Trend is similar to January 2021, pure equity net negative by 10k cr led by profit booking or get re-allocation to alternate investment avenues like real estate / direct equity or IPO’s. It is good to see positive flows in the dynamic / BAF category, this is a good category in current times where the asset allocation model rebalance portfolios between equities an cash using valuation models. Some meaningful consolidation of markets could lead investors to come back and make fresh allocations at some stage, there is general worry on valuations and the current rally possibly unreal and therefore investors seem to be trying to time in some way. First few days march look slightly better with the redemption velocity coming down, but need to wait for how it plays through the month.: Akhil Chaturvedi, Head of Sales & Distribution, Motilal Oswal Asset Management Company

With the coinciding of the Maharashtra Government budget announcement and International Women’s Day, it was only fitting that some special announcements were made to further empower women. They have announced that Stamp duty will be relaxed by 1% if the house is registered in the name of a woman. The majority of women are buying homes now not only as an investment but also for financial security. This step by the government ratifies their support towards female homebuyers. It will also help provide security to dependent women as more men will buy houses in the name of the women in their family.: Ram Raheja, Director at S Raheja Realty

BSE Sensex was trading 241 points or 0.48 per cent higher at 50,682, while the broader Nifty 50 index gained 63 points or 0.42 per cent to 15,018 

At the price of Rs 130 the annualised PE based on HY21 EPS comes to around 32. Comparing with other peers the issue looks moderately priced. 1/4th of the revenues of the company comes from exports which may boost going ahead owing to the China+1 strategy which would be likely adopted by global players. Diversified client base, capacity expansion, quality management, long term relationship with leading pharma companies and well-diversified product portfolio makes the company attractive. Also, the ongoing dream run in primary markets should be favourable for the company.: Abhay Doshi, Founder,, dealing in Pre-IPO & Unlisted Shares

Also, the preferential allotment was done at Rs 250 on October 17, 2020, then at Rs 197 on November 04, 2020. Again nothing had changed in 18 days for the preference price to fall 20%. Taking all of the above into account we have an ‘Avoid’ on the IPO: Aditya Kondawar, Founder and COO, JST Investments

At the upper price band of Rs 555, the issue is priced at a 69x P/E and 5.8x P/BV. Annualizing the 9MFY21 sales, the company is coming at 7.5x Price to sales. The valuations are astronomical. The biggest concern for us is that the investor turned Promoter Group (KPI LLC) did a preferential allotment at Rs 197 in Nov 2020. Fast forward 4 months the IPO is coming at an issue price of Rs 555. What really changed in 4 months that the per-share price went up 2.8x? Nothing really changed in 4 months – so the price increase in the share doesn’t make any sense at all.: Aditya Kondawar, Founder and COO, JST Investments

Diverse customer base, global footprint, in house R&D, vertical integration and supply chain efficiencies are the key strengths of the company which are turning the prospects positive. Considering the favorable outlook for the chemical sector in the upcoming period one can subscribe to Laxmi Organic issue with a medium to long term perspective.: Likhita Chepa, Senior Analyst, CapitalVia Global Research Limited

Derivative data suggests that 15100-15200 is likely to act as stiff resistance for the current weekly expiry. PE writers are active on 15000-14900 strikes which are likely to act as support for weekly expiry. Nifty continues to remain in an uptrend in the medium and long term, so buying on dips continues to be our preferred strategy.: Rajesh Palviya, Head – Technical & Derivatives Research, Axis Securities Ltd

Nifty is in consolidating range of 14800-15200 since last 4-5 trading sessions. The chart pattern suggests that if Nifty breaks and sustains above 15100 then it would witness fresh buying action which could lead Nifty towards 15200-15300, however, if Nifty breaks below 14900 level it would witness selling which would lead the index towards 14800-14700 levels. Nifty is trading above 20 and 50 day SMA’s indicating positive bias in the short to medium term.: Rajesh Palviya, Head – Technical & Derivatives Research, Axis Securities Ltd

Markets are witnessing choppy trading for the past few sessions, with bulls and bears fighting it out for control. Positive global triggers have supported the overall trend, however, India VIX, the volatility indicator, has risen from the recent lows of 20, indicating marginal increase in investor concern. Overall, the expiry is likely to witness enhanced volatility, with a broader-range for Nifty seen between 14800 – 15200 for the current weekly expiry. Maximum OI for the weekly series is seen at 15100 CE & 15000 PE: Aamar Deo Singh, Head, Advisory at Angel Broking

Global bourses are showing strength since the last couple of days and hence, our market is refusing to correct. But at the same time, FIIs have started some selling which is not letting our market breakout in the upward direction. Basically, we are trapped in a range of 14900-15200. So, if there is no major action in global markets for next two days, then expiry is likely to pan out somewhere in the range of 14950-15150: Sameet Chavan, Chief Technical Analyst, Angel Broking

The MTAR stock is expected to be listed on the exchanges on the 16th of March and if grey market premiums are anything to go by then it is going to be nothing short of a bumper listing.

We are treading towards the upper end of the Nifty range which is 15300. If we get past that, we would be out of the choppy zone and can then aim at achieving 15500-15600 on the index.

A good support lies at 14800 and as long as that is not violated, the overall trend continues to remain bullish.: Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments
