The Slack group at Capital Mind Premium has been extremely active and if you haven’t been there, pop us a note by replying to this email. (If you’re a trial member this probably sound like Greek to you; it will be available when you sign up!)
Awesome discussions again!
A brief summary of some of the interesting things discussed there in the last few days:
• OPEC faces the prospect of surging US output whenever oil prices rise.
• Their bankruptcy will increase shale supply.
• Banks and investors lose on the debt, so they sell the shale assets cheap.
• Next buyer has lower debt overhang, leading to an even lower cost of development.
Why won’t this work in India?
• India does not have a bankruptcy law.
• The debt will never ever be forgiven and banks will always want to recover against promoter’s future income or even against the assets themselves like they do with arcs.
• The promoter never gets the bank off his/her back, which reduces their potential in the future.
• And if the ARC earns a profit selling the asset, they have to share with the bank.
• Banks prefer the arc route than attempting to actually sell and get the assets out of the system at lower prices because many of them own stakes in the very arcs they sell to.
• Insurance Companies offloading to MFs in Bull Market.
• FIIs too selling to MFs, but pretty flat.
How to read the MACD:
Head and Shoulders pattern is the most common pattern that is easy to spot and any pattern that is easy to spot, doesn’t work everytime; in fact, a shampoo failure causes a strong move in the other direction; e.g. Nifty from 8000 to 8600 after triggering a H&S pattern briefly.

The special yarn is sent to China for fabric then to Vietnam for stitching and then to Japan as shirts in top notch premium stores. This year yarn export to China gone down substantially and situation may remain like this for year or two.
Mayur has been trading in a range Rs.400-500 since Jul 2014. Q4-2015 results were flat with no growth in top or bottom line. I don’t expect growth in topline, but the profits may improve due to fall in input prices.
Long term: The story will be a churn into the next set of sectors. From Banks, Pharma, IT Services and Commodities, the movement will be seen in more of the Industrials (due to cheaper raw materials) and domestic consumption ( auto, some FMCG, retailers, apparel).
Medium term: In 1 year we’ll be depending on election results in some key states, and how the Rajya sabha shapes up. If key bills cannot be passed, our move will have to be entirely private sector led, and the private sector is currently very leveraged.
Short term: US interest rate hike will tell us where we will go. In general don’t see it as bearish, but our current valuations are too high on the index.
