    Buy Ramkrishna Forgings ~ Angel One

    Ramkrishna Forgings (RKFL), a leading forging player in India and among a select few having heavy press stands to benefit from a favorable demand outlook for the Medium & Heavy Commercial Vehicle (M&HCV) industry in domestic and export markets in the near term. The company has phased out its CAPEX over the past few years during which it was impacted by industry slowdown in certain periods. With the end to the CAPEX cycle, the favorable outlook in the medium term, and sufficient capacity in place, we believe RKFL volumes would be able to post volume CAGR of 29% over FY21-23E. RKFL has been able to add new products which have higher value addition. Better mix along with operating leverage is expected to result in ~550 YoY bps EBITDA margin improvement in FY22E. Aided by strong volumes and profitability as well as balance sheet deleveraging, we expect the RKFL’s earnings to jump 10-12x in FY23E-24E from FY21 levels.

    Still not out of the woods

    "We are still not completely out of the woods as we can see multiple hurdles in the vicinity of 100 – 150 from hereon. Technically speaking, Nifty has precisely closed at the ‘200-SMA’ on the hourly chart and not far from here, we can see previous important support zone of 18000 – 18100, which is now likely to act as strong resistance. Hence, unless we do not surpass 18100 and stays above it, we may see some profit booking to come again. Hence, momentum traders are advised not to get carried away, till the time important levels are not reclaimed. On the flipside, 17800 followed by 17700 are to be seen as immediate supports," said Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One Ltd.

    Dhanteras 2021: Gold posts 52% return in last 3 yrs; key factors to push gold, silver prices higher this year

    Gold gave a tepid return (-6.2%) if we compare returns from last Diwali to this Diwali. However, in the long run, gold has given positive returns namely 59% (last 5 years), 61.8% (last 4 years), 52.2% (3 years), and 24.8% from Diwali 2019. The reason behind the underperformance last year was the rush of liquidity in the equity markets. The influx of liquidity has gone into riskier assets like equity and property which helped those assets give high returns leaving precious metals like Gold and Silver struggling to find momentum.

    Can Nifty soar higher?

    "The index has opened on a lethargic note but it is a positive sign that it is above 17900. That is a crucial level to keep in mind.

A base has been formed around 17550-17600 but if that were to break, we could slide down to 17200," said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

    Eyes on Fed meet

    "The 258-point surge in Nifty yesterday, despite massive sustained selling by FIIs for several days, has again proved that FII selling can impact the market only in the short run. The retail and DII enthusiasm is getting fundamental support from positive economic data like record GST collections (Rs 1.3lakh cr in October), PMI at 55.9 in September and better than expected Q2 results. An important event that can influence financial markets globally is the FOMC meet starting today. The Fed is widely expected to announce tapering its bond buying program starting this month. More important than the tapering announcement, which is already discounted by markets, will be the Fed's response to inflation and the likely cues on rate hikes. If indications of an earlier than expected rate hike comes from the FOMC meet, that can be negative for markets. Otherwise markets may continue to be resilient," said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.

    More upside likely if Nifty breaches 18,030 levels

    Historically it is seen that the Nifty finds it difficult to move up sharply when it's cost-of-carry at higher side. So, consolidation is expected till this premium doesn't start getting lower. The Call writer's positions are still lower than Put writer's which means the declines in the index should be arrested and it should be a more stock specific market.

    For the coming session, the trading spot band is between 18030 and 17800, which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 18030 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 17800 are broken.

    Oct mop-up: GST collections impressive at Rs 1.3 lakh crore

    Gross goods and services tax (GST) collections came in at Rs1,30,127 crore in October (September sales), the second highest mop-up in the history of the comprehensive indirect tax that was launched in July 2017. This, coupled with a sustained trend of rise in the number of e-way bills (inter-state trade) and GST returns for several weeks through October, bears testimony to a rise in consumption and a marked increase in tax compliance, though partly at the cost of the businesses in the informal sector, a section of which has perished.
