Market Close Highlights : European stocks hovered near record highs Thursday after US inflation data reinforced bets that the Federal Reserve will start cutting interest rates this year.

The Stoxx 600 Index was little changed in early trade, while the MSCI All Country World Index advanced for a fifth day in its longest winning streak since July. Futures contracts on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 eked out small gains after both gauges set new highs in the previous session.

Bloomberg’s dollar index fell to a one-month low while Treasuries mostly added to their advance as investors brought forward expectations for policy easing. The swaps market shows that traders are now almost fully pricing in two 25 basis-point Fed cuts this year.

The improved appetite for risk assets came after US core CPI — which excludes food and energy costs — came in in-line with consensus expectations, easing concerns that inflation was becoming entrenched. Separate retail sales data indicated some softening of resilient consumer demand.

“The combination of slowing growth and softer inflation is a godsend for equity markets," said Ipek Ozkardeskaya, a senior analyst at Swissquote Bank. “There is nothing more appetizing for investors than the smell of lower future rates."

Still, Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis President Neel Kashkari repeated that the central bank likely needs to keep rates at the current level for “a while longer," questioning how much they’re restraining the US economy.

Later today, investors will study data on initial applications for US unemployment benefits for signals on the health of the economy after a significant increase in the reading last week.

A raft of European Central Bank policy makers are also due to speak, with traders almost fully pricing in the likelihood of three rate cuts for the year, kicking off next month.

Among individual European stocks, Ubisoft Entertainment slumped after guidance suggested that the video-maker’s margins will come under pressure. Siemens AG dropped as the German company saw demand for factory-automation products in China weaken further.

In Asia, a regional gauge pushed toward a new peak. Shares of Chinese developers jumped on optimism that Beijing will provide policy support for the purchase of unsold homes from distressed builders.

In commodities, copper continued setting new records after a massive dislocation between prices in New York and other commodity exchanges rocked the global market. Oil rose for a second day, buoyed by shrinking US stockpiles.

Sensex Today Live : Jinesh Joshi, Stuti Beria, and Dhvanit Shah--Research Analyst and Research Associates-Institutional Equities, at Prabhudas Lilladher, recommend to 'ACCUMULATE' PVR Inox

Sensex Today Live : PVR Inox Rating: ACCUMULATE | CMP: 1,285 | TP: 1,431

We cut our pre IND-AS EBITDA estimates by 8%/6% for FY25E/FY26E amid weak content pipeline and plans to close 70 screens. PVR-Inox reported a modest performance by managing a breakeven at operating level with footfalls of 32.6mn (PLe 33.4mn). Post-COVID content reception and flow has been quite erratic and PVR-Inox is taking corrective measures to reduce cost (fixed cost per screen of Rs19.8mn in FY24 is flat when compared to pre-COVID base). Further, there are plans to migrate to an asset light growth model by partnering with developers to jointly invest in screen capex.

We believe PVR-Inox is in reset mode where the focus is to rationalize cost, reduce capex outgo, and target debt reduction which should yield results once content flow stabilizes. Given near term challenges, we cut our footfalls assumptions by 4%/7% and expect pre-IND AS EBITDA margin of 15.6%/17.7% for FY25E/FY26E. Retain ‘ACCUMULATE’ on the stock with a TP of 1,431 (earlier 1,663) as we cut our target EV/EBITDA multiple to 12x (earlier 13x).

Sensex Today Live : Tushar Chaudhari, Research Analyst - Institutional Equities at Prabhudas Lilladher, recommends to 'BUY' Shree Cement citing a focus on cost efficiencies and premiumisation

Sensex Today Live : Rating: BUY | CMP: 25,820 | TP: 29,225

Shree Cement reported better than expected operating performance aided by higher volumes, lower expenses and relatively better realization

Volumes grew 8% YoY while NSR declined just 3% YoY on improving contribution from premium brand

Mgmt. reiterated its preference to grow organically without any leverage and dilution

SRCM expects ~9mtpa capacity addition in FY25E, maintaining its competitive position and market share in the core markets

Focus on cost efficiencies to remain with planned railway sidings at each unit over four years and addition of green power capacities

We expect SRCM to deliver revenue/ EBITDA/ PAT CAGR of 11%/13%/14% over FY24-26E. Our FY25/26E EPS gets upgraded by ~8% on reduced guidance on depreciation. The stock is trading at EV of 17.6x/15.2x FY25E/FY26E EBITDA. Maintain ‘Buy’ with revised TP of 29,225 (earlier 28,966) valuing at 17x EV of Mar’26E EBITDA.

Sensex Today Live : Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, says the decline in US CPI inflation has set the stage for a rate by the Fed

Sensex Today Live : "The underperformance of the Indian market during the last one month is striking. While the S&P 500 is up by 5.08% and Euro Stoxx 50 is up by 3.74%, Nifty is almost flat with only 0.24% gain. More important is the huge outperformance of Chinese stocks with a stunning gain of 17.38% in Hang Seng. It is this outperformance of China that is causing the sustained selling by FIIs in India.

India’s underperformance is likely to change soon with clarity on election results. DIIs, HNIs and retail can turn aggressive buyers lifting the market sharply. FIIs can’t afford to miss this potential rally. The only risk is political instability after elections which appears a very low probability event now.

Meanwhile the global market construct continues to be supportive with the US indices setting new records. The decline in US CPI inflation in April to 3.4% sets the stage for a rate cut by the Fed."

Sensex Today Live : Vaishali Parekh, Vice President - Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher, gives technical outlook for Bankex and Bank Nifty

BankNifty, after the short pullback witnessed, has found resistance near the 47,950 zone to end the session near the significant 50EMA level of the 47,700 zone. The important support level for the index is maintained near the 47,200 zone, which is also where the important 100-period MA lies. Bankex witnessed a range-bound session maintaining above the 50 DMA level of the 54,100 zone, which would be crucial. A decisive breach above the 54,700 zone of the important 20 DMA level is necessary to improve the bias and expect further rise in the coming days. BankNifty would have a daily range of 47,200–48,200 levels, with Bankex support at 54,100 and resistance at 54,900 levels.
