I would really want to see whether the capacity expansion story has will come through and therefore with that, you will get the engineering companies also doing very well... For the moment, I think market has probably run up in the expectation that it will happen.

  • Manappuram Finance gold loan business should do reasonably well: Anand Tandon

    Market expert Anand Tandon believes Manappuram Finance's gold loan business to perform reasonably well, given there is no major drop in terms of gold prices, and, therefore, no issue of in terms of non-performing assets (NPAs). "By and large when the prices remain reasonably firm, you will get fairly strong growth in terms of volume. So, on a net-net basis, that part of the business should be okay...It is always microfinance which is a little trickier. That has been a space which has been hit quite badly during the second wave of COVID... So if you want to be in that space, I would still argue that you're probably better with the banks which moved in that space, because at least the liability sides will be assured and will come in at a lower price than if you were just borrowing the wholesale market," he said. 

    "Net-net, there are a better players for both gold loan by itself as well as the microfinance business. Of course, what is going for it is that it is not particularly expensive," he said.

  • Only aggressive investors with long horizon should stay invested in Paytm: Swastika Investmart's Aayush Agrawal

    Aayush Agrawal, Senior Research Analyst-Merchant Banking at Swastika Investmart, recommends only aggressive investors with a long-term horizon to stay invested in the Paytm IPO. Shares in One97 Communications -- the parent company of digital payments platform Paytm -- will list on stock exchanges on November 18. 

    Paytm's payment services account for the majority of its income, and its attempts to broaden the service offerings and market reach may be challenging, which might have a negative impact on its income, said Agrawal. "As India is buoyant on digitalisation, we expect the company to benefit from the same in the long run. Also, new acquisitions and strengthening of the Paytm ecosystem will be beneficial for the company... The grey market premium of the company was around two percent between Rs 40 and Rs 50 when the issue opened, the lowest compared to most of the recently-listed stocks. As the major portion of the issue is an OFS, we expect the shares to list in a flat ambit with negative close at 5-10 percent," he added.

  • Dixon Tech in focus on reports of an improvement in chip shortage issue

  • Market Watch | Ajit Mishra, Religare Broking

    Among the auto counters, we like Maruti Suzuki. It’s currently around Rs 7,860.

It is still hovering around record highs and inching gradually higher. So we expect this stock to test Rs 1,700 levels with a stop loss of around Rs 1,550.
