MARKET WRAP: Sensex ends at record closing high, up 282 pts; RIL up 4%

MARKET COMMENT by Gautam Duggad, Head of Research, Motilal Oswal Institutional Equities   Sensex crossed all-time high on the back of global cues as well as solid start to earnings season with TCS beating expectations. The divergence between large-caps and mid-caps has widened in 2018 with mid-cap and small-cap indices still down 15-20% from the top. Even within Nifty - select high quality stocks with earnings visibility are driving the index with TCS, HDFC Bank, HUL, Reliance being the key outperformers in YTD CY18.   We expect the markets to remain in a tight range albeit with higher volatility in 2018 given the busy political calendar ahead. Our relative preference stays with large caps as midcaps are still trading at premium to largecaps.

Sector watch: Prabhudas Lilladher on road construction stocks Road sector stocks have corrected by ~15-20% over last 3 months in spite of all time high order inflow and order book in FY18, our interaction with investor suggest one of apprehension is risk to execution due to reluctance on part of banking sector to lend to road sector (O/s credit to sector coming down YoY since last several months).   While political uncertainty might continue to weigh on sector in near term, concerns on execution are over done in our view.  We continue to like players with a strong track record of execution and large balance sheet to support/fund large projects wins. We continue to maintain "BUY" on Sadbhav Engineering and Ashoka Buildcon with price target of Rs 417 and Rs 287, respectively
