    One important trend in the WPI data is the reversal of the deflationary trend in manufactured products from Aug-23 with Sep-23 print at +0.4% MoM and such a trend is likely to continue, as reported by the last PMI Manufacturing Survey. Fuel and power inflation has also started to gain sequential momentum and stood at 2.3% MoM, given the sharp rise in the prices of crude oil since the middle of August. Core WPI continues to be in contraction but will be vulnerable to a migration to the positive zone in the near term.

    We expect WPI inflation to be in positive territory over the next few months, given healthy industrial and consumer demand and the backdrop of increasing prices of crude oil, cereals and pulses. This is set to be hold CPI inflation in the range of 5.0-5.5% over the next two quarters and not allow it to come down sharply. RBI MPC will have limited option but to wait and watch the price scenario till the end of the current fiscal.”

    Canada stir unlikely to hit specialised education loan NBFCs portfolio

    As of December 31, 2022, Indian students comprise 39.5% of the total international student population in Canada. Notably, in terms of geography, Canada is the second-largest retail education loan portfolio outstanding for specialised education loan Non-Banking Financial Companies (NBFCs), with the United States being the only country ahead. The exposure to the Canadian market has witnessed a robust compounded annual growth rate of 77.5% from March 31, 2021, to June 30, 2023.

    The Assets Under Management (AUM) of retail education loans provided by CARE Ratings-rated specialised education loan NBFCs to students pursuing education in Canada exhibited significant growth, escalating from Rs. 1,426 crore as of March 31, 2021, to Rs. 5,183 crore as of June 30, 2023, constituting 19.8% of their total AUM as of June 30, 2023.

    In the recent past, there has been escalating diplomatic tensions between India and Canada. This has resulted in India taking certain measures including suspending visa services for Canadian nationals. Given that Indian students account for 40% of international student enrolments in Canada and contribute approximately CAD 10 billion annually to the Canadian education sector, CareEdge Ratings does not foresee any adverse actions that would significantly impact this segment.

    CareEdge Ratings anticipates that the growth momentum for these NBFCs will persist, as students are more likely to seek alternative destinations for their education rather than postpone their academic pursuits.

    Mohit Rahlan, CEO, TIW Capital TV, on WPI

    Wholesale prices continued to decline for the sixth straight month. Price decline was seen in paper & paper products, chemicals, textiles and basic metals. However, manufactured goods witnessed a sequential rise in prices, indicating a recovery is underway in the sector. More importantly, Food prices continued to witness a sequential decline. Vegetable prices which had shot up in the last two months saw a significant correction.

    This bodes well for the inflation trajectory in the economy and will allow the RBI to stay put on interest rates. Because of this sharp fall in food prices, the WPI index also witnessed a decline on a MoM basis. This was the first sequential decrease in three months. India looks quite in control of inflation and this will likely give RBI the required headroom to react to global macroeconomic events and policy actions of the Fed.

    Stock Market Live Updates: PGIM INDIA MF View

    Puneet Pal, Head-Fixed Income, PGIM India Mutual Fund.

    We believe that global monetary tightening has entered its last phase with key central banks like the Fed and BOE pausing on rate hikes. RBI will also be on a long pause with government taking fiscal steps to manage inflation. We think that the broad range of the benchmark 10yr bond yield will be between 7.20% to 7.60% over the next couple of months. Given the recent rise in yields which has pushed back the expectations of rate cuts, yields have entered attractive territory and investors can look to increase allocation to Fixed Income as growth is expected to slow down towards the end of the year.

    Investors with medium to long term investment horizon can look at funds having duration of 3-4yrs with predominant sovereign holdings as they offer a better risk reward currently. Investors having an investment horizon of 6-12 months can look at the money market funds as yields are pretty attractive in the 1yr segment of the curve.

    Indian Markets:

    The bond sell off induced by the hawkish than expected RBI policy on 6th abated a bit as inflation came in lower than expected. CPI inflation came in 5.02% below consensus expectations of 5.40% led by broad based deceleration of food prices. Food and core inflation both came down with core inflation coming in at 4.50%, which is a 43 month low. Given the base impact, inflation can come in likely below 5% next month. The lower headline and core inflation numbers provided a cheer to the bond markets. The benchmark 10yr bond which closed at 7.35% last week and went to a high of 7.38% during the week before closing the week at 7.32% helped by lower inflation as value buying started. The violence in middle east led to a crude price spike as brent ended the week at 90.89 up more than 7% from the last weeks closing of 84.58. INR was stable during the week despite the rise in crude prices and the strength in dollar index, as RBI was active in the FX market. The curve steepened marginally with shorter end outperforming.

    Some segments of the market are expecting that RBI will not do open market sales (OMO) of bonds as announced in the policy on 6th as liquidity will remain tight on account of expected increase in currency leakage (CIC) and RBI will not need to use OMO’s. Either way, we continue to believe that the announcement of OMO’s by RBI was meant to be a yield signal as there are other tools available to RBI for managing liquidity.

    Money market rates stayed elevated anchored to the MSF rate as banking liquidity remained tight on suspected RBI intervention. Dollar Index continued to strengthen ending the week at 106.65 up from last week’s closing of 106.10. The overnight Index swap (OIS) curve came down due to lower inflation and aided by lower US yields. The 5yr OIS ended the week lower by 22bps at 6.65% and the 1yr OIS was lower by 9bps ending the week at 6.95%.

    International Markets:

    The higher for longer rate theme continued to dominate the narrative in the global bond markets even as yields retraced a bit from the highs touched earlier in the month. US PPI inflation came in higher than expected while CPI inflation came in line with expectations. The US yield curve has continued its steepening trend as the US bond market recalibrates its expectations of rate cuts next year amid the higher for longer theme and are now pricing in rate cuts to begin form September 2024 relative to the earlier expectations of rate cuts starting from May 2024. US economic data continues to come in strong with jobs data last week coming in better than expected. Growth in Europe is moderating rapidly. The benchmark US 10yr yield ended the week at 4.61% down almost 20bps from the previous weeks closing of 4.80% helped somewhat by the ongoing crisis in middle east. The contradiction of a loose fiscal policy and tighter monetary policy in US is not lost on the markets and the yields at the longer end of the US treasury curve are reflecting concerns of a looser fiscal policy as the higher supply of US treasuries keeps yields elevated.

    Commodities Market Live Updates: Geojit Financial Services expert analyses gold and silver as safe haven Assets amid geopolitical uncertainty

    Hareesh V, Head of Commodities at Geojit Financial Services.

    “Gold is traditionally seen as a safe haven asset. During periods of geopolitical uncertainty, investors tend to seek refuge in assets that are considered less risky than equities or currencies. Gold’s inherent value and lack of counterparty risk make it an attractive option. Gold is not subject to the same economic and political risks as other assets, making it a reliable store of wealth during uncertain times. It also acts as a hedge against currency devaluation and inflation. Usually, geopolitical crises lead to worries about a nation’s currency, people may turn to gold to preserve their purchasing power. In addition, gold is used to diversify one’s portfolio, investors diversify their portfolios to reduce risk during periods of crisis.

    Gold is more appealing when the opportunity cost of holding other assets with interest rates, as the yellow metal carries nil interest rates. Usually, in war-like situations, the interest rates may be low or even negative. Furthermore, gold is highly liquid even in times of crisis making it a trusted asset during extreme situations. As this metal performed well during crisis periods historically, influencing investor behaviour as well.

    As for Silver, the recent spike in silver prices was due to rising geopolitical uncertainty. However, silver is currently more used in industrial areas from where the demand outlook is bleak. Hence major rallies are less likely in the near future. Jewelry or ornaments demand during festivals and weddings also have less impact on prices.”

    2QFY24: No fireworks; another quarter of yoy lower margins

    Dmart’s 2QFY24 revenue growth of 18.7% yoy was led by retail area addition of 12.1% yoy and improvement in core SSSG. GM print of 14.7%, 45 bps lower yoy, remained impacted by weaker GM&A mix (23% in 1HFY24 versus 24.8% in 1HFY23). However, the print was better-than-expected although offset by

    higher-than-expected other expenses. EBITDA missed estimates by a modest 2%. Store addition of 12 in 1HFY24 was tepid and drives a reduction in FY2024 addition to 45. We modestly tweak estimates; roll-forward drives a revised FV of Rs3,600 (Rs3,475 earlier). Retain SELL.

    Stock in Focus: Bajaj Finance posts strong Q2FY24 business update, aims for robust growth

    In its business update for Q2FY24, Bajaj Finance came out with strong numbers with new loan book addition at 26% YoY and AUM seeing a growth of around 33% on a YoY basis. Although the lender’s cost of funds has increased due to the high-interest rate environment, we believe that new customer additions along with robust growth in its AUM will lead to healthy RoAs and RoEs in 2QFY24 as well as forthcoming quarters. With the launch of merchant QR code payments in FY23 and foray into new products, the company’s top line is expected to grow at a robust pace. With festive season, increased penetration in rural areas and sustained growth from urban areas, we believe that the company will come out with healthy numbers in Q2FY24. We believe that the recent consideration by the board to raise funds of around Rs. 8,000 crores will help the lender to be well placed in its capital adequacy for its future expansion plan. Bajaj Finance’s diversified product mix, strong execution capabilities and around 55% towards secured loans make the lender’s asset quality healthy. -- Preview by Shreyansh Shah, Research Analyst, StoxBox.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Economy: Money Market and FX Weekly by Kotak Institutional Equities

    System liquidity to tighten further. System liquidity tightened sharply due to minimal government spending amid indirect tax collections, lower-than-expected CRR drawdown, and likely FX intervention by the RBI. System liquidity tightened to a deficit Rs208.8 bn, from a marginal surplus of Rs27.6 bn. The average overnight money market rates remained broadly unchanged at 6.75% on a w-o-w basis. Going ahead, we expect system liquidity surplus to tighten further led by outflows from GST collections (towards the end of the week), auctions, and CIC leakage offsetting the limited government spending. Continued FX intervention by the RBI could further tighten system liquidity. Given the recent trend of muted government spending, we expect liquidity to remain tight through the rest of the month (despite US$5 bn FX swap due next week) before easing comfortably into surplus territory only by end-October/early-November. This could increase the probability of OMO sales announcement at the end of this month.

    Government cash balance to surge. Government cash balances last week came in higher than our expectations at ~Rs2.6 tn as on October 6, 2023 (from ~Rs3.6 tn a week ago). Based on the movement in the liquidity numbers last week, we expect cash balance to have picked up to ~Rs3 tn led by indirect tax collections. This week, we expect cash balance to improve to ~Rs3.9 tn led by GST collections.

    CIC trends. CIC for the week ending October 6, 2023 remained broadly unchanged from the previous week at ~Rs33 tn. The current CIC outstanding is 11.05% of the FY2024BE GDP.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Sectoral Outlook: Kotak Institutional Equities on IT Services: Three themes from three results

    The results of the big 3 throws up three broad conclusions: (1) companies have finally bitten the bullet and gone for aggressive cost rationalization, a change in stance from earlier in the calendar year where back-ended growth hopes meant companies were comfortable carrying inefficiencies; (2) many mega-deals closed; these come into prominence during challenging times; and (3) the visibility of an improvement in discretionary spending is still bleak but necessary to support FY2025E consensus growth estimates. Mega-deals can provide 2-3% to FY2025E revenues. Infosys and HCLT are our top picks.

    Stepping the pedal on cost optimization as hopes of near-term recovery fade

    The big 3 surprised positively on margins. Companies are a lot more aggressive in controlling costs compared to the beginning of the year stance, where hopes of a back-ended recovery meant that companies were okay with carrying a few inefficiencies. Costs are being aligned to actual demand as the anticipated quick recovery did not materialize. Companies flexed a few levers to defend margins. These include raising utilization rates, increasing productivity measures, lowering average cost of resources, further cutting subcon costs (sufficiently optimized by now) and managing SG&A. We believe that lowering average cost of resources has a lot more scope. The hiring spree during Covid led to lateral hiring at inflated salaries that were not fully compensated through pricing. Expect gradual corrections through differential merit increase.

    We believe that companies have adequate levers to improve margins over the medium term. We build in 60-110 bps margin expansion over FY2024-26E for TCS, Infosys and HCLT. Key risks are any further unanticipated deterioration of demand and the costs of return to office.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Deepak Jasani, Head of Retail Research, HDFC securities on today’s market trends

    Indian markets could open flat to mildly lower, in line with mostly lower Asian markets today and negative US markets on Oct 13

    U.S. stocks ended mostly lower Friday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average clinging to a slight gain as geopolitical fears intensified and a consumer-sentiment survey showed a jump in inflation expectations. Major Wall Street banks, including JPMorgan Chase & Co. Citigroup Inc. and Wells Fargo & Co. reported earnings for the third quarter that were stronger than analysts estimated.

    For the week, the Dow booked a gain of 0.8%, while the S&P 500 rose 0.4% and the Nasdaq slipped 0.2%. Signs Israel is preparing for a ground invasion of Gaza left traders looking for safety ahead of the weekend.

    Buying of U.S. Treasurys on Friday sent yields lower, with the 10-year rate falling 8.2 basis points to 4.628%, according to Dow Jones Market Data. Gold prices climbed sharply, with the December contract settling 3.1% higher at $1,941.50 an ounce.

    Oil prices have surged amid fears over the war in the Middle East, with West Texas Intermediate crude rising almost 6% on Friday to settle at $87.69 a barrel. U.S. tightening sanctions on Russian crude sales also helped boost oil prices.

    The University of Michigan’s latest reading on consumer sentiment, released Friday morning shortly after the stock market’s open, also created some concern in markets. The survey data showed consumers’ one-year inflation expectations rising to 3.8% from 3.2% in September.

    China reported a smaller-than-expected decline in exports in September from a year ago, while imports missed, according to customs data released Friday.In U.S.-dollar terms, exports fell by 6.2% last month from a year ago. That’s less than the 7.6% drop forecast by analysts in a Reuters poll.

    Imports also fell by 6.2% in U.S.-dollar terms in September compared to a year ago — slightly more than the 6% decline expected by the Reuters poll.

    The People’s Bank of China left its one-year medium-term lending facility rate unchanged at 2.50%, as expected.

    Demand for haven assets waned as the trading week began in Asia with the US and its allies attempting to contain the Israel-Hamas war. Asia stocks declined, as the US and its allies sought to head off a widening of the Middle East conflict.

    Nifty ended October 13 on a negative note post a volatile session. At close, Nifty was down 0.22% or 42.9 points at 19751.1. Nifty recovered well after a gap down opening on October 13. On weekly charts it rose 0.5% forming a bullish engulfing bull pattern. Nifty could now face resistance in the 19839-19878 band while support could come in at 19512-19565 band.

    Stock Market Live Updates: OPENING BELL: Sensex and Nifty reflect global tensions, oil price surge

    The Sensex and Nifty, India’s stock market indices, commenced trading on a weak note, mirroring global trends influenced by geopolitical tensions and concerns about an economic slowdown. The surge in crude oil prices over the weekend added to the market’s initial reaction.

    In early trading, the 30-share BSE Sensex dropped by 110.73 points, reaching 66,172.01, while the NSE Nifty fell by 30.90 points, reaching 19,720.15.

    Among the Nifty components, gainers included HCL Tech, ONGC, Infosys, Coal India and Dr Reddy’s. On the other hand,BPCL, Asian Paints, Nestle India, IndusInd Bank and Divis Labs were among the underperformers.

    Analysts noted that the upcoming earnings reports from major companies would play a pivotal role in determining market direction, and they anticipated the domestic market to maintain a narrow range. Additionally, foreign portfolio investors were expected to continue their selling trend.

    FPI Selling

    The FPI selling, which began in September, continues in October. As per NSDL data FPIs sold equity for Rs 13,652 crore through the stock exchanges through 13th October. But they invested Rs 3,868 crore through the primary market and others during the same period, taking the net sell figure to Rs 9,784 crore. The sustained rise in the US bond yields was the principal factor driving the FPI selling.

    “FPIs continued to sell in financials, power and IT and buy capital goods and automobiles. The Indian market continues to exhibit resilience even amid many challenges, and, therefore, there is a growing concern among FPIs that if they continue to sell, they will miss out on the potential rally in the Indian market. This might restrain the FPIs from selling heavily in the coming days, said: V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

    Global and domestic macroeconomic data, ongoing Q2 earning seasons, crude oil inventories, and FII/DII trading activities will be in focus, said Arvinder Singh Nanda, Senior Vice President of Master Capital Services Ltd.

    “We expect markets to remain range-bound for next week, as they will take further cues from a surge in crude oil prices, the Israel conflict, banks’ quarterly results , as banks NIM % will remain in focus,” it added.

    According to Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investment Ltd, The activities of Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) will be important, given their recent consistent selling streak. The trajectory of the US market, particularly Nasdaq’s pattern of lower highs and lower lows, will play a pivotal role in market sentiment.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Nifty and BankNifty forecast: Cautiously positive with resistance ahead

    Prabhudas Lilladher



    Nifty after opening on a weak note and hovering near the 19670 zone recovered to some extent but once again witnessed resistance near the 19800 zone and ended near the 19750 levels with bias still remaining cautiously

    positive. The index needs to maintain the near-term support zone of 19600 levels while on the upside 19850 zone is acting as a resistance barrier which needs to be breached decisively. The support for the day is seen at 19650 levels while the resistance is seen at 19900 levels.


    BankNifty witnessed a volatile session opening near the 44200 zone and recovering to resist near the 44550 zone to end once again near the 44300 levels. The levels near 44700 zone is acting as a strong resistance barrier for the index where the important 50EMA lies and only a decisive breach above that zone can establish some conviction thereafter to anticipate for further rise. BankNifty would have the daily range of 44000-44700 levels.

    Market Outlook: Eyes on HDFC Bank Q2 results amid geopolitical tensions

    Comment by Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd

    “In this dynamic financial market, all eyes are on HDFC Bank’s Q2 results, which are eagerly anticipated as they report merged figures for the first time. Expectations are for moderated margins and a potential 40-45% YoY profit increase. Nifty (19751) is the center of attention with a suggested strategy to sell at the current market price (CMP), placing a stop at 19987, and targeting 19649/19507 or even more aggressively at 19333. Bank Nifty (44287) follows a similar pattern, selling at CMP, with a stop at 45433, and targeting 44000/43600 or a more aggressive range of 43000-43100. Zomato, Tata Motors, and Bajaj Finance are expected to perform well in the near term. Key Q2 results, including HDFC Bank, CEAT, and Jio Financial Services, are on the horizon, followed by Bajaj Finance, ICICI Prudential Life, and VST Industries on Tuesday (October 17). The financial landscape remains uncertain due to geopolitical tensions potentially impacting Nifty. Technically, Nifty’s strength lies above 19889, with crucial support at 19507. FIIs’ selling has been a concern on Dalal Street, totaling Rs. 12,383 crores in October. Market volatility persists until the Fed addresses inflation concerns. Dalmia Bharat reports an impressive 162% YoY profit jump, while Avenue Supermarts experiences a 9% YoY drop in Q2 PAT despite a substantial 19% revenue increase. Keep an eye on October 19 when Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell is scheduled to speak, introducing more uncertainty into the market.”

    Pre-market views by Avdhut Bagkar Technical and Derivatives Analyst, StoxBox.

    Wall Street’s major indices opened higher but lost ground on Friday after a preliminary reading on US consumer sentiment. The Middle East conflict soured investor sentiment for riskier bets and overshadowed upbeat quarterly earnings from some of the largest US banks. Asia-Pacific markets started the week today on a soft footing as investors look ahead to China’s third-quarter gross domestic product numbers. Taking cues from the Gift Nifty, Indian markets are likely open in negative territory. Investors will eye a host of critical data points in the third week of October, filled with events that will guide market direction including Q2FY24 results, macroeconomic data, crude oil prices, and other global cues amid the Israel-Hamas conflict. In the stock-specific coverage today, investors will look forward to the quarterly result update from HDFC Bank, Federal Bank and Indian Bank to gain further direction on the banking industry outlook.

    The benchmark index opened 139 points lower tracking weak global cues, however, the index attempted to fill the gap during the day but failed to reclaim the area on a closing basis. The VIX remained muted while the day’s move came on relatively higher volume. The 50 DMA trading near 19600 continues to offer immediate support and sustenance above the same can attract bullish momentum.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Geopolitical tensions and surging oil price may weaken domestic markets

    Vikas Jain, Senior Research Analyst at Reliance Securities.

    Geo-political tension in the gulf region, weak opening in the Asian markets, surging oil price and sharp decline in US market on Friday, may open domestic markets on a weak note. Earnings from three major banks – JPMorgan, Wells Fargo and Citigroup helped to offset some of the negative sentiment.

    Oil was more than 5 per cent higher, rising towards $US91 a barrel as concerns about the conflict between Israel and Hamas widening to include Iran flared. Gold surged more than 4 percent back above $US1900 an ounce. The US volatility index was more than 20 per cent higher at one point. Back home, Gift Nifty is trading flat to positive while US Future gained up to 0.2%.

    Market trend will be determined by Geo- political factor, oil price and quarterly results. This week will focus on China GDP number, UK CPI, US retail sales data, US Fed official statement and major US quarterly reports like TSMC, Bank of America, Netflix and Tesla. Among the domestic front like September CPI data fell to 3-month low at 5%, impressive quarterly results, strong retail participation, August IIP data will support market from lower level.

    Oil – Oil prices surged 5% to close above $90/bbl after the Treasury Department sanctioned two shipping companies for violating a $60-per-barrel price cap on Russian crude and geo-political tension in the Gulf region lifting oil prices.

    Gold – Gold surged 4% to $1932/bbl most since March as rising Middle East tensions attract investors seeking a safe haven. Bearish investors were caught off guard by the conflict between Israel and Hamas that threatens to escalate.

    Commodities Market Live Updates: Crude oil prices surge amid escalating Israel-Hamas conflict

    “Crude oil staged a robust comeback on Friday following a panicked sell-off on Thursday. Crude oil prices surged by approximately 6.0% after Israel announced the evacuation of civilians from the northern Gaza Strip last week. Israeli forces are prepared to enter Gaza, raising concerns of an escalation in the conflict between Israel and Hamas, which in turn impacted crude oil prices.Crude oil prices experienced an upswing following statements made by Iran in support of Palestine. Iran’s Oil Minister, Javad Owji, mentioned on Friday that oil prices could potentially reach $100 per barrel due to the current situation in the Middle East. However, the strength of the dollar index, rising U.S. stock markets, subdued U.S. consumer sentiment, and a 6.2% decrease in Chinese exports in September may act as limiting factors for crude oil gains.It is anticipated that crude oil prices will remain volatile during today’s trading session. Crude oil finds support levels at $85.20–84.40 and resistance at $86.80–87.50 for today’s session. In terms of INR, crude oil has support at Rs 7,200-7,080, with resistance at Rs 7,290–7,350.” -- Rahul Kalantri, VP Commodities, Mehta Equities Ltd

    Commodities Market Live Updates: Gold and silver prices surge amid global uncertainties and rate hike speculations

    “After reaching a seven-month low two Fridays ago, precious metals experienced their most significant weekly gains since mid-March. Prices now sit over $90 higher than last week’s closing figures, with silver experiencing a notable surge. Gold saw an impressive increase of over 6%, while silver skyrocketed by 9.5% from its recent low.The remarkable upturn in gold and silver prices can be attributed to the increasing demand for safe-haven assets as Israel escalates its conflict with Hamas, amid growing instability in the Middle East and Russia’s ongoing confrontation with Ukraine. Additionally, the statements from five Federal Reserve members suggesting that another rate hike is unnecessary further bolstered the precious metals market. Interest rates, once a primary consideration for gold, have taken a back seat as investors prioritize the uncertainties stemming from geopolitical issues. In today’s session, we anticipate gold and silver to continue exhibiting volatility. Gold finds support at $1910-1894, with resistance at $1932-1944. Meanwhile, silver’s support is at $22.45-22.31, and resistance stands at $22.74-22.88. In terms of the Indian Rupee (INR), gold is supported at Rs59,110 and Rs58,840, with resistance at Rs59,650 and Rs58,840. For silver in INR, the support levels are at Rs70,650-69,910, while resistance can be found at Rs71,980–72,550.” -- Rahul Kalantri, VP Commodities, Mehta Equities Ltd

    Stock Market Live Updates: Economy Watch: Economist Suman Chowdhury: IIP exceeds expectations, manufacturing at 14-month high

    Suman Chowdhury, Chief Economist and Head – Research, Acuité Ratings & Research

    “IIP growth in Aug-23 has exceeded expectations by rising to 10.3% YoY vs 6.0% YoY in Jul-23. The growth in the manufacturing sector stood at a 14-month high of 9.3% YoY along with a moderate sequential output growth of 1.2%, better than the seasonal trend of the past. Cumulatively, IIP has grown by a healthy 6.1% YoY in the first five months of the fiscal which reflects a significant momentum in industrial activity.

    There are three factors behind the strong reported IIP growth figure – one the base advantage with IIP having contracted by -0.7% in Aug-22; second, the benefits that accrued to the mining and the electricity sector due to the highly deficient rainfall in Aug-23; these two segments reported growth of 12.3% and 15.3% YoY respectively. And thirdly, the structural increase pickup in industrial activity such as cement and steel production in H1FY24 due to a significant rise in infrastructure spending and higher expectation of consumer goods demand during the festive season.

    We expect IIP to maintain a healthy growth trend for FY24 as a whole although the base factor will not remain as favourable in the second half of the year.”

    “India’s merchandise trade deficit compressed considerably to $19.4 billion in September 2023 from $28.0 billion in the year-ago month, with a sharp contraction in imports reflecting the impact of lower commodity prices. The narrower-than-expected merchandise trade deficit print augurs well for the current account deficit for Q2 FY2024, although it is expected to enlarge vis-à-vis the Q1 levels. Crude oil price volatility amidst geo-political tensions remains a risk to the CAD outlook for H2 FY2024.”

    Stock Market Live Updates: Sectoral Insights: Decoding The Fluorine Chemistry: EMKAY GLOBAL

    Organic fluorine molecules are increasingly becoming ingredients of newer agrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, and electronic chemicals. Earlier, Chlorine and Hydroxyl groups were used due to their abundant availability and ease of handling. This was mainly because fluorine imparts desirable properties such as metabolic and thermal stability, increased bioavailability, and lipophilicity in fluorinated compounds, making their applications much more attractive for different end-uses. Fluorine handling is challenging, given its high reactivity; only a limited number of players have fluorine handling experience and are now reaping the benefit of the structural acceptance of fluorinated compounds. In the new products pipeline, fluorine penetration has surged to 50% from 30% for agrochemicals and to 40% from 20-25% for pharmaceutical molecules, over the last few years. Sophisticated molecules that are more heterocyclic and complex in nature are expected to be at the forefront of this structural shift.

    Indian companies stand to benefit from growing innovator interests

    Navin Fluorine (NFIL), SRF, and Gujarat Fluorochemicals (GFL) have developed competencies in fluorine chemistry over the past few decades. Anupam Rasayan (Anupam) with its strategic acquisition of Tanfac has secured access to the key RMs and is gradually ramping up its fluorination capabilities. Most of these players have announced huge capex plans, totaling ~Rs200bn over the next 5 years, especially in their fluorine business, indicating a long growth runway. We believe contract manufacturers with established fluorine building blocks, integrated value chains, and expertise in synthesis at all scales will be in a sweet spot to capture such opportunities. We initiate coverage on the sector with a BUY on SRF/Anupam, HOLD on NFIL, and SELL on GFL.

    Stock Market Live Updates: Sectoral Insights: Electronics Manufacturing Industry – Thematic: Transforming Dreams into Devices: Motilal Oswal

    In the ever-evolving electronics landscape, EMS companies are surging forward, driven by OEMs’ increased outsourcing. While most of the electronics production remains in-house (~65%/77% global/India), the transition to EMS is accelerating. These companies are now offering high- margin services such as design (ODM) and component sourcing that leverage their manufacturing expertise. Advanced technologies, such as EVs, 5G, wearables and AI, are catalyzing this shift, demanding EMS expertise.

    India’s electronics industry is poised for an 18% CAGR over FY21-26E, driven by government initiatives (PLI, SPECS, EMC) and a shift from China. India’s EMS market is set to explode, backed by domestic raw material production (electronic ecosystem) and cost-effective labor. With a 32% CAGR expected over CY21-26E, it’s the time to harness India’s electronics potential (INR6t market by FY27).

    We initiate coverage on: a) Kaynes Technologies (Kaynes), Avalon Technologies (Avalon), Syrma SGS (Syrma) and Cyient DLM (CYIENTDL) with a BUY rating; and b) Data Patterns (DATAPATT) with a Neutral rating. These companies are some of the key players operating in the Indian EMS space.

    Stock Recommendations: Emkay Global on InterGlobe Aviation (IndiGo)

    Indigo displayed its dominant position and pricing prowess by introducing fuel charge to counter rising ATF costs, resulting in 8-12% fare hikes, on average. While competition has not followed suit so far, we observe that fares for key airlines, viz. Indigo, Air India and Vistara, remain in a +/-10% or Rs200-300 tolerance band for key sample routes, for many of which Indigo still offers the cheapest fares. We foresee the fuel charge improving Indigo’s theoretical yields by ~10% QoQ in Q3FY24E, ceteris paribus, with media reports also quoting unnamed company sources indicating Rs0.9-1.0bn weekly impact. Fuel cost/ASK was turning out to be 8-10% higher than our FY24 estimate, as Brent and jet kero spreads strengthened from August, but the fuel charge offsets this, up to USD90-95/bbl and ~USD30/bbl, respectively, with low risk of FY24 ex-forex earnings downgrade. We retain BUY on Indigo with TP of Rs 3,000/share

    On Monday, Asian markets opened with caution due to the recent decline in Wall Street and the surge in oil prices on Friday, all amid the backdrop of increasing violence in the Middle East.

    At the opening, Japanese stocks were notably down, as the benchmark Nikkei 225 index dipped by 1.85%, equivalent to 610.81 points, trading at 31,705.50 by 6:50 a.m. IST.

The South Korean KOSPI index decreased by 0.56%, with a loss of 15.40 points, landing at 2,440.75.
