  6. 6. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector”• This study may not provide any guidelines to Speculators. It is useful to Long Term Investors.• Technical analysts evaluate securities by analyzing statistics generated by market activity, past prices and volume.• One of the most basic and easy to use technical analysis indicators is the moving average, which shows the average value of a securitys price over a period of time. The most commonly used moving averages are 10 days, 20 days, 30 days, 50 days, 100 days and 200-days moving average..• One of the most important areas for any investor to look when researching a company is the financial statement. Financial reports are required by law and are published both quarterly and annually.• Indian Economy is consistently achieving a tremendous growth in these Sectors.• If we consider RSI then almost all the scrips of these companies are lying between 30 and 70. It means an investor should hold the scrips until it reaches 70 to sell and 30 to buy.• The stock prices always take a correction after a major climb.• Moving average is one of the best methods of predicting future movement of Stock Price. If we use 200 Day Moving Average for Analysis then volatility of stock will be less. It gives clear picture of movement of Stock.CONCLUSION OF THE STUDY: As we all know India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world.

  7. 7. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector”largest commercial vehicle manufacturer in the world. The Indian automobile market isamong the largest in Asia. The Ministry of Heavy Industries has released the Automotive Plan 2006-2016,with the motive of making India the most popular manufacturing hub for automobiles andits components in Asia. The plan focuses on the removal of all the bottlenecks that areinhibiting its growth in the domestic as well as international arena. With comparatively higher rate of economic growth rate index against that ofgreat global powers, India has become a hub of domestic and exports business. Theautomobile sector has been contributing its share to the shining economic performance ofIndia in the recent years. The Indian automobile industry is going through a phase of rapid change and highgrowth. With new projects coming up on a regular basis, the industry is undergoingtechnological change. The major players are expanding their plants and focusing on masscustomization, mass production, etc Apart from domestic production, the industry is consistently focusing on theautomobile exports. The auto component segment is contributing a lot in the exportarena. The liberalized policies of the government are now making the companies go formore and more exports. Because of these reasons, the shares of automobile industry are performing welland therefore the share market is attracting people to invest their hard earned money andfind fortune. But lack of knowledge about shares and stock market is making themcautious of investing in this market. They need to be educated as well as guided tominimize the risk and to assess the return on their investment.SUGGESTIONS: 1. Before going to invest, an investor should have clear and adequate knowledge of capital market. 2. It is better to go for Long term Investment rather than the Short term Investment. Because it is less risky and also provides sufficient return. 3. The investors should know the value of money. 4. Practically, stock market activities are very risky. So, investors should be careful while investing. 5. In case of half knowledge about stock market is very dangerous. So, whenever a person wants to invest in stock market he should take necessary tips from the experts or Technical Analysts. 6. Investors should also look into global pressure and market movement in order to look for avenues of investing in different stocks and to take position; some of the sources for understanding global pressure are CNBC TV18, News Paper, Economy watch etc.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 7

  19. 19. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” CHAPTER 3 OVERVIEW OF EQUITY MARKET IN INDIA BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange)SENSEX - THE BAROMETER OF INDIAN CAPITAL MARKETSIntroduction: For the premier Stock Exchange that pioneered the stock broking activity in India,128 years of experience seems to be a proud milestone. A lot has changed since 1875when 318 persons became members of what today is called "The Stock Exchange,Mumbai" by paying a princely amount of Re1. Since then, the countrys capital markets have passed through both good and badperiods. The journey in the 20th century has not been an easy one. Till the decade ofeighties, there was no scale to measure the ups and downs in the Indian stock market. TheStock Exchange, Mumbai (BSE) in 1986 came out with a stock index that subsequentlybecame the barometer of the Indian stock market. SENSEX is not only scientifically designed but also based on globally acceptedconstruction and review methodology. First compiled in 1986, SENSEX is a basket of 30constituent stocks representing a sample of large, liquid and representative companies.The base year of SENSEX is 1978-79 and the base value is 100. The index is widelyBabasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 19
  20. 20. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector”reported in both domestic and international markets through print as well as electronicmedia. The Index was initially calculated based on the "Full Market Capitalization"methodology but was shifted to the free-float methodology with effect from September 1,2003. The "Free-float Market Capitalization" methodology of index construction isregarded as an industry best practice globally. All major index providers like MSCI,FTSE, STOXX, S&P and Dow Jones use the Free-float methodology. Due to its wide acceptance amongst the Indian investors, SENSEX is regarded tobe the pulse of the Indian stock market. As the oldest index in the country, it provides thetime series data over a fairly long period of time (From 1979 onwards). Small wonder,the SENSEX has over the years become one of the most prominent brands in the country. The growth of equity markets in India has been phenomenal in the decade goneby. Right from early nineties the stock market witnessed heightened activity in terms ofvarious bull and bear runs. The SENSEX captured all these events in the most judicialmanner.

  26. 26. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” FUNDAMENTAL AND TECHNICAL ANALYSISFUNDAMENTAL ANALYSIS: Fundamental analysis is the method of evaluating securities by attempting tomeasure the intrinsic value of a particular stock. It is the study of everything from theoverall economy and industry conditions, to the financial condition and management ofspecific companies (i.e., using real data to evaluate a stock’s value). The method utilizesitems such as revenues, earnings, return on equity and profit margins to determine acompany’s underlying value and potential for future growth. One of the major assumptions under fundamental analysis is that, even thoughthings get mis priced in the market from time to time, the price of an asset will eventuallygravitate toward its true value. This seems to be a reasonable bet considering the longupward march of quality stocks in general despite regular setbacks and periods ofirrational exuberance. The key strategy for the fundamentalist is to buy when prices are ator below this intrinsic value and sell when they got overpriced.Fundamental analysis for identifying industries with growth potential : After the objects of investment portfolio in terms of risk and return have beenspecified, one of the first decisions that an investment manager faces is to identify theindustries, which have a high growth potential. Two approaches are suggested in thisregard: a) Statistical analysis of past performance: A statistical analysis of the immediate past performance of the share price indices of the various industries and changes therein related to the general price index of shares of all industries should be made. The Reserve Bank of India index numbers of security prices published every month in its bulletin may be taken to represent the behavior of share prices of the various industries in the last few years. The relative changes in the price index of each industry as compared with the changes in the average price index of the shares of all industries would show those industries which are having a higher growth potential in the past few years. It may be noted that an industry may not remain a growth industry for all the time. The analysis of share price indices over a number of years will enable the investment manager to identify the industries, which are rated high by the investors at the time of analysis. By this, one can perceive industries having a higher growth in their share prices indices and examine whether the growth potential is still there or not. In other words, the investment manager shall now have to make an assessment of the various characteristics of the industries to finalize a list of industries in which he will try to spread the investments. b) Assessing the intrinsic value of an industry/company: After an investment manager has identified statistically the industries in the share of which the investors show interest, he would assess the various factors, which influence the value of a particular share. These factors generally relate to the strengths andBabasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 26
  27. 27. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” weaknesses of the company under consideration, characteristics of the industry within which the company falls and the national and international economic scene. It is the job of the investment manager to examine and weigh the various factors and judge the quality of the share or the security under consideration. This approach is known as the intrinsic value approach.TECHNICAL ANALYSIS: Technical analysis is the examination of past price movements to forecast futureprice movements. Technical analysts are sometimes referred to as chartists because theyrely almost exclusively on charts for their analysis.Moving Average: A Moving Average is an indicator that shows the average value of a securitysprice over a period of time. When calculating a moving average, a mathematical analysisof the securitys average value over a predetermined time period is made. As thesecurities price changes, its average price moves up or down. There are several popular ways to calculate a moving average. Meta Stock forJava calculates a "simple" moving average--meaning that equal weight is given to eachprice over the calculation period.Interpretation: The most popular method of interpreting a moving average is to compare therelationship between a moving average of the securitys price with the securitys priceitself. A buy signal is generated when the securitys price rises above its moving averageand a sell signal is generated when the securitys price falls below its moving average. This type of moving average trading system is not intended to get you in at theexact bottom nor out at the exact top. Rather, it is designed to keep you in line with thesecuritys price trend by buying shortly after the securitys price bottoms and sellingshortly after it tops. The critical element in a moving average is the number of time periods used incalculating the average. When using hindsight, you can always find a moving averagethat would have been profitable. The key is to find a moving average that will beconsistently profitable. The most popular moving average is the 39-week (or 200-day)moving average. This moving average has an excellent track record in timing the major(long-term) market cycles.Advantages:Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 27
  28. 28. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The advantage of moving average system of this type (i.e., buying and sellingwhen prices break through their moving average) is that you will always be on the "right"side of the market: prices cannot rise very much without the price rising above its averageprice. The disadvantage is that you will always buy and sell some late. If the trend doesnot last for a significant period of time, typically twice the length of the moving average,you will lose your money.Support and Resistance: Support and resistance represent key junctures where the forces of supply anddemand meet. In the financial markets, prices are driven by excessive supply (down) anddemand (up). Supply is synonymous with bearish, bears and selling. Demand issynonymous with bullish, bulls and buying. These terms are used interchangeablythroughout this and other articles. As demand increases, prices advance and as supplyincreases, prices decline. When supply and demand are equal, prices move sideways asbulls and bears slug it out for control.What Is Support? Support is the price level at which demand is thought to be strong enough toprevent the price from declining further. The logic dictates that as the price declinestowards support and gets cheaper, buyers become more inclined to buy and sellersbecome less inclined to sell. By the time the price reaches the support level, it is believedthat demand will overcome supply and prevent the price from falling below support. Support does not always hold and a break below support signals that the bearshave won out over the bulls. A decline below support indicates a new willingness to selland/or a lack of incentive to buy. Support breaks and new lows signal that sellers havereduced their expectations and are willing sell at even lower prices. In addition, buyerscould not be coerced into buying until prices declined below support or below theprevious low. Once support is broken, another support level will have to be established ata lower level.Where Is Support Established? Support levels are usually below the current price, but it is not uncommon for asecurity to trade at or near support. Technical analysis is not an exact science and it issometimes difficult to set exact support levels. In addition, price movements can bevolatile and dip below support briefly. Sometimes it does not seem logical to consider asupport level broken if the price closes 1/8 below the established support level. For thisreason, some traders and investors establish support zones.What Is Resistance? Resistance is the price level at which selling is thought to be strong enough toprevent the price from rising further. The logic dictates that as the price advances towardsBabasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 28
  29. 29. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector”resistance, sellers become more inclined to sell and buyers become less inclined to buy.By the time the price reaches the resistance level, it is believed that supply will overcomedemand and prevent the price from rising above resistance. Resistance does not always hold and a break above resistance signals that thebulls have won out over the bears. A break above resistance shows a new willingness tobuy and/or a lack of incentive to sell. Resistance breaks and new highs indicate buyershave increased their expectations and are willing to buy at even higher prices. In addition,sellers could not be coerced into selling until prices rose above resistance or above theprevious high. Once resistance is broken, another resistance level will have to beestablished at a higher level.Where Is Resistance Established? Resistance levels are usually above the current price, but it is not uncommon for asecurity to trade at or near resistance. In addition, price movements can be volatile andrise above resistance briefly. Sometimes it does not seem logical to consider a resistancelevel broken if the price closes 1/8 above the established resistance level. For this reason,some traders and investors establish resistance zones. So, Here, Identification of key support and resistance levels is an essentialingredient to successful technical analysis. Even though it is sometimes difficult toestablish exact support and resistance levels, being aware of their existence and locationcan greatly enhance analysis and forecasting abilities. If a security is approaching animportant support level, it can serve as an alert to be extra vigilant in looking for signs ofincreased buying pressure and a potential reversal. If a security is approaching aresistance level, it can act as an alert to look for signs of increased selling pressure andpotential reversal. If a support or resistance level is broken, it signals that the relationshipbetween supply and demand has changed. A resistance breakout signals that demand(bulls) has gained the upper hand and a support break signals that supply (bears) has wonthe battle.Price Oscillator: The Price Oscillator displays the difference between two moving averages of asecuritys price. The difference between the moving averages can be expressed in eitherpoints or percentages.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 29
  30. 30. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The Price Oscillator is almost identical to the MACD, except that the PriceOscillator can use any two user-specified moving averages. (The MACD always uses 12and 26-day moving averages, and always expresses the difference in points.)Interpretation: Moving average analysis typically generates buy signals when a short-termmoving average (or the securitys price) rises above a longer-term moving average.Conversely, sell signals are generated when a shorter-term moving average (or thesecuritys price) falls below a longer-term moving average. The Price Oscillatorillustrates the cyclical and often profitable signals generated by these one or two movingaverage systems.Price Rate-Of-Change: The Price Rate-of-Change ("ROC") indicator displays the difference between thecurrent price and the price x-time periods ago. The difference can be displayed in eitherpoints or as a percentage. The Momentum indicator displays the same information, butexpresses it as a ratio.Interpretation: It is a well-recognized phenomenon that security prices surge ahead and retract ina cyclical wave-like motion. This cyclical action is the result of the changingexpectations as bulls and bears struggle to control prices. The ROC displays the wave-like motion in an oscillator format by measuring theamount that prices have changed over a given time period. As prices increase, the ROCrises; as prices fall, the ROC falls. The greater the change in prices, the greater thechange in the ROC. The time period used to calculate the ROC may range from 1-day (which resultsin a volatile chart showing the daily price change) to 200-days (or longer). The mostpopular time periods are the 12- and 25-day ROC for short to intermediate-term trading.These time periods were popularized by Gerald Appel and Fred Hitschler in their book,Stock Market Trading Systems. The 12-day ROC is an excellent short- to intermediate-term overbought/oversoldindicator. The higher the ROC, the more overbought the security; the lower the ROC, themore likely a rally. However, as with all overbought/oversold indicators, it is prudent towait for the market to begin to correct (i.e., turn up or down) before placing your trade.A market that appears overbought may remain overbought for some time. In fact,extremely overbought/oversold readings usually imply a continuation of the currenttrend.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 30
  31. 31. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The 12-day ROC tends to be very cyclical, oscillating back and forth in a fairlyregular cycle. Often, price changes can be anticipated by studying the previous cycles ofthe ROC and relating the previous cycles to the current marketRelative Strength Index (RSI): The Relative Strength Index ("RSI") is a popular oscillator. It was firstintroduced by Welles Wilder in an article in Commodities (now known as Futures)Magazine in June, 1978. The name "Relative Strength Index" is slightly misleading as the RelativeStrength Index does not compare the relative strength of two securities, but rather theinternal strength of a single security. A more appropriate name might be "InternalStrength Index."Interpretation: When Wilder introduced the Relative Strength Index, he recommended using a14-day Relative Strength Index. Since then, the 9-day and 25-day Relative StrengthIndexs have also gained popularity. The fewer days used to calculate the RelativeStrength Index, the more volatile the indicator. The Relative Strength Index is a price-following oscillator that ranges between 0and 100. A popular method of analyzing the Relative Strength Index is to look for adivergence in which the security is making a new high, but the Relative Strength Index isfailing to surpass its previous high. This divergence is an indication of an impendingreversal. When the Relative Strength Index then turns down and falls below its mostrecent trough, it is said to have completed a "failure swing." The failure swing isconsidered a confirmation of the impending reversal.In Mr. Wilders book, he discusses five uses of the Relative Strength Index: 1. Tops and Bottoms. The Relative Strength Index usually tops above 70 and bottoms below 30. It usually forms these tops and bottoms before the underlying price chart. 2. Chart Formations. The Relative Strength Index often forms chart patterns such as head and shoulders or triangles that may or may not be visible on the price chart. 3. Failure Swings (also known as support or resistance penetrations or breakouts). This is where the Relative Strength Index surpasses a previous high (peak) or falls below a recent low (trough). 4. Support and Resistance. The Relative Strength Index shows, sometimes more clearly than price themselves, levels of support and resistance.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 31
  32. 32. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” 5. Divergences. As discussed above, divergences occur when the price makes a new high (or low) that is not confirmed by a new high (or low) in the Relative Strength Index. Prices usually correct and move in the direction of the Relative Strength Index.Trendlines: In the preceding section, we saw how support and resistance levels can bepenetrated by a change in investor expectations (which results in shifts of thesupply/demand lines). This type of a change is often abrupt and "news based." In this section, well review "trends." A trend represents a consistent change inprices (i.e., a change in investor expectations). Trends differ from support/resistancelevels in that trends represent change, whereas support/resistance levels represent barriersto change. As shown in the following chart, a rising trend is defined by successively higherlow-prices. A rising trend can be thought of as a rising support level--the bulls are incontrol and are pushing prices higher. As shown in the next chart, a falling trend is defined by successively lower high-prices. A falling trend can be thought of as a falling resistance level--the bears are incontrol and are pushing prices lower.The Bar Chart:Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 32
  33. 33. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The Bar chart is one of the most popular types of charts used in technical analysis.As illustrated on the left, the top of the vertical line indicates the highest price at which asecurity traded during the day, and the bottom represents the lowest price. The closingprice is displayed on the right side of the bar and the opening price is shown on the leftside of the bar. A single bar like the one to the left represents one day of trading.The chart below is an example of a bar chart for AT&T (T): The advantage of using a bar chart over a straight-line graph is that it shows thehigh, low, open and close for each particular day.Candle stick Charting: Candlestick charts have been around for hundreds of years. They are oftenreferred to as "Japanese candles" because the Japanese would use them to analyze theprice of rice contracts. Similar to a bar chart, candlestick charts also display the open, close, daily highand daily low. The difference is the use of color to show if the stock went up or downover the day.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 33
  34. 34. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The chart below is an example of a candlestick chart for AT&T (T). Green barsindicate the stock price rose, red indicates a decline: Investors seem to have a "love/hate" relationship with candlestick charts. Peopleeither love them and use them frequently or they are completely turned off by them.There are several patterns to look for with candlestick charts - here are a few of thepopular ones and what they mean. This is a bullish pattern - the stock opened at (or near) its low and closed near its high.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 34
  35. 35. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The opposite of the pattern above, this is a bearish pattern. It indicates that the stock opened at (or near) its high and dropped substantially to close near its low. Known as "the hammer", this is a bullish pattern only if it occurs after the stock price has dropped for several days. A small body along with a large range identifies a hammer. This pattern indicates that a reversal in the downtrend is in the works. Known as a "star”. For the most part, stars typically indicate a reversal and or indecision. There is a possibility that after seeing a star there will be a reversal or change in the current trend.Point and Figure Chart: The point & figure (P&F) chart is somewhat rare. In fact, most charting servicesdo not even offer it. This chart plots day-to-day increases and declines in price: increasesare represented by a rising stack of "X"s, while decreases are represented by a decliningstack of "O"s. This type of chart was traditionally used for intraday charting (a stockchart for just one day), mainly because it can be long and tedious to create a P&F chartmanually over a longer period of time.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 35
  36. 36. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The idea behind P&F charts is that they help you to filter out less significant pricemovements and to focus on the most important trends. Below is an example of a P&Fchart for AT&T (T):POPULAR CHARTING PATTERNS: Technical analysts often use proven successful price patterns from great stocks astools to find new great stocks. Lets look at a few examples • Cup and Handle - This is a pattern on a bar chart that can be as short as seven weeks and as long as 65 weeks. The cup is in the shape of a "U". The handle has a slight downward drift. The right-hand side of the pattern has low trading volume. As the stock comes up to test the old highs, the stock will incur selling pressure by the people who bought at or near the old high. This selling pressure will make the stock price trade sideways with a tendency towards a downtrend for anywhere from four days to four weeks, then it will take off. This pattern looks like a pot with a handle. It is one of the easier patterns to detect; and investors have made a lot of money using it.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 36
  37. 37. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” • Head and Shoulders - This is a chart formation resembling an "M" in which a stocks price: - Rises to a peak and then declines, then - Rises above the former peak and again declines, and then - Rises again but not to the second peak and again declines. The first and third peaks are shoulders, and the second peak forms the head. This pattern is considered a very bearish indicator. • Double Bottom - This pattern resembles a "W" and occurs when a stock price drops to a similar price level twice within a few weeks or months. You should buy when the price passes the highest point in the handle. In a perfect double bottom, the second decline should normally go slightly lower than the first decline to create a shakeout of jittery investors. The middle point of the "W" should not go into new high ground. This is a very Bullish indicator. The belief is that, after two drops in the stock price, the jittery investors will be out and the long-term investors will still be holding on.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 37

Till a few yearsago, there was still a debate among informed observers about whether the economy hadmoved above the 5 to 6 per cent average growth seen since the 1980s. There is now nodoubt that the economy has moved to a higher growth plane, with growth in GDP atmarket prices exceeding 8 per cent in every year since 2003-04. The projected economicgrowth of 8.7 per cent for 2007-08 is fully in line with this trend. There was acceleration in domestic investment and saving rates to drive growthand provide the resources for meeting the 9 per cent (average) growth target of theEleventh Five-Year Plan. Macroeconomic fundamentals continue to inspire confidenceand the investment limate is full of optimism. Buoyant growth of government revenuesmade it possible to maintain fiscal consolidation as mandated under the FiscalResponsibility and Budget Management Act (FRBMA). The decisive change in growthtrend also means that the economy was, perhaps, not fully prepared for the different set ofBabasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 39
  40. 40. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector”challenges that accompany fast growth. Inflation flared up in the last half of 2006-07 andwas successfully contained during the current year, despite a global hardening ofcommodity prices and an upsurge in capital inflows. An appreciation of the rupee, aslowdown in the consumer goods segment of industry and infrastructure (both physicaland social) constraints, remained of concern. Raising growth to double digit will therefore require additional reforms. Percapita income and consumption 1.2 Growth is of interest not for its own sake but for theimprovement in public welfare that it brings about. Economic growth, and in particularthe growth in per capita income, is a broad quantitative indicator of the progress made inimproving public welfare. Per capita consumption is another quantitative indicator that isuseful for judging welfare improvement. It is therefore appropriate to start by looking atthe changes in real (i.e. at constant prices) per capita income and consumption 1.3. The pace of economic improvement has moved up considerably during the lastfive years (including 2007-08). The rate of growth of per capita income as measured byper capita GDP at market prices (constant 1999-2000 prices) grew by an annual averagerate of 3.1 per cent during the 12- year period, 1980-81 to 1991-92. It acceleratedmarginally to 3.7 per cent per annum during the next 11 years, 1992-93 to 2002-03. Sincethen there has been a sharp acceleration in the growth of per capita income, almostdoubling to an average of 7.2 per cent per annum (2003-04 to 2007-08). This means thataverage income would now double in a decade, well within one generation, instead ofafter a generation (two decades). The growth rate of per capita income in 2007-08 isprojected to be 7.2 per cent, the same as the average of the five years to the current year.1.4 Per capita private final consumption expenditure has increased in line with per capitaincome. The growth of per capita consumption accelerated from an average of 2.2 percent per year during the 12 years from 1980-81 to 1991-92 to 2.6 per cent per year duringthe next 11 years following the reforms of the 1990s. The growth rate has almost doubledto 5.1 per cent per year during the subsequent five years from 2003-04 to 2007-08, withthe current year’s growth expected to be 5.3 per cent, marginally higher than the five yearaverage. The average growth of consumption is slower than the average growth ofincome, primarily because of rising saving rates, though rising tax collection rates canalso widen the gap1. The Gross Domestic Product increased by 7.5 per cent, 9.4 per cent and 9.6 percent in first three years, of the UPA Government resulting in an unprecedented average growth rate of 8.8 per cent. The drivers of growth continue to be services and manufacturing which are estimated to grow at 10.7 per cent and 9.4 per cent respectively.2. Growth rate in agriculture for 2007-08 is estimated at 2.6 per cent.3. Food grain production in 2007-08, estimated at 219.32 million tonnes-an all time record. Rice production at 94.08 million tonnes, maize at 16.78 million tonnes, soya bean at 9.45 million tonnes, cotton at 23.38 million bales each, an all time record.4. Rashtriya Krishi Vikas Yojana launched with an outlay of Rs. 25,000 crore, National Food Security Mission with an outlay of Rs. 4,882 crore under National Policy for Farmers in the Eleventh Five Year Plan.Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 40
  41. 41. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector”CAPITAL AND COMMODITY MARKETS: The capital and commodity markets remained buoyant during 2007. Relativelystable macroeconomic conditions as reflected in moderate rate of inflation, growth-conducive interest rate situation, improved fiscal conditions and larger investorparticipation augured well for capital and commodity markets as measured in terms ofvolume and value of transactions.Capital Markets: The Indian capital market attained further depth and width in business transactedduring 2007. The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) Sensex, which had been witnessing anupswing since the latter part of 2003, scaled a high of 20,000 mark at the close ofcalendar year 2007. The National Stock Exchange (NSE) Index rose in tandem to closeabove the 6,100 mark at the end of 2007. Both the indices more than tripled between2003 and 2007, giving handsome yearly returns.

Although the indices showed some intermittent fluctuations, reflectingchange in the market sentiments, the indices maintained their northbound trend during theyear. This could be attributed to the larger inflows from Foreign Institutional Investors(FIIs) and wider participation of domestic investors, particularly the institutionalinvestors. During 2007, on a point-to-point basis, Sensex and Nifty Indices rose by 47.1and 54.8 per cent, respectively. The buoyant conditions in the Indian bourses were aidedby, among other things, India posting a relatively higher GDP growth amongst theemerging economies, continued uptrend in the profitability of Indian corporates,persistence of difference in domestic and international levels of interest rates, impressivereturns on equities and a strong Indian rupee on the back of larger capital inflows.Budget Estimates:1. Plan Expenditure estimated at Rs.243,386 crore.2. Non-Plan Expenditure estimated at Rs.507,499 crore.3.

The commodity market also showedsigns of expansion in terms of turnover and number of transactions during the year.Industry and infrastructure:Babasabpatilfreepptmba.com Page 42
  43. 43. “Fundamental & Technical Analysis of Automobile Sector” The industrial sector witnessed a slowdown in the first nine months of the currentfinancial year. The growth of 9 per cent during April-December 2007, when viewedagainst the back drop of the robust growth witnessed in the preceding four years, suggeststhat there is a certain degree of moderation in the momentum of the industrial sector. Theconsumer durable goods sector in particular has shown a distinct slowdown. This islinked to the hardening of interest rates and therefore to the conditions prevailing in thedomestic credit sector. In contrast, the capital goods industry has sustained strong growthperformance during 2007-08 (April-December). At the product group level, the moderation in growth has been selective.Industries like chemicals, food products, leather, jute textiles, wood products andmiscellaneous manufacturing products witnessed acceleration in growth, while basicmetals, machinery and equipments, rubber, plastic and petroleum products and beveragesand tobacco recorded lower but strong growth during April-December 2007. Otherindustries including textiles (except jute textiles), automotives, paper, non-metallicmineral products and metal products slowed down visibly during the period. Theslowdown in the case of less import-intensive sectors like textiles is coincident with thedecline in the growth of exports arising from the sharp appreciation in the rupee vis-a-visthe dollar. Within automobiles, while passenger cars, scooters and mopeds witnessedbuoyant growth, the production of motor cycles and three wheelers slackened. In anutshell, the industrial sector has produced mixed results in the current fiscal.
