12:38 pm: Never thought India would become an electronics manufacturing hub in my lifetime: Sunil Mittal

Semiconductors power everything in the world, and even in space. A critical component capable of bringing the world to a stop, the global chip shortage was a wake-up call for the largest economies to invest in the ecosystem. India announced the semiconductor scheme worth Rs 76,000 crore in December 2021, and soon after in August, the US approved a bill providing $52.7 billion in subsidies for US semiconductor manufacturers and research.

As these numbers give a glimpse of the importance of semiconductors, Sunil Bharti Mittal, Founder and Chairman of Bharti Enterprises, while speaking at Business Today's India@100 Economy Summit, recalled India's failed attempts and missed opportunities in the semiconductor space. Mittal said, "We had one semiconductor factory in Mohali SCL, which was the first factory that we had in this country. That unfortunately went down in flames. And no government after that, put it back to revival or to a program."

Our estimates do not factor projects in new energy and oil to chemicals, " said the brokerage.

9:03 am: Expert take

VK Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services

"Compared to the sell-off in US markets last Friday, the correction in the Indian market yesterday was relatively mild. This is a reflection of the resilience of the Indian market. However, it is important to appreciate the fact that valuations in India are high. Nifty is trading around 20 times forward earnings. MSCI India is trading at 100% premium to emerging market rivals. This calls for some caution. There is a possibility of further correction in the market in the near-term. Financials, capital goods, autos, telecom and FMCG are strong segments attracting investment."

8:35 am: Expert Take

Osho Krishan, senior analyst - Technical & Derivative Research, Angel One  

“Technically, the positive structure has been shaken a bit as the technical swing support of 17,350 got breached decisively. At the current juncture, the 21 DEMA and the recent unfilled gap around 17,380-17,520 are expected to act as an immediate hurdle for the index in the comparable period. While on the downside, 17,150-17,200 is expected to cushion any sort of fall, followed by the sacrosanct support of the unfilled gap around the psychological mark of 17,000.”
