MARKET WRAP: Sensex hits new high; Nifty at highest level since February 01

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking Nifty settled with decent gains today and inched closer to its record high. The news of GST Council reduced on list of over 100 items and simplification of return filing brings in some cheer. Selective index majors from FMCG, auto, realty and metal fuelled the rally which further supported by rebound in banking pack. Besides, some relief was also witnessed on broader front.   Both Nifty and Bank Nifty have reached closer to their immediate and crucial hurdle of 11100 and 27100 respectively and a decisive breakout will trigger fresh surge ahead. But, we're in expiry week so volatility tends to remain high. We suggest maintaining positive yet cautious approach in the key indices, considering the mixed sentiment. Traders should focus more on the money management aspects and avoid taking unnecessary risk

LKP Securities on Bandhan Bank Despite micro-loans being unsecured in nature, bank has maintained sound asset quality with the gross NPAs and net NPAs at 1.3% & 0.6% respectively (Q1FY19). Strong NPA position is largely driven by its group-based lending model, focus on income generating loans, strong systems to track loan utilization, monitoring credit & ensuring collection, extensive risk management practices (such as lending progressively higher amounts only to members who have built up a track record of good repayment) which taken together have led to low rates of default. Going forward, with the strong growth in the assets we assume marginal increase in NPAs – gross NPAs to surge to 2.3% in FY20E from 1.3% in FY18
