LATEST AFTER THE BELL

Nifty (+47, 11643): It appears that the tables have turned in favor of the bulls camp.

Nifty ended the day, up 0.30% as investors cheered an unexpected strong Chinese export data. All worldwide eyes now turn to earning season.

The big question: Will 4th quarter’s earnings live up to reputation of recent strength at Dalal Street!

Well, we will spy with one big eye and look into detail of the 4th quarter earnings from INFY & TCS. Digging deeper, commanding attention would be IT budget trends for Calendar Year 2019 and any big order wins! It’s quite natural, TCS & INFY will provide  big trigger for all IT stocks.

Now if the numbers are above street’s expectations then investors are bound to jump into our markets and bargain hunting is likely to be the theme in near term, with aggressive targets on Nifty at 11901-12000 zone. Alternatively, if INFY & TCS disappoints then obviously you know what to do…

Our call of the day suggests it may be safe to wade back into Dalal Street only If Nifty moves above 11,701 mark. Until then downside risk for Nifty at 11471 mark.

And if you are from aggressive traders camp then you should look to buy Reliance Industries on any intraday declines.

Our chart of the day suggests establishing long positions in stocks like RELIANCE INDUSTRIES, AMBUJA CEMENT & V GUARD on any early weakness.

IMPORTANT THEMES FOR THE DAY:

INFY & TCS will officially set afire the ceremonial starter’s pistol for the fourth quarter corporate earnings season.

Expect investors to keep a close eye on the guidance (FY20 outlook).

Yes, the street will be closely watching their growth outlook as that is likely to be a big trigger for all IT stocks. The other key thing which will command investors’ attention is IT budget trends for Calendar Year 2019 and any big order wins!

Long story short: Stay Nimble as a volatile day on cards with lots of twist and turn.

Now, let’s catching up with other key latest developments — and things you need to know before Dalal Street opens for trade this Friday morning.

1. The first phase of polling began yesterday spanning across 20 states and Union Territories. In the first phase, 91 out of 543 Lok Sabha constituencies went to polls. The counting of all votes will take place on May 23.

We suspect, market volatility will hit the roof ahead of general elections outcome.

2. In yesterday’s trade, Rail Vikas Nigam closed marginally higher at Rs 19.05 on Day 1.

3. The positive catalyst which kept keep downside limited in yesterday’s trade was India Meteorological Department’s indication that EL Nino conditions have weakened considerably and the assessment is that this unlikely to post any threat to the Southwest monsoon this year.

4. EU leaders’ move to grant the U.K. a delay to Brexit until Oct 31, 2019.
