MARKETS ON TUESDAY: Sensex, Nifty gain in last leg of trade; PSU banks rise

Market round-up from Geojit Financial Services   Market traded range bound throughout the day due to volatility in the global market. But towards the close, pace picked up supported by moderation in yield and growth in core sector. Yield declined amid central bank allowing the banks to spread their bond trading losses which gave a positive sentiment to banking stocks. On the other hand, investors are gradually shifting focus to upcoming Q4 results and RBI policy outcome which will dictate the market outlook in the near term. Nifty PSU Bank index settles 1.65% higher.

Motilal Oswal Research on Tata Chemicals As Tata Chemicals scales up its growth businesses and deleverages its balance sheet, we expect its consolidated RoCE to improve considerably, in turn driving a stock re-rating. We believe it would be fair to assign ~30% premium to its five-year average EV/EBITDA of 7.5x. Our SOTP-based target price of Rs 940 (implied EV/EBITDA of 9.7x FY20E) implies 36% upside. We initiate coverage with Buy.

Benchmark rose in the last leg of trade to end higher on Tuesday despite weakness in global peers, with gains in lenders such as State Bank of India, ICICI Bank and Axis Bank.

The S&P ended at 33,371, up 115 points while the broader Nifty50 index settled at 10,245, up 33 points.

Among sectoral indices, the PSU Bank index was up over 1.5% led by a rise in the of Bank of India and Bank of Baroda.

The Nikkei Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, compiled by IHS Markit, fell to 51.0 last month from February's 52.1, well short of a Reuters poll median of 52.8.

Investors will now look forward to Reserve Bank of India's (RBI) first bi-monthly policy decision of FY19 to be held on Thursday.

In the global markets, Asian extended a global selloff and the yen rose on Tuesday as investors fled for safety as an escalating trade spat between the United States and China and a renewed slump in tech such as Amazon.com sapped investor confidence.
