Hotels, tourism firms likely to have seen sharp recovery in April-June quarter; check top stocks to buy

The hotels and tourism sector has gone through a lot over the last few years since covid took the world by storm.

Hence, from a Q1FY23 perspective, we expect occupancy levels to improve to ~75% while average room rates are likely to remain higher by 10% QoQ to Rs 8300/room for the premium segment,” the brokerage firm said.

Buy ONGC, GAIL, Oil India

We expect RIL’s 1QFY23 EBITDA to jump 33% QoQ at INR 418bn led by sharp spike in refining margin (GRM) to ~USD 22/bbl; this will be partly aided by 3.4% QoQ growth in Digital EBITDA and 9.0% QoQ growth in Retail EBITDA. Upstream PSUs’ (ONGC and Oil India) earning is expected to rise strongly QoQ on the back of higher crude prices and hike in domestic gas price. Despite the strong GRMs of ~USD 21/bbl, OMCs’ are likely to report losses in 1QFY23 due to huge marketing under-recovery of INR 15-16/ltr on petrol/diesel. Moderation in spot LNG price in 1QFY23 is likely to support volume growth for GAIL, PLNG and GSPL; however spot LNG price has spiked again in last few weeks posing risk to volumes going forward. We reiterate BUY on ONGC (TP INR 210), Oil India (TP INR 280) and GAIL (TP INR 190) as they are the key beneficiaries of rising crude and gas prices. JM Financial Services

Tata Steel stock was down 1.5% on Tuesday as the worst-performing Sensex stock. Titan, Asian Paints, and HDFC were the other drags.

Maintain positive stance

“Going ahead, we maintain our positive stance and expect Nifty to gradually head towards 16600 in coming weeks. However, the move towards 16600 will not be in a linear manner as bouts of volatility owing to overbought condition amid global uncertainty can not be ruled out. Thus, any dip towards 15800-15700 should be used as incremental buying opportunity as we believe strong support for the Nifty is placed at July low of 15500.”

Gold trades near 9-month low

COMEX gold trades mixed near $1730/oz and has tested a fresh Sept.2021 low. Gold trades near 9-month low weighed down by persistent strength in the US dollar. The US dollar index has jumped to 2002 high on safe haven buying and tightening expectations. Also weighing on gold price is correction across commodities which has dented gold’s appeal as an inflation hedge. ETF outflows show weaker investor interest. Concerns are also high about consumer demand in China amid virus related restrictions. Gold is a safe haven and global growth worries are high however it has failed to benefit due to continuing strength in the US dollar and this may not change ahead of US inflation data later this week.

Caution will be the buzzword for today’s trading

Caution will be the buzzword for today’s trading as overnight US benchmark indices faltered while SGX Nifty and other Asian gauges too have retreated sharply in early trades. While there seems to be no respite from FII selling, DIIs too joined the bandwagon and offloaded shares in yesterday's trades, selling to the tune of Rs 170 crores and 297 crores, respectively. Although the selling was not that aggressive but it's enough to dent bullish sentiments.

Tata Consultancy Services rating: Hold | Preparing for uncertain times

TCS’s Q1FY23 revenues were slightly ahead but margins and profits missed estimates. Deal wins at $8.2 bn were steady reflecting healthy demand, but increasing reliance on subcontractors with lower net hiring suggests that TCS is also preparing for an uncertain macro. We lower our FY23-25 estimates by 1-3% to factor in the miss and expect TCS to deliver a 9% EPS CAGR in FY22-24. TCS’ premium valuations may limit upside. Maintain Hold and revise PT to Rs 3,070.
