Closing view: Strong revival possible only when global uncertainties settle

Declining commodity prices have been lifting the exhausted domestic equity market during the recent sessions.

Despite this positivity, the underlying fear of recession, tightening monetary policy and inflation can trigger the volatility going forward.

A strong revival in the market can only be expected when the economy stabilises from these uncertainties and when FIIs turn net buyers.

Russia defaults on foreign debt- What does it mean for Indian stock markets?

We believe that the Russian Default on the foreign debt will be a non-event for Indian stock markets. The markets globally have already discounted this event however, there could be a possibility of further isolation of Russia from the west.

Further, the contribution of Russia to world GDP is nominal and due to high crude oil and natural gas prices, Russia has been able to earn record current account surpluses in foreign exchange, thus leading to the strong performance of the Russian Ruble despite the massive sanctions.

Experts' views on Zomato: Blinkit deal may add to co's high op losses

The recently announced acquisition of Blinkit by Zomato Ltd. is expected to add to its woes of high operating losses.Blinkit is synergistic to Zomato’s food delivery business and the management expects the business to grow significantly in the future.

The quick commerce market, however, has become incredibly competitive, and it will take a very long time to figure out the unit economics and turn profitable.

Further, the current markets are not conducive for businesses that are growing without showing profits. Thus we believe that this company is suitable only for investors having a high-risk appetite and a long-term view.

Views by Punit Patni, Equity Research Analyst, Swastika Investmart
This is a segment where profitability is a few years away. Some of them might do well in the long run.

But retail investors, instead of chasing hope, will be better off chasing solid stocks with strong fundamentals now. Leading banks will report very good Q1 FY 23 results next month. That's a bird in hand; e-commerce companies are birds in bushes.
