Further slide in rupee may crimp company margins, increase risks

While Indian corporates have seen a only marginal impact from the rupee’s slide so far, experts warned that the risks are building up, and any further weakening of the currency may start hurting companies.

The rupee continued to remain under pressure in the past week. On Friday, it closed 6 paise lower at 79.04 against the dollar, hitting a new low. Year to date, the rupee has depreciated 5.95% against the dollar, and many brokerages expect it to weaken further in the near term.

ICICI Securities view on Reliance Industries

Government of India has imposed additional excise duty of  13/litre on diesel exports. Also, excise duty on petrol and ATF exports was raised by of | 6/litre

· RIL has total refining capacity of 68 MMTPA and one of the refineries is export focused

· Product cracks of diesel, petrol and ATF continue to trade at elevated levels. While the company is expected to report a sharp surge in profit in Q1FY23E, excise duty on product exports is likely to limit gains in the refining segment, going ahead, as per our understanding

· The government will review the excise duty for recalibration every 15 days. The strategy of the company regarding export volume and global refining scenario will be the key monitorable in the near term

Key triggers for future price performance

· Increment value accretion from the ‘digital ecosystem’ that will be captured at the Jio Platforms (JPL) level

· Steady FCF generation in the retail segment would enable the company to maintain debt at lower levels and improve its ability to invest in future inorganic opportunities

· Steady cash flow in O2C segment is expected to continue amid favourable global scenario and will enable RIL to invest in new energy verticals

Market View: Sameet Chavan, chief analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One

On Friday, markets felt some tremors initially from the major global peers; but it has managed to withstand it successfully and in fact, due to a smart V-shaped recovery in the latter half, the Nifty managed to reclaim 15700 with some authority.

In our previous intra-week commentary, we had mentioned how 15700 is to be considered a sacrosanct level. On Friday, we did see this key point getting thrashed in the initial trades and due to a massive sell-off in a few heavyweights (mainly RELIANCE), we saw Nifty hastening towards 15500 at one point. But bulls had other plans this time as they not only defended this level but went on to regain strength in the latter half to confirm a weekly close above 15700. So, for this week, 15700 followed by 15500 is to be seen as an immediate as well as a strong support zone. On the flip side, the sturdy wall remains around 15900 – 16000 and it’s a daunting task going past this for the bulls. Also one of the observations in our previous weekly commentary was the Quarterly close of Nifty above ‘5-EMA’ i.e. 16000 – 16100 would be crucial for our markets. Although the quarterly close panned out slightly lower, it would be a pragmatic ploy to give some buffer in such kind of challenging environment.

We continue to remain hopeful and if there is no aberration on the global front, we will not be surprised to see the Nifty crossing 15900 – 16000 this week itself. For this, banking certainly needs to step forward and it has already given some hints in the last couple of sessions. Also, the broader market did extremely well towards the fag end of the week, which again is an encouraging sign for the market.

US factory activity slows to two-year low as clouds gather over economy

U.S. manufacturing activity slowed more than expected in June, with a measure of new orders contracting for the first time in two years, signs that the economy was cooling amid aggressive monetary policy tightening by the Federal Reserve.
