Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 rose on Thursday, led by strength in IT, metal, oil & gas and metal shares though weakness in select FMCG and healthcare shares limited the upside. Broader indices Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 finished more than one percent higher each. Globally, investors remained on the back foot amid concerns about steep hikes in key rates and their impact on economic growth.

Don't expect IT order books shrinking much in Q2: JM Financial's Vinay Jaisingh 

Vinay Jaisingh, MD-Portfolio Management Services at JM Financial Services, tells CNBC-TV18 that in his view, IT companies are unlikely to see much of a decline in their order books in the upcoming earnings reports. "Their outlook for the following 12 months may become a little more questionable. What I mean to say by that is if you look at the two-year and 10-year charts of interest rates for the US, we are at a negative 0.4-0.5 basis points. That means that the US GDP after two quarters of contraction for the next two quarters too you could be at a flat level, which means 2022 may be a flat one too," he says.

"You will start seeing the order book in the following year coming down. Hence we would be underweight the IT sector as well. I am not even getting the costs into the picture, because costs in a way maybe are breached by the dollar going to about 82 (vs the rupee) or even much higher in the days to come," Jaisingh adds.

This is a classic buy-on-dips market: Rahul Sharma

"This is a classic buy-on-dips market where market internals like Nifty has remained resilient throughout and now with the US markets bottoming out, there is a good possibility that we want to test the all-time high on the Nifty, which is around 18,600," said Rahul Sharma, Head - Technicals & Derivatives Research at JM Financial Services.

"I think the technical sense of the market is pretty robust as of now, and any dip could be used as buying opportunities. 17,000 should be a good reentry level in case there is any correction in the near-term and overall, as long as we remain above the 16,650, which is the 50 percent retracement of the entire previous bull move from 15,200 to 18,000, we should be pretty strong in the uptrend," he said.
