Sameet Chavan (Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking) said," The November series has been the historical one for our markets as we saw two key indices, Nifty and Bank Nifty clocking sizable gains over 11% and 22%, respectively. In the midst of all this, Nifty surpassed it's previous record high and reached the milestone of 13000. Clearly, FIIs have been the charioteer of this mesmerizing rally as they relentlessly pumped money into our market to mark the biggest single month inflows over Rupees 50000 crores. Now, coming back to the levels, 13040 - 13146 remains to be an immediate resistance zone; whereas on the lower side, 12900 - 12868 - 12790 can be seen as a cluster of supports. With yesterday's move, 12790 - 12730 has become a sacrosanct support, till the time it is not breached convincingly, one should trade with a positive bias. "

11.26 AM: Jubilant Foodworks outlook

Geojit Financial Services said in its note," JFL posted standalone revenue of Rs. 806cr in Q2FY21 (-18.5% YoY; +111.8% QoQ), due to muted growth in Dine-in channel. System sales recovery for Q2FY21 stands at 82.3% YoY, whereas Like-for-Like sales recovery stands at 86.9%. EBITDA Margin expanded by 287bps YoY to 26.7%. Margin improvements can be attributed to flat input costs, lower discounts and introduction of delivery charges. Outlook improves with the ongoing growth momentum across delivery and take-away channels and expected recovery from Dine-in. Therefore, we upgrade our rating on the stock to ACCUMULATE with a revised price target of Rs. 2,830 based on 63x Dec 2022E adj. EPS."

We are expecting Burger King IPO issue to open next week. Burger King is the fastest growing international QSR chain in India during the first five years of their operations based on the number of restaurants. (Source: Technopak). Their master franchisee arrangement provides them with the ability to use Burger King's globally recognised brand name to grow their business in India. The Burger King brand is the second largest fast food burger brand globally as measured by the total number of restaurants, with a global network of over 18,000 restaurants in more than 100 countries and U.S. territories as at June 30, 2019.

11. 13 AM: Burger King IPO

Keshav Lahoti-Associate Equity Analyst, Angel Broking said," Burger King is growing rapidly in India, revenue of the company increased from Rs. 230 cr in FY17 to Rs. 633 cr in FY19. On the other hand, the company has reduced its losses from Rs. 72 cr to Rs. 38 cr from FY17 to FY19. Burger King peer Jubilant Foodworks is currently trading at 8.7 EV/sales on FY20 basis. We believe Burger King won't get such a premium valuation as Jubilant Foodworks as it does not have a profitability track record like Jubilant, its outlets are young and we believe majority of the Indian people prefers Jubilant - Pizza over burger sold by Burger King."

11.02AM:Indian Oil and Gas sector

On Indian Oil and Gas sector update - Dayanand Mittal from JM Financial Institutional Securities Limited said," Government has notified regulations for: a) open access in CGD sector; and b) unified tariff for gas pipeline network. The notified open access regulation is a big positive for IGL and MGL as it has disallowed OMCs' existing outlets (which sell CNG) to compete with CGD companies to incentivize creation of additional infrastructure. Hence, this has significantly reduced competitive threat from OMCs for IGL and MGL's key CNG business. We re-iterate our preference for CGD companies due to its structural volume growth and strong pricing power - IGL continues to be our top pick due to its superior volume growth visibility (followed by Gujarat Gas). Further, unified tariff for gas pipeline was also notified. This is likely to be revenue neutral for gas companies; we maintain BUY on GAIL and GSPL."

10. 56 AM: Automobile sector outlook

On the auto sector, JM Financial Institutional Securities Limited said," Metals form a significant raw material for auto OEMs and the pure exposure to the commodity basket is c.10-20% of net sales. A long-term historic trend suggests that a 1% change in domestic steel prices impacts OEM margins by 10-20bps. As OEMs have 3-6 months contracts, commodity price changes reflect in RM with a lag of 1-2 quarters. After a dip in steel/aluminium prices during COVID-19 related lockdown, prices have surged significantly crossing the pre-Covid levels. Based on the recent trend, we believe, 3Q gross margins to be adversely impacted by c.100bps QoQ. With CMP of metals c.30% higher vs. 1QFY21 avg., we expect 4Q gross margin to be further impacted by c.200bps QoQ. OEMs (especially 2W) have recently taken few rounds of price increases post implementation of BS6. Our latest 2W channel checks suggests that BS6 price hikes have started to weigh on the demand (affordability) and volume tailwinds (pent-up demand, restocking and personal mobility) are fading. In such scenario, we believe it will be difficult for 2W OEMs to take further price increases to pass on high commodity prices. PV demand remains buoyant along with low channel inventory providing room for lower discounts and price increase. Cost optimisation during the Covid-19 period may be able to mitigate RM inflation to a certain extent. Maruti remains our preferred pick in PVs while the risk-return trade-off is unfavourable for 2W OEMs."

10. 49 AM: Nifty outlook

On markets opening --Manish Hathiramani, proprietary index trader and technical analyst, Deen Dayal Investments said,"The resistance level for the Nifty is at 13050 and if we can cross that, we could head to 13200 by next week. A strong support lies at 12800 and thereafter at 12500. It is only post the breaking of 12500 that we would consider a short term correction. Until then, the trend remains bullish with a strong upside momentum."

10. 38 AM: Market outlook

Geojit Financial said in its note,"Despite a brief penetration of 12850 identified yesterday as a downside marker, traders gave it the respect it deserved, lifting prices higher in the second half. 13000 slowed down proceedings as expected, and a certain deal of resistance is expected today as well from this level, though we will have a watchful eye on the potential for a vertical rise to 13400 should 13000 is overcome convincingly. The chances of the same today looks limited though."

10. 18 AM: Nifty technical update

Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said,"Markets are likely to consolidate around the current levels in the short run. However, in the medium term, markets are likely to turn increasingly volatile. Valuations are high and therefore upside is limited. Stick to bluechips, particularly in performing sectors like IT and financials. If Sensex moves beyond 45000, increase cash levels. Invest in mid-small-caps through mutual funds. Macro data indicate better than expected recovery in the economy"

10.06 AM: JSW Steel outlook

9.14 AM: Market outlook

As per Reliance Research, "NSE-NIFTY extended loss post a bearish formation, but later due to lack of follow-up selling interest the index turned upwards from 12,800 mark and bounced to 13,000 level. Yesterday, strength in the Asian markets supported a late trade recovery for the Indian bourses. On the daily chart, the index has formed a bullish hammer pattern. Despite late trade recovery, our near-term bearish view will remain intact on the index. On the lower side, the index will initially find support at 12,700 and then at 12,600 levels. However in case of rebound, its life-time-high (13,146 mark) will cap the up-move.

As for the day, support is placed at around 12,846 and then at 12,704 levels, while resistance is observed at 13,073 and then at 13,159 levels."
