Jyoti Roy – DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel Broking:

Aptus Value Housing Finance made a tepid listing on the bourses and closed below the issue price on the first day of trading largely due to negative market sentiments. However, the issue received good response and was subscribed by 17.2x due to strong demand from QIB and NIB investors. We had given a subscribe rating to the IPO from a long term perspective and expect the company to do well in the long run given consistent strong financial performance, industry leading return ratios and good asset quality. 

Despite the tepid listing we would recommend investors to hold on the positions from a long term perspective as we believe that the company has got strong fundamentals and should do well once the volatility in the market subsides.

Chemplast Sanmar made a tepid listing on the bourses and closed below the issue price on the first day of trading. This was mostly in line with our expectations given the lukewarm response to the IPO which was subscribed by just 2.17x. 

We had given a neutral rating to the IPO given our concerns due to high debt on books and negative net worth despite having a positive outlook on the chemicals. Given that the stock is trading below the issue price we would recommend investors who had been allotted shares in the IPO to exit the stock closer to the issue price.

Kshitij Purohit, Lead International & Commodities at CapitalVia Global Research: USD-INR fell strongly to 74.10 at the open and plummeted 11 paisa / US dollar overnight due to decreasing uncertainty ahead of the Fed meeting in Jackson Hole last Friday. The trend remains bearish, and support in the range of 74.12-74.10 might be tested at any time.

If prices close below 74.10 on the 15-minute chart, we may see a drop to the 74.00-73.98 zone, which is the next immediate support zone, as there is a gap between 74.00 and 74.10, and prices move extremely quickly in these gaps. On the upside, 74.29-74.31, which had previously served as a support zone, may now serve as resistance in the coming sessions.
