    Stock market Live Today: Pre-budget expectations by Jeetu Bairathi, Partner, Financial Due Diligence, BDO India

    In preparing for the upcoming budget, the government’s focus should revolve around fostering ease in compliance through streamlined processes, embracing single-window schemes, and minimizing regulatory complexities, especially in tax regulations. The predictability of policies is crucial for instilling confidence among investors.

    A strategic allocation of budgetary funds towards emerging sectors, such as spirituality tech, space tech, prop tech, and gaming, will catalyze growth in start-ups. To further enhance the funding environment, consider incentivizing investments by private equity and venture capital through tax breaks and holidays.

    Recognizing the global emphasis on sustainability, a dedicated fund within the budget is essential to propel green tech, clean energy, and social impact ventures. Moreover, prioritizing artificial intelligence (AI) startups, particularly those contributing to social impact sectors like healthcare, education, and agriculture, demands budgetary allocation to harness the transformative potential of AI.

    Expanding the Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme across sectors, coupled with an aggressive scope, will not only spur innovation but also integrate more startups into the manufacturing landscape.

    Addressing taxation concerns is imperative. This includes a call for long-term capital gain parity between listed and unlisted equity shares, an extension of tax holidays, and a prolonged period for carrying forward losses. The tax on carry fees/carried interest remains a key concern in the private equity and venture capital community. The recent notification on angel tax regarding funds raised from foreign investors adds complexity to cross-border investments, necessitating a thorough review.

    In conclusion, a forward-looking budget that aligns with global trends, encourages innovation, and addresses taxation intricacies will be instrumental in propelling economic growth and fostering a vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem.

    Stock market Live Today: Monarch Networth Capital | SJVN shares rally past our target price of ₹125 on securing 100 MW solar power project

    SJVN’s share price was up 11.8 per cent at ₹130 on Monday, moving past our base case target price of ₹125. The strong rally was helped by the company’s consistent winning of power projects over the last 1 year and more recently helped by the winning of a 100 MW solar power project from Gujarat Urja Vikas Nigam Ltd (GUVNL) on January 25, 2024. SJVN will develop this 100 MW solar project on a build-own-operate basis in Gujarat and sell the generated power to GUVNL under a 25-year power purchase agreement at a tariff of ₹2.54 per kWh. The estimated project cost and PLF are ₹550 crore and 27-29 per cent, respectively. 

    This latest win increases its cumulative capacity to an estimated 60.6 GW (operational 2.2 GW and pipeline portfolio 58.4 GW). 

    We remain positive on SJVN considering its ongoing capacity expansion supported by favourable sector dynamics. Our base case estimates for FY26E, which factors in a conservative installed capacity of 8.3 GW by FY26, indicate a forward P/E of 18.3x, P/B of 3.1x, EV/EBITDA of 9.7x and EV-to-capacity of ₹7.8 crore per MW. We will shortly revisit our target price.

    Stock Market Live Today: Budget expectations for the Logistics industry

    -- Ravi Jakhar, Chief Strategy Officer of Allcargo Group

    ‘’As India is emerging as a viable alternative for the global multinational companies for diversifying their manufacturing base, the accelerated development of logistics infrastructure and favourable policy formulations will play an enabling role in helping the country garner a larger share in the global manufacturing value chain. Therefore, we expect the upcoming budget to propose a continued capex push for transportation, port and digital infrastructure development to boost logistics efficiency and competitiveness in line with the vision and goals of National Logistics Policy. We expect the budget to support persistent efforts of the logistics industry to develop last-mile connectivity to facilitate the transformative growth of the SMEs through effective local and global value chain integrations, as they are the key growth drivers of the economy. In addition, we expect the budget to propose incentives to drive large-scale green or renewable energy adoption so that the industry can play a pivotal role in achieving the country’s net zero target.’‘

    Stock Market Live Today: Preview of Maruti Suzuki Q3FY24 Result

    Maruti Suzuki Ltd is expected to report low double-digit growth YoY in sales owing to a notable 8% YoY volume growth, primarily driven by strong traction in UVs which experienced a remarkable 60% YoY surge. However, entry-level models faced a decline of 48% YoY during the same period. The company’s EBITDA margin is expected to slightly contract which can be attributed to the increase in RM costs along with operational deleverage. Despite domestic volumes shrinking 11% QoQ, realization is anticipated to increase sequentially, propelled by an improved product mix leaning towards SUVs, along with exports which grew 3% QoQ, contributing ~14.3% to sales in Q3FY24.

    Stock Market Live Today: Pre-Budget Expectation from Gaurav Sahay of Fox Mandal & Associates 

    Focus on PLI Scheme: The expectations underscore the ‘Make in India’ Initiative and emphasizes on increased R&D investments and expanding indigenous manufacturing of batteries. Production Linked Incentive (PLI) Scheme will incentivise and support startups in fostering innovation. Government has to introduce relaxations and incentives for affordability and innovation in sustainable mobility in India. Extending the PLI Scheme to battery recycling will also ensure that instead of exporting dead batteries, domestic recycling will help India become the hub of sustainability.

    Demand from EV Sector: Subsidies in sub-assembly lines of EV vehicles will reduce the bill of materials cost and rationalising GST rates will create a cost-competitive environment. Lastly, the proposed battery swapping policy should ensure that start-ups and small-scale entrepreneurs are not affected due to the entry of big players in the industry calling for the requirement of standardization.

    Expectation of MSME Sector: Since the introduction of ONDC and OCEN, MSMEs should be provided continued support and tax benefits. They should be given the easy opportunity to access credit by also incentivising FinTech companies. Further, the focus should also primarily be on digital payments in tier-2 cities and rural areas along with educating them about digital payments in order to curb cyber fraud. There has been a consistent call on standardizing the KYC framework to address the same.

    Stock market Live today: Interim Budget 2024 Expectations from Ashwini Shami, smallcase Manager, EVP & Portfolio Manager OmniScience Capital

    “We believe spending on defence will continue. India is looking to become an exporting hub for defence. We already have attachés from more than 80 countries. It has become a significant part of the economy and the market over the last five years inspiring tremendous excitement. 

    Overall, expecting the Amrit Kaal theme to continue from the budget - it will cater to the masses. Continued focus on capital expenditure is expected, in addition to the other focus areas that the government had maintained last year. This will be done while maintaining the fiscal deficit. No big announcement expected for the start-ups ecosystem, but the government will definitely be doing right by start-ups in the longer horizon. The government has done well in building the start-up ecosystem with the introduction of building blocks for start-ups; Aadhar and UPI. 

    Gift City is a beautiful example of the government’s start-ups focus, riding on technology transformation. Railway will be the most important plug in the logistic space. Dedicated freight corridors operational by end of FY ‘25. Focus on infra will continue in line with previous policies. We are also bullish on financial services.

    There will be a need for capital formation and servicing companies for the same. Then of course, we are all positive about IT. The project pipeline in IT is quite healthy, 

    As for the markets, we foresee no Immediate reaction with the budget announcement. The announcement comes soon after the Fed announcement on the 31st, hence the market reaction for the next few weeks will be from a combination of the budget and the Fed announcement.”

    Nifty after opening on a positive note, carried on with the strong upward move as the day progressed on the back of strong performance from RIL which gained by a significant 7% and helped the index to move past the 21700 zone decisively further strengthening the bias.

As mentioned earlier, the index would need a decisive breach above the important hurdle at 46300 zone of the significant 50EMA level for the overall bias to improve.

    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex and Nifty begin on a high note with gains in early trade

    Indian benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, started the day on a positive note on Tuesday. In the early trade, the BSE Sensex gained 173.46 points, reaching 72,115.03, while simultaneously, the NSE Nifty rose by 51.20 points, trading at 21,788.80. 

    The Nifty 50 and the BSE Sensex logged their best day since Dec. 4, 2023, on Monday, driven by gains in heavyweights Reliance Industries and ONGC as oil prices climbed. 

    Wall Street equities rose overnight with the S&P 500 hitting a fresh record high, ahead of key corporate earnings and Fed policy decision on Wednesday. Asian markets were muted. 

    According to analysts, the interim budget on Thursday and Fed policy on Wednesday will be the major near-term triggers for domestic equities. 

    Nifty formed a long bull candle on Monday. 21851-21970 could be the next resistance band for the Nifty while 21482 could act as a support. “Build-up ahead of the vote on account seems to have started. This upmove can be used for selectively reducing weight in individual stocks that have run up too fast,” said Deepak Jasani, Head-Retail Research, HDFC Securities. 

    Prashanth Tapse of Mehta Equities notes Nifty’s recent surge, propelled by a substantial gain in Reliance Industries, reaching a record high. The market outlook suggests a sustained rally influenced by positive global factors and upcoming events. He provides preferred trade setups, emphasizing a bullish outlook on select stocks, with a top recommendation to buy Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and specific targets. Key factors include Wall Street’s performance, the US economy, easing inflation, the artificial intelligence revolution, and optimism surrounding the FM’s economic blueprint. 

    Foreign institutional investors snapped a seven-session selling streak on Monday and bought shares worth about Rs 110 crore, exchange data showed. 

    Domestic institutional investors remained net buyers, adding shares worth Rs 3,221 crore.

    Stock Market Live Today: Pre-market comment by Choice Broking for Tuesday January 30

    Morning Outlook for 30th JAN 2024

    The benchmark Sensex and Nifty are likely to open flat on January 30 as trends in the GIFT Nifty indicate a muted start for the broader index with a gain of 105 points.

    During the previous trading session on January 29, Indian equity indices rebounded strongly, kicking off the Budget week with substantial gains. Both benchmark indices recorded nearly a 2 percent increase, driven by widespread buying across various sectors and strong performances by heavyweight stocks.

    Analyzing the daily charts reveals that the Nifty has surpassed its previous swing high of 21,750, signaling a break in the downtrend by violating the lower top lower bottom formation. Looking ahead, the index could extend its pullback towards 21,950, with 21,850 to 22,000 posing as immediate resistance levels.

    In the case of Bank Nifty, there is an ongoing retracement of the recent decline from 48,300 to 44,500. The pullback in the short term could persist until the range of 46,000 to 46,200. However, it’s essential to note that 45,110 serves as a crucial support level from a short-term perspective.

    In terms of investor activity, Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) reversed their trend in the cash segment, turning net buyers and purchasing shares worth Rs 110.01 crore. Simultaneously, Domestic Institutional Investors (DIIs) were active buyers, acquiring stocks amounting to Rs 3,221.34 crore on January 29, according to provisional data from the NSE.

    Sealmatic India Limited (further referred as ‘Sealmatic’), listed on the BSE reported that it has achieved a significant milestone, with its recent approval by the Directorate General for Quality Assurance (DGQA).

    The Directorate General of Quality Assurance (DGQA) comes under the Department of Defence Production. This organisation is more than hundred years old and provides Quality Assurance (QA) which cover for the entire range of Arms, Ammunitions, Equipment and Stores supplied to Armed Forces. It also ensures Documentation, Codification and Standardisation action for minimizing the variety of components/ equipment.

    Defence applications often operates in harsh and unpredictable environments, where reliability is not just a desirable trait but an absolute necessity. DGQA approval implies that the products have been subjected to extensive testing, including simulations of extreme conditions. For defence businesses, this approval is a crucial assurance that the supplied products can perform impeccably even in the most challenging circumstances. It serves as a gateway, opening doors to a broader spectrum of opportunities within the defence sector.

    In the dynamic and critical landscape of the Defence sector, every component and technology employed must meet rigorous standards of quality, reliability and performance, hence the DGQA approval is a strategic imperative for Sealmatic, which will open doors to collaborations, contracts and partnerships with the defence establishments. says; Umar AK Balwa – Managing Director (Sealmatic).

    Target Price : INR 188 

    Upside : 39% 

    CMP : INR 136 (as on 25 January 2024) 

    Sustained performance; volume upbeat

    Favourable regulations provide further impetus to volume 

    Electricity volume of Indian Energy Exchange (IEX IN) rose 16.8% in Q3 to 28.3billion units (BU), driven by healthy power demand. Robust coal production and a decline in eAuction coal prices increased sell liquidity. Average market clearing price on day ahead market (DAM) fell 14% YoY to INR 5/unit. Conducive policy initiative gave further impetus to DAM volume. Post implementation of general network access (GNA) and India’s electricity grid code cumulative volume in the day ahead contingency (DAC) have fallen to 0.4BU in Q3FY24 and shifted to DAM. At ~15BU, Q3FY24 volume for DAM was higher by 17.5% than DAM volume in Q1FY24 and up 30% compared to volume in Q2FY24. This trend is expected to continue.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Cyient Review by Anand Rathi Research

    Cyient had a steady Q3, with 0.4% q/q growth (1.1% in CC). TCV of $297m (LTM $887m), up 13% y/y, was healthy, leading to a book-to-bill of 1.7x (LTM average 1.2x, Q3 FY23 1.4x). Growth was largely led by sustainability while all the other verticals were subdued. Communications was stable after a weak Q2 with management hoping for a Q4 recovery. The Q3 EBIT margin declined 53bps q/q to 16%. The company settled a lawsuit filed on its US subsidiary, resulting in $6m charge in Q3. Guidance for FY24 cut to 13 %-13.5% CC. No meaningful change to DET earnings estimates; we lower target to Rs.2,470 (from Rs2500), valuing DET at 24x FY26e EPS

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Dalmia Bharat Review by Anand Rathi

    While the volume growth came in mainly from cement sales in Central India through tolling arrangement, Dalmia Bharat’s Q3 EBITDA growth was due to low fuel consumption cost. Management believes elections may hamper demand temporarily, but the long-term demand would remain intact. The next leg of expansion would be announced in Q4. We retain a Buy, with a lower TP of Rs2,752 (earlier Rs2,880), 12x FY26e EV/EBITDA

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Marico 3Q24 – Demand remains muted, margins expansion led by lower commodity basket

    PL First Cut – Amnish Aggarwal – Head of Research - Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd*

    (CMP: Rs516.55| Mcap:Rs 66.7bn | Rating:Hold)

    Marico witnessed a revenue de-growth on account of subdued volumes (2% in domestic business, 6% CCG in IBD) and decline in realisation due to price cuts. However, margins expanded due to lower input cost prices and part of gains were used to ramp up A&P spends by 125bps. Marico expects positive revenue growth in 4Q along with GM expansion ~450-500bps YoY & highest ever operating margin expansion of ~250bps in FY24. We expect a gradual uptick in consumption trends led by improving macro-economic indicators, continued govt spending & conducive consumer pricing across categories due to low input costs. We have a Hold rating on the stock

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Restaurant Brands Asia 3Q24 – miss on revenues, Margins surprise on lower expenses

    PL First Cut – Amnish Aggarwal – Head of Research - Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd*

    (CMP: Rs115|Accumulate)

    India business revenue were huge miss however loss narrowed at Rs64mn vs PLe:171mn for Q3FY24 led by beat of ~290 bps at margin level . We believe the accelerated store expansion is likely to increase operating costs at initial level and drag profitability in coming couple of quarters with benefits of accelerated store expansion plan and rising throughput will boost profitability in long term. We have a ACCUMULATE rating on the stock.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Recommendations: Telecommunications monthly data review by Emkay Global Financial

    Nov-23 TRAI subscriber data — Jio gains continue

    The telecom industry’s VLR base rose 0.5mn in Nov-23 from the 1.4mn dip in Oct-23. This was led by reported subscriber base increasing 3.2mn in Nov-2023. While VIL’s VLR subscribers were flat MoM (+0.1mn), Bharti saw VLR subscriber loss of 0.4mn due to lower VLR. Jio saw subscriber addition of 1.2mn in Nov-23. In terms of overall subscribers, Jio continued to report the highest addition for the 20th straight month (3.4mn in Nov-23), with Bharti lagging at 1.7mn adds. VIL reported subscriber loss of 1.1mn MoM, as loss rate moderated from 2mn in Oct-23. Jio seems to have gained from the launch of JioBharat phone. Bharti dominated the wireless broadband subscriber addition, with an increase of 4mn; Jio followed, logging a 3.4mn increase MoM. VIL’s wireless broadband subscriber-count was up 1mn MoM. Jio’s wireline addition rate moderated, with the addition of 0.18mn subscribers (vs. 0.22mn in Oct-23). Even as Jio and Bharti continue with 5G rollouts, timing of the tariff hike remains the key trigger. VIL needs a sizable fund-raise to increase capex for restricting the subscriber loss. We continue to favor Bharti and Jio among telcos.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: VEDANT FASHIONS: Demand softness persists

    (MANYAVAR IN, Mkt Cap USD3.2b, CMP INR1106, TP INR1200, 9% Upside, Neutral)

    Motilal Oswal Financial 

    - Vedant Fashions’ PAT/EBITDA growth remained soft at 5%/8% YoY (10%/8% miss) as subdued revenue growth persisted despite the festive period. Revenue growth of 7% YoY was mainly supported by footprint addition; same store sales declined 2.1% YoY in 3QFY24. 

    - Given the weak outlook and soft management commentary, we have cut revenue/PAT by 5%/3% for 25, factoring in revenue/PAT CAGR of 10%/11% over FY23-25, mainly driven by footprint expansion. The stock is trading at valuations of ~51x P/E on FY25E after the recent correction. However, concerns around demand revival would remain a key monitorable for any re-rating. We reiterate our Neutral stance on the stock with a TP of INR1,200, valuing it at 45x P/E on FY26.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: APL APOLLO TUBES: Subdued volumes due to channel destocking

    (APAT IN, Mkt Cap USD5.1b, CMP INR1531, TP INR1770, 16% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    Earnings in line with our estimate 

    - APL Apollo Tubes (APAT) reported muted sales volume at 604KMT (flat YoY, down 11% QoQ) in 3QFY24, led by channel de-stocking in anticipation of steel price corrections (down 12% from the peak level). However, EBITDA grew ~2% YoY to ~INR2.8b, led by 3% YoY growth in EBITDA/MT on account of an improved value-added product (VAP) mix at ~59% in 3QFY24 v/s 56% in 3QFY23. 

    - We largely maintain our FY24/FY26 earnings estimates but reduce our FY25 estimates by 12% in anticipation of a slow ramp-up of new capacities. We value the stock at 32x Dec’25E EPS to arrive at a TP of INR1,770. Reiterate BUY

    (GAIL IN, Mkt Cap USD13.6b, CMP INR172, TP INR200, 16% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal FInancial

    - GAIL reported EBITDA of INR38.2b in 3QFY24, 10% above our estimate of INR34.7b. It was driven by stronger-than-expected performances in the gas transmission, LPG, and petchem segments. PAT stood at INR28.4b, beating our estimate of INR24.2b (up 12x YoY)

    (LODHA IN, Mkt Cap USD12b, CMP INR1034, TP INR1295, 25% Upside, Buy) 

    Delivers a healthy P&L performance

    - Macrotech Developers (LODHA) achieved sales of INR34b (7% below our estimate), up 12% YoY but down 4% QoQ. Pre-sales for 9MFY24 stood at INR103b, up 14% YoY. The residential business generated bookings of INR32b in 3Q (up 5% YoY) and INR99b in 9MFY24 (up 16% YoY). 

    - Sales volumes for 3Q rose 4% YoY to 2.6msf. Blended realization was flat YoY but declined 8% QoQ due to lower contributions from the South and Central Mumbai projects

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Marico review by Emkay Global Financial

    Execution key for double-digit growth aspiration in FY25

    Marico’s disappointing business performance, along with weak demand and currency challenges in international markets, resulted in our REDUCE call. Management aspires for volume-driven, double-digit topline growth in FY25, where with moderate margin expansion, it expects low-teen earnings growth, which we believe looks tough as we see benefit pass through to drive volume growth ahead. Sustained thrust on driving margin does not look positive from the topline’s growth perspective. As we cut our valuation multiple to 40x now from 42x, our Dec-24 TP reduces to Rs540 (vs. Rs570). Q3 results stood broadly in-line with the preview update; sales fell 2% and better margin delivery aided 12% EBITDA growth (EBITDA margin at 21.2%, up 270bps YoY), which with lower tax rate (at 22%) leads to 17% earnings growth.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Indraprastha Gas results review by Emkay Global Financial

    Amid a muted Q3, mgmt. reiterates volume targets

    IGL reported Q3FY24 SA EBITDA/PAT of Rs5.6bn/Rs3.9bn, an 8% miss each to our estimates mainly due to the margin miss (realization estimate being lower). Volumes were in-line at 8.5mmscmd, 4% YoY and 2% QoQ growth. Volumes were impacted by DTC conversions to EVs. EBITDA/scm at Rs7.2 was 7% below estimates amid in-line unit opex. Management has stated 2-3%/7-8% volume growth for Delhi/other GAs currently, with FY24/25 exit guidance at 9/10mmscmd and EBITDA/scm at Rs7.5-8. IGL is focusing on volume growth and taking efforts to spur growth by targeting dumpers, trucks, and state transport buses, besides foraying into CBG and LNG. We slightly tweak our FY24-26E earnings estimates by 1% each for minor re-alignments. We roll-over to Dec-25E and raise our TP marginally by 1% to Rs450. We retain ADD rating.

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: Ashok Leyland - Q3 review by Emkay Global Financial

    Downgrade to SELL on adverse risk-reward, potential MHCV downcycle

    We believe MHCV industry has peaked in FY24E with muted future outlook (trucking system capacity up ~40-50% over FY19-24E, like increases in past 2 upcycles) as bulk of replacement-led upturn seems behind us. AL’s relative outperformance over the past two years is now getting eroded, particularly in higher-tonnage categories (8-quarter low domestic truck market share in Q3FY24), as risk-reward remains adverse (trades at 1SD above LTA on PBR). We cut FY25E/FY26E EPS by ~13/20% (lower volumes, limited op. leverage, possible RM hardening), downgrading AL to SELL from REDUCE with revised TP of Rs140/sh (from Rs180) at 3.3x FY26E P/B (15% discount to LTA; 9x FY26E EV/EBITDA earlier), and 20% discount on 1x FY23 P/B for Hinduja Leyland Finance (HLF). Key risks: Revival in MHCV momentum, AL share loss reversal

    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: GAIL India Q3 review by Emkay Global Financial  

    Strong marketing and petchem show

    GAIL reported a 23% beat in Q3FY24 EBITDA at Rs38.2bn, led by higher-than-expected gas marketing EBITDA at Rs20.7bn (vs. Rs15.9bn est.) and petchem turning positive QoQ at Rs2bn vs. near breakeven estimates. PAT came in at Rs28.4bn, a 40% beat with other income also higher. Gas transmission EBITDA was 6% above estimates on lower opex, volumes being inline. LPG-LHC earnings rose with 35% QoQ recovery in Aramco LPG OSPs. Management has upped marketing EBITDA guidance for FY24/25/26E to >Rs55/40/45bn, led by focus on margins and cost optimization. Petchem should remain in black. We raise our FY24E EPS by 12% and FY25-26E EPS by 6% on higher marketing income. We increase our TP by 16% to Rs145 (6x Dec-25 EV/EBITDA). We maintain REDUCE due to recent strong stock runup and outlook being priced in.
