    Stock market live updates: Motilal Oswal Financial Services’ take on ONGC and OIL

    The India upstream stocks have proven to be strong value plays in recent months, with 

    both ONGC and Oil India trading higher led by robust production growth guidance. We still see another 15-20% of ‘value’ upside’ left in both these stocks; beyond this, we believe growth prospects become paramount for a sustained re-rating. 

    As a result, investor attention for both stocks could soon shift away from valuation discount (vs previous cycle) to assessing volume growth scenarios, analysing operating costs (onshore versus offshore acreage) and the strength and visibility of the exploration and development pipeline. 

    We remain positive on both the stocks and reiterate our BUY rating on ONGC and Oil India with target prices of ₹315 and ₹650, respectively.

    Share market live updates: Anand James, Chief Market Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, on market trends

    Nifty outlook:

    The 22250 region proved stiff yet again, and the turn lower thereof found enough momentum to test the 22000 vicinity, only to see bargain hunting surfacing again. While this was encouraging towards an early return to the 22450-550 trajectory, we feel that the trend is evenly poised with several ifs and buts and hence is not as directional as was seen at the start of the week. Push above 22131 could however signal strength. - Read more

    Derivative outlook:

    Nifty weekly contract has highest open interest at 22500 for Calls and 21500 for Puts while monthly contracts have highest open interest at 23000 for Calls and 22000 for Puts. Highest new OI addition was seen at 22200 for Calls and 21500 for Puts in weekly and at 22200 for Calls and 22200 for Puts in monthly contracts. FIIs increased their future index long position holdings by 8.23%, increased future index shorts by 1.46% and in index options by 19.09% decrease in Call longs, 32.17% decrease in Call short, 30.82% decrease in Put longs and 41.04% decrease in Put shorts. - Read more

    USD-INR outlook:

    Slow but continued slippage since the start of the week has left USDINR without strength to bounce back despite near 82.9. We lie in wait for a break of 82.78-83.1 region for further directional cues.

    Stock market live news: Prabhudas Lilladher’s take on ABB India

    ABB India (ABB IN) - Amit Anwani - Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt. Ltd.

    Rating: ACCUMULATE | CMP: ₹4,985 | TP: ₹5,329

    Q4CY23 Result Update – Healthy performance with improved profitability

    Quick Pointers:

    Order inflows grew 34.8% YoY to ₹3,150 crore, aided by a large order in Motion segment for traction converter from a Railway customer.

    Negative impact of ₹10.5 crore from exchange and commodity variation (vs ₹30.6 crore gain in Q4CY22).

    We revise our CY24/25E EPS estimates by +3.4%/7.6% factoring in continued strong domestic demand and premiumisation. ABB India (ABB) reported healthy quarterly performance with revenue growing 13.6% YoY and EBITDA margin rising by 12bps YoY to 15.1%. Domestic market is expanding faster than exports due to better investment momentum. Contributions from new segments such as data centers, rail & metro, renewables, and electronics may be small but are growing rapidly with high order inflows. Meanwhile, ‘low-growth’ core sectors such as cement, oil gas, metals, ports, etc. which contribute significantly to the order book have been muted but are gradually picking up momentum. Despite growing traction in large long-cycle projects, we expect margins to remain steady on the back of improving mix, continued premiumisation, and better pricing and capacity utilisation.

    We remain positive on ABB given 1) increasing traction for energy efficient products, 2) changing customer preference towards premium quality products, 3) diversified business model, 4) focus on high growth segments such as Data Centers, Electronics, Rail & Metro, Renewables, etc., and 5) strong domestic order pipeline. The stock is trading at a P/E of 72.2x/60.8x CY24/25E. We maintain ‘Accumulate’ rating with a revised TP of ₹5,329 (₹4,950 earlier) valuing it at a P/E of 65x CY25 (same as earlier).

    Share market live updates: Here’s what VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, said on market trends

    “The underlying strength of the ongoing market rally is getting widely acknowledged. This explains the FII buying, though marginal, yesterday when the US 10-year bond yield was around 4.3 percent. DIIs have been smart to buy continuously when the FIIs have been selling. So, for DIIs there is room to book some profits, which they did yesterday. In the tug of war between FIIs and DIIs in recent years, DIIs have been the clear winners. So, watch out for the DII action.

    “An important trend now is the huge delivery based buying in the private banks, which are even now attractively valued in this market with elevated valuations. Switching from over-valued mid and small caps to large private banks would be a smart move.”

    “Gold and silver experienced a dip following the release of the FOMC meeting minutes on Wednesday, as the tone of Federal Reserve members was slightly more hawkish than anticipated. The Fed remains cautious about rising inflation and seeks further progress towards achieving its 2% target before considering easing measures. However, the outcomes of the FOMC meeting minutes aligned with market expectations, yielding no significant surprises. The steady trading of the dollar index tempered gains in precious metals, yet geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and volatility in global financial markets could lend support to gold and silver prices at lower levels. Gold has support levels at $2012-1998 and resistance at $2039-2051, while silver has support at $22.74-21.61 and resistance at $23.08-23.22. In terms of INR, gold finds support at ₹61,940-61,770 with resistance at ₹62,350 and ₹62,520. Silver’s support lies at ₹70,040-69,580, with resistance at ₹71,050 and ₹71,780.”


    “Crude oil experienced significant volatility, initially plunging in early trading before rebounding from lows following Israeli air strikes on Hamas. Geopolitical tensions in the Middle East are bolstering crude oil prices at lower levels. However, the market remains unsurprised by the FOMC meeting minutes released on Wednesday. The API report, also released on Wednesday, indicated a 7.2 million barrel increase in U.S. crude oil inventories for the week ending February 16, potentially limiting crude oil gains. The U.S. EIA will release its weekly inventory report later today. We anticipate continued volatility in today’s crude oil session, with support expected at $77.10–76.40 and resistance at $78.50-79.10. In terms of INR, crude oil is anticipated to find support at ₹6,360-6,290 and resistance at ₹6,510-6,590.”

    Market live updates: Silver moves up to $22.87

    Silver has held steady as traders alter their positions for the Fed’s rate cuts, while escalating Middle East tensions are fuelling some safe-haven flows. The FOMC minutes revealed that the Fed is not in a rush to lower interest rates. Initially expecting a reduction in March, traders now see a 53% chance of a 25bps drop in June. Despite present swings, silver prices are predicted to rise this year due to a weaker currency and lower Treasury yields caused by the Fed’s expected shift towards a more accommodating monetary policy.

    Stock market live updates: ABB India surpasses estimates in Q4, driven by margins

    ABB INDIA: Benefiting from quality, localization and penetration

    (ABB IN, Mkt Cap USD12.7b, CMP INR4985, TP INR5800, 16% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal

    ABB’s PAT came in ahead of our estimate in 4QCY23, as margins significantly beat our expectation. Revenue growth was lower than our estimate due to a higher share of its long-duration projects business. Order inflows have plateaued over the last four quarters and future growth will depend on how fast the orders are finalized and how fast the private sector recovers. ABB has been benefiting from strong demand for quality players across industries - government or private. With a deeper penetration across market segments and geographies and control over costs via localization, ABB has been able to gain higher margins. We continue to believe that ABB’s addressable market is expanding fast across segments like transmission, railways, data center, electronics, and PLI-led capex. We expect the company’s margins to remain strong at around 14%. We raise our CY24/CY25 EPS estimates by 2%/4.4% and increase our DCF-based TP to INR5,800 (from INR5,480), implying a P/E of 65x on Mar’26E EPS. ABB remains our top pick in the sector.

    Stock market live today: Motilal Oswal maintains neutral stance on ALKEM stock

    ALKEM: Focus remains on DF/US; valuations priced in

    (ALKEM IN, Mkt Cap USD7.8b, CMP INR5410, TP INR5160, 5% Downside, Neutral)

    Motilal Oswal

    - ALKEM is one of the pharmaceutical companies with the highest proportion of (66% of total sales 9MFY24) sales from the domestic formulation (DF) segment.

    - While it continues to outperform the industry in the DF segment, the outlook is dependent on the variability of season and acute infections as it derives 82% of DF sales from acute therapies.

    - After muted performance in the US generics business (23% of sales) over FY18-23, there has been some recovery in 9MFY24. The sound compliance track-record and a healthy product pipeline would enable 6% sales CAGR in CC terms to USD394m over FY24-26.

    - Further, ALKEM is focusing on the biosimilar and CDMO business through Enzene biosciences and expects to reach breakeven in FY25.

    - Over FY18-23, ALKEM has delivered 13%/10%/12% Revenue/EBITDA/PAT CAGR. However, ROE decreased from 15% in FY18 to 14% in FY23.

    - Considering 9% earnings CAGR and return ratio stabilizing at ~18% over FY24-26, we value ALKEM at 25x 12M (in line with its 10-yr average and 17% discount to sector average) forward earnings to arrive at a target price of INR5160. We believe the current valuation and ~65% stock appreciation over the past one year adequately factor the upside in earnings. We reiterate our Neutral stance on the stock.

    Oil & Gas outlook: Motilal Oswal sees continued growth opportunities

    - Despite recent re-rating, we still see another 15-20% of ‘value’ upside’ left in both ONGC/OINL; beyond this, we believe growth prospects become paramount for a sustained re-rating.

    - As a result, investor attention for both stocks could soon shift away from valuation discount (vs previous cycle) to assessing volume growth scenarios, analyzing operating costs (onshore versus offshore acreage) and the strength and visibility of the exploration and development pipeline.

    - We see strong earnings growth catalysts for both stocks (IPO for NRL, start of operations at overseas assets such as Libya, Mozambique and Venezuela and turnaround of operations at OPaL) and maintain our Buy rating on both.

    “Following the 63-80 per cent rally in the stock prices of Indian Oil Corporation (IOC), Bharat Petroleum (BP) and Hindustan Petroleum (HP), we run a three way sensitivity analysis to get a sense of what is priced-in. 

    Our calculations suggests these stocks are pricing-in much higher than historical marketing margins, a continuation of near-record refining margins and a notable premium to the global peer average EV/Ebitda multiple. 

    While a cut in the retail prices of diesel or petrol looks less likely now, a 5-7 per cent rally in crude prices may again raise worries over marketing margins. The government’s fiscal consolidation goal may make it look at avenues of raising fuel taxes after the elections. These, along with large global refining capacity additions, may soon raise doubt over the continuation of current high margins; we retain our SELL ratings on IOC, BP and HP.”

    Market live news: Elara Securities’ take on Indian real estate market

    Strong quarter ends a bonanza CY23

    Residential segment continues to shine

    Despite the uptick in interest rates, escalating prices and global challenges, the housing market retained an optimistic outlook, marked by soaring property sales. This was driven by growing consumer confidence, shift to luxury housing, and the resilience of the Indian economy. Per property consultant Anarock, in CY23, new launches showed a significant annual growth of 25% (~445k units were launched in top-seven cities). Sales surpassed all prior benchmarks, posting a decadal high of 476k units and a yearly growth of 31%. 

    Demand was backed by robust supply pipeline, with many branded developers having announced new launches and entry into newer markets. In Q3FY24, both new launches and sales reached record highs, with launches totaling 117k units, up 26% YoY, and sales at 127k units, up 38% YoY. Prominent grade A developers such as Brigade Enterprises, Godrej Properties and Sobha Realty posted best-ever quarterly sales.

    Commercial segment – Traction in leasing

    Despite global volatility, India’s commercial real estate market was resilient in 2023. Per Knight Frank, office leasing grew a notable 15% YoY, resulting in absorption of 59.6msf in CY23, within striking distance of historical highs. This growth is predominantly led by employees returning to offices and the expansion of global companies’ operations in India. With the increase in transaction volumes, rentals also stabilized in various micro-markets.

    Chennai made it to the top-three list for the first time, with ~2x leasing activity as compared with 2022, primarily due to a surge in demand from global capability centres (GCCs). Pan-India, GCCs accounted for 37% of leasing transactions.

    Outlook: Anticipating further growth

    India Real Estate breached the previous peak levels (in CY22) led by sustained demand momentum. And CY24 is on course to continue the trend provided no major headwinds obstruct construction activities. The industry is witnessing demand consolidation towards grade A developers, a trend that is projected to persist. The launch pipeline by these developers is expected to strengthen further through new land acquisitions in strategic locations and growth corridors.

    Office portfolios may expand further as hybrid working evolves with strong ‘office-first’ approach. India’s growth ecosystem attracts both domestic and foreign occupiers, with global corporations making substantial investments and domestic occupiers expanding. These dynamics are set to bolster office market fundamentals in 2024.

    Stock market live news: Despite RBI restrictions, MFs hiked stake in Paytm in January

    Mutual funds holding in troubled Paytm (One 97 Communication) have increased 70 per cent to ₹3,384 crore in January compared with ₹1,995 crore in December as they ramped up exposure to average cost. Investors who have bought stock at a high price tend to buy more of the same stock when it falls. This helps them bring down the overall cost of investment.

    In volume terms, fund houses hiked their holdings by 41 per cent in January to 4.4 crore shares, compared with 3.2 crore in December.

    bl analysis| GPT Healthcare IPO: Key things to know and should you subscribe?

    GPT Healthcare’s IPO is fairly valued at 32 times annualised H1FY24 earnings, which can be supported by its growth plans in existing and new ventures. 

    But the steep discount to peer group valuation, which stands at 59 times FY24 EPS, may not contract anytime soon owing to the lower operating metrics.

    Market live news| Stock to sell today: UPL

    UPL’s stock has been depreciating steadily since early last year. It faced a resistance between ₹780 and ₹800 and began to decline. A couple of weeks ago, UPL broke below an important support at ₹500.

    This has increased the probability of further fall in the share price of UPL. Although there has been an increase in price recently, it is likely to be a corrective rally. Support-turned-resistance of ₹500 is likely to invite more bears, weighing on the stock.

    Stock market live updates: Japan stocks, US futures rise as Nvidia impresses

    Japanese stocks and US futures rose Thursday in a sign of fresh momentum in global equities after Nvidia Corp. unveiled a better-than-expected revenue forecast, per a Bloomberg report.

    Japanese shares rallied, supported by a depressed yen, pushing the Nikkei 225 Index to within a whisker of its 1989 record high. South Korean shares also rose, while Australian shares erased early losses. The US futures climbed, reversing a small decline for the Nasdaq 100 and bolstering a small gain for the S&P 500, the report added.

    Moves in US futures were spurred on by Nvidia results. The tech company’s shares soared as much as 11% in post-market trade after it said first-quarter revenue would likely hit $24 billion, above prior estimates of around $22 billion.
