Sensex Today | Share Market Updates: Indian shares gained in the final hour to end in the green on Friday despite negative global cues.

Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said the U.S. central bank is not confident that interest rates are high enough to tame inflation.

Asian shares retreated Friday after rising bond market yields once again weighed on Wall Street, ending a lull in wider swings in prices during a brief respite from market-moving data releases.

Treasury yields rose after a report suggested the U.S. job market remains remarkably solid and Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell said the Fed “will not hesitate" to raise interest rates further if it feels high inflation is not fully under control.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: India Derivatives Boom Helps Bourse’s Stock Trounce Global Peers

BSE Ltd. has emerged as the world’s best-performing exchange operator this year, and analysts are predicting more gains on expectations of its expanding derivatives business.

Shares of the Indian bourse have rallied 270% this year, trouncing global platforms such as cryptocurrency major Coinbase Global Inc. and Cboe Global Markets Inc., as well as the country’s Multi Commodity Exchange of India Ltd.

Sensex Today Live: Retail Inflation preview: India's CPI expected to be around 4.6-4.9% in October

Thanks to easing food inflation, India's October retail inflation, or consumer price index (CPI)-based inflation, is expected to come in the range of 4.6-4.9 per cent.

Sensex Today: PL Stock Report: Nazara Technologies (NAZARA IN) - Q2FY24 Result Update – Capital allocation key to re-rating - HOLD

Jinesh Joshi - Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher Pvt Ltd. views on Nazara Technologies (NAZARA IN)

Rating: HOLD | CMP: Rs820 | TP: Rs840

Q2FY24 Result Update – Capital allocation key to re-rating

Quick Pointers:

§ Post recent fund infusion, cash on books stands at Rs13.3bn (22% of market cap).

We cut our FY24E-FY26E EBITDA estimates by ~3-4%, amid persistent weakness in Kiddopia and Ad-Tech business. Despite downgrade at operating level, our FY24/25E EPS estimates have witnessed an upgrade of 14%/6% as we raise our other income assumptions and re-align our tax rate for FY24E given write back during the quarter. Nazara’s operational performance was broadly in-line with our estimate with EBITDA margin of 9.4% (PLe 8.3%) while PAT beat was driven by tax credit of Rs13mn (PLe tax outgo of Rs47mn) arising from demerging of the fantasy sports business of Halaplay into OpenPlay. Despite ongoing challenges in Ad-Tech (loss of a large client), Kiddopia (stagnant subscriber base) and Real Money Gaming (GST levy of 28% on full bet value), return of BGMI and strong traction in SportsKeeda is likely to drive Sales/EBITDA CAGR of 17%/34% over FY23-FY26E. Retain ‘HOLD’ rating on the stock with a DCF based TP of Rs840 (earlier Rs836). Post recent fund raise, Nazara has cash balance of Rs13.3bn (cash per share of Rs183 on diluted equity base) and we believe capital allocation decisions from hereon will be a key to re-rating.

Result Update BUY INR 130 

In 2QFY24, SAMIL reported consol. EBITDA margin of 8.0%, 90bps below JMFe. Lower automotive production in EU (owing to summer holidays) and US (labour strike) led to negative operating leverage and unfavourable mix. With the recovery in automotive volumes in 2H, we expect growth momentum to continue going ahead. Order book continues to grow with share of EVs forming ~22% of booked business (USD 77+bn). Acquisitions have started coming through and the company indicated of strong pipeline. Increase in debt is a temporary phenomenon owing to acqs. and increase in capex and is expected to normalise going ahead. We believe the company with its global presence, an expanding product portfolio and a wide customer base presents a multi-year growth opportunity. We expect revenue/EPS CAGR of 18%/48% over FY23-26E. We maintain BUY rating with a Sept’24 TP of INR 130 (18x FY25e EPS). Slowdown in global demand remains a key risk.

Sensex Today Live: Pre-market comment by Choice Broking: The Nifty is presently trading below the critical 19500 level, which serves as robust resistance

Mandar Bhojane, Research Analyst, Choice Broking: On November 10, the Sensex and Nifty indices are anticipated to commence trading marginally lower, as per indications from the GIFT Nifty. The expected opening reflects a potential downturn for the broader index, projecting a loss of approximately 90 points.

In the U.S. market, stocks concluded lower on Thursday, terminating the Nasdaq and S&P 500's lengthiest winning streaks in two years. This decline was attributed to escalating Treasury yields subsequent to a disappointing auction of 30-year bonds and remarks from Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. U.S. indices experienced a decline ranging from 0.6% to 0.9%, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq concluding 8 and 9-session win streaks, respectively.

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) were net sellers in stocks, index futures, and stock futures, amounting to 1712 cr, 15 cr, and 976 cr, respectively. Conversely, domestic institutional investors (DIIs) were net buyers, with a total of 1512 cr.

The Nifty is presently trading below the critical 19500 level, which serves as robust resistance. Notably, the highest Open Interest (OI) is observed at this level, while support is identified at 19300 and 19250. The market is expected to maintain a range-bound trajectory.

As for Bank Nifty, it is trading within the range of 43,900-43,550, indicating a potential sideways trend. Noteworthy is the support provided by the 20 and 200-day Exponential Moving Averages (EMA). Support levels for the Bank Nifty are identified at 43,500-43,400, while resistance is anticipated at 43,800-44,000 levels. This analysis suggests the likelihood of a consolidation phase in the Bank Nifty.

Sensex Today: Geojit Financial Services views on today's market: The lingering concern that ‘the rates may remain higher for longer’ will continue as a headwind for stock markets for some time

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The 8-day winning streak in S&P 500 was halted by a slightly hawkish statement from the Fed chief Jerome Powell that “the Fed will not hesitate to tighten policy if needed." The lingering concern that ‘the rates may remain higher for longer’ will continue as a headwind for stock markets for some time, but is unlikely to drag it down meaningfully. The Indian market texture indicates that the ‘buy on dips’ strategy will continue to work. In Samvat 2080, Financials are likely to do well supported by attractive valuations and impressive growth. Sustained FII selling in financials, which is impacting the sector, will be only temporary. For investors with a 2-year time horizon, the leading private banks and 3 or 4 PSU banks are good buys with good return potential.

The mid and small-cap rally is partly driven by retail exuberance and since the valuations in this broader market is high, investors have to exercise some caution.

Sensex Today Live | Share Market Updates: Fed Sees Risks for Banks From US Office Space, Interest Rates

The Federal Reserve said Thursday that it’s keeping close tabs on potential losses at banks stemming from commercial real estate and elevated interest rates.

The central bank laid out the areas of concern in its semiannual report on supervision, adding that it has bolstered oversight following this year’s collapse of multiple midsize lenders. Thursday’s report is just the latest to highlight how last year’s rapid rate hikes affected banks.

“The Federal Reserve is committed to taking additional steps to strengthen its supervisory efforts," the central bank said. The Fed said it’s also stepping up training for examiners.

The collapses of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank in March exposed gaps in federal oversight. Michael Barr, the Fed’s vice chair for supervision, has pledged changes. In addition to new regulations, he has said the regulator will reevaluate how it scrutinizes a bank’s management of interest-rate liquidity risks. (Bloomberg)

Sensex Today Live: India rupee will have to contend with jump in US yields, dollar

The Indian rupee on Friday will have to deal with a surge in U.S. Treasury yields and a rally on the dollar following hawkish commentary from U.S. Federal Reserve officials, including Chair Jerome Powell.

Non-deliverable forwards indicate the rupee will open at around 83.27-83.29 to the U.S. dollar compared with 83.28 in the previous session and near its 83.2950 lifetime low.

The move up in U.S. yields "will bother the rupee", but then "it never reacted to the move lower on U.S. yields and it will not react to the reversal", a forex trader said.

"At the current level, you can't expect anything to happen." (Reuters)
