Tata Motors | The share price gained 15 percent after private equity firm TPG is reportedly in talks with the Tata Group to invest at least $1 billion in the electric vehicles (EV) venture of Tata Motors. TPG's investment may even be raised to $1.5 billion and may value the Tata Motors' EV division at $8-9 billion, according to media reports. Moneycontrol could not independently verify the report.
Titan Company | The scrip was up 9 percent after the firm reported a strong recovery across its divisions of jewellery, eyewear, watches, and wearables in the second quarter of the financial year 2022. The company witnessed a 78 percent year-on-year (YoY) growth in the jewellery segment in Q2, while watches and wearables grew 73 percent; eyewear clocked 74 percent growth and its online jewellery platform grew 95 percent YoY. Shrikant Chouhan of Kotak Securities feels that on a short-term time frame, the stock has formed strong price volume breakout pattern. The texture of the pattern suggests breakout action will continue in the near term if it succeeds to trade above Rs 2,300 level. For the breakout, Rs 2,300 would be the sacrosanct level and with trading above the same, we can expect, uptrend continuation wave up to Rs 2,425-2,575. On the flip side, below Rs 2,300 uptrend would be vulnerable.
Tata Power | The stock price added 8 percent last week. The power firm has formed partnership with TVS Motor Company for the implementation of electric vehicle charging infrastructure (EVCI). As part of the MoU, the two companies agreed to drive the comprehensive implementation of EVCI across India and deploy solar power technologies at TVS Motor locations, as per the company's press release.
Tata Elxsi | The share gained over 7 percent in the week gone by. Consistent revenue growth, large and strategic deals, robust demand from overseas, strategic diversification and de-risking initiatives, and the improving outlook for the IT sector are some of the key factors that boosted investor confidence in the Tata Elxsi stock. According to Pushkaraj Kanitkar, VP equities at GEPL Capital, strong financial performance aided by a strong deal pipeline across newer high-growth industries and newer capabilities are reflected in superior margins.
IndusInd Bank | The stock rose over 6 percent after the private sector lender posted a 10 percent growth in advances at Rs 2,21,821 crore for the second quarter ended September 30. Net advances stood at Rs 2,01,247 crore at the end of the second quarter of the last financial year, IndusInd Bank said in a regulatory filing. The bank's deposits also rose by 21 percent (year-on-year) to Rs 2,75,486 crore in the quarter under review, from Rs 2,28,279 crore in the same period a year ago, it said. Mazhar Mohammad of Chartviewindia.in feels that on weekly charts, a long-term trend line which is in progress from the highs of Rs 2,038 registered in the year 2018 is likely to offer resistance around Rs 1,211. Therefore, for a fresh breakout and sustainable upswing, it needs to clear the hurdle in the Rs 1,190–1,211 levels. On such a close, a higher target of Rs 1,297 can be expected. But for the time being, traders who hold this counter are advised to exit if it fails to close above Rs 1,190 by the end of this week and better buying opportunity shall arise only on a close above Rs 1,211.
