Axis Securities festive demand picks: Maruti; Bajaj Finance; SBI Cards; Trent, Relaxo; V-mart
Axis Securities says, "Multiple catalysts are triggering renewed excitement in the air. A few of these are:
· The Indian economy’s remarkable resilience in FY23 to date with an uptick visible in most of the high-frequency indicators.
· Improvements in urban demand with rural demand, too, on the verge of improvement as normal monsoon is reviving confidence in demand recovery in rural India.
· Fully functioning contact-intensive services sectors such as Travel & Tourism, Hotels, Schools, and Colleges post COVID 3.0. In addition, all public transport systems like Air, Rail, and Bus are also now fully operational, supporting fast and resilient recovery in economic activities.
· Remittances (major contributors to rural income) likely to return to pre-Covid levels with the pick-up in the services sectors.
· Easing supply chain conditions and cool-off in commodity prices, providing a breather from high inflation. In this context, the market narrative has shifted from inflation concern to a cool-off in inflation expectation in the next one or two quarters.
Based on the above themes, we recommend the following stocks that are well-placed to be the beneficiaries of robust festival demand: Maruti; Bajaj Finance; SBI Cards; Trent, Relaxo; V-mart

Ashika Stock Broking on Nifty: During the day, index is likely to open on a flat note
Tirthankar Das, Technical & Derivative Analyst, Retail, Ashika Stock Broking Ltd: On the technical front, Nifty formed a bullish candle on the daily chart however the chart structure has not witnessed any imperative changes and continues to remain rangebound. There are evidence of reversal pattern in weekly time frame hence in coming sessions, key thing to watch will be a faster retracement above August highs of 18000 that will signal end of the ongoing corrective phase. Else, prolonged consolidation in 17200-17800 range is expected to continue. On the oscillator front, the 14-period RSI has witnessed a sell crossover and presently trading below the 60-level mark. Thus, one need to avoid trading aggressively amid global nervousness. Considering the present situation, a bare minimum correction of 38.6% of the entire rally from 15,183 to 17,992 comes around 16900 followed by 50% correction at 16600. On the upside present setup indicates that Nifty can move towards 17,992 followed by 18,114 in the coming days with immediate support stands at 17,350 and Index need to sustain above the said level with some authority for the bulls to strengthen their stance. During the day index is likely to open on a flat note bit and is expected to trade in a range with positive bias, a sustainable buying could only emerge on the move above 17,800 levels.
