Sensex, Nifty Hold Early Gains; Mid, Smallcap Outperform Again

market-at-higher-point1-capitalheight10:15 am FII View: Gautam Chhaochharia, Head of India Research at UBS Securities, said that the longer India story remains intact. Demonetization doesn’t impair the economic trajectory in the long term. He said he is estimating a 3-6 month disruption which may have been priced in by many stocks already.

It is difficult to assess the impact on GDP rate owing to cash ban. “It is difficult to take a linear view,” he said, adding that he believes the GDP for this fiscal year could be about 6 percent, but it will go up to 8 percent because of base effect.

Nifty earnings growth in FY17 will be 5 percent, and 14 percent for FY18, he said.

FIIs have been net sellers in the last two weeks on buzz that the US Fed will hike rates and make borrowings expensive. Till a week ago, markets were EM driven, he said, admitting that over the last week India has been under performing a bit.

Sensex, Nifty May Stay flat; Idea, Tata Steel in Focus

stock market news capitalheightThe SGX Nifty indicates a tepid start for Indian market as US markets slipped the most in four weeks as Trump-fuelled rally fades. Asia markets were mixed, taking cues from the US where a post-election rally appeared to stumble.

Traders also looked ahead to key global events set to take place this week, including a meeting on Wednesday between the world’s largest oil producers, and the release of the US nonfarm payroll report on Friday.

Japanese shares were likely pressured by a slightly stronger yen, which traded at 111.94 against the dollar on Tuesday morning in Asia, climbing from levels near 113.00 in the previous week.

US stocks declined for their worst performance in nearly a month, weighed down by a pullback in the financial and consumer discretionary sectors as some investors booked profits on the heels of a record-setting week.

Back home, the 30-share BSE Sensex was up 33.83 points at 26350.17 and the 50-share NSE Nifty gained 12.60 points at 8126.90 while the BSE Midcap index jumped 1 percent and Smallcap rose 0.66 percent on positive breadth. About 1658 shares advanced against 936 declining shares on the exchange.

In a move to spur deposits, the Reserve Bank of India has eased current cash withdrawal limits of legal tender notes at banks and ATMs on or after November 29. New Rs 2000 and 500 notes will be issued for such withdrawals.

Idea Cellular may be in focus as it puts its entire tower assets on the block. It eyes a billion dollars from the sale of nearly 11,000 telecom towers.

Tata Steel has entered into an agreement to sell its speciality business in the United Kingdom. Liberty House will buy the assets for 100 million pounds.

Among asset classes the dollar edged down against a basket of major currencies surrendering some gains after a sharp rally that followed Donald Trump’s surprise victory in the US Presidential election. The dollar had surged more than 4 percent against a basket of currencies in the wake of the election earlier this month- but has now retreated from its 14-year high.

Prices pared gains after a source said OPEC experts ended their meeting on Monday without agreeing on concrete details of a planned reduction in oil output by individual countries. Details are supposed to be presented to an OPEC ministerial gathering tomorrow. With OPEC scrambling to rescue the deal, analyst are warning of a sharp price correction if the producer group fails.

Gold prices rose more than 1 percent, recovering from their lowest levels since February as the dollar and long-dated US treasury bond yields retreated from recent highs.

Nifty Rangebound, Midcap Outperforms; Liquor, Aviation Stocks Up

Dalal Street CapitalHeight10:20 am FII View: Asian markets look attractively valued. Mean-reversion on valuation over the next five years would deliver an annual return of 8.9 percent.

He further says earnings in the region are recovering, most evidently in the cyclical markets of North Asia, as is liquidity. Sentiment remains too negative and investors are sheltering in the more defensive ASEAN and India markets.

By contrast, he advocates a more pro-cyclical, pro-value stance, and favoured markets are Korea, Singapore and Taiwan.

Sector-wise, he is overweight on technology, materials, banks and consumer discretionary.

While he likes risk as an investment factor, he acknowledges it could backfire on trade frictions, more political upsets and a stronger USD in 2017.

With valuations 0.5 standard deviation below mean, though, Asia ex-Japan looks to be pricing in too fearful an outlook, Rosgen says.

10:00 am Market Check: Equity benchmarks turned volatile after early sell-off, with the NSE Nifty hovering around 8100 level. Banks and select technology stocks were under pressure while auto, healthcare, telecom and select healthcare stocks gained.

The 30-share BSE Sensex was down 58.28 points at 26258.06 and the 50-share NSE Nifty fell 14.35 points to 8099.95 while the broader markets outperformed.

The BSE Midcap and Smallcap indices gained half a percent each on positive breadth. About two shares advanced for every share declining on the BSE.

Liquor stocks like Globus Spirits, United Spirits, GM Breweries and Som Distilleries surged 3-14 percent while aviation stocks like InterGlobe Aviation, Jet Airways and SpiceJet gained 1-5 percent.

Banks are still under pressure, though these stocks recovered a bit from day’s lows. ICICI Bank, Bank of Baroda, SBI, PNB, Kotak Mahindra Bank, Bank of India and Axis Bank were down 1-3 percent.

Adani Enterprises Gets 100 MW Solar Generation Plant Order in Australia

adaniThe Whyalla City Council today formally reached agreement with the Adani Group for the Indian company to develop a $ 200 million solar generator north of the city.

The project will involve a 100 MW solar generation plant,with potential capacity of up to 150 MW which would make it one of the largest in Australia on one site.

Adani, the largest solar energy generator in India, is planning to have a number of solar projects in Australia with a total capacity of 1,000 MW within the next five years.

The solar projects are in addition to Adani’s $16.5 billion investment in the planned Carmichael coal mine in Queensland’s Galilee Basin as well as rail and port facilities.

Construction of the Whyalla project is due to start mid-2017 and be completed in approximately 12 months.

The workforce will peak at 350 employees, with full time operation staff to number up to five. A land purchase agreement has been signed with the council for the site which is in an industrial land estate.

The solar generated electricity will be fed into the main network which will boost reliability of supply in the region.

Adani currently has solar generation projects in India planned or operational totalling more than 1,400 MW, including one of the world’s largest solar plants at Tamil Nadu in southern India which has a capacity of almost 650 MW.

The solar projects are part of Adani’s global strategic balanced approach topower generation with coal-fired, solar and wind plants.

The company’s CEO of Australian operations, Jeyakumar Janakaraj, said solar opportunities in Australia were enormous because it had the highest solar radiation per square metre of any continent in the world.

Solar energy penetration in Australia – more than 2 million homes have solar PV and/or solar hot water systems – demonstrated acceptance of the renewable energy source.

“Coupled with the company’s $ 3.3 billion dollars of investment to date across its mine, rail and port projects in Queensland, Adani’s plans to pursue solar investment opportunities reflect the confidence the company has in the Australian market,” Janakaraj said.

Whyalla Mayor Lyn Breuer said Whyalla City Council was pleased to be working with Adani on its project, and looked forward to the economic benefits the project would bring.

“We have been working with Adani for quite some time now to reach this agreement, and we are very much looking forward to seeing the project come to fruition,” Breuer said. “Whyalla City Council strongly supports renewable projects, and we believe Adani’s solar generator project will bring major benefits to the City of Whyalla and the region as a whole.”

Member for Giles, Eddie Hughes, warmly welcomed Adani’s intent to build one of Australia’s largest solar farms in Whyalla.

“This is great news for Whyalla,” said Hughes. “For many years we have promoted Whyalla as a perfect location for solar energy production. We have sun, land, a skilled workforce and a supportive community. Those attributes have attracted the interest of Adani.”

“Construction of the plant will provide a boost to employment and it will provide one element in what is shaping up to be a much brighter future next year. I look forward to Adani becoming part of the Whyalla community and making a very positive contribution to the future of our city.”

9:45 am New IPO: Jagran Prakashan, the publisher of leading Hindi daily Dainik Jagran, today said its subsidiary Music Broadcast Ltd will raise up to Rs 400 crore through initial public offer.

The board of MBL, which operates the popular Radio City FM stations, in a meeting held today approved the IPO of the company.

“We wish to inform you that the board of directors of Music Broadcast Ltd (MBL) at their meeting dated November 24, 2016 has approved an initial public offer,” the company informed BSE.

“The IPO would comprise of fresh issue aggregating upto Rs 4,000 million (400 crore) and offer for sale by existing shareholders,” it added.

9:30 am FII view: Laurence Balanco of CLSA says tactically, he is looking for a minor pullback to relieve the momentum extremes seen in leading markets (US and Japanese equities, US dollar, US 10-year yield, copper).

While these extremes warn of a short-term reversal, the fact that momentum has confirmed the highs suggests that such a pullback should be short-lived and followed by further gains into Q1 2017, he adds.

He says the Achilles heel to this equity market advance would be a US 10-year yield breaking above 3.05 percent, which is the resistance zone provided by the upper boundary of the 35-year downtrend channel.

It is also close to the level where the rolling 12-month correlation between the S&P 500 and the US 10-year yields switches from positive to negative, Balanco feels.

The market has opened firm as the Sensex is up 70.47 points or 0.3 percent at 25930.64. The Nifty is up 29.95 points or 0.4 percent at 7995.45. About 571 shares have advanced, 147 shares declined, and 32 shares are unchanged.

The Indian rupee opened flat at 68.72 per dollar on Friday versus previous close 68.73. The government rushed to allay fears after the rupee drops to an all-time low of 68.86 to the dollar before recovering on perceived RBI intervention.

The commerce minister said, rupee fluctuation has been factored in by exporters.

Bhaskar Panda of HDFC Bank said, “High volatility and unidirectional move is the order of the day in the USD-INR market. A surging dollar index, spectre of US interest rate hike have seen net FII outflow to the tune of USD 4 billion leading to almost 4 percent depreciation of the rupee.”

Among global markets, Asia is trading higher amid a lack of direction from US markets that were shut for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Asian stocks steadied on Friday as the Thanksgiving break in the United States pegged the dollar’s relentless surge that had sucked capital out of most emerging markets.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan inched up 0.05 percent on Friday. It is poised to end the week 0.8 percent higher, but remains down almost 2 percent from its close on November 8 before Donald Trump’s surprise election to president, whose protectionist campaign promises are widely seen as negative for the region.

Sensex, Nifty May See Strong Start; Banks, IT Stocks in Focus

sensex

The SGX Nifty indicates a strong start on Dalal Street as Asia trades higher amid a lack of direction from US markets that were shut for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Asian stocks steadied on Friday as the Thanksgiving break in the United States pegged the dollar’s relentless surge that had sucked capital out of most emerging markets.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan inched up 0.05 percent on Friday. It is poised to end the week 0.8 percent higher, but remains down almost 2 percent from its close on November 8 before Donald Trump’s surprise election to president, whose protectionist campaign promises are widely seen as negative for the region.

In Europe, the markets closed slightly higher as investors focused on new economic data from Germany and increased expectations of US rate hike next month.  The European central bank issued a fresh warning about potential economic fallout from Brexit and the US Presidential election, cautioning that Donald Trump’s policies could trigger instability and even a trade war.

Meawhile, European finance ministers will continue Greece bailout talks. The Finance Ministers Of Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Netherlands plan to meet in Berlin today with officials from the international monetary fund to discuss Greece’s debt crisis, the euro zone is aiming for a new agreement on fiscal reform by December 5.

Back home, equity benchmarks snapped two-day winning streak Thursday with the Nifty closing below 8000 level on consistent weakness in rupee and expiry of November derivative contracts.

The 30-share BSE Sensex was down 191.64 points at 25860.17 and the 50-share NSE Nifty slipped 67.80 points to 7965.50 while the broader markets outperformed benchmarks on positive market breadth for the second consecutive session.

Watch out for bank stocks on announcements for deposit rate cuts. Also tech stocks should be eyed due to weaker rupee.

The dollar approached an eight-month high against the yen after government reports Wednesday showed US economic growth remains intact, supporting the case for an increase in interest rates. The greenback gained against all of peers as the odds that the Federal Reserve will tighten at its December meeting rose to 100 percent.

Gold edged lower as the dollar traded within reach of an almost 14-year high hit on positive US economic data, which increased expectations of the Federal Reserve increasing interest rates in December.

Crude oil prices were little changed as uncertainty ahead of a planned OPEC-led crude production cut and thin liquidity during the US thanksgiving holiday kept traders from making big new bets.
