Sensex Today | Market Close Highlights : European stocks held steady ahead of fresh data for the euro zone as investors sought catalysts to push the market higher. The yen touched its lowest level versus the dollar since 1990, fueling intervention bets.

Europe’s benchmark Stoxx 600 Index was little changed before the consumer and economic confidence data. US futures gained 0.3%. Asian equities were mixed as gains in Japanese and Australian shares were offset by losses in China.

Stocks have had a strong start to the year, with major benchmarks scaling record levels. The S&P 500 is set for its fifth month of straight gains, while Japan’s Nikkei 225 Index of shares closed within a whisker of its all-time high. Still, moves this week have been modest ahead of Friday’s release of the Federal Reserve’s preferred inflation gauge.

The yen pared some of its losses after Finance Minister Shunichi Suzuki ramped up hints of possible action. Policymakers are running out of choices short of purchasing the currency to prop it up after the Bank of Japan’s first interest rate hike since 2007 failed to change its trajectory.

Treasuries steadied after rebounding from session lows on Tuesday following a $67 billion sale of five year-notes. The dollar was slightly stronger against its Group-of-10 peers, while the offshore yuan weakened.

Shares retreated in China and Hong Kong, with technology companies accounting for the majority of the losses. The decline came as the region’s AI-linked companies mirrored the overnight fall in Nvidia’s shares, and as Alibaba’s plan to shelve listing of its logistics arm soured sentiment.

Oil extended a modest decline after an industry report pointed to a sizable build in US inventories, and wider markets struck a weaker tone ahead of the end of the quarter. Gold steadied close to its record high.

Sensex Today Live : Indian economy keeps its shine, with some red flags

Sensex Today Live : In the February edition of Mint's monthly EM tracker, India continued to lead among major emerging market (EM) economies, bolstered by strong domestic growth and a significant recovery in exports. The rupee's modest yet superior performance against the US dollar, coupled with the accomplishments of the domestic stock market, contributed to India's overall high score.

This strong position is particularly beneficial for the Narendra Modi government as it heads towards the Lok Sabha elections, especially amidst the looming recession in Europe. However, concerns are raised by the recent depreciation of the rupee, high food prices, and sluggish private consumption. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : As raw material prices inch up, FMCG firms brace for margin pressure

Sensex Today Live : The recent surge in the costs of key raw materials such as crude oil, palm oil, coffee, and cocoa could potentially disrupt the significant growth in gross margins that fast-moving consumer goods manufacturers have experienced in recent quarters.

Confronted with these cost escalations, businesses are likely to proceed with caution before passing these increases onto consumers, keeping in mind the competitive market and the necessity to maintain sales volumes.

"Most raw material prices are experiencing some inflation, while a few have remained largely stable over the past few quarters," stated BNP Paribas in a report on Tuesday. "The decrease in raw material prices had led to a substantial expansion in gross margins for most companies in our portfolio. We view the current price rise in the context of demand as a negative trend for the sector." (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : The Economic Department of State Bank of India presents a special research report on the “State” of the State Economy: The shifting sands of GSDP pre- and post-pandemic offer a glimpse into rising competitive federalism that benefits the bottom line with incremental per capita income, vanquishing inequality

Sensex Today Live : The COVID-19 pandemic surefootedly jeopardized the progress made in reducing global income inequality achieved in the previous two decades. In contrast to the global financial crisis of 2008-10 (chiefly a financial crisis with limited economic ramifications other than in EU), the deep and lingering economic recession triggered by the long pandemic and the lagging economic recovery in EMDEs compared with advanced economies have risen amongst-country income inequality, thwarting attempts to stay on course from many debt-ridden beleaguered economies

❑ However, the case for India is quite different with majority of states embarking upon a journey of embracing competitive spirit along fostering entrepreneurship, innovation, job creation, export centricity, infrastructure creation etc, boosting in totality the encompassing federalism

❑ We have analyzed the state-wise GSDP and per capita Income data through the last decade, capturing the underlying macro changes across major states as they benefit from the winds of changes sweeping the entire nation and its young populace

❑ The per capita income is the most important measure of convergence and equality across States as it determines both the accessibility and affordability of services…the results of the study vouch the rise of a knowledge economy on the anvil as select states have smartly harnessed the opportunities being created through the push for DPI (Digital Public Infrastructure), leveraging pillars that strengthen Innovation Capability/Climate, Human Capital/Leadership/Learning centricity, Information Technology Resources and Financial Resources in collaborative loops.

The average real GDP growth for all-India post-pandemic has risen to 8.1% as against 5.7% growth recorded in pre-pandemic period. In term of real growth, it can be interpreted that the country accumulated 235 bps during post-pandemic period over pre-pandemic phase.

❑ Of this, ~40% of the growth has been contributed by two states alone; Maharashtra (56 bps), followed by Uttar Pradesh (40 bps). Surprisingly, ~90% of the growth of 235 bps has come from top 10 states only. The other side of the coin, however, points to incremental and sustainable growth for the country as a whole as other states too embrace the competitive federalism to embark upon robust growth in coming years

❑ Remarkably, action-oriented policy measures unleashed across the pillars of knowledge economy through reforms spanning physical, market and digital infrastructure that are spearheading the information age and bridging the multiple divides embedded in various governance models, bridge the gap between comparatively better off states and states once considered laggard in terms of growth as differential has significantly narrowed down post FY’15...reaffirming the hypothesis that states are growing in sync and harmony with a growing India....this should anchor the quest for an incrementally balanced regional growth Pan-India going ahead….

❑ At GSDP front, among the major states, Gujarat has taken the pole position, increasing its GSDP 2.2x in a decade, closely followed by Karnataka as also Assam, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Telangana, Sikkim, and Madhya Pradesh…a case of dissipating regional biases sure! Also, Gujarat’s NSDP has increased 2.2x, followed by Karnataka, Assam, AP, Telangana, MP, Odisha, Haryana, and Tamil Nadu

❑ Among the major States, Gujarat per capita NSDP (FY22 over FY12) has increased the most, by 1.9x, followed by Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, and Assam

❑ State-wise Inequality, in terms of per capita NSDP, has shown normalization in post-pandemic period, reversing the course and coming down in recent years from the highs attained during FYs19/20 …..Per Capita NSDP Inequality has decreased from 0.523 in FY19 to 0.48 in FY22

❑ We believe the vanguards of the economic momentum can throw many surprises going forward as the race to embrace knowledge economy gains winds

Sensex Today Live : Butterfly needs to take off for Crompton to get second wind

Sensex Today Live : Shareholders of Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals Ltd are currently concerned as the company's stock has seen a 13% decline in 2024. The delay in the recovery of Butterfly Gandhimathi Appliances Ltd, where it holds a 75% stake, is a significant factor dampening investor confidence.

Although it might take some time for this situation to improve, there are a few positive aspects to consider. Recently, Crompton's management informed analysts that their fan product line is gaining substantial momentum, which is expected to result in a robust March quarter (Q4FY24). Furthermore, the demand for fans is anticipated to remain strong in the upcoming months due to the prediction of an intense summer this year. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : This industrial metal can electrify India’s growth. But where are the ores?

Sensex Today Live : In its relatively brief existence of 22 years, Sterlite Copper has managed to avoid shutdown on multiple occasions.

The copper smelter of the Vedanta group, a facility where metal is obtained by heating the ore to high temperatures, commenced operations in Thoothukudi in southern Tamil Nadu in 1996. The Madras High Court initially ordered its closure in 2010 for violating pollution standards. However, the Supreme Court granted a stay, allowing the plant to continue operations.

In 2013, the plant was once again shut down by the Tamil Nadu government due to a gas leak. The Supreme Court imposed a fine of 100 crore on the company for non-compliance with pollution standards but permitted the plant to resume operations upon meeting various conditions.

Sensex Today Live : Kotak Institutional Equities gives sector update on AMCs, says waiting for better risk-reward

Sensex Today Live : In our view, current valuations of AMC stocks largely capture relative differences in business performance and growth outlook.

While growth tailwinds will likely be the strongest for HDFC AMC (downgrade to REDUCE), we find relative valuations fully capturing this outperformance.

We upgrade ABSL to ADD given recent underperformance and retain ratings for Nippon (ADD) and UTI (REDUCE).

Risk-reward is relatively more attractive for Nippon given recent correction, strong SIP book and broadening of flows across categories. Await better entry points for HDFC AMC whereas fund performance revival is a key monitorable for ABSL/UTI.

Stock price performance for AMC stocks has been strong overall but quite divergent across AMCs with HDFC AMC (+110% in 1Y) and Nippon (+110%) outperforming ABSL (+46%) and UTI (+23%).

The sector as a whole is also now trading at 55-60% premium to broader markets. This reflects similarly sharp relative differences in equity AUM growth across four AMCs. HDFC and Nippon have outperformed (~60% yoy) overall industry (50%) and ABSL and UTI (~30%).

Valuation premium for AMCs reflects key traits such as (1) strong cash flow generation, (2) high degree of transparency and predictability, and (3) well-aligned incentives across investors, distributors and asset managers. These are offset by key pushback such as (1) predictability and sustainability of fund performance, and (2) structural fee pressure due to passives/regulations.

Our analysis of daily flows in March (up to 21st) across large categories has a few takeaways—(1) small-cap category has seen net outflows while mid-cap funds have seen positive but lower flows; (2) categories such as large-cap, flexi cap, hybrid funds have seen uptick in flows suggesting a possible shift in preferences; and (3) there is marked difference in flows across four AMCs with HDFC/Nippon seeing much stronger inflows in non-SMID categories.

In our view, strong SIP growth seen by HDFC/Nippon over the past 12 months will likely lead better stability in flows compared to industry.

We downgrade HDFC AMC to REDUCE (from ADD) and upgrade ABSL AMC to ADD (from REDUCE), while retaining ADD on Nippon and REDUCE on UTI.

HDFC AMC’s well-balanced fund mix will continue to drive strong flows and market share gains.

Nippon will likely see some impact due to exposure to SMID (35% of equity AUM) but likely offset by other categories seeing stronger flows.

ABSL AMC trades at attractive valuations but needs some visibility of turnaround in performance and flows in flagship categories.

UTI AMC has the weakest fund performance across four AMCs, resulting in outflows for the past 4-5 quarters.

Sensex Today Live : Kotak Institutional Equities says Indian recycling industry is rising with regulatory resurgence

Sensex Today Live : We see sunrise potential in the Indian recycling industry, led by a growing focus on circular economy and decarbonization, favorable economics and an evolving regulatory framework.

The Indian recycling industry is yet to achieve maturity and is dominated by unorganized players, leading to substantially lower recycling rates compared to the West. Government policies are gradually addressing these challenges.

The Battery Waste Management Rules, 2022, is one such landmark policy that should benefit organized lead recyclers such as GRAV. The prospects for plastic and e-waste recycling also appears promising but require further policy support. We initiate coverage on GRAV, a market leader with compounding growth potential, with a BUY rating.

Recycling rate in India (~20%) is significantly lower than the West (60-80%) due to a large informal sector, the lack of a policy framework and inadequate collection infrastructure.

We believe recycling of lead, plastics and e-waste offers the most promising prospects, in the same order, driven by economics, scrap availability, level of formalization and an evolving regulatory framework.

Lead (Pb): BWMR and EPR on lead-acid batteries (LAB) should increase scrap availability and shrink the unorganized sector to 25% by FY2028E from 65% market share currently

Plastics: Plastic Waste Management Rules 2022 (PWM), notified in 2022, is a major step toward increasing recycling but the enforcement ecosystem is still evolving.

E-Waste: Scrap availability is increasing at a rapid pace, but a lack of technology and the presence of hazardous materials are key hurdles restricting growth.

EV battery recycling is on the cusp of taking off. A few recycling units are being set up in India; however, a wide variety of battery chemistries/black mass is a key challenge.

Aluminum (Al): Scrap is largely imported where secondary aluminum has different end-uses and demand has been outperforming primary aluminum.

Gravita India (GRAV IN): Initiate with BUY—Leading play on circular economy

GRAV is a market leader in India’s emerging recycling industry, where the key business segment, lead recycling, enjoys significant tailwinds.

Its expansion plans into other segments give strong visibility on growth and diversification. GRAV’s peers (POCL, NILE and Pilot) in lead recycling lack geographic diversification, have inferior operating margins and offer lower growth visibility.

We forecast GRAV’s revenue/PAT to record 20%/22% CAGR in the next three years, with 20%+ ROCE and see potential for multi-year compounding growth. Initiate with a BUY with FV of Rs1,200/share (~30% upside).

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on March 27

Sensex Today Live : The Indian stock market's key indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are projected to start off on a lower note on Wednesday, influenced by mixed signals from global markets.

The Gift Nifty trends also suggest a negative opening for the Indian benchmark index. The Gift Nifty was trading at around 22,050 level, nearly 40 points lower than the previous close of Nifty futures.

On Tuesday, the domestic equity indices broke their three-day winning streak, ending with a half percent drop, with the Nifty 50 maintaining the 22,000 level. The Sensex fell by 361.64 points to close at 72,470.30, while the Nifty 50 ended 92.05 points, or 0.42%, lower at 22,004.70.

The Nifty 50 chart showed a small positive candle with a gap-down opening (body gap, not a western gap).

"This candle pattern was formed next to the long bull candle of Friday. This suggests a wider range-bound movement for the market. The market is receiving strong support at the lows around 21,900, and the Nifty is encountering stiff resistance at the highs around 22,150 - 22,200 levels. Therefore, a decisive move beyond this range could trigger a sharp market movement in either direction," stated Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst at HDFC Securities.

Sensex Today Live : Six key things that changed for market overnight - Gift Nifty, US consumer confidence to oil prices

Sensex Today Live : On Wednesday, the domestic equity indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are projected to commence on a subdued note, taking cues from a mixed global market. Asian markets saw slight gains, while US stock indices concluded lower the previous night. Investors are awaiting crucial economic data in a week shortened by holidays to discern the policy direction of the US Federal Reserve.

The market has been gradually raising its expectations for a rate cut of at least 25 basis points by the US central bank in June. The current prediction stands at a 70.4% probability, an increase from last week's 59.2%, as shown by the CME’s FedWatch Tool and reported by Reuters.

On Tuesday, the benchmark indices of the Indian stock market concluded lower by half a percent, breaking their three-day winning streak due to weak global indicators. The Sensex fell by 361.64 points or 0.50%, closing at 72,470.30, while the Nifty 50 ended 92.05 points or 0.42% lower at 22,004.70.

Siddhartha Khemka, Head of Retail Research at Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd, stated, "The shortened trading week, the upcoming monthly expiry of derivatives, and the release of global economic data this week have kept investors at bay. We anticipate the market to consolidate within a wider range. However, purchases in the broader market before the end of the financial year cannot be discounted." (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : Tepid Asia, US markets indicate muted start in India

Sensex Today Live : Stock markets in India was likely to open on a muted note following mixed trading in Asia and the US market overnight. At 8:03 am, Gift Nifty futures was at 22,045.50, around 40 points ahead of Nifty 50's Tuesday close of 22,004.70.

Stocks in Asia were mixed after US benchmarks wiped out gains in the final half hour of trading, with investors tweaking portfolios after a rally that’s already topped $4 trillion this year.

Shares fell at the open in Hong Kong and mainland China, while rising in Japan and Australia. The recent advance in China’s equity markets will likely be tested, as key financial institutions announce earnings, starting with Industrial & Commercial Bank of China Ltd. later Wednesday.

US stock futures pointed to gains after the S&P 500 declined for a third day. The US equity benchmark is on track to notch five straight months of gains.

The dollar was marginally stronger against its Group-of-10 peers, while the offshore yuan was little changed after the People’s Bank of China once again boosted support for the currency.

Oil extended a modest decline after an industry report pointed to a sizable build in US inventories, and wider markets struck a weaker tone ahead of the end of the quarter. Gold fell, but traded close to its record.
