Indian shares inched up to their highest in more than one month on Friday, led by gains in Finance, Realty and Energy stocks, to extend a five-session winning streak and largely ignoring the softness in global equities.

Japan's Nikkei share average fell more than 1% on Friday, sending it to a first weekly loss in three, as the benchmark tracked Wall Street losses amid worries about tighter U.S. Federal Reserve policy and a Chinese iPhone ban.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Angel One Ltd views on Copper (Commodity)

Saish Sandeep Sawant Dessai, Research Associate: Base Metals, Angel One Ltd: Copper prices continue to extend weakness, as prices plunged to their lowest point in over two weeks as several factors converged to weigh on the market. A notable surge in copper inventories, soaring by 21% to 133,850 metric tons and reaching levels not seen since October, was a stark reminder of the supply-demand dynamics. Additionally, the robust U.S. dollar, bolstered by strong economic data and lower jobless claims, exerted downward pressure on copper and is expected to persist throughout the year.

China, the world's largest copper consumer, experienced a 5% drop in copper imports in August compared to the previous year, reflective of weak demand amid a challenging economic environment.

Rising domestic copper production also contributed to reduced reliance on imported copper. Despite the import decline, domestic copper output surged by 15.5% year-on-year in August, reaching a record 989,000 tons, driven by strong demand for raw materials like copper ore and concentrate, which hit a record high.

Overall, China's unwrought copper and copper products imports have decreased by 10% in the first eight months of 2023 compared to the previous year, underscoring the ongoing challenges in the copper market.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Kama Jewelry's Expectations from the upcoming Sovereign Gold Bond Tranche 2

Colin Shah, MD, Kama Jewelry expectations from the upcoming Sovereign Gold Bond Tranche 2: We anticipate immense potential benefits from the upcoming Sovereign Gold Bond Tranche in FY24, offering a secure avenue for investors seeking exposure to gold. The first series was issued on June 19 at 5,926 per gram. We expect the second issue, 2023-24 Series II, which will be issued between September 11 and 15, 2023 to be issued at a slightly lower rate. Gold is expected to outperform most asset classes due to the anticipated slowdown in China, and other major economies including the US. This will drive high alpha-seeking investors to alternative investments and safer avenues like gold. According to various analyst estimates Gold is expected to rise by more than 10% GAGR up to the year 2026. Considering these factors, we expect the 2023-24 Series II gold bonds to deliver substantially above-average returns of more than 20% in the long term."

PL Stock Report: Exide Industries (EXID IN) - Company Update - On path to strong revenue and margin growth - Accumulate

Himanshu Singh - Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd on Exide Industries (EXID IN) - Rating: ACCUMULATE | CMP: Rs274 | TP: Rs295

Company Update - On path to strong revenue and margin growth

Quick Pointers:

§ Strong demand across divisions to continue in medium term

§ Lithium ion investment to come on-board by FY25-end

EXIDE industries’ (EXID) core segment has seen strong growth over the last two years due to pent up demand, and we expect it to grow at c9% CAGR over FY23-26E (ex li-ion battery revenue) with growth to pick-up from 2HFY24. Battery space is undergoing huge technological shift and EXID is investing Rs. 60bn in phased manner in 12GWh lithium ion cell plant to leverage future demand from electric vehicles (EV) segment. However, rapid shift in technology & increased competition will require agility with high investments.

We believe that EXID is well placed to benefit for medium term given its aggressive product and network expansion strategy along with investment in new technologies and strong traction in the industrial segment. Automotive segment is expected to continue with its recovery led by 1) leadership position in growing OEM & after market segment, 2) launch of new & advanced products for new applications and 3) expansion of network in Indian after-market and export markets. Industrial segment is expected to benefit from 1) pick-up in demand led by government and private capex, 2) increased investment in renewable power, 3) good traction in projects vertical like railways, telecom, infrastructure, etc. and grow faster than the automotive segment. We resume coverage with an “Accumulate" rating and SoTP of Rs.295 at 15x Sep-2025 EPS (currently trading at c21x PE on FY24E EPS).

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Geojit Financial Services and Choice Broking views on today's market

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: Sustained DII investment supported by strong retail buying is driving the market higher in spite of FII selling. In September, so far, FIIs have sold in the cash market for 8608 crores and DIIs have bought for 5715 crores. In spite of this net institutional selling Nifty is up by 434 points for the month so far. This, and the hyperactivity in the mid-and small-cap segments, point to the active participation of retail investors in the rally. Also, the ‘buy on dips’ strategy is working well for traders. This market construct has the potential to take the rally to near the Nifty record high of 19991. Frontline banking and IT stocks assisted by L&T and RIL have the potential to sustain the rally in the near-term. Bubble building up in segments of small-caps is an area of concern."

Deven Mehata, Equity Research Analyst, Choice Broking: On September 8th, the anticipated market scenario suggests a slightly upbeat opening for both the benchmark Sensex and Nifty indices. The GIFT Nifty's indications point to a positive start for the broader index, with an expected gain of 24 points. On the previous trading day, the BSE Sensex made an impressive leap of 385 points, reaching a level of 66,266. Similarly, the Nifty50 showed strength by rising 116 points to settle at 19,727. Notably, the daily charts depict the formation of a robust, long bullish candlestick pattern, and this achievement is underscored by the index's ability to firmly maintain its position above the previously declining resistance trend line.

This development carries significant weight as it signifies a pivotal milestone. For the first time in three weeks, the Nifty has successfully reclaimed this crucial level. Additionally, the Relative Strength Index (RSI) has shown a positive crossover, currently registering at 63, which emphasizes a moderately bullish sentiment prevailing in the market.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Norway pension fund to vote against ICICI Securities dellisting

Both Norway's government pension fund manager and an Indian portfolio management service (PMS) are poised to oppose the proposal for the delisting of ICICI Securities, amidst a growing chorus of discontent among investors who perceive the stock as ripe for a potential revaluation, reports MoneyControl.

Notably, Norway's Norges Bank Investment Management's Government Pension Fund Global holds a 3.13 percent stake in ICICI Securities. Similarly, a portfolio management service based in southern India, which also maintains approximately a 3 percent ownership stake in the company, aligns itself against the proposed delisting.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Wall Street stumbles on Thursday in mixed trading as Big Tech stocks drop again

Wall Street slipped in mixed trading Thursday as the threat of high interest rates continues to dog Big Tech stocks.

The S&P 500 fell 14.34, or 0.3%, to 4,451.14 for its third straight loss. The Nasdaq composite was hit particularly hard by the drop for tech stocks, and it sank 123.64, or 0.9%, to 13,748.83.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average held up better than the rest of the market because it has less of an emphasis on tech, and it rose 57.54 points, or 0.2%, to 34,500.73.

Stocks felt pressure from the bond market, where yields rose earlier in the week after a report showed stronger growth for U.S. services industries last month than economists expected. Yields remained high after a report on Thursday said fewer U.S. workers applied for unemployment benefits last week than expected.

While such reports are encouraging for the economy, indicating a long-predicted recession is not near, they could also keep conditions humming strongly enough to push upward on inflation.

The Federal Reserve has already hiked its main interest rate to the highest level in more than two decades in hopes of slowing the economy enough to drive inflation back down to its 2% target. It’s come close, and inflation has cooled from its peak above 9% last summer. But the worry is that the last percentage point of improvement may be the toughest for the Fed. (AP)
