It was trading at a premium to the largecap index during the euphoria of 2007 and 2017. People who invested in smallcap stocks back then suffered losses or accrued sub-par returns. The current valuations of small-caps seem reasonable," says Sahil Shah of Edelweiss MF.

Analysts are unsure how the Jimny product launch will fare and see competition as fierce, with the EV market being a key arena for Maruti to improve its performance.

The Nifty50 index remained within a narrow trading range, and closed with a slight gain of 29.30 points on a weekly basis, despite flirting with important resistance zones. Weak market breadth and the very low level of the India VIX are delaying an otherwise imminent breakout, and if the breakout occurs in these conditions, a questionable rally is expected. The RRG analysis shows Nifty Consumption, Auto, and MidCap 100 indices are inside the leading quadrant and may outperform broader markets, while Nifty Financial Services and BankNifty have shifted to the weakening quadrant.


For most of us, spreading your money across different baskets is the best way to protect and grow your money.

Once we are able to cross above 18,750 on a closing basis, then short covering action can be there in the market. Then possibly Nifty can scale a new all-time high also. Buy-on-dip should be your strategy on the downside.

As far as the IT sector is concerned, much of the underperformance is over. If you notice the trajectory of most IT companies, they have fallen quite a bit in the last one odd year.

And that said, we always have to weigh the outlook with the underlying valuations of the company.



Gold closed the week at $1,960.88 with a gain of 0.70%. Two-year US yields rose by almost 2% while ten-year yields increased by 1.11%. The US weekly jobless claims rose by 28,000 jobs to 261,000 jobs, the highest level reached in almost six years, sparking recession concerns. The US ISM non-manufacturing report for May also disappointed on multiple fronts. The US Federal Reserve indicated it will skip a rate hike at its June FOMC meeting. The Bank of Canada and the Reserve Bank of Australia unexpectedly hiked rates against market consensus, and the Swiss National Bank also issued an inflation warning.

The Q4FY23 results were slightly better than expected, with the Nifty50 index showing 15% YoY earnings growth and the broader market seeing approximately 10% growth. Financials and auto enjoyed the most significant upgrades, while IT, pharma, and metals experienced downside. The Indian economy witnessed a real GDP growth rate of 7.2% in FY23 with the market expecting better corporate profit performance in FY24, despite a projected slowdown. Companies with stable domestic demand and those oriented towards the domestic market are likely to benefit the most, with value-oriented investments and stock-specific approaches recommended.

Total Shareholder Return (TSR) measures an investor's rate of return after buying a company's stock. It is calculated by adding a company's change in share price and total dividend earned during the investment period, and then dividing it by the share price at the beginning of the year. Net income growth, earnings per share (EPS), and price-to-earnings (PE) ratio are the drivers of TSR. However, cost-cutting, declining PE multiples, and dividend yield can impact TSR. It is vital to assess other stock ratios and factors beyond TSR to evaluate stocks better and identify promising investment opportunities.


In the past, Indian citizens preferred traditional saving options due to the high-risk perception of the equity market.

Long Straddle and Long Strangle are option buying strategies used by traders in unpredictable events such as election results or company AGMs. For a long straddle, they buy an at-the-money call and an at-the-money put together, making a profit in a heavily rising or falling market. A long strangle, however, uses out-of-the-money options instead. The opposite of these strategies is a short straddle, selling at-the-money call and put to benefit only when the market is flat. It requires more capital and can be riskier than the long strategies.

Indian hotel companies have been enjoying a winning streak on the stock market, with share prices of major players up by over 50% in the past year.

Optimistic hoteliers have added more rooms to match the demand, resulting in a surge in occupancy rates. The aviation sector has also reported great results, with healthy growth potential ahead. Investors are advised to look to quality names within the theme, with the stock prices already factoring in a fast recovery.

Binance.US has announced that it will be halting dollar deposits as its banking partners prepare to put a freeze on all dollar withdrawal channels due to the US SEC's lawsuit against the parent company Binance. Meanwhile, Robinhood has delisted three crypto tokens identified by the SEC as securities in its lawsuits against Binance and Coinbase. These actions raise questions about whether Binance.US can survive the lawsuit. Binance has denied the charges, but it could not deny the SEC's assertion of jurisdiction over most tokens, potentially putting many other crypto exchanges in the firing line.

Cryptocurrency exchange FTX has been granted permission by a US judge to redact the names of its individual customers from bankruptcy filings indefinitely. The judge warned that publishing identifying information would expose customers to risks such as scams and identity theft. The company was also permitted to remove customer names of companies and institutional investors temporarily, with a further review scheduled for 90 days. FTX and liquidators overseeing the wind-down of the firm's Bahamian affiliate were ordered to try and avoid inconsistent rulings in separate court proceedings in the US and Bahamas.

Robinhood Markets said on Friday it is removing three cryptocurrency tokens from its platform, days after the U.S. securities regulator's crackdown against the industry's biggest exchanges.

Stoxbox's Swapnil Shah has recommended Bank of Baroda, AB Capital, Schaeffler India, Ugar Sugar, and Tata Communications as top buys for the coming week. While the Nifty Index faces hurdles around levels of 18,810-18,750, Shah believes the primary trend remains healthy and anticipates the index will take a breather and amass bullish strength amid crucial support near 18,450 before continuing upwards. Shah advises waiting a few quarters before committing to midcap IT stocks due to deterioration in the global economic outlook. Meanwhile, Suzlon Energy's cash injection, along with government measures related to bidding, makes it a good buy for the long term.

A broadening equity rally in the US is underway, expanding beyond mega-cap companies and into small caps, energy shares and industrial stocks, resulting in the rise of the S&P 500 nearly 12% year-to-date. Investors, repositioning portfolios primed for a widely-expected recession, are beginning to reap the rewards of increased allocation to economically sensitive markets. This development may ease worries of the market's narrow leadership, previously dominated by just seven mega-cap companies, some of which will have contributed to the majority of the index's gains for 2021. The resurgence in small cap companies has also seen the Russell 2000 small cap index rise by 6.6% this month alone.

Tesla's stock is on track to more than double this year, thanks to several positive developments. The electric vehicle company has seen an 11-day run of good news, adding over $194bn to its market valuation.

In addition, Tesla has been helped by all of its Model 3 sedans becoming full eligible for a US tax credit and its AI tech catching the investment community's attention.

Several online bond platforms in India are considering creating an industry association similar to the Association of Mutual Funds in India, after a request from the Securities and Exchange Board of India. The association would help address industry issues and grievances. IndiaBonds, GoldenPi and The Fixed Income and Bond Bazar are among the regulators currently recognized.

The regulatory body has also implemented new rules around transparency, settlements, redressal mechanisms and offerings.

Shares of the Indian Energy Exchange (IEX) fell 18% in two trading sessions due to the Ministry of Power's directions to initiate a market coupling process. This could make prices uniform across platforms, which could reduce the role of energy exchanges. The government entity will make the price discovery, and the exchanges will only serve as an aggregation platform. Analysts advise investors to avoid the stock until the coupling issue is clarified. Market coupling means that a government entity will make the price discovery based on which power will be dispatched on platforms like IEX.

Investors in India withdrew INR3,240 crore ($475m) from equity mutual funds in May, half the prior month's total as they looked to cash in on the equities rally. Despite the slump in equity mutual funds, inflows to systematic investment plans hit an all-time high of INR14,749 crore, versus INR13,728 crore in April. Assets under management also rose to INR42.94 lakh crore. While small and midcap funds attracted flows, large-cap, flexi-cap and focused funds lost funds, along with ELSS schemes. Large-cap funds are struggling to beat the benchmark, leading investors to pursue passive funds.

Indian equity markets started positively, but weak sentiments persist after the central bank's decision to maintain the key rates unchanged, as a caution towards inflation, while positive macro news buoyed the market. 75 smallcap stocks delivered double-digit gains with the top gainers being Greenlam Industries, EKI Energy Services, Suzlon Energy, and Indian Hume Pipe Company. Midcap segments, only Torrent Power, Hindustan Aeronautics, and Ajanta Pharma traded in the double digits. L&T was the top performer in the Sensex market. The release of May's domestic inflation data and the outcomes of the FOMC meeting is expected to play a role in shaping the market trend.

Tesla shares rose by 4.06%, as General Motors agreed to use the company's Supercharger network. The S&P 500 gained 0.11% to 4,298.86 points, marking an extension of its winning streak to four consecutive weeks.

Goldman's chief U.S. equity strategist David Kostin said in a note to clients the firm's 2023 earnings per share forecast for the S&P 500 of $224 remains unchanged and assumes a soft landing for the U.S. economy, as the economics team projects only a 25% probability of a recession over the next 12 months.

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) has cancelled the registration of Emkay Commotrade for giving access to illegal 'paired contracts' on the defunct National Spot Exchange (NSEL). SEBI said it raised doubts on the company's competency to act as a registered securities market intermediary and that the company cannot be called a 'fit and proper person' for holding the certificate of registration. The NSEL's 'paired contracts' trading scheme saw investors incur a loss of INR 5,500 crore ($736.8m). Emkay's clients must withdraw or transfer their securities or funds within the next 15 days.

Indian electric scooter maker Ola Electric is kicking off meetings with potential investors in Singapore and the US to gauge interest in its planned $1bn initial public offering.

Though Ola is yet to file regulatory papers for approval, it is thought to be planning to do so by August. It wants to explain the growth and potential of India's nascent electric vehicle market to investors.

Shares of Tesla jumped nearly 7% following a partnership between General Motors (GM) and Ford to use Tesla's electric-vehicle charging network, which could make Tesla Superchargers a new industry standard in the US. This move ensures that the country's EV market can access Tesla's North American Charging Standard (NACS), which presents a big win for the rare partnership, making it the primary network in the country. The tie-up will increase the pressure on other automakers to upgrade their networks to work with Tesla's. Tesla's charging network is more widespread and reliable than the alternative combined charging system.

Despite global economic activity slowing down, the absence of any significant financial accidents, robust employment conditions, and stronger balance sheets have aided in withstanding the normalisation cycle better than expected. However, the pressure on demand conditions may continue to rise due to higher nominal yield curves and tightened lending standards. Although corporate earnings have surpassed expectations, inflation will likely remain elevated compared to pre-Covid levels. The worst of the inflation scare may be over, but central banks are unlikely to resort to rate cuts unless there is a threat to financial stability. RBI's proactive stance has supported India's growth momentum, but fiscal deficit run rate is 6%, and pre-emptive loosening can backfire, resulting in higher inflation. Thus, rates may remain higher for longer, and short-term funds may provide healthier accruals without taking significant duration risk.

Equity-linked saving schemes offer tax benefits under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act. Equity mutual funds have a lock-in period of 3 years and gains are taxed at 15% for less than a year.
