Nifty Eyes 8150; SBI Tanks 5%, Auto & Oil Stocks Lead

Bussing stocks11:55 am Exclusive: Speaking to CNBC-TV18 from the sidelines of Pune Inc Conclave Power Minister Piyush Goyal said demonetization has huge advantages. It will take India to digital banking and make it a cashless society.

He said the government will use the money from demonetization to pump prime economy.

When asked what one should expect from the Union Budget on February 1, Goyal said ‘Good things’. He said: “The Finance Minister over the last three Budgets – July’14, Feb’15 and Feb’16 has consistently worked on a series of measures. He focused on a sustainable framework for India’s development.”

FM Arun Jaitley never tinkered with rates, minor changes but looked at structural improvements, so that India could move towards and economy, which like China sees 2-3 decades of high-level growth, said Goyal.

11:45 am Sameer Nair Group CEO of Balaji Telefilms says that new shows have a much lower margin and hopes to have 10 shows on air by FY17 end.

TV business gross margin is likely to be up 25 percent by this fiscal year, he believes.

The plan now is to get next releases of movies in the next fiscal year, he says, adding that film business will likely book profit in FY18.

Balaji Telefilms will look to air new shows on Sony, Sun TV and Doordarshan.

11:30 am Exclusive: The demonetization move by the government on November 8 seems to have put the buzzing FMCG sector on a pause mode.

Industry sources told CNBC-TV18 that top FMCG companies like HUL , Nestle India , ITC, as well as Dabur are adopting a ‘wait and watch’ mode with regards to new product launches and may defer new launches of high-end, premium products by one-two quarters.

They would look at geography specific launches to minimise the impact of demonetization, say sources, adding that the worst hit categories are luxury chocolates, premium cookies and ice-creams.

Nestle, ITC may defer launches in premium chocolate, confectionery & cookies space, and HUL, Dabur may defer product launches in premium personal care space, say industry sources.

The market has recovered from early weakness but the Nifty is almost nearing 8150. The 50-share index is up 6.80 points at 8121.10 and the Sensex is up 21.34 points at 26337.68. About 1457 shares have advanced, 652 shares declined, and 112 shares are unchanged.

Bharti Airtel, Cipla, Hero MotoCorp, BHEL and Bajaj Auto are top gainers while ICICI Bank, Wipro, TCS and Axis Bank are losers in the Sensex. SBI is down 5 percent intraday on Monday after RBI increased cash reserve ratio (CRR).

India is proving to be immune from the heavy selling in global emerging market debt, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s clampdown on undeclared cash has sparked expectations of a rate cut and pushed issuers to take advantage of low yields.

Indian Railways Finance Corporation, NTPC, Vedanta Resources, Exim India and Axis Bank all rushed to print rupee notes last week to access cheaper funding.

“The debt market is very compelling,” said Killol Pandya, head of fixed income at Peerless Funds Management. “Issuers that were otherwise going to banks are approaching the bond market as banks are yet to cut lending rates.”

Infosys, TCS make a killing on weak rupee but should you worry?

infosys-tcsBeaten down technology stocks, which were reeling under Brexit woes and Donald Trump win in the US, saw a new lease of life this week as rupee plunged to a new low on November 24. BSE IT index climbed around 7 percent in this week starting November 18 while both the benchmark indices were marginally up 0.6 percent. Demonetization leading to shortarge of cash in the country is slowing down business and trade volume on Dalal Street is also severely affected.

Meanwhile, rupee fell to a record low of 68.85 per dollar as foreign institutional investors withdrew from emerging markets. And that’s what brought much needed relief to the technology companies as depreciating rupee drives more revenue for export oriented firms.

Gaining momentum from rupee’s weakness, Infosys   , TCS   and Wipro   rose 6.2 percent, 8.4 percent and 6.4 percent respectively in the week.
it-sector-outperform

These companies, however, have been dealing with a lot of trouble and cut guidance for FY17 on growth slowdown especially due to softness in Banking, Financial services and Insurance (BFSI) sector. After Q2 results, Infosys reduced FY17 revenue guidance for the second consecutive quarter and had already warned of risks to guidance from RBS contract cancelation and tepid business in banking, manufacturing & retail segments. The country’s second largest IT company slashed its revenue guidance for FY17 to 8-9 percent from 10.5-12 percent earlier in constant currency terms after considering performance of H2FY17 and near-term uncertain business outlook.

That had lead to a lot of selling in IT stocks this year. In November itself, BSE IT index is down 6 percent while Sensex and Nifty lost around 7 percent in this period. In year-to-date, both BSE IT index and Nifty IT fell 15 percent whereas Sensex was down 1 percent and Nifty was up 0.2 percent.

Though analysts are cautious about the sector but feel that valuations are rather tempting after price corrections. Credit Suisse says that larger IT firms’ price to equity have contracted by 10-30 percent in the last one year due to concerns on structural factors and cyclical reasons and stocks are also trading well below their 3-year average PE and close to their 3-year lows.

It says that Trump’s anti-immigration rhetoric and recent comments could pose uncertainty and worst-case outcome could create 200 basis points margin pressure.

“We have cut target multiples for our universe, which reduces target prices by 4-10 percent. We believe that HCL Tech   and Tech Mahindra   are better positioned with low downside risk— business momentum is good, valuations attractive and any immigration impact would be relatively low. And they will benefit from any pick-up in discretionary spending as well,” the brokerage firm says in a note.

Also, the sector is at a risk of further pressure post Q3 results as generally this quarter is weak due to less number of working days due to US holidays.

The CMD of Biocon Ltd, which was rated among the world’s top ten employers in the biotechnology industry by an international magazine recently, said she is confident that the demonetized currency would be replaced by the new notes reasonably soon.

“The objectives of flushing out counterfeit currency, illicit funding of businesses and illicit activities including extremism and terrorism and ‘havala’ transactions will certainly be achieved,” Mazurka-Shaw told PTI.

Demonetization would also serve to be a deterrent to corruption in the short-term. “However, what remains to be seen is for how long can we stave off the re-emergence of black money,” she said.

“Bank deposits would benefit due to demonetization, though not all inflows will remain in the banking system on a permanent basis,” S&P said in a report titled ‘Banking Industry Country Risk Assessment: India’.

“The economic risks facing financial institutions in India have increased amid structural and cyclical challenges that Indian companies face,” it added.
