Stock Market Live Today: Indian equity markets show strong momentum, but caution urged in small and microcap segments
The Indian equity markets are experiencing a robust momentum, with key index heavyweights recently joining the rally. However, caution is advised, especially in the small and microcap segments. The overall market conditions appear favorable, with stable macro-economic indicators, easing inflation, healthy corporate earnings in Q1FY24, and strong liquidity flows, including domestic investments through SIPs. But there are potential sources of intermittent volatility, such as the US Fed’s actions, rising commodity prices (especially crude oil), uncertain monsoon impact on crop production, upcoming state elections, and soft rural consumer demand. -- Milind Muchhala, Executive Director - Julius Baer India.

Stock Recommendations: Motilal Oswal Financial Services on Cipla
Cipla’s robust ANDA pipeline with complex products (inhalers, peptides, injectables, etc.) should drive consistent growth in the US generics segment.
While CIPLA is focusing on its efforts towards resolving regulatory issues at Goa/Pithampur plants, it is simultaneously filing critical products such as gAbraxane, g-Advair from alternate site and de-risking the opportunity. This along with a steady outperformance in the branded generics market (of India/SA) would enable a 16% earnings CAGR over FY23-25.
While industry outlook is likely to remain competitive, we expect product-specific opportunities to be the key growth drivers over the next 3-4 years. We upgrade Cipla to BUY under this backdrop with TP of ₹1,420.

Economy Watch: India monsoon deficit persists, CPI inflation lower than expected
Monsoon rains remain in deficit at 9% below the long-term average. Out of the 36 subdivisions 10 have received deficit rainfall, 22 have received normal rainfall and 4 have received excess rainfall. Overall sowing remains in line with last year, but pulses and oilseeds sowing is marginally down from last year.
Basin and reservoir levels are 11.6% below the long-term average. Government continues its proactive stance on managing food inflation particularly with respect to cereals, pulses, and vegetables.
India CPI Inflation came in lower than expected at 6.83% (expected 7.10%), with lower food prices while the core inflation remained subdued below 5%.
Food inflation can continue to be volatile though encouragingly core inflation is showing a softer trend sequentially. -- Puneet Pal, Head-Fixed Income, PGIM India Mutual Fund

Debt Market Today: Indian bond yields show volatility amid global factors; market remains cautious about index inclusion
Indian Bond yields were volatile during the week. Bonds started the week on a weak footing as rising crude oil price and global bond yields dented sentiments and the benchmark 10yr Bond yield touched a high of 7.25% on the first day of the week before value buying crept in.
News reports about high probability of Indian Government bonds getting included in one of the global benchmark bond indices led to a decent rally with the 10yr benchmark bond touching a low of 7.13%. Yields were also supported by comments on higher collection in the small savings schemes which augurs well for the fiscal position.
The news about bond inclusion is not new and there was high speculation about Index Inclusion at the same time last year also and nothing has changed materially from last year including taxation for FPI’s (Govt has declined to tweak tax rules).
In any case even assuming the best case scenario of Index inclusion, the actual flows can take up to 6 months to come in and even when they come, it will not change the fundamentals of the market in a significant manner though in the short run, it can lead to a 20-30 bps rally as fast money will try to pre-empt the expected flows.
Market scepticism about Index inclusion become evident as yields rose a day after the news reports negating much of the earlier rally as the 10yr bond yield ended the week at 7.20%. Rising crude prices and higher global bond yields impacted sentiments as INR depreciated to the end of the week at 83.19 amidst USD strength. The curve remained flat.
August trade deficit widened to USD 24.2bn from USD 20.7bn.
Analysts expect the current account deficit to be around 1.50% of GDP in FY24. -- Puneet Pal, Head-Fixed Income, PGIM India Mutual Fund

Economy Watch: Global monetary tightening nears end, RBI expected to pause; bond yields seen in attractive territory
We believe that global monetary tightening is on its last legs and central banks globally will be on a long pause. RBI will also be on a long pause with the government taking fiscal steps to manage inflation. We think that the broad range of the benchmark 10yr bond yield will be between 7.10% to 7.25% till the end of the month. Given the recent rise in yields which has pushed back the expectations of rate cuts, yields are entering 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 attractive in the 1yr segment of the curve. - Puneet Pal, Head-Fixed Income, PGIM India Mutual Fund

Financial Markets Today: High 10-year G-Sec yields expected for September due to inflation and policy changes
In September, the 10-year G-sec yield is expected to stay high due to August inflation data and discontinuation of
incremental CRR and advance tax. Food prices will push headline inflation up for next two months, but cool after government intervention and new crop arrivals.
Factors such as food price, inflation print, fiscal numbers, and rate decisions by the Fed and the RBI MPC are expected to exert upward pressure for a couple of months.
The discontinuation of incremental CRR should soften yield from current levels. Liquidity will be comfortable and won’t pressure the long end: Crisil

Share Market Live Today: IOB shares spurt over 14% on NSE
Shares of Indian Overseas Bank have surged by 14.30 percent, reaching Rs 45.14 at 11 am.
Earlier, the bank’s CEO stated that Indian Overseas Bank (IOB) has likely become the only bank to improve its CASA (Current Account-Savings Account) ratio on a year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter basis. This comes as the Chennai-headquartered bank reported strong growth in net profit and interest income, along with an improvement in asset quality during the first quarter of this fiscal year.
Ajay Kumar Srivastava, MD, and CEO of IOB, mentioned, “We have been able to grow our CASA both in absolute terms and as a percentage, both year-on-year and quarter-on-quarter.”
The bank’s CASA ratio improved to 44.14 percent in Q1 of this fiscal year, up from 43.07 percent in the same quarter last year and 43.74 percent in the March 2023 quarter. Total CASA increased to ₹1,16,694 crore as of June 30, 2023, from ₹1,12,012 crore a year ago.

Bullion Cues: Gold and silver prices volatile amid dollar index swings
“Gold and silver witnessed high volatility but managed to recover from their lows on Friday. Both precious metals recovered from their key support levels after profit taking in the dollar index from its highs and hopes around a likely pause in U.S. interest-rate hike. The U.S. University of Michigan consumer confidence and inflation expectations data supported gold and silver prices. Besides, China’s physical gold premiums soared to a new high last week amid strong demand, shoring up the depreciating yuan.

Share Market Live Today: HPCL, BPCL, IOCL stocks may see further correction, ‘HOLD’ rating suggested
Although HPCL/BPCL/IOCL are trading at 0.9/1.2/0.8x FY24 PBV, a look at their long term valuation charts suggests that they could still correct from here. More importantly, the common carrier access of product pipelines may result in sustained de-rating of these stocks even lower. We reiterate ‘HOLD’ rating on HPCL/BPCL/IOCL with TP of Rs263/353/97 valuing at 0.8/1.1/0.8x FY25 PBV. -- Prabhudas Lilladher

Nifty Outlook: Technicals - Consolidation looms amidst oscillator stretch
Nifty outlook: The near achievement of the 20230 objective on Friday, prompts us to give weightage to the possibilities of a consolidation, given how stretched the oscillators have been for sometime. Any rise in VIX from here on, could signal long liquidation. We will test the premises of this construct by watching if Nifty manages to float above 20180. If unable to do so, 19550 could emerge as a downside objective, but the prospects of 20600 would continue be very much alive, as long as 20000 holds-- Anand James, Chief Market Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Stocks to Watch: BofA Securities estimates 25% growth for Reliance Retail Ventures in FY25 and FY26
BofA Securities has estimated Reliance Retail Ventures (RRVL) to deliver 25 per cent growth for both FY25 and FY26. The broker said that based on RIL’s quarterly comments,it estimated 50 per cent of RRL’s ex-connectivity revenues coming from grocery and 20-25 per cent each from electronics & fashion. “Given that there is still a vast opportunity in the retail mkt, at this scale also we believe RRVL is in investment mode.”
The Bofa Securities note said that this would likely keep capex high and return on equity and return on invested capital is unlikely to improve for next 3-4 years. Observing that RRVL intended to create an InvIT for warehousing, it said that a third of the total capex (related to warehousing) would move to InvIT, but investments in store front and tech would continue. We value 83.8 per cent of Reliance Retail at $98 bn in our SOTP (sum of the parts). “We raise our FY25/26 EPS by 1-3% and retail EV/EBITDA multiple to 32.5X (from 32X) to factor sustained momentum.”

The 10-year benchmark 7.18% 2033 bond yield is likely to move in a 7.15%-7.20% range on Monday, compared to its previous close of 7.1644%, a trader with a private bank said.

Asian stock markets fell on Monday as China’s key property sector continues to remain under stress even after positive data from the country showed signs of stabilization.
Meanwhile, markets are betting that the Fed will stand pat on rates at its Sept. 19-20 and investors will look for clues on the central bank’s monetary policy outlook.
On the domestic front, the Nifty 50 and Sensex gained nearly 2% each last week and are expected to continue their stellar run.
The more domestically-focussed small- and mid-caps have been volatile after hitting record highs on account of fears of stretched valuations, according to analysts.
Separately, foreign investors bought 1.64 billion rupees ($19.74 million) worth of shares on a net basis on Friday, while their domestic peers bought 19.39 billion rupees worth of equity, according to stock exchange data. - Reuters
