What should Supriya Lifescience investors do post stellar listing?

Supriya Lifescience, a pharma API manufacturer, made a stellar debut with 55% gains, listing at Rs425/share against IPO price of Rs274, amidst positive market sentiments. It has a niche product portfolio of 38 APIs with focus primarily on diverse therapeutic areas. It has consistently been India’s largest exporter of certain niche products with well-balanced presence between regulated and semi/non-regulated markets. We like Supriya for its niche product portfolio, backward integrated business model and robust financials. It is well placed to tap opportunity in the pharma API market given its strong pipeline focused on further diversification.

Indian rupee worst currency among Asian peers

The performance of INR has been one of the worst among its Asian peers. RBI intervention, inflation trajectory, movement of crude prices, and pace of liquidity unwinding by global central banks will guide the INR in the short to medium term.

What dragged down Indian Rupee against US Dollar?

One of the major factors for the decline in Indian rupee was the eminent liquidity tapering by the US Fed and other central banks. FIIs have pulled out over Rs 30,000 cr from the Indian equity market leading to some nervousness in the key indices as it trades a few percentage points below its all-time high. The concerns of liquidity tapering and rising inflation make it tough for central banks to stay put with Accommodative policy, the scenario will force liquidity tightening & rate hikes by the RBI somewhere in 2022, its effect is already reflected in the performance of the INR.

Nifty needs to close above 17200-17300 resistance zone to resume long-term uptrend

The markets were able to close well in the green on Monday despite opening with a gap down. However, we have not been able to close above the resistance of 17200-17300. Until that does not happen, we cannot rule out a U-turn from the current juncture. If we get past that resistance patch, we can summarize that the short-term weakness has been done with and we are resuming the long-term uptrend.

Further upside likely in Nifty if 17200 resistance is taken out

The VWAP of December series is placed near 17175. Thus a move above 17200 should trigger short covering in the markets. For the coming session, the trading spot band is between 17200 and 16800,which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 17200 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 16800 are broken.

Nifty support placed at 16,833

Nifty lacked follow-through on the sell-side and most importantly, recouped all its losses and finished with decent gains led by fresh buying in select pharma and private banking shares. Bulls hold the rein despite FIIs selling, spiking inflation, a hawkish Fed, and overvaluation concerns. Technically, all aggressive bullish eyes will be on Nifty’s biggest inter-week hurdles at the 17247-17389 zone. If Nifty powers higher above the 17389 mark, then expect — it will be again all roses for our stock markets. The make-or-break support on Nifty is seen at the 16663 mark. Key supports for Tuesday’s trade are placed at the 16833 mark.
