Stock Market Highlights: Sensex ends volatile session 535 pts above day's low and Nifty reclaims 15,350 as market halts 6-day losing streak


Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 finished a volatile session in the green on Monday, helped by a rebound in financial and IT shares, though investors remained cautious amid concerns about steep hikes in COVID-era interest rates and their impact on economic growth. Losses in oil & gas and metal shares limited the upside in headline indices. Broader indices hit one-year lows, as the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices fell 2.3 percent and 3.2 percent respectively.

Well-capitalised banks best positioned to benefit from rising rate environment: HDFC Securities' Unmesh Sharma

Unmesh Sharma, Head-Institutional Equities at HDFC Securities, tells CNBC-TV18 that well-capitalised banks are in a better position to benefit from the environment of rising interest rates. The recent sell-off has turned valuations in the banking basket more interesting, he says.

"If you adjust the value of the subsidiaries, a lot of these companies are now trading between 1.5 percent and 2.5 times price to book... Of course they can go down further. But if you are a long-term investor, looking at 12 months or beyond, this is one space you definitely want to be overweight on,” he adds.

Godrej Properties 4% down, Indiabulls, Sunteck Realty 5% down

The Nifty Realty index is 0.2 percent up from intraday low at 367. Major real estate stocks like DLF and Oberoi Realty are down.

Taking to CNBC-TV18, Mohit Malhotra of Godrej Properties told CNBC-TV18, "We are present in the top six cities, we are seeing very strong demand across cities. If you look at the top four cities in India, the peak was in FY11 and if you look at even the last year while we had record sales, we were still at 75 percent of that peak, which we hit in FY11. So, the markets have actually corrected very sharply over the last 10 years."

"This was also a period where the income levels have risen between 10 to 12 percent... affordability is at an all-time high. We have also seen a supply very sharply coming down in this sector since the time of introduction of RERA and the liquidity crisis which followed," he said.

He added: "There is a complete shift in how people perceive home today given the amount of time we have spent at our homes during the pandemic. So I think all these factors combined, we are on a positive upcycle and if we just maintain discipline in price hikes, I don't see any reason why this recovery would not continue."

Events of the last few days have increased the risk of recession in the US: VK Vijayakumar

VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said that the events of the last few days have increased the risk of recession in the United States. "Synchronised rate hikes by most central banks will certainly hit global growth this year. High interest rates and lower growth will impact corporate earnings." He added: "The correction in the Indian market is not as steep as in the US mainly because of the sustained buying by DIIs and retail countering the relentless selling by FIIs."

He said that if the crude oil prices continue to fall, it can help tame inflation, globally.

"Investors can use weakness in the market to buy high quality large-caps across sectors," he advised.
