Market Live: Sensex rises 200 pts, Nifty eyes 9,800; Midcap outperforms

Suzlon Energy, CESC, BEML, Adani Ports, DLF, Sun TV, CG Power, JP Associates, GVK Power, GMR Infra, Techno Electric, Voltamp Transformers and Mercator surged up to 7 percent.

10:20 am DLF in focus: Realty major DLF's promoters are likely to enter into an agreement this month with Singapore's sovereign wealth fund GIC to sell their 40 percent stake in the rental arm in a deal estimated at around Rs 13,000 crore. STOCK TIPS

In October 2015, DLF had announced that its promoters would sell their entire stake in the DLF Cyber City Developers Ltd (DCCDL), which holds the bulk of the commercial assets of the group.

The promoters had in March this year entered into an exclusivity pact with GIC to negotiate on this transaction. According to market sources, both the parties are likely to sign definitive agreement by end of this month. Sources had earlier said the deal is likely to be valued at around Rs 12,000-13,000 crore.

The promoters would infuse a large portion of proceeds from this proposed deal into DLF, which in turn would use this amount to cut its net debt that has reached nearly Rs 26,000 crore.

10:05 am Buzzing: PSU banking major State Bank of India extended losses in morning, falling over 1 percent as brokerage houses slashed target price after disappointing earnings and bad asset quality performance in April-June quarter.

"SBI surprised negatively on asset quality in Q1 while loan growth was much weaker than expected. We expect return on equity to remain muted for the rest of FY18 in line with other corporate banks, turning the corner only in FY19," Jefferies said while retaining buy rating on the stock but lower target price to Rs 325 (from Rs 355 earlier).

The research house has cut its earnings estimates sharply on lower growth expectations, resulting in weaker growth in NII and fee income and consequently higher expense ratio.

For the merged bank, it has increased credit cost assumption in FY18. The weakness is somewhat moderated owing to the savings rate cut announced by the bank resulting in marginal net interest margin expansion, Jefferies said while estimating FY17-20 adjusted book value CAGR of 19 percent (consolidated basis) and 18 percent (standalone).

However, in view of elevated provisioning pressure, Motilal Oswal also cut its FY18 earnings estimates by 37 percent and recommended buy rating with reduced target price at Rs 341 (from Rs 375 earlier).

According to the research house, the larger part of asset quality clean-up is behind.

CLSA also reduced its target price to Rs 350 from Rs 360 following cut in earnings estimates but it has maintained buy rating, saying asset quality disappointed but better than PSU banks and the key disappointment was high non-performing loans reflecting stress in corporate, retail & agri loans.

The share price has declined from a peak of Rs 480 to Rs 373 (22 percent) in last two months.

"Target price is based on 20x Dec-19E EPS (Rs 356) for business as usual (versus 24x earlier) less impact of Rs 60 per share from Vodafone-Idea merger (versus Rs 39 per share earlier) and likely acquisition of Vodafone-Idea stake in Indus at enterprise value of Rs 50 lakh per tower (+Rs 15 per share)," the research house said.
