Why Newgen Software Share Price is Falling

May 28, 2022

Why Newgen Software Share Price is Falling

In 2022, shares of Indian IT companies have been the top losers.

The Indian IT sector performed very well in 2020-21, during the Covid-19 pandemic and was one of the best performers in India.

The Russia-Ukraine conflict, negative sentiment around the Q4 results season, and continued selling by FIIs, have increased bears' grip on the Indian market.

Newgen Software rallied from Rs 195 to Rs 734 during pandemic However, this growth did not last for long and was short lived.

Currently, Newgen Software share price trades at Rs 378.5.

On a year-to-date (YTD) basis, Newgen Software share price has fallen 62.8%.

Let's dig a little deeper on what can be the probable reasons for the fall.

#1 NASDAQ Falls

The worldwide IT sector has suffered since the beginning of this year. The Nasdaq, which is heavily weighted toward technology sector, has plummeted.

The Nasdaq Composite is an American stock index that includes major technology companies like as Alphabet, Amazon, SNAP, and others.

The Nasdaq index is mirrored in Indian IT stocks. Whenever the Nasdaq falls overnight, Indian IT companies tend to follow suit.

As a result, you can see the parallel. Indian IT equities have been in the red as global tech giants have seen a significant correction.

#2 Attrition Rate at its Peak

Attrition is at an all-time high in the Indian IT sector.

TCS had an attrition rate of 17.4%, while Infosys and Wipro had rates of nearly 28% and 23.8% respectively in Q4.

This is a big leap from last year's figures and even quarterly figures.

Rapid digitalisation in the aftermath of the pandemic has increased the demand for IT professionals.

From entry-level IT workers to mid and senior-level executives, the IT tech field is bursting at the seams right now.

Many specialists are leaving established IT firms for start-ups with better growth potential.

Though IT sector has bright future aspects, similar is not visible in their financial sheets.

#3 Benchmark indices

In 2022, the BSE IT index fell 25%, or 9,524 points. In comparison, the 30-stock Sensex fell 7.4%, or 4,336 points, over the same time period.

Similarly, the Nifty IT index has slid from Rs 37,071.1 to Rs 28,641.6, a loss of 9,363 points or 25.3% year to date.

This year, FIIs have liquidated equities worth over Rs 1,600 bn in the Indian market, dampening confidence toward IT firms.

In terms of earnings, the majority of IT companies have fallen short of the consensus growth forecast. With IT businesses' margins expected to remain low in Q4, IT stocks have lost momentum.

Thus the IT sector has been under pressure since 2022.

Let's have a look at the performances of a few big players...

Company Name Closing on 27 May Fall in 2022 (%)
Wipro 467.7 58.4
Infosys 1,464.25 29.5
TCS 3,258.80 17.1
Tech Mahindra 1,124.95 58.6
Oracle Financial Services 3,178.65 30.4

#4 FII Selling

Foreign investors have sold shares of Newgen Software for the past three quarters. And the market seems to be factoring this effect.

FIIs held 20.5% stake in the company as of June 2021. Skip forward to March 2022, FIIs hold 15.7%. In the most recent quarter, FIIs reduced almost 2% exposure to the stock.

Even mutual funds offloaded a bit after buying for consecutive three quarters.

You can guess what happens when both FIIs and DIIs are selling shares.
