Market outlook by ICICI Securities   Equity markets across DMs and EMs continued to hit new highs although EM bonds saw mixed performance last week. Volatility continued to be low, which shows that risk appetite is rising.Post the recent market correction in Sep ’17, small-caps (+7.85%) and mid-caps (+ 4.95%) have outperformed large-cap stocks (+4.43%) despite large-cap valuation at a discount to mid-cap valuation. Although markets have reacted positively to the emerging reality, there is a palpable uncertainty around the near-term growth outlook for the Indian economy, which could manifest itself in the wake of incremental disappointing data around growth.   View on earnings   Our Q2 FY18 preview suggests that Nifty PAT could expand by ~11% YoY largely driven by  commodity and financial stocks. Amongst financials, retail lenders continue to register robust earnings growth while volatility is seen in the corporate lending segment. In the non-financial segment, auto (ex 2-wheelers), cement, telecom, pharma and IT are expected to put pressure on Q2FY18 earnings. Consumption-related sectors, industrials and utilities are expected to report growth in mid to high single digits.

Infosys Q2 preview   In dollar terms, Infosys is likely to report 3.6% sequential and 6.2% year-on-year (yoy) revenue growth at $2,748 million, say analysts at HDFC Securities. In rupee terms, revenues are likely to come in at Rs 17,585 crore. IT major is seen reporting a 2.6 per cent QoQ sequential growth in revenue in constant currency (CC) terms.

Centrum Broking on DCB Bank   We retain Hold on DCB Bank (DCBB) with target price at Rs172. While Q2’18 results were ahead of our estimates on revenue front (+30% YoY); higher than expected operating expenses saw PAT grow (21.5% YoY), in-line with our estimates. NIM dipped sequentially and we expect the trend therein to continue in H2FY18. Sequentially lower slippages, positive commentaries on growth and continued focus at containing operating costs remain key positives. While we remain positive on DCBB, valuations at 2x FY19E ABV offer limited near term upside.
