India-China Trade Jumps Thwarting Modi’s Self-Reliance Ambitions

India’s bilateral trade with China rose by a third in the year to March, throwing a spanner on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s drive to wean the South Asian nation from relying on its hostile neighbor for cheap imports and promote a thriving domestic industry.

Total merchandise trade between India and China rose 34% to $115.83 billion in the 12 months to March 2022, according to data from the Commerce Ministry released to parliament last week. Trade between the two nations so far this year — between April and October — stood at $69.04 billion, according to the ministry.

In recent years, Modi’s administration has been trying to cut India’s reliance on China — the country’s biggest source of imports. It imposed curbs on trade and businesses in 2020 amid the deadliest fighting in decades at their disputed Himalayan border. (Bloomberg)

Colgate Palmolive (CLGT IN): Rating: HOLD | CMP: Rs1,639 | TP: Rs1,639

Analyst Meet Update – Lacks Growth Triggers

CLGT Analyst meet had nothing new with focus on low-growth oral care and lack of any concrete strategy sharing to grow Personal care. CLGT Mgt highlighted four growth pillars of the future growth strategy of the company as 1) Lead toothpaste volume growth 2) Drive science led premiumisation 3) Lead category growth in toothbrush & Devices and 4) Build personal care portfolio. CLGT is looking at 1) Ramping up innovations (Max Fresh Charcoal, Visible White in Oral Beauty category and Electric Toothbrushes 2) Increasing promotion intensity and 3) sustained investments to increase presence in personal care (Face, Hand and Body care).

CLGT’s innovations in Oral care (Visible White, Power Toothbrush, Kids range) are all centric at premium end niche segments which won’t move growth needle for the company. CLGT will likely gain from any uptick in demand as naturals segment growth has now flattened (40bps share gain 10 2 years’ v/s 900bps in earlier 4 years). We believe CLGT needs to be much more aggressive in Personal care to accelerate growth. We estimate 8.1% Sales and 10.3% PAT CAGR over FY23-25 assuming 4.3% decline in FY23 EPS. Although CLGT’s growth is unexciting, favorable financial parameters (37.1x Sep’24 EPS, 2.2% Dividend yield, 90%+ payout and ~80% ROCE) limit downside. We value CLGT at 37x Sep’24 EPS and assign a Target of 1639 (NO CHANGE). Downgrade to HOLD.


TATA POWER: BUY CMP: 222 TRGT: 244 SL: 214

The stock after the short correction has attained the trendline support zone of 215 levels and has witnessed a pullback to come inside the channel pattern on the daily chart to improve the bias and anticipate for further rise in the coming days. With a move past the significant 50EMA level of 225, the trend would be further strengthened to expect targets of 240-244 in the coming days. With the risk reward ratio favorable, we recommend a positional buy in this stock for an upside target of 244 keeping a stop loss of 214.

U.S., UK export controls hit China’s access to Arm’s chip designs – FT

Chinese tech giant Alibaba Group Holding Ltd cannot buy some of the most advanced chip designs after the SoftBank-owned British chip tech firm Arm Ltd determined that U.S. and Britain would not approve licences to export technology to China, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.

This is the first known time that Arm has decided it could not export its most cutting-edge designs to China, the report said, citing people familiar with the matter.

The British chip tech firm concluded that the U.S. and UK would not approve the sale of its latest Neoverse V series because the performance was too high, the report added

Alibaba and Arm did not immediately respond to Reuters’ request for comment.

The development comes two months after the U.S. published a sweeping set of export controls, including a measure to cut China off from certain semiconductor chips made anywhere in the world with U.S. tools, vastly expanding its reach to slow Beijing’s technological and military advances. (Reuters)

Rupee falls 4 paise to 82.64 against US dollar

The rupee depreciated 4 paise to 82.64 against the US dollar in early trade on Wednesday as a strengthening greenback overseas and risk-off sentiment among investors ahead of the US Fed’s interest rate decision weighed on the local unit.

However, a firm trend in domestic equities supported the domestic currency, forex dealers said.

At the interbank foreign exchange, the domestic unit opened flat at 82.60 against the dollar, then lost some ground to quote at 82.64, registering a decline of 4 paise over its previous close.

In early deals, the rupee was moving in a tight range of 82.60-82.65. (PTI)
