    Stock Market Live Today: Stock Recommendations: JM Financial maintains buy rating for Aditya Birla Capital stock

    Commenting on the amalgamation plan, analaysts of JM Financial said, “We believe that the scheme would offer key positives which include: a) simplified operations, b) elimination of Holdco discount since ABFL was mandated to be listed by Sep’25 as per NBFC-UL guidelines, and c) absence of separate listing costs of ABFL. This also increases CRAR by ~150bps as such postpones the potential need to raise growth capital versus earlier scenario. Our SOTP-based calculations now suggest a TP of INR 240 valuing: i) ABFL at 2.0x FY25E P/B, ii) housing sub at 2.0x FY25E P/B, iii) life insurance at 1.8x FY25E P/EV, iv) ABSL AMC at 25x FY25E P/E, and v) AB Money at CMP.

    Stock Market Live Today: Post-listing view of R K Swamy from Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth at Swastika Investmart

    RK Swamy Limited (RKSL), a prominent integrated marketing services company, witnessed a lackluster debut on the stock exchanges, listing at Rs. 251 per share. This translates to a concerning 13% decline from its issue price of Rs. 288, significantly lower than pre-listing expectations of even a flat listing. The pre-listing grey market premium (GMP) was around Rs. 0 thus this is a weaker-than-anticipated performance.

    The muted pre-listing GMP and negative listing indicate a cautious investor approach, possibly due to volatile market conditions or concerns about competition and working capital requirements. This negative listing presents a challenge. Investors are advised to evaluate their risk tolerance before making any decisions.

    Stock market updates today: Correction expected in the broader market

    Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services.

    The dominant near-term trend in the market now is the correction in the broader market, particularly the small caps. The small cap index is 7.8% down from the peak and this correction is likely to continue since the valuations are excessive even now. The regulator SEBI has sent a clear message about the frothy valuations in the small cap segment and, therefore, regulatory actions are likely, going forward. There can be redemptions from small cap funds, adding to the downside. Quality large caps will bounce back after a correction, but small caps are unlikely to bounce back in the near-term. PSE stocks that have run up too much too fast also are likely to face selling pressure.”

    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex and Nifty rise on positive Asian cues, eyes on inflation data

    Indian benchmark indices, the Sensex and Nifty, began Tuesday’s session on a higher note, tracking gains in broader Asian markets, as investors awaited key inflation data from both India and the US.

    The 30-share BSE Sensex rose by 53.94 points to 73,556.58 in early trading, while the NSE Nifty climbed 15.75 points to 22,348.40.

    Asian markets opened higher, with the MSCI Asia ex-Japan index up by 0.23%. Most Wall Street stocks had declined overnight ahead of the release of US consumer price index (CPI) data, scheduled after the closing bell.

    The CPI is expected to show a 0.4% rise in February, which could significantly impact the Federal Reserve’s future rate decisions.

    Although a rate cut is unlikely at the Fed’s upcoming policy meeting on March 20, there is a 55.2% probability of a 25 basis points cut in June, according to CME’s FedWatch Tool.

    Investors are also awaiting India’s CPI data, which is anticipated to have declined to a four-month low in February, primarily due to easing food prices, according to a Reuters poll.

    On Monday, both the Nifty 50 and BSE Sensex fell by 0.7%, influenced by losses in banking and Tata Group stocks, as well as profit-taking near record high levels.

    Small-cap stocks performed weaker than blue-chip stocks, dropping by 2%, with concerns raised by the markets regulator about excessive speculation in these segments.

    Foreign portfolio investors and domestic institutional investors were net buyers of Indian equities on Monday, acquiring shares worth Rs 4,213 crore (~$509 million) and Rs 3,238 crore, respectively.

  • March 12, 2024 09:18

    Stock market updates today: Morning Outlook for 12 March 2024

    Deven Mehata Research Analyst Choice Broking

    The benchmark Sensex and Nifty indices are likely to open on a positive note on March 12 as trends in the GIFT Nifty indicate a firm start for the broader index with a gain of 26.50 points.

    Nifty can find support at 22,250 followed by 22,200 and 22,100. On the higher side, 22,400 can be an immediate resistance, followed by 22,450 and 22,500.

    The charts of Bank Nifty indicate that it may get support at 47,100, followed by 47,000 and 46,900. If the index advances, 47,500 would be the initial key resistance, followed by 47,700 and 47,800.

    Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) net bought shares worth Rs 4,212.76 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) purchased Rs 3,238.39 crore worth of stocks on March 11, provisional data from the NSE showed.

    INDIAVIX was positive by 2.81 percent and is currently trading at 13.9950.

    Yesterday witnessed a sharp market decline, with Nifty closing near its daily low after a sudden sell-off from higher levels. Traders are strongly advised to exercise caution and trade with a strict adherence to stop-loss levels. In the event of Nifty experiencing a further decline towards the robust support zone of 22000, investors may consider this as an opportune moment for fresh medium to long-term investments.

The Complex houses compressor stations, 2 LPG production plants and a C2-C3 recovery plant (liquid feed goes to Pata via HVJ); new units like green H₂ (to commission in May-24) as well as small-scale LNG (ssLNG; already started) have also been set up. GAIL is expanding its C2-C3/LHC capacity by 192/100tpd. Mgmt stated that rich gas supplies are getting tighter, hence GAIL may look at ethane sourcing from USA for Pata via VLECs, imported through various terminals. The ADNOC LNG contracted is, however, rich. Vijaipur’s ongoing net-zero initiatives include conversion of gas turbines to electric, 5% H₂ blending at C2-C3, and control of fugitive emissions.

    for primary rebar the project segment appear to have bottomed out, with

    an increase of INR200/t WoW to INR51,800/t.

     We believe, multiple public holidays in Mar-Apr’24 along with the financial

    year-end liquidity crunch and slowdown in the project segment will keep

    the overall demand for long steel under pressure with only need-based

    buying.

     Flat steel prices continue to remain under pressure with prices further

    declining INR400/t WoW at INR52,700/t. Considering the subdued demand,

    higher imports and narrow spreads between flat-long steel prices, Tier-I

    mills are expected to roll over the list prices for Mar’24 deliveries.

     Higher imports continue to post near-term challenges for domestic mills

    with HRC and plates import in Feb’24 at 0.64mt (up 40% MoM) and imports

    in Mar’24 already crossing 0.2mt.

     Indian mills’ offerings to the export market have remained subdued due to

    stiff competition from producers in China and Vietnam.

    Stock market updates today: DLF

    Motilal Oswal

    CMP: INR911 TP: INR850 (-7%) Neutral

    Poised for a healthy performance in the near term…

    …but valuations already factor in growth and a strong price CAGR

    Launch pipeline provides good visibility

     During 9MFY24, DLF achieved bookings of INR133b, surpassing the company’s

    full-year guidance of INR130b. The company has largely exhausted the new

    project pipeline for the current year, and the performance in the fourth

    quarter will be driven by INR44b worth of inventory at the existing projects.

    Hence, we expect bookings to remain flat in FY24 at INR155b.

    Stock market updates today: Adani Ports & SEZ: Well positioned to surpass revised guidance of FY24

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    – APSEZ clocked a cargo volume of 382 MMT in 11 months of FY24, recording 24% YoY growth on YTD basis. With a monthly cargo run rate of ~35 MMT (APSEZ handled 35.4 MMT of cargo in Feb’24), we expect APSEZ to surpass even its revised cargo volume guidance of 400 MMT during FY24. The logistics business continues to do well, with YTD rail volume up 21% YoY in FY24.

    – APSEZ is well on track to cross its revised cargo volume guidance of 400 MMT during FY24. It continues to gain market share while generating strong cash flows and maintaining its leverage position, with a net debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 2.5x as of Dec’23. We increase our volume estimates by 2-3% for FY24-26.

    – Over FY24-26, we expect APSEZ to register 10% volume growth and a CAGR of 15%/16%/18% in revenue/EBITDA/PAT. With consistent outperformance in cargo volumes, we increase the target multiple to 17x EV/EBITDA (earlier 16x) and reiterate our BUY rating with a revised TP of INR1,600
