    Stock Market Live Today: A post-listing view of SRM Contractors from Shivani Nyati of Swastika Investmart 

    SRM Contractors Limited, the Jammu & Kashmir and Ladakh-focused construction company, witnessed a flat debut on the stock market. The listing price of Rs. 215 per share translates to a modest 2.5% gain over its issue price of Rs. 210. This performance falls significantly short of pre-listing expectations and the high grey market premium (GMP) of Rs. 90 (42% premium) observed earlier. The strong overall subscription of 86.57 times also adds to the surprise of the flat listing.

    Despite the strong subscription, some investors might have found the valuation at listing less attractive also Broader market conditions might have impacted investor sentiment and tempered listing gains. 

    SRM Contractors’ flat listing, while not what pre-listing indicators suggested, doesn’t necessarily negate its future potential. The company’s strong regional presence, in-house capabilities, and healthy order book remain positive points. However, a cautious approach is advisable.

    Stock Market Live Today: BofA upgrades Divis Laboratories to Buy amid earnings growth potential

    BofA: Divis Laboratories More than a laggard play; Upgrade to Buy

    Divi’s two-year earnings downgrade cycle and margin decline to below pre-Covid levels is reflected in its underperformance (YTD -8% vs. +12% for Healthcare Index). We believe weak API pricing is factored into street earnings post the downgrade with visible levers for earning growth aided by investment in capacity & capabilities. We see lower risk to the 35% earnings growth over FY25-26 with valuation for Divis at 35.5x FY26 P/E appearing more compelling vs. large peers given uncertainty on US Gx pricing, regulatory risks. In our view, likely bottoming of margin in near-term & relative valuation provide an attractive entry point. Hence, upgrade Divi’s to Buy from Underperform with PO Rs4025 (Rs3380 previously).

    Commodities Market Live Today: Silver rise to $26.20

    Silver prices rose above $26 per ounce, the highest level in almost a year, backed by heightened safe haven demand as geopolitical tensions in the Middle East escalated following Israel’s strike on Iran’s embassy in Syria. Additional support for the metal came from prospects for increased use in the solar industry, which presently accounts for roughly one-third of silver production, after the IKEA Foundation backed the EV drive with a $100 million grant. On the other side, upward momentum was hampered by lower odds on the commencement of Fed monetary easing after US manufacturing statistics, industrial orders, and job openings exceeded expectations.

Job postings in the United States increased in February, yet labour market conditions are progressively improving, bolstering hopes that the Federal Reserve will begin decreasing interest rates in June. Two Federal Reserve members said it would be “reasonable” to drop interest rates three times this year, despite better recent economic statistics casting doubt on the conclusion.
