TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
As per my charts, sugar stocks are breaking out and the trend is looking bullish. We have selected stocks with a minimum market cap of Rs 15 bn as per the closing of 30 April 2021. The stocks which we have included in our equal-weighted index is EID Parry, Balrampur Chini, Triveni Engineering, Renuka Sugar, Bannari Amman Sugar, Dalmia Sugar, and Dhampur Sugar. The index broke out of from a bullish inverted head and shoulder in March 2016 and it then doubled giving around 110% returns in the next 86 weeks. They say history repeats itself in the markets. A similar structure formed in April 2021. The index broke-out, retested, and is now resuming its bullish momentum. I believe sugar stocks are looking positive for another 8-12 months. However, individual stock selection must be done with great care because sugar stocks are quite volatile.
