Stock market today: Mixed global cues to keep investors on the edge (MINT)

Sensex and Nifty closed in the red zone with most of the shedding happening in the last leg as Kotak Bank and ITC dragged the most, while IndusInd Bank and Bajaj Finserv climbed.

Earnings reports and global cues drove the market sentiments but continued buying from FIIs suggests that India still remains in a strong position.

PSU Bank and Realty sectors gained but FMCG and Metal index shed in today's session.

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said,"The near-term market trend will be influenced by a host of factors like the recent Q1 results, some major results expected this week and policy decisions like the Fed meeting outcome on Wednesday."

Indices continue to shed for 2nd day in a row as Sensex closes below 66,400 and Nifty below 19,700; FMCG and Metal index drag

Indian market witnessed a volatile session with Sensex and Nifty ending in losses on Monday.

Most of the market movements were triggered by earning reports; however foreign fund outflows and crude oil prices hovering above USD 80 per barrel weighed on equity markets as traders were awaiting the US Federal Reserve's monetary policy decision to be announced this week.

Sensex shed 300 pts to close at 66,384, while Nifty 50 index shed 79 points to close at 19,666. Six of the 15 broad-based Nifty sectoral indices ended in the green.

Several analysts have been pointing out that any further rally from the current peak seems unlikely as valuations were higher, and that is what seems to have been happening in the past two-odd sessions.

Kotak Mahindra Bank shed more than 3%. ITC and Tech Mahindra were other major draggers. SBI Life and IndusInd Bank jumped more than 2%.

Among sectoral indices, Pharma and PSU Bank gained the most. FMCG shed more than a per cent with Metal and Energy sector also dragging in today's session.

Stocks in Asia had a mixed session at the start of a busy week that will see a wave of central bank decisions as easing bets on policy change in Japan buoyed sentiment.

Japan's Nikkei share average rose for the first time in three days, with automakers rallying amid a weaker yen, as investors pared bets for a hawkish policy tweak from the nation's central bank this week. The Nikkei ended the day up 1.23%. Of the index's 225 components, 198 rose, while 25 fell and two were flat. The broader Topix added 0.84%.

China stocks closed lower on Monday even as measures were announced to spur private investment, while traders looked for policy signals from a Politburo meeting likely happening at the end of this week. Hong Kong shares also fell, dragged by property and tech stocks.

China's blue-chip CSI300 Index closed down 0.4%, while the Shanghai Composite Index lost 0.1%. Hong Kong's benchmark Hang Seng Index was down 2.1%.

European stocks dropped on Monday as investors braced for the busiest week of the earnings season and a series of central bank policy meetings.

British stocks fell at the open with financials leading declines, while shares of Ocado jumped after a deal to settle all litigation claims with Norwegian firm AutoStore.

Share Market Live: JM Financial recommendations on Kotak Bank and JSW Steel 

Kotak Mahindra Bank 1QFY24 Result Update | Strong quarter; compelling risk-reward for a quality franchise

Result Update BUY INR 2,205 

In 1QFY24, Kotak Mahindra Bank (Kotak) reported a significant beat on all P&L parameters (NII, PPOP and PAT) as NII grew +33% YoY to INR62.3bn, PPOP grew +78% YoY to INR49.5bn and PAT grew +67% YoY to INR34.5bn (standalone). Decline in NIMs by just 18bps QoQ to 5.57% (from elevated levels in 4Q23) despite a meaningful increase in cost of deposits which led to a strong deposit growth of 22% YoY, in our view would count as a positive outcome. While cost of deposits will inch up in coming quarters with continued focus on ActivMoney product, we believe Kotak has levers with respect to increasing share of unsecured loans (PL+credit card+microfinance) from current levels of 10.7% to mitigate the impact and manage healthy NIMs. We expect Kotak to grow loans/deposits both at 18% CAGR over FY23-25 while forecasting NII CAGR of 20% over the period. Kotak continues to invest in scaling up its digital prowess (opex +26% YoY, cost/avg assets consistently +3% for past 4 quarters) and mgmt. believes that over the medium-to-long term, the digitally agile nature of the franchise will put it meaningfully ahead of competition. Leadership change has been a key overhang for the stock (and led to meaningful valuation compression in Kotak – core bank trading at 2.4x FY25e BVPS), we believe Kotak offers best-in-class risk-adjusted margin profile, strong balance sheet and now healthy growth (Kotak has highest 2yr-CAGR in loans over FY21-23 amongst larger pvt banks). We believe Kotak now offers compelling risk-reward with clarity in leadership transition to be a key trigger and inorganic growth opportunities with complementary products/geographies could add to further upside. Maintain BUY with revised TP of INR2,205 (values bank at 2.8x FY25e P/BV).

 

JSW Steel | Higher realisation drives beat; capacity additions to drive earnings growth

Result Update BUY INR 800 

JSW Steel reported 1Q consol. EBITDA of INR70.5bn, significantly higher than JMfe of INR49.3bn. The beat was primarily driven by higher than expected realisations and significantly improved subsidiary performance. Standalone EBITDA came in at INR48.6bn, implying an EBITDA/t of INR9.9k – down INR1.1k/t QoQ on account of lower scale of operations and higher RM cost. BPSL reported an EBITDA of INR7.0bn vs INR9.5bn in 4Q while JSW coated reported an EBITDA of INR3.9bn vs INR4.3bn. Net debt stood at INR668bn up ~INR75bn QoQ primarily on account of higher working capital. Key takeaways from the call are a) coking coal cost is expected to decrease by US$45-50/t in 2QFY24 b) realisation for 2QFY24 is expected to come lower sequentially c) margins for 2QFY23 are expected to remain range bound d) Post FY25 - capacity to increase from 37mn tons to 50 mn tons through brownfield growth at Vijayanagar, Dolvi and BPSL. JSW continues to aggressively add capacity across facilities – a) Vijaynagar expansion to be completed by FY24 end b) BPSL Phase-II expansion (from 3.5mtpa to 5mtpa) is expected to be completed by FY24. Strong growth pipeline and increased focus on cost efficiency augurs well for the company. Maintain BUY.

Share Market Live: Banks write off over ₹2.09 lakh crore bad loans in FY23, ₹10.57 lakh crore written off in the last five years

According to information obtained through Right to Information (RTI) queries, banks in India wrote off bad loans amounting to more than 2.09 lakh crore during the financial year 2022-23 (FY23). This brings the total loan write-offs by the banking sector to a significant 10.57 lakh crore over the past five years, as per data provided by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to The Indian Express.

The figures show that loan write-offs by banks increased to 209,144 crore during FY23, compared to 174,966 crore in FY22 and 202,781 crore in FY21, based on the RTI data. Banks have been resorting to loan write-offs as a strategy to alleviate the burden of non-performing assets on their balance sheets.

However, despite these write-offs, the recoveries from these bad loans have been quite disappointing. The data reveals that only 30,104 crore was recovered in FY21, 33,534 crore in FY22, and 45,548 crore in FY23. (Read More)

Share Market LIVE: Geojit Financials views on today's market: The near-term market trend will be influenced by a host of factors like the recent Q1 results, some major results expected this week and policy decisions like the Fed meeting outcome on Wednesday

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: The near-term market trend will be influenced by a host of factors like the recent Q1 results, some major results expected this week and policy decisions like the Fed meeting outcome on Wednesday.

Q1 results of RIL, though a tad disappointing on top and bottom line, are good when viewed from the perspective of the growth engines of the company - Jio Infocom and Reliance Retail - which are doing well and shows promise of improving, going forward. ICICI Bank has delivered the best results in the banking universe with 40% growth in net profit and impressive loan growth. Kotak Bank, too, has done well. But since the NIMs are likely to remain under pressure, no big spurt in earnings growth can be expected, in the coming quarters. So, while these stocks will remain strong and resilient, a sustained rally appears difficult.

The Fed is likely to raise rate by 25 bp on Wednesday, but the market movement will be decided by the commentary of the Fed chief regarding future inflation and rate trends. Investors may wait and watch these events unfold.

Share Market Live: Wall Street stocks end mixed on Friday as heavyweights dip

U.S. stocks ended mixed on Friday, with gains in healthcare offsetting a dip in some of Wall Street's most valuable companies.

Nvidia, Microsoft and Meta Platforms lost ground, while the S&P 500 utilites sector gained the most.

Netflix dipped for a second straight day after the video streaming company's quarterly results this week failed to impress.

Analysts attributed Friday's choppy trading to the expiration of monthly options and the expected special rebalancing of the multi-trillion dollar Nasdaq 100 at the close of trading.

According to preliminary data, the S&P 500 gained 1.81 points, or 0.04%, to end at 4,536.68 points, while the Nasdaq Composite lost 30.32 points, or 0.22%, to 14,032.99. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 8.21 points, or 0.02%, to 35,233.39.

The Nasdaq has rallied about 34% this year, lifted by optimism over artificial intelligence, a relatively resilient U.S. economy and expectations that the Federal Reserve's aggressive rate hike cycle will end soon.

While the Fed is widely expected to raise interest rates by 25 basis points at its July 25-26 meeting, investors have mixed views on the central bank's longer-term monetary policy. (Reuters)
