    Wall Street construction stocks may re-rate, says Morgan Stanley as US enters infra supercycle

    US President Joe Biden’s infrastructure plan could be a shot in the arm for the US infrastructure sector paving the way for an infrastructure supercycle that could result in re-rating of construction stocks and help cement companies double their profits, said Morgan Stanley. “Despite the greater focus on elements related to clean energy and electric vehicles, the old-fashioned infrastructure and building materials -- think concrete and asphalt roads, steel for bridges -- could deliver an outsized economic impact,” they said. Joe Biden’s administration plans a massive bi-partisan infrastructure bill that would set the ball rolling for the US economy.

    15650 an important level for Nifty to stay positive

    Indian equities benchmarks were trading moderately lower on Thursday morning trades, fluctuating between gains and losses due to a sluggish trend in Asian peers and foreign investment outflow. Traders became concerned when India's manufacturing activity fell for the first time in 11 months in June, as cautious consumer attitude in the aftermath of the disastrous second wave of the coronavirus pandemic drove firms to cut factory output. Despite states loosening lockout rules, the contraction occurred. We witnessed an attempt to hold the Nifty 50 index support level of 15670-15700. 15650 will be an important level in the short term for the market to stay positive. We expect a recovery from these level till the level of 15900. Gaurav Garg, Head of  Research, CapitalVia Global Research

The latest results highlighted renewed contractions in factory orders, production, exports and quantities of purchases. With business optimism fading over the month, job shedding continued.

    Rupee to move in line with RBI’s position; 74 a strong support for Indian rupee

    On the domestic front, the equity market can be seen trading under pressure on FII’s profit booking in the Indian stocks. This could be worrisome for the foreign flows and so for the Rupee. Ahead of further outflow, the RBI is piling up its FX reserves even at the current levels and hence we are not seeing any appreciating move beyond 74 mark. Broadly, it has become really important to understand RBI’s stance as Rupee will move in line with the RBI’s position. Further, the return of the COVID variant, higher crude oil prices and expectation of a higher fiscal deficit will try to break the roof of 74.40-50 levels. If this level is taken out then one can expect an immediate move towards 75-75.20 levels. On the contrary side, 74 is likely to be a strong support zone for the pair.
