Any escalation in Indo-China tensions could add to rupee volatility

We are expecting the rupee to witness some consolidation, but trade with an upside bias in the near term. Although the sell-off in U.S. equities has been a dampener, we expect the dollar index to be subdued, which coupled with significant portfolio inflows should keep the rupee supported. However, any escalation in Indo-China tensions could add to the volatility and 72.80 on the rupee marks a near-term high for the pair: Sugandha Sachdeva VP-Metals, Energy & Currency Research, Religare Broking Ltd

Expert quote on Rail Vikas Nigam’s June earnings

For 1QFY21, Rail Vikas Nigam (RVNL)’s top-line grew ~2% yoy to Rs2,911cr. Top-line was negatively impacted mainly due COVID-19 lockdown.

Indo-China border tensions, rising cases of infections, valuations are key risks to Sensex

The BSE-30 Index declined 2% in the current week. The market remained cautious on weaker-than-expected GDP prints and weak GST collections even while PMI and auto sales showed some improvement. On the economy front, real GDP growth of (-)23.9% for 1QFY20 revealed the extent of economic damage from Covid-19. FPIs bought equities worth US$184 mn over the past five trading sessions while DIIs sold US$287 mn worth of equities in the same period. Indo-China border tensions, rising cases of infections, global market correction and valuations are the key risks to the Sensex, in our view. We see risk reward ratio getting unfavourable at these levels. Advice caution at the current juncture: Sanjeev Zarbade, VP PCG Research, Kotak Securities

Dollar bulls have been very active this week

This week dollar bulls have been very active and the support of 73 has not been broken. The worries over Brexit and delay in US fiscal stimulus package is keeping the USDINR spot afloat. The market focus is on today’s US inflation data and the upcoming number is very important because next week is Fed policy (Sep 15-16). A higher CPI number would continue to keep USDINR spot above 73 zone, with 73.75 being the resistance. Unless the USDINR spot doesn’t consistently trade above 73.75, the spot will remain sideways between 73-73.75: Rahul Gupta, Head of Research- Currency, Emkay Global Financial Services

Market opportunities in corporate lenders, high-income consumption basket

Once sentiment improves (in our view this lags GDP recovery), high-income consumption may normalize first: Maruti (CS raises TP) and Eicher have upside. We find that the market has mispriced risks in corporate lenders (too early to say the same for retail lenders), making Axis (TP raised), ICICI (TP raised) and SBI attractive. Weak balance sheets for informal firms mean the pace of formalization can stay elevated (GCPL). Weak investment by informal firms, state fiscal stress and headwinds to low-income discretionary demand mean a weak outlook for cement (CS downgrades SRCM), and two-wheelers (Hero). With momentum likely to be muted through much of FY21, we stay underweight industrials. Credit Suisse

Surge in covid19 cases around globe clouds outlook for Crude

On Thursday, WTI Crude plunged around 2 per cent closing at $37.3 per barrel as increasing U.S. Crude inventory levels and weak demand prospects for Crude undermined the prices. As per reports from the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), Crude inventory levels increased by 2.0 million barrels in the week ending on 4th September’20. Oil prices were also pressurized after top Crude exporter, Saudi Arabia, trimmed the Official Selling Price (OSP) to Asia for the month of October’20 considering the falling demand.

Until USD-INR trades below 74.50, every uptick shall remain selling opportunity

With the risk appetite remaining subdued, rupee is likely to remain within the range of 72.50-73.70 levels.

Overall, upside risk in the pair could be capped near 74.50 levels and appreciation shall be halted close to 72.00-72.50 levels, thereby keeping the pair in a broad range of 72.00-74.50 levels for next one or two months.

Analyst’s view on monsoon and rural economy with stock recommendations

We believe that a bumper Kharif season along with pent up demand and record procurement of food grain by the Government bodes well for the rural economy and allied sectors like Agrochemicals, two-wheelers and tractors. In the two-wheeler space, Hero Motocorp is our top pick with a target price of Rs. 3,422 as we expect greater demand for entry-level two-wheelers driven by an increased preference for personal transportation in the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis. In the tractor segment, we have a buy rating on Swaraj Engine with a target of Rs. 1,892 as we expect demand to remain robust given rising disposable rural income: Jyoti Roy – DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel Broking Ltd
