Stock Market Live Updates 26 February 2024: Sensex, Nifty eye global trends, foreign fund movement amidst derivatives expiry

Feb 26, 2024

Updated – February 26, 2024 at 12:18 PM.

Sensex, Nifty, Share Prices LIVE: Indian benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, are trading weak on Monday amidst mixed global cues. With global markets hitting new highs, analysts are cautious about valuations. The expiry of monthly derivatives contracts on Thursday is expected to bring volatility to individual stocks. At 11.30 a.m., the BSE Sensex dropped 300.45 points to 72,842.35, while the NSE Nifty fell 81 points to 22,131.70. All sectoral indices are in the red, with Nifty IT falling by 1.16% to 37,604.50, and Nifty Realty declining by 1.03% to 909.25. Analysts advise closely monitoring global indices, particularly the US, for cues. Nifty has been consolidating for over a month, with a potential breakout or breakdown. Economic indicators such as GDP figures, initial jobless claims in the US, domestic Q3 GDP data, and monthly auto sales will be under scrutiny. Despite rising US bond yields, FPI equity outflows have slowed, indicating a shift in market dynamics.

    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex and Nifty open lower amidst mixed global cues

    Indian benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, opened weak on Monday amid mixed global cues. With global markets hitting new peaks with every passing day, analysts turned cautious on the valuation front. Individual stocks may face volatility due to the expiry of monthly derivatives contracts this Thursday, analysts said. 

    In early trade, the 30-share BSE Sensex dropped 234.27 points to 72,908.52. The NSE Nifty fell 62.45 points to 22,150.25.

    Ajit Mishra, SVP – Technical Research, Religare Broking Ltd, said: “We expect volatility to remain high due to the scheduled expiry of February month derivatives contracts.”

    Besides, he said that participants should keep a close watch on the performance of the global indices, especially the US, for cues.

    Sheersham Gupta, Director and Senior Technical Analyst at Rupeezy said: “Nifty has been in a consolidation zone for over one month, and we may soon see a breakout or breakdown with the former more likely. However, for any significant rally, the Nifty must give a decisive breakout above 22,250. The range of 22,100 – 22,130 is now the demand zone, and a slide below this range can push Nifty back towards 22,000 levels.

    Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart Ltd, said: “As we approach the February month Futures and Options (F&O) expiry alongside the MSCI rebalancing scheduled for Thursday, we anticipate heightened volatility. Several macroeconomic indicators from both domestic and global fronts will play crucial roles.”

    GDP numbers and initial jobless claims will impact bond yields in the US. Moreover, our own Q3 GDP figures slated for release on February 29th and monthly auto sales data on March 1st will be closely watched.

    Arvinder Singh Nanda, Senior Vice President of Master Capital Services Ltd, said: Certain Tailwinds for the upcoming quarter are improved global trade and investments, sustained manufacturing profitability, underlying service resilience, surge in capex in the budget, and increased household demand.

    He added that possible headwinds for corporate are challenges related to the availability of raw materials and escalating prices, soft demand, shortage of skilled labour, increased power costs, market volatility, and geopolitical risk.

    According to VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, an interesting feature of the recent FPI trend is the decline in FPI equity outflows despite the rising bond yields in the US. “Normally, when the US 10-year yield rises above 4.15%, the FPIs sell heavily. But this is not happening now. Since the DIIs, HNIs, and retail investors are the dominant players now, and their sustained buying is pushing the market to newer records, FPIs have taken a backseat, he added.

    From February through 23rd, FPIs had net sold equity only for ₹423 crore, sharply down from the January level.

    According to Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities, “Today, the market may open with a cautious stance, considering the recent volatility and mixed global cues. The Nifty might open flat to slightly lower, around the 22125-22075 range. On the technical front, the Nifty has shown resilience and is expected to continue its bullish trend as long as it trades above 22000/72500. If it breaks above 22300, it could reach 22500 or 22600 levels. For Bank Nifty, support is seen around 46300 and 46000, with resistance at 47100 and 47400. Buying on dips could be a strategy, with a stop loss at 46000 on a closing basis for Bank Nifty. However, it’s essential to monitor the market closely for any changes in trend or sentiment.”

    Commodities Market Live Today: Crude oil futures dip as markets await key inflation data

    Stock Market Live Today: Market set for cautious open, Nifty may hover around 22125-22075 range, says Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities

    In the previous week, the benchmark indices witnessed a volatile trading session, with Nifty closing nearly 0.70 per cent lower after a roller coaster of activity, while Sensex was up 715 points. Among sectors, the Realty index outperformed, rising nearly 4 per cent, while the IT index declined over 1 per cent. Technically, after a short-term correction, the market took support near 21875/72080 and reversed sharply, after the reversal the market bounced back sharply. On the daily and weekly charts, the index has formed a series of higher highs and higher lows, supporting the uptrend from the current levels.

    Our view is that, as long as the index is trading above 22000/72500, the bullish trend is likely to continue. Above that the market can go up to 22400-22500/73700-74000. On the other hand, sentiment may change below 22000/72500. Below 22000/72500, the market may retest 21875/72080 levels. 

    For Bank Nifty traders, 46300 and 46000 would be the support zone. Buying is advisable if it corrects to the same. On the higher side, 47100 and 47400 would be the biggest hurdle zone. The strategy should be to buy on dips with a stop loss at 46000 on a closing basis.

    The strategy should be to buy Nifty between 22125 and 22075. Keep a stop loss below 22000. In case the Nifty crosses and closes above the level of 22300 then it could jump to 22500 or 22600 levels. — Shrikant Chouhan, Head Equity Research, Kotak Securities

    (LT IN, Mkt Cap USD56.1b, CMP INR3388, TP INR4200, 24% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    Our recent interactions with the management of Larsen and Toubro (LT) make us believe that recent concerns related to its performance are transient, such as 1) low YoY growth in domestic inflows in 9MFY24 was due to a high base of last year, particularly in domestic hydrocarbon; 2) lower-than-expected margins were attributed to legacy projects, which are now closer to completion in the next couple of quarters; and 3) high share of international projects, particularly in Saudi Arabia, where the addressable market is continuously growing. The positive factors that will drive growth ahead, in our view, are: 1) the ramp-up of domestic inflows after elections, 2) the completion of low-margin legacy projects in next couple of quarters, 3) the constant reduction in working capital and the resultant RoCE improvement, and 4) low working capital in international projects despite being fixed-price projects. We maintain our estimates and SoTP-based TP of INR4,200, valuing the core business at 28x Mar’26E EPS. Maintain Buy.

    Stock Market Live Today: FINANCIALS: PSBs: Sustained profitability to drive stock performance

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    Re-rating has been sharp but valuations still reasonable; Maintain OW

    – We resumed coverage on all six PSU Banks in early 2021, and followed this up with upgrading BOB at INR81 in Aug-21, after being NEUTRAL for four years. We have since published two PSU bank sector notes; 1. PSBs: The Homecoming of RoA in Jan-23 and followed this with a second report titled 2. PSBs: Well poised for Re-rating 2.0 in Dec’23.

    – While PSU Banks have delivered a significant outperformance over the past three years and the sector has seen a significant re-rating, the stock valuations still look reasonable in context to business growth and profitability (~18-19% RoE over FY24-26E).

    – The combined profitability of six PSBs under our coverage will surpass ~INR1t in FY24E. We estimate aggregate earnings of our PSB coverage to register a CAGR of 21% over FY24-26E (boosted by PNB & SBI), thereby reaching INR1.7t by FY26E.

    – We believe that while NIMs may remain range-bound with a slight downward bias, the improvement in opex ratios, scope for further credit cost reduction (barring SBI), and a healthy treasury performance will enable the sector RoA to reach ~1.2% by FY26E.

    – Considering PSBs’ valuation history, their trading multiples may look constrained now; however, the quality of earnings, growth outlook, and broader re-rating in Public Sector enterprises will enable steady performance for the sector.

    – Several PSBs have raised capital from the market, which should aid business growth, particularly as the capex cycle revives post general elections. We believe that sustained and consistent performance on return ratios and a conducive macro-environment can drive further re-rating of the sector.

    – We maintain our OW stance on the sector and roll forward our PTs to FY26. Top picks: SBIN & UNBK.

    Stock Market Live Today: CareEdge – Recovery rate reduces for Q3FY24, while timelines continue to rise

    The Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code (IBC) seems to be incentivising debtors to settle their defaults even before the cases are admitted under the code with over 27,500 applications for initiation of CIRPs with an underlying default of Rs 9.74 lakh crore were withdrawn before their admission. Another measure of the effectiveness of the code is the ratio of resolution to liquidation. With several initiatives to improve outcomes, the ratio has improved from 0.21 in FY18 to 0.64 in Q3FY24.

    The average time taken for resolution or liquidation continues to increase for operational creditors (OCs) and financial creditors (FCs) during the December quarter. Meanwhile, the overall recovery rate till Q3FY24 was 31.86% implying a haircut of approximately 68%. The cumulative recovery rate has been on a downtrend, decreasing from 43% in Q1FY20 and 32.9% in Q4FY22 as larger resolutions have already been executed and a significant number of liquidated cases were either BIFR cases and/or defunct with high-resolution time.

    After slowing in the pandemic period of FY21 and FY22, the number of insolvency cases referred has increased by around 19% y-o-y in Q2FY24. However, despite the increase, the number of cases admitted to the insolvency process continued to be lower compared to earlier quarters in FY20. The distribution of cases across sectors remains broadly similar, compared to earlier periods given the extended resolution timelines.

    Meanwhile, the number of ongoing CIRPs has declined on a y-o-y as well as sequential basis indicating that cases have been disposed at a faster pace compared to their admission. Furthermore, manufacturing too accounts for the largest number of cases, albeit its share has steadily reduced

    Stock Market Live Today: India Equity Strategy: Quarterly update by HDFC Securities

    Input cost benefits drive earnings growth; revenue contribution muted Q3FY24 earnings season saw an overall in-line performance, with wide divergences across sectors and companies. Aggregate revenue/PAT grew by 5%/20% YoY and 4%/-4% QoQ across the HSIE coverage (~224 stocks), with their four-year CAGRs at 13%/18%. There was similar participation by large and midcap categories towards incremental earnings growth as large-cap grew by 20% YoY and midcap grew by 21% YoY. This is in contrast to Q2FY24 when large-cap had dominated earnings.

    Further, 77% of incremental YoY earnings growth came from only three sectors—energy (33%), auto (24%) and metals (20%)—reflecting heavy lifting by these sectors. Our coverage universe saw strong YoY earnings growth in auto, lending financials (ex-SBI), industrials, energy, cement, pharma, capital markets, and metal 

    sectors. On the other hand, staples, discretionary, IT, and power sectors disappointed. 

    Key stocks contributing to the YoY earnings growth (61% of the total) are Tata Motors, ICICI Bank, IOCL, GAIL, Tata Steel, and JSW Steel. The benefits of softer input costs continued in this quarter as well. We believe support of favourable commodity costs is largely over and FY25 earning growth must be volume-led.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Outlook: SBICAPS on the Power Sector: Transitions in the energy climate

    In FY24, energy supply and power demand have experienced remarkable growth, expanding by 8.5% y/y and 11.4% y/y respectively during the first 10 months of the fiscal year. These figures significantly exceed long-term trends observed over the past decade and past three years. If this robust trajectory persists, it could potentially surpass current medium-term estimates. The upsurge in demand can be attributed to various factors, including the overall rise in electricity consumption per capita, expanded electrification efforts, weather volatility, and heightened industrial activity. Additionally, emerging drivers such as green hydrogen and electric vehicles are anticipated to further augment energy demand

    Stock Market Live Today: Elara Securities: China funds outperform India, US Small Cap inflows surge

    Elara securities India- Global Liquidity Tracker: China fund’s outperformance over India sharpest since Mar’23. US smallcap inflows expand to 20-month high

    Overall global liquidity situation continues to remain benign with most markets witnessing strong domestic flows. Countries where both domestic and foreign inflows are strong include- US, Japan and India. On the other hand, China is witnessing strong domestic inflows, but foreign flows are still weak.

    · Over the past month, the pace of inflows by domestic investors into Chinese equity is strongest since 2015.

    · Finally, China funds have started showing strong outperformance over India funds. Similar outperformance was seen in May’22 after which we saw a round chasing into this trade. Likewise, the 2nd big leg was from Nov’22 to Feb’23 (O/P of 40%).

    · With the strong domestic flows and beginning of outperformance, will be key to see if foreign flows start shifting there. No signs of this trade as of now. China saw another $268mn outflows from Foreign funds. On the other hand, domestic inflows of another $2.9bn this week.

    · US funds witness another $12.1bn inflows this week. US Smallcap flows at 20-month high of $5bn. US smallcap flows are showing strong revival since Nov’23. Inflows into Japan funds for 6th week in row totalling $4.7bn. Out of this, $2.1bn were from Foreign funds. 

    · 49th straight week of inflows into India dedicated funds. $712mn inflows this week after $766mn in previous week. Large cap funds continued to see biggest portion of this flows ($631mn).

    · Some revival also seen in India Small cap funds where a total $280mn have come in the past 9-months. India flows continue to be strongest from US investors ($215mn) followed by Ireland ($177mn) & Japan ($124mn) investors.

    · Global Junk bond flows remain strong with inflows in 16 out of 17 weeks. US Junk bond spread over US 10-year continues to drop sharply & currently at 3.5%, lowest since Apr’22.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Outlook: eCommerce firms target non-metros: Elara Securities

    Amazon is set to introduce a new vertical, Amazon Bazaar, which features affordable, and non-branded fashion & lifestyle products, as per a news report by the Economic Times on 21 February. This strategic move aims to attract a value-conscious customer base in Tier II & III markets in India amid a slowdown in demand for mass market products and slow user acquisition. Amazon Bazaar is actively enrolling sellers, encouraging them to list non-branded products, such as apparel, watches, shoes, jewelry, and luggage priced below INR 600. To incentivize participation, Amazon is proposing a zero-referral fee for merchants, particularly crucial for products with a low average selling price. This initiative mirrors successful ventures, such as Meesho and Flipkart’s Shopsy, while Reliance also is developing, Ajio Street, its low-priced products platform.

    The eCommerce market in India has seen a significant shift recently with user growth converging in the past few years. User growth has hit a plateau as metro and urban markets have reached a fair penetration level. During the recent festival season, online retailers saw huge sales growth as well as user acquisitions in Tier II & III markets, due to :1) increased internet penetration, 2) changing consumer behavior, 3) growth of local marketplaces, and 4) better supply chain & fulfillment network. We expect revenue growth of eCommerce platforms in metros and Tier I cities to be frequency- and average order value (AOV)-led, given: 1) rising income levels, and 2) higher purchasing power whereas growth in Tier II & III markets is expected to be new user-led. We expect premium online eCommerce to bolster revenue growth and profitability of eCommerce firms as they feature better margin products and may drive higher ad revenue for eCommerce brands.

    Stock Market Live Today: Sectoral Outlook: Information Technology: In-line performance; awaiting growth recovery

    Emkay Global Research

    Q3FY24 operating performance for IT companies broadly met consensus/our low expectations. Revenue growth moderation trend on YoY basis continued in Q3. Growth was impacted by continuous weak discretionary spending, further accentuated by higher furloughs. On the demand front, while most companies highlighted the ‘status quo’, select companies pointed to the visibility of green shoots in select domains, which can aid in growth acceleration in FY25. Deal wins moderated slightly on a high base from the last couple of quarters. Cost optimization and vendor consolidation continued to be key drivers for the deal wins. In the absence of revenue uptick, companies continued to drive higher utilization, optimize subcontracting costs and other discretionary costs to drive margins recovery. Headcount declined for most companies, similar to last quarter, as demand remained muted. Going ahead, macro stability and recovery in discretionary spending remains key for revenue acceleration. We are building uptick in discretionary spending and abating the impact of spending normalization in FY25. Prolonged delay in recovery of discretionary spending can pose risk to consensus/our estimates. Our pecking order is INFO, HCLT, TECHM, LTIM, TCS, and WPRO, among Tier-1 companies, and CYL and Zomato in mid-sized companies.

    Stock Market Live Today: India Household Consumption Survey: Encouraging rural consumption dynamics

    Emkay Global Research

    The results of the Household Consumption Expenditure Survey (HCES) for 2022-23 show that rural households have experienced improvement at a higher rate than urban ones since the last survey (2011-12). The difference between rural and urban Monthly Per Capita Consumption Expenditure (MPCE) has narrowed substantially over the years, implying successful government policies for improving rural incomes, while this is even more pronounced at the lower levels of the pyramid. Conversely, the gap is bigger at the top, reflecting an increase in inequality at higher income levels. Encouragingly, the share of food expenditure is lower across sections, while spending on proteins has improved, with rural even higher than urban! Thus, this should lead to the new CPI index having lower weights for food and higher for core, although it is still some time away.

    Stock Market Live Today: Today’s Pick: February 26, 2024

    Here’s an interesting stock idea. The recommendation we have for you today is CAMS

  • February 26, 2024 06:55

    Stock to buy today: CAMS (₹3,112.50): BUY

    The outlook for Computer Age Management Services (CAMS) is bullish. The stock rose over 3 per cent on Friday, taking the stock well above the psychological ₹3,000 mark. It has also closed the week on strong note.

    The region between ₹3,050 and ₹3,000 will now act a strong resistance-turned-support zone. A fall below ₹3,000 is unlikely as fresh buyers are likely come into the market at lower levels and limit the downside.

    Stock Market Live Today: Nifty and Bank Nifty Prediction for the week 26 Feb’24 to 01 March 2024 by BL GURU

    #Nifty50 broke above the key resistance level of 22,150 but did not get a strong follow-through rise. #BankNifty also broke above 47,100 but failed to sustain. Charts are looking relatively more positive for the short-term with strong supports for both the #nifty and #niftybank. So, we can expect both the #Nifty and #NiftyBank index to move further up in the short-term. But at the same time, we prefer to remain cautious as well.
