European shares weighed down by tech stocks on rising U.S. rate hike bets

European shares fell on Tuesday, with tech stocks coming under pressure as a rise in two-year U.S. Treasury yields reflected ramped-up bets for a U.S. policy rate hike as soon as March.

The pan-European STOXX 600 index dropped 0.9%, with tech stocks declining 1.5% after U.S. Treasuries fell along the curve. Two-year yields, which track short-term rate expectations, crossed 1% for the first time since February 2020.

Oil stocks were the only ones in positive territory, jumping 0.4% as crude prices rose to their highest in more than seven years on worries about possible supply disruptions after Yemen’s Houthi group attacked the United Arab Emirates.

AGS Transact IPO view: Jyoti Roy – DVP- Equity Strategist, Angel One Ltd

AGS Transact Technologies Ltd. derives majority of its revenues by providing various services to the banking sector. The company derived 60% & 15% of its revenues from the cash management & digital services in the first 5 months of FY2022. There is no comparable company in the listed space which is exclusively engaged in the portfolio of business similar to the company. However CMS Infosystems Ltd. is engaged in cash management services which accounted for 60% of AGS Transact’s revenues. At the higher end of the price band AGS Transact would be trading at P/E multiple of 38.5xFY21 EPS which is at a premium to CMS Infosystems. Moreover AGS has high client concentration with top three customers accounting for 33.6% of revenues and has reported a loss for the first five months of FY2022. Given premium valuations, high client concentration and losses in 5MFY2022 we have a NEUTRAL recommendation on the IPO.
