Tough phase for the Indian Economy
2008-06-07 00:00:00
Market melts down totally on the back of rising inflation, global food crisis and boiling crude oil prices. India is suffering from a lot of factors such as increasing fiscal deficit due to tons of subsidies, political pressure on the home ground, inflationary pressure to name a few. Selling on part of the FIIs and bearish sentiment of the investors have kept the market in pressure as selling has been witnessed from the last couple of weeks. Nifty 50 had broken the psychology level of 4800 and even 4600 and it is likely to break even 4200 mark. Now the question is where will we stop? Lots of analysts are advising in the front of value buying or bottom fishing. Blue chip shares are available at a price of nothing. It is the high time to invest for the long term view. Still we can see the shortage of investors on the bourses. The sentiment is so bearish that everyone might be thinking that market will move more in the southward direction. Oil marketing companies are losing Rs. 620 cro...

Banking stocks are in panic?
2008-04-06 00:00:00
Galloping inflation rate has spread a lack of confidence among the investors towards the banking stocks. It has also become expected to be a further hike in the interest level on part of the central banking authority, RBI, to combat the increasing price level. Govt. of India in addition might be concerned with the domestic real economic growth rate amidst a higher annual inflation trajectory. Inflation is one of the mostly focused macro-economic variables that most of the economies are watching it very closely. The reasons can be listed as, falling dollar value in terms of Euro and Yen and so higher crude oil prices, prices of food staples such as rice, wheat, soybeans and palm oil are rising worldwide. Asian Development Bank has estimated that inflation to reach at a highest level in a last decade. The expectation is indeed reflecting the truth as Chine witnessed inflation at a fastest pace in 11 years; Consumer prices in Sri Lanka and Vietnam have increased 20 percent; Indian annu...

Geared up market through passive investment?
2008-03-31 00:00:00
Prolonged recessionary phase and selling pressure has made the existing stocks less attractive, starting from the frontline to the mid sized and small sized stocks. Though it seems to be an accumulation phase, overall panic and global bourses instability resisting the long-term investors to put their bet. In fact, the major chunk is waiting for the next Bull Run; after all it’s their hard earned money. Passive investments vehicle like mutual funds have also suffered largely on account of the sharp fall in stock market since January 2008. Fund managers are also cautious in making investments for a long run perspective. Retail investors are the worst hit compared to the other segment. Remaining out of the market has become a normal phenomenon. Lower NAV value at current level would attract a lot of investors towards index funds, equity diversified funds and other comparatively well performed funds at the last year and they are looking attractive at their present NAV value.

Bear gripped the market?
2008-03-08 00:00:00
I won’t say that market is in the grip of bear phase. But the situation does indicate in that direction. Since the last circuit on 21st January 2008, market has hardly witnessed any prolonged bull phase. Weak global sentiment and the similar performance of Asian peers have jointly made the situation poorer. Market continuously in a falling phase; hardly any buyer to participate in the market. Similar is the case of FIIs. They are literally out of the market. Moreover, the Railway and the General Budget left no space to lift the investors sentiment, except some impetus to the domestic software, fire protection equipments and other technical industries related to the railway development and upgradation. It was totally a budget for the people, with lots of offers and subsidies. Short-term capital gains tax rate has been increased from 10% to 15%. This has affected adversely in the investors mind. Next year’s assembly election compelled the policy makers to prepare such a flat budget wi...

Range Bound Market in near-term
2008-02-17 00:00:00
Indian stock market would realize a range bound trading session at least in near term trading session. The budget will have minor impact in both sides. And as the market is already sold off, there are hardly any knee-jerk that could affect the Indian investors in this market scenario. The glamorous IPO/primary has lost the earlier attraction as front-line share are available at a much cheaper rate. Withdrawal of subscription on part of the FIIs has made the situation more bitter. Retail investors are guided usually by the move of FIIs. So, lack of any genuine trigger to this market will keep it in a range bound mood. Market is consolidating in real terms and fresh buying will be witnessed at the middle of the year 2008. That will lead to a well poised market in 2009. Overall this could be a good time to enter for the fresh investors (older investors are already dead by virtue of down circuit and margin call sell-off). V-Day have pushed the market up leaving a mild smile to the marke...

RBI Credit Policy: Kept all the prime rates unchanged
2008-02-01 00:00:00
For the past few days, market participants and players are desperately waiting for the upcoming announcements among which RBI’s monetary policy review and ‘two-day’ Federal Reserve meeting schedules were in top priority. A positive rate was always present somewhere in everybody’s mind, specially after a rate cut in US on 75bps to 3.50% and the down circuit of Indian stock market. Investors had an expectation towards a boost to the market on part of the Government. The investors having significant amount of losses are more keen to see a rate cut. Fact: In realty, there was no rate cut on behalf of the RBI in its 4th quarter credit policy review. CRR, Repo rate and Reverse Repo rate were unchanged at 7.50%, 7.75% and 6% respectively. The initial repercussion reflected as Nifty gone down Negative and the Nifty bank index was around 300 points down. The boiling crude oil price and inflation rate were certainly played some crucial role in RBI’s mind before this policy announcements. Inf...

Yet another Down Circuit
2008-01-24 00:00:00
The horror show of Monday 21st January, still continued and market saw yet another 10% down circuit yesterday after 17th October 2007 on account of P-Note issue, taking cue of the weak Asian peers and US recession fears. Market opened and resulted in a trading halt within few seconds. Market reopened at 10.55 am and big recovery had been observed as market rebounded 4% from low. Time to time short Bull Run was observed during the mid session of the market but failed to recover substantially to offset the early loss. Market was in a grip of bearish sentiment through out the day. In-built panic and severe volatility sustained till the end of the day. As a result hardly any kind of aggressive buying was seen despite frontline stocks were available at an attractive price and valuation. Late hour short covering pushed market up by nearly 300 points. The other reasons worked behind this huge fall could be explained in terms of In-Line third quarter results, Citigroup's fear of bankruptcy...

Good Buying Opportunity for the Investors
2008-01-21 00:00:00
Form the last few days market is in a panic situation. Huge selling pressure has been observed throughout all the sectors irrespective of the large, mid or small caps. Poor job data in US and expected recession in that market pulled down all the global markets at one shot. And Indian stock market is not an exception to that. All the global markets are now interlinked among each other. Any problem in one market is quickly reflected to another market in no time. Within 10 days, Nifty saw a correction of almost 9% and Sensex had an correction of 10%. This could be great opportunity for the long term investors. Also the primary market premium has been vanished for the reason that secondary market prices become cheaper. But be cautious here. Concentrate only on the front line mid cap, no small cap. Today also had a correction of 150 points at first few minutes of trade. Sensex dropped 300 points. Moreover, the FII selling has made the overall situation more worse. Huge selling ...

Poor US Emplyment Data
2008-01-08 00:00:00
The poor job data pulled down the US market. Dow fell more than 250 points on Friday. Dollar fell mostly on that day deepened the recession fear among the investors. Unemployment jumped from 4.7 percent to 5 percent last month, reaching its highest level since November 2005. To avoid the expected recession, Fed may cut the interest rate on 25bps. Lower interest rate may give a boost to the economy. "When unemployment rises by more than half a percent from its cycle low, a recession generally ensues, the economy has now performed that trick. This is a report that should worry the Fed " said Robert Brusca, chief economist at New York-based Fact and Opinion Economics.Today all the Asian markets are down taking cue from the US and European markets. And Indian market is also expected to open down in the morning. When everyone is expected for a correction in the Indian Stock Market, this could be an excuse for the investors and the retailers for the long term buy.

Chevron deciding on its RPL stake
2007-12-13 00:00:00
Global petroleum giant Chevron is evaluating different options regarding the stake it holds in Reliance Petroleum (RPL), a refinery business promoted by the Mukesh Ambani led Reliance Industries Group (RIL). Chevron holds 4 per cent stake in RPL with an option of extending the holding to 29 per cent by July’ 09.Price of RPL shares is rising pretty abruptly and has tripled from the IPO issue price since its listing. It was issued in mid-2006 at 60/- and on 27th November’ 07 the counter closed at 198/- per share. Such huge appreciation in share prices has cropped up different problems for Chevron.Firstly, this price surge has increased capital gains on the shares, which Chevron is currently holding. Secondly, RIL has recently sold 4 per cent of its stake in RPL. This has extended another option for Chevron in booking profits on their existing position. Thirdly, if Chevron wants to increase their stake then it will cost them a hefty sum of approx US$ 5.5 billion following the price app...
The Fed Rate Cut at 0.25 basis points
2007-12-13 00:00:00
The US Federal Reserve cut rates by a quarter percentage to 4.25%; Also cuts discount rate by 25 bps to 4.75% The US Federal Reserve lowered its benchmark interest rate by a quarter point to 4.25%, while signaling that it is open to further cuts if the housing slump and credit squeeze worsen. The central bank also cut the discount rate by a quarter point to 4.75%, counter to speculation among investors that the Fed would make a deeper reduction. The effect has already been seen in the world market context. The expected rally in those markets have already been discounted and almost all the markets are in their high levels. So we could also expect a bit down opening in the Indian Stock Market. Our market is also in the all time high level. No further rally is expected due to the US market rate cut. And from here the market might stay in a range bound mood for the next two months or so. But good third quarter result for the companies here might give a good push to the market in the mon...

Facts in October EXIM data
2007-12-07 00:00:00
Export-Import data for the month of October 2007 has come out with mixed colours. Total export has increased by 35% and stood at US$ 10 billion for the month of October. It is undoubtedly a stunning improvement on the back of steep appreciation in Indian rupee (INR). Despite such improvement, the data is not much encouraging since deeper introspection would reveal different story. As per sectoral numbers, textiles export has declined by 22%, marine goods export dropped by 20%, handicrafts export went down by 66% and leather goods export declined by 9%. These are the sectors those absorb majority of labour force. As per the government officials, the jump in export figure for the month can be attributed to the increase in value of petroleum-export in rupee term as the crude prices are going up globally. Majority of the positive change export figures have come from manufacturing sectors, which are quite capital intensive. Continuing onslaught of domestic sectors, engaged in export, has...

Soaring Oil prices: The Indian case
2007-12-04 00:00:00
The oil price is soaring from the last couple of months all over the world driven by the political factors and the speculative ones rather than any fundamental reasons. The political uncertainty in the Middle East such as Turkey's threatened strike on Iraq have added a premium of as much as $20 to oil prices, push the rising oil price to an unexpected level of US$ 100 mark per barrel in the international market. These rising oil prices have made the global investors to pull US$ 200 million from the Indian based funds. And this has been reflected from the last few days over the Indian stock market. The market was dull, range bound, volatile. The most affected were the small retail traders. The cost as well as the prices is being driven up but not that much as it was expected. The most likely reason is that the appreciating rupee has offset the Oil cost but not totally to the extent in the rise in the Oil price. Soaring Oil price posed a threat to the general mass towards a rise in t...

Participatory Notes Issue - Long Term Benefit
2007-10-25 00:00:00
PNs are instruments similar the to contract notes issued by registered FIIs to overseas clients, or issued by the central authority to the unregistered FIIs who are not eligible to directly invest in the Indian capital market. The instruments are issued against an underlying security thereby helping the holder to benefit from the capital appreciation or income from that underlying security.In an attempt to slow FII inflows, capital market regulator Sebi proposed a complete ban on the issue of overseas derivatives instruments (ODIs) like participatory notes (PNs) and other papers with immediate effect. This proposal has resulted in the 1 hour trading halt (down circuit and this is my first experience live with this trading halt) in the stock market on 17th October just after few seconds the market opened. NIFTY dragged down to 10% discounting the uncertainty as well as the panic created buy the P-Notes issue. In fact bearish investors were waiting for some issue to make the sensex do...

2007-10-18 00:00:00
We have reached another landmark of 19000 yesterday on 15-10-2007. It took 4 trading sessions to reach at this level from 18000 marks. And top five stocks (RIL, LT, ICICI, BHARTIARTL, ONGC) have contributed the 60% rally of the SENSEX. So the market is at the highest level and trading strategy would be of great concern at this level. The following strategies would be helpful for the retail investors:1. Do not hold large positions. 2. Put Stop Loss for intra day trading. 3. Do not short, strictly avoid that. 4. Move with the market and with the scrip…remain long when increasing. 5. Keep patience, as market will move up certainly in near future.6. Play with Index stocks – remain on safer side.Market may move forward and may touch newer and newer highs. As inflation is under control and further rate cut might be seen by the Govt. In addition, heavy FII buying and anticipation of robust set of earnings will trigger the solid rally. This is the month of results as well. This will be ...

Developed market saturation drives Indian market
2007-10-11 00:00:00
From 16000 sensex mark to 17000 in only 5 daysFrom 17000 to 18000, it took 8 days.And to this 5 top stocks have contributed 60% of the rally.So the Market is at the peak level, without any major trigger like Results, Policy announcements etc. FIIs flow is coming like anything and dollar value is moving within the range of 39.30 to 39.55. But expectation is that, it will break the 39 level within short term range. That would be another reason for headache for Govt. Though the inflation level is quite low (around 3.42%).What might be the reasons that FIIs are bullish on the emerging market counters?Saturation to the developed country is the most possible reason to be high in these markets. As there is a big scope to expand for the emerging markets specially the Indian and the China market. In addition, these two countries rank 3rd and 2nd respectively in terms of the purchasing power and real prices. Product diversification has reached to the optimum level in the developed countries.F...
Great closing by the indexes: NIFTY 5000, Sensex 17000
2007-10-01 00:00:00
Today for the First time Nifty closed above 5000 mark and Sensex closed 17000 historical mark. Nifty took 203 days to reach this level from the previous one that is 4000 mark. And surprisingly Sensex reached 17000 from 16000 within 6 days. The market is on a roll...lots of analysts are forcasting that the Sensex will reach the level of 20000 within 4 to 6 months time. Even Mr. Samir Arora is bullish on the market in this situation. In an interview at CNBC he argued that within December we could see more upward movement in both of the Index. At least the situation would be more better from now. Though the appreciating rupee is still a concern for the RBI as well as for the exporters and the IT exporting companies. But it is good for the economy in the long run. Good managements will have no problem in hedging the rupee. Also they will revise the contract certainly expecting more appreciation in the rupee.

Why to Invest in the Stock Market
2007-09-13 00:00:00
Stock represents ownership of a company. If a company is privately held, then its stock may be owned by only a few individuals and is not available for purchase by the public. If a company is publicly held, then its stock can be purchased through stockbrokers by individual investors and institutions alike. Corporations can issue different types of stock, but the most typical is common stock.There are 3 fundamental reasons to invest: 1) Cash Flow2) Tax Protection3) Growth.Best long-term returns:Putting the most important reason first, over the long haul no other asset class will increase your net worth better than stocks. Bonds or CD's may look attractive at this moment because of their stability, but over almost any multi-year period they will provide you with a lower return than stocks.Companies buy back a lot of their own stock:One of the key drivers of stock prices is an earnings per share, or EPS, which is a simple calculation of total earnings divided by outstanding shares.

ECB curbs give a upward push to the market
2007-09-07 00:00:00
From the last couple of months the raising Rupee value was really a big concern for the exporters, IT companies and also for the Government. The revenue of the IT companies reported a declining trend in the first quarter result. Small exporters made huge loss. In addition the inflow of foreign cash flows to the economy made the inflation more worsen. The cash inflow in terms of External commercial Borrowings (ECB) did the icing on the cake. Govt. intervenes to fix two things first.1. To control the level of rising Inflation and 2. To protect the currency for further rise so as to protect the exporters and their corresponding earnings.Reserve bank of India has announced some restrictions on the ECB's. A company can raise money from abroad, where the rate of interest is lower in comparison to the domestic borrowing market, but restricted to 20 million dollars.This restriction will reduced the inflow of dollars to the country and might help to improve the US$ vs. INR exchange rate.

2007-08-30 00:00:00
The recent market collapse in a consecutive sessions was due to the Subprime mortgage lending crisis in the US market. And most of the investors in Indian stock market are aware of the fact. However, they might don’t know what exactly the Subprime mortgage lending is. It generally refers to the practice of offering housing mortgage loans to the people who do not have a good credit rating history.
