Summary

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 finished a choppy session mildly higher on Monday led by a rebound in financial shares. Besides, gains in auto and metal shares also pushed the headline indices higher though losses in IT, pharma and consumer stocks limited the upside. Broader markets also weakened, with the Nifty Midcap 100 declining 0.2 percent for the day. The Nifty Smallcap 100 fell 0.7 percent. Globally, news updates about the Russia-Ukraine war and rising cases of COVID-19 in China remained on investors' radar.

Don't think Tata Elxsi upmove has anything to do with fundamentals: Hemang Jani

Hemang Jani of Motilal Oswal Financial Services is of the view that the upmove in Tata Elxsi is because of expectations of inclusion in MSCI indices. "As we all know, the floating stock for some of these names is very small. When one is expecting a significant inflow because of MSCI inclusion, the price impact tends to be very high. It's a great quality stock in the sense that in the midcap IT, it covers mobility and certain emerging themes," he says. 

Jani says the move is actually due to a technical factor because of the MSCI adjustment.

A few new age cos in pole position to change consumer habits: Harish Krishnan 

Harish Krishnan, Executive VP and Senior Equity Fund Manager at Kotak AMC, believes that a few new age companies are in a pole position to change consumer habits. "All the new age businesses are essentially a bet of optionality that can play out into the future... They are loss making and there is pressure on loss making companies today with the elevated yield curve. There is also a question mark on whether the capital, which was very abundant in the last 24 months, will be available to them. We continue to have a promising outlook towards quite a few of the new age businesses but we treat them as option values,” he says.

PVR-INOX Leisure deal positive: Gurmeet Chadha

Gurmeet Chadha, Co-Founder and CEO of Complete Circle Consultants, finds the deal between the two multiplex operators to be positive. "As the economy opens up, people want to move out and what this creates is it creates somebody with a box office market share of 40-50 percent... I think there will be lot of synergies that will work out over a period of time. There is this trend also from a single- to multi-player that will pay out. Overall, it is pretty constructive in my view," he says.

PVR-INOX deal to require CCI nod based on asset value, turnover: J Sagar Associates' Vaibhav Choukse

Vaibhav Choukse, Partner-Competition Law at J Sagar Associates, believes the proposed deal between PVR and INOX Leisure will require competition watchdog CCI's approval based on their asset value and turnover. "If you look at this deal typically, although it is a mega deal but what particularly they are trying to do is to claim an exemption, which is provided by the central government and is called a target exemption. Typically, it says that a deal will not require an approval from the Competition Commission of India if the parties have an asset value of less than Rs 350 crore in India or a turnover of less than Rs 1,000 crore," he says. 

"If you see the balance sheets, and profit and loss accounts of the companies, I believe they are qualifying for these particular thresholds as their turnovers do not exceed Rs 1,000 crore in India in the last preceding financial year. Now, if that is the case, the deal is exempted from CCI's standard point and the regulator will have no jurisdiction to review this particular deal," he explains.

Best strategy now is to be on sidelines, remain invested: Sanjay Dutt

Sanjay Dutt, Director at Quantum Securities, believes that the best strategy now is to be on the sidelines, and for existing investors to stay invested in the market. The outlook for the next few months or 1-2 years is positive, he says.

"We are going through a very good period of consolidation. We have had a lot of volatility over the last few weeks. That's kind of settling down now. We are going through a very good phase of consolidation after hitting the lows and bouncing back for those 15,700 levels (Nifty50)." 

His advice: It is a good time to revisit your portfolio, and to focus on high conviction ideas. 

"It's time to be in equities for the next 4-5 years. Therefore, don't worry, but make sure that you have the right bets in your portfolio and just continue to be invested. But you want to take fresh calls, maybe just wait it out and you may get a little lower levels as part of this consolidation. But I don't see really the market falling off the cliff as such," he adds.
