Stocks to Buy for Upto 14% Upside - MyDhanush by Ashika

Nifty rose for the sixty consecutive week on the trot on and registered a new all-time high at 21006 in the week gone by. This was backed by pleasantly surprising GDP data, fall in crude oil prices to 4-month low at $77/bbl, ease in the US bond yields to 3-monthlow at 4.18 percent, higher FPI inflows and strong global cues.

On the global front softening economic data and recent comments from Fed officials, including Chair Jerome Powell, have heightened expectations that the US central bank has ended its interest-rate-hiking cycle and will begin to cut rates as soon as March.

RBI Monetary policy was on expected lines. The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) kept its stance the same as withdrawal from accommodation to ensure taming inflation under target.

However, at the same time, the RBI highlighted the risk of over-tightening in the backdrop of global slowdown. This is despite the increase in GDP forecast to 7 percent for FY24 compared to 6.5 percent earlier.

Going ahead key focus next week would be the December 12-13 meeting. The US Federal Reserve is set to announce its policy outcome. The Fed has signalled the end of the rate hiking cycle and will pause in the coming policy meet. A rate cut by the Fed is likely by mid-2024.

Chambal Fertilisers & Chemicals | CMP: Rs 341.95 | Target: Rs 385 | Upside: 12.6%

The company reported 55 percent YoY growth in net profit during the quarter. Company is diversifying its business towards TAN (Technical Ammonium Nitrate) and Chemicals business.

The company is setting up of TAN manufacturing plant of 2.4 lakh MTPA and weak Nitric Acid plant of 2.1 lakh MTPA. It will invest Rs 1645 crore in these two projects with expected RoCE of 15-17 percent per annum.

The company’s foray into TAN business will boost its growth going ahead. TAN demand is expected to grow at CAGR of ~8-10 percent over FY’22-30 period in multiple core sectors such as Coal, Metal Mining, Infrastructure, etc.
