Footwear stocks made a comeback today as the Rs 550bn footwear market in India is witnessing consumerism once again aided by both Value for Money and Aspirational brands.

Should you subscribe to Campus Activewear IPO?

Talking about the risks, the company faces near term headwinds as the prices of its key raw material have risen dramatically. Also, the fact that the cash flow from operations of the company for 9MFY22 are negative, even though there has been an impressive jump in the revenue and profits, is a cause of concern. Lastly, the post-issue P/E of ~78x based on FY22 annualized earnings indicates that the valuations are quite steep. Considering these factors, the overall volatile market sentiment and that the long term prospects of the company seem positive, only investors with healthy risk appetite are advised to ‘Subscribe for Long Term’ Yesha Shah, Head of Equity Research, Samco Securities

Paytm, Nykaa, Zomato, internet stocks not attractive enough, re-opening trade to last long: Nikhil Kamath

Nikhil Kamath is still not looking to buy new-age internet companies such as Nykaa, Paytm, Zomato and others despite their strong correction so far this year. “I don’t like companies which do not make a profit, because I like valuing companies as a multiple of profit,” the co-founder of TrueBeacon and Zerodha told He added that it may not be right for anyone to factor in future growth before the growth has happened and value the company as if that were a certainty. So far this year, Nykaa is down 19.6%, Paytm stock has tanked 54% and that of Zomato has fallen 44%.

‘We could see good allocation in value-oriented sectors in the next 1-2 years’

Q4FY22 earnings commentaries remain critical and will drive the market fundamentals moving forward. As we have seen historically, value themes tend to do better in rising inflation and interest rate scenarios. We could see good allocation in value-oriented sectors in the next 1-2 years. Further, in Q4FY22, commodities, and services including Banks, Metals, Oil & Gas, display robust earnings growth on a YoY basis. Keeping the heightened commodity cost pressure and the supply side constraints in view, it is likely to be a challenging quarter in terms of margins for commodity consumers like Automobiles, FMCG, Cement, and Specialty Chemical sectors.

Investors should limit risky bets in current market environment

In the near term, the market performance is likely to be range-bound, and we could see the reaction in both directions. Yesterday, we saw a sharp rise in volatility, and in today’s session, there was some cool-off in the India VIX index, so the market is green. A clear trend is likely to emerge after volatility sustains at lower levels for longer-term. FIIs flows are likely to remain volatile on account of aggressive rate hikes expectation amid the rising inflationary scenario. So, investors should limit the risky bets in the current market environment and focus on the fundamentals where the earnings visibility is intact.

Campus with leading market share in India’s branded S&A footwear, is well placed to capture the highly underpenetrated and fast growing footwear segment in India.

Adani Wilmar surpasses Rs 1 lakh crore mcap

The Ukraine war has shot commodity prices higher worldwide, Ukraine being the largest exporter of oilseeds like sunflower, and soybean seeds have pushed the edible oil prices. The Indonesian palm oil export ban and Malaysian export tax will further squeeze the oil supply. This whole problem has skyrocketed edible oil prices in India, benefiting Edible Oil companies like Adani Wilmar. The company will have windfall gains via. Unsold inventory revaluation. Further, this situation will improve the overall margins for the company. Due to these factors the company has finally crossed the Rs 1 lakh crore market cap level, however, we advise investors to stay cautious as the stock has moved far ahead from its fundamentals.

Elon Musk’s Twitter deal not for financial gains

The acquisition of Twitter by Elon Musk should be seen as a new form of activist investment where the agenda is not only financial gains by restructuring an underperforming business but also to make the platform more relevant for its global customer base. The stock of Twitter has been a rank underperformer since its listing in 2013. The IPO was done at a market cap of USD31 billion which is almost the market cap at which Musk started buying the shares of the company for earlier this year. Even at the acquisition price of USD 54.2 per share, the price has barely returned 9% per year from its IPO price of USD 26 per share. This is in stark contrast to the massive returns generated over the same period by leading FAANG stocks like Apple and Amazon that have gone on to become trillion-dollar businesses.

Rupee to trade in short term range of 75.70-77 against US dollar

Broadly, the fundamentals are negative for the rupee and the only preventing factor is RBI. The central bank has actively managed the volatility in currency by selling its fx reserves and using tools such as sell/buy swap. In such an attempt, Today RBI will conduct $5bn sell/buy swap which is likely to add some short term support for the rupee. Technically, yesterday we saw the rupee depreciating up to 76.75 levels but did not sustain making it a strong resistance for the USDINR pair. Overall, we continue to expect the rupee to trade in the short term range of 75.70-77.00. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors

MCX crude oil weak in near-term, may fall to Rs 7000 this week; Covid lockdown, Fed rate hike weigh on outlook

Nifty to remain volatile amid worries about inflation; investors should focus on selective stocks

We expect markets to remain volatile amid worries about inflation and its impact on corporate earnings, while also fuelling concerns over aggressive US Fed rate hikes in the near term. However, stock specific action may continue as we are progressing into earnings season. Nifty is now again below 17,000 levels and weakness may continue towards 16,650-16800 zones. Market is likely to remain volatile in the broader trading range with absence of follow up on either side. We suggest investors to remain focused on selective stocks in the market which are resilient on the back of strong quarterly results.
