Indian automobile industry has grown leaps and bounds since 1898, a time when a car had touched the Indian streets for the first time. At present it holds a promising tenth position in the entire world with being # 1 in Two Wheelers and # 4 in commercial vehicles. Withstanding a growth rate of 18% per annum and an annual production of more than 2 million units, it may not be an exaggeration to say that this industry in the coming years will soon touch a figure of 10 million units per year. The automobile industry in India — the ninth largest in the world with an annual production of over 2.3 million units in 2008 — is expected to become one of the major global automotive industries in the coming years. In this project we have undergone a detailed analysis of India automobile industry by using Fundamental and Technical tools. In order to better understand the performance of the industry we have made comparative analysis of Two players Tata motors as (leading player) and Maruti Suzuki. The project report is divided into 5 chapters. The first two chapters include Executive Summery & objective of the research. The third chapter deals with analysis of automobile Industry which entails fundamental and technical analysis of Indian Automobile Industry. The fourth chapter deals with Conclusion & Recommendations and the last chapter includes Bibliography.

We see that the debt –equity ratio of TATA motors is very high compared to that of Maruti. It means that a lot of debt is used by TATA’s to finance its increased operations.

while in mid of July the stock went below the lower band.e. May. but in regards all other technical factors should be considered while buying. but then onwards the bands started to widen which creates high volatility and looking at the future scenario it may be analysed that the stock will see a fall as at the end of august the band was overbought. there is a possibility of trend reversal. Knowing whether or not prices are high or low on a relative basis can enhance the interpretation of other indicators. It’s better to buy stocks when it touches the lower band. i. CONCLUSION NEW DELHI INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT. The buy and sell signals are not given when prices reach the upper or lower bands.AN ALYSIS OF INDIAN AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY 38 ‘OVERBOUGHT’. The prices fell too fast and are susceptible to bargain hunting. The stock also shows overbought many times during the six months but it did not show any oversold trend. mid July and mid august the stock of TATA motors crossed the upper band which means that during these periods the prices rose very fast. Initially the bands show slight slope and lie approximately parallel to each other.PGDM(2008-10) GROUP-15. During the june month the bands contracted very much which shows low volatility. Such levels merely indicate that prices are high or low on a relative basis. It’s also seen that the volatility increased to new highs after July because the bands started to widen. FINANCE-II . A security can become overbought or oversold for an extended period of time. this means that the price of the stock is oscillating up and down between the bands through a channel. During the months of April. An oversold stock has gone down too fast. which means that stock has gone up too fast and when a stock is outside the lower band it is ‘OVERSOLD’. because when price is trading near the upper or lower Bollinger band line. therefore it becomes an important factor in determining the price trend as it tells that the prices have not fallen very fast in these six months. The overbought and oversold stocks are apt to reverse course. and it can assist with timing issues in trading.

From the Technical Analysis of both companies we come to know that the share price of Maruti will move in the band of Rs.7% and the above facts and figures in our study also support this truth.PGDM(2008-10) GROUP-15. We have also come to know that share price movement of TATA Motors is just according to the movement of SENSEX. By analyzing the current trend of Indian Economy and Automobile Industry we can say that being a developing economy there is lot of scope for growth and this industry still have to cross many levels so there is huge opportunities to invest in and this is proving as more and more foreign Companies setting up there ventures in India.

The growth rate of Indian Automobile is so fast that by 2016 Indian Industry will be world 7 largest manufacturer in all sections. whenever there is a negative sentiment in the market regarding TATA Motors there is a steep fall in the stock price of TATA Motors but we have seen quick recovery in its share prices to regain its primary trend E.

Through Technical analysis of TATA Motors and Maruti it can be recommended that for now Maruti share price shows that it’s a time to hold the position or buy more shares as there is scope in further rise in share prices until and unless any negative reaction or sentiments comes in the Economy. as it already went on high side in a very short period of time so holding the shares for long time could be a wrong step. as if we take an example of TATA motors it gives approx 90% return in a period of just 3 months while Maruti Suzuki shows always a buy and hold position because there is possibility of growth in future. So recommending to invest in Automobile Industry have no doubt is going to be a good and smart option because this industry is booming like never before not only in India but all around the world. FINANCE-II .PGDM(2008-10) GROUP-15. The numbers which came out in the end of financial year 2009 prove that even in the period of recession the overall sales went up is sufficient to support to this fact. Investing in Maruti Suzuki for long time could be a good option whereas in TATA motors there is a chance of getting correction. same situation is in two wheeler segment with market leader Hero-Honda a debt free company also have bright future ahead. so at this point of time those who invested earlier can book their profit or new investors can buy now and sell with in short period of time by earning profit in short period of time.
