Sensex, Nifty End Higher as Auto & Power Stocks Witness Buying; Tata Motors Rallies 9%

Indian share markets witnessed volatile trading activity throughout the day today and ended marginally higher.

Benchmark indices scaled fresh peaks with the NSE Nifty hitting the 18,000 mark for the first time ever, shrugging off weakness in other Asian markets.

Gains in automobile, metal, financial and power stocks pushed the market higher, though sharp losses in IT shares such as TCS and Infosys limited the upside.

At the closing bell, the BSE Sensex stood higher by 77 points (up 0.1%).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed higher by 51 points (up 0.3%).

Tata Motors and Coal India were among the top gainers today.

TCS and Tech Mahindra, on the other hand, were among the top losers today.

The SGX Nifty was trading at 17,950, up by 50 points, at the time of writing.

Both, the BSE Mid Cap index and the BSE Small Cap index ended up by 0.6%.

3 "Super Smallcaps" You Didn't Know About

You may not have heard of these 3 "super smallcaps" ever before...

The mainstream press doesn't cover them... Most brokers don't know about them either...

Stocks like these 3 "super smallcaps" only come to your notice when they have rallied by hundreds or even thousands of percent... and are all over the news!

Richa revealed it all during her Super Smallcaps Summit

If you missed this event for some reason, then you can watch the special replay of this event.

Here's why...

The Smallcap to Sensex ratio, a metric referred to get a sense of relative valuations, currently stands at 0.48 times. To be sure, this is higher than a median of 0.43 times.

And yet, it's the lowest of all the peaks in the smallcaps so far. In the last cycle which peaked in January 2018, when the ratio touched 0.49, the peak was still 9 months away.

Here's what Richa wrote in one of the editions of Profit Hunter...

  • When it comes to buying smallcap stocks, especially at this point in the rebound rally, you will need a bottom up approach, and a long term horizon.

    In fact, if you don't have the stomach to withstand a 20%-30% kind of corrections and volatility, this space may not be for you at all. And you should stop reading right here.

As per Richa, smallcaps are a great opportunity to make some big returns. But you need to stay disciplined when it comes to allocating money. And you need to be sharp when picking the right stocks.

Moving on to news from the IPO space...

Blackstone may get 5x returns on Fino Investment

US private equity (PE) major Blackstone Group is likely to make more than five times return on its investment in Fino Payments Bank when the latter goes ahead with its public listing planned for next month.

The Navi Mumbai-based scheduled commercial bank is a fully-owned subsidiary of Fino Paytech, which is backed by marquee investors such as Blackstone Group, Mauritius-based Headland Asian Ventures Fund 3 (HAV 3 Holdings), Intel Capital, World Bank unit and global development finance institution international finance corporation (IFC), ICICI Group and Bharat Petroleum (BPCL).

The decision on shareholding dilution will be decided by November.

New York-headquartered Blackstone Group had first invested Rs 1.5 bn (approximately US$33 m) in Fino Limited, now Fino Payments Bank, for a significant minority stake in July 2011.

With an expected valuation of Rs 53 bn for the upcoming initial public offering (IPO), its 15.13% stake in the company is now valued at more than Rs 8 bn.

Thus, the investor is set to make annualized returns of close to 18% with its initial investment growing by more than 5.3 times.

Besides, Fino has already expressed its intent of looking to raise a pre-IPO round and a rights issue of Rs 750 m at the holding company level (Fino Paytech).

According to a media report, the proceeds of this rights issue will go to a microfinance subsidiary, Fino Finance.

If the listing goes ahead as planned, it will be the third IPO for a Blackstone portfolio company this year after Sona Comstar and TaskUS.

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, stay tuned for more updates from this space.
