    Sona BLW share price soars 12%

    "Sona BLW is one of India’s leading automotive technology companies that derives ~40% of its revenues from Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV) and Hybrid Vehicles and is the best play on the electrification trend in the Indian automobile industry. The company provides EV differential assemblies and gears, BSG systems and EV traction motors to global customers. ~75% of their income from sale of goods in FY21 came from end-use in the overseas markets. The global BEV segment has been fastest growing and is expected to maintain a high growth rate which is positive for Sona BLW.  The company’s capabilities have enabled them to gain market share across its products especially for products related to EV/BEV. They also have strong market share ranging from 55-90% for differential gears for PV, CV and tractor OEMs in India. Given the traction in the BEV/Hybrid Vehicle space, we believe that Sona BLW will continue to command a higher multiple which is justified by ~47% earnings CAGR over FY21-24E. We remain positive on the future growth prospects of the company and have a BUY rating on the stock with a target price of Rs 719," said Milan Desai, Lead Equity Analyst, Angel One.

Until we do not get past either end of this range, the movements are going to be choppy and sideways," said Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments.

    Chances of collapse appear small

    The mean reversion play that we had discussed yesterday, evolved precisely on anticipated lines. We had also stated our preference for resuming the upside trajectory, should the 17660 region be defended. Yesterday’s close being not far from 17660, we will go in today, expecting an upswing. The potential for rapid ascent to 18500 is still bright, but, indecisiveness may be in the 17730-70 vicinity. Inability to float above 17730 could deflate the upside momentum for the day, but the chances of a collapse, appear small.

    Trading spot band between 17570 and 17830

    Technically, index strike wise PCR OI of 17700 fell to 0.80, indicating call writing. In fact, fresh call writing was seen at strike price 17800 with 27 lakh shares, which means short-covering in index above 17830 levels . Buildup of OI was seen in the 17600 put. Combined with a fall in the option price, it indicates that put writing has happened at these strikes implying immediate support at these levels for the near term. So,further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 17830 are taken out.

    In the coming session, the trading spot band is between 17570 and 17830,which means further upsides are likely once the immediate resistances of 17830 are taken out and weakness could emerge if the supports of 17570 are broken.
