Market Closing: Sensex ends lower, Nifty holds 20900; broader markets outperform

Share Market Updates: India's benchmark indices ended lower on Thursday, snapping seven sessions of gains amid weak cues from global peers. The market focus has now shifted monetary policy announcements. RBI will announce its policy statement on Friday, and the US Fed on 13 December

Sensex Today | Share Market Live Updates: India's benchmark indexes ended lower on Thursday, dragged by financials in a consolidation of sorts after rising for seven consecutive sessions and hitting fresh record highs.

Shares fell across Asia following declines on Wall Street, pressured by weak oil prices and concerns about China’s fiscal health. Treasuries slid after rallying on fresh signs of US labor market softness.

10-year Treasury yields drifted higher after Wednesday’s decline that had pushed them to 4.1%, the lowest since August. The policy-sensitive two-year yield also edged up slightly. Australian bond yields were a touch lower.

Softening economic data and recent comments from Federal Reserve officials, including Chair Jerome Powell, have heightened expectations that the U.S. rates have peaked and a total of more than 125 basis points in cuts could commerce as early as in March.

Fed policymakers meet next week for the last time in 2023. While no change is expected in their target for the federal funds rate, they are scheduled to release quarterly forecasts that could alter market-implied expectations.

Sensex Today Live: Sensex ends lower, Nifty holds 20900; broader markets outperform

India's benchmark indexes ended lower on Thursday, dragged by financials in a consolidation of sorts after rising for seven consecutive sessions and hitting fresh record highs.

Weakness in global markets also weighed on domestic indices.

At close, Nifty was down 37 points at 20,901.15, the Sensex fell 132 points to 69,521.69.

Shares in most emerging markets dropped on Thursday led by Chinese stocks, after trade data failed to instil confidence about recovery in the world's second-largest economy, while a Moody's downgrade on Hong Kong added to the gloom.

MSCI's index tracking developing markets equities lost 0.5%, while a basket of currencies dipped 0.1% against the dollar.

European shares took a breather on Thursday after strong gains recently.

Back home, Power Grid Corp, Adani Ports, UltraTech Cement, Cipla and Grasim Industries were the top gainers on Nifty, while Bharti Airtel, HUL, ONGC, Apollo Hospitals and Tata Steel fell the most.

Broader markets extended gains though, with the BSE midcap index up 0.7% and smallcap index rising 0.3%.

Sensex Today Live: Nomura gas forecast India FY24 GDP growth at 5.7%

In its Asia Macro Outlook 2024, Nomura said that it expects GDP growth to slow to 5.7% y-o-y in 2024 and 5.6% in FY25, below consensus (6.2%) and the RBI’s outlook of 6.5%, with the risk of a more material slowdown in H2 2024.

Sensex Today Live: ICICI Securities maintains BUY on Nazara Tech, target price at ₹1080/share

Nazara Technologies (Nazara) has a cash balance of over 8bn (standalone) post the preferential allotment of around 5.1bn. We believe this puts Nazara in a strong position to capitalise on the funding freeze in RMG space. Most platforms are not fully passing on the 28% GST rate to end user due to the fear of losing share to competition, which is intensifying their cash crunch. Our channel checks suggest most funding opportunities in the space are (>60-70%) down rounds. 

Given the steep correction in valuation and the belief that regulators could revise taxation in H1CY24, consolidation is getting delayed. However, we note there has been some correction in salaries and some conversations have begun regarding the potential buy-outs. This could benefit Nazara as it tries to buy/build a play in RMG space.

Sensex Today Live: Shivaji Thapliyal, Head of Research and Lead Analyst, Yes Securities, on Paytm

We had started with a SELL rating for One 97 Communications (Paytm) at the time of its IPO. We have a still less-than-bullish ADD rating on the stock and have never put a BUY rating on it.

In today’s call, Paytm has stated that (1) For personal loans, the growth would 15-20%, which is materially lower than the earlier guidance in the 2Q call (2) For merchant loans, the growth would be 30-45%, which is also materially lower than the earlier guidance in the 2Q call (3) For postpaid loans, disbursement run rate is expected to halve, which is a significantly material downward revision.

We note that Paytm has flagged that the impact on profitability would be lower given that postpaid is a business of lower profitability. However, today’s commentary, in a sense, calls into question the broad thesis that Paytm was fast transforming from a Payments-focused company to a Loan distribution-focused company. The key question to ask is what proportion of its overall customer base would Paytm be ultimately be able to convert into loan customers in the long-run.

Sensex Today Live: ICICI Securities maintains BUY on PVR INOX, target price at ₹2,240/share

PVR Inox suffered in the first half of Q3FY24 due to the Cricket World Cup as big budget theatrical releases (Hindi) were moved to the second half. In addition, Hollywood content pipeline was weak (impacted by screenwriters strike).

‘Leo’ collected INR3.4bn and ‘Tiger3’ collected INR2.8bn (Nett. India). However, ‘Animal’ released on 1st Dec’23 appears to be progressing towards becoming one of the top 10 blockbusters of all time. In 6 days, it has collected approximately 3.2bn(Nett. India), which is significantly higher than expectations. Over the same period, ‘Sam Bahadur’ collected 4bn (Nett. India) with strong word of mouth promotion. Our channel checks indicate occupancy in PVR Inox in Dec’23 has been in the range of 55-60%. Given ‘Dunki’, ‘Salaar’ and ‘Aquaman’ are in the pipeline in Q3FY24, we re-iterate BUY.

Sensex Today Live: Asian shares fall tracking Wall Street cues 

Asian shares slipped Thursday, in line with the decline on Wall Street overnight. 

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dipped 0.5%, having been down 1.6% so far this month after a 7.3% rally in November. Japan's Nikkei fell 1.3%, led by declines in energy and tech stocks.

There was also a soft reading on the U.S. labour market overnight. Analysts note the ADP private payrolls report is historically not a very reliable predictor of the official non-farm payroll report due on Friday, making the weekly jobless claims later in the day more important.

Investors are awaiting Chinese trade figures later in the day to get a gauge of the strength of the world's second largest economy.

Overnight, Wall Street was dragged lower by energy stocks as oil prices slid. The Dow Jones slipped 0.2%, the S&P 500 lost 0.4%, and the Nasdaq Composite fell 0.6%.

Oil prices steadied after falling nearly 4% overnight to their lowest settlements since June. Worries about global fuel demand drove prices lower, despite pledges from OPEC producers that they would keep a tight lid on supply.
