Mini

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 failed to hold on to intraday gains in a choppy session on Tuesday. Losses in financial, oil & gas and metal shares pulled the headline indices lower, though gains in IT and consumer stocks lent some support. Broader markets strengthened, with the Nifty Midcap 100 index ending 0.5 percent higher. Its smallcap counterpart rose 1.6 percent. Ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala-backed Star Health launched an initial public offer (IPO) to raise Rs 7,249 crore. Go Fashion shares made a strong debut on Dalal Street, listing at a premium of 91 percent over its issue price.

  • Bullish on Cadila Healthcare: Sushil Kedia

    Sushil Kedia, Founder of Kedianomics, has added Cadila Healthcare to his buy list, after last week's call of Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. "Every other major pharma stock is deeply oversold. Let an uptrend get stabilised, and others may also become good buys. But it is safe enough for us to say Cadila is one thing I would like to add," he added.

  • Zee Entertainment remains one of better picks in media space: Anand Tandon 

    Market expert Anand Tandon believes Zee Entertainment Enterprises remains one of the better picks in the media space.

    "There seem to be some issues that keep coming with the ownership and management control and so on, so there will be a little bit of a cloud there. Generally, if you are looking at that space, I don't think there are too many options. It is not like it is extremely horrendously expensive and if there is a change of management; overall, the company may actually do well even from here," he said. 

    "Broadly, one should be looking at opportunities to buy in that space. Albeit there is one issue that because of the kind of expenses that they will continue to make in the OTT unit, the numbers may come down, but the valuations will probably catch up and ride upwards as well," he added.

  • Auto difficult market, issues on both demand supply sides: Anand Tandon 

    Market expert Anand Tandon finds automobiles to be a difficult market to look at now given issues on both the demand and supply sides. "Either they don't have semiconductors on the cars or there is no demand for two-wheelers. Clearly, because of the kind of price movement we have seen, for example, in fertilisers and on the farm sector, and unseasonal rains, the farm sector this time may not be in the same position as it was earlier to be able to continue to buy tractors," he said. 

    "The only good spot seems to be construction-related MHCVs and the logistics-related market, which is essentially the MHCV/LCV kind of market, and that is the part one can perhaps focus on," he added.

  • Not be ready to press ‘buy’ button on Tata Steel for now: Mehraboon J Irani

    Market expert Mehraboon J Irani said there is a temptation certainly to re-enter Tata Steel but not at this particular moment. "Steel prices have cooled off certainly in China. And if you look at the input parity, I think the prices in India are considerably higher. I personally believe that a reduction in steel prices is around the corner or possibly has already started to happen. So the point is, on the other hand, the stock has corrected 25-30 percent from its high. So, there could be a temptation here that. I would like the dust to settle, and would like to see ultimately what happens, how much the market reacts further in case there is a reduction in steel prices, because the gap is a little bit too much," he said.

    "I would not like to go and buy into the ferrous metals and steel, especially Tata Steel, at this moment. Knowing the little bit of uncertainty in the overall scenario right now, I will not be ready to press the ‘buy’ button now," he added.

  • Correction to create opportunities in IT, specialty chemical spaces: Mehraboon J Irani

    Market expert Mehraboon J Irani is positive on IT and specialty chemical spaces. He believes the current correction is possibly going to provide opportunities to invest in both the spaces at attractive valuations. 

    "We all wanted the market to correct. When it corrected, we all started possibly pressing the ‘sell’ button. Now has the market turned the corner? Is the bull market over? I wouldn't like to hazard a guess on that particular point but would like to believe that while we could see lower levels for the time being, a bottom could be in place. If you look at individual stocks, a few stocks that were highly fancied have come off 20-40 percent from their recent highs, especially from sectors that were preferred by retail investors," he said.

  • Nifty50 can slide further, next target 16,500: Manish Hathiramani 

    The Nifty50 failed to close above the 17,000 mark, which is definitely a matter of concern for the bulls, said Manish Hathiramani, Proprietary Index Trader and Technical Analyst at Deen Dayal Investments. "This is a psychological break of the bullish sentiment. The Nifty can slide lower to its next target of 16,500 as . Any up move will now be seen as an opportunity to sell the index for lower targets," he said. 

  • Market At Close | Sensex, Nifty off 2% from day’s highs; Nifty Bank down 3%

  • Omicron unlikely to make a large dent on market: Axis AMC's Chandresh Nigam 

    Chandresh Nigam, MD and CEO of Axis AMC, believes the next couple of months may be uncertain with respect to Omicron, but the new COVID variant is unlikely to make a large dent on the market.

    "The markets were in some kind of a reactive mode or corrective mode; I think reasonably flat over the last couple of months. Omicron, obviously, is something that is uncertain, unknown. But as we have seen in the past, these are sometimes buying opportunities. Unless Omicron gives us something which is completely unknown, and we can't handle it; I would think this is part of normal correction in the market, not to be taken to really change or take any drastic action on your asset allocation. In fact, just use that as an opportunity for people who are under invested to maybe invest or start investing in the markets as well," he said. 

    "The markets were already in correction mode. This has further exacerbated the situation. But this, as like all corrections, will get over and the markets will start to focus on fundamentals which I am saying both from an economic perspective as well as the breadth of the market, which looks quite solid," he said. 

  • Energy crunch shows signs of easing globally: Julius Baer's Norbert Rucker 

    Norbert Rucker, Head Economics and Next Generation Research at Julius Baer, believes the energy crunch shows signs of easing globally, but "Europe continues to fear shortages, particularly of natural gas".

    "While Europe continues to fear supply shortages, particularly of natural gas, North America eyes more abundance, even though with some support from the weather wild card. The outlook for mild winter weather pressured US natural gas prices and caused a sell-off of more than 10 percent yesterday. Thanks to rising production, more coal instead of gas use at power plants, and the lack of severe cold spells so far, storage and supplies remain comparably abundant across the Atlantic. In Europe, meanwhile, the past days arrival of wintry conditions and rather soft wind conditions mirrors itself in elevated gas use for heating and power production and thus declining storage levels. This nourishes supply concerns and lends support to prices," he said.

    He, however, said Russian gas flows into Europe remain depressed, and it is the lack of gas in the related storage sites in Germany and Austria that still largely accounts for the observed deficit overall. "This shortage is flow and not capacity related and thus potential delays in the Nordstream II pipeline approval process should be irrelevant for Europe’s gas supplies. We expect a further easing of global energy supplies and an eventual partial normalisation of Russian gas flows into Europe," he added.

  • Buy Zee, Tech Mahindra, Tata Motors, Tata Power, Indian Hotels: Mitessh Thakkar

    Here are five buy recommendations from Mitessh Thakkar of earningwaves.com: 

    --Zee Entertainment has given a good pullback, and is now close to the support pivot of Rs 326. One can keep a stop loss around Rs 324 for a target of Rs 350.

    --Tech Mahindra is seeing a good follow-through after a pullback. That's a 'buy' now with a stop loss below Rs 1,140 for a target of around Rs 1,175-1,180.

    --Tata Motors is a good buy. The decline could be a good entry opportunity. One can buy whenever the stock comes back into this range of Rs 460-435. Keep a stop loss below Rs 420-415, and the first target should be Rs 540, but it can eventually go to Rs 610, and even possibly Rs 650 plus.

    --Tata Power has done phenomenally well and should remain a good buying opportunity. Medium-term support is closer to Rs 200-190 levels. Any declines to Rs 210-200 levels should be a good buying opportunity with a stop loss below Rs 180. The stock should not only eventually hit Rs 260 again

    --Indian Hotels gave a big breakout from Rs 156 to about Rs 162, and broke into all-time highs. In this pullback, the stock returned to those levels. Any declines close to Rs 170-165 would be buying opportunities with the stock poised to retest Rs 230. One should keep a stop loss below Rs 155.

  • Yet to see significant improvement in semiconductor shortage issue: Minda Industries

    “There is a significant impact in terms of volumes in Europe. Volumes are down almost close to 30 percent plus and minus five percent here and there, which is a very sharp fall from a year-on-year perspective,” said Bohra. (Read more on Minda Industries)

  • Jefferies initiates coverage on Devyani International with 'buy' rating, target Rs 240

  • Positive on select private banks, consumer discretionary names: ICICI Prudential Life's Manish Kumar

    Manish Kumar, CIO of ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, is positive on some of the private sector banks, and select companies in the consumer discretionary space. Kumar likes companies in the highest segments of consumption, like jewellery and organised retail, and the capex players. "We believe that given the kind of things that corporates are reporting, it is only a matter of time when you will start seeing private sector capex coming back and therefore we are positive on that space as well," he said. 

  • Reduced exposure to IT after Q2 results: ICICI Prudential Life's Manish Kumar

    Manish Kumar, CIO of ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, said that following the September quarter results, the exposure to the IT sector has been brought down. "Earlier, we were sort of overweight... neutral to overweight across our portfolios and now we are more neutral to marginally underweight, simply because we believe that some of the statements that COVID gave to the sector has largely played out," he said. 

    "If you look at the earnings momentum, there seems to be some kind of tapering and the momentum of order inflows has softened, which also means that when we are talking of FY23 growth as far as earnings, possibly it is going to be somewhat more normalised," he said. 

    Speaking on the pharma space, he said: "We have been underweight on the sector. But in the underperformance, we have been gradually nudging some of the stocks. Again, our stance here would also be between neutral to underweight because as such, this is still a sector which saw tailwinds because of COVID but the growth momentum is still lacking in most of the companies."

  • Correction largely done, third COVID wave may not hit India as badly: ICICI Prudential Life's Manish Kumar

    Manish Kumar, CIO of ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, believes a correction of about 9-10 percent after a rally of almost 150 percent in the past 18 months is healthy. "It only makes the market healthier for long-term investors. With regards to the fear of COVID and its impact, in the Indian context, we have noticed that COVID has been striking with a delay of about 3-4 months after striking Europe or the Western world. If we assume that, we may see a third wave in just about three months from now. By that time, looking at the pace of vaccinations currently, our belief is, almost the entire adult population would be fully vaccinated. This would mean that we may be able to avoid a strong third wave," he said. 

    "Our belief is that the third wave may not hit us as badly as Europe and therefore, this correction is largely done in terms of the magnitude. But you may keep seeing some kind of individual stock level corrections," he said.
