12:23 PM: Pharma Sector result preview

Purvi Shah, DVP (Fundamental Research) Kotak Securities  

“We expect a subdued 1QFY23 for pharma companies, owing to continued US generic price erosion, high Covid-led domestic base for most companies, RM inflation and higher freight costs. To compensate for the above factors, INR depreciation will provide some relief. In the US, there have not been any meaningful new launches this quarter. Ex-Covid, we expect domestic growth for the sector to be 10-12% yoy. Health care services: We expect a sequentially improved performance of India hospitals business, led by higher domestic and international footfalls, post a slightly subdued 4QFY22 due to Omicron impact. However we note that IP and OP volumes are yet to completely revert to pre-Covid levels. We note that Q1FY23 performance is unlikely to be as strong as Q3FY22, which benefitted from a superior case mix, as well as higher footfalls, due to pent-up demand. For the diagnostic companies, we expect sequential recovery of non-Covid volumes, given Covid sales will slip qoq. We expect non-Covid realizations per patient to be largely flattish qoq. For DLPL and METROHL, we expect partial benefit of accrual of synergies from the Suburban and Hitech acquisitions, respectively."

9:14 am: Prashanth Tapse, Vice President (Research), Mehta Equities

"Caution will be the buzzword for today's trading as overnight US benchmark indices faltered while SGX Nifty and other Asian gauges too have retreated sharply in early trades. While there seems to be no respite from FII selling, DIIs too joined the bandwagon and offloaded shares in yesterday's trades, selling to the tune of Rs 170 crore and 297 crore, respectively. Although the selling was not that aggressive but it's enough to dent bullish sentiments. The technical indicators can accelerate towards south only if Nifty slips below 16,027 mark, while hurdle is seen at 16,500 zone."

8:34 am: Expert take

Nagaraj Shetti, Technical Research Analyst, HDFC Securities

Hence, the current range movement within 16,100-16,250 levels is likely to extended for the next session. A sustainable move above 16,300 could be viewed as strengthening of upside momentum."
