Closing Bell: Markets rise for the seventh session in a row; metal and PSU stocks lead the rally.

Markets rise for the seventh session in a row; metal and PSU stocks lead the rally.
by 5paisa Research Team 18/10/2021

Domestic benchmark indices closed higher in the seventh consecutive session on Monday, October 18, led by metal, PSU bank and power stocks.

Indian markets are soaring high with each trading session and today was no different in terms of gains. Equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty started the week at record highs. Gains were witnessed across sectors led by metal, financial, and oil and gas shares, which pushed the market higher. The broader indices BSE midcap and smallcap added 0.95% and 0.69% each.

At the closing bell on October 18, the Sensex was up 459.64 points or 0.75% at 61,765.59, and the Nifty was up 138.50 points or 0.76% at 18,477. On the advance-decline ratio, 1677 shares have advanced, 1563 shares declined, and 127 shares remain unchanged.

Top gainers of the day were Hindalco Industries, Infosys, Tech Mahindra, JSW Steel and Tata Steel, while top laggards were HCL Technologies, M&M, Asian Paints, Britannia Industries and Dr Reddy’s Laboratories.

On the sectoral front, other than pharma, all other sectoral indices ended in the green with power, metal and PSU bank indices adding 2-4%.

According to market experts, in absence of any major event this week, earnings will remain in focus with a long list of index majors announcing their results. Market participants will be closely eyeing the management commentaries for the future growth outlook. Apart from this, global cues would also be on investors' radars.

Chinese GDP grew by just 4.9% during the July-September quarter owing to lower-than-expected growth in industrial activity. However, it did not affect the Indian market as bulls took the charge of PSU Banks, metals, IT and energy stocks.

Asian Energy Services secures contract from Heavy Engineering Corporation.

Asian Energy Services secures contract from Heavy Engineering Corporation.
by 5paisa Research Team 18/10/2021

The company plans to further bid for such upcoming projects in this space to leverage its experience and increase its foothold in this line of business.

Asian Energy Services has been awarded a contract worth Rs 236 crore (inclusive of GST) for coal handling infrastructure by Heavy Engineering Corporation (HEC) at Gevra, Chhattisgarh. This contract marks the fruition of the company’s efforts to enter the coal infrastructure sector. The campaign for the same began in 2020 when the company diversified primarily from oil and gas to other energy services.

The company has also been selected as an approved awardee for the coal handling infra project at Hura OCP by Eastern Coalfields Ltd (ECL) worth Rs 128 crore (inclusive of GST). The company is awaiting an LOA (Letter of Acceptance) from ECL pending completion of necessary land acquisition by ECL which is expected soon.

In order to reduce road transport of coal and making Indian mining infrastructure efficient and modern, coal handling plants with rapid loading systems are being set up in mines. At least 35 projects are planned to be commissioned in the coming years with an estimated capital outlay of around Rs 17,000 crore in FY22 by Coal India Limited. The company plans to further bid for such upcoming projects in this space to leverage its experience and increase its foothold in this line of business.

To quote Ashutosh Kumar, Whole-time Director and CEO of Asian Energy Services Limited (AESL) from a filing with the exchange, “As the modernization of existing infra and creation of new infra is taking centre stage of Government of India, we will see plenty of opportunities in this segment and with successfully bagging initial projects, AESL is geared up to participate in this. This fits well into AESL vision of growth and expansion as it opens up avenues to expand our portfolio of services for bulk materials handling and mine development operations.

Asian Energy Services is an oilfield service and reservoir imaging company, offering a suite of geophysical services specializing in land and well seismic services and operation and maintenance services for oilfields. It is one of the few companies providing end-to-end services in the upstream oil segment.

Chart Busters: Top trading set-ups to watch out for on Tuesday.

Chart Busters: Top trading set-ups to watch out for on Tuesday.
by 5paisa Research Team 19/10/2021

On the first day of the week, the benchmark index Nifty has marked the fresh all-time high of 18543.15 level. On Monday, the index has gained 138.50 points or 0.76%. The index has formed a small body bearish candle, which indicates indecisiveness near the all-time high level. Going ahead, the upside opening gap of 18350-18445 is likely to act as strong support for the index.

Here are the top trading set-ups to watch out for Tuesday. 

Aarti Industries: The stock has given a downward sloping trendline breakout as of October 04, 2021, and thereafter witnessed nearly 18% upside in just six trading sessions. After registering the high of Rs 1131.80, the stock has witnessed consolidation for the next three trading sessions. During the consolidation, the volume activity was below the 50-day average volume. Hence it should be viewed as a routine decline after a robust move. On Monday, the stock has given three days of consolidation breakout along with robust volume. All the moving averages based on trade set-ups are showing a bullish strength in the stock. Daryl Guppy’s multiple moving averages is suggesting a bullish strength in the stock. The stock is trading above all the 12 short- and long-term moving averages. The averages are all trending up, and they are in a sequence. The leading indicator, 14-period daily RSI is in the super bullish zone, and it is in rising mode. Considering the robust technical structure of the stock we believe it is likely to touch new highs. On the upside, the level of Rs 1213 will act as minor resistance for the stock. While on the downside, the zone of Rs 1100-Rs 1088 will act as support for the stock.

Rail Vikas Nigam: The stock has formed a doji candlestick pattern as on the weekend of March 27, 2021, and thereafter marked the sequence of higher tops and higher bottoms. After registering the high of Rs 35.55, the stock has entered into the contracting consolidation for 39-weeks. This resulted in the formation of a symmetrical triangle pattern on the weekly chart. On Monday, the stock has given a symmetrical triangle pattern breakout. Interestingly, on the first day of the week, the stock has witnessed nearly 9 times of 50-days average volume. The 50-days average volume is 47.04 lakh while today it has witnessed 4.09 crore volume. This indicates strong buying interest by market participants. Additionally, the stock has formed a strong bullish candle on breakout day. Currently, it is trading above its short and long-term moving averages. These averages have started rising higher, which is a bullish sign. The weekly RSI has surged above the 60 mark for the first time after the second week of July 2021. The weekly and daily RSI is in rising mode. The weekly MACD line just crossed the signal line, and the histogram became green. Technically, all the factors are currently aligned in support of the bulls. Hence, we would advise the traders to be with a bullish bias. As per the measure rule of the symmetrical triangle pattern, the first target is placed at Rs 41, followed by the Rs 43 level. On the downside, the 20-week EMA is likely to act as strong support for the stock, which is currently placed at the Rs 30.40 level.

The bull run in the Indian market continued for a seventh consecutive session on Monday, and shows no sign of slowing down today as well.

The Indian markets enjoyed a strong run in the last trading with Nifty and Sensex both closing at a fresh record high. On Tuesday morning, the SGX Nifty is indicating the bull’s buying spree may see no signs of abating as SGX Nifty is trading up by 81 points at 18,567.50 levels. So, it is highly likely that we see a fresh all-time high at the opening bell. Certainly, with the kind of movement we are witnessing in the benchmark indices lately, it's too good to be true! Commanding attention in today’s session would be Nifty FMCG as Nestle and Hindustan Unilever are scheduled to report their earnings today and hence, Nifty FMCG could be in limelight.

Cues from Asian markets: Asian markets were seen trading in green on Tuesday. Hong Kong’s Hang Seng advanced 1.09%, while Japan’s Nikkei 225 and China’s Shanghai Composite rose 0.67% and 0.27%, respectively.

Overnight cues from US markets: On Monday, the tech-heavy Nasdaq and the S&P 500 ended in positive terrain, while the Dow managed to rebound from lower levels, but ended the day marginally below the neutral line. Nasdaq soared 0.8% and it managed to outperform its counterparts. The S&P 500 gained 0.3% and the Dow slipped 0.1%. In the economic news, industrial production declined the most in seven months in September.  

Last session summary: Indian markets continued their up-move for the seventh straight session on Monday with Nifty and Sensex advancing 0.76% and 0.75%, respectively. The broader markets also ended the day in green with Nifty Midcap and Smallcap adding 1.17% and 0.70%, respectively. Among the sectoral indices, Nifty PSU Bank and Metal were the top two gainers. On the flipside, Nifty Pharma and Media were top losers. 

FII’s and DII’s activity on Monday: The same trend has been witnessed for the third straight day in the flow from FIIs and DIIs. The DIIs continued to be the net sellers to the tune of Rs 1,703.87 crore, while on other hand, FIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 512.44 crore.

Important events to watch out for: On the earning front, Hindustan Unilever and Nestle will be in focus.

Interview with Tourism Finance Corporation of India (TFCI)

Interview with TFCI
by 5paisa Research Team 19/10/2021

"TFCI wants to play the role of an investment catalyst for Indian tourism sector"

In conversation with Anirban Chakraborty, Managing Director and CEO, Tourism Finance Corporation of India Ltd(TFCI).  

TFCI’s Q1FY22 net profit stood at Rs 21.20 crore, up by 27.96% from Rs 16.57 crore in Q1FY21. What factors have contributed the most to help you outperform?   

At TFCI, we have focused on expanding our well-diversified portfolio, which has continued to yield good results over the years. Our Net Interest Income increased by 10% YoY to Rs 32 crore from Rs 29 crore with an additional income of Rs 2.4 crore during the quarter, which had mainly driven the net profit of the company. A combination of a broad-based economic revival, substantial decline in active Covid-19 infections and a large segment of the population getting vaccinated across the country has helped in significant recovery for the hospitality sector. Though Q1FY22 was a challenging quarter, owing to partial lockdowns due to the second wave, the gradual reopening saw improvement due to pent-up demand, especially in leisure destinations during the latter part of the quarter.   

Can you throw some light on your plans to utilize the funds (Rs 65.18 crore) recently raised via preferential allotment to marquee investors?  

TFCI being a specialized institution and an industry leader in its segment, is well-positioned to witness a multi-year credit growth. Hence, the raising of Rs 65 crore via preferential allotment to promoter group and marquee investor entities led by Anurag Bagaria (Chairman & CEO, Kemwell Biopharma Private Limited) and P.S Jayakumar (ex-MD & CEO, Bank of Baroda) will go a long way in the strategic expansion of the company. This displays the confidence of the investor community in the business model of TFCI. These funds will be utilized to boost the company’s strong position in the lending ecosystem and to accelerate its strategic priorities. TFCI provides a long-term line of credit to projects in the hospitality segment and the company has the vision to play the role of an investment catalyst for the Indian tourism sector, while also diversifying into other promising segments.   

What are your top strategic priorities for business expansion?  

With the help of large-scale vaccination programs and relaxations being rolled out, the tourism sector is inching its way back to recovery. Various segments of the tourism sector are witnessing a surge in bookings due to pent-up demand from travellers. Also, events like weddings, etc, which were postponed due to lockdown are also driving revenues in a big way. Our foremost priority is to lend to those businesses which have a strong asset cover and steady cashflows which helps us to avoid delinquencies and ensures recovery, even during unexpected events like this pandemic. Also going ahead, the company plans to further diversify its book by lending to the education and healthcare sector as these sectors usually tend to face lesser disruptions in a situation like COVID. These initiatives will help TFCI in building a well-diversified loan book.  

What are your growth levers?  

As per the JLL’s Hotel Momentum India report, the hospitality industry in India witnessed a growth of 84.7% in terms of Revenue Per Available Room during Q2 2021 (April-June) as compared to Q2 2020. With several states across the country adopting relaxed lockdown measures and no quarantine requirements, we expect a further boost in demand for domestic travel.

During the last year, we have also witnessed a structural shift in demand from unorganized hoteliers to larger organized institutions. This was mainly driven by their inability to sustain their operations due to the long Covid-19 induced lockdown, a shift in consumer preferences towards better hygiene, and unavailability of extended credit lines to carry business as usual. These factors have created a demand-supply mismatch in the sector. We expect this supply gap to be met by the larger and steady players, and TFCI being one of the largest lenders to such organizations is poised to grow in the coming future.   

Furthermore, going forward, with economic activities gradually getting back to pre-covid levels we expect improved disbursements activity in various sectors. As of June 30, 2021, our CRAR stood at 41.95% and our recent fundraise will help us to boost our adequacies and aid in further credit dissemination.
