August F&O expiry: Sensex slips 33 pts; ADAG stocks rally, Rupee at 70.82/$

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking Nifty ended flat amid volatility on the F&O expiry day, while rollover and unwinding of derivatives positions kept the participants busy. In line with the benchmark index, sectoral indices also remained volatile and ended mixed. We expect consolidation in Nifty ahead. However, there'll be no shortage of opportunities on stock-specific front. In absence of any major event on domestic front, global cues would dictate the market trend in near future. Traders should continue with stock-specific trading approach and prefer banks, auto and pharma for fresh buying.

Kotak Institutional Equities maintains SELL on Reliance Industries Our reverse valuation exercise suggests that investors have not only priced in a robust energy segment performance in RIL’s current valuations, but also ascribed the EV of leading players in key sectors that are being targeted by RIL’s platform narrative—Bharti’s India business (telecom), Avenue Supermarts (retail), Flipkart (e-commerce) and key players in the media sector (content ecosystem). The recent sharp rally leaves limited scope for disappointment on that narrative, which may not be ruled out given well-funded competition in key segments. Reiterate SELL. RIL is valued at $91 billion (Rs 6 lakh crore)
