Global Inflows Help Indian Stocks Become EM Asia’s Top Gainers

Mint Mark to Market: Rising competition may hit Berger, Indigo Indigo harder than peers

India's paints industry has recently seen a spike in competition as new entrants strive to claim their piece of the market, potentially creating price pressures that could impact incumbent profitability.

MRG Capital prediction for today's market: Market to be determined by stock-specific moves and see some volatility at index level within a range

Manu Rishi Guptha, Founder of MRG Capital says: Positive global markets should have a positive impact on Indian markets in the opening trade but commodity prices which are inching up after steep falls might put a lid on market gains. Nifty index can outperform Bank Nifty again today and has support at 18450. Reliance and metal stocks could offer support to the markets today. Decent auto sales numbers particularly from 2-wheelers will help auto stocks like Hero Motors push higher. FMCG companies like HUL, Marico, Nestle all trading at their 52-week highs on improved monsoon forecasts will likely continue their positive momentum. Real estate is one more sector which has gained momentum and companies like Ashiana Housing which operate in smaller cities are gaining more investor attention and likely to trade positively today as well. This positive real estate sentiment is rubbing off on select consumer discretionary companies like Havells and Polycab which cater to home electric wiring demand. Cement companies on the other hand seem to have had their run up and might consolidate today as higher Crude will play spoil sport. Overall, like the past many days today too market is determined by stock-specific moves and see some volatility at index level within a range; 18450-18650 for Nifty and 43700-44200 for Bank Nifty.

The VIX ( Volatility Index ) is at historical lows in all global markets thereby depicting an “all is well – like never before" sentiment and that should be one reason to be cautious while being bullish. Bad news appears when no one is expecting it ever.

Coal India OFS: Share price dips on last day of subscription

Coal India shares extended their losing steak for a fifth straight session during early morning deals on Friday. Coal India share price today opened lower and went on to hit an intraday low of 228.10 apiece levels on NSE.

The PSU stock has been falling ever since the Government of India (GoI) announced to offload its 3 per cent stake in Coal India Ltd. The Coal India OFS opened for subscription on 1st June 2023 and it is going to end on 2nd June 2023 i.e. today. However, if we look at the Coal India share price history, the stock has been falling since May 30, 2023.

According to stock market experts, Coal India shares are falling because of its OFS, which has been offered at 225 apiece. As current market price of the Coal India shares was quite high, Coal India shareholders started offloading their position fearing market adjustment after the announcement of Coal India OFS price. So, it is more a tactical sell off as fundamentals of the company are still strong. They advised positional investors to apply for the Coal India OFS and at the same time, they advised them to buy Coal India shares in 220 to 230 per share range for short term target of 260.

LKP Securities: Auto-Roundup May 2023: 2Ws and PVs doing well, CVs weaken on regulatory interventions

We witnessed a stronger May as compared to April for 2Ws and PVs. PVs witnessed a faster easing of chip shortage issue in May, which we expect to witness going forward too, while 2Ws gained strength on low base of last year, marriage season, positive sentiments and both ICE and EV launches. Going forward, the impact of expected El Nino needs to be seen on the rural centric segments. CVs are witnessing a temporary dip on the back of BS VI phase-2 implementation, while underlying strength would keep the going strong. Tractor industry growth needs to be monitored as well on expected El Nino setting up in the coming monsoon.

We remain positive on the sector. However, our choice is in the following order –PVs, 2Ws and CVs. Stocks specifically, within the 2Ws, we like Bajaj Auto as we expect bounce back of exports 3-4 months down the line as $ scenario may improve in Africa. Also the EV strength gaining from Chetak and upcoming launch of e-3W can be additional positives. Domestically on the motorcycles side as well the company is posting very strong numbers. TVS too looks promising with its dominance in EV scooters and solid performance by its star performers like NTorq, Jupiter, Apache, Raider and the recently launched Ronin. While on the PV side, we like M&M because of its thrust on rural markets through its leadership in tractors business, prudent capital allocation and a robust growth strategy in UVs, EVs and CVs. We also like MSIL on the PV side because of its wide portfolio of vehicles and inroads into the SUV industry. We like Ashok Leyland within CVs as it has a diversified revenue base deriving from LCVs, Defence, MHCVs, exports and spares. Every dip in the stocks mentioned above, shall provide good opportunities for investors to enter into them from medium to long term perspective.

Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: Expect lots of stock specific action even within range-bound movement of the Nifty

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: A dominant economic trend which has implications for investment is India’s improving economic fundamentals in a challenging global environment. Apart from the better-than-expected FY23 GDP growth rate, high-frequency indicators like GST collections, manufacturing PMI, auto sales in May and impressive credit growth indicate a robust and steadily improving economy. FY24 GDP growth is likely to be revised up to around 6.5 % and consequently, corporate earnings for FY24 also will be revised up. This scenario, in the context of inflation (4.7% in April) coming within RBI’s tolerance limit and peaking of interest rates, augurs well for equity markets in H2 of CY2023. An important trend in the market is the outperformance of the broader market. Expect lots of stock-specific action even within the range-bound movement of the Nifty.

Wall Street rises on Thursday with hopes for pause to rate hikes and debt celing deal

Wall Street rose Thursday with hopes that the Federal Reserve may soon take it easier on its hikes to interest rates.

The S&P 500 rallied 1% after a suite of reports painted a picture of a split U.S. economy. The job market remains solid, but manufacturing is weakening and retailers are seeing shoppers under pressure. Altogether, investors saw the data pushing the Fed toward not hiking rates at its meeting in two weeks, which would be the first time that's happened in more than a year.

The Nasdaq composite led the market with a 1.3% jump. It's full of technology companies and other high-growth stocks that tend to benefit most from lower rates. The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 153 points, or 0.5%.

One positive for the market came late Wednesday when the House of Representatives approved a deal to prevent a possibly catastrophic default on the U.S. government’s debt. But that was what Wall Street expected, and only a slip-up for the deal before it gets signed by President Joe Biden would likely cause big waves for stocks.

Investors are more concerned about whether the economy will fall into a recession before inflation recedes enough to convince the Federal Reserve to take it easier on interest rates.

Reports on Thursday gave a clouded view. One said that fewer workers applied for unemployment benefits last week than expected, while another suggested employers increased their payrolls last month by more than forecast. (AP)
