Sensex ends 227 points lower, Nifty dips below 10,250 on inflation fears

All that happened in Tuesday's trade

SI Reporter  |  New Delhi 

The benchmark indices settled lower on Tuesday on concerns that higher global crude oil prices would stoke inflation and impact future interest rate decisions by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), with oil marketers and bank stocks weighing on the Nifty50. Brent crude oil, the international benchmark for oil prices, jumped above $65 per barrel for the first time since 2015 after the shutdown of the Forties North Sea pipeline knocked out significant supply from a market that was already tightening due to OPEC-led production cuts.

Sensex ends 227 points lower, Nifty dips below 10,250 on inflation fears

Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services     Profit-booking on the broader indexes capped the previous day’s gain as rising oil price casts caution over the inflation trajectory. Rate sensitive stocks underperformed ahead of today’s economic data CPI inflation & IIP. Mixed trend in global market ahead of two days of US Fed meet also slowed down the domestic sentiment.

Nikhil Kamath, Co-Founder and Head of Trading, Zerodha   Markets opened slightly higher in trade on Tuesday, constant selling through the session took the indices lower to close with losses of close to one percent. Banking stocks underperformed with Bharti Infratel, TataPower, BPCL, IOC being the worst performers of the session, with crude prices rallying on the back of the North sea pipeline outage.   The issue inherently is that we are constantly underperforming our global peers and prices seem to have run up without the underlying fundamentals catching up yet.   We continue to maintain a negative outlook and advocate holding shorts at the current juncture.

Kotak Securities on Petronet LNG   We expect Petronet LNG’s earnings to grow at a CAGR of 15% over the next two years driven by a volume growth, benefiting from contractual commitments of 17.2 mn tons and commissioning of Kochi-Mangalore pipeline. We expect PLNG to report an EPS of Rs.14.1 for FY18E and an EPS of Rs.15 for FY19E. We expect FY18E to be better driven by acceleration in volume growth, supported by expansion. At CMP, we believe that the stock is reasonably valued at 16.7x FY19E earnings. We recommend BUY rating on the stock with a price target of Rs 285/- including equity value of 26% stake in Dahej Port. Given that most of the capacity at Dahej is tied-up, there is strong visibility on the free cash flow yield.
