Sensex Today | Market Close Highlights : European shares moved lower on Tuesday as pledges by China to transform its economy amid stuttering growth failed to impress investors, while markets grew cautious ahead of a string of euro zone and U.S. economic data.

The pan-European STOXX 600 was down 0.3% by 9:10 GMT, after settling just below all-time highs on Monday.

Most Asian stocks slid on Tuesday, led by sharp declines in Hong Kong as the start of China's week-long annual session of parliament disappointed investors with its lack of big ticket stimulus plans to prop up the struggling economy.

Equity markets in the region were already on the back foot following a retreat from record highs on Wall Street on Monday, amid signs the U.S. Federal Reserve is in no hurry to cut interest rates. U.S. stock futures also pointed lower.

The Chinese government retained last year's target for economic growth of "around 5%" for this year, and announced plans to run a budget deficit of 3% of economic output, down from a revised 3.8% last year.

It also unveiled plans to issue 1 trillion yuan ($139 billion) in special ultra-long term treasury bonds, which are not included in the budget.

Mainland stocks reversed early losses with the blue-chip CSI 300 up about 0.45% by 0600 GMT, amid signs of suspected state-backed buying of some exchange-traded funds.

However, that failed to lift other markets in the region with Hong Kong's Hang Seng deepening earlier declines to 2.67%. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan lost 1%.

Tokyo finished flat, a day after Japan's benchmark Nikkei index hit a record high, closing above 40,000 points for the first time.

South Korean shares fell nearly 1% as chipmakers and automakers dropped after their recent rallies, while battery firms also tracked U.S electric-vehicle Tesla's sharp losses.

The benchmark KOSPI ended down 0.93% to 2,649.40, logging its biggest daily percentage loss since Feb. 14. on the back foot following a retreat from record highs on Wall Street on Monday, on signs the U.S. Federal Reserve is in no hurry to cut interest rates. U.S. stock futures also pointed lower.

The Chinese government retained last year's target for economic growth of "around 5%" for this year, and announced plans to run a budget deficit of 3% of economic output, down from a revised 3.8% last year.

It also unveiled plans to issue 1 trillion yuan ($139 billion) in special ultra-long term treasury bonds, which are not included in the budget.

Early announcements from the NPC suggest "large fiscal stimulus is off the table for now," said James Kniveton, senior corporate FX dealer at Convera.

The Shanghai Composite Index was trading flat after recovering early losses, but Hong Kong's Hang Seng deepened early declines to slump 2.4%.

Japan's Nikkei slid 0.42% after reaching a fresh peak on Monday.

MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dropped 0.7%.

Elsewhere, crude oil continued to tick lower, as demand headwinds counterbalanced a widely expected extension of voluntary output cuts through the middle of the year by the OPEC producer group.

Brent futures were off 10 cents to $82.70 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) eased 17 cents to $78.57 a barrel.

Sensex Today Live : SignatureGlobal shares get a ‘Buy’ call from ICICI Securities; brokerage sees 20% upside potential

Sensex Today Live : Brokerage firm ICICI Securities has initiated coverage of SignatureGlobal India, with a ‘Buy’ rating and a target price of 1,705. This suggests a potential 20% increase from the closing price on Monday. The firm’s valuation of the company is based on 9 times the average embedded EBITDA from sales bookings for FY24-26E.

The report from ICICI Securities states, “Our valuation multiple of 9x is 40% lower than that of DLF, Signature’s nearest competitor. This takes into account that Signature will need to reinvest its earnings for land bank renewal, while its peer DLF benefits from its historical possession of low-cost land in Gurugram.

Sensex Today Live : Lupin, Federal Bank, Westlife FoodWorld among Axis Securities' top 7 mid, small-cap picks for March; check full list

Sensex Today Live : Mid and smallcap stocks have maintained their upward trend in 2024 year-to-date (YTD), building on the momentum from 2023.

Axis Securities, a brokerage firm, suggests that the recent robust recovery of mid and smallcap stocks has resulted in their valuations becoming less attractive compared to largecap stocks.

This could trigger short-term adjustments in the wider markets, potentially redirecting investment flows towards largecap stocks.

Despite this, the brokerage maintains a positive long-term view of the broader market, highlighting its enduring appeal even amidst temporary market swings. Axis Securities has also released a list of seven promising mid and smallcap stocks for March. Let’s take a look. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Colin Shah, MD of Kama Jewelry, says gold prices may cross ₹70,000 mark by year end

Sensex Today Live : "The performance of yellow metal has shown a sustained momentum in February, along with a surge witnessed in the last week of the month, owing to global influence of the US Fed rates. 

While gold prices hover around INR 62,000, this gradual progression is building the steam for the prices to scale new-highs, and probably cross the INR 70,000 mark down the year. 

While there are talks of rate cuts by the US Fed in the near future driven by the larger goal of bringing the rate down to 4% bracket by the end of this year, we foresee gold prices to continue strengthening in the back-drop of global economic events and consumption demands.

Domestically too, the higher consumption rate along with a considerable size of population considering gold as an investment asset class, the prices will be overshadowed by the strong demand. 

Overall, we see the yellow metal prices being bullish throughout the year with the consumption class being strong determinants of the price performance."

Sensex Today Live : Kumar Rakesh, Analyst – IT & Auto at BNP Paribas, gives his views on what the demerger of Tata Motors' businesses means for its stock and valuations

Sensex Today Live : Kumar Rakesh, Analyst – IT & Auto at BNP Paribas, said, "This is a further step in the direction of streamlining Tata Motors' organization and capital structure, which started with American Depository Shares delisting, followed by plans of Differential Voting Rights delisting and now the announcement of separate listing of the Passenger Vehicle (PV) and Commercial Vehicle (CV) businesses. We value PV business at INR583/share and CV business at INR336/share. The board will likely appoint a valuation committee in the coming months to determine the share ratios for the demerged entities. This is a strong vote of confidence by the Tata Motors Board in the turnaround of its PV and JLR business, and its sustainability. We think JLR’s turnaround to become a modern luxury brand offers upside potential to our margin and FCF expectations. Further, despite the recent re-rating, TTMT is trading at an attractive FY25E FCF yield, highest in our coverage. TTMT is our sector top pick."

Sensex Today Live : Commodity derivatives are good for farmers – if govt stops meddling in markets

Sensex Today Live : On Monday, Mint reported that the finance ministry has added 13 new commodities to the derivatives trading list. This move aims to help businesses, including companies and farmers, as well as producers and consumers, to better manage price risks. The newly added commodities encompass farm products like apples, cashews, garlic, skimmed milk powder, white butter, timber, and bamboo.

Although India initiated derivatives trading in agricultural commodities over two decades ago, farmers have been unable to reap the benefits due to frequent suspensions and bans imposed by various governments.

For instance, in August 2021, the trading of chana derivatives was halted. Similarly, in October 2021, trading was suspended for several commodities including mustard, non-Basmati paddy, wheat, soya bean and its derivatives, crude palm oil, and moong dal. (Read the full story here.)

However, not all stocks have benefited from this surge. Some are still trading at their lowest levels in the past year.

Investing in a declining stock can be risky, often compared to catching a falling knife, as it has led to significant losses for many, with their investments continuing to decrease in value. Hence, deciding to buy during a dip requires thoughtful deliberation.

Nonetheless, if done judiciously, it can offer an excellent chance to acquire high-quality stocks at bargain prices. (Read the full story here.)
