Market Close Highlights : Stocks advanced and Treasuries edged higher as global markets steadied after the turbulence earlier in the week. Asian currencies rallied as authorities pushed back against a stronger dollar.

Europe’s Stoxx 600 index climbed 0.3% while US futures pointed to the S&P 500’s first gains in five days at the Wall Street open. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. reported its first profit rise in a year, after strong AI demand revived growth at the world’s biggest contract chipmaker. An index of the dollar fell for a second day and yields on 10-year Treasuries dipped 2 basis points to 4.57%.

While investors are unwinding some of the declines seen so far in April, the case for higher US yields and a stronger dollar remains after robust US economic data and sticky inflation forced traders to cool their bets on interest rate cuts by the Federal Reserve.

Attention Thursday will turn to earnings from companies including Netflix Inc, Blackstone Inc. and L’Oreal SA as well as initial US jobless data and speakers from a raft of central banks.

In Asia, all major regional stock markets including China, Japan, Australia and South Korea rose. A global stocks gauge ticked higher, on track for its first advance in a week.

The won led the climb in regional currencies, while the yen was steady following a joint statement from US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen alongside the finance ministers of Japan and South Korea that noted “serious concerns" about the depreciation of the two Asian currencies. A global gauge of emerging-market currencies gained for a second day, suggesting some stability after hitting a 2024 low earlier this week.

Elsewhere, oil held onto most of Wednesday’s 3% decline, weighed by weaker Chinese industrial data and a swelling in US crude inventories, while gold edged higher.

Sensex Today Live : Kotak Institutional Equities gives update on Hotels and Restaurants sector; says strength in room rates reflects underlying demand

Sensex Today Live : Average hotel room rates in India rose 14% yoy to 7,560/day in 11MFY24. The exit room rate for February 2024 at 8,900/day (+7% yoy) scaled a new peak, with occupancy at 73%, implying a RevPAR of 6,500/day (+10% yoy).

The strength in ARRs gives us improved visibility for FY2025E, leading to an upward revision of 2-5% in ARRs across coverage companies, implying up to 6% revision in FY2025E EBITDA.

Of the 55k incremental branded keys expected for the industry over FY2023-28E, India saw 9.5k keys getting added in 11MFY24, implying that new supply would continue to come at a measured pace. We remain constructive on the hospitality space in India, owing to favorable demand-supply dynamics.

Chalet Hotels: We have revised our EBITDA estimates for Chalet by 6% for FY2025E and 7% for FY2026E, with a revised FV of 900 (from 790) to factor in (1) higher room rates for the premium hotels, (2) equity infusion of 10 billion at 792/share and (3) the acquisition of a 158-key property in the NCR. We expect it to deliver the highest EBITDA CAGR within our coverage of 41% over FY2024-26E, as it adds ~600 keys over this period (and another 280 thereafter).

Indian Hotels: We have revised our EBITDA estimates for IHCL by 6% for FY2025E and 10% for FY2026E with a revised FV of 620 (from 535) to factor in (1) higher room rates for the premium hotels, and (2) lower operating costs as reflected in the business performance for 9MFY24. Indian Hotels has a healthy pipeline of new keys (~11k) spread across owned/ leased properties (2.6k keys) and managed properties (8.5k keys). The opening of the new 371-key Ginger Hotel at the Mumbai Airport could add to the earnings profile.

We revise our EBITDA estimates for FY2025/26 by 6%/10%, aided by ARR improvement and some margin expansion, implying a 32% EBITDA CAGR over FY2024-26E.

Lemon Tree Hotels: We revise our EBITDA estimates for Lemon Tree by 2%/4% for FY2025/26—this is lower than the revision for peers as we see a tad lower ARR growth for mid-tier hotels as highlighted above, as well as limited scope for ARR improvement at Aurika, Mumbai. Nevertheless, Lemon Tree should see 39% EBITDA CAGR over FY2024-26E as the Aurika (~2X ARR in comparison to the portfolio average) stabilizes in terms of its occupancy and earnings.

SAMHI Hotels: We revise our EBITDA estimates for SAMHI by 6%/5% for FY2025/26E as we improve our ARR growth assumptions for the next year. We expect SAMHI to deliver positive net profit in FY2025E (~Rs1.2 bn), aided by higher room rates and lower finance costs. With a net debt of Rs18 bn as of March 2024E, we expect the finance costs to decline 40% yoy to Rs2.2 bn in FY2025E.

Sensex Today Live : What drives crypto HODLers despite volatility, uncertain regulations, high taxes

Sensex Today Live : Charlie Munger's well-known saying, "The big money is not in the buying and the selling but in the waiting," resonates deeply with all long-term stock market investors. However, this investment wisdom is not exclusive to securities market investors.

Cryptocurrency holders, also known as HODLers, also adhere to this principle. They distinguish themselves from transient investors who trade cryptocurrencies for quick profits. A HODLer is someone who retains their cryptocurrencies for an extended period, undeterred by market fluctuations. (Read the full story here.)

Sensex Today Live : IMF projection: A tale of fickle GDP forecasts, in charts

Sensex Today Live : On Tuesday, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) upgraded India's economic growth forecast for the fiscal year 2024-25 to 6.8%, a significant increase from the 6.5% prediction made in January. This revision, along with similar upward adjustments by other prominent agencies, reaffirms India's position as the world's fastest-growing major economy. However, the question remains: how accurate are these forecasts typically?

The IMF's World Economic Outlook reports provide nine GDP growth predictions for a given year, spread over a 24-month period. The initial forecast is released in January, two fiscal years before the year in question (for instance, January 2019 for the fiscal year 2020-21), and the final projection is made in January of the relevant year (such as January 2021 for the fiscal year 2020-21).

Sensex Today Live : What to expect from Indian stock market in trade on April 18

Sensex Today Live : The Indian stock market indices, Sensex and Nifty 50, are likely to open lower on Thursday tracking mixed global market cues.

The trends on Gift Nifty also indicate a weak start for the Indian benchmark index. The Gift Nifty was trading around 22,148 level, a discount of nearly 50 points from the Nifty futures’ previous close.

On Tuesday, the Indian stock market indices extended losses for the third straight session as geopolitical concerns weighed on investor sentiments. The Sensex declined 456.10 points, or 0.62%, to close at 72,943.68, while the Nifty 50 dropped 124.60 points, or 0.56%, to settle at 22,147.90. Nifty 50 formed a small positive body candle on the daily chart with minor upper shadow. The Indian stock market was closed on Wednesday for Ram Navami.

“Technically, this market action signals range bound action in the market with weak bias. Normally, such formations post reasonable decline indicate an upside bounce from the lows. Nifty is currently placed near the crucial support of ascending trend line as per weekly chart and near lower end of an ascending channel on the daily chart around 22,000 levels. Hence, there is a possibility of a bounce in the short term," said Nagaraj Shetti, Senior Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.

Asian markets exhibited mixed trading, while the US stock market concluded lower overnight due to a sell-off in technology stocks. The Indian stock market remained closed on Wednesday in observance of Ram Navami.

Investors are apprehensive that the ongoing conflict could trigger a surge in crude oil prices, which could subsequently exert pressure on inflation. Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research) at Mehta Equities Ltd, suggests that the bearish trend might dominate Thursday's session as well, with the benchmark Nifty potentially facing downside risk until it reaches the psychological level of 22,000.
