Top 4 stocks trading near short-term support levels

Top 4 stocks trading near short-term support levels
by 5paisa Research Team 28/10/2021

One of the most basic and crucial part of technical analysis is support and resistance. Here are the top 4 stocks that are trading near their short-term support levels.

When it comes to analyzing a stock based on technical analysis, one of the most fundamental and crucial things is understanding the support and resistance levels. Now, why is it important to look at support and resistance levels? Studying support and resistance levels ideally help you understand the probable level where the price is likely to move in the opposite direction.

So, does it mean that each time when a stock reaches such levels, it would turn back? No, there would be times when the stock might have gathered the strength to break these support and resistance levels. Breaching of such levels ideally mean that the trend is likely to continue in the direction it has breached.

Hence, it is quite important to understand support and resistance levels as it would help you make decisions on short-term trades or would alert you for swing trades. Now the most likely question here would be, how to identify these support and resistance levels? Although technical analysis seems objective in nature, it has got a lot of subjective as well.

Analysing support and resistance level is quite subjective. However, the most basic is to find a level where the stock failed to breach the level maximum number of times. Moving averages are also one of the ways to understand support levels. Many also use Fibonacci retracement and extension for deciding support and resistance levels.

Having said that, here is the list of the top four stocks that are presently trading near their support levels. You should monitor the price action of stock at these levels. This will help you take better entry and exit decisions.

Bajaj Finserv churns out 14% rise in Q2 profit, revenue up 20%

by 5paisa Research Team 28/10/2021

Bajaj Finserv Ltd, the holding arm of Sanjiv Bajaj-led various financial services businesses including insurance and non-banking finance, reported a double-digit rise in earnings as well as revenue for the second quarter ended September 30.

Consolidated net profit rose 13.7% to Rs 1,122 crore from Rs 986 crore in the year-ago period. On a sequential basis, net profit rose 34%.

Consolidated profit excluding mark to market gain was Rs 1,017 crore, up 26% over the same period last year.

The profit growth was largely powered by contribution from the lending unit Bajaj Finance, which saw profit rise over 50% year-on-year. Profit contribution from the insurance businesses was a tad lower compared to last years.

Earlier this month, Bajaj Finance had said its quarterly consolidated net profit jumped 53% to Rs 1,481 crore. The consolidated figure includes results of two subsidiaries—Bajaj Housing Finance Ltd and Bajaj Financial Securities Ltd.

Bajaj Finserv’s total revenue rose 20% to Rs 18,008.4 crore from Rs 15,051.6 crore in the second quarter of last financial year.

The company’s share price has more than tripled in the last one year. The shares declined 0.2% to close at Rs 17,977 apiece after results were announced on Thursday. The broader Mumbai market slumped 1.9%.

Bajaj Finserv Q2: Other Highlights

1) Bajaj Finance’s Q2 FY22 AUM was at Rs 1,669,36.6 crore, up 22% YoY.

2) Bajaj Finance sanctioned 6.33 million new loans in Q2 as against 3.62 million a year earlier.

3) Bajaj Finance’s Gross NPA and Net NPA for the quarter stood at 2.45% and 1.1%, respectively, as against 2.96% and 1.46% as of June 2021.

4) Bajaj Allianz General Insurance’s gross direct premium income grew 21% in Q2 vs private-sector peers that grew by 13.7%

5) Bajaj Allianz General Insurance’ growth was driven by four wheelers, fire, marine, government, health and travel segments.

6) Bajaj Allianz General Insurance’ AUM rose 17% to Rs 24,070 crore; net profit rose 28% to Rs 425 crore.

7) Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance AUM grew by 27% YoY to Rs 81,400 crore.

8)  Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance’s growth in unit-linked AUM stands at 36% to Rs 33,300 crore.

9) Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance’s net profit growth was impacted by Covid-19-related claims, which rose over four times to Rs 58 crore after tax during the quarter.

IndiGo reports wider Q2 loss but flies past estimates; revenue doubles

by 5paisa Research Team 28/10/2021

Budget airline IndiGo has reported higher losses for the second quarter as fuel cost rocketed, but posted earnings and revenue numbers ahead of street estimates.

InterGlobe Aviation, the company that runs IndiGo, posted a consolidated net loss of Rs 1,435.7 crore for the three months ended September 30, up 20% over last year. However, loss more than halved from the first quarter when it had shot up to Rs 3,174.2 crore.

Revenue rose 104.6% to Rs 5,608.5 crore from a year earlier and up 86.5% from the first quarter.

Analysts were expecting the net loss to be in the region of Rs 1,700-1,800 crore during the quarter, largely due to the sharp rise in fuel costs. Revenues were estimated to rise to Rs 5,000-5,200 crore.

IndiGo’s share price declined 0.64% to close at Rs 1,996.8 apiece in a weak Mumbai market on Thursday.

IndiGo Q2: Other highlights

1) Passenger ticket revenues jumped 114% to Rs 4,716.3 crore; ancillary revenue rose 61.45 to Rs 817.7 crore.

2) Fuel cost tripled to Rs 1,989.4 crore from Rs 646.4 crore in Q2 last year. On a sequential basis, fuel cost rose 63.6%.

3) IndiGo recorded EBITDAR of Rs 340.8 crore versus Rs 408.5 crore a year earlier.

4) EBITDAR margin narrowed to 6.1% from 14.9% for the same period last year.

5) Revenue per available seat rose 11.3% to Rs 36 lakh year on year and 32.1% over Q1.

6) Available seat capacity in Q3 is expected to increase around 40% as compared to Q2 and around 45% YoY.

Management Speak

IndiGo CEO Ronojoy Dutta said the pace of revenue recovery is encouraging. “We continue to work towards return to profitability in order to strengthen our balance sheet,” he said.

“With a modern fleet, dedicated employees and a stronger economic environment we are well positioned to leverage all the growth opportunities around us,” Dutta added.

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

Chart Busters: Top trading set-ups to watch out for Friday
by 5paisa Research Team 29/10/2021

The Nifty witnessed a bloodbath on Thursday as Nifty logged a loss of nearly 2% and ended the session below its important psychological mark of 18,000. The price action for the day formed a sizeable bear candle carrying lower high-lower low and closed below the low of October 25th. With Thursday’s sharp fall, Nifty has slipped below the 13-day EMA, 21-day EMA and closed below the 61.8% retracement of the recent up-move from the low of October 01 to an all-time high. The banking benchmark index has tumbled by over 3%. The overall advance-decline was largely tilted in the favour of the decliners. The India VIX has surged by over 6.45%.

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

Asahi India Glass: The stock has formed a Doji candlestick pattern as on the weekend of March 27, 2020, and thereafter marked the sequence of higher tops and higher bottoms. On Thursday, the stock has given a breakout of a downward sloping trendline resistance on the daily chart. Further, on breakout day the volume was expanded by nearly 18 times of 50-days average volume, which indicates important buying interest. The 50-days average volume was 2.18 lakh while today the stock has registered a total volume of 39.29 lakh. In addition, the stock has formed a sizable bullish candle on breakout day, which adds strength to the breakout.

As the stock is near to its 52-week high, it is trading above all the short and long-term moving averages. The stock is meeting the criteria of Mark Minervini’s trend template. The current stock price is above both 150-day (30-weeks) and 200-day (40-weeks) moving average price lines. Moreover, 30 and 40-weekly averages are trending up and at the same time, they are in the desired sequence. Also, the 10-weekly moving average is above both 30 and 40-weekly moving averages.

All the major indicators suggest a bullish momentum in the stock. The weekly RSI is in bullish territory and it is in rising mode. Technically, all the factors are currently aligned in support of the bulls. Hence, we would advise the traders to be with a bullish bias. On the upside, the targets are open towards Rs 448, followed by Rs 480 level. While on the downside, the zone of Rs 398-Rs 387 will act as strong support for the stock.

ABB India: On Thursday, the stock has given a 41-days consolidation breakout on the daily chart. This breakout was supported by robust volume. Currently, the stock is trading above its short and long-term moving averages. These averages are in the desired sequence, which suggests the trend is strong. Interestingly, the daily RSI has broken out of inverse head and shoulders, which is a very bullish sign. The weekly RSI is in the super bullish zone and it is in rising mode. The daily MACD stays bullish as it is trading above its zero line and signal line. The histogram is suggesting a pickup in upside momentum. Moreover, the surge in +DI is suggesting that the trend will strengthen further.

Considering all the above factors, we believe the will continue its northward journey. On the upside, the level of Rs 2066 will act as minor resistance for the stock. While on the downside, the 20-day EMA will act as strong support for the stock.

by 5paisa Research Team 29/10/2021

Activity on the F&O market for the weekly expiry on November 3, 2021, shows 18,000 will act as strong resistance now.

The Indian equity market remained one of the worst-performing markets globally yesterday. This was led by weak global cues along with monthly F&O expiry. Frontline equity index Nifty 50 saw a fall of 2%, the highest fall since April 2021. In terms of sectoral indices Bank Nifty fell by almost 3%. FIIs continued their selling spree and have sold equity worth Rs 10,000 crore in the last five trading sessions.

Activity on the F&O market for the weekly expiry on November 3, 2021, shows 18,000 will act as strong resistance now. The highest put writing was seen at strike price of 17000 (20,552 contracts added on October 28), followed by 17,500 (17039 contracts added on October 27), while there was put unwinding at strike price 18200 (3324 contracts shed), followed by 18,250 (1026 contracts shed). Highest total put open interest (31010) stood at a strike price of 18,000. Although Nifty is trading below this level, it is likely that in the next few trading sessions market is likely to move towards the 18,000 level. This is followed by a strike price of 17,000, which saw a total put option of 27,767 contracts, while a strike price of 17,500 has 27,363 contracts in open interest.
