MARKET QUOTE | Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services

"Increased tension between the US and Russia over Ukraine sent oil prices rising and forced investors to dump risky assets. Risk sentiment was further dampened ahead of the Fed’s emergency meeting which heightened fears of aggressive monetary tightening. On the domestic front, the annual WPI inflation eased marginally to 12.96% in January from 13.56% in December, but still high, amid moderation in the fuel and power prices"

MARKET QUOTE | Mohit Ralhan, Managing Partner at TIW Captial Group

"The volatility has gone up with the increase in uncertainty over tensions between Russia and Ukraine. The market is under downward pressure due to the looming threat of war. It is likely to have a short-term impact since the risk of actual elongated war between two nuclear powers is quite limited. It is expected that the tensions will get dissipated through geopolitical manoeuvres over next few weeks, but market volatility will be high during this period."

WPI data reaction | DRE Reddy, CEO and Managing Partner at CRCL LLP

"The WPI inflation data for the month of January eases at 12.96% even though the inflation in food spiked to 10.33% in January 2022 from 9.56% in December 2021. The vegetable price rise rate jumped to 38.45% against 31.56% in the previous month. It is also understood that the growing rate of inflation is primarily due to the rise in prices of mineral oils, crude petroleum, natural gas etc as compared to the corresponding month of the previous year. It can be expected that wholesale inflation is to weaken as we move ahead considering the sentiments of careful optimism. The recent MPC announcement chose to maintain the repo rate at 4 percent for the 10th time in a row was purely to support growth as well as manage the inflationary pressures. Moving forward, as the crude prices soften in the summer season and supply issues get resolved will help ease WPI inflation in the next few months"

Motilal Oswal Financial Services on Reliance Industries

"We value RIL’s standalone segment at 7.5x, telecom at 17x FY24E, and retail at 31x FY24E EV/EBITDA. With a target price of INR2,800, we reiterate our BUY rating on the stock. While it is difficult to value the recent foray into renewables as well as the future foray into chemicals, the current valuation multiple of the standalone business may see an upward revision going forward. Key risks to our rating could be technology risks associated with the new age renewables, high capex as well as similar large-scale announcements by other global players."

Oil prices jump more than 1% to 7-year highs on supply jitters

Oil prices on Monday hit their highest in more than seven years on fears that a possible invasion of Ukraine by Russia could trigger U.S. and European sanctions that would disrupt exports from the world's top producer in an already tight market.

Brent crude futures was at $95.56 a barrel by 0235 GMT, up $1.12, or 1.2%, after earlier hitting a peak of $96.16, the highest since October 2014. U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude rose $1.28, or 1.4%, to $94.38 a barrel, hovering near a session-high of $94.94, the loftiest since September 2014.

Comments from the United States about an imminent attack by Russia on Ukraine have rattled global financial markets.

YES Securities on Computer Age Management Services

-Revenue yield remained flat sequentially as rise in share of equity in AUM offset the negative impact of telescopic pricing: The share of equity in AUM serviced now stands at 41%. Yield has, in fact, been broadly flat for 7-8 quarters now.

-EBITDA margin positively surprised but management was sombre in their guidance: EBITDA margin has been better than expected driven by better cost management 
through automation. Management stated that they continue to hold their prior guidance of EBITDA margin being in the early 40s in the favourable quarters.

-Non-MF initiatives moved closer to meaningful on-ground traction: The CRA business and the AA business both displayed underlying traction, providing hope.

-We maintain ‘Buy’ rating on CAMS with a revised price target of Rs 3396: We value CAMS at 50x FY23 P/E for an FY21-24E EPS CAGR of 23%.

YES Securities on Apollo Hospitals

"Apollo Hospitals ARPOB continue to gain traction with 14% increase on a blended basis in 9m FY22; a look at the ARPOB increase within some of the clusters (accounting for ~40% of cumulative operating beds) shows even faster increase on a 2-year CAGR basis at 15-19% (without international traffic in 9m FY22 carrying better embedded realization in the historical base). This shows the impact of mix change in the hospitals business over last 18 months as footfalls would have been volatile given the episodic impact of pandemic. While customer acquisition cost in the 24x7 business is likely to stay in a range in the near term, continued intensity in the online model would entail likely higher discounts. Capex of Rs15bn shows the need to augment volume growth as ARPOB can only drive so much, albeit no near term impact is seen in our forecast horizon. Retain SELL with unchanged multiple and TP Rs3,050."

MARKET QUOTE | V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

"Sentiments have turned very negative for the short-term with the heightened tension over the Ukraine crisis. Weakness in global markets is the direct fallout of the Ukraine crisis. Crude at an eight year high is another major macro concern for India. If crude remains at levels of $95 for an extended period of time, the RBI will be forced to revise upwards its 4.5% CPI inflation projection for FY23. Continuation of the accommodative monetary stance too will be difficult. While all these are negatives, diffusion of the Ukraine crisis  can trigger a sharp rebound in markets led by large-cap bluechips"
