Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Mint Explainer: Why India isn't ready to ditch diesel just yet
The short answer is this: diesel is the most widely available, economically feasible and efficient fuel for trucks that carry heavy loads across long distances. The alternatives, such as hydrogen fuel cells and hydrogen combustion engines still face several hurdles. The price of hydrogen needs to drop by two-thirds for it to become viable for commercial use, industry experts told Mint. Even ethanol, which currently costs around ₹68 a litre, is an expensive fuel because it is far less efficient than petrol or diesel. (Read More)
Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: TIW Capital views on WPI figures: The sequential increase in manufactured goods prices should be taken as a positive sign
Mohit Ralhan, CEO - TIW CAPITAL views on Wholesale Price Index figures: Wholesale prices remained in deflationary territory for the fifth straight month. However, the pace of deflation declined as a decline in fuel prices moderated to -6% YoY from -12.8% in July. Food inflation continued to remain in double digits although declining on a sequential basis. It was primarily due to a 8.3% fall in vegetable prices, which came as a relief. While it's important to control food and fuel inflation as a high food and fuel inflation dampens sentiment, the sequential increase in manufactured goods prices should be taken as a positive sign. It shows that demand is picking up and manufacturers are able to take on price hikes, although it still remains small."

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: PL Stock Report: Sansera Engineering (SANSERA IN) - Visit Update - Non-ICE businesses should gain prominence - Not Rated
Himanshu Singh - Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd on Sansera Engineering (SANSERA IN): Rating: Not Rated | CMP: Rs922 | TP: NA
Visit Update - Non-ICE businesses should gain prominence
§ Diversification towards non-auto, xEVs to help grow at a faster rate.
§ Auto expertise helping with diversification in related non-auto business.
We visited Sansera Engineering’s (SANSERA) plants including the new aerospace plant at Bengaluru. The company is witnessing increase in capacity utilization after a low utilization phase over the last few years, due to downturn in the end-user industries and is now increasing focus on diversification. SANSERA has built long-term relationships with its customer by offering high product quality controls, shorter development and delivery time and end to end product offering. The company is ramping up its aluminum business, with three new lines expected to commission over the next 12 months. The aluminum business is seeing faster growth, led by industry tailwinds helping SANSERA with its diversification objective. The new Aerospace plant will ramp-up the revenue by +50% over next two years with peak revenue potential of Rs. 3.5bn. Also, the company remains confident of growing 2x faster than the industry in its ICE segments.
While we like SANSERA’s efforts in mitigating its risk, however, significant portion of its revenue is exposed to electrification. Strong orderbook with high exposure to non-ICE segment and global trend of Europe+1 and China+1 should help cushion the risk in domestic market (as it ramps-up exports). The company has set an objective of 20-20-20; which is 20% revenue growth, 20% EBITDA margin and 20% ROCE for the medium term. The stock trades at 26.2x FY23. Not Rated.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: JM Financial recommendation on Infrastructure Sector: Highway awarding to gather pace; ambitious monetization plans
Ashish Shah of JM Financial Institutional Securities views on Infrastructure Sector: NH awarding and construction has been weak during Apr-July’23 with only 1125km awarded and 2670km constructed. However, MoRTH targets to award/construct 13500km/13800km in FY24. We expect the awarding to gain momentum in coming months aided by strong bid pipeline of INR 688bn (as of 1st Sept-23). Given concerns over elevated debt levels of NHAI (INR 3.42tn in June-23), GOI has not been budgeting incremental borrowings for NHAI since FY23. The gap thus created has been made good by increased budgetary support leading to NHAI’s debt/total capital reducing from 1x in Mar-22 to 0.6x in June-23. Total allocation for Highways grew by 15% CAGR over FY22-24E. Monetization of national highways remains the top priority for NHAI. So far, NHAI has monetized 1614km of NH for INR 264bn via the TOT mode and 636km of NH for INR 102bn via two rounds ofInVIT. Further, NHAI has shortlisted 46 NH stretches of length 2612km with estimated valueof INR 600bn to be monetized in FY24. PNC Infratech remains our top pick.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: Strength in banking stocks can impart resilience to the market
Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: India has become the best performing large market in September with 4.2% gains. This move to record highs breaching the psychological 20000 mark on the Nifty has been achieved with an impressive 4.3% rise in Bank Nifty. Since financials account for 32 percent weightage in the Nifty, strength in financials, particularly the banks, can keep the Nifty resilient. More importantly, the valuations of banking stocks are even now fair. Strength in banking stocks can impart resilience to the market even though the overall market valuations are slowly rising beyond comfort levels.
Inflation data from the US present a mixed picture. While the CPI inflation data for August has come at 3.7% against expectations of 3.6%, core inflation was on expected lines coming at 4.3%. So the market thinking is that the Fed is likely to pause in September."

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Wall Street churns to a mixed finish after highly anticipated inflation data
Wall Street churned to a mixed finish on Wednesday after a highly anticipated report showed inflation accelerated across the country last month, but not by much more than expected.
The S&P 500 edged up by 5.54 points, or 0.1%, to 4,467.44 after flipping between small gains and losses a few times through the day. The Dow Jones Industrial Average dropped 70.46 points, or 0.2%, to 34,575.53, and the Nasdaq composite rose 39.97, or 0.3%, to 13,813.59.
The modest moves followed a shaky immediate reaction to the inflation report across financial markets, where bond yields and stock prices swung back and forth several times. The report said U.S. consumers paid prices last month that were 3.7% higher than a year earlier, up from July’s inflation rate of 3.2%.
That’s discouraging for shoppers paying higher prices, but much of the acceleration was because of higher fuel costs, which can swing very sharply and quickly. Ignoring those, underlying inflation trends still look to be pointing toward continued moderation, economists said. Inflation has been generally cooling since peaking above 9% last year. (AP)
