Can investing in holding company stocks fetch bumper returns?

For Indian investors, taking exposure in holding company stocks could be a relatively new concept given that there are not many such stocks among the plethora of companies listed on Indian exchanges.

A holding company is a business structure that has been registered with the intent of controlling other group companies. Since the main purpose of a holding company is to make investments in other group entities, it usually does not produce goods or services itself.

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

US markets had a massive volatility during the previous night and towards the end they took a nosedive from the day high. As a result of this, yesterday early morning the SGX Nifty was first indicating a massive gap down. But as we came closer to our opening point, the global picture changed. Our markets started the day on a positive note; courtesy to some relief in the global peers. In fact as the day progressed, the buying momentum kept accelerating to conclude the weekly expiry precisely at 17400 by adding nearly 1.40% to the previous close.

The kind of price development we had in the previous session, the possibility of some recovery was on cards. But honestly speaking, Nifty has clearly over surpassed our expectations after extending the relief move beyond 17350. Now looking at the individual stocks, we may see Nifty heading towards 17500 – 17600; but we reiterate, markets are not completely out of the woods yet and hence, it’s advisable to stay light after nearing this zone. On the flipside, 17300 – 17200 are to be seen as intraday supports.

For today’s session, if Nifty continues with the bounce back mode, one can look to identify potential candidates that are trading at key supports and are likely to provide good buying opportunity. But we reiterate, our positional view remains bearish and hence, it’s advisable to book intraday profits if Nifty enters the above mentioned resistance zone.

Markets opening view: Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

The index is currently trading within its resistance zone of 17400-17500. It would need to close above this level for a positive short term trend to emerge. Once that happens we could expect higher levels of 17800-18000. Until that does not happen, the bias continues to remain on the sell side and traders should be watchful and cautious. If the market turns from here and breaks 17100, we would revisit the recent lows.

Asia stocks mixed

Asian stocks were mixed Friday as traders evaluated risks from the omicron virus strain, while Treasury yields pared a climb spurred by Federal Reserve comments about a quicker reduction in stimulus.

Equities fluctuated in Japan, fell in South Korea and rose in Australia. China and Hong Kong face headwinds: Chinese shares traded in the U.S. slid over the risk of delisting for flouting disclosure rules, while developer Kaisa Group Holdings Ltd. failed to win approval for a debt swap, highlighting property-sector woes.

U.S. futures retreated, continuing a choppy week for investors. Dip buyers returning to U.S. stocks sensitive to the economic outlook fueled the S&P 500’s best climb since October.

Treasury yields dipped, retracing some of their jump in the U.S. on Thursday. Fed officials laid out the case for a faster removal of policy support amid high inflation. The dollar was steady. Crude was higher after OPEC+ proceeded with an output hike but left room for quick adjustments.

S&P 500 futures slid 0.3% as of 9:13 a.m. in Tokyo. The S&P 500 rose 1.4%
