Post Market Commentary - March 13 2008

The Indian market closed in deep red territory backed by the global concerns that whether the US Federal Reserve initiative to infuse $200bn into the global finance system will bring a shy of relief to the credit markets. This led to the heavy selling pressures across the sectoral indices. Tracking the weak global cues, the domestic market opened with a huge gap down and kept on drifting down further throughout the trading session. Due to the lack of investors interests in buying, the market kept on hovering in the trading session. From the sectoral front, metal, realty and capital goods indices were the most hit as heavy selling was witnessed from these baskets. The BSE Sensex closed lower 770.63 points at 15,357.35 and NSE Nifty fell by 248.4 points to close at 4,623.60. From the Sensex pack, 29 stocks closed in red and the Sensex touched an intraday low of 15,228.99. The BSE Mid Cap and Small Cap also closed lower by 382.18 points and 456.74 points at 6,527.67 and 8,075.18 respectively.

The Metal index declined by 1314.95 points to close at 14,373.96. Major losers are SAIL (11%), Jindal Steel (9.97%), Sesa Goa (9.71%), Tata Steel (9.04%), Jindal Stainless (8.44%).

The Capital Goods index closed lower by 792.22 points at 13,309.34. Major losers are Kirloskar BR (10.67%) in line with Suzlon Energy (10.61%), Alstom Projects (9.49%), Praj inds (8.29%), BHEL (6.63%) and L&T (4.60%).

The Oil and Gas index fell by 620.12 points to close at 10,021.97 as Cairn India (12.17%), RNRL (11.41%), Essar oil (10.72%), RPL (6.70%), Reliance Inds (5.66%) closed lower.

The Bankex index dropped by 478.05 points to close at 8,076.80 as Kotak bank (9.65%), Cent BOP (7.07%), Yes bank (6.48%), SBI (6.21%), Union bank (5.89%), ICICI bank (4.77%) closed in red.

The IT index closed lower by 160.50 points at 3,311.91 as Educomp solutions (11.48%), Karut Net (9.99%), Finance Tech (8.68%), Niit Techno (8.20%), Wipro (6.37%) and Infosys (3.65%) closed lower.

Market sinks on bear hammering

The market went into a complete tailspin as the much awaited correction shaved nearly 900 points off the Sensex during the intra-day trades. Positive global cues like oil prices cooling off further failed to lift the sentiment, as investors instead tracked the falling Asian indices since early trades. After resuming on a weak note at 15,873, the market continued to remain negative and remained under the bear hug for the rest of the session. The Sensex nearly slipped below 15,200 towards the close as a wave of selling in heavyweights, realty, metal, consumer durables and power stocks saw it slump to an intra-day low of 15,229. The Sensex finally ended 4.78% lower or down 771 points at 15,357, while the Nifty crashed 248 points to close at 4,624. Among the Asian indices, Nikkei tanked 3.33% (down 428 points) at 15,794, Hang Seng dropped 4.79% (down 1,121 points) at 22,302 and Kospi was down 2.60% (down 43 points) at 1,616.

The market breadth was extremely negative, Of the 2,708 stocks traded on the BSE, 2,332 stocks declined, 345 stocks advanced and 31 stocks ended unchanged. All the sectoral indices took sharp beatings. The BSE Reality index bore the major brunt and crashed 11.59% at 7,362 while the BSE Metal index, the BSE CD index, the BSE Power index, the BSE PSU index and the BSE Bankex index dropped over 4-8% each.

Except Hind Utilites, all the 29 stocks in the Sensex pack ended in the red. Among the major losers DLF tumbled 14.87% at Rs607, Reliance Energy slumped 9.87% at Rs1,197, Hindalco crumbled 9.44% at Rs173.70, Tata Steel plunged 9.04% at Rs697.20, Reliance Communications dropped 7.07% at Rs501.45, BHEL declined 6.63% at Rs1,882.80 and Wipro fell 6.37% at Rs365. Other frontline stocks also dropped over 3-6% each.

Over 2.59 crore RNRL shares changed hands on the BSE followed by V Guard (1.90 crore shares), RECLTD (1.70 crore shares), Ispat Industries (1.42 crore shares) and RPL (1.29 crore shares).

Valuewise, Reliance Industries clocked a turnover of Rs282 crore followed by RNRL (Rs277 crore), HDFC (Rs275 crore), RPL (Rs204 crore) and Essar Oil (Rs186 crore).

Market Close: Deepening weakness

It was an extremely worst day for Indian markets with Sensex breaching the January lows of 15332 and closed at low August 31 2007, Nifty closed at low September 18 2007. Fears of recession in the US kept Asian markets pinned down throughout the day. Hang Seng closed down 4.79%, Nikkei down 3.33% and Shanghai down 2.43%. Nifty ended down 248 points and Sensex down 771 points. Indian market was no different and continued to roll down breaching all the supports and followed by lack of participation which pulled out markets to end lower. Europeans markets also opened in cautions negative zone. Realty and metal stocks saw tremendous amount of selling, along with consumer durables and power stocks. Crude touched $110; trading at all time high is certainly not good for industries like Aviations, Tyres and Cement. Asian market ended the sell off journey in deep red while Europe mirrors the Asian markets.

Sensex closed down 782 points at 15346. The major losers were DLF (-14%), REL (-11%), Tata Steel (-9.45%) and Hindalco (-9.15%). The gainers were Bajaj Auto (+1.31%) and HUL (+0.43%).

Textile firm Alok Industries has picked up a 50% stake in Ashford Infotech Ltd through its wholly owned subsidiary Alok Infrastructure. Ashford Infotech is part of the UK-based Ashford group. Ashford Infotech has recently acquired Ceat Ltd?s 6.92-acre land at Bhandup Mumbai for around Rs 130 crore. Ashford will be developing the land jointly with Alok Industries. Alok also plans to raise Rs 600 cr by diluting a 20% stake in Alok Looking at the infra segment value is still unidentified and will give good valuations. Alok is also setting up a 183 acre textile special economic zone (SEZ) in Silvassa and a 100 acre residential project in Vapi through an equal joint venture with textile and steel pipe group Welspun. The move to set up SEZ is in line with the company's objectives. Infrastructure to a private equity player use money to expand its realty business in the country.

Gujarat Gas Company Ltd (GGCL) is expecting a 10% drop in availability of natural gas from Panna-Mukta-Tapti beginning April. According to industry sources, with no immediate possibility of replenishing the shortfall by LNG, the company?s retail sales may come down accordingly in the April-June quarter. Industry sources said that beginning April, availability of contracted volumes from PMT sources to GGCL may come down from 3.1 million standard cubic metre a day (mmscmd) to 2.8 mmscmd. The shortfall in availability may impact GGCL?s retail supplies on pro-rata basis. The bulk industrial supplies, however, will not be impacted. GGCL has already witnessed 0.8 mmscmd drop in spot supplies from PMT soon after the handover of the marketing rights of PMT gas to GAIL.

Technically Speaking: Sensex traded extremely weak for entire day. It made an intraday high of 15,873 and low of 15,229. The overall breadth was in favor of Declines while Advances stood at 359 and Declines at 2331. Sensex have opened the targets of 13800. Big resistance for any rise is expected at 16000-16050, support lies at 15200 and 15000.

Pre Market Watch - March 13 2008

The Indian Market is likely to have a negative opening today due to unfavoring cues from the global markets. On Wednesday, the market closed with marginal gains after a strong start to the trading session. The market opened with handsome gains backed by the US Federal Reserve announcement to infuse $200bn into the global financial system to ease the credit crunch and to pump more liquidity into the economy. But the market was unable to sustained at higher levels gave up all its initial gains due to poor industrial production data that slipped to 5.3% in January 2008 as compared with 11.6% in January 2007. Growth in the manufacturing sector declined to 5.9% in January 2008 as against 12.3% in January 2007.This fall led to the negative sentiments into the market, which in turn results in heavy profit booking across the counters. The BSE Sensex closed up by 4.83 points at 16,127.98 and NSE Nifty closed higher by 6.1 points at 4,872. We expect that the market may trade lower during the trading session.

Just not durable!

Man must be prepared for every event of life, for there is nothing that is durable.

Hoping for One Fine Day has also become difficult these days. Just when global cues seemed better, grim industrial output report spooked the bulls yesterday. We expect the market to open soft in the wake of the weakness in US and Asian markets. The trend thereafter will partly hinge on global cues. Tomorrow, we will get the weekly inflation data. A fresh spike there could deal another blow to the sentiment.

Shares of V-Guard Industries will get listed today on the bourses. The company has fixed the issue price at Rss82 per share. The issue was subscribed 2.45 times. The stock may list around Rs90 to Rs100. It can see the intraday level of Rs105 to Rs110.

India's industrial production halved in January (5.3%) from 11.6% in the year-ago period. The steep drop was led by continuing weakness in the consumer durables segment, which shrunk yet again. But, surprisingly, growth dipped sharply even in capital goods (2.1% vs 16.3%), which had so far held up quite well in the face of a slowdown on the consumption side. The figures are certainly worrisome and point to a clear slowdown in the domestic economic activity from the peak of last year.

The bad news on the industrial slowdown comes in the backdrop of an imminent recession in the US and persistent turmoil in the global financial markets. Another factor that could pose serious challenge for policymakers worldwide is the spurt across various commodities over the past few weeks. So, what we have is a weird situation where economic growth is slipping across the globe while at the same time inflation has started shooting up again.

It will be really tough for the Finance Minister and the RBI Governor to revive momentum in the Indian economy. The budget is partly an exercise in this direction. Another remedy to boost both consumption and investment demand could be an immediate easing of interest rates. But, it remains to be seen if the RBI obliges when it meets for its annual policy meeting next month. Before that we will have the Fed meet on March 18 and of course the all-important fourth quarter and annual results.

Asian stocks fell for the first time in three days, on concerns that demand for the region's exports will slow as record crude oil prices threaten to dent consumer spending worldwide.

The Nikkei in Tokyo was down 2% at 12,600 while the Hang Seng in Hong Kong slid 2.1% to 22,915. The Kospi in Seoul fell 1.2% to 1639 while the Straits Times in Singapore dropped 1.3% to 2880.

The Shanghai Composite in China shed 1.2% to 4019 after briefly slipping below 4,000 for the first time since July. The Taiex in Taiwan fell 0.6% to 8382. Australia's S&P/ASX 200 Index declined 1.4%. All markets open for trading fell except New Zealand.

US stocks ended lower on Wednesday, erasing early gains, as record oil and gas prices overshadowed the Fed announcement that it will inject $200bn into the banking system to soften the liquidity crunch. Some Wall Street observers also attributed the decline to investors taking profits from the previous session's rally.

Stocks rose through the early afternoon as investors continued to cheer the Fed's plan to restore sanity in the credit markets. But the rally fizzled out late in the session and stocks turned lower as investors paid attention to record oil and gas prices.

The S &P 500 Index dropped 12 points, or 0.9%, to 1,308.77. The Dow Jones Industrial Average slipped 47 points, or 0.4%, to 12,110.24. The Nasdaq Composite fell 12 points, or 0.5%, to 2,243.87.

The Dow fell 211 points from its midday high as oil rose. On Tuesday, the bluechip benchmark had rallied 416 points, or 3.6%, its largest percentage climb since March 2003 and its fourth biggest point jump.

Market breadth was negative. Two stocks dropped for every one that rose on the New York Stock Exchange.

Nine of 10 industries in the S&P 500 fell after Merrill Lynch, Goldman Sachs and others said that the Fed's plan may not be able to ease the strain in the credit markets.

Crude oil prices resumed their advance, topping $110 for the first time, as the dollar remained under pressure. Oil had fallen in the morning after the government's weekly inventory report showed a surprise jump in crude supplies.

US light crude oil for April delivery rose $1.19 to settle at $109.72 a barrel in New York, a record close. COMEX gold for April delivery added $4.50 to $980.50 an ounce.

In currency trading, the dollar fell versus the euro but was off its worst levels of the day after touching a fresh record low against the European currency earlier. The greenback fell versus the yen.

Treasury prices rallied after plunging a day before. The advance lowered the yield on the benchmark 10-year note to 3.45% from 3.59% late on Tuesday.

European shares rose for a second straight session. The pan-European Dow Jones Stoxx 600 index climbed 1.2% to end at 311.48. The UK's FTSE 100 closed up 1.5% at 5,776.40, while the French CAC-40 climbed 1.5% to 4,697.10 and the German DAX 30 advanced 1.2% to 6,599.37.

Bulls may continue to struggle

The start was quite promising for bulls with the benchmark Sensex hitting an intra-day high of 16,683. Key indices were firm and were in momentum ahead of break. However, post sun-outage disappointing IIP figures dampened the sentiments on Dalal Street.

Government data indicated that India’s industrial growth dropped. India's industrial output growth shrank sharply in January as high interest rates sapped consumer spending in Asia's fourth-biggest economy even as a US-led global economic slowdown loomed.

Production at factories, mines and utilities rose by 5.3% in January as against 11.6% in the same month last year, data released by the Government showed today. The reading was lower than average expectations of 7-8% expansion.

Finally, the 30-share Sensex closed flat at 16,127 hitting an intra-day low of 16,064. The NSE Nifty also closed flat at 4,872 touching an intra-day high of 5,019 and a low of 4,854.

Gold and silver gain

Gold and silver prices gain as dollar drops and oil tops $110

Precious metals rose once again today, Wednesday, 12 March, 2008 after the dollar fell to new lows against its counterparts, mainly the euro and oil prices rallied crossing the $110 for the first time ever. Higher oil prices boosts the appeal of the precious metal as a hedge against inflation.

Comex Gold for April delivery rose $4.5(0.4%) to close at $970.5 ounce on the New York Mercantile Exchange. This year, gold prices have gained 17% till date. In January, prices gained 11%, the highest monthly gain since April 2006. For February, it gained 6%. Last week, gold prices declined by 80 cents.

Comex Silver futures for May delivery rose 24 cents (0.9%) to $20 an ounce. Silver has gained 30% in 2008. The metal had climbed 16% in FY 2007. The metal also has gained for seven straight years. In January this year itself, prices climbed 14%. In February, it gained another 15%.

Gold has traditionally been used as a safe-haven asset against rising inflation. Investor sentiments are boosted by the fact that gold and silver are alternate sources of good investment in the face of declining dollar and rising energy prices. On the other hand strong dollar reduces the appeal of the metal as alternate source of investment.

In the energy market today, crude oil rose to a record for a sixth day, climbing above $110 a barrel in New York, after the weak dollar prompted traders to invest in commodities.

In the currency market today pressure on the dollar resumed and sent it to a new low against the euro, after stronger-than-expected economic data in both the eurozone overshadowed any lingering influence of the Federal Reserve's liquidity-boosting steps. The dollar index, which measures the U.S. currency against a basket of major currencies, fell 1% to 72.41.

The dollar has been dampened since last year, more since start of FY 2008 after interest rates were cut twice in January, 2008. Gold, as a dollar-denominated commodity, suffers from dollar strength. On the contrary, gold prices rise with falling dollar as inflationary concerns boosts the metal's appeal as an inflation hedge.

The Fed has cut the federal funds rate to 3% this year from 5.25% in mid-September, 2007. January 2008 itself saw two rate cuts in a gap of ten days.

Gold witnessed the greatest annual gain in twenty eight years by gaining $200/ounce (31%) in FY 2007 as lower interest rates had sent the dollar tumbling, and crude-oil prices rose to a record. The Fed reduced federal funds rate three times in FY 2007. In 2006, silver had jumped 46% while gold gained 23%.

At the MCX, gold prices for April delivery closed higher by Rs 68 (0.5%) at Rs 12,704 per 10 grams. Prices rose to a high of Rs 12,740 per 10 grams and fell to a low of Rs 12,588 per 10 grams during the day’s trading.

At the MCX, silver prices for May delivery closed Rs 424 (1.7%) higher at Rs 25,796/Kg. Prices opened at Rs 25,450/kg and went to a high of Rs 26,047/Kg during the day’s trading

Crude crosses 110 dollars

Price crosses $110 despite increase in weekly inventories

Crude prices shot up once again today, Wednesday, 12 March, 2008. Prices rose after the dollar remained under pressure today. Prices rose despite the EIA reporting a surprising increase in weekly crude inventory for week ending on Friday, 7 March, 2008.

Crude-oil futures for light sweet crude for April delivery today closed at $109.92/barrel (higher by $1.17/barrel or 1.1%) on the New York Mercantile Exchange. They earlier surged to $110.2 a barrel, the highest since trading began in 1983. Last week, crude prices ended higher by $3.31 (3.3%).

Crude prices, denominated in dollars, tend to rise when the greenback falls, as a weaker U.S. currency makes crude less expensive to buyers holding other currencies. It also lowers oil producers' dollar revenue and forces them to raise prices.

In the currency market today, pressure on the dollar resumed and sent it to a new low against the euro, after stronger-than-expected economic data overshadowed any lingering influence of the Federal Reserve's liquidity-boosting steps. The dollar index, which measures the U.S. currency against a basket of major currencies, fell 1% to 72.41.

EIA reported today that U.S. crude inventories rose 6.2 million barrels to 311.6 million barrels in the week ended 7 March. U.S. gasoline supplies rose by 1.7 million barrels in the latest week, while distillate stocks fell by 1.2 million barrels.

EIA also reported that U.S. refineries operated at 85% of their operable capacity last week, down from the previous week's 85.9%. U.S. crude oil imports averaged 10.5 million barrels a day last week, up 1.1 million barrels a day from the previous week.

Brent crude oil for April settlement today rose $1.02 (1%) to $106.27 on the London-based ICE Futures Europe exchange. The London benchmark rose 54% in FY 2007, the most since 1999 when prices more than doubled.

Heating oil surges above $3 for first time

Natural gas in New York closed above $10 per million British thermal units for a third day as investors in commodities sought a hedge against a declining dollar and crude oil surged to a record. Natural gas for April delivery rose 1.1 cents to settle at $10.011 per million Btu.

Against this backdrop, April reformulated gasoline rose slightly to $2.7286 a gallon, and April heating oil surged to close at $3.0244 a gallon, up 2.87 cents.

Today's Pick - Hindalco

We recommend a sell in Hindalco Industries from a short-term perspective. From the charts of Hindalco Industries, we note that after encountering resistance at Rs 220 in early January ’08, the stock declined and found support at Rs 150 levels in early February.

The stock rallied from this level and recently halted at the resistance at Rs 210. From this level, the stock declined and formed a bearish engulfing candlestick pattern more recently, indicating reversal in the trend. Besides, the stock tumbled 5 per cent on March 12. The daily momentum indicator, which was testing 60 levels, has begun to decline.

The weekly momentum indicator is featuring in the neural region. We also see that there is a decrease in volume for the past four trading sessions, which supports the downtrend. We are bearish on the stock in the short-term. We expect the stock to decline further and reach our target price level of Rs 170. Investors with a short-term perspective can sell the stock while keeping the stop loss at Rs 208.
