    Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 extended losses to a fourth straight session on Monday tracking weakness across global markets. Losses in financial, IT and oil & gas shares pulled the headline indices lower, though gains in select auto, metal and FMCG stocks lent some support. Heavyweights HDFC Bank and Infosys -- which reported disappointing financial results for the January-March period last week -- were the biggest drags on the indices. Broader markets also weakened, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices declining more than one percent. Investors awaited more earnings reports from India Inc for cues. Mindtree will report its results for the January-March period later in the day. Globally, news flow on the Russia-Ukraine war and rising COVID cases in China remained on investors' radar.

    • Component manufacturing, defence products a big opportunity: Vikas Khemani 

      Vikas Khemani, Founder of Carnelian Capital Advisors, is bullish on the manufacturing space, and that within that, the defence products segment. He has been bullish on manufacturing for the last one-and-a-half years.

      "We believe that there will be a lot of import substitution and a lot of exports will happen from India across various sectors. Defence happens to be just one of them, and is also one of the very important components. In defence, what kind of policies the government has come out with in the last one year, in terms of banning items from imports and stuff like that, is creating a serious opportunity," he says. 

    • Favour IT sector for 3-4 years: Deepak Shenoy

      Deepak Shenoy, Founder of Capitalmind, favours the IT space for a 3-4-year period. "We expected margins to come down for a lot of IT companies, since work-from-home is kind of going away and we're seeing a lot of attrition, and new hires are coming in at a significant premium to current... We should see IT get hurt on margins. The largest margin company is TCS - and we have that in our portfolio - and they've managed to retain margin for the most part, but I think a lot of the smaller companies will have problems," he says. 

      Shenoy believes that in general, the longer-term growth metric for IT would have gone past the 15-16 percent level. "That will continue for the next 3-4 years. The next quarter is going to be bad but I don't think this is bad for the industry as a whole. We possibly see a lot more companies getting into the $1 billion-plus deal barrier happening in the next year," he adds. 

    • Nifty looks weak because of Infy, HDFC twins weight, things not that bad in broader market: Hemang Jani

      Hemang Jani of Motilal Oswal Financial Services is of the view that specific themes in the market such as defense, power utilities, sugar, ethanol and paperare seeing a bit of strength. "Our sense is that because of the kind of run-up that we've had, and we're getting into the quarterly earnings season at a time when there are multiple headwinds, there is some pressure at the index level and there is a case of some sort of rotation depending upon how the numbers are," he says.

      A part of the money from IT is moving into some other sectors, maybe BFSI and a few other midcap-related sectors where FII holdings are less, he says. "A combination of these factors is impacting the market. And we think that till we get a bit of a clarity on the earnings front, there is not going to be any significant run-up at the index level," Jani adds.

    • Tata Steel offers decent opportunity among metal stocks: Prakash Diwan

      Market expert Prakash Diwan is of the view that metal companies such as Tata Steel, which are fully integrated, have successfully deleveraged their balance sheets and are agile enough to adapt to changing environments offer a decent opportunity. "The last time then the Tata Steel stock was close to Rs 1,300-1,400 levels, there were targets of Rs 1,900-2,000 that it started floating around given the buoyancy at that point. My sense is that the subdivision of share split will probably get much more participation in that sense," he says.

      "The dividend is always welcome for people who believe in that kind of an income as well. Tata Steel and steel as a sector including SAIL, which are absolutely low on the valuation spectrum relatively, will offer great opportunity for long-term investors," he adds.
