    Last day to subscribe to Zomato; should you invest?

    Due to urbanization, increase in choice, and convenience, there is a massive growth opportunity for Zomota in the coming years. At the higher end of the price band, Zomato IPO is roughly priced at a Mcap/ Sales of 28 times (based on FY21 data). This is much higher than its global peers DoorDash and DeliveryHero. As the online delivery space remains under-penetrated, Zomato is expected to command a higher valuation in India (scarcity premium).  However, investors looking to invest should bear in mind that it is a loss-making company and the company has clearly indicated that it will continue to report losses over the medium-term. Given the company’s market leadership status, strong topline growth, robust outlook, and positive sentiment due to marquee investors, investors who wish to take exposure to an under-penetrated online delivery industry could consider investing in this issue," SEBI-registered investment advisor INDmoney said in a report.

    Rupee may trade in 75.20-75.50 range in coming sessions

    Despite dollar remaining on back foot and inflows on account of various IPO’s and QIP’s, rupee could not manage to break the 74.40 crucial support level yesterday. If the BIG-bull continues to play its part to curb volatility downside, any dips in the USDINR pair would be taken for buying by importers, and while for exporters, it would remain sideways to sell. That apart, a second purchase of government bonds worth Rs 20,000 crores under the G-sec Acquisition Programme (G-SAP 2.0) could keep the rupee under pressure. So far, the rupee had been supported by the inflows pertaining to IPO’s. If inflows get standstill, a depreciation pressure resides on rupee and can take it towards 75.20-75.50 levels in the upcoming time. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors

    Nifty support at 15,850-15,900

    There were several attempts made in last month or so to go pass the level of 15910; but every time markets were struggling to do this. Today, finally this level is breached and that too on a closing basis, bodes well for the bulls. BANKNIFTY managed to traverse 35810, which led to a breakout beyond 15910 for Nifty. The way we closed on Thursday, 16000 is merely a formality now. If there is no aberration on the global front, we are likely to continue this optimism. So let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope to reach the milestone in the forthcoming session only. As far as supports are concerned, 15900 followed by 15850 are to be seen as immediate levels. For the forthcoming session, keep your eyes on the psychological level of 36000 for BANKNIFTY. The moment we stay beyond it, banking could easily start leading from the front.

    Q1FY22 earnings season providing support to Indian share market

    Equity market is cheering positive macro data points both on global and domestic front which is giving confidence to the investors of economic rebound.

    Nifty set to cross 16,000 soon

    Domestic equities look to be modestly good as of now. Notably, dovish remark of Federal Reserve Chairman Powell in his testimony despite surge in inflation should offer comfort to global equities including India. Apparently, benchmark Nifty, which was consolidating in the range of 15,600-15,900 for last couple of weeks, is set to cross 16,000 levels shortly. In our view, higher crude prices, spread of delta plus variant globally and weakening INR could be a near risk for markets. However, we continue to believe that the underlying strength of market remains intact and therefore any meaningful correction in the market should be taken as an opportunity to get in quality stocks.
