    Stock Market Updates: Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services, comments on markets

    “Aligned with global trends, the domestic market sustained its consolidation pattern, ending close to 22,000. While key data such as US GDP and inflation during the week may provide some clues on future rate cut paths, the fiscal year-ending truncated week, coupled with reduced trading volumes and monthly expiry, are likely to contribute to volatility. Generally, midcaps are performing well post the consolidation of the last 2-3 weeks, while the IT sector continued to experience sluggishness following weak global IT spending forecasts.”

    Bharti Airtel’s arm Bharti Hexacom on Tuesday said it has fixed a price band of Rs 542 to Rs 570 per share for its Rs 4,275-crore initial public offering (IPO).

    The initial share-sale of the telecom operator’s arm will be open for public subscription during April 3-5, and the bidding for anchor investors will open for a day on April 2, the company said in a public notice.

    This will mark the first public offering in the 2024-25 fiscal year.

    The company’s IPO is entirely an offer-for-sale (OFS) of 7.5 crore equity shares, indicating a 15 per cent stake by Telecommunications Consultants India Ltd, with no fresh issue component.

    Commodities Market Live Today: Gold holds tight range as focus turns to US inflation data

    Gold prices were stuck in a tight range on Tuesday as investor focus turns to U.S. inflation data due later this week, which could shed more light on the timing of the Federal Reserve’s first interest rate cut this year.

    Spot gold was flat at $2,170.59 per ounce, as of 0310 GMT. U.S. gold futures edged 0.2% lower to $2,171.20 per ounce.

    “We are lacking fresh catalysts, but for now the market seems to be consolidating - taking the proverbial breath after a fairly aggressive run,” Kyle Rodda, a financial market analyst at said.

    “The next move probably hinges on this week’s PCE Index release. Evidence of further disinflation in the U.S., which would ease fears of prices accelerating or at least re-anchoring at a higher level, would be very bullish for gold.” - Reuters

    Commodities Market Live Today: Copper near two-week low as yuan weakens

    Most base metals fell on Tuesday, with copper prices in London falling to their lowest levels in nearly two weeks, on a weaker Chinese yuan.

    Three-month copper on the London Metal Exchange (LME) fell 0.4% to $8,834 per metric ton by 0448 GMT. The contract dropped as much as 0.7% earlier in the session to $8,810, the lowest since March 13.

    The most-traded May copper contract on the Shanghai Futures Exchange (SHFE) declined 0.8% to 71,890 yuan ($9,960.8) a ton. It hit as low as 71,720 yuan earlier in the session, the lowest since March 15.

    The China’s yuan eased against the dollar due to expectations that easier monetary policy at home and a strengthening dollar will lead to more weakness in the Chinese currency.

    China is the world’s biggest metals consumer and imports many metals, so a weakness in the yuan softens Chinese purchasing power for greenback-priced commodities. - Reuters

    Here is the this week’s market report from Arvinder Singh Nanda of Master Capital Services

    The FOMC’s decision to hold interest rates steady at 5.25-5.5% reflects confidence in the US market’s upward economic trajectory. Despite maintaining a forecast of lowering rates to 4.6% by 2024, the latest “dot plot” indicates a shift in expectations, with fewer members anticipating multiple rate cuts this year. With signs of economic resilience and a willingness to tolerate temporary inflation fluctuations, the Federal Reserve is Fuelling Bullish Sentiment in US Markets

    Similarly, as anticipated, the People’s Bank of China maintained unchanged lending rates in March, keeping the five-year rate steady at 3.95% after a 25 basis points reduction in February, aligning with efforts to boost economic growth amid property sector challenges and low consumer confidence.

    India’s HSBC flash manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI) reached a 14-year high of 59.2 in March, indicating significant expansion in the manufacturing sector. Despite a slight decline in the flash services PMI, the overall composite PMI rose to an eight-month high of 61.3, signaling robust economic activity. Both manufacturing and composite PMIs have consistently remained above the 50-point threshold for expansion, showcasing sustained growth. The improvement in PMI figures reflects India’s resilient economic performance, with positive implications for future growth prospects.

    “In a landscape marked by economic shifts, the steady hand of the Federal Reserve, along with the unwavering stance of the People’s Bank of China, India’s impressive PMI figures underscore resilience in the face of challenges. As value investors, we recognize that amidst volatility lies opportunity, and these indicators offer valuable insight for prudent long-term investments.”

    The overall Indian market performed better for the week. Realty, Auto, Metal, Energy, PSU Banks, Media, and Oil & Gas sectors were up, and the sector that fell the most was the IT sector. FII were net sellers Rs 8,365 crores and DII were net buyers 19251 crores.

    The key benchmark indices witnessed a roller-coaster move before closing the week in positive territory. Initially, prices declined to a five-week low amid escalating concerns about froth building in the midcap and smallcap segments. Nifty and Sensex prices settled the week at 22096.75 & 72831.94 up 0.33% and 0.26% respectively. However, the market saw a rebound as bargain hunters stepped in following the announcement from U.S. monetary authorities indicating a potential series of interest rate cuts throughout the year. Policymakers intend to reduce interest rates three times this year, aligning with the quarterly forecasts from December. Investor sentiment was further buoyed by optimistic forecasts of robust manufacturing and service sector activities in India for March. Additionally, the U.S. 10-year bond yield retreated from a nearly three-month high, reflecting increasing expectations of a reduction in the key benchmark rate.

    In Nifty, the prices are expected to be in the range of 21,750-22,350 levels and if the index decisively closes below 21,800 then 21,650 may be the next support for the Nifty 50, while the immediate resistance is likely to be 22200 and then 22,300. Sustaining above 22000 could pull Nifty towards the crucial overhead resistance around 22,200-22,400 levels in the short term. Any decline from 21850 could drag the Nifty down to 21,700 level again in the near term.

    In Banknifty, strong support is currently placed at the 46000 level. The Bank Nifty index persists in a “buy on decline” stance until the support below 45800 is convincingly surpassed on a closing basis. In upcoming levels, we can expect R1 to be placed at 47000 levels and S1 to be placed at 46200 levels. Over the short term, the index could move towards 47,500; a decisive move beyond 47,200 might propel it towards 48000.

    Stock Market Live Today: Wealthmills Securities: Global Central Banks’ rate decisions and market outlook

    Wealthmills Securities

    Investors closely monitored the rate decision by global central banks. Fed maintained status quo and the ‘dot plot’ reflected the possibility of 3-rate cut this year. BoE also hinted at the likelihood of rate cuts. Swiss National Bank sprang into action as it announced a 25bps rate cut. On the other hand, BoJ ended the negative interest rate cycle after 17-years. The focus in the ongoing holiday-shortened week will shift towards PCE data. In Jan’24, headline PCE and core PCE inflation was at 2.4% and 2.8% respectively. It is expected to inch up to 2.5%. Thus, remaining far off from the Fed’s target of 2%. Separately in Japan, services PPI edged up to 2.1% in Feb’24 (same rate as Jan’24).

    Global stock indices ended lower. Post the rally in US indices, the week started on a sombre note as investors tried to assess the future path of interest rate ahead of the release of key inflation figure. Amongst other indices, Nikkei (1.2%) dropped the most followed by losses in Shanghai Comp (0.7%). Sensex is trading lower in the morning session today while other Asian indices are trading mixed.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Karnataka Bank Poised for Growth Rejuvenation, LKP Research Recommends BUY

    LKP Research

    Karnataka Bank is witnessing structural transformation under new management, which has taken various steps in the previous year. The reorganization of several departments, making robust underwriting process and cross selling opportunities are few of them. The bank has a mediocre track record. The period of FY14-20 was stressed period of the bank, whereas FY05-13 was a stable period. Post-covid the bank has been witnessing slower growth because of structural changes. Around one-third of key management team has changed in last two years which includes, CEO, CFO, CPO and CIO. The bank is poised for a growth rejuvenation aided by comfortable LDR (74% as on 3QFY24) and ample liquidity (LCR of 266%). In near term, the major growth is expected to come from AA and AAA rated corporate loans. However, retail loan pick up would take time as organization changes are in progress and implementation process (cannot be quantified) will be sooner than expected.

    Moreover, we expect the bank’s margin (3.3% as on 3QFY24) to stay stable given granular deposit franchise (78% LCR retail deposits) and meaningful contribution of MCLR (22% contribution) and fixed rate (22% contribution) linked loans. Along with asset quality improvement, we expect the credit cost to remain benign. The capital infusion (₹15 billion) would further strengthen the CET-1, which may dilute the ROE by 20bps however, provide growth in mid run. We have conservatively estimated FY26E ROA/ROE of 1.2%/14.8% against the management guidance of 1.4%/16%. The improving growth, efficiency and profitability may drive re-rating for the bank as it trades below its book value (trailing P/B of 0.9x). We are recommending BUY given favourable risk reward.

    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex, Nifty open lower; volatility expected before monthly F&O settlement

    Indian benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, started Tuesday with a negative bias following a long weekend. Analysts anticipate market volatility before the monthly F&O settlement. Additionally, adjustments in accounts as fiscal 2024 concludes are expected to contribute to market volatility. 

    In early trade, the 30-share BSE Sensex declined by 183.02 points to 72,648.92, while the NSE Nifty dropped 43.10 points to 22,053.65. Experts said stocks are likely to gain towards the weekend due to mutual funds’ NAV propping. However, with Friday being a holiday due to “Good Friday,” analysts expect trading interest to remain low. The domestic markets remained volatile during the week, with the expectations and outcome of the FOMC meeting being the focal point.

    With the FOMC meeting indicating rate cuts in its announcement, sentiment improved marginally towards the end of the week. “Going forward, volatility is expected to be at the forefront as valuation-related concerns still linger. The earnings season will be critical to gauge the actual “froth” in the markets,” said Joseph Thomas, Head of Research, Emkay Wealth Management.

    However, equities across the Asia-Pacific region were mixed in early deal Tuesday.

    Analysts expect the market to remain stable and may recover in the second half of the trading session. However, the focus would be on foreign portfolio investors, who, of late, turned sellers. They said debts will attract more inflows going forward.

    V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, said: “An interesting feature of the foreign portfolio investment in India this fiscal is the steady growth in debt investment in sharp contrast to the volatile equity investment. This rising trend in debt investment is evident in March, too, with inflows of ₹13,223 crore in debt through 22nd March. The fundamental reason for this sustained FPI flow into debt is the inclusion of Indian bonds in the JP Morgan EM Bond Fund and Bloomberg Bond Index, which is expected to bring in around $25 billion. This investment will begin only by June 2024, and, therefore, FPIs are doing some front-running in view of this potential investment, he said.

    FPI inflows into debt are likely to continue going forward. However, a sharp surge in debt flows is unlikely since the US bond yields have also risen in recent days. If the differential between developed market bond yields, particularly US bonds, and Indian bond yields decline, the debt inflows will moderate, he further said. Some analysts expect a recent strong correction in mid- and small-cap has provided buying opportunities at select counters.

    According to Emkay Global Research, “the correction in March is an entry opportunity from a 6-12 month perspective, in our opinion.” Stretched valuations catalysed the fall, and there are worries about liquidity risk in SMID funds. Fundamentals remain strong with broad-based earnings growth continuing in FY25, albeit with some deceleration, it said, adding that “We expect the market to rebound in 3-6 months, when SMIDs would start to outperform again and the ‘hide in large-caps’ trade would unwind.”

    Gold prices rose slightly, helped by a lower dollar, as investors turned their attention to U.S. inflation data anticipated later this week, which might offer further insight on the timing of the Federal Reserve’s first interest rate decrease of the year. Despite recent strong inflation readings, Fed members stated that they planned to lower interest rates by three-quarters of a percentage point by the end of 2024. Austan Goolsbee, President of the Chicago Fed Bank, stated on Monday that at the Fed’s policy meeting last week, he pencilled in three rate cuts this year.

    Stock Market Live Today: Asia-Pacific Banks Not Feeling the Heat from Final Basel Rules: Fitch

    Fitch Ratings-Barcelona/Hong Kong-24 March 2024: The majority of APAC banking jurisdictions are set to take the latest global iteration of Basel capital standards in their stride, says Fitch Ratings.

    Banking groups in most APAC markets have been able to absorb the moderate increases in capital requirements required under the final Basel III standards, due to prevailing conservative regulatory approaches and less extensive use of internal models within the region. Few have implemented the rules in full so far, but we expect the transition will not have a substantial impact on capital requirements over the next two years - by which time adoption should be complete in most major APAC jurisdictions. This contrasts with US bank regulators’ estimate that adoption would cause a 16% increase in common equity requirements for large US banks - although the actual impact is likely to be lower if US authorities adopt less onerous rules - as suggested by the Federal Reserve Chair earlier in March 2024.

    Australia adopted the final Basel III package from 1 January 2023, which resulted in reported domestic bank common equity Tier 1 ratios improving by up to 100bp for the major banks, due to an easing in some of the conservative risk-weighted asset (RWA) calculations in place prior to the switch. Similarly, Indonesia’s pilot application of revised standardised approaches from January 2023 improved Tier 1 capital ratios initially by up to 300bp.

    These observations align with the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision’s (Basel Committee) March 2024 monitoring report. This estimates, using end-June 2023 balance sheets, that a fully phased-in implementation of the final Basel III framework could lower tier-1 minimum required capital for internationally active large APAC banks (disclosed in the publication as the ’Rest of the world’ category, but predominantly APAC) by an average of 0.8%. This compares with its estimated tier-1 requirements being 18.3% and 1.3% higher for the large European and Americas banks, respectively, albeit based on a full transposition of Basel rules, which sometimes differ significantly from actual legislative proposals.

    China launched its domestic implementation of final Basel III at the start of 2024, and will be followed by Japanese internationally active banks from end-March. Fitch does not expect the Japanese megabanks will report a significant impact in the first year of implementation, with the exception of Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group, Inc. (A-/Stable/a-) where removal of capital floor-related buffers will reduce its overall RWAs. Singaporean banks will go live under the new regime from July, and then Hong Kong and Malaysian banks from January 2025. We believe they will do so largely faithfully, since authorities in these major systems are Basel Committee members, and so committed to applying the final Basel III framework.

    South Korea, another Basel Committee member, has already implemented the revised credit risk, market risk, and credit-valuation adjustment measurements required under the final Basel standards in 2023, along with preferential risk-weightings to corporates and SMEs, as part of their pandemic era relief package. India has yet to publicly disclose its implementation timescales, although as a Basel member jurisdiction it will be under moral suasion for a timely and full implementation.

    Authorities in other APAC systems, but particularly within emerging markets, have generally taken a more conservative prudential approach, and do not permit using internal models (with a few exceptions). As such, these jurisdictions face less impetus to implement the final Basel III framework - including the output floor that ties modelled estimates to a fixed proportion of standardised supervisory risk-weightings. Vietnam, for example, only transitioned fully to the Basel II framework in 2023, and we do not expect a transition to Basel III rules in the next two years.

The rally in IT services stocks over the last year is one such example and the results from Accenture on Thursday are a wake-up call for investors riding this rally wherein stock prices and fundamentals have got decoupled.

    Asian stocks are trading mixed following a retreat in US equities after the S&P 500 Index reached multiple record highs, leading to concerns that the market may have advanced too rapidly.

    The Japanese Nikkei 225 index is up 34.55 points (0.08%) at 40,448.67, while the broader TOPIX has gained 2.56 points (0.09%) to 2,780. South Korea’s KOSPI is trading firmly higher, up 1.03% or 28.15 points at 2,765.72. Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 is trading flat, up 0.40 points at 7,812.30.

    Stock Market Live Today: Global cues, FII activity to guide stock markets in holiday-shortened week: Analysts

    Stock markets would be driven by global trends and foreign investors’ trading activity in the holiday-shortened week, analysts said adding that key equity indices may face volatile trends amid the monthly derivatives expiry on Thursday.

    This week markets will have just three trading sessions. Equity markets will remain closed on Monday for Holi and on Friday for Good Friday.

    “This week will be shorter due to market closure on both Monday for Holi and Friday for Good Friday. As a result, trading volumes may be lower with limited market cues. However, volatility remains a possibility as we approach the March F&O expiry and the financial year-end,” Santosh Meena, Head of Research at Swastika Investmart Ltd, said.
