Market View: Ajit Mishra, VP – Research, Religare Broking
The recent rebound in the markets can be largely attributed to the recovery in the global indices while the earnings have been mixed so far. Importantly, Nifty has crossed the hurdle at 17,400 after two weeks of consolidation and we now expect a gradual recovery to the 17,600+ zone. Apart from the global markets, we feel participation of key sectors on a rotational basis would be critical for a sustained up move. Amid all positivity, traders should maintain their focus on overnight risk management.

Zee’s 99.99% of shareholders have given their approval for the Zee Sony merger. That has led to almost an end to the speculations over the deal and crossed the major hurdles. This would make the merged entity the largest media house with a market share above 26%. Outlook is positive. Ad revenues should increase from here considering pick up in the economy, good monsoons driving rural sales thus in turn elevating the FMCG and Auto verticals, which are their main advertisers. Market share growth happening in Hindi and Marathi GECs should help the cause ultimately. Sony merger gives an altogether different fillip to the business. Subscription business should get a good lift from the final implementation of the NTO2.0 in Q3 post which the linear business along with OTT Zee5 should togetherly provide the required push. We remain BUY on the stock. Shall revisit our numbers post Q2 results.

The recovery and push beyond 17430, that we anticipated yesterday, is probably gathering steam for a run up to18100, with initial stop at 17580. Given the sharp decline that ensued a few days back while attempting a breach of 17430, the downside marker needs to be placed near 17240/180.

The whipsaw movement in the mother market of the US is a reflection of the fast changing perception about the US inflation expectations, terminal Fed rate and direction of the US economy. A section of market participants now feel more optimistic about a soft landing of the US economy and have now turned bullish about the market. It remains to be seen whether this view gathers wider acceptance and sustains.In India bulls are gaining strength aided by India’s growth outperformance, good early Q2 results, declining FII selling, steadily rising DII buying and the optimism ushered in by the festive season. Bank Nifty is resilient with the potential to take banking stocks as well as Nifty higher.
