Tata Motors, L&T, Hindalco Industries and others

The Bears maintained their dominance on Dalal Street for the fourth consecutive session on May 11, despite positive sentiment from their global counterparts. Selling in technology, autos, FMCG stocks, L&T and Bajaj Finance weighed on the market, although banks and HDFC limited losses. Benchmarks recovered around 1% loss from the day’s low, with the Nifty50 firmly defending the psychological 16,000 mark. The BSE Sensex fell 276 points to 54,088, while the Nifty50 was down 73 points at 16,167.

Sushant Bhansali, CEO of Ambit Asset Management, said: “The pressure of rising inflation on corporate earnings has been quite visible for the past 2 quarters and is expected to continue for another 1-2 quarters. As a result, earnings are more degraded than enhanced by the markets. The combination of a downward earnings revision and a reversal in the interest rate cycle is increasing market volatility. We believe that we are in the consolidation phase after the great bull run of the last two years, a well deserved break. Profit booking alongside asset allocation revisions will drag markets lower while new flows will push markets higher during this phase. The consolidation phase will continue for a few more months depending, to a large extent, on the evolution of global inflation.”
