Confused about which stock to buy from the Life Insurance sector? We will help you out!

Confused about which stock to buy from the Life Insurance sector? We will help you out!
by 5paisa Research Team 16/11/2021

The life insurance sector of India has come into the limelight since the pandemic as more and more people opt for life insurance cover for their dear ones. The data suggested that new clients have been added by the life insurance companies and premiums receivables have been increased significantly post Covid.

We’ll now move to the meat of the matter and check which stock out of these three looks technically sound?

First, let’s check out the performance of these stocks: HDFC Life has gained 5.76% on a YTD basis and in the last three months it has advanced 6.22%, while SBI Life has jumped 28.48% on a YTD basis and 2% in the last three months. ICICI PruLife has risen 32.15% on a YTD basis and -1.87% per cent in the last three months.

From the above data, we have observed that ICICI PruLife has been the top performer on a YTD basis but it has been a performer for the short term. HDFC Life has done well in the short term.

The Life insurance stocks have corrected slightly as all of them traded below their all-time high. HDFC Life is down 8% from its high, while SBI Life and ICICI PruLife are down by 9.1% and 9.2% respectively. Only HDFC life is currently trading above its key moving averages, whereas SBI Life and ICICI PruLife are trading below its 50-DMA. SBI Life is trading below its 20-DMA, showing short term weakness. The RSI of all three is at 57, 45 and 54 respectively. Volumes in HDFC life are increasing steadily in the last few trading sessions while volumes are flat in other stocks as they are consolidating.

Thus, from the above analysis, we can conclude that traders can look for opportunities in HDFC Life for the short to medium term. One can think about investing in such good quality life insurance stocks as the future for the insurance sector is bright in India.

Coromandel International to set up sulphuric acid plant at Vishakhapatnam

Coromandel International to set up sulphuric acid plant at Vishakhapatnam
by 5paisa Research Team 16/11/2021

Aligned with the Government of India’s mission of making the country self-reliant, this plant shall help reduce import dependency by increasing the availability of phosphatic fertiliser.

Coromandel International Limited, an Indian company engaged in the business of fertilizers, pesticides and speciality nutrients, announced today that it has commenced setting up a new sulphuric acid plant at its fertiliser complex in Visakhapatnam.

The company has also entered into technology partnership agreements with MECS (Monsanto Enviro-Chem Systems) and TKIS (ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions). 

This plant shall incur a cost of Rs 400 crore and have a designed capacity of 1650 metric tons per day. It is being set up within the company’s existing Visakhapatnam plant premises and on par with global best technology standards to control emissions. The design of the plant is such that the steam generated from the process shall also be used for captive power generation. This development is aligned with the company’s s long term objective of securing key raw materials for its fertiliser production.

How significant is this development?

Looking at the statistics, India is a net importer of sulphuric acid and the third-largest importer globally. It accounts for approximately 20 lakh metric tons of imports. While the company has a sulphuric acid production capacity of 6 lakh metric tons per annum, the new plant shall further enhance the capacity by 5 lakh metric tons per annum, bringing the total production capacity to 11 lakh metric tons per annum. Thus, the new plant shall help reduce the import dependence considerably and ensure sustainable production of Phosphoric acid, which is one of the key raw materials for phosphatic fertiliser manufacturing.

At the closing bell on Tuesday, the share price of Coromandel International Limited was trading at Rs 800.4, which was an increase of 0.67 per cent from the previous day’s closing price of Rs 795.05 on BSE.

Closing Bell: Nifty ends below 18000, Sensex falls by 396 points
by 5paisa Research Team 16/11/2021

On Tuesday, weakness in consumer and pharmaceutical shares pulled the headline indices lower, but gains in automobile and IT securities prevented further losses.

Domestic equity benchmarks fell on Tuesday due to selling pressure in index heavyweights like ICICI Bank, Reliance Industries, HDFC twins, ITC, State Bank of India and Axis Bank. During today's trading session, the Sensex fell as much as 519 points and Nifty 50 index slipped below the important psychological level of 18,000. The rising wholesale inflation has let down investors sentiment according to market experts.

At the closing bell on Tuesday, the Sensex closed down by 396.3 points or 0.7% at 60,322.4 and the broader Nifty 50 benchmark slipped below to settle at 17,999.2, down 110.3 points or 0.6% from its previous close.

Top losers on the NIFTY 50 index were Shree Cements, Reliance Industries, Hindalco Industries, Tata Consumer Products and SBI. Top gainers on Tuesday were Maruti Suzuki, M&M, Tata Motors, Hero MotoCorp and Tech Mahindra. 

On a sectoral basis, the PSU Bank index shed 2%, while Nifty Bank, Energy and Pharma indices closed down 1% each. Outperformer for the day was the Auto index which gained over 2%. In the broader markets, the BSE midcap index was down 0.22%, while the smallcap index ended with marginal gains.

In the news today was India's annual wholesale price-based inflation which in October accelerated to a five-month high of 12.54% from September's 10.66%. It was pushed up by higher increases in fuel and manufacturing prices, according to government data.

Among the trending stock of the day was Mumbai-based real estate developer Macrotech Developers which zoomed by 12.5% to hit a record high of Rs 1,443.60.
