Indian Indices Continue Momentum; Metal Sector Up 1.9%
Mon, 15 May 11:30 am

After opening the day on a positive note, Indian share markets have continued their momentum and are presently trading in the green. Sectoral indices are trading on a positive note with stocks in the metal sector, banking sector and healthcare sector leading the gains.

The BSE Sensex is trading up 134 points (up 0.5%) and the NSE Nifty is trading up 42 points (up 0.5%). The BSE Mid Cap index is trading up by 1.2%, while the BSE Small Cap index is trading up by 0.8%. The rupee is trading at 64.17 to the US$.

In the news for quarterly result announcements, Vedanta, JK Tyre, Colgate-Palmolive, South Indian Bank, Kajaria Ceramics are some of the companies that are scheduled to report their quarterly earnings today.

Also, shares of Titan Company and Inox Wind are witnessing selling pressure after the companies reported less than expected performance during the fourth quarter.

One must note that there's much hoopla surrounding the ongoing earnings season. However, if one has to go by the year-on-year performance, there's nothing to cheer much about it.

As an article in Business Standard suggests, the earnings growth has slid from 15.6% in FY16 to just 7.2% in FY17, making it the worst in three years. This is despite the lower tax outgo and other income boost. Domestic market focused companies too have slowed down due to notebandi.

This trend can be seen clearly in the chart below:

Earnings in Contrast with Market Trends

One must note that the actual performance for the last quarter of FY17 has been much below brokerage estimates.

All of this brings us to the question of how can one make money in a rising market, with little support from earning trends and with brokerages getting it all wrong?
