MARKET WRAP: Indices at new high; Sensex up 442 pts, Nifty hits 11,700

MARKET COMMENT Jayant Manglik, President, Religare Broking It's been an exceptional start of the expiry week as Nifty gained over a percent and settled closer to 11,700. It opened gap up in line with from other global indices, mainly in reaction to the latest statement from the US Fed wherein they've hinted that further rate hikes would be gradual. Besides, recovery in rupee combined with encouraging data of foreign fund flow added to positivity. Almost all the sectoral indices, barring media and realty, contributed to the rally however broader market showed mixed trend.    Markets are steadily moving higher despite mixed cues and this clearly indicates upbeat sentiment among the participants. However, we feel participants, especially traders, should gradually reduce their positions on every rise in Nifty from hereon and focus more on stocks. Banking, auto and pharma are still our top picks for short term trades

F&O watch Rollover activity in the Nifty seems to be on the higher side into the September series after exhibiting significant resilience at highs during the series as the Nifty continues to trade near 11500 despite multiple headwinds. The Nifty near month futures have almost 29.5 million shares, significantly high compared to last six months. At the same time, with PCR Ratio for the Nifty testing 1.70 levels, consolidation above11500 seems more likely in the settlement week. The roll spread in the Nifty is likely to inch up due to rollover of long positions during the August series. We believe current spread of 38 points may move beyond 45 points towards settlement. On the other hand, the Bank Nifty continued to see closure of positions in the near month series with roll cost of just 100 points

Centrum on Siyaral Silk Mills Given the current quarter performance, we have marginally lowered our estimates with revenue and PAT CAGR of 14.1% and 14.5%, respectively over FY18-20E (vs 14.5% and 14.6% earlier). Currently, SSML trades at a P/E of 17.3x on FY20E basis. We maintain our view that SSML is likely to do well over the medium to long term, however on a quarterly basis there may be variations on the sales and profit front depending upon the market conditions and demand scenario. We value the company at 21x FY20E EPS, giving a target price of Rs 674.
