European shares weighed down by tech stocks on rising U.S. rate hike bets

AGS Transact IPO view: Jyoti Roy - DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel One Ltd

AGS Transact Technologies Ltd. derives majority of its revenues by providing various services to the banking sector. The company derived 60% & 15% of its revenues from the cash management & digital services in the first 5 months of FY2022. There is no comparable company in the listed space which is exclusively engaged in the portfolio of business similar to the company. However CMS Infosystems Ltd. is engaged in cash management services which accounted for 60% of AGS Transact’s revenues. At the higher end of the price band AGS Transact would be trading at P/E multiple of 38.5xFY21 EPS which is at a premium to CMS Infosystems. Moreover AGS has high client concentration with top three customers accounting for 33.6% of revenues and has reported a loss for the first five months of FY2022. Given premium valuations, high client concentration and losses in 5MFY2022 we have a NEUTRAL recommendation on the IPO.

Monday market wrap up: Sameet Chavan (Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One Ltd)

Nifty pushes beyond 18300 gradually, but stocks on a roll

Today morning, the global markets looked a bit nervous but as we approached our opening time, the SGX Nifty recovered to some extent and as a result, the week kick started the week marginally in red. Market did not take much of a time to enter the positive terrain and then remained within a slender range throughout the remaining part of the session. Although there was no real momentum in key indices, Nifty managed to reclaim the 18300 mark at the close.

Since last 3 – 4 trading sessions, the benchmark index has lost its sheen because heavyweight banking space continues to sulk a bit. But we must construe this as an index balancing because we have already seen a massive recovery and now approaching record highs when the mega event budget is around the corner. So this has applied brakes on the momentum in key indices but all this whist, if we look at the overall activity in market meticulously, there is no shortage of action in individual themes. In such times, it’s advisable not to focus on index, rather keep concentrating in stock specific moves that are likely to provide better trading opportunities. As far as levels are concerned, 18350 – 18400 are to be considered as immediate resistances; whereas on the flipside, 18200 – 18150 is to be treated as key supports now.
