CDSL’s Rise, Market Size: A Stock Surprise!🎉Weekly Update November 25

CDSL Rise Market Size

Hello Readers!

We hope you had a great week! 

Central Depository Services Limited (CDSL), India’s only listed depository, has achieved a remarkable milestone by amassing 10 crore demat accounts, a significant jump from 2020. CDSL’s success is intricately linked to the thriving Indian stock market, which has seen a substantial bull run in recent years.

A key player in the stock market infrastructure, CDSL plays a crucial role in the dematerialization of shares, transitioning from physical certificates to digital entries. This shift, initiated in the 1990s, revolutionised stock market investing in India, making transactions more secure and efficient. CDSL, established in 1999 as a rival to the first depository NSDL, has gradually captured a dominant market share, now commanding 73% of demat accounts.

CDSL’s growth can be attributed to its strong alliances with new-age discount brokers like Zerodha, which cater to a burgeoning retail investor base. This partnership has been instrumental in the company’s substantial increase in new demat accounts.

The company generates revenue through a diverse range of services. These include recurring fees from companies for managing electronic shares and annual demat charges through broker partnerships, transaction fees from stock sales and IPOs, and value-added services like e-voting for corporate decisions.

Moreover, CDSL has diversified its operations, venturing into areas like KYC verification through its subsidiary CDSL Venture Ltd and providing digital storage solutions for insurance policies. This diversification, combined with a low-cost IT business model, has contributed to its robust financial performance, with a significant EBITDA margin.

Despite these achievements, it’s crucial to note the cyclical nature of CDSL’s revenue, which is heavily dependent on market trends. A bear market could significantly impact its revenue streams, given that a large portion of its income is market-linked. Additionally, being a highly regulated industry, any regulatory changes in pricing could affect profitability.

In summary, while CDSL is benefiting from the stock market boom, potential investors should be mindful of its business model’s inherent risks and market dependencies.

India’s benchmark stock indices ended lower for the second day on Friday. Pharma and healthcare sectors advanced while the IT sector was under pressure. The headline indices gained for the fourth week this Friday, the longest stretch of gains since July 21, 2023. Nifty ended down by 0.037% at 19,795 level. Sensex was down 0.072% at 65,970, and Nifty Bank flat was down 0.44% at 43,769.

–Mr. Ratnesh Goyal, Senior Research Analyst, Arihant Capital.


If we look at the daily chart of Nifty, we are observing a “Series of Narrow range body formation”, and on the weekly chart, we observe a “Doji” candlestick formation; if we analyse both chart patterns, it indicates we can still see some stock specific move with consolidation. If Nifty starts trading above the 19,850 level, then it can touch the 19,950-20100 level, while on the downside, support is 19,700, and if it starts to trade below, it can test the level 19,500 and 19,350 levels.

Bank Nifty

If we look at the daily chart of Bank-Nifty, we observe prices taking support at 200DMA & on the weekly chart, we observe “Doji” candlestick formation. If we analyse both chart patterns, it indicates if the bank-nifty holds the 200DMA level. We can see some bounce from the current level. Bank-nifty starts trading above 43,880, then can touch 44,300 and 44,500 levels. However, downside support comes at 43,600; below that, we can see 43,350 and 43,100 levels.

💡🍬 Knowledge Candy: How has the recent wave of IPOs in India impacted the stock market and investor sentiment?

This week, India’s stock market witnessed an extraordinary surge in Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), with five public issues collectively amassing bids over Rs 2.5 lakh crore, excluding anchor investors.

Leading the pack, Tata Technologies’ IPO garnered over Rs 1.56 lakh crore and was oversubscribed by 69.43 times its issue size. This indicates a substantial appetite among investors for high-quality stocks in the primary market.

IPOs like the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency, Gandhar Oil Refinery, Flair Writing Industries, and Fedbank Financial Services also received overwhelming responses, with subscriptions multiple times over their offer sizes. This frenzy reflects not just the improving sentiment in the secondary market, but also a robust confidence in new market entrants.

The strong response, especially in the case of Tata Technologies, suggests that investors, including high-net-worth individuals (HNIs), remain cautiously optimistic about Indian equities. Despite global uncertainties like the Israel-Palestine conflict, HNIs tend to buy on dips, indicating their readiness to invest more if market corrections occur.

This IPO fervour underscores a growing trend of bullishness in the Indian stock market, driven by a quest for quality investments in the primary sector.
