"Coffee stocks are buzzing today after Robusta coffee futures on ICE hit a four-year peak on Monday on tightening supplies, while London cocoa futures hit new six-month highs. The outlook for coffee prices is still bullish both globally and domestically on the back of supply issues," said Santosh Meena, Head of Research at Swastika Investmart.
Globally, the Robusta Coffee futures and London cocoa futures are used as the benchmark for the pricing of physical Robusta Coffee and physical cocoa, respectively.
Santosh Meena feels both technically and fundamentally, Tata Coffee and CCL Products look strong. "Tata coffee has an immediate resistance zone of Rs 215-220; above this, we can expect a move towards Rs 245 level. On the downside, Rs 200-195 is a critical demand zone, and only below this, we can expect any weakness," he said.
According to him, CCL Products stock may continue to outperform because of its strong financials where Rs 415-430 is an immediate resistance zone. Above this, it is likely to head towards the Rs 500 level. Rs 400-385 is an immediate and strong demand zone.
Ashis Biswas, Head of Technical Research at CapitalVia Global Research expects Tata Coffee stock to trade up to the level of Rs 245 in near future, and CCL to trade till the level of Rs 480.
"Tata Coffee stock has reversed from an important support level of Rs 180 and it has formed an inverse head and shoulder in the hourly chart. CCL has reversed from the support of 100EMA and has picked up momentum after the reversal," he reasoned.
