Sensex & Nifty To Reach Higher If RBI Lowers Policy Rate

Jul 14, 2017 | 05:07 PM IST

Market This Week:

Market is hitting new all time highs. Nobody is in correction mood. Delivery based volume has increased last week suggesting more optimism in sentiments of investors. Nifty heading towards 10k levels while Sensex is rallying to hit 33k in near terms. Considering IIP numbers and CPI data, possibilities of a rate cut in the upcoming policy has increased. IT giants have started quarter earning season again. TCS and Infosys both companies were on disappointing side of Dalafor the street as far as growth and earnings are concerned.

Movers And Shakers:

Shares of Central Depository Services (India) Ltd (CDSL) surged 122.25% from the issue price of Rs.149 per share in a week after its market debut on 30 June. CDSL’s stellar performance beats a bumper rally in Avenue Supermarts Ltd which listed on 21st March 2017. Shares of maverick investor Radhakishan Damani-promoted Avenue Supermarts, operator of supermarket chain D-Mart, have surged around 200% since the day of listing.

On the other side, Religare Enterprises Ltd slipped nearly 28.36%. Company looked under pressure as India Ratings has flagged off cash crunch at the company. Addition to this, the company has redeemed 1,361 NCDs of face value Rs.10,00,000 each on June 30, as fourth and final redemption.

Key Market Drivers:

Recent data pointing to a slowing in industrial production growth and to a fall in retail price inflation has given room to the Reserve Bank of India to cut its policy rate at the review meeting on August 2, believe many economists and bankers.

The Index of Industrial Production (IIP) expanded 1.7 per cent in May, lower than the revised 2.8 per cent rate in April. Consumer Price Index (CPI) inflation was down to a record low of 1.5 per cent in June from 2.2 per cent the previous month.

Event Watch:

Quarter earnings have started but not the way Dalal Street expected. Post Trump storm, expectations from IT companies are already lower. IIP data added cushion to the India economy. CPI data was way lower than expectation. WPI inflation YoY June reported 0.9% compared to 2.17 in the preceding month. Next monetary policy will be the event to watch as rate cut sentiments are hitting the market now and this could give better rally in coming time.

Stocks To Watch:

Bodal Chemical is on up side while Religare Enterprises Ltd is on downside.
