    IRCTC stock outlook

    Overall fundamentals are still strong for this counter but the market will hesitate to give valuations that it was enjoying before this event because such kind of risk will remain in the mind of investors. The roller coaster ride led to a sharp rise in option IVs i.e the value of OTM options, therefore, option writers and arbitragers are looking at it as a golden opportunity as uncertainty is out of the window for time being. The option writer may try to keep this counter range-bound for November. Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart

    Nykaa IPO: Time to invest in IPO?

    At the higher end of the price band, Nykaa IPO is expensively priced at a PE ratio of 840 times FY21 earnings per share (on a post-issue basis). The valuation appears to be high, given that the company turned in a marginal profit in FY21. On a price-to-sales basis, Nykaa is priced at 21.5 times FY21 earnings per share. There are no immediate listed peers for the company, and hence, it could enjoy a scarcity premium in India. Given the company’s market leadership status, strong topline growth, robust outlook, positive sentiment due to marquee investors and promoter group, investors who wish to take exposure to an under-penetrated online cosmetics e-tailing business could consider investing in this issue, SEBI-registered investment advisor INDmoney said in a report.

    RBI Governor Shaktikanta Das reappointed

    The three-year reappointment is slightly longer than the usual two-year extension that has been the norm recently. In our view, the  reappointment of Governor Das, a former Economic Affairs Secretary and a former member of the finance commission is a sign ofcontinued trust from the government. Under Governor Das, the central bank has done the heavy lifting to support the economy through the COVID crisis, with fiscal policy playing a supportive role. We also view the governor’s reappointment as a vote of confidence in the RBI’s policy stance. Rahul Bajoria, Chief India Economist

    Nifty support at 17600 now

    The index went into a free fall immediately upon opening. 17600 is the next level of support and if we can hold on to that, there is every possibility that we take a U-turn from here and resume the upside trajectory. On the flip side, if we break 17600 on a closing basis, the Nifty can slide further towards 17200. Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

    What may increase Gold's safe-haven appeal?

    COMEX gold trades marginally lower near $1798/oz after a 0.2% gain yesterday. Gold has continued to trade in a broad range near $1800/oz as support from weaker US dollar, global growth worries and rising inflation concerns are countered by relative stability in equity markets. Mixed ETF activity also shows lack of confidence in investors. Gold may continue to trade in a range however increasing challenges to global economy may increase its safe-haven appeal and keep prices supported.

    F&O expiry outlook: Nifty resistance placed at 18000-18100, Banking sector to guide stock markets this week

    Since the market is a bit oversold, we may see some relief move in between; but traders should not get carried away by such rebounds. On the higher side, 18000 – 18100 would now be seen as immediate hurdles and any bounce back towards it, should be used to lighten up longs. On the flip side, we may see this corrective move extending towards 17700 – 17600 – 17450 in the coming days. All eyes are on the banking space going forward because initially it was a saviour and has become the culprit now. So, it would be interesting to see how it moves going ahead, which is likely to dictate the direction for the overall market.
