Indian markets:

  • Indian benchmark indices, the Sensex and the Nifty, reached new all-time highs on April 9.
  • However, they couldn’t sustain the gains due to profit booking ahead of the release of important inflation data for both India and the US.
  • In terms of sectors, auto, capital goods, FMCG, energy, infrastructure, oil and gas, and pharma saw losses ranging from 0.3 to 1 percent.
  • Conversely, the banking, metals, and realty indices experienced gains of 0.3 to 1 percent.

Global Markets:

  • European markets experienced declines on Tuesday as investors awaited upcoming key economic data, particularly U.S. inflation figures scheduled for release on Wednesday.
  • There is ongoing speculation about a potential rate cut in March, with CME’s FedWatch tool indicating approximately a 50% chance of such an action. However, Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari recently suggested the possibility of zero rate cuts this year if inflation persists.
  • Overnight, U.S. stock futures showed minimal movement, while Asia-Pacific markets displayed a mixed performance as investors anticipated consumer confidence data from Japan

Stocks in Spotlight

  • Infosys stock saw a rise of over 1.39 percent following an upgrade from BofA, which shifted its rating on the IT services company from “neutral” to “buy”. The global brokerage also increased the target price for Infosys to Rs 1,785 from Rs 1,735, citing attractive valuations. This adjustment suggests an 18 percent potential upside from the current levels.
  • Ajmera Realty witnessed a surge of over 5 percent following its announcement that sales had surpassed Rs 1,000 crore in FY24. In the March quarter alone, the company experienced a doubling in sales value to Rs 287 crore, marking a remarkable 104 percent increase from the same period last year. Additionally, collections for the quarter amounted to Rs 197 crore, reflecting a substantial 91 percent rise compared to the previous year.
  • Gland Pharma’s stock witnessed a decline of over 2 percent following a block deal worth Rs 1,590 crore. Reports from Moneycontrol indicated that two entities associated with the former promoter of the company, Dr. Ravi Penmetsa, namely Nicomac Machinery Private Ltd and RP Advisory Services Private Ltd, were planning to sell a 4.4 percent stake in the pharmaceutical company.
  • FMCG stocks faced significant losses, emerging as some of the poorest performers, despite benchmark indices reaching new highs in their ongoing record surge. Hindustan Unilever, Colgate, Marico, UBL, Tata Consumer, Godrej Consumer Products, and Britannia all saw declines of up to 2 percent, in contrast to the 0.4 percent rise in the Nifty index. Analysts’ warnings about a lackluster fourth quarter for FMCG companies, attributed to sluggish rural growth, delayed winter, and increased competition, prompted caution among investors, contributing to the downtrend in FMCG stocks.
