Market Close Highlights : Global equities headed for a fresh record after a tech-led rally on Wall Street, amid optimism Wednesday’s key US inflation report won’t undermine the case for Federal Reserve interest-rate cuts.

European stocks gained and US equity futures were steady, while the MSCI All Country World Index extended its longest run of gains since January. In the run-up to US consumer price index data, the S&P 500 advanced despite Jerome Powell’s signals that interest rates will be higher for longer and a mixed reading on producer inflation.

Treasury yields ticked lower and a gauge of the dollar was flat before the consumer-inflation data, which is expected to show a slight moderation in price increases. Core CPI, which excludes volatile food and energy costs, is seen slowing to 0.3% month-on-month, from 0.4%.

“An in-line-with-consensus US core CPI read is discounted and in the price, but that may be enough to promote relief buyers and see the index push higher," said Chris Weston, head of research at Pepperstone Group Ltd. “A core CPI read below 0.25% month-on-month and I certainly wouldn’t want to be short."

Among individual movers in Europe, Experian Plc jumped as much as 8.7% after reporting full-year earnings. ABN Amro Bank NV dropped more than 5% after unchanged guidance. Burberry Group Plc declined, dragging the consumer goods sector lower, after reporting a slump in sales.

US producer prices climbed in April by more than projected, though key components that feed into the Fed’s preferred inflation gauge were more muted. Several categories in the PPI report that are used to calculate the personal consumption expenditures price index eased.

“A more granular look suggests the components that feed into PCE inflation sent mixed signals," said Krishna Guha at Evercore. “This means that the burden largely remains on CPI."

A survey conducted by 22V Research showed 49% of investors expect the market reaction to the CPI report to be “risk-on" — while only 27% said “risk-off."

A gauge for benchmarks in Asia gained after closing at a two-year high Tuesday, with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. leading the advance. Shares in Japan ended little changed, while those in mainland China slipped. Hong Kong markets are closed for a holiday.

The offshore yuan edged higher, mirroring gains in other China-economy sensitive currencies including the Australian dollar and Thai baht, following a Bloomberg report that the government is considering a proposal to buy millions of unsold homes in an attempt to salvage the beleaguered property market.

In commodities, oil advanced after an industry report showed shrinking US stockpiles, and traders looked ahead to a report from the International Energy Agency that’ll shed light on market balances into the second half. Copper futures in New York rallied to a record high after a short squeeze that saw the most-liquid contract trading at a hefty premium. Gold steadied after rising almost 1% on Tuesday.

Sensex Today Live : Elara Securities India recommends to 'ACCUMULATE' JK Cement

Sensex Today Live : JK Cement Rating: ACCUMULATE

Target Price : 4,413

Upside : 13%

CMP : 3922 (as on 14 May 2024)

Sensex Today Live : Around 86% of JKCE’s grey capacity is in North India, Central India and Gujarat. These regions are likely to operate at higher utilization levels than all-India and thereby likely to earn better profitability. Also, we believe gradual completion of ongoing capex will be the key volume driver. Further, lower fuel prices and other cost savings initiatives should help JKCE on the cost front.

Management expects around 150-200/tonne of cost savings in the next two years, led by freight cost optimization and increased use of green power & alternative fuels. Therefore, we reiterate Accumulate.

We pare down our EBITDA ~7% for FY25E and ~2% for FY26E to factor in weakness in cement prices. However, as we roll over to March 2026E from December 2025E, our SOTP-based TP remains unchanged at 4,413. We ascribe 12x March 2026E EV/EBITDA to grey cement, 18x March 2026E EV/EBITDA to white cement (including wall putty) and 15x March 2026E EV/EBITDA to the paint business.

Sensex Today Live : Anand Rathi Research recommends to 'BUY' Cera Sanitaryware

Sensex Today Live : Weak demand continued to restrain Cera Sanitaryware’s topline growth, leading to a revised Mar’27 timeline (Sept’25 earlier) for management’s Rs29bn revenue guidance. Cost optimisation, however, helped its operating margins surpass our estimates. The strong net-cash balance sheet persisted, with capex funded via internal accruals. We retain our Buy, with a lower 12-mth TP of 8,740 (earlier 9,277), 35x FY26e PE.

15 May 2024, 02:38:08 PM IST

Sensex Today Live : Anand Rathi Research recommends to 'BUY' Zydus Wellness, citing management optimism about double digit revenue growth

Sensex Today Live : With its Q4 revenue up 10% y/y (vs. the Street’s 5% y/y estimate) and a 45bp expansion in its EBITDA margin to 20.7% (20%), Zydus Wellness posted a healthy quarterly performance.

Its personal care range (EverYuth, Nycil) posted a good 23% y/y growth, helped by the upswing in consumption demand while Food & Nutrition posted 6% y/y growth, hurt by price cuts in Nutralite.

Management was optimistic of double-digit revenue growth in FY25, led by innovation, distribution and its international foray and expected margin to revert to 17-18% over the next two years, aided by operating leverage and softer input prices.

We tweak our FY25e/F26e EPS slightly to factor in the Q4 performance and a lower FY25 tax rate. We retain our long-term view of a double-digit revenue CAGR and margins returning to 18-20% over 2-4 years. We retain our Buy with a higher 12-mth TP of 2,150, 33x FY26e EPS (earlier 1,910).

Sensex Today Live : Amit Anwani, Research Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher, recommends to 'ACCUMULATE' Apar Industries, citing strong outlook across segments

Sensex Today Live : Apar Industries Rating: ACCUMULATE | CMP: 8,340 | TP: 8,877

We revise our FY25/26E EPS estimates by +5.1%/+3.3%, factoring in strong outlook in the Conductors segment.

Robust opportunities presented by private and public capex in T&D industry along with transition from ACSR to AL-59 alloy conductors will drive growth in Conductors business. Cables business outlook remains promising, with expanding opportunities in renewable energy, railway, defense, and other sectors.

We believe APR’s focus towards value-added products and strong traction in exports business will continue to drive strong topline & profitability in the long run. The stock is currently trading at a P/E of 41.3x/32.2x FY25/26E. We roll forward to Mar-26 and maintain an ‘Accumulate’ rating with a revised SoTP-derived TP of 8,877 ( 6,890 earlier) valuing Conductors/ Cables/Specialty Oil segments at 35x/40x/15x FY26E (27x/33x/12x Dec-25E earlier) owing to a robust business outlook across segments.

Sensex Today Live : Jinesh Joshi, Research Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher, recommends to 'BUY' Safari Industries (India)

Sensex Today Live : Safari Industries (India) Rating: BUY | CMP: 2,019 | TP: 2,225

Safari’s top-line was lower than our expectation as pricing aggression on e-com channel was measured. On the other hand, GM improved to 50.6% (PLe 47.9%) due to improvement in HL:SL mix. The expansion plan at Jaipur is on track and production is expected to begin from 3QFY25E.

Timely operationalization of the new plant will bring in cost competitiveness and enable Safari to compete better at lower end of the mass market. In addition, launch of backpacks & duffle bags under brand “Urban Jungle" is likely to give push to its premiumization journey. Given near term growth challenges amid lower number of auspicious wedding days in 1QFY25 and rising competitive intensity we have lowered our EPS estimates by 4%/2% in FY25E/FY26E respectively.

We maintain our positive stance on Safari and expect sales/PAT CAGR of 21%/24% over FY24-FY26E. Maintain ‘BUY’ with a TP of 2,225 valuing the stock at 40x FY26E EPS (no change in target multiple).

Sensex Today Live : Swarnendu Bhushan, Co. Head of Research at Prabhudas Lilladher, recommends to 'HOLD' Jubilant Ingrevia, says pricing pressure continues

Sensex Today Live : Jubilant Ingrevia Rating: HOLD | CMP: 512 | TP: 526

Challenging market conditions continue to persist especially for the Agrochemical sector which may take another 1-2 quarters to get back to normal. Pharmaceutical segment had healthy volumes and the Nutrition segment saw steady demand for the quarter but due to excess supply from China, realization remained under pressure.

Specialty chemical saw a 30% QoQ growth primarily driven by growth in Fine chemical & Microbial and Nutrition products. The company commissioned multi-purpose agro actives & Intermediate plant and Diketene derivatives plant in Q4FY24 and aims to invest in opportunities such as Food and Cosmetic grade Niacinamide and Multipurpose Plants.

We believe that although the company is adding multiple capacities performance and margins will continue to be impacted until international players keep on dumping at lower prices. The stock trades at 27x FY26 EPS. Reiterate ‘Hold’ rating with SOTP based valuation of 526.

Sensex Today Live : Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research) at Mehta Equities, says uncertainty surrounds a potential September US rate cut

Sensex Today Live : "In yesterday’s trading session, Nifty continued its upward trend for the third consecutive day, with a notable advance-decline ratio favoring bulls. Despite Chairman Powell's remarks offering little new insight, optimism prevailed as major Wall Street indices approached record highs. However, looming uncertainty surrounds a potential September US rate cut, contingent upon inflation data due for release soon. Amidst this backdrop, Nifty's options data hints at a trading range of 22000-23000, with strategic support and resistance levels identified. Notably, FIIs sold shares worth 4,066 crores, while Corporate India awaited Q4 results from prominent names. Recommended trades include buying Nifty and Bank Nifty at current market prices, with AUROBINDO PHARMA singled out as a stock to watch, anticipating any corrective declines with bullish sentiment."
