    Brokerage view on RBI's ownership proposals

    We opine that an NBFC’s decision to convert into a bank hinges on the trade‐off between sustainability (lower mortality risk) and higher regulatory (CRR/SLR) and compliance (tighter supervision) and operating costs (arguably transient). Although large well‐run NBFCs are, by definition well‐funded, we believe such conversion represents a desirable long‐term outcome for such entities to ensure sustainable growth: HDFC Securities

    New all-time highs this week?

    "The overall market breadth continues to be positive and broad market indices like midcap and small cap segments have closed on a decent gains of around 0.86% and 1.15% respectively. this is positive indication. Nifty on the weekly chart formed a small negative candle with minor lower shadow. This pattern signal a breather type formation at the new highs, after a sharp upmove of the previous couple of weeks. Hence, this could also mean a lack of selling enthusiasm in the market post sharp upmove/at all time highs. The Nifty closed above the crucial long term up trend line resistance at 12800 levels. The near term uptrend status remains intact and upside momentum is expected to continue after this small dip in the market. Hence, one may expect Nifty to move towards the new all time high of 12963 levels. A decisive/sustainable move above 13000 levels could open next upside targets of 13500-13600 in the near term. Immediate supports to be watched at 12680-12730 levels," said Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities.
