    Led by buying in some heavyweight stocks in early trade, Indian equity benchmarks stayed positive. Investors took a note of an SBI report that the fiscal condition of the Centre and the states will be substantially better than anticipated for FY22 if there is no third wave of Covid-19 epidemic, and the states may garner Rs 60,000 crore higher in tax receipts at Rs 8.27 lakh crore this fiscal year than they had projected. The S&P 500 and the Dow fell on June 14, a day after the S&P 500 set a new closing high, as investors awaited the Federal Reserve's meeting this week for clues on the central bank's inflation outlook and the future of asset purchases. The Indian market has been positive in the first half and has made an attempt to sustain above the level of 15850.15900 will act as a resistance in the short term. If the market breaches the level of 15900, we can see a new rally with an upside potential till the level of 16150-16200. Gaurav Garg, Head of Research, CapitalVia Global Research

However, treading cautiously when markets reach record highs might be the correct way forward. Amid this, domestic brokerage and research firm ICICI Direct has handpicked three shares as its ‘Gladiator stocks’ that find strong technical support on the charts along with robust fundamentals.

    Brokerage view on Sona BLW IPO

    Tightened cost control measures aided EBITDA and PAT. Given the criticality of its component offerings in India as well as globally, the company enjoys a higher gross/EBITD margins of 59%/28% respectively. Low leverage despite capex intensive nature of the business has boosted its return ratios (ROE of 17%). Its deep-rooted relationships with OEMs (10-25 years) makes it a compelling growth story. With  increased penetration of Battery electric vehicles, the company could see an uptick in content per vehicle over next few years. At the upper price band of Rs 291, the offer is priced at 74.1x/55.6x/41.4x EPS on FY21/22e/23e EPS on our estimates. We assign a  SUBSCRIBE rating to the offer. INDSEC

    Broad-based surge in CPI inflation

    CPI inflation surprisingly surpassed the RBI’s target band, amid higher food and core inflation, despite weak demand. We expect the RBI to continue to focus on supporting growth as a large part of the increase in inflation is supply-driven and hence transitory in nature. As growth starts normalizing from July, RBI’s ability to ignore inflationary risks will be restricted, prompting gradual monetary policy normalization from October. Kotak Institutional Equities

    Nifty seems headed to 15900-16000

    The index continues its bullish trajectory and seems headed to 15900-16000. Despite multiple sessions of nervousness, the Nifty has been successful in respecting the 15700-15750 levels of support. As long as we do not break that on a closing basis, this trend is here to stay. The best way to ride this trend will be to accumulate long positions on dips. That would be the most prudent way of being a part of the larger trend. Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments

    Indian rupee may rebound sharply above 73.80-74 in coming days

    Domestically, broad dollar strength and rising oil prices have hurt the rupee in past trading sessions. Besides that, a spike in India's retail price inflation to a six-month high of 6.3% in May, breaching the Reserve Bank of India's target range after five months; while a jump in wholesale prices by 12.94% in May could further dent investor sentiments. However, the only ray of hope to support the rupee is the FII inflows on account of upcoming IPO’s and QIP’s that could cap sharp losses thereon. Overall, we expect the USDINR pair to form a base near 73.20-30 and rebound sharply above 73.80-74.00 levels in upcoming days. Amit Pabari, managing director, CR Forex Advisors
