Time To Go For Value Over Momentum, Market To Remain Rangebound

IT, Pharma, Metal Stocks Push Markets to New Highs

Our Analysis

Indian share market since the budget announcement has been in the trap of the bears, albeit the budget was more convincing for long term vision rather than a short term action. We believe the government had planted the seeds for future success in Union Budget yet its failed to excite the market instantly. At the beginning of the week, the d-street witnessed one of the biggest falls in the decade.

Despite, Bank recapitalization and addressing the NBFC issue had been positive, Mostly, these weeks the steering wheel was in the hand of the Bears as the quarrel of the high-rich tax for the people earning more than 3 or 5 Cr, additionally the tax on buyback & the proposal to raise the minimum public shareholding limit to 35 percent cursed the market sentiment. Besides this, companys with a healthy market cap and liquidity witnessed a wild swing in the stock price. Bajaj finance & Finserv haunted by the slowdown concern witnessed one of the sharpest fall in 5 months, Addition to the list is Titan ahead, indicating the muted growth and Indigo with the corporate issue also witnessed a plunging in the share price.

At present market are trading near its support levels so any violation of this level can emerge one more wave of selling in the market.
