In the news from the telecom sector, Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea are in focus today after Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) rejected Telecom Regulatory Authority of India's (TRAI) predatory pricing rule.

Telecom Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal (TDSAT) on Thursday set aside sector regulator TRAI's rule on predatory pricing for lack of transparency in the guidelines over determining market share and rates of services.

The shares of both scripts gained up to 10% on the back of the above news.

The move came as a major relief to Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea which had in March challenged the amendment made by TRAI in the Telecommunication Tariff order.

In another news, Reliance communication is also in focus today after Supreme Court directed Department of Telecommunications (DoT) to issue NOC to allow company the spectrum sale within 2 days.

Earlier, Supreme Court allowed spectrum sale from Reliance Communications to Jio and directed company to furnish corporate guarantee of Rs 14 billion to DoT.

Reliance communication share price is presently trading up by 3.5%

Moving on to the news form the automobiles sector, Motherson Sumi is witnessing buying interest today as media reports suggested that the company is in talks to acquire or merge with Germany-based Leoni, the largest maker of special automotive cables globally.

Motherson Sumi, which is a joint venture (JV) between India's Samvardhana Motherson Group and Japan's Sumitomo Wiring Systems, acquired several companies in recent years, adding to its range of automotive interior products including rearview mirrors, wiring harnesses and rubber and plastic components.

The company has been scouting for a sizeable acquisition target in Europe with the help of an investment bank. Any deal with Leoni could be worth more than 1 billion euros.

The auto company most recently acquired Reydel Automotive, which manufactures door panels and cockpit modules, for about Rs $200 million to help meet its target of not having any component, customer or country contribute more than 15% to its business by 2020.

At the time of writing, Motherson Sumi share price was trading up by 4%.

To know more about the company you can read Motherson Sumi Q2FY19 result analysis and Motherson Sumi Annual Report analysis on our website.

Speaking of auto companies, 2018 hasn't been good for stalwart auto and auto ancillary companies. No wonder the BSE Auto index is down 23% this year.

Have a look at the chart below that shows how India's big auto companies have fared this year.

Are Auto Companies Running Out of Gas?

Here's what Sarvajeet wrote about the auto stocks in one of the editions of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

The biggest losers are Tata Motors (down 57%) and Motherson Sumi (down 34%).

Others like Maruti Suzuki, Hero Motocorp, Bajaj Auto have fallen between more than 20%.

So, is this a good time to buy select auto stocks?

Kunal and I at Smart Money Secrets certainly think so.

Richa Agarwal, editor of Hidden Treasure, agrees with us.

With the recent correction in the entire auto space, she initiated a coverage on engine manufacturer this month. This company enjoys the benefits of a strong brand and a supportive parent.

Also, one of Richa's earlier 'buy at lower level' recommendations has now become a 'Buy' recommendation.

As per her forecast, there is an upside potential of more than 50%.

She sent a special update in this regard. Hidden Treasure subscribers can access it here.
