Market Close Highlights : Global stocks ticked higher on renewed bets that the Federal Reserve would likely ease interest rates this year, while the yen weakened after a strong surge last week from Tokyo's suspected currency intervention.

With the UK and Japan on public holidays, markets in mainland China and Europe got off to an upbeat start, with Friday's softer-than-anticipated U.S. jobs report underpinning sentiment by renewing market rate-cut bets.

Europe's broadest stock index rose 0.4% while S&P 500 and Nasdaq futures added 0.2% each in a positive sign for the Wall Street open later on.

Oil prices were also in focus on the prospects of Saudi Arabian price hikes and rising tensions in the Middle East, with Brent futures up 80 cents to $83.76 a barrel and U.S. crude futures 91 cents higher to $79.02 per barrel.

On Monday, Israel's military called on Palestinian civilians to evacuate Rafah as part of a "limited scope" operation, but did not immediately confirm media reports this was part of preparation for a ground assault.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan peaked at its highest level since February 2023 and last gained 0.57%, while China's blue-chip index closed 1.5% higher.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index rose 4.7% last week and on Friday clocked its longest daily winning streak since 2018, closing on Monday 0.55% higher.

The rebound in Chinese markets followed the country's Politburo meeting, where policymakers said they will step up support for the economy with prudent monetary and proactive fiscal policies.

A long-awaited recovery in the Chinese economy is also gaining momentum. Data on Monday showed the country's services activity expansion slowed a touch amid rising costs, but growth in new orders accelerated and business sentiment rose.

Markets globally have also enjoyed a boost from Friday's U.S. nonfarm payrolls report.

That reinforced bets Fed rate cuts would most likely come this year, after Chair Jerome Powell also maintained the central bank's easing bias last week.

In Europe, Goldman Sachs raised its 2024 EPS growth forecast for STOXX 600 companies to 6% from 3% earlier, the bank said in a note on Friday.

According to Goldman, a 10% annual rise in Brent prices adds about 2.5 pp (percentage points) to annual EPS growth, and a 10% weaker euro/dollar exchange rate adds about the same.

The dollar held broadly steady on Monday, leaving the euro away from a one-month high to last trade at $1.0769, while sterling similarly edged lower and last bought $1.2545.

Elsewhere, traders remained on alert for further volatility in the yen, after last week's bouts of suspected intervention from Japanese authorities to stop a sharp slide in the currency.

Gold tacked on 0.7% to $2,317 an ounce.

Sensex Today Live : Praveen Sahay, Research Analyst - Institutional Equities, Prabhudas Lilladher, recommends to 'HOLD' KEI Industries; says healthy growth and margins continue

Sensex Today Live : Rating: HOLD | CMP: Rs3,893 | TP:Rs4,032

KEI Industries sustains its robust growth trajectory and guided revenue growth of 17-18% in FY25, driven by a promising demand outlook in the export business (expected +50% growth) and domestic sectors such as Infrastructure, Railways, Real Estate, etc.

The company aims to reach 11.0% EBITDA margin in FY25. KEI has reported strong rev. in EHV cables (+80.6% YoY), housing/winding wire (+22.5% YoY) & EPC business (+53.7% YoY) in Q4FY24. However, its EHV rev. reach to pick, expected to be flat in FY25.

We tweak our earnings estimates for FY25/FY26E and estimate Revenue/EBITDA/PAT CAGR of 17.1%/20.7%/20.7%.

The consistent growth in both margins and performance, coupled with robust returns (27.5%/20.3% RoCE/RoE in FY24), along with optimistic guidance, compel us to assign a premium valuation to the company compared to its peers.

Maintain ‘HOLD’ at revised TP of 4,032 ( 3,692 earlier), valuing at 43x FY26 earnings.

Sensex Today Live : Elara Securities India recommends to 'REDUCE' CEAT as cost pressures loom over moderating OEM growth; says exports outshine

Target Price : 2,632

Upside : 3%

CMP : 2,545 (as on 03 May 2024)

We believe the tyre sector may have reached its peak margin (from raw material-related benefit). Historically, the stock price peaks closer to an earnings upgrade cycle, which happens closer to margin peaks; Q4 may be the start of earnings downgrade cycle.

Since we view margins to have peaked in FY24, expect FY24-26E EBITDA/ EPS CAGRs to be paltry at 3.3% /4.5%.

Strong catalysts for a sustained upmove are limited (barring any sharp reduction in RM basket, which is unlikely in the medium term, in our view). Price increases in an environment of softening demand will be monitored.

Expect FY25E/26E EBITDA margin at 12.5%/12.6%, factoring in the impact of the EPR regulation as well. With capex intensity behind, FY24-26E cumulative FCF generation may be INR 20.4bn. We maintain Reduce and lower our TP to INR 2,632 from INR 2,850 on 14x (previously 15x) FY26E P/E.

Sensex Today Live : Nifty 50, Sensex today: What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on May 6

Sensex Today Live : The Indian stock market's benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are projected to start the week on a positive note on Monday, buoyed by encouraging signals from global markets. The Gift Nifty trends also suggest a gap-up opening for the Indian benchmark index, trading around the 22,685 level, which is nearly 110 points higher than the previous close of Nifty futures.

On the previous trading day, Friday, the benchmark indices closed about a percent lower due to profit booking across various sectors. The Sensex fell by 732.96 points, or 0.98%, to close at 73,878.15, while the Nifty 50 ended 172.35 points, or 0.76%, lower at 22,475.85.

The Nifty 50 formed a long bearish candle on the daily chart, engulfing the small range candle of the previous few sessions. According to Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities, this pattern could be interpreted as a bearish engulfing pattern, indicating potential further weakness. The Nifty's weekly chart formed a gravestone doji type candle pattern at new highs, which typically signals a reversal on the downside following a significant upward bounce. Therefore, investors should exercise caution at these high levels. Shetti believes that the short-term trend of the Nifty appears to have turned downwards. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Eight key things that changed for market over weekend - Gift Nifty, US jobs data to Nasdaq rally

Sensex Today Live : The Indian stock market, represented by the Sensex and Nifty 50 indices, is anticipated to commence trading on a positive note on Monday, influenced by a surge in global markets. This optimism is fueled by a weaker than expected US jobs report, which has led to speculation that the US Federal Reserve may not sustain high interest rates and could initiate rate reductions in the near future.

Investors will be closely monitoring several key factors that could impact the stock market. These include the progress of the ongoing Lok Sabha elections in 2024, the release of Q4 results, and various domestic and international macroeconomic data. The price of crude oil and other global indicators will also be under scrutiny.

After reaching a new high of 22,794 levels, the Nifty 50 experienced profit booking and faced downward pressure. This was due to increased market volatility and apprehension at higher levels. Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd, anticipates that the market will consolidate within a wider range and the base will gradually move upwards.

Sensex Today Live : Firm global peers, Gift Nifty signal positive open for Indian markets

Sensex Today Live : Indian markets were expected to start on a positive note, following global peers higher as colling wages in the US firmed up anticipation of a sooner rate cut by the US Federal Reserve.

Gift Nifty futures were trading at 22,686, around 200 points ahead of Nifty 50's Friday close of 22,475.

Asian stocks rose on Monday on renewed bets that the Federal Reserve would likely ease rates this year, while the yen weakened after a strong surge last week from Tokyo's suspected currency intervention.

Trading was thinned in Asia with Japan out for a holiday, though markets in mainland China got off to an upbeat start after returning from an extended break.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan edged more than 0.5% higher, while China's blue-chip index gained 1.4%.

Chinese shares offshore posted strong gains last week while mainland markets were closed from Wednesday to Friday for the Labour Day holiday.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index rose 4.7% last week and on Friday clocked its longest daily winning streak since 2018. It was last down 0.2%.

The Nasdaq-listed Golden Dragon China Index jumped 5.5% last week.

Similarly, in currency markets, the offshore yuan was last roughly 0.1% lower at 7.2013 per dollar, after strengthening more than 1% last week, in part due to a broadly weaker dollar.

The People's Bank of China on Monday also lifted its official yuan midpoint to the highest in three weeks, catching up with movements offshore. That sent the onshore yuan to its highest in over a month at 7.2009 per dollar.

The rebound in Chinese markets has come on the back of the country's Politburo meeting, where policymakers said they will step up support for the economy with prudent monetary and proactive fiscal policies.

The broader market rally across Asia meanwhile got an additional boost from Friday's U.S. nonfarm payrolls report, which came in cooler than expected.

That reinforced bets that Fed rate cuts would likely come later this year, after Chair Jerome Powell also maintained the central bank's easing bias last week.

The dollar held broadly steady on Monday, leaving the euro away from a one-month high to last trade at $1.0766, while sterling similarly last bought $1.2551.

Trading of cash U.S. Treasuries was closed with the Japan holiday, though futures were little changed.

Elsewhere, traders also remained on alert for any further volatility in the yen, after last week's bouts of suspected intervention from Japanese authorities to stop a sharp slide in the currency.

Economic leaders of South Korea, Japan and China had on Friday said heightened foreign exchange market volatility was one of the risk factors that could affect regional growth prospects in the near term.

In commodities, Brent futures rose 0.3% to $83.21 a barrel, while U.S. crude futures similarly edged 0.35% higher to $78.39 per barrel. Gold tacked on 0.2% to $2,307.15 an ounce.
