Nifty IT down on selling by funds post 2 days of gains##Nifty IT down on selling by funds post 2 days of gains

The Nifty IT index nearly reversed it two-day gaining streak and fell due to heavy all-round selling by some foreign exchange traded funds and investors, who would now prefer to wait for July-September earnings early next month before betting on the sector, said dealers. The Nifty IT index is the lone sectoral index which is still up so far in 2019, outperforming the benchmark indices, and investors would rather take some profits and then increase their holding ahead of the results from such companies, said an analyst. At 1508 IST, the Nifty IT index was down 0.8 percent, with shares of HCL Technologies down 1.2 percent, Tata Consultancy Services down 1.2 percent, Tech Mahindra down 2 percent, and Wipro down 1.1 percent. So far in 2019, the Nifty IT index has risen 8.1 percent, while the Nifty 50 has fallen 0.3 percent.

Amitabh Chaudhry over-promised and didn't deliver: Macquarie on negativity towards Axis Bank##Amitabh Chaudhry over-promised and didn't deliver: Macquarie on negativity towards Axis Bank

The negative sentiment towards Axis Bank is caused by the "mismanagement of expectations" as CEO Amitabh Chaudhry over-promised and did not deliver, said Suresh Ganapathy, banking analyst, Macquarie Capital Securities.


"The bank, compared to other private sector banks, has a large SME portfolio which is a bit more vulnerable in the current economic slowdown. Even in some of the latest names which are supposed to be stressed, Axis Bank invariably has exposure to most of them. Some of these names were not even classified as a watch list," said Ganapathy in an interview with CNBC-TV18. READ MORE

UFO Moviez falls 5% as ICRA cuts outlook to negative##UFO Moviez falls 5% as ICRA cuts outlook to negative

Shares of UFO Moviez India fell over 5 percent to Rs 141.05 after ICRA Ratings cut the long-term outlook on the company to "negative" from "stable" on account of reduced financial flexibility. The reduced financial flexibility comes in response to the recent fall in share price. The stock has fallen over 44% in 2019 so far. The ratings agency also believes the company's liquidity position moderated due to high dividend payout of Rs 940 million in April-June, reducing the consolidated cash surplus to Rs 752 million as on June 30 from Rs 1.19 billion earlier, the company said in an exchange filing.

Why Morgan Stanley upgraded this stock just 2 months after downgrading##Why Morgan Stanley upgraded this stock just 2 months after downgrading


Just two and a half months after global brokerage firm Morgan Stanley downgraded Titan to 'equal-weight' from 'overweight', it has upgraded it back to 'overweight' and raised its target price to Rs 1,300 per share from Rs 1,110 earlier. The brokerage believes that strong growth in a difficult macro environment should be rewarded by re-rating.

It also said that Titan's ongoing marketing and promotion spends are unprecedented. READ MORE

Concrete Times: Indian cement producers face bleak outlook##Concrete Times: Indian cement producers face bleak outlook

The cement sector has been in a downtrend in the last few months due to subdued demand and sluggish growth prospects. And the outlook is even bleaker owing to weak infrastructure spending and investments, according to analysts.

IDBI Capital expects the cement demand growth to surprise negatively in the coming months. “Better cement pricing will result in offsetting the impact of weak demand in H1FY20, however, sustained slowdown in cement demand will lead to lower pricing resulting in slower earnings progression than expected,” the brokerage said in a report.

Ashmore Investment's Ashwini Agarwal: This is a good time to invest with a medium-term view##Ashmore Investment's Ashwini Agarwal: This is a good time to invest with a medium-term view

Indian economy is going through a slowdown and the downturn is reflected in the underperformance of the markets. However, Ashwini Agarwal, co-founder and partner, Ashmore Investment Management India, feels that it is a good time to invest but with a medium, not short-term view.

Agarwal told CNBC-TV18 in an interview that the big disappointment for the market in the last three months has been the sharp slowdown in earnings and economic environment, and although valuations look attractive in certain situations, one needs to take a medium-term view of 2-3 year while investing in stocks for the earnings rebound to be visible.
