shares to buy | RIL RIL share price: Defensives will be relevant as it is a year of sector rotation: Vikash Kumar Jain https://beaconatbangsar.com/shares-to-buy-ril-ril-share-price-defensives-will-be-relevant-as-it-is-a-year-of-sector-rotation-vikash-kumar-jain/ Thu, 20 Jan 2022 03:59:00 +0000 https://beaconatbangsar.com/shares-to-buy-ril-ril-share-price-defensives-will-be-relevant-as-it-is-a-year-of-sector-rotation-vikash-kumar-jain/ “FII money will be important and could be more important if this DII liquidity dries up due to improving short-term debt yields,” says Vikash Kumar Jain, Investment Analyst, CLSA.

In one of your recent notes, you mentioned that you expect banks as well as year-over-year market earnings growth in FY23. Where within Reliance do you think that the greatest disturbance occurs? What makes the case stronger for the greats to get bigger and better in the years to come?
I wouldn’t want to be stock specific, but it’s clearly one of the few conglomerates that isn’t really impacted by the disruptions; if anything, he could be the beneficiary because he’s there in every theme out there. So longer term, if you look at most of the important themes that are playing out – whether it’s technology, e-commerce, organized retail, green energy as well as green inflation – that could benefit generally.

It is therefore in this title that simple short-term earnings growth is progressive. There are about 10 names that make up only about a third of Nifty and contribute 80% of this additional earnings growth and that include some big banks as well as some commodity names. In fact, five of these names feature in our targeted portfolios. We have a focused portfolio where we look at around 12 stocks, including three banks and three commodity names. There is therefore a very clear preference to be overweight on banks and commodities. This is very clearly an underweight in IT and Consumer.



What are your thoughts on what is happening in the Indian pharmaceutical space, including healthcare services? In India, pharmaceuticals have taken a step back and are no longer the crème de la crème they used to be and as sought after as they are in 2020?
It is clear that an element of sector rotation is at play. These are the stocks that were doing very well at the start of Covid, being seen as big beneficiaries of Covid. Some of them have gone up in hopes of cures and Covid vaccines which could be a great beneficiary for them. Sometimes, when there is so much excitement, stocks go into overdrive, and then there is a period of consolidation. We think we may be nearing the end of that consolidation for some of the pharmaceutical names. We have one of the pharmaceutical names and through that we are overweight in our positioning in the pharmaceutical sector.

Also read: What will boost the market in 2022?

Among defensives, we like pharma and utilities much more than IT and consumer staples. We must not forget that we start the year with things that are not on our side. This is not an equivocal year where we can tap on the table on what will happen. This is a year where there will be a balancing act. Right now, the big worry is that Nifty’s absolute and relative valuation is at levels that historically haven’t given us great returns.

With consumer sentiment not being so correct, these are the two big risks at the start of the year. The balancing factor is that Nifty has the best earnings growth story among the big markets in the world other than the Philippines, which is not such a big market and should kind of offset some of those valuation issues. So there will be times when defensives become relevant because it’s going to be a year of big sector rotation and not really a runaway on the benchmark and if we were to look at defensives, pharma would be a favorite for us .

Your team made a counter call on real estate. Do you think a 50 or 75 basis point rate hike will change the affordability factor and the uptrend of the housing cycle?
The call is more about expectations, basically looking at the type of registration data etc. that we saw last year, which were also stimulated by the tax advantages granted by the State. We must therefore be more selective on certain names, where we see a net benefit of consolidation and new launches or new markets helping them rather than a call to the cycle. We don’t believe we are in a booming real estate cycle that will accelerate dramatically, but yes, real estate and investments in general are going to experience a gradual recovery that we favor. So that’s our thought process.

Sometimes, like in the pharmaceutical industry, some of these names can get ahead and that’s where we see periods of consolidation. It really has to do with that call rather than saying the cycle will turn prematurely because that’s not what we’re saying. I understand what you’re saying from an affordability perspective, but some of these interest rate sensitive topics may take a back seat during the time that rate hikes are happening and yields are rising and more now that there is a clear link between repo rates and home loans. So there could be more of an inventory reaction rather than a slowdown in activity per se.

Can we say that you don’t really have to worry about a lot of withdrawals or liquidity contractions because 2021 has not been a year where FII liquidity has dominated. Rather, it was domestic liquidity that made all the difference. So while the money may have come in the IPO market, the FII’s liquidity wasn’t huge and we shouldn’t be worried about that?
Well, that’s true, but I’ll tell you why we can’t ignore it. If I were to look at the last six months on a rolling six month basis, at the end of December net FII outflows were the lowest we’ve seen in the last 15 years, other than maybe two months after IL&FS and may -to be a month in January 2016. So apart from these three months, you have to go around the GFC level to find this kind of sale by the FII.

Unlike previous periods where the rolling six-month exits would have meant that Nifty’s rolling six-month returns also turned negative, that hasn’t happened and it worries me that it will bounce back from here because generally what happened when FIIs sold was Nifty also used to become more attractive relative to its peers. But that hasn’t happened so far. So I would say that just blind liquidity won’t help because valuations come into play and that’s where I would bring the argument from the domestic side.

We have to appreciate this kind of steep yield curve. We will have to go back to 2008-2009 when it was so steep because of the RBI crunch. With a general tightening of liquidity as well as rate hikes, perhaps short-term yields will also improve and as that improves, if one were to make a simple comparison of bond valuations by versus equities looking at earnings yield and 10-year bond yields, we’re at levels that have historically led to Nifty’s sub-5% return. So clearly it’s not in our favor.

And so, what is the worrying environment for the coming months? As short-term yields go up and if we see a few months of negative returns in the market, some of the domestic money could start going back to debt and a lot of it has come because there had very little return to make in the short term one year, two years of investments in the form of debt. That will change as liquidity tightens and if short-term returns in equity markets aren’t so great, then that money could start flowing out.

Anyway, if I were to look at a simple graph of the percentage of equity held by Indian households, we have already reached an all-time high at levels above 2007. We cannot take our eyes off this valuation of equity. As this changes, FII liquidity will be important for us to support the markets and more so because this could also be the year that the primary markets could get even busier with plenty of lockdowns to come.

We estimate that quite a bit of the lockdown could come out and there could be more stake sales as well as the normal primary IPOs. FII money will therefore be important and could be more important if this DII liquidity dries up due to improving short-term debt yields as well.

Lacrosse Releases Spring 2022 Schedule – The GW Hatchet https://beaconatbangsar.com/lacrosse-releases-spring-2022-schedule-the-gw-hatchet/ Tue, 18 Jan 2022 08:06:27 +0000 https://beaconatbangsar.com/lacrosse-releases-spring-2022-schedule-the-gw-hatchet/

The Colonials rode a three-game winning streak last season to end non-conference play, but ultimately finished their shortened 2020 campaign at .500.

Lacrosse announced its spring 2022 season schedule last Monday.

The season is scheduled to begin on Saturday, February 19, when the team takes to the field in Annapolis to take on the Navy. The team will look to improve in head coach Jennifer Ulehla’s second full season at the helm, following a 6-6 record last year and an 0-7 record in 2020 in which the team was unable to play its conference slate.

The Colonials are set to play their first three non-conference away games where they face Villanova and UMBC. After a four-day hiatus, GW will return to the Mount Vernon campus on March 2 where they will face American rival Crosstown to wrap up their home non-conference slate.

After another four-day break, the Colonials are set to face another Crosstown rival, this time Georgetown on March 12, with the venue yet to be determined. The final two non-conference games will be played at the Vern where the Colonials will face Kennesaw State and Longwood.

Last year, GW ended its non-conference condensed schedule with a 3-2 overall record, winning three straight against Old Dominion, American and Longwood.

Atlantic 10 conference play will begin in North Carolina as the Colonials take on Davidson. GW will return from a four-day break to face Richmond at home.

The Colonials will once again take the road to Philadelphia where they will face La Salle. Holding a two-day break where they will return to DC for the final home game the following week, they will face St. Bonaventure.

GW will embark on a three-game tour where they will visit Massachusetts, George Mason and Saint Joseph in a one-week period beginning April 8.

The Colonials will return home to complete their final two games where they will face Duquesne and VCU in hopes of establishing the final points needed to qualify for the championship. Last season, GW finished the conference roster with a 3-4 overall record, which caused them to miss the playoffs.

GW has neither had a winning record nor made the playoffs since the 2013 season, in which they went 9-8 before losing to No. 13 Massachusetts 13-5 in the semi-finals of the A-10 Championship.

This year, the A-10 Championship will be held in Amherst, Mass. from April 28 to May 1, where the Colonials will battle for a spot in the NCAA Tournament, seeking their first spot since 2007.

Is Berkshire Hathaway heading for $ 1,000 billion? https://beaconatbangsar.com/is-berkshire-hathaway-heading-for-1000-billion/ Wed, 05 Jan 2022 16:16:00 +0000 https://beaconatbangsar.com/is-berkshire-hathaway-heading-for-1000-billion/

Wall Street remained somewhat choppy on Wednesday morning as investors remained divided in their views on the prospects for various industries within the stock market. Starting at 10 a.m.ET, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^ DJI) rose 18 points to 36,817 which would be a new record if he keeps those gains. However, the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^ GSPC) had lost 3 points to 4,791, and the Nasdaq composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^ IXIC) had lost 67 points to 15,555.

Evidence of a market rotation continues to mount, and one of the clearest signs of the possible rise in value investing has come from Omaha, Nebraska. Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) (NYSE: BRK.B) shares rose another 2% on Wednesday morning, taking its gains in the first two and a half trading days of the year to nearly 5% and representing a record price level for Warren Buffett’s company. Given the gains from other stocks, some investors are wondering if Berkshire could finally find its way into the $ 1,000 billion market cap club sometime in 2022.

A few difficult years

Some Berkshire Hathaway investors have been disappointed with the stock’s performance in recent years. The continued investor preference for higher growth companies contributed to the underperformance of the Berkshire stock, with a total return of 91% in the last five years behind the 130% of the S&P 500.

Berkshire has also had its share of mistakes. Buffett’s decision to sell airline stocks near their March and April 2020 lows was the subject of much criticism, as it appeared to resemble a panic-triggered sell off and was quickly followed by a rebound. massive in the airline industry. Meanwhile, the stock didn’t appear to be getting much credit for Berkshire’s massive holding in shares of Apple, which exploded during the period.

Growth investors are also wondering why Berkshire is keeping so much cash on hand. Even with growing buybacks of its own shares by the company, Berkshire had nearly $ 150 billion in cash on its balance sheet at the time of its last quarterly report. This marginal money, which brought in almost nothing, was undoubtedly a major obstacle to the potential return on investments.

See the value

More recently, however, investors have seemed to recognize the intrinsic value of Berkshire companies. 100% -owned companies in areas like energy and transportation are starting to show signs of strength, and although Buffett has significantly reduced his exposure to the banking sector, Berkshire’s holdings are benefiting from the prospect of rising rates. long-term interest that could support the net interest. Income.

Perhaps more importantly, many shareholders see Berkshire as a counter-trend game that offers portfolio diversification when combined with higher growth stocks. Despite a few recent buyouts of positions in companies such as data warehousing specialists Snowflake, Buffett’s conservative style will likely remain in place at Berkshire even after he is no longer able to run the business.

Are $ 1 trillion within reach?

Berkshire’s market cap has just passed the $ 700 billion mark, so it would take a gain of over 40% from here to hit $ 1,000 billion. This is a tall order for Berkshire in 2022, even after years of underperformance. However, some of the trends that created strong headwinds for the insurance conglomerate appear to be shifting, and this suggests that even if that doesn’t happen this year, Berkshire could muster the earnings needed to join the trillion club. dollars before also much longer.

This article represents the opinion of the author, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a premium Motley Fool consulting service. We are motley! Challenging an investment thesis – even one of our own – helps us all to think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.

Despite the poor health of the economy and growing concerns over new variants of Covid-19, penny-listed stocks preferred by retailers have emerged as the main beneficiaries of the current calendar year. As many as 30 penny-listed stocks delivered more than 1,000% in 2021, while 90 of them have jumped more than 500% in the current year, data compiled from Ace suggests. Equity.

There is no theoretical definition of penny stocks. However, stocks at single digit prices or below Rs 10 are bracketed at this club. ETmarkets took into account companies with a market capitalization of less than Rs 1,000 crore at the end of 2020.

Textile player Digjam tops the list with an increase of more than 5,935% in 2021. The stock recovered to Rs 247.45 on December 31, 2021, after settling at Rs 4.1 the corresponding day of the previous year. An investment of Rs 1 lakh in Digjam on the last day of the previous calendar year would have become Rs 59.35 lakh today.

Some typical characteristics of these stocks tend to be low promoter holdings, huge debt, accumulated losses, and poor dividend performance.

Market experts say penny stocks rose further in the bull market, which attracted investors. However, the gullible, entering late, do not have the opportunity to exit. Market experts advise conservative investors to avoid penny stocks. Sometimes these stocks are driven by market operators. When they fall, they are subject to lower circuits, making it impossible for small investors to exit.

G Chokkalingam, Founder and CEO of Equinomics Research & Advisory, says investors who have made money with penny stocks should make profits and enjoy life, as most companies don’t solid fundamentals to justify valuations. “Only smart investors, who understand the limits and principles of penny stocks, are able to make money. Gullible investors just try to chase a rally, lose money almost every other way.” , he added.

However, not all penny stocks rewarded investors in 2021. About three dozen of them eroded investor wealth, 10 of which slipped more than 20%.

Sagar Productions destroyed around 63% of the investor’s wealth, followed by Sun Retail, which lost more than 45%. Trio Mercantile, Innovative Ideals and Services, and Chandrima Mercantiles fell by as much as 40 percent each.

Penny stocksETMarkets.com

In general, a rise in stock prices tends to be supported by fundamentals such as good management, better financial performance and business expansion. This is not the case with penny stocks. Investors should be careful not to get trapped in buying low value stocks, as this can degrade the quality of investments.

VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services, said: “In a fierce bull market like this, cats and dogs will rise as well. But they will be slaughtered in a bear assault.

Experience shows that wealth is created in the long run by high quality actions. Investors chasing penny stocks will fail at the end of the bull run, he adds.
