Of the 47 sectors CRISIL MI&A Research tracks, nine, accounting for more than 70% of overall revenue, saw a pick-up in on-year growth.

Says Aniket Dani, Director- Research, CRISIL Market Intelligence and Analytics “Growth in revenue was largely skewed towards consumer discretionary products and services, where automobiles and the retail sector led the pack, and construction-linked sectors, where companies accrued benefits from an early deployment of capital expenditure by the roads and railways ministries. Truant monsoon proved to be a silver lining here as there were fewer interruptions in construction activity, thereby supporting volume growth even during a seasonally lean period.”

Participation in gold has marginally reduced during the last trading session, and the overall participation continues to hover at lower levels.

Though a dip to test this support during the day is possible, a break below 19,620 is less likely. We expect the Nifty to bounce back from around 19,620 and rise back to 19,800 in the coming days.

We expect HDFC Life Insurance to come out with a decent set of numbers on account of new addition of the distribution partners and its enhanced digital capabilities. Also, due to the amalgamation of HDFC Ltd. with HDFC Bank, HDFC Life became a subsidiary of HDFC Bank, and there is likely to be closer alignment in terms of distribution. Due to its merger with Exide Life, there has been an impact seen in VNB’s margin, which is at 26.2%, significantly below its peers; we feel that the life insurer will be able to reach margin neutrality by the end of this year. We see increasing traction in its ULIP segment, which will grow due to positive momentum in the capital market. With new business APE growth expected to be better than the Q1FY24 and an uptick seen in the new product launches in the pension segment, we believe that Q2FY24 results of the life insurer will be decent. The life insurer’s premium collection for September and H1FY24 grew 8% and 15%, respectively, with retail APE growing at 13% YoY. As a result, we expect the company to post a double-digit net premium income and net profit on a YoY basis in Q2FY24
“Infosys Q2 earnings are in line with market expectation but the company trimming its revenue guidance would be negative for the stock. Overall results are not so bad but discounted in prices. FY24 Guidance – revised downwards would put pressure on prices to sustain while it has maintained margins. Technically the last minute fall in prices shows that results were not in favour of bulls, hence a gap down opening between Rs 1400-1420 could be seen in the opening trade.”
Q2-FY24 Preview by Anand Rathi Research Team.
Margin expansion to continue amid rising agri-commodity prices. The IMF has raised its forecast of India’s FY24 GDP by 20bps, to 6.3%. In line with this, we believe Q2 volume growth is expected to come in high single digits despite the festival season falling in Q3. Although costs of certain commodities have inched up, the likely benefit of low-cost stocks would have boosted margin expansion, driving healthy earnings-growth momentum. Large- and small-caps are likely to have outshone mid-caps’ earnings-growth momentum.
Broad-based growth likely. Demand traction is seen in manufacturing and services as can be inferred from the strong PMI of ~57.5 for manufacturing and ~61 for services in Sep’23. Rural demand continued to improve albeit slower, whereas the strong growth trajectory in urban demand has persisted. We believe consumption and investment have done well during the quarter.
Indian markets continue to outshine. Indian equities continued to deliver strong returns in the current fiscal despite global uncertainties. Owing to India’s robust macroeconomic fundamentals, healthy corporate earnings’ performance, continued liquidity flows to equity markets and reasonable valuations (19x FY25e consensus earnings), we believe Indian equity markets are likely to be buoyant in the medium term. The key risk is any escalation of geo-political tensions, which may heighten market volatility in the short term.

The Company reported a consolidated net profit of ₹111 crores for Apr – Sep 2023 (H1FY24), an increase of 34% compared to Apr – Sep 2022 (H1FY23) and total revenue during same period grew 35% to ₹368 crores.
Auto Sales – Sept’23, with a quote by the Chief Economist and Head of Research, Mr. Suman Chowdhury. Chief Economist & Head – Research, Acuité Ratings & Research Ltd.
“The festive season has expectedly, brought in positive consumer sentiments in the urban areas and along with the upcoming harvest of the kharif crop in the rural areas, should keep PV growth rates healthy in the near term. Further, increased consumer preference towards SUV/MPVs segment, improvement in semiconductor availability and the nearing elections both in multiple states and the central level continue to be sectoral growth drivers.
The festive season has induced a moderate pickup in the domestic demand for 2Ws, as seen from the wholesale volumes and the data reported by FADA. Such numbers can be sustainable only if the kharif crop output doesn’t show any significant shortfall and the rabi sowing happens as per expectations. Similarly, the recovery in 2W export volumes in Sep-23 is encouraging but its sustainability needs to be seen, given the uncertainty and slowdown in the global economy.
Growth of CVs in the domestic market has moderated in the current fiscal after a strong growth in the previous year. While exports continue to face headwinds, industrial activity has seen a steady uptrend in the first half of the year and along with the existing demand drivers namely the step up in public sector expenditure in infrastructure and the continuing penetration of e-commerce services, should translate into better growth rates in the second half the year.”
“Infosys’ Q2FY24 headline numbers were impressive on the back of 2.3% c/c revenue growth on a sequential basis, and EBIT margin increase of 40 bps qoq despite higher subcontracting costs and partial wage revision. The company has posted good net profit numbers and record TCV of US$7.7 bn. However, weak volumes have been fed into the guidance which now stands revised to 1-2.5% from 1-3.5% earlier, while guidance cut once again at the upper end of the band implies flat to 1.9% decline in revenues in the next two quarters. The EBIT margin of 21.2% was ahead of our estimate of 20.6% despite higher pass-through revenues. While net headcount increased by 7.5K employees to 328.7K employee qoq, the headcount decline on yoy comparison stands at 16.5K employees or 5%. Employee utilization of ex-trainees has increased to 81.8% from 81.1% earlier, indicating that utilization has scope to increase further.”
Nifty consolidated in a tight range of 19,780-19,830 throughout the day to close at 19,794, down 17 points.
Both the call & put writers battled out at 19,800 Strike leading to a rangebound movement in the Index today. Since 5th October, the futures open interest has fallen nearly 6% and the price has risen 1%, indicating covering of short positions in Nifty futures.
The option activity at 19,800 Strike is likely to provide cues about Nifty future direction as the maximum call & put open interest is placed at 19,800 Strike. A break below 19,760 level can result in gap filing until 19,700 levels while a breakout above 19,840 can result in a swift move until 19,900 levels.

CPI
CPI inflation eased to a 3-month low of 5% in September.
Moderation was largely led by correction in vegetables prices and lower LPG prices.
Cereals, Pulses and Spices continued to witness double-digit inflation.
Core inflation fell to the lowest in 3.5 years at 4.6%.
CPI inflation in Q2 FY24 averaged at 6.4%, in line with the RBI’s estimate.
Near-term risks to the inflation outlook have worsened due to volatility in global crude oil prices.
RBI will continue to manage inflationary pressures through its liquidity measures.
IIP:
IIP growth came at a 14-month high of 10.3% in August.
Broad-based growth across sectors and a favourable base supported growth.
Strong performance in infrastructure/construction goods continued with a growth of 14.9%.
Consumer durables output improved to 5.7% in August after two successive months of contraction.
Going ahead, domestic consumption remains critical; healthy momentum in infrastructure/construction goods to remain supportive of industrial activity.
CPI data
As expected, with September’s retail inflation standing at 5%, inflation has finally been brought back to within the RBI’s ideal 2-6% band. This cooling has been partly precipitated by major corrections in vegetable prices. Nevertheless, the near-term picture is less clear when it comes to cereals, spices, and pulses, mainly due to uncertain weather conditions, the current geopolitical situation, and global shortages.
In addition, the oil situation also looks hazy going forward: while prices were initially on the rise due to supply shocks, they could now rise further due to second-order effects of the unexpected Israel-Palestine conflict. Any oil price hikes will have an impact on the non-food component of inflation.
IIP data
With industrial output growth soaring from 5.7% in July to 10.3% in August, India Inc. seems to be doing something very right. The turnaround of the mining sector, which posted a growth of 12.3% after having contracted 3.9% in August 2022, stands out in particular. Manufacturing and electricity outputs have also grown considerably on a YoY basis.
Nevertheless, for the April-August period, beverages (0.7%), leather products (0.2%), wearable apparel (-22.6%), paper products (-4.6%), and several other kinds of products have seen poor manufacturing growth rates. If these sectors can also get back up on their feet soon, we could see surprisingly high overall growth in the near future.
The material easing seen in September CPI to 5.02%, led by a sharp reversal in perishable food prices, is likely to continue in October, resulting in a <5% print. With non-perishables are showing signs of persistence, overall food inflation is likely to remain relatively elevated, with risks from a potential weak kharif harvest as well. Core inflation will ease further in H2FY24, and will undershoot headline inflation by 60-65bps in FY24E. We see FY24E inflation at 5.2% (RBI: 5.4%), with the RBI likely to keep rates on hold ahead, and not precede the Fed in any policy reversal in CY24.

Stocks across Asia registered declines, mirroring the extended losses on Wall Street, as concerns over higher interest rates resurfaced following stable US inflation data.
In morning trading, Japan’s Nikkei 225 index slid 0.27%, or 89.08 points to 32,405.58, with the broader Topix index down 0.84%, or 19.63 points at 2,322.94. South Korea’s KOSPI, a key benchmark, declined by 0.62% to 2,464.40 points, while Australia’s S&P/ASX 100 also saw a 0.18% drop.
This followed Wall Street’s performance on Thursday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling by 0.51% (173.73 points) to 33,631.14, the S&P 500 losing 0.62% (27.34 points) to close at 4,349.61, and the Nasdaq Composite dropping 0.63% (85.46 points) to 13,574.22.
Oil prices rose on Friday after the U.S. tightened its sanctions programme against Russian crude exports, raising supply concerns in an already tight market, and global inventories are forecast to decline through the fourth quarter.
Brent futures rose 36 cents, or 0.4%, to $86.36 per barrel and U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude gained 53 cents, or 0.6%, to $83.44 a barrel at 0052 GMT.
Brent is set for a weekly gain of 2.1%, while WTI is set to climb 0.8% for the week, after both contracts surged on Monday on the potential for disruptions to Middle Eastern exports after Hamas’ attack on Israel over the weekend threatened a possible wider conflict.
Prices gave back some of those gains during week. But, on Thursday, the U.S. imposed the first sanctions on owners of tankers carrying Russian oil priced above the G7’s price cap of $60 a barrel, to close loopholes in the mechanism designed to punish Moscow for its invasion of Ukraine. – Reuters
Wall Street’s main indexes closed lower on Thursday after a U.S. Treasury auction sent bond yields higher while investors were already digesting data that showed consumer prices rose more than anticipated in September.
