    ICRA view in dairy sector

    Domestic milk supply was impacted in FY2023 due to the incidence of Lumpy Skin Disease (LSD) in cattle and its impact on the milk yields during the flush season, thus resulting in a demand-supply gap as demand remained steady. ICRA expects healthy improvement in milk supply by H2 FY2024 as these factors are likely to ease.

    Raw milk demand remained buoyant in FY2023 with both liquid milk and value-added dairy product (VADP) segments witnessing a healthy volume growth. There is 8-10% increase in liquid milk sales volume despite multiple price hikes undertaken by dairy companies, whereas there is 18-22% increase in VADP volumes; VADPs continued to witness strong volumes, which along with price increases, resulted in revenue growth of 28-32% in FY2023.

    V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services on markets awaiting Fed chief’s comment

    Globally market participants will be closely watching the Fed chief Jerome Powell’s comments about the disinflation process in the US and the likely trend in interest rates. A 25 bp rate hike, already discounted by the market, will not trigger any market move. But if the Fed chief indicates that inflation is coming under control and, therefore, no further rate hikes are needed, that will be a big trigger for markets to move up. But such an outcome is highly unlikely since the Fed will play it safe even if inflation is coming under control.

    While the range bound movement of the Indian market is likely to continue today, individual stock action in response to results and news will happen. Q1 results of Tata Motors and their decision to cancel DVR shares and the good results of L&T and the share buy back news are sentient positive.

    Suman Bannerjee, CIO, Hedonova, a US based Hedge Fund on the IMF India’s GDP forecast

    India’s GDP will rise due to strong tech and service sector growth, increased foreign investment, favorable demographic dividends, governmental policy reforms facilitating business, and a predicted recovery in consumer spending post-Covid-19, contributing to a healthier overall economic outlook. The forecast of 6.1% is pessimistic, I expect it to be 6.3%. A weak rupee has fostered more exports which has reduced the current account deficit and increased remittance income from $55.6 billion to $62.3 billion. Oil prices have been lower due to purchases from Russia and Iran over Norway, USA and Saudi Arabia and overall lower oil prices have kept the balance of payment account in check.

    Nuvama Alternative & Quantitative Research view on Tata Motors conversion DVR share to ordinary shares

    Putting an end to any guesswork - Tata Motors Board have approved a Scheme of Arrangement for reduction of capital of the Company by way of cancellation of the entire ‘A’ Ordinary Shares of the Company and issuance and allotment of the Ordinary Shares.

    🔹 A. Swap Ratio– The holder on Record will receive 7 fully paid up Tata Motors (TTMT) shares for every 10 Tata Motors DVR (TTMT/A).

    🔹 B. Spread – The spread is available at 20% (favorable to DVR holder) but tomorrow (Wednesday) we should see TTMT/A significantly O/P the ordinary shares so capturing 20% or lucrative spread won’t be practically possible.

    Two Scenarios–

    ▫️ Existing Holder - If tomorrow/near term the spread trades around 8% to 10% +/- then existing DVR/ordinary share spread holders should unwind their position.

    ▫️ Fresh Arb Position - Considering around 12 to 14 months’ time for conversion then a as per Nuvama Alternative, very ideal spread to set up a fresh position should be 15%.

    🔹 C. Approvals Required– The completion of below approvals could take about 12 to 14 months’ time


    ▫️Shareholders & Creditors and


    🔹 D. Key Shareholders – The biggest size (19.4% of equity) is held by ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund. They have been a long term holder and certainly their conviction continues to pay off.

    🔹 E. Indices Angle – TTMT/DVR is not a constituent of most of the widely tracked passive indices like Nifty 50 , Sensex and MSCI. The stock is just a member of FTSE and have negligible weight of 14bps.

    Nasdaq rises on AI excitement ahead of Alphabet and Microsoft earnings

    The tech-heavy Nasdaq closed higher on Tuesday, leading gains on Wall Street amid investor excitement about artificial intelligence before earnings reports from megacap technology companies Alphabet and Microsoft after the bell.

    Both Microsoft and Alphabet have launched an array of AI products since OpenAI, backed by Microsoft, released ChatGPT in late 2022. Investors expect the new products will help tech giants offset a slowdown in their cloud businesses.

    Shares in the owner of Google and the maker of Windows climbed 0.6% and 1.7%, respectively. “When you have this much enthusiasm for a specific investing theme, you don’t need much of a reason for markets to move. It’s inertia,” said Steve Sosnick, chief strategist at Interactive Brokers.

    With the U.S. central bank on track for another 25-basis point interest rate hike on Wednesday, policymakers face a choice over how much weight to put on recent economic data.

    The tech-heavy Nasdaq Composite index has rallied this year, helped by outsized gains in rate-sensitive megacap growth companies and hopes for an end to the U.S. Federal Reserve’s tightening cycle.

    Companies outside tech are also performing well as lower valuations attract investors.

    The blue-chip Dow inched up for 13th day in a row, even as a 0.87% slide in Boeing capped gains.

    RTX tumbled 10.2% after saying many of its Pratt & Whitney GTF engines that power Airbus A320neo jets will need “accelerated removals and inspections”.

    The S&P composite 1500 passenger airlines sub index dropped 3.45%, bogged down by a 9.7% fall in Alaska Air after the airline’s annual revenue growth outlook missed expectations. - Reuters

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 26.83 points, or 0.08%, to 35,438.07, the S&P 500 gained 12.82 points, or 0.28%, to 4,567.46 and the Nasdaq Composite added 85.69 points, or 0.61%, to 14,144.56.

    Volume on U.S. exchanges was 9.75 billion shares, compared with the 10.32 billion average for the full session over the last 20 trading days.

    The S&P 500 posted 37 new 52-week highs and no new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 74 new highs and 101 new lows.

    Asian markets weaker on Fed rate hike expectations; Australian shares Up, Hong Kong and China stocks dip

    Asian markets were trading mostly weaker on Wednesday ahead of the U.S. Federal Reserve’s expected interest rate rise to be delivered later in the day, as investors also weighed the likelihood of a Chinese economic stimulus package.

    MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was flat, after U.S. stocks ended the previous session with mild gains. The index is up 3.8% so far this month.

    The yield on benchmark 10-year Treasury notes rose to 3.8924%, compared with its U.S. close of 3.912% on Tuesday.

    The two-year yield, which rises with traders’ expectations of higher Fed fund rates, touched 4.8848% compared with a U.S. close of 4.893%.

    Australia was the only major market across the Asia Pacific region to see shares rise, with the S&P/ASX 200 index up 0.81%. Japan’s Nikkei stock index was off 0.12%.

    In Hong Kong, the Hang Seng index was down 0.54% and China’s blue chip CSI300 index was off 0.13% in early trade.

    Positive sentiment returned to China’s market on Tuesday, when the CSI 300 Index snapped a six-day losing streak by closing up nearly 3% to record the best day since last November.
