India’s strong recovery is steadily pacing with GDP expected to grow at 7.8% In FY23 and 7.2% in FY24

by 5paisa Research Team 22/11/2021

Consumption is expected to pick up in a broad-based manner from 1Q22 as vaccination rates cover the entire eligible population. Improvement in end demand (consumption and exports) can push capacity utilization rates higher, along with a conducive policy environment which could increase private capex from 2H22. Thus, GDP is expected to grow at 7.8% in FY 2023 and 7.2% in F2024

Headline CPI is expected to increase around 5.8%Y in QE March 2022 as the base effect dissipates and the trailing impact of higher commodity prices feeds in. However, inflation is expected to decelerate from there on account of easing commodity prices on a sequential basis. Thus, CPI inflation is expected to remain steady at 5% YoY in 2022. A persistent cost-push increase related to the supply side and/or a higher increase in demand which creates risks of generalized price pressures all lead to upside risks. Core PCE inflation was 3.9% YoY at the end of FY2021. While core PCE inflation continues at 2.4%Y in December 2022(2.3%Y in 4Q22), the path between now and then is meaningfully higher. Core PCE inflation begins to glide off of its peaks after February next year, 3 before slowing sequentially. By May, core PCE is forecasted at 2.9%Y,2.3%Y, and 2.2%Y on a 12-month,3-month, and 6-month annualized basis, respectively. In 2023, core PCE inflation would moderate further to 2.0%Y by year-end.

The next step in policy normalization following calibrated management of excess liquidity would be narrowing of the policy rate corridor to pre-pandemic levels through a reverse repo hike (15-20bp) in the December and February policy reviews. In a bid to create a business-friendly environment, policymakers have initiated several structural and institutional reforms.

 In addition to the measures taken over the last few years with the implementation of Goods and Services Tax, the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, and an inflation-targeting framework include approval of production-linked incentive schemes for all 13sectors, abolition of the retrospective tax on indirect transfer of assets, the national infrastructure pipeline, national monetization pipeline, etc.
Further, with growth recovery gaining traction, it is anticipated that the RBI will hike the repo rate in 1Q22 in base case. It is expected that the RBI will follow up with rate hikes (25bp) in each of the subsequent meetings in 2022. Risks to a delayed start hinge on the pace of growth recovery. The improvement in growth in gross tax collection has been marked by the onset of economic normalcy from pandemic blows. In this regard, it is expected that the fiscal deficit is to be in line with the government's estimate of 6.8% of GDP, as higher tax revenues could provide some offset to potentially lower divestment receipts and loss of revenue from recent fuel tax cuts.

Risks are expected to emanate from management of Covid, the pace of reaching full vaccination for the adult population, threats from new variants, and/or vaccine efficacy. Prolonged supply-side disruptions leading to a further surge in global commodity prices may accentuate upside risks to the inflation outlook, which may in turn impair growth projections. On the external front, apart from Covid-related disruptions, risks could emerge from a slowdown in global growth, and risk aversion in capital markets in response to faster-than-expected changes in global inflation and the monetary policy trajectory.

At one point in time, Nifty 50 had even breached 17,300 level, however, the last hour of buying helped Nifty to recoup some of the days' losses.

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

Chart Busters: Top trading set-ups to watch out for Tuesday
by 5paisa Research Team 23/11/2021

On the first trading session of the week, the Indian market has witnessed a fierce sell-off as the benchmark index Nifty has tumbled by nearly 2%. The Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 as underperformed benchmark indices. The overall advance-decline was tilted in the favour of the decliners. The Indian Volatility Index (VIX), a gauge for the market’s short-term expectation of volatility, surged by nearly 18% to end at a 17.52 level.

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

Elecon Engineering Co: The stock has formed a Hammer candlestick pattern on the last week of March 2020 and thereafter marked the sequence of higher tops and higher bottoms. From the low of Rs 16.20, the stock has gained over 1100% in just 87 weeks.

On Monday, the stock has marked a fresh 52-week high along with robust volume. Also, the stock has relatively outperformed the frontline indices on Monday. The Relative strength comparison with Nifty 500 and Nifty 50 has also marked higher tops and higher bottoms. As the stock is trading at a 52-week high, all the moving averages based on trade set-ups are showing a bullish strength in the stock. The stock is meeting Mark Minervini’s as well as Daryl Guppy’s multiple moving averages rules. These two set-ups are giving a clear uptrend picture in the stock.

Interestingly, the leading indicator, 14-period daily RSI has given a downward sloping trendline breakout, which is a bullish sign. The daily RSI is currently quoting at 72.70 and it is in rising mode. The daily MACD stays bullish as it is trading above its zero line and signal line. The MACD histogram is suggesting a pickup in upside momentum. 

Considering the robust technical structure of the stock we believe it is likely to continue its upward journey. On the downside, the 20-day EMA is likely to provide the cushion in case of any immediate decline. The 20-day EMA is currently placed at Rs 171.10 level.

Tata Chemicals: The stock has formed a Gravestone Doji pattern as of October 18, 2021, and thereafter witnessed a correction of over 24% in just 10 trading sessions. After registering the low of Rs 876.50, the stock has witnessed counter-trend consolidation for 14 trading sessions, which resulted in the formation of a Bearish Flag pattern.

On Monday, the stock has given a breakdown of a Bearish Flag pattern on the daily chart along with relatively higher volume. Additionally, the stock has formed a sizeable bearish candle on breakout day. Currently, the stock is trading below its short-term moving averages, i.e. 20-day EMA and 50-day EMA levels. These moving averages are edging lower. The leading indicator, RSI is currently quoting 40.30 and it is in falling mode. The fast stochastic is also trading below its slow stochastic line.

Technically, all the factors are currently aligned in support of the bears. Hence, we would advise the traders to be with a bearish bias. Any sustainable move below its 100-day EMA level will lead to a sharp downside move in the stock. The 100-day EMA is currently placed at Rs 871.05 level.

Can we see another rally of Nifty midcap index in the coming days?

Can we see another rally of Nifty midcap index in the coming days?
by 5paisa Research Team 23/11/2021

The NIFTY Midcap 100 Index comprises 100 tradable stocks listed on the National Stock Exchange.

The NIFTY Midcap 100 Index captures the movement of the midcap segment of the market. The NIFTY Midcap 100 Index comprises 100 tradable stocks listed on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) and rescheduling of index constituents happens bi-annually every year. The index heavyweight is Tata Power comprising 3% of the index value. In March 2020, Nifty Midcap 100 made a low of 10750 and ever since, the index has been scaling newer highs and its record high stands at 33243. That’s a stupendous rally of about 209.23% in a matter of 21 months.

The index performance is unmatchable as it delivered returns of 46.89% YTD overperforming Nifty whose performance lies at 24.30% YTD. The three-month performance lies at 13.85% while Nifty delivered a mere 5.35%. Interestingly, the index on Tuesday is up by 1.07%. Thus, we see that the Midcap index has outperformed the Nifty in every aspect.

The index is respecting its long term trendline that started from December 2020 and has taken support multiple times. Currently, the index lies at 30619 and is down by about 8% from its all-time high. It lies near to its trendline and 100-DMA which is at 29400. The last trading session closed below its 20-DMA and 50-DMA. The RSI is at 41 which indicates weakness. Despite the persistent selling pressure in the overall market, the index hasn’t breached its short-term low of 29800. The index is forming a double bottom pattern at around 30000 as it looks to bottom out and gain momentum.

As it trades near its support, any strong bullish candle can mean that the reversal is on cards from hereon. Currently, the next hurdle for the index is to close above its 20 and 50-DMA along with the short-term resistance of 32000. Once done, we can witness some good momentum in the market participant favourite index.

Paytm IPO- Paytm share still trades at 31.52% discount to the issue price despite an 8% gain in intraday trading| What lies ahead?

by 5paisa Research Team 23/11/2021

Paytm IPO has been the biggest IPO in India, to date. The company raised approximately Rs.18,300 crore from the market but lost almost a fourth of its valuation on the listing day itself. The share debuted at a discount of 27.24% on the issue price, which was Rs.2,150 per share.

The share saw a drop of around 40% from its issue price in just two trading sessions, standing at Rs.1381.20 on Monday, 22 November. Paytm’s market value fell by a whopping Rs.56,233 crore after its disastrous debut on Thursday.

After plunging 40%, the share has finally opened with an upside gain of 7% on Tuesday, 23 November. It reported an intra-day high of Rs.1,454.30 on NSE, even then, the experts still maintain their price estimates of Rs.1000-1100 for the share.

The IPO was subscribed only 1.89 times as compared with Nykaa’s subscription of 82 times and Zomato’s 38.25 times. This poor subscription was also an indication of a poor market debut. Even the grey market premiums forecasted a poor market debut. Over the week end, the company released its financial details for October. The Gross Merchandise value increased by 113% and the loan disbursements, which is crucial for the company to turn profitable, increased by 400%. UPI reported a GMV increase of 117% which shows that paytm is just mirroring the industry trend for UPI. The company’s monthly transacting users also increased by 35% YoY to 63 million from 47 million in October 2021.

A scathing “sell” review released by Macquaire research just before the stock was listed stated that the company lacks any focus and direction, and set a target of Rs.1,200. According to the report, Paytm wallets are slowly becoming inconsequential due to the rise of UPI payments and Paytm is dabbling too much in a variety of avenues to concentrate and grow. According to the Macquaire research report, Paytm’s valuation was 26 times its estimated price to sales ration for 2022-2023.

The founder, Vijay Shekhar Sharma’s wealth decreased by over $781 million in just two trading sessions. Before the IPO was listed, Vijay’s share in the company was valued at $2.3 billion.

Why did the stock perform so poorly?

According to the investors, the valuation was highly inflated with a large market float. The company has become a jack of all trades, spreading over different avenues like financial services, movie tickets, fantasy sports, e-commerce and payments. This high diversification meant that there was no focus on growing the company and it was straying away from its main business of being a category leader in the wallets business. The company is also facing stiff competition from companies like Google Pay and Walmart owned Flipkart’s PhonePe.

Market sentiment towards this company is not very strong as it has been continuously making losses since inception along with its lack of focus on a great opportunity of lending.

Also, according to analysts, the valuation of the company has been done mainly by foreign investors who have a higher risk appetite, in contrast to the Indian public that decides whether to invest or not based on profitability and various earnings ratios. Approximately 75% of the initial investors from various countries sold their stakes in the OFS worth Rs.10,000 crore i.e. more than 50% of the value of the IPO. The point that keeps standing out is that Paytm is no longer a market leader in any of its businesses.


Paytm and it’s peers:


Market Cap ($ bn)

EV to Sales (x)

Price to Sales (x)


























What next?

Paytm used to be a leader in the online wallets segment but is now losing its market share to UPI based payments. As mentioned before, Paytm’s inability to improve their profitability through distribution of financial products like mutual funds, insurances etc will prove to provide an edge to its other competitors.

In conclusion, we have seen many fairly valued companies like Latent View Analytics raised Rs.600 crore, Easemytrip raised Rs.510 crores and Policybazaar raised Rs.5,700 cores. Paytm being highly overpriced was in a way punished by the market. A Macquarie research report predicts a price target of Rs.1,200.

Paytm is set to release its Q2FY22 report on 27th November, Saturday.
