Indian Brokerage Stocks

The Indian Stock Markets have come down by 40 % and the first sector to be hit are the brokerage houses. Deutsche Bank is underweight on Indian brokerage stocks Emkay, Motilal Oswal, Geojit etc, especially Indiainfoline and Edelweiss where they have recommended a SELL. Deutsche Bank compares the premium P/E at which these stocks are quoting to their peers across Asia where they are all trading at discount. This is very different from exchanges, which are also turnover-dependent but trade at market premiums since they are oligopolistic businesses.

A fragmented market, structural weaknesses such as relatively low product diversity and a distinct reversal of both the trend and the cyclical component, could lead to a significant de-rating from current above-market multiples. The sector is thinly covered by the Street; DB estimates and target price are materially below consensus.

The low market concentration and hence the propensity to intensely compete could exert significant pressure on returns. To this end, distribution prowess becomes the main value-driver and, with players such as Reliance Money taking the lead in network expansion, the crucial process of scaling up could be harder for rivals. DB expects turnover velocity to further compress in FY09E, the key retardant being the unavailability of large IPOs which have been an important driver of velocity in the past.

India Infoline is expected to report a negative growth in EPS for FY09 to Rs 5.23 [Rs 6.03 FY08] DB has a sell rating on the stock with a target price of Rs 110. [Broking/Investment banking/Wealth management/Ins distribution etc Rs 75 and Consumer Finance Rs 35.]

Edelweiss Capital is expected to report an EPS of Rs 33.83 [negative growth Rs 42.30 FY08] DB has set a target price of Rs 480 [ Broking/Investment banking/Wealth management etc Rs 265, Consumer Finance Rs 71, private Equity Rs 19 and Arbitrage Business Rs 127]

All the brokerages are awaiting the bull run to resume, and so too are the investors

Your Bill Amounts Are Going To Increase From June 1, 2016

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:



Phone Bills: Your phone bills are going to go up. So, pay a good 15 per cent now on service tax on phone bills.

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.




You could just try the same here at Moneycontrol Terminal
