Tata Power (Q2FY23): Stable all-round performance. Upgrade to ADD

“The company’s planned 4GW of extended module and cell capacity is expected to be rolled out in July 2023 and December 2023 respectively. Its EPC order book remains strong at INR150bn (3.8GW) and is gaining traction. The first tranche of INR20bn from the Blackrock deal was completed in Q2FY23. The ministry of power’s nod to allow CGPL exercise Sec 11 for offtake arrangement until Dec’ 2022 provides the much-needed respite for the project to curb its under-recovery. However, unless it signs supplementary PPAs with the beneficiaries, the benefits at Mundra are temporary with no long-term solution. We have marginally tweaked our estimates and raised our SoTP to INR243 vs INR232 earlier, factoring in margin restoration in its EPC business and loss reduction at Mundra.”-HDFC Securities Institutional Equities

Fed to remain hawkish, 75 bps rate hike likely

“Recently, data in the U.S. has remained mixed. GDP was upbeat m-o-m, however, non-farm payrolls were weaker. Additionally, business confidence, services and manufacturing PMI numbers were also weak. But the crucial inflation remained sticky with CPI on a yearly basis remaining above 8%. So, markets are speculating that the U.S. Fed could ease on aggressive language on future rate hikes in 2023 as the recent aggressive rate hikes have weighed on the U.S. economy and possibly lead to a recession. Markets have already factored in a 75-bps rate hike in November and according to the FedWatch Tool, less than 50% of markets believe that 75-bps is expected in November. So, will the Fed remain hawkish? Yes, in November, but in December there is small probability that the Fed could pivot to a less hawkish stance amid signs that inflation in the U.S. could be easing. However, it’s too early to assume that inflation will ease beyond December.”Sriram Iyer – Senior Research Analyst, Commodities & Currencies at Reliance Securities

Auto stocks will be in the limelight reacting to their monthly sales numbers to be out from today.

Some profit booking advisable on rallies

“The ongoing rally which has taken the Sensex above 60000 has been triggered mainly by the rally in the mother market US where the Dow has recorded 4 straight weeks of gains. This US market rally, in turn, has been triggered by the strong US Q3 GDP data which surprised on the upside with a 2.6% growth. The market which had discounted an immediate recession is now discounting a possibility of a soft landing for the US economy, that is, the Fed might succeed in taming inflation without pushing the economy into recession. In India, FPIs turning buyers is another positive for markets. Short covering can take the market higher. But at higher levels there will be institutional selling putting a cap on the rally. Some profit booking is advisable on rallies,” –VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

Nifty could touch 18100-18150 levels

“Investors are hoping for a smaller rate hike by the US Federal Reserve this week against the earlier expectation of a more aggressive rate increase. This optimism has fuelled a sharp upsurge, which has pushed both the local benchmark indices above their key psychological levels. Also, FIIs are looking at local shares with renewed interest, which has boosted the investors' sentiment. However, if the Fed adopts any hawkish stance, markets could be in for a steep correction in the near term. Technically, the Nifty has formed a bullish candle and higher bottom formation, which is indicating the continuation of an uptrend in the near future. As long as the index trades above 17900 the uptrend formation is likely to continue, and above the same it could touch 18100-18150 levels. Below 17900, traders may prefer to exit long positions and on further decline it could retest the 17800 mark.”-Shrikant Chouhan, Head of Equity Research (Retail), Kotak Securities

Nifty is likely to be on the front foot in the near term with aggressive targets at its all-time-high at 18605 mark. Hopefully, a dovish Federal Reserve on November 2 leads into a new uptrend at Dalal Street. Investors will also be eyeing RBI MPC's unscheduled meeting on Thursday, and US October jobs report on Friday.”-Prashanth Tapse – Research Analyst, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities

Nifty to regain momentum above 18,100 level

“Markets started the week on a robust note and gained over a percent, tracking firm global cues. After the gap-up start, the Nifty hovered in a narrow range for most of the day and buying in the last hour helped the index to reclaim 18,000 levels. Healthy buying was witnessed across sectors while the broader indices continue to trade mix. The buoyancy in the global markets, especially the US, combined with favourable domestic cues is helping the markets to maintain the prevailing recovery. And, we expect the Nifty to regain momentum above the 18,100 level. In line with the trend, participants should look for buying opportunities on every dip and avoid contrarian trades.”- Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking Ltd
