Axis Securities recommendation on Star Cement: Encouraging Volume Growth; Outlook Remains Positive

Axis Securities recommendation on Star Cement after quarterly results: BUY with Target Price at 115

Encouraging Volume Growth; Outlook Remains Positive

Cement demand is expected to be robust both in North-East and East regions driving the volume growth for the company. It is setting up a 2 Mn tonne grinding unit each in Assam, its largest market in terms of cement consumption, which will enable the company to capture incremental demand coming out of various infra and housing projects from this region. Its Siliguri grinding unit is ramping up well and higher capacity utilization of the unit will help the company in improving its fixed cost absorption and will also aid in its volume growth moving ahead. With better cement demand, higher pricing and stabilization of the Siliguri Grinding unit, and cost optimization measures(12mw WHRS plant) undertaken by the company, we foresee Star Cement reporting decent performance moving forward. The stock is currently trading at 9x FY23E and 8x FY24E EV/EBITDA. We retain our BUY rating on the stock and value the company at 9x FY24E EV/EBITDA to arrive at a TP of 115/share, implying an upside of 13% from the CMP (taking into consideration the impact of higher tax)

INDIA RUPEE-Rupee flat as dollar demand offsets boost from oil plunge

The Indian rupee was little changed on Friday as the benefit from a plunge in oil prices was countered by continued corporate demand for the dollar.

The rupee was at 81.6650 per dollar, against its previous close of 81.65. The currency has declined 1% in volatile trade so far this week, giving back half its gains from last week in the wake of slightly soft U.S. inflation data.

There is persistent demand for dollars from oil importers and other corporates, said foreign exchange traders.

“Any dips in USD/INR are being bought out this week,” said Ritesh Agarwal, head of treasury at CTBC Bank. (Reuters)

Ashika Stock Broking: The elevated support level for the market now stands at 17950

Tirthankar Das, technical & derivative analyst, retail, Ashika Stock Broking Ltd: On the technical front, Nifty formed yet another indecisive candle resembling closer to a Doji kind of pattern on the daily charts. Two back-to-back Doji candle implies of an upcoming consolidation/weakness in the market which seems rational considering the sharp rally of almost 1700 points in last one month. Nifty since the past few days of trading session has led the Index to breach past the falling trend line which confirms that the primary trend is up and is well placed to accelerate the upward momentum hereon. Now the elevated support level for the market now stands at 17950 followed by 17500 as it happens to be the 50 days EMA and the breakout point from the 12 months falling trend line. The momentum indicator RSI (relative strength index) is presently at 68 slightly closer to overbought situation which further reinstates of an upcoming consolidation in the market, however present setup signifies that Nifty is on the path to challenge the all-time high of 18600 in coming sessions followed by 18900 in near term. During the day, Nifty is likely to open on a negative note amid negative global cues though the positive momentum in the Index is likely to withstand thus lower levels of 18300-18340 need to be utilized for initiating long position for an upside target of 18600.

Adani, World’s Third-Richest Person, Considering Opening Family Office in Dubai or New York

Asia’s richest person, Gautam Adani, is considering setting up a family office overseas to manage his ballooning wealth, according to people familiar with the discussions.

The chairman of the ports-to-power Adani Group conglomerate is looking at Dubai or New York as the base for the office, which will invest the Adani family’s personal funds, the people said, asking not to be identified because the matter is private. The group’s founders are in the process of hiring a full suite of specialized family office managers, one of the people said.

The move comes amid a $58 billion surge in Adani’s personal wealth this year — the most among the world’s richest people, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. It also reflects the tycoon and his family’s increasingly global ambitions, as the Adani Group makes significant overseas acquisitions beyond its traditional stronghold in India. (Bloomberg)

Geojit Financial Services: No trigger to push the market decisively into sharp correction territory

Dr V K Vijayakumar, chief investment strategist at Geojit Financial Services: “There are no major global or domestic triggers that can move the markets decisively as of now. Therefore, the market is likely to meander around the current levels. 18400 Nifty is acting as a resistance level. For the Nifty to move up to and beyond record highs some strong triggers are necessary and that is not happening. Also, there is no trigger to push the market decisively into sharp correction territory. The texture of the market continues to be Buy on Dips.

A significant trend in the market now is the bloodbath in the new-age digital companies triggered by the end of the lock-in period for initial institutional investors. Some of these stocks may turn out to be big wealth creators in the long run. Long-term investors with high risk appetite may consider nibbling at some of these stocks now available at huge discounts to their IPO price.”

Domestic jewellery industry to witness 12% growth in FY23: Report

The domestic jewellery industry, which recorded healthy sales during the festival period, is expected to witness 12 per cent growth during this financial year compared to the previous fiscal, according to a report.

The domestic jewellery industry is estimated to have registered a healthy growth of 60 per cent in the second quarter of FY23 as against pre-Covid levels (Q2 FY20), which exceeded Icra’s expectations of an 8 per cent YoY contraction and was driven by urban demand recovery following range-bound prices.

However, on a Year-on-Year (YoY) basis, the demand recorded a contraction of 2 per cent in the quarter owing to a high base in the second quarter of FY22, which had grown by 70 per cent YoY, due to pent-up demand after the lifting of the pandemic-induced restrictions last year, the Icra report said.
