We have seen higher investment demand for gold in India through various gold investment instruments. Gold prices have gained nearly 8.70% CYTD (Source: Bloomberg) right before summer wedding season and auspicious Akshaya Tritiya when demand for jewellery and coins tends to remain higher. The record high gold prices may impact India retail jewellery demand going forward as consumers may refrain from buying at current price levels.

    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex, Nifty declines in early trading; markets await earnings season

    Indian benchmark indices, the Sensex and Nifty, started the day on a weak note on Tuesday. The 30-share BSE Sensex fell 145.79 points to 73,868.76 in early trade, while the NSE Nifty dropped 29.65 points to 22,432.35. 

    After consolidating for three weeks, both the Nifty and Sensex reached all-time highs on Monday, driven by a surge in metal companies following upbeat manufacturing data from China. Additionally, a moderation in a key U.S. inflation reading boosted sentiment.

    Equity analysts at Motilal Oswal Financial Services and WealthMills Securities believe that monthly business updates and the upcoming earnings season, starting next week, could sustain market momentum and potentially lead to further highs.

    Asian markets opened higher, with the MSCI Asia ex-Japan index up 0.69%. However, Wall Street closed mixed overnight as optimism about moderating inflation was tempered by strong U.S. economic data, which could delay potential rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

    U.S. manufacturing grew for the first time in 1-1/2 years in March, supported by a rebound in production and an increase in new orders, weighing on expectations of a rate cut starting in June.

    Provisional data from the National Stock Exchange showed that foreign portfolio investors sold Rs 522 crore ($62.61 million) of shares on a net basis, while domestic institutional investors purchased shares worth Rs 1,208 crore on Monday.

    The telecom industry’s VLR base rose by 2.7mn in Jan-24 vs. the 1.9mn increase in Dec-23. This was led by the reported subscriber base increasing by 2.2mn in Jan-24. While VIL’s VLR subscribers are down by 1.7mn MoM, Bharti/Jio saw VLR subscriber rise of 3.6mn/1.1mn, respectively. In terms of overall subscribers, Jio continued to report the highest addition for the 22nd straight month (at 4.2mn MoM in Jan-24), with Bharti lagging at 0.8mn adds. VIL reported subscriber loss of 1.5mn MoM, as the loss rate picked up from 1.4mn in Dec-23. Jio seems to have gained from the launch of JioBharat phone. Jio dominated the wireless broadband subscriber addition, with increase of 4.2mn; Bharti followed, logging a 2.4mn rise MoM. VIL’s wireless broadband subscriber-count was down by 0.5mn MoM. Jio’s wireline addition rate picked up further, with the addition of 0.25mn subs (vs. 0.23mn adds in Dec-23). Even as Jio and Bharti continue with 5G rollouts, the timing of the tariff hike remains the key trigger. VIL needs a sizable fund-raise to increase capex for restricting its subscriber loss. We continue to favor Bharti and Jio, among telcos.

    Stock Market Live Today: GST collection numbers for March 2024 by Gunjan Prabhakaran, Partner & Leader, Indirect Tax, BDO India  

    The healthy rate of growth of the GST collections on year on year basis reflects growth of the economy as well as improved compliance (aided by the various anti-evasion measures taken by the Government). Increase in the GST collections in FY24 is also aided by the payment of tax liability by the assessees against the notices issued by the tax authorities during FY24 for FY18 and FY19.

    Stock Market Live Today: Motilal Oswal - DALMIA BHARAT: Prices soft in key markets; but volume growth should be better

    (DALBHARA IN, Mkt Cap USD4.5b, CMP INR1992, TP INR2500, 25% Upside, Buy)

    - Dalmia Bharat (DALBHARA)’s key markets (the South and East regions) witnessed a higher price correction (down 8-9% QoQ) vs. other regions (down 3-7% QoQ) in 4QFY24. However, the company is likely to report double-digit volume growth in 4QFY24, supported by healthy demand and market share gains. We cut our EBITDA estimates by 4%/8%/8% for FY24/FY25/FY26 due to weak pricing, which was partly offset by higher volume growth and cost reduction initiatives.

    - Further, a delay in the acquisition of Jaiprakash Associates (JPA)’s cement assets (announced in Dec’22) remains an overhang on the stock. The approval process from various banks is pending and is taking longer than anticipated. However, DALBHARA’s organic expansion plans are on track. It will add clinker and cement capacities of 4.9mtpa each through a mix of greenfield and brownfield expansions by FY25.

    Stock Market Live Today: Motilal Oswal - CONSUMER – THEMATIC: Time to restock! Volume print to improve; risk-reward in favour

    - Consumer staples companies have struggled to maintain volume growth momentum during the last two years, largely due to external challenges. With deep distribution touchpoints and a heavy revenue mix from the highly penetrated traditional categories (such as oral care, hair care, laundry, soaps, etc.), the volume performance of staples reflected the real consumption demand at a pan-India level. This was unlike discretionary companies/categories that have been enjoying market penetration, share gains by organized players, and changes in wallet share. Therefore, while revenue CAGR for staples was at 13%, the same for discretionary was at 28% over the last two years. Such a contrast was not observed in previous phases. 

    - Earnings delivery of the staples companies was not as weak as it was on the volume front. Staples clocked 16% and 9% YoY PAT growth during 9MFY24 and FY23 (broadly similar to historical averages). Despite such healthy earnings, the majority of staples stocks have underperformed because the market was more focused on volume-led earnings growth. Over the last three years, the stock returns of HUL, Dabur, Marico, Emami, and P&G have been lower than their earnings growth. During the same period, discretionary companies have resulted in a better earnings trajectory, leading to a valuation re-rating.

    - We continue to believe that discretionary categories/companies have better growth potential driven by factors such as market penetration, deeper distribution reach, GDP multiplier, higher wallet share, etc. However, we do see growth normalization (settling of pent-up demand) along with the risk of sustaining such high margins amid intensifying competition for many discretionary companies. The risk of earnings cuts, along with a valuation check, is associated with the discretionary companies. However, over the same period, we anticipate volume growth for staples companies to be bottoming out with limited risk of earnings cuts. Given the comfort level with valuation and earnings, we believe that select staple companies offer a better risk-reward compared to several discretionary companies over the next 12-18 months.

    - We recommend increasing portfolio weights for staples companies. We prefer HUL, GCPL, and Dabur in the staples category. In the discretionary category, we continue to favor the jewelry space and prefer Titan
