Sensex touches 50k for the first time in history

Sensex touches 50k while it seems like the earnings of India’s leading companies are about to bounce back strongly after the coronavirus in the third quarter.

As the Sensex touches 50k as the 49,000-mark for the first time ever on Monday,  and the Nifty50 on the National Stock Exchange was trading above 14,400, healthy buying was witnessed in the IT, telecom and FMCG stocks.

For the first time in history S&P BSE Sensex opened above 49,200 whereas Nifty 50 could begin the day above 14,400.

Monday’s trading session started with Domestic equity benchmark with gains following strong global cues.

The IT stocks became the leading gainers. Infosys, HCL Technologies, and ITC became the top gainers.

The other top drags were Axis Bank, Maruti Suzuki India and Bajaj Finance. Midcap 50 was observed to be underperforming whereas Nifty Smallcap 50 was outperforming.

It seems like the earnings of India’s leading companies are about to bounce back strongly after the coronavirus in the third quarter.

This is a great deal because they have incurred loss during the initial months of this fiscal year. Radhakishan Damani’s Avenue Supermarkets net profit grew 16% on-year basis while IT major TCS has reported strong on-year growth. It is a good sign that business activity has picked up and it is expected that October- December earnings would be better.

Radhakishan Damani’s DMart hits fresh highs, as Sensex touches 50k

Damani’s Supermarkets saw the price gush to a height of Rs 3,130 per share on Monday morning.

The DMart reported a net profit of Rs 446.95 crore as they had a 16.3% on-year jump. This particular strong growth in profits was possible as it had a 11% jump in revenue.

It is since October that the stock price of Avenue Supermarkets has taken a leap of 50%. It is being observed that the analysts are still not interested in giving a ‘buy’ call.

It definitely could raise the earning estimates but gave a ‘sell’ recommendation with a value of Rs 1,885. “Sharp stock price performance bakes in consistent revenue growth (possible, in view of large growth opportunity) and margin expansion(difficult, in a competitive business which may see sizable capital infusion from peers in the near-term),” they added.

Sensex touches 50k, FII buying takes Dalal Street to uncharted territory

“Frenzied buying (FII’s bought Rs 6029 cr last Friday) is taking the markets to unchartered territory. Trend prediction has become extremely difficult. Market is in an overbought zone and there is no valuation comfort in the market. Market consensus that liquidity will remain abundant and interest rates low is driving the market. Risk is the consensus going wrong. TCS results & management commentary are very positive and indicate the improving prospects for the sector. But most positives are in the price,” said V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services.
