Market Highlights: Bank, Auto drag Sensex by 300 pts; Nestle, HDFC Bank gain; Axis, SBI shed

Share Market Live Updates: The Indian stock market continued to remain sluggish on Wednesday with Sensex dropping 300 pts and Nifty 80. SBI and Axis Bank shed, while Nestle, HDFC Bank and Adani Enterprises gain. Most sectors shed except FMCG and IT with Bank, Auto and Finance leading the drag.

Share Market Updates: Sensex and Nifty made a minor recovery and ended around 0.4% lower on Wednesday with most heavy-weighted sectors shedding including Bank, Finance, Auto and Metal.

Mixed cues from September sales drag auto stocks, while Bank and Finance stocks fell on worries of a prolonged high-interest rate regime in the U.S.

RBI MPC meeting is underway for the October policy as global and domestic risks have increased from the August policy and domestic inflation remains well above the 4% target and will likely remain so for at least a few more quarters.

Asian markets are sharply lower on Wednesday after Wall Street tumbled as it focused on the downside of a surprisingly strong job market: the likelihood that interest rates will stay high.

Global bond yields got pulled higher by their Treasury peers to the greatest extent since the pandemic hit in 2020, as the US-led selloff spilled over to other markets. Traders are bracing for 10-year US yields to top 5% for the first time since 2007 after they jumped to 4.85% this week.

Indices shed around 0.4% with Sensex closing 300 pts lower and Nifty 80 pts; Axis, SBI and IndusInd dragged the most 

Indian shares fell on Wednesday as indices decided to follow other Asian peers amidst negative global cues with Finance, Bank, and Auto dragging the most. Mixed cues from September sales dragged auto stocks down, while the RBI MPC meet which is underway kept focus on Banking and Finance stocks.

The NSE Nifty 50 index shed 80 pts to end at 19,449, and the S&P BSE Sensex lost 290 pts to close at 65,226. Thirteen out of 15 broad-based sectoral indices ended in the red in today's session.

Adani Enterprises, HDFC Bank and Nestle India topped the stock charts, while Axis Bank shed 4% and SBI 2.5% and were the biggest laggards. NTPC, IndusInd Bank and Ultratech Cement were other major laggards.

Almost all sectoral indices dragged with Bank, Finance, Metal, Pharma and Realty dropped more than a per cent each. Only IT and FMCG managed to end with minor gains in today's session.

Asian stocks sank to 11-month lows on Wednesday as an ongoing rout in global bond markets saw U.S. yields reach 16-year highs, challenging equity valuations and souring appetite for risk assets in general.

Japan's Nikkei share average fell to an over four-month low tracking overnight Wall Street declines as U.S. Treasury yields surged to fresh 16-year peaks. The Nikkei dropped 2.3%. The broader Topix slid 2.5%, exceeding the 2% threshold that generally prompts the Bank of Japan to buy exchange-traded funds later in the day to support the market.

Hong Kong stocks extended losses to a second session as a sell-off in global bond markets hit equity markets, while investors awaited China's Golden Week holiday data.

Hong Kong's Hang Seng Index dipped 0.78%, and the Hang Seng China Enterprises Index declined 1.12%. Hang Seng Tech Index tumbled 1.71%.

A rout in European stocks deepened sending the benchmark index to a more-than-six-month low, as bond yields climbed on worries of higher-for-longer interest rates.

UK shares slipped on Wednesday, hurt by a sell-off in mining stocks as prices of most metals continued to fall, while retailer Tesco gained following an upbeat profit forecast.

Sensex Today | Share Market Updates: Apple Gets Downgraded by KeyBanc, Believing Valuation Near All-Time High

 Apple Inc. was downgraded at KeyBanc Capital Markets Inc., which said shares of the iPhone maker are trading near all-time high valuation levels though its sales growth is likely to slow.

“US sales are likely to struggle" on a challenging upgrade cycle for the iPhone amid slower consumer spending, analyst Brandon Nispel wrote in a note, cutting his rating on Apple to sector weight from overweight. In addition, “international growth expectations for reacceleration may be aggressive," he added.

Shares of Apple are still up 33% this year, though they have retreated more than 12% from their July record high amid the tech selloff sparked by concerns over high interest rates. Last month’s unsurprising launch of new iPhone models has done little to help reignite the rally. The stock fell 1.5% in premarket trading on Wednesday. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live: India Inc has some way to go to comply with data protection act: PwC India

A new report by PwC India on how compliant Indian companies are with the Digital Personal Data Protection Act, which came into effect on 11 August, reveals some startling facts. Only 41 of the 100 websites of Indian enterprises PwC India analysed for it study mentioned data principals’ (users’) rights to access, correct and erase their personal data, while only 9 sought consent from users that was free, specific and informed.

The report said 90% of the organisations showed users a privacy notice when collecting data through their websites, but since such a notice is the first step for any organisation entering the digital world, the high level of compliance did not indicate the presence of a robust data privacy framework. On the matter of third-party data transfers, 43% of organisations did not provide a clear reason for which personal data was shared with third-party data processors. (Read More)

Sensex Today | Share Market Updates: Treasuries Selloff Goes Global as Benchmark US Yields Near 5%

Global bond yields got pulled higher by their Treasury peers to the greatest extent since the pandemic hit in 2020, as the US-led selloff spilled over to other markets.

Traders are bracing for 10-year US yields to top 5% for the first time since 2007 after they jumped to 4.85% this week. The correlation between Bloomberg’s gauge of global securities and an index of Treasuries has reached the highest since March 2020.

A relentless selloff in US government bonds is sparking tumult across major bond markets, as traders come to grips with the realization that interest rates are likely to remain higher for longer. Australia’s 10-year yields rose faster than their US peers over the past week despite the local central bank remaining on hold, and the volatility has also spilled over into equities. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live: JM Financial on TVS Supply Chain Solutions: At an inflection point - BUY

Achal Lohade of JM Financial Institutional Securities views on TVS Supply Chain Solutions | At an inflection point

BUY INR 265 

TVS Supply Chain Solutions (TSCS), one of those who pioneered 3PL in India in early 2000, is today the largest and among the fastest-growing integrated supply chain solutions companies in India. TSCS has acquired over 20 companies in the last 16 years to achieve its 3C objective (capability, customer, country) and today enjoys one of the widest sectoral presences globally (across industrial, auto, consumer, healthcare, IT and tech infra). In FY23, TSCS served over 8,700 customers (top 5/10/20 customers constitute 18%/28%/39% respectively), including 72 ‘Fortune 500-2022’ companies. Given the integration with customer operations, customer relationships are usually sticky in nature (average relationship of 12/10 years respectively for the top 10 customers in ISCS and NS segments respectively), thus providing significant revenue/margin visibility. Integration of TSCS’ large acquisitions (acquired in 2018/19) – which was hampered by several global headwinds such as US-China trade war, Brexit, Covid-19 pandemic, Russia-Ukraine conflict, etc. ¬– is now complete and it is now on a firm footing, ready for a giant leap. Given the ultra-fragmented market and increasing outsourcing requirements of customers, we see TSCS in a sweet spot with a unique global presence and capabilities, and poised for significant operating profit growth over the medium term. We estimate TSCS to post 9%/21% CAGR in revenue and EBITDA respectively in FY23-26. We initiate coverage with BUY and a Sep’24TP of INR 265, a potential upside of 23%; CMP offers 24% CAGR over the next 3 years.

Sensex Today | Share Market Updates: Oil Steadies Ahead of OPEC Review and US Stockpiles Snapshot

Oil steadied ahead of an OPEC review of the global crude market and a weekly update of US stockpiles.

West Texas Intermediate was little changed near $89 a barrel, after the US benchmark swung by more than $2.50 a barrel on Tuesday before ending modestly higher. The alliance’s Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee convenes online later Wednesday, but delegates don’t expect the body to recommend any change in policy as Saudi Arabia and Russia lead output curbs.

In the US, meanwhile, the government will release figures on crude inventories against a backdrop of fast-declining holdings, including at the storage hub at Cushing. Estimates from the industry-funded American Petroleum Institute released Tuesday showed a modest increase at the Oklahoma site last week, but a draw on a nationwide basis, according to people familiar with the figures.

Sensex Today | Share Market Updates: Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: A significant trend in the market is that fundamentally strong stocks like large-cap private sector banks have turned weak on FII selling

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: Global cues are negative for markets in the near term. The sustained rise in the US bond yields, which has triggered continuous FII selling, is showing no signs of abating. The dollar index is now clearly above 107 and the US 10-year bond yield is at 4.83%. This means FIIs will continue to sell and the bulls will be on the back foot. On the positive side, valuations in some segments are becoming attractive and this may push DIIs and retail investors to buy stocks in such segments. An inevitable consequence of this complex situation is heightened volatility.

Investors should watch out for stocks which look strong even in a weak market. Stocks like Bajaj Finance, L&T and Zomato have been exhibiting strength even in a weak market.

A significant trend in the market is that fundamentally strong stocks like large-cap private sector banks have turned weak on FII selling. For long-term investors, this is an opportunity."

Sensex Today: Choice Broking views on today's market: it is advisable for market participants to exercise caution and adopt a more selective, stock-specific approach to their investments

Deven Mehata, Equity Research Analyst, Choice Broking: The benchmark Sensex and Nifty indices are likely to open lower on October 4 as trends in the GIFT Nifty indicate a negative start for the broader index with a loss of 120 points.

If the Nifty breaks below the low of the Thursday mother candle and sustains this break, it is likely to experience further declines, potentially reaching levels around 19350-19300. This area is considered a strong demand zone. Until the Nifty shows signs of a bullish reversal, it appears to be in a bearish trend.

Foreign institutional investors (FII) offloaded shares worth 2,034.14 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DII) purchased 1,361.02 crore worth of stocks on October 3, provisional data from the National Stock Exchange (NSE) showed.

In such a scenario where clear trends are lacking in both the Nifty and Bank Nifty, it is advisable for market participants to exercise caution and adopt a more selective, stock-specific approach to their investments.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Wall Street buckles under higher bond yields as Dow wipes out gain for the year

Wall Street fell sharply Tuesday as it focused on the downside of a surprisingly strong job market.

The S&P 500 dropped 1.4% to its lowest point in four months. The Dow Jones Industrial Average tumbled 430 points, or 1.3% and wiped out the last of its gains made for the year so far. Some of the heaviest losses came from Big Tech stocks, which sent the Nasdaq composite to a market-leading loss of 1.9%.

Stocks fell as the pressure on them cranked even higher from rising Treasury yields in the bond market. Such weight has been the main reason the S&P 500 has lost more than 40% of its value since the end of July, after charging higher for much of the year.

The 10-year Treasury yield climbed again Tuesday, up to 4.79% from 4.69% late Monday and from just 0.50% early in the pandemic. It touched its highest level since 2007 and rose after a report showed U.S. employers have many more job openings than expected. (AP)
