Bloodbath on D-Street as Sensex, Nifty slide 2.5%; metals, banks top drags

India's benchmark equity indices slumped over 2.5% on Monday amid a sell-off in global markets. The rupee plunged 20 paise to close at an all-time low of 78.13 against the US dollar, as a lacklustre trend in domestic equities and stronger greenback overseas weighed on investor sentiment.

A global selloff intensified following a surprise US inflation print that put pressure on the Federal Reserve to step up monetary tightening. Treasury yields traded at a multi-year high.

S&P 500 futures sank 2.5% and Nasdaq 100 contracts slid 3.1%. The S&P 500 is flirting with a bear market after Friday’s shock consumer prices report ignited a more than $1 trillion selloff. The Stoxx 600 traded at its lowest level since early March.

Back home, the Sensex fell 1,456.74 points to end the day at 52,846.70, having touched an intraday low of 52,527.08. The Nifty was down 427.40 points or 2.64% at 15,774.40. About 650 shares advanced, 2759 declined, and 117 were unchanged.

All sectoral indices ended lower, with bank, capital goods, auto, IT, metal, IT, realty, PSU Bank, oil & gas indices down 2-3% each. Midcaps and smallcaps also ended deep in the red.

OVL says oil movement from Sakhalin-1 project disrupted due to sanctions: PTI

ONGC Videsh Ltd, the overseas investment arm of state-owned Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), is facing temporary disruptions in moving its share of oil from the Sakhalin-1 project in Far East Russia due to sanctions against Russia, its Managing Director Alok Gupta said.

OVL holds a 20 per cent stake in Sakhalin-1 where ExxonMobil's Russian subsidiary, Exxon Neftegaz, is the operator. Exxon has announced its exit from the project following Russia's invasion of Ukraine and has reportedly begun withdrawing expatriates from the project.

Sakhalin-1 produced around 271,000 barrels of oil per day in January and February 2022, according to the Russian Energy Ministry data, against the average of 227,000 bpd last year. Output has slipped after sanctions against Russia made it difficult to ship oil from the project.

Production slipped to just over 60,000 barrels per day between May 1 and 15, Moscow-based news agency Interfax reported.

European stocks slump to 3-month low on inflation, growth woes

European equities slid to the lowest level since early March as investors worried that surging inflation will fuel more aggressive monetary tightening, increasing risks of a recession.

The Stoxx 600 dropped 2%. S&P 500 futures fell 2.6%, with the underlying index set to near a bear market. Yields on 10-year US Treasuries were at 3.23%, the highest since November 2018, and a selloff in European government bonds also gathered pace, with the yield on German’s two-year government debt rising above 1% for the first time in more than a decade.

NCLAT rejects Amazon's plea against CCI order; directs to deposit over ₹200 cr penalty in 45 days

The National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) on Monday rejected Amazon's plea challenging the decision of fair trade regulator CCI to suspend the approval for the e-commerce major's deal with Future Coupons.

The NCLAT said "the appellant Amazon has not made full, whole, forthright and frank disclosures of relevant materials. It had furnished only limited disclosures pertaining to acquiring its strategic rights and interest in FRL (Future Retail Ltd)" and executing the commercial contract.

In December, the Competition Commission of India (CCI) had suspended the approval given by it in 2019, for Amazon's deal to acquire a 49% in Future Coupons Pvt Ltd (FCPL).

The regulator had said Amazon suppressed information while seeking clearances for the transaction back then and also slapped a fine of 202 crore on the company.

This includes a 200 crore penalty for Amazon's to notify the combination in the requisite terms and two penalties of one crore each for suppressing the actual scope and purpose of the combination.

However, NCLAT slightly modified the orders of CCI and said the penalty of one crore each imposed was "on the higher side" and reduced it to 50 lakh each.

ICICI Securities on Voltas: Negative EVA generation and decline in market share

Voltas struggled to generate positive economic value during FY22 due to a decade-low RoE. We note its EVA creation was impacted for first time in past decade. It also lost market share by 180bps in FY22 after gaining for a decade. Voltas Beko customer acceptance has increased and it reported 45% volume growth in FY22, to claim ~3% market share in home appliances segment. We model Voltas to report revenue and PAT CAGRs of 15.3% and 24.2% over FY22- FY24E, driven by: (1) high single-digit price hikes, and (2) likely market share recovery. 

At current valuations, we believe stock price upside is capped. Hence, we maintain HOLD rating with a DCF-based target price of Rs1,033 (implied P/E 44x FY24E).

Market weakness: Naveen Kulkarni, Chief Investment Officer, Axis Securities

Weakness was seen in the equity market across the globe, led by higher-than-expected inflation data in the US market, leading to a rise in the bond yields. US bond yields are now trading above 3.15% levels, indicating the aggressive rate hike expectation by the US FED in the upcoming FOMC meeting, scheduled this week. The market is now eyeing the outcome of the FED meeting, and how the central bank influences the path of interest rates trajectory to maintain growth and inflation dynamics. In the domestic market, India's VIX rose by 11% led by weaker global cues, a stronger dollar, and the expectation of Hawkish commentary by the US FED. FII behaviour is likely to be volatile this week, and a clear trend is likely to emerge only after the volatility settles at a lower level for a longer time. Investors should focus on the asset allocation and use this volatility in a calibrated manner to build long-term positions in quality companies, where the earnings visibility is high.

Non-contributing countries seek ban on export curbs on World Food Programme

Although India has been opposing such a move to restrict its policy space to ensure domestic food security, it contributes to the WFP, and in fact was the highest contributor in 2015. (Read here)

Axis Securities' Pick of the Week – Relaxo Footwears Ltd

Relaxo is the largest footwear manufacturer in India. It manufactures quality and affordable footwear comprising slippers, sandals, sports, and casual shoes. The company boasts of several popular brands including Relaxo, Sparx, Flite, and the Bahamas which stand as leaders in their respective domains. Its product mix comprises Hawai and Bahamas which account for ~25% of total sales value (60% shoes & 40% sandals) while Flite and Sparks account for ~37% of total sales each.

· Open footwear on a recovery track: The company’s Q4FY22 performance stood tepid, especially for the open footwear category (~75-80% of Relaxo’s sales). On a positive note, its closed footwear reported robust recovery on account of the opening of schools, colleges, and work offices. We believe a significant pent up demand will be released as the rural economy revives, thereby benefiting the company’s operating performance moving forward.

· Key catalyst: Normal Monsoon, Higher MSP: Normal monsoon forecast, the recent announcement of a hike in MSP, and higher remittances will be key catalysts aiding in the revival of the rural economy, which in turn, will kick-start the overall consumption cycle.

· Low pressure on profitability: Hyper-inflation in key raw material prices, coupled with subdued volume growth, has been posing pressure on profits. However, we believe the company’s margins are likely to inch up going forward as the pick-up in the volumes and market share gains from the unorganized/smaller players trigger operating leverage.

· Superior financial matrix: Relaxo has maintained healthy operating cash flow and asset turns. Moreover, its robust EBITDA Margins over the years have made it one of the most capital-efficient businesses in the industry. We believe a strong balance sheet with zero net debt and efficient working capital should help Relaxo prosper in the long run.

Recommendation: We recommend a BUY on the stock with a near-term TP of 1,100/share implying an upside of 11% from the CMP.

Derivatives view: ICICI Securities 


The Nifty gave away all its previous day’s gains and ended Friday’s session with a loss of more than 250 points. SGX is suggesting the Nifty opening below the 16000 Put base strike. If it sustains below it that will take it towards the recent low of 15750.

Bank Nifty

On Friday, Bank Nifty slipped lower on the back of selling pressure in private sector banks. According to option data, the Bank Nifty is likely to face selling pressure at higher levels as 35000 Call strike holds sizable OI, which should act as immediate resistance. Immediate support is at 34000 levels.

India, China growing markets for shunned Russian oil: Agencies 

India and other Asian nations are becoming an increasingly vital source of oil revenues for Moscow despite strong pressure from the U.S. not to increase their purchases, as the European Union and other allies cut off energy imports from Russia in line with sanctions over its war on Ukraine.

Such sales are boosting Russian export revenues at a time when Washington and allies are trying to limit financial flows supporting Moscow's war effort.

India, an oil-hungry country of 1.4 billion people, has guzzled nearly 60 million barrels of Russian oil in 2022 so far, compared with 12 million barrels in all of 2021, according to commodity data firm Kpler. Shipments to other Asian countries, like China, have also increased in recent months but to a lesser extent.

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

We have been continuously alluding to the key support of 16300 – 16260 on a closing basis. These levels are finally broken which has negated the minor upward trend that emerged during the previous week after surpassing the 16400 mark. The market is unable to show any kind of strength at higher levels; but despite this, we are still not getting convinced with the weakness. We would rather reassess the situation in the first half of this week and all eyes on crucial levels like 16000 on the lower side and 16400 on the upside.

The pragmatic strategy would be to stay light on positions and stock specific also, we are seeing a lot of whipsaws on either side. In fact, it has become a nightmare in trading stocks in the last couple of weeks. Let’s see how things pan out going ahead and we are still hopeful of some recovery in the coming days. If this has to happen, US markets need to provide that much-needed relief.

Rupee slips 36 paise to record low of 78.29 against US dollar in early trade: PTI

The rupee slipped 36 paise to its all-time low of 78.29 against the US dollar in early trade on Monday, tracking the strength of the American currency overseas as investors flocked to the safe-haven currency amid an overall risk-averse sentiment.

Forex traders said weak Asian currencies, a lacklustre trend in domestic equities and persistent foreign capital outflows weighed on investor sentiments.

On Friday, the rupee tumbled 19 paise to close at a fresh lifetime low of 77.93 against the US dollar

Asia stocks sink; US inflation, covid cases weigh on investor sentiment 

Asian stocks opened lower and bond yields surged on Monday following a fresh high in American inflation that heaped pressure on the Federal Reserve to intensify monetary tightening.

Equities shed about 2% in Japan and South Korea. US equity futures slid, with Nasdaq 100 contracts down 2% and those for the S&P 500 1.3% lower. The declines come in the wake of steep losses on Wall Street that contributed to the worst drop in global shares last week since October 2020.

In Asian deals, S&P 500 futures fell 1.3%, while Nasdaq 100 futures fell 2%. 

Japan’s Topix index was down 2%, and South Korea’s Kospi index shed 2.6%.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 2.73%, the S&P 500 lost 2.91% and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 3.52%. The three indices posted their biggest weekly declines since January, tumbling roughly 5% each.
