    Buy Whirlpool and Orient Electric shares for over 20% gains as demand for consumer electronics grows

    Consumer electronics manufacturers saw muted demand during the first two months of the April-June quarter owing to the second wave of covid-19, however, in June demand started picking up, domestic brokerage and research firm Motilal Oswal observed. “As per current trends, demand remains robust at end-1QFY22, with a gradual scale-up expected on a month-on-month basis. The upcoming festive season holds the key for offtake across various categories,” the brokerage firm said. Along with the pickup in demand, the consumer electronics and durables sector is also witnessing consolidation in favour of organised players, which could help listed players.

    What pushed Sensex, Nifty higher?

    Indian markets started on a positive note despite mixed Asian market cues which traded lackluster as investors eye U.S. jobs data. During the afternoon session markets added to the gains on the back of sustained buying activities by traders. Adding to the already positive sentiments a private report penning that the ongoing economic recovery will quickly take India above the pre-pandemic levels in most sectors of the economy, adding that the improved health of the Indian financial sector is also a positive factor for economic growth. Investors also cheered with RBI’s statement that India's holding of IMF's Special Drawing Rights (SDR) has gone up to SDR 13.66 billion which is equivalent to USD 19.41 billion.

    INR: The curious case of RBI’s supposed hands-off

    The recent INR strength has taken markets off guard, with INR gaining more than 1.6% in just last five trading session, having even seen the intra-day lows of sub-73/$. The intrinsic near-term appreciation bias on INR is not too surprising given: (1) Healthy non-portfolio flows  - Adani green dollar bond-led flows , AT1 bond issuances of a certain bank, FDI flows in general, (2) FII turning net buyers in Aug again for equities (+$628mn) and FPI debt sees first positive print in the year ($1.6bn – highest since Mar’19); (3) Generic DXY weakness post Jackson hole, spilling on to EMFX. We note Indian equities have also had a solid run in Aug, rising a substantial 11% (USD terms) and outperformed broader EM markets in Aug - MSCI APxJ/EM (+1.9%/+2.4%). The cross country FPI flows also show a better FPI allocation in India. Madhavi Arora, Lead Economist, Emkay Global Financial Services

    Nifty seen at 17700 by Dec-end: Buy ICICI Bank, SBI, other financial shares to gain from this rally

    NSE Nifty 50 index is set to hit 17,700 levels by December 2021, as range bound volatility suggests the continuance of a strong bull run, said Axis Securities. The brokerage firm has upgraded its Nifty 50 December target from 17,400 earlier. In August 2021, India VIX, the volatility index, traded around the level of 13, which is lower than the long-term average of 22, suggesting a positive setup for the market with limited downside. Axis Securities believes that if VIX continues to fall, it will trigger a further rally in the broader market. Since November 2020, midcap and smallcap stocks have been picking up steam, and are expected to post robust returns in 2021 as the economic uncertainties and volatility decline.

    Nifty eyes 17,500 target now

    Indian benchmark had a cautious start today around level of 17100. Some support will come as Goods and services tax (GST) collection moderated in August compared to the previous month. Economic activity gained pace with a decline in Covid-19 cases. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has sharply increased its allocation of Special Drawing Rights (SDR) to India, in line with the country’s existing quota in the fund. Our research suggests that if markets sustained above 17000, we could expect the market to gain momentum, leading to an upside projection till 17450-17500.

    Subdued listing for recent IPOs: High valuations, low quality, oversupply leave little for investors

    As many as ten companies made their stock market debut in August and half of them had subdued listing. Euphoric performance of IPOs during 2020 and in the first eight months of this year also had its fallout. Oversupply, fall in quality, and valuation, all these factors have resulted in a situation where not much money was left on the table for incoming investors. In turn, some of the listings were on a subdued note, according to analysts.

    Indian rupee to face resistance at 73.58-73.60

    USD/INR Sep opened on a positive note and was moving in a marginally sideways to Bearish trend. Till the starting of the second half of the session, prices were consolidating in a narrow range of 73.25-73.15. In the second half prices gave a minor breakout, but volume on the respective candle was not enough so prices again went into a consolidation phase. 110-SMA is coming closer to prices from above so we may expect it to act as a dynamic resistance on intraday charts and 9-SMA & 21-SMA are intertwined in one another, so we cannot expect a clear direction forecast from their crossover. If we analyze Daily charts, an “Inside Bar” candlestick pattern has been formed, if the low of today’s candle gets breached with enough volumes, we may see a further downfall in prices. There are no such support levels on the downside, but we may expect prices to test the same in the range of 73.0-72.95, as this is a major psychological zone and prices may spend considerable time around this level. On the upside, resistance may get tested in the range of 73.58-73.60. Kshitij Purohit, Lead International & Commodities at CapitalVia Global Research

    Near-term range for USD-INR remains tucked in 72.80-73.50 range

    So far, rupee had been supported majorly on account of corporate and IPO inflows and the absenteeism from intervention in the spot market by the BIG bull. However, with rupee not being able to cap gains beyond 72.90 levels and moving back towards 73.15 levels, suggest that RBI could be back in action on downside. Going ahead, it will be watchful whether RBI continues the loosening grip or hovers back to pack the dollars. Meanwhile, data showing weaker than expected India’s factory growth in August due to constraints by covid-19 may also limit some gains. With overall uncertainty, the near-term range for the pair remains tucked between 72.80-73.50 levels, thus buyers can look to hedge near 72.80-73.00 and one can look to sell above 73.40-73.50 levels in the near term.
