European stocks extend rebound ahead of U.S. inflation data

European shares rose on Wednesday, extending a rebound from two-month lows hit earlier this week, as investors awaited U.S. consumer price data for cues on whether inflation was peaking.

India lets coal mines hike output without feedback: Reuters 

India's environment ministry has allowed coal mines with clearances to increase output by 40% to step up production by up to 50% without seeking feedback from locals, it said in a memo reviewed by Reuters.

The decision was taken after a request from the coal ministry which pointed to "huge pressure on domestic coal supply in the country," the ministry said in a memo dated May 7, adding that the "special dispensation" will be valid for six months.

India is also planning to reopen more than 100 coal mines previously considered financially unsustainable, as the worst power crisis in over six years driven by a scorching heatwave forces the world's third-biggest greenhouse gas emitter to double down on the fuel after months of low consumption.

Cipla - Another quarter of strong India and US growth: Param Desai - Senior Research Analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher

Cipla’s Q4FY22 performance was broad based with strong show in domestic formulation and US sales. We continue to remain positive on CIPLA’s growth across key segments including India and US given 1) strong traction in respiratory and other portfolio, 2) Ex-COVID, IPM to potentially grow +8-10% going forward with Cipla likely outpacing the market and 3) meaningful delta in US revs expected from FY23, backed by potential key launches. We expect 15% EPS CAGR over FY22-24E from base business (ex Revlimid) given resilient earnings, improving visibility from US and strong free cash flow generation. Our FY23/24E estimates stands reduced by 5%/2%. Maintain ‘Buy’ rating with TP of Rs1085/share based on 24x FY24E EPS plus Rs20/share for Revlimid.

Ajanta Pharma's US approvals can drive rerating; BUY stays: Yes Securities 

Ajanta Pharma guided to 75% gross margin in FY23 and margin similar to FY22. Management unveiled enhanced capex of Rs2bn coupled with investments in promotion, product registration and R&D. Hence, current fiscal is likely to witness EBIDTA growth at best matching revenue growth. With significant R&D for India/emerging markets, expected relief in US price erosion, reckon gross margin have bottomed out aided by price increase in domestic business in the non NLEM portfolio. Guidance for increased investments in opex leads to ~200bps & 9% cut in FY24 margin & EPS estimates respectively. 

Reduced FY24 estimate lead to corresponding cut in TP to Rs2,350 though BUY stays based on unchanged 26x PE. Key trigger would be a successful FDA inspection which would open up approval to several important products.

India Inc wants AI, Robotics but campuses lack those skills

India Inc wants students with prowess in robotic process automation (RPA), machine learning(ML), and artificial intelligence (AI), but campuses lack these skills at the time of demand.

"This demand-supply mismatch is because it takes one year after the spike in demand for a certain skill to get incorporated into the curriculum. Since the demand for skills tends to taper after three years, it leads to both, talent and employers always on the lookout for the right fit," stated Deloitte’s second annual Campus Workforce Trends Survey.

The study shared exclusively with Mint had data taken from 150+ organisations across industries and 250+ campuses across multiple industries.

Nifty technicals: Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One

At present, the index placement on the daily chart depicts the lost traction due to across-board weakness in domestic and global markets. As far as levels are concerned, the Nifty is currently placed near the 78.60% of Fibonacci retracement, while any further sell-off could drag it towards the psychological mark of 16000 in the near future. As we allude to our previous commentary, the unfilled gap of 16480-16650 is the sturdy wall for the bulls. Hence, looking at the technical setup, the market is likely to trade in the mentioned range until a breakout on either side is seen in a decisive manner.

Some traction was seen in the midcaps and selective banking counters that kept the traders active throughout the day. Going forward, apart from the slender range-bound movement in the indices, many stock-specific adjustments are likely to continue. Hence, traders are advised to have a stock-centric approach in such a market scenario, and any aggressive bets should be avoided.

Asian Paints' margins unlike to shine anytime soon 

Input cost inflation continued to played a spoilsport for Asian Paints Ltd in the March quarter of fiscal 2022, delaying the much-awaited recovery in margin. Prices hikes and severe cost cutting measures aided a sequential improvement in gross and operating margins, respectively, in Q4FY22, but the near-term outlook for these parameters is not encouraging.

In Q4FY22, consolidated gross margin at 38.7%, improved 195 basis points (bps) sequentially, but contracted 448bps year-on-year.

China's factory inflation eases to slowest in a year: Reuters 

China's producer prices rose at the slowest pace in a year in April, despite the surge in global commodity costs, leaving room for more stimulus to shore up the flagging economy, which faces pressure from heavy COVID-19 curbs.

The producer price index (PPI) rose 8.0% year-on-year, the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) said in a statement on Wednesday, following an 8.3% rise in March but faster than the 7.7% growth tipped by a Reuters poll.

The consumer price index (CPI) gained 2.1% from a year earlier, the fastest pace in five months, speeding up from March's 1.5% growth and beating expectations for a 1.8% rise.

SGX Nifty lower, Asian stocks steady; traders weigh inflation data

Asian stocks traded mixed but largely steady on Wednesday and US equity futures rose as investors weighed Chinese inflation data for clues on whether the price pressures sapping the global economy are peaking.

Shares climbed in China and Hong Kong and were mixed in Japan. A Wall Street advance Tuesday brought some respite from this year’s equity rout, which has been fueled by fears of an economic downturn as borrowing costs jump.

Oil fluctuated around $100 a barrel after shedding about 8% this week. Growth concerns driven by China’s Covid lockdowns are buffeting crude.

S&P 500 futures rose 0.2% and the Nasdaq 100 futures rose 0.4%.

Japan’s Topix index fell 0.3%, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 index fell 0.3%, South Korea’s Kospi index fell 0.2%, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index added 0.5%, and China’s Shanghai Composite Index increased 0.8%.

Overnight, Wall Street stocks closed higher as investors waited for inflation data and worried about the prospects of slowing economic growth and the impact of policy tightening.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 84.96 points, or 0.26%, to 32,160.74, the S&P 500 gained 9.81 points, or 0.25%, to 4,001.05 and the Nasdaq Composite added 114.42 points, or 0.98%, to 11,737.67.
