Stock Market Update | JM Financial Services' Vinay Jaising's view on market
“Last year the world underperformed in absolute terms by between 15 and 20 percent and India was just about flat. However if were to take into account the currency, we were down 10 percent. India is a relative outperformer versus the global indexes. In the first 15 days of 2023, India is still flat but the rest of the world is up between 5-7 percent and China is up 11-12 percent. So there is some catch-up of China opening up, there is some catch-up of FII flows going out of India and going into Korea, Taiwan and China. For 2023, we think the earnings resistivity of India is pretty good, we are pretty resilient especially with banks where we are seeing 13-14 percent CAGR of profit growth. So it is fair to assume 14 percent odd growth in earnings for the Indian market as far as profitability is concerned. Having said that we are looking at India today as more of an absolute market in the next 12 months as compared to relatively cheaper markets in emerging markets and which would get more flows coming in especially in the second half the year when the question of recession go behind us,” says Vinay Jaising, MD, Portfolio Mgmt Svcs JM Financial Services.

Share Market Update | Hem Securities' Astha Jain's view on JSW Steel
"I am really very much positive on the metal stock as a whole because global demand is really strong at the present moment of time, which I think is the key driver for their strong future performance. Talking about JSW Steel, we are expecting average sort of results because what happened in this quarter, they will be getting the benefit of lower coking coal consumption prices, but in the longer term, these prices will again be high. So I think that will be a concern in their EBITDA. But the coming quarter will be good for this company and JSW Steel has also been positive factor working for them is their Dolvi plant. So I think that capacity expansion will also be helping this company going ahead. So the future prospects are looking promising, along with the industry tailwind. So I think JSW Steel will perform better in the coming future price target can be set at around Rs 880 and it's a hold candidate for me," says Astha Jain, Hem Securities.
