At the close, the Nifty 50 was at 24,302.15 up by 0.06%

On July 4, the NSE Nifty 50 index exhibited a mixed performance, starting positively with a marginal increase of 0.06% and closing slightly higher. The index reached an intraday high above 24,400, marking a historic milestone, yet failed to sustain these levels, closing near its daily low. Despite forming a small negative candle, Nifty managed to close above the previous day’s doji, indicating a potential consolidation phase with an upward bias.

Opening at 24,369.95, Nifty touched an all-time high of 24,401 early in the day, maintaining positivity throughout most of the session. However, last-hour selling pressure trimmed most intraday gains, resulting in a flat closure. Ultimately, Nifty closed at 24,302.15, up by 15.65 points or 0.06%.

Meanwhile, India’s Sensex achieved a significant milestone, closing above 80,000 for the first time, mirroring Nifty’s resilience above 24,300. Despite initial gains, both indices experienced retracements, ending marginally higher.

In the broader context, Indian markets mirrored gains in Asian counterparts, bolstered by favorable U.S. economic data hinting at potential interest rate cuts. IT stocks led the charge amidst the weekly F&O expiry, showcasing robust performance amid improving quarterly earnings outlook and reduced U.S. inflationary pressures.

Investor sentiment remains buoyant, supported by expectations of further rate cuts in September, renewed foreign institutional investor (FII) interest, and optimistic outlooks on government spending and corporate earnings.

Rupee Resilience Against US Dollar Amidst Market Volatility

The Indian rupee put up a fight on Thursday, managing to close nearly unchanged against the US dollar. This resilience came despite initial weakness caused by rising crude oil prices, a major concern for importers like India.

Fortunately, positive developments in the domestic stock market helped bolster the rupee. Key indexes like the Nifty 50 reached record highs, attracting foreign investments and providing much-needed support for the currency.

Throughout the trading day, the rupee fluctuated slightly. It opened at 83.52 per dollar, briefly touched a high of 83.48, and dipped to a low of 83.56. However, by the closing bell, it settled at 83.50, just a single paisa lower than the previous day.

This outcome suggests that the rupee is finding some stability, despite external pressures. While the future remains uncertain, the strong performance of the domestic stock market offers a glimmer of hope for continued stability in the value of the rupee.

Stocks Highlights

Tata Motors Ltd. demonstrated resilience in recent trading sessions, with its share price climbing 2.75% to reach Rs 1,002.50 from its previous close of Rs 975.65. The company’s return on equity (ROE) for the year ending March 31, 2024, stood impressively at 36.97%, surpassing its five-year average of -1.07%. This strong ROE reflects Tata Motors’ effective utilization of shareholder funds.

Moreover, Tata Motors outpaced its three-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) in revenue, achieving a growth rate of 26.61% compared to the CAGR of 20.47%. However, cautionary signals appeared with a recent sell signal triggered by a 10-day moving average crossover, historically resulting in an average price decline of -3.24% within seven days.

In terms of stock performance against the Nifty 100 index, Tata Motors delivered outstanding returns over the past three years, posting a remarkable 184.16% gain, significantly outperforming the index’s 52.57% return.

Despite this setback, HDFC Bank reported robust loan book growth, with advances increasing by 54.39% year-on-year, surpassing its five-year CAGR of 19.71%. This growth underscores HDFC Bank’s strong position in the banking sector.

Similarly, HDFC Bank exceeded its three-year revenue CAGR, achieving a growth rate of 99.35% compared to the CAGR of 37.37%, reflecting its effective revenue generation strategies. However, historical data revealed that only 0.99% of trading sessions in the last 19 years saw intraday gains exceeding 5%, indicating market volatility challenges.

In terms of stock performance relative to the Nifty 100 index, HDFC Bank posted a modest three-year return of 19.48%, contrasting with the index’s 52.57% return.
