Time frame: Three months
Derivatives & Quantitative Outlook
Broader markets have shown a sharp up move in the last two months due to one of the highest foreign flows. In November, FIIs have bought over Rs. 65000 crore, which is the highest ever inflow seen in a month. While the Nifty has shown significant recovery and moved to lifetime highs, midcap and small cap stocks are witnessing a catch up exercise. In the NBFC space, LIC Housing Finance, which has been a relative underperformer, is likely to witness fresh momentum in the days to come.
The open interest in the stock is one of the highest seen in it in almost five years. Due to MSCI rebalancing, the stock has witnessed noteworthy short additions. As the event is over, we expect gradual closure of these positions to be seen, which is likely to take the stock higher.
