Reliance Q3 results to be announced shortly. Here’s what to expect

Reliance Industries is likely to post a strong set of numbers for the December quarter when it reports its earnings on Friday.

Reliance will come out with stellar numbers. One, GRMs are going to be stronger on the back of higher crude. Their inventory will play out on the positive side. The ARPU is expected between 148 and 150 which could again be a silver lining. The gross additions have been huge which we have been seeing in the coming months. Thirdly, Reliance retail could be the real spark given that even though consumer inflation is there, there has been very strong numbers

PTC India board to meet Jan 22 after allegations of irregularities

PTC India will hold its first board meeting on Saturday following recent allegations of lapses in governance and operations at its financial lending units. Rajib Mishra, the company’s chairman, did not elaborate on the agenda of the meeting. Mishra was addressing a news conference after shares of non-banking financial company PTC India Financial Services Ltd (PFS) continued to fall on Friday.

Markets will react to the earnings of two heavyweights- Reliance Industries and ICICI Bank in early trade on Monday. Weak global cues are currently weighing on the sentiment and excessive volatility due to earnings is further adding to the participants’ worries. On the index front, Nifty should hold 17,600 levels for any meaningful recovery, else it may see a further slide to 17,350 zone. We suggest preferring hedged positions and suggest keeping a check on position size until the market stabilises.

Rupee Update

View: Global markets, Budget likely to keep indices volatile

The ongoing selling by FIIs and weak Indian rupee forced the domestic market to continue surrendering its gains, with all major sectors trading under pressure. Weak sentiments from global markets due to persistent inflationary worries and weaker-than-expected earnings also added to the selling pressure. Along with global disturbances, the uncertainties regarding the upcoming budget will likely keep the domestic market highly volatile in the coming days.

— Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

Indices witnessed a 4% cut this week as FPI booked profits across large-caps and select high quality mid-caps. Rising oil and input prices coupled with a moderating rural economy kept investors watchful as markets turned volatile. Most of the Sectoral Indices except the FMCG index ended in the red on a big earnings day today of Reliance which helped indices recoup losses for the day in late afternoon trade.

February 2022 would also see the presentation of the Union Budget. All eyes would likely be on the quantum of fiscal deficit for FY23 and its implications on both debt and equity markets. The Finance Minister would have to walk the tightrope in terms of balancing the need for fiscal consolidation and facilitating expenditure growth to nurture economic recovery. We expect infrastructure push to remain the key macro theme of the FY23 Union Budget. Some of the other areas of focus could be boosting rural incomes, employment and strengthening the health infrastructure.

– Devang Mehta, Head-Equity Advisory, Centrum India

The advent of new Covid variants and the associated uncertainties has kept the markets and the economies globally on edge. We hope that the Union Budget could bring about some confidence and stability in current volatile markets. With state elections lined up in over five states in 2022, we believe that a focus on job creation and investment-driven growth would be paramount. We see that asset monetization and higher disinvestment will continue to fund the development projects. To boost consumption, we expect an increase in the limit of standard deduction and home loan tax deductions. Overall, we believe that policy reforms and government spending on infrastructure development will boost economic recovery, giving ample opportunities to retail investors for growth.

Sensex off day’s low, reclaims 59K

Sensex off day's low, reclaims 59K

The texture of global stock markets is changing. Starting from April 2020 till October 2021 Wall Street has been a one-way street. Dalal Street too followed almost the same trend. Now there are indications that this trend is changing. US markets are down for the fifth consecutive day with tech-heavy Nasdaq leading the fall. The tremors of this fall are being felt in the tech sector in India too with IT under performing hugely. FIIs who had become buyers in early January have again turned sellers with a massive sell figure of Rs 4680 cr yesterday. This is a major headwind for the market in the short run. As expected, 2022 has begun with heightened volatility and this is likely to continue. Since valuations continue to be high and FIIs are likely to sell more on rallies, retail investors should not rush in to buy aggressively. Calibrated buying in quality IT and financials can be considered on declines.
