Domestic institutions have been strong buyers in the market over the last week, as 2QFY23 results have come in line or stronger than expected, thus far. 5 out of 6 Nifty companies and 12 out of 20 BSE200 companies which have reported thus far have surprised positively. With a quarter of relatively softer commodity prices, we expect the earnings season to be relatively strong going ahead as well. However, developments in global bond markets have been more challenging and the macro environment continues to remain clouded by second order impact of higher interest rates as well as continuing strong inflation prints. While seasonality favours a strong month for global equity markets, we continue to believe that upsides for Indian markets may remain capped due to adverse valuation differential relative to EM peers and hence, muted foreign flows. We prefer Banking, Autos and Consumer discretionary sectors over cyclical

The second quarter is traditionally a weak one for the cement sector, with lower demand as construction activity slows down on account of the monsoons. Demand was low during July and August 2022, showing some sign of revival in September, 2022. Pick-up in retail demand was on the back of pent-up demand accumulation during the monsoons, pre-Diwali construction and repair work gaining momentum, and pre-election tailwinds. Institutional demand was led by increased construction activity after the receding monsoons.

There are two factors supporting the ongoing rally in the market: One, support from the mother market US aided by some excellent quarterly results and two, FII selling getting completely overwhelmed by DII buying. DIIs bought stocks for Rs 5290 crores in the cash market during the last 3 trading days against FII selling of Rs 1536 crores. This complete dominance of DIIs over FIIs is triggering short covering too. Good Q2 results are imparting resilience in segments like IT and financials.
