    Commodities Market Live Today: Oil steadies with stockpile drop and mid east tension to the fore

    Oil steadied as signs of lower US inventories and tensions in the Middle East were balanced by expectations for increased supplies, Bloomberg reported.

    West Texas Intermediate held above $74 a barrel after finishing lower on Tuesday, when global benchmark Brent closed below $80. The American Petroleum Institute reported that nationwide US stockpiles declined by almost 7 million barrels last week, including a drop at the hub at Cushing, Oklahoma. Official figures on holdings are due later on Wednesday.

    In the Middle East, traders were assessing the impact of the latest US and UK strikes against Iran-backed Houthis in Yemen intended to halt attacks on vessels. While a trade group said the US advised ships that continue to transit the Red Sea to do so with “great care,” some owners aren’t resuming passages. Elsewhere, US forces carried out airstrikes on a Tehran-backed militia in Iraq.

    Oil’s been confined to a relatively narrow range in January, with the geopolitical risks countered by expectations that supplies from producers outside OPEC will continue to expand. Major crude trader Gunvor Group Ltd. said that the first half of the year would be dominated by output from outside the cartel that would eventually plateau, with markets set to remain rangebound.

    Stock Market Live Today: India bank liquidity deficit hits record high

    India’s banking system liquidity deficit hit a record high, data showed on Wednesday, amid outflows towards tax payments and limited government spending, with traders anticipating that the central bank will infuse more cash to address the shortfall, a PTI report said.

    The deficit widened to 3.34 trillion rupees ($40.18 billion) as on January 23, nearly tripling from the start of the month, data from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) showed.

    “The widening in deficit is a combination of rise in tax collections and a slowdown in government spending, which has been seen in the last few months,” said A Prasanna, head of research at ICICI Securities Primary Dealership.

    Indian lenders have urged the RBI to ease liquidity conditions as overnight cash rates have stayed above the policy rate.

    On Wednesday, the call rate was at 6.85 per cent and the TREPS rate was at 6.78 per cent, both well above the repo rate of 6.50 per cent.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Tushar Chaudhar of Prabhudas Lilladher on Metals & Mining stocks

    Domestic cost curve inches up further

    § Indian HRC prices declined again by 0.2% WoW to ₹54,000/t from ₹54,100/t a week earlier. Iron ore lumps 63% grade remained flat in the week at ₹7,400/t. The spot spreads increased to ₹18,371/t from ₹18,098/t WoW.

    § Chinese and European HRC prices remained flat at USD 570/t and USD 625/t. Spot spreads for both regions improved by USD4/t to USD 84/t and USD 139/t respectively. Given that Chinese new year is a few weeks away, prices are expected to remain stable on inventory build-up.

    § Coking coal prices cooled 1.7% WoW to USD 331/t while iron ore 62% remained flat WoW at USD 130/t which aided spot spreads to rise in the week.

    § As per recent conclave arranged by Steel Users Federation of India, Steel industry expects Chinese steel demand to contract by 1.5-2% in CY24 due to weak real estate sector outlook, leading to higher exports.

    § Although domestic steel demand is expected to improve post weak 3Q, upcoming general elections can keep demand moderate due to slowdown in infrastructure spending. Steel companies are eyeing export markets given Indian HRC trades at discount on import parity basis. With domestic iron ore prices inching up and stable coking coal, steel companies will have to take price hikes to maintain margins in 4QFY24. Top Picks: NMDC, JSP & HNDL.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Jinesh Joshi of Prabhudas Lilladher  on Zee Entertainment Enterprises

    “We downgrade our rating to ‘REDUCE’ from BUY with revised TP of ₹151 after assigning a multiple of 12x to our Sep-25 EPS of ₹13 as Sony has terminated its merger cooperation agreement with Zee Entertainment Enterprise’s (ZEEL). Apart from sharp de-rating in valuation multiple, we believe dissolution of merger will not only result in a financial strain on ZEEL on account of termination charge, but also creates an uncertainty surrounding the pay-out relating to ICC rights putting its sports aspirations on backburner. In addition, ZEEL is now saddled with irreversible sunk cost of ₹3.7bn incurred towards merger.

    Stock Market Live Today: ICRA Analytics’ daily dossier

    Indian equity markets failed to sustain the initial gains and closed with significant losses, despite having positive global cues. The key benchmark indices were slid down one-way due to heavy sell-off across the sectors as sentiments were dampened following the SEBI’s draft paper that aimed to tighten ultimate beneficial ownership norms for overseas investors with effect from Feb 1, 2024. Muted Q3FY24 earnings of some index heavyweight companies extended the losses further.

    Bond yields were almost steady as market participants awaited fresh triggers and the weekly government bond auction on Thursday in the holiday-truncated week.

    The yield on the 10-year benchmark paper (7.18% GS 2033) was unchanged at 7.18% from the previous close.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Param Desai of Prabhudas Lilladher on Indoco Remedies

    “We cut our FY25/FY26 EPS by ~10%/4% to factor in low margins and lower sales across regulated markets. We downgrade stock from Buy to Accumulate given weak earnings visibility, muted domestic formulation sales. Our numbers do factor in margin recovery with reduction in remediation cost from FY25. Indoco Remedies’ (INDR) Q3FY24 EBITDA was sharply below our estimates led by continued higher remediation cost and lower regulated market sales. The recent OAI to its Goa unit-2 is negative and will restrict growth in US sales in FY24/H1FY25. We expect 18% PAT CAGR over FY23-26E. At CMP, stock is trading at 20.5x FY25E EPS. We downgrade stock to Accumulate from Buy with revised TP of Rs380 valuing at 18x Dec 2025E EPS, as we roll forward. Timely resolution of Goa facility unit-2 is a key for re-rating.”

    Stock Market Live Today: Pre-market views by Avdhut Bagkar of StoxBox.

    On the global front, the S&P 500 climbed to a record-high close on Tuesday as investors digested a mixed bag of early quarterly results and awaited a slew of additional reports from Tesla and other companies later this week. The US economy is maintaining its robustness as traders await key data and central bank meetings later this week. Despite a lack of major data or any Fed speakers, the market pushed back its easing expectations to roughly 125 bps over 2024, down from nearly 175 bps earlier this month, which has helped the Greenback recover. Meanwhile, Japan’s Governor Kazuo Ueda said that easing will still take place even when negative interest rates end. There was no commitment on the timing of when the actual hike would happen. On the commodity front, Oil prices fell on Tuesday, handing back some of the previous day’s gains, as traders weighed rising crude supply in Libya and Norway against production outages in the United States and geopolitical tensions. Furthermore, Gold prices inched higher on Tuesday as investors awaited a slew of US economic data this week for more cues to the Federal Reserve’s interest rate cut timeline. On the domestic front, Indian shares tumbled on Tuesday despite positive cues from global markets. Zee Entertainment plunged over 32% after its merger with Sony’s India unit collapsed whereas the banking stocks suffered losses after HDFC Bank’s Q3FY24 results showed a strain on margins. Indian equities may attempt a pullback rally in early deals on Wednesday amid a largely positive trade in the US market overnight. Furthermore, trends in the GIFT Nifty indicate a positive start for the broader index in India.

    The benchmark index opened 175 points higher and succumbed to selling pressure immediately. As the selling pressure intensified mainly by heavy selling in financial heavyweights led by HDFC Bank, the price action corrected steeply and pared 511 points from the day’s high on relatively higher volume. With this not only did the index mark its 5th distribution day, but the uptrend remains under pressure. It is anticipated to invite further selling pressure on a breach below the support zone of 21000-20900 on a closing basis.

    Stock Market Live Today: Gaurav Jani of Prabhudas Lilladher comments on Axis Bank stock

    “While AXSB delivered a stable quarter balance sheet management remains a key monitorable. Core PPoP beat PLe by 5% led by better NII and lower opex. Asset quality was superior due to lower slippages and healthier recoveries. NIM at 4.06% was protected for Q3’24 as 66% of credit flow was attributable to higher yielding segments. Funding cost may rise at a faster pace in Q4’24. Sequential deposit growth at 5.2% was driven by WTD (+9.4%) which led to reduction in LDR by 1%. RBI directive on unsecured NBFC credit impacted CET-1 by 70bps QoQ (13.7% in Q3’24). Bank expects system loan/deposit growth to converge at 13%; we trim loan CAGR for AXSB by 1% over FY24-26E to 14%. We remain watchful of the interplay between credit and deposits for AXSB since (1) system liquidity is tight and CET-1 is lower while LDR is higher compared to peers and (2) LCR is at 118%. With likely RoA of 1.7% for FY25/26E, we maintain multiple at 2.2x and TP of Rs1,250. Retain ‘BUY’.”

    Stock Market Live Today: OPENING BELL: Indian equities extend decline amidst global uncertainty; analysts warn of continued selling pressure

    Indian benchmark indices, the Sensex and Nifty, extended their downward trajectory by commencing the day on a weak note amidst mixed global signals. In early trade, the 30-share BSE Sensex observed a decline of 99.57 points, settling at 70,270.98. Simultaneously, the NSE Nifty experienced a drop of 23.30 points, reaching 21,215.50.

    Analysts expect selling pressure to continue from foreign portfolio investors while the focus will be on results. They added that tomorrow’s monthly settlement at F&O will keep volatility high while long weekends will keep local participation low.

    Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, said Global sentiments turned cautious after Fitch Group’s statement that South Asian economies would be most affected amid rising hostilities in the Red Sea due to Houthi attacks and India’s economic forecast faces a significant risk on account of a prolonged spell of disruptions.

    Further, BoJ followed China and kept interest rates unchanged, he said.

    “Given weak global cues and mixed set of earnings released so far, the market is likely to consolidate and may drop a little further till the next set of fresh positive triggers, he added.

    According to Pravesh Gour, Senior Technical Analyst, Swastika Investment Ltd., the Nifty index experienced a breakdown marked by a marubozu candle pattern, accompanied by significant trading volume. “Despite attempts, it couldn’t establish control above the 20-Day Moving Average (20-DMA) and underwent a sharp decline, resuming its corrective trajectory. There’s a likelihood of a test at the 50-DMA at 21000, with the subsequent support level at 20800,” he said.

    On the positive side, encountering resistance at 21500 is anticipated, with the 20-DMA around 21700 posing a key challenge as an immediate hurdle, he said. 

    According to him, Bank Nifty achieved its target by breaking down from a head and shoulder formation, breaching the neckline support at Rs. 46950. “This underperformer faced rejection at its 50-day Moving Average (50-DMA) and fell below the 100-day Moving Average (100-DMA). The crucial support at the 200-DMA, positioned around 44650, is expected to attract buying interest. However, sustained weakness may persist if it remains below the 200-DMA. On the positive side, 45500 presents an immediate hurdle, while 46500 acts as a key resistance in any potential pullback rally,” he said.

    Addressing channel hygiene key for restoring distribution moat

    As noted in our recent top-10 themes report (link), General Trade distribution remains key for FMCG players, wherein addressing channel hygiene is crucial. Post Covid-19, shift to modern retail has accelerated, which is also a factor of better urban growth. Our ground checks suggest that distributors, an important leg of General Trade, remain impacted by the modern retail channel dumping products on kirana (retailer) partners, which is why distributors are now looking to onboard more companies (with entry-barrier slackening). Recent distributor margin changes by HUL would be neutral for distributors if demand revives, but hurt them if demand remains weak. Infra costs at the distributor-end are on the rise, which is hurting their profitability; but distributors are compelled to sustain relationships with partner companies owing to the scale of business. We see restoring channel hygiene as being key for reviving the supply-chain moat. This, with the expected recovery in demand, will ease the unrest amid distributors, in our view. We maintain BUY on Dabur, ITC, and Emami; we retain SELL on Colgate.

    Strong beat; next leg of expansion announced 

    Cement : Result Update : January 23, 2024 : TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 4,400 

    JK Cement (JKCE)’s standalone EBITDA grew 2.4x YoY (36% QoQ) to Rs6.1bn, coming in at 15%/7% above consensus/our estimates, respectively. Blended EBITDA/t came in at Rs1,330/t (+2x YoY/29% QoQ) – a 12-quarter-high. The delta was driven by healthy uptick in realizations (+3% QoQ to Rs5,878/t) and lower input costs. Overall volume growth was impressive at 13% YoY to 4.6mt, driven by ramp-up in the recently commissioned Panna plant. JKCE has announced its next leg of growth, with proposed expansion of 3.3mt clinker and 6mt grinding units, post which grey-cement capacity will increase to 30mt (11% CAGR in FY24-27E). Given that such expansions are at capex of USD57/t, return ratios are likely to improve going forward. Factoring-in the Q3FY24 beat, we revise FY25E-26E EBITDA upwards by 3-4%. We maintain our ADD rating on the stock, with revised TP of Rs4,400/share (based on 14x Dec25 EV/E).

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: SONA BLW PRECISION FORGING: Operating performance beat est, led by reduced RM cost and favorable product mix: Motilal Oswal Financial

    (SONACOMS IN, Mkt Cap USD4.1b, CMP INR580, TP INR610, 5% Upside, Neutral)

    EBITDA margin guidance revised to ~28% from earlier guidance of 25-27%

    - SONACOMS’ 3QFY24 results surpassed our estimates, led by better product mix and lower RM costs, resulting in an EBITDA margin of 29.3% (vs. est. 27.8%). Although the operational performance was healthy, we expect the margins to moderate in the future as RM costs and product mix normalize. The company’s focus on expanding in EVs continue with BEV contributing ~30% to the revenue (vs. 26%/27% in FY23/2QFY24). 

    - We largely maintain our FY24E/25E EPS. We believe the current valuations of ~64.6x/49x FY24/25E EPS factor in its strong EV order book as well as superior earnings and return profile. We reiterate our Neutral stance on the stock with a TP of INR610 (based on ~45x Dec’25E consol EPS).

    (AXSB IN, Mkt Cap USD40.4b, CMP INR1089, TP INR1175, 8% Upside, Downgrade to Neutral)

    Cost ratios to remain elevated

    - AXSB reported in-line PAT at INR60.7b (up 4% YoY/3.5% QoQ) in 3QFY24, driven by healthy other income, which was partly offset by an increase in provisions due to AIF-related provisioning.

    - NIMs moderated 10bp QoQ to 4.01%. The management has suggested that funding costs will continue to inch up over the next two quarters. 

    - Loan growth was healthy at 22% YoY/3.9% QoQ, while deposit growth was robust at 5% QoQ. The C/D ratio moderated 110bp QoQ to 92.8%. 

    - Fresh slippages increased to INR37.2b, whereas healthy recoveries led to a decline in the GNPA ratio. The restructured book was under control at 0.18%. 

    - We cut our FY25E EPS by ~8% considering an increase in costs and margin pressures. Moreover, with a high CD ratio being of ~93%, we estimate AXSB to deliver a 15.7% CAGR in loans over FY24-26E, slower than peers’. 

    - Accordingly, we estimate FY25 RoA/RoE of 1.7%/17.4%. We downgrade our rating on AXSB to Neutral with a revised TP of INR1,175 (1.8x Sep’25E ABV)

    (OBER IN, Mkt Cap USD6b, CMP INR1370, TP INR1350, 1% Downside, Neutral)

    Sky City and 360 West witnessed moderation in sales run-rate

    - The company achieved pre-sales of INR7.9b (up 25% YoY, but down 18% QoQ), 51% below our estimate. For 9MFY24, bookings stood at INR22b, down 12% YoY. 

    - The new project at Thane generated bookings of INR2.1b and the traction across other key projects at Goregaon and Mulund remained in line with their historical run-rates, generating sales of INR1.2b and INR2b, respectively. 

    - The decline in sales at Sky City (Borivali) and 360 West impacted the company’s overall performance as the company failed to sustain its usual quarterly run-rate of INR9-10b despite the new launch at Thane. 

    - The Sky City project recorded sales of 40 units worth INR1.5b vs. 73 units booked in 2QFY24. 

    - Collections doubled YoY to INR9b and net debt reduced INR3b to INR21b with D/E of 0.15x. 

    - P&L performance: Revenue decreased 35% YoY to INR10.5b due to higher base as the company commenced revenue recognition from Mulund projects in 3QFY23. Oberoi reported EBITDA of INR5.1b, down 46% YoY with a margin of 48%. Consequently, PAT decreased 49% YoY to INR3.6b.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Hero MotoCorp by Emkay Global Financial

    Strengthens fast-growing 125cc portfolio with a premium launch

    We attended the launch event of HMCL’s two new premium motorcycles – Xtreme 125R (premium 125cc motorcycle) and Mavrick 440 (HMCL-badged version of Harley X440). We came away with positive first impressions for the launches – particularly Xtreme (sporty, performance-oriented with stylish looks and some segment-first features). We believe HMCL has a reasonable ‘right-to-win’ in this fast-growing category, given its strong positioning (over 40% market share in the past); its premiumization journey is continuing well, which, along with ongoing 2W revival incl. in commuter 2Ws (TINA factor at play) keeps us positive on the stock. We retain BUY with unchanged estimates (24% FY23-26E EPS CAGR), TP (Rs4,800); Ola’s proposed IPO poses upside risk of ~Rs240 to our TP on Ather stake

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: IDBI Capital - Zensar Tech (Hold)

    Zensar Technologies Q3 revenue growth was impacted by furloughs in Hi-Tech. Going forward, we expect the company’s revenues to improve, led by the reversal of furloughs and improving deal win trajectory (up 28 per cent y-o-y, book to bill of 1.2x). This, coupled with the company’s intention to invest in capability building, sales, and large deals, means we expect 12 per cent y-o-y growth each for FY25 and FY26.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Emkay Global - Karur Vysya Bank (Buy)

    Karur Vysya Bank continued with its superlative performance, led by healthy credit growth, higher margins (up 25 bps q-o-q, including 19 bps from one-off lumpy corporate recovery), and steady improvement in asset-quality performance (the GNPA ratio was down 15 bps q-o-q to 1.6 per cent), leading to an 8 per cent PAT beat at ₹410 crore (Emkay est. ₹380 crore).

    However, staff costs were significantly high due to the bank’s continued business expansion and recent wage revisions. As per management, investment in AIF stood at ₹11 crore with no step-down exposure and, thus, no need to make any provisions. Management reiterated its focus on sustainably delivering higher profitability (>1.5 per cent RoA) instead of chasing growth.

    Stock Market Live Today: Cautious sentiments prevail in Asian equities as global tensions and economic risks heighten

    Asian stocks started the day cautiously on Wednesday, trading lower, following a mixed close on Wall Street. 

    The Nikkei 225 index, a key benchmark, experienced a 0.34 per cent drop, equivalent to 124.31 points, trading at 36,393.26. Simultaneously, the broader Topix index also saw a 0.47 per cent decrease, or 11.97 points, reaching 2,530.10. South Korea’s KOSPI exhibited weakness, trading 0.60 per cent lower, down by 14.99 points at 2,463.62, while Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 index remained relatively flat with a negative bias, showing a 0.01 per cent decrease, or 1.10 points, at 7,513.80.

    On the preceding day in Wall Street, the Dow Jones Industrial Average experienced a 0.3 per cent decline, closing at 37,905.45. In contrast, the S&P 500 showed a 0.3 per cent increase, and the Nasdaq Composite Index, primarily composed of tech stocks, gained 0.4 per cent.

    “Global sentiments turned cautious after the Fitch Group statement that South Asian economies would be most affected, amid rising hostilities in the Red Sea due to Houthi attacks and India’s economic forecast faces a significant risk on account of a prolonged spell of disruptions,” said Siddhartha Khemka, Head - Retail Research, Motilal Oswal Financial Services.

    Given weak global cues and mixed set of earnings released so far, the market is likely to consolidate and may drop a little further till the next set of fresh positive triggers, he added.

    Meanwhile, “India’s Nifty, by breaking the previous swing low of 21285, has confirmed a lower top and lower bottom formation on the daily chart, indicating a bearish trend reversal,” said Devarsh Vakil, Deputy Head of Retail Research at HDFC Securities.

    Nifty is now headed towards the next support zone of 20850-20900. On the upside, 21750 will act as the short term resistance.
