RBI keeps interest rates on hold. 10 things you need to know

by 5paisa Research Team 08/10/2021

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on Friday kept the benchmark repo rate unchanged, even as it lowered its forecast for consumer price inflation and retained India’s gross domestic product (GDP) growth target at 9.5%.

Here are 10 important things that the central bank said in its latest bi-monthly monetary policy.

1) The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) has kept the repo rate at 4%, for the eighth straight time. The reverse repo rate will continue to be at 3.35%.

2) The MPC has maintained an “accommodative” stance as far as its outlook goes.

3) Since March 2020, the month India went into a nationwide lockdown to control the spread of Covid-19, the repo rate has been brought down by 115 basis points. Since 2019, the rate is down 135 basis points. 

4) Food inflation is likely to remain muted, the central bank’s governor Shaktikanta Das said.

5) Real GDP growth for the first quarter of FY2022-23 is pegged at 17.2%.

6) RBI retained gross domestic product (GDP) growth target at 9.5% for FY2021-22.

7) RBI lowered CPI inflation projections to 5.3% for this fiscal year from the earlier estimate of 5.7%.

8) The RBI wants a framework for retail digital payments in offline mode to be instituted. It also wants a framework on geotagging technology on all payment infrastructure, existing or new.

9) RBI said a new internal Ombudsman Scheme for addressing grievances of customers of non-banking finance companies will be set up.

10) Transaction limit for Immediate Payments Service (IMPS) has been hiked to Rs 5 lakh from Rs 2 lakh.

These Penny Stocks are locked in the Upper Circuit on Friday.
by 5paisa Research Team 08/10/2021

Penny stocks reflect the market sentiment to an extent. When you have a broad-based outperformance in penny stocks, you can say that a risk-on rally is happening in the markets.

The Sensex is trading with gains above 400 points and is comfortably sustaining above the crucial 60000 levels.

The IT stocks are catching investors’ attention on Friday with Mindtree and Persistent Systems gaining by more than 5% each on an intraday basis. IT bellwether Infosys and TCS feature amongst the top Sensex gainers on Friday.

BSE IT index is the top sectoral gainer followed by the BSE Metal index. The metal index is supported by Tata Steel, after gaining more than 2%, and is also the top Sensex gainer.

The broader markets however are seen underperforming the frontline indices on Friday.

The market is also cheering the announcement by the RBI where the rates have been kept unchanged. A favourable than anticipated inflation trajectory and downward revision of CPI at 5.30% has allayed any fears of near-term rate hikes. The Governor has assured the markets of ample liquidity while announcing higher VRRRs to absorb the excessive systemic liquidity. The market expected the accommodative stance to continue by the RBI.

With positive sentiment in the market, further supported by the RBI announcement, several penny stocks are outperforming the market on Friday. Few of the trending penny stocks are seen locked in the upper circuit.

Here is the list of penny stocks that are locked in the upper circuit in Friday's trading session:

Top ten companies where FIIs increased their stake sequentially.

Top ten companies where FIIs increased their stake sequentially.
by 5paisa Research Team 08/10/2021

There is no direct correlation between the rise in FIIs holding and share price performance at least in a shorter duration.

Big investors such as mutual funds and FIIs are considered smart investors. Any increase in their activity gives retail investors an indication that the company is likely to perform better going ahead and there is a likely increase in its share prices. Hence, we thought of analysing the companies where foreign institutional investors (FIIs) have increased their stake in the June 2021 quarter (quarter-on-quarter). We have not applied any filtration other than the increase in FIIs holding on a Q-o-Q basis. Therefore, companies with different market caps have appeared on the list.

Stock Name  

FII holding change QoQ %  

Shareholding Date  

YTD Change (%)  

Sakar Healthcare Ltd.  




5Paisa Capital Ltd.  




Kiri Industries Ltd.  




Newgen Software Technologies Ltd.  




Paisalo Digital Ltd.  




Finkurve Financial Services Ltd.  




Choice International Ltd.  




Capacit'e Infraprojects Ltd.  




SE Power Ltd.  




Coforge Ltd.  




Sakar Healthcare that is listed on NSE has witnessed the highest rise in the holdings by FIIs on a sequential basis. They have increased their stake by 8.76 per cent. The stock is very volatile and was down by 24 per cent in the month of August 2021.

Nevertheless, its year till date share price is up by 73% due to better performance in the earlier part of the year. It is still down by 18% from the high reached earlier this year.

There is no direct correlation between the rise in FIIs holding and share price performance at least in a shorter duration.

For example, Kiri Industries Ltd and Capacit'e Infraprojects are the two companies where FIIs have increased their stakes, however, their price performance is dismal. SE Power, a penny stock, whose share price has more than doubled since the start of the year has seen FIIs increase stake by almost 5%.

The fundamental story of this multibagger stock has been like never before. It witnessed one of the best ever financial performances in its history for FY21. The YoY net sales jumped by 23.2% to Rs 3,176 crore in FY21. The economies of scale fueled the margins and boosted EBITDA growth by 46.8% to Rs 668 crore. The net profit too improved to Rs 415 crore, growth of 65% due to shifted focus on selling high margin products.

In 2020, it forayed into the water tank business to explore the huge 'tank' of opportunities worth Rs 65,000, with the acquisition of brand ‘Sarita’. The pipes sector is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.3% over the next five years. This multibagger company has also been focused on building a strong brand proposition through marketing activities such as hosting Ranveer Singh as its brand ambassador, being official partners and sponsors to IPL teams like Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals.

While IT, pharma, FMCG have been the saviours for markets over the past year and have been the highlights, this sector too has shown promise and should be on your watchlist.
