  • Market closing: Indian markets closed lower after a choppy session on Tuesday. Gains in banks, financials and FMCG shares were offset by losses in metals. European stocks rose on dip buying but investors remained worried about rate hikes and the impact on growth

China’s woes, a global wave of monetary tightening and the war in Ukraine are casting a pall over the world economy. In a semi-annual report, the Fed warned of deteriorating liquidity conditions across key financial markets.

Sensex ends lower, Nifty near 16,200; metals hammered, banks, FMCG gain

Indian equity markets suffered another day of losses amid volatility on Tuesday. Losses were largely led by metal stocks, with the index down a massive 5% for the day. Tata Steel, Coal India, JSW Steel, Hindalco were among the top losers, falling 4.5-7.5%. Banks and FMCG stocks shone.

India's benchmark indexes last week registered their worst week since November, hurt by a surprise interest-rate hike by the central bank, foreign fund outflows and mixed corporate results. The pain has continued.

Elsewhere, US equity-index futures rallied with European stocks as dip buyers emerged from the ruins of Monday’s rout, even though sentiment remained fragile over concerns about inflation and economic growth.

Back home, the Sensex fell 105.82 points to end the day at 54,364.85, while Nifty was down 61.90 points at 16,240. About 848 shares advanced, 2,428 declined, and 132 were unchanged.

Tiger Global hit by $17 billion losses in tech rout- Financial Times 

New York-based Tiger Global has been hit by losses of around $17 billion during this year's technology stock selloff, marking one of the biggest dollar declines for a hedge fund in history, the Financial times reported on Tuesday.

Oil prices dropped more than 1% on Tuesday, extending the previous day's steep declines as coronavirus lockdowns in top oil importer China, a strong dollar and growing recession risks fed worries about the outlook for global demand.

Result Update – Voltas Ltd: ICICI Securities 

The company’s Q4 performance was hit by lower EMPS revenues and sharp decline in the profitability of UCP segment.

· Voltas reported a muted topline growth of ~1% YoY to 2667 crore due to de-growth in EMPS segment. UCP segment grew 10% led by price hikes

· EBITDA margin down 268 bps YoY to 9.8%, led by high raw material costs. Gross margin declined 278 bps YoY. EBIT margin of Unitary cooling products (UCP) dipped 522 bps to 10.6%

· PAT declined ~24% to 183 crore tracking lower EBITDA in Q4FY22

Key triggers for future price performance

· Structural demand owing to changing consumer lifestyle (work from home) post pandemic is likely to drive near term demand for RAC

· On a long term basis, we believe, rising income and aspirations of middle class household in India will be a key demand driver for cooling products. AC’s penetration at 7% is lowest among white goods segment

· Higher demand of energy efficient products would help drive premiumisation in the air conditioner industry.

Recommend HOLD: We model Voltas to report revenue, EBITDA and PAT CAGRs of 15.3%, 14% and 24.2%, respectively, over FY22-24E and RoE to move to 12.5% in FY24 from 9.7% in FY22. While we remain positive on the company due to strong brand equity of Voltas and established distribution network, we believe upside is capped at current valuations (45x of FY24E EPS). We assign HOLD rating to the stock with DCF-based target price of Rs1,033 (implied P/E of 44x of FY24E).

Malaysia palm oil production, exports to rise 30% by end-2022: Reuters 

Malaysia's production and exports of palm oil are expected to rise 30% by the end of this year, amid increased demand after neighbouring Indonesia banned exports and following the re-entry of plantation workers from abroad, a minister said.

Malaysia, the world's second-largest palm oil producer after Indonesia, stands to benefit from a global edible oil shortage exacerbated by Jakarta's export ban last month, but has struggled with a prolonged labour crunch after coronavirus border curbs halted the entry of migrant workers for its plantations.

Russia gas flow stop could erase post-COVID recovery across EBRD region - Reuters

An abrupt halt of Russian gas exports could see economies in emerging Europe, central Asia and north Africa slide back to pre-pandemic GDP levels, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development warned on Tuesday.

Many countries in the EBRD's region of operation, which covers some 40 economies stretching from Mongolia to Slovenia and Tunisia, depend on Russian gas and a sudden ceasing of supplies would lower output per capita by 2.3% this year and 2% in 2023, according to the lender's latest report.

India's inflation likely accelerated to an 18-month high in April: Reuters poll

India's retail inflation likely surged to an 18-month high in April, largely driven by rising fuel and food prices and staying well above the Reserve Bank of India's upper tolerance limit for a fourth consecutive month, a Reuters poll found.

Food inflation, which accounts for nearly half the consumer price index (CPI) basket, reached a multi-month high in March and is expected to remain elevated due to higher vegetable and cooking oil prices globally.

These factors likely pushed inflation in Asia's third-largest economy to 7.5% on an annual basis in April, according to a May 5-9 Reuters poll of 45 economists, from 6.95% in March.

If realised, that would be the highest inflation rate since October 2020 and well above the RBI's upper 6% limit.

Forecasts for the data, due to be released on 12 May, ranged between 7.0% and 7.85%.

For Nifty, 16100-16000 to be crucial supports: Osho Krishan, Sr. Analyst - Technical & Derivative Research, Angel One

The volatility index has gained traction in the past couple of trading sessions, raising concerns for the participants. Simultaneously, the relentless selling spree in the market has certainly showcased the tightening of the bearish grip. On technical levels, the 78.60% of the Fibonacci retracement placed around the 16190 odd level is expected to be an intermediate cushion to any fall, followed by the psychological mark of 16000. While on the higher end, a decisive closure above the unfilled gap of 16480-16650 could only direct some assurance to the bulls.

Going forward, till the global bourses remain under pressure, our market is likely to remain tentative with huge whipsaw movements. Also, till the upside gap remains unfilled, we would advocate avoiding aggressive bets and advise having a close tab on the mentioned levels with global developments.

Asian shares slump on investor concern about global growth

Stocks slid and bonds rallied Tuesday as concerns about a darkening economic outlook reverberated around global markets.

An Asia-Pacific equity gauge fell to the lowest since July 2020 amid drops in Japan, China and Hong Kong, where technology shares slumped. S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 futures wavered after U.S. stocks hit a 13 month-low.

Oil fell toward $100 a barrel on economic concerns and the European Union’s move to soften some proposed sanctions on Russian oil over the Ukraine war.

A dollar gauge is at the highest level since 2020, while China’s economic slowdown amid Covid lockdowns is putting pressure on the yuan.

S&P 500 futures fell 0.2%, Nasdaq 100 futures fell 0.1%, and Euro Stoxx 50 futures lost 0.7%.

Japan’s Topix index shed 1.8%, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 Index dropped 2.2%, South Korea’s Kospi index declined 1.8%, China’s Shanghai Composite index fell 1.2%, and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng index was 2.9% lower.
