    Stock Recommendations: Jindal Steel & Power: Strong earnings, poor cash conversion


    JSPL’s 4QFY24 EBITDA of Rs24.4 (excluding other income) came in 4%/2%

    above our/consensus estimates. EBITDA increased 3% in FY24 to Rs102bn, even 

    as volumes surprisingly remained flat. During 2HFY24, JSPL generated Rs50bn in EBITDA, but converted only 27% of it in operating cash. Rebar margins have improved sharply in past couple of months, however, we are now heading into seasonally weak period for longs. JSPL has multiple earnings levers (increased output, pellet, thermal coal mines, slurry pipeline, merchant power) which at full run-rate, could potentially add Rs80-90bn annualized EBITDA to current EBITDA, implying 20% cash RoCE on stated Rs310bn capex. We expect Rs170bn

    EBITDA for JSPL by FY27. However, execution remains a key monitorable, considering certain misses in past couple of years (8MT steel throughput for multiple quarters vs rated 9.6MT capacity, Russel Vale coal mine, increased capex). Our Rs 500 TP implies 4.4x FY26 EBITDA of Rs 150bn.

    Stock Market Live Today: Opening Bell: Sensex, Nifty start strong; attention on Shriram Finance’s housing unit sale

    Indian benchmark indices, Sensex and Nifty, opened higher on Tuesday following a rebound in the last session, overcoming the previous week’s volatility. Focus will be on Shriram Finance’s announcement to sell its housing finance business. The 30-share BSE Sensex climbed 204.89 points to 72,981.02 in early trade. The NSE Nifty gained 73.10 points to 22,177.15. 

    Monday saw a lower opening that turned positive, supported by pharma stocks and HDFC Bank.

    Ajit Mishra of Religare Broking, expects stability in banking majors and select heavyweights in IT and energy sectors to drive further upward movement, but breaking the 22,300-22,400 range could be challenging.

    Foreign selling and uncertainty surrounding the Indian election outcome have kept investors cautious, reflected in the high volatility index. Results of the election are due on June 4.

    Foreign investors sold Indian shares worth Rs 4,499 crore on Monday, while domestic institutional investors bought Rs 3,563 crore in stocks.

    Asian markets outside Japan hovered around 15-month highs, and Wall Street closed mixed. Investors are now awaiting the U.S. inflation data on Wednesday for further rate cut clues.

    Shriram Finance’s decision to sell its housing finance business to Warburg Pincus for $554.6 million also adds to the day’s focus.

    Stock Recommendations: JINDAL STEEL & POWER: Marginal miss in EBITDA in 4Q; outlook remains bright

    (JSP IN, Mkt Cap USD11.5b, CMP INR939, TP INR1090, 16% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal

    - JSP reported revenue of INR135b (-1.5% YoY/ +15% QoQ) in 4QFY24, which was above our est. of INR122b. ASP stood at INR67,099/t (flat YoY/ +4% QoQ) vs. our est. of INR62,821/t.

    - EBITDA stood at INR24b (+12% YoY/-14% QoQ), below our est. of INR26b, due to higher cost. EBITDA/t came in at INR12,162/t (+12% YoY/-14% QoQ) vs. our est. of INR13,286/t. Coal costs rose USD10-20 per ton QoQ. APAT stood at INR9b (+52% YoY/-51% QoQ) vs. our est. of INR12.5b in 4QFY24.

    - Production volume grew 2% YoY and 6% QoQ to 2.05mt (our est. 2.04mt). Sales volume was slightly above our est. at 2.01mt (-1% YoY/+11% QoQ). Exports share remained flat YoY at 11% of total revenue in Q4FY24.

    - In FY24, revenue declined 5% YoY to INR500b, led by flat volume and weak realization. EBITDA/APAT increased by +3%/+62% YoY to INR102b/INR59b, because of RM cost moderation and an improved product mix in FY24. Sales volume was flat YoY at 7.7mt vs. our est. of 7.6mt in FY24.

    - Net debt as of Mar’24 stood at INR112b vs. INR91b in 3QFY24, implying a net debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 1.1x as of Mar’24 vs. 0.92x in 3QFY24.

    Higher discount hurts margin 

    In-line revenue; EBITDA below our estimates 

    APL Apollo Tubes (APAT IN) net sales improved ~6% YoY and ~13% QoQ to ~INR 45.7bn, largely in line with our and Consensus estimates of ~INR 44bn and ~INR 45bn, respectively. However, EBITDA declined ~13% YoY and remains flat QoQ at INR 2.8bn, slightly below our and Consensus estimates of ~INR 3.0bn and INR 3.1bn, respectively. PAT fell ~16% YoY but rose~3% QoQ to ~INR 1.7bn. Net cash was ~INR 0.2bn as on end-FY24 vs net debt of ~INR 2.4bn as on end-FY23. Further, working capital days fell from five days in FY23 to one in FY24. 

    EBITDA/tonne falls ~17% YoY and ~11% QoQ

    Sales volume grew ~4% YoY and ~12% QoQ to ~0.68mn tonne. Realization was up ~2% YoY but flat QoQ at INR 67,315/tonne. Operating cost moved up ~5% YoY and ~2% QoQ to INR 66,102/tonne. EBITDA/tonne contracted ~17% YoY and ~11% QoQ to INR 4,132 due to 1) higher discount offered to customers to achieve volume growth, and 2) increased sale of low-margin roofing sheet products. 

    Volume CAGR of 20-25% over the next three years

    As per management, FY24 volume of ~2.6mn tonne was below guidance of ~3mn tonne, primarily due to the slowdown in construction activities and delay in ramp-up of Dubai as well as Chhattisgarh-based Raipur units. Management aims for a volume CAGR of 20-25% over the next three years on 1) rise in capacity from the current 3.8mn tonne to 5.0mn tonne in FY25, and 2) ramp-up in utilization of Raipur & Dubai units.

    Valuation: reiterate Accumulate with a lower TP of INR 1,628

    We cut our EBITDA by ~20% for FY25E and ~10% for FY26E to factor in volume underperformance. However, we retain our long-term positive stance and believe capacity addition & gradual ramp-up will be key volume drivers. Also, APAT’s industry-leading capacity and strong brand positioning bode well for margin. Despite being in capex mode, the company has turned net cash in FY24 and management targets to achieve a net cash of ~INR 10bn by end-FY25. Therefore, we reiterate Accumulate. We roll over to March 2026E from December 2025E, with a new TP of INR 1,628 from INR 1,679 on 30x (unchanged) March 2026E P/E.

    Stable quarter

    Superior product mix drives margin improvement

    Eicher Motors (EIM IN) Q4 consolidated EBITDA rose 21% YoY and 4% QoQ at INR 10.3bn, with 4% YoY and flat QoQ volume growth in Royal Enfield (RE). EBITDA margin improved 40bp QoQ to 26.5% but was below our estimates by 30bp, led by a rise in employee expenses. Standalone ASP rose 3.6% QoQ and 5% YoY, led by improved product mix. VECV revenue surged 14% QoQ while was flat YoY at INR 62.7bn, with an EBITDA margin at 7.8%, down 20bp QoQ, and a PAT of INR 2.3bn. VECV’s average selling price (ASP) improved 3.7% YoY.

    Higher momentum likely in the exports markets

    The company saw improvement in retail sales in the exports market in Q4, which led to higher wholesales. It expects its new completely knocked down (CKD) plants to support exports demand once momentum improves. EIM expects no major movement in commodity prices and margin to expand, driven by improving product mix and increasing non-motorcycling revenue. It did not undertake any major price hikes in Q4. Management expects the middle weight motorcycle segment to grow in double digits in FY25, led by new launches; it plans to launch a product short term in the 450cc category.

    Valuation: retain Sell with a higher TP of INR 4,306 

    While margin trajectory improved on improving product mix, we expect underperformance in the premium segment for RE going forward. New launches in the last few years for RE haven’t been able to garner market share gains owing to intra-company cannibalization. In FY24, RE lost market share YoY on the back of rising competition. We expect RE to largely grow inline with the MC industry in FY25 despite new launches. The proportion of current RE customers upgrading to a new model may not increase significantly, as has been the case with historical launches. While one single competitor has not been majorly successful till now, combined volumes of competition have effectively taken away the outperformance of RE. Aggressive pricing from competitors would constrain RE’s pricing power in the medium term. We expect a single-digit volume CAGR for RE during FY24-26E with margin peaking. We reiterate Sell with a higher TP of INR 4,306 from INR 3,650 on 24x (from 22x) June26E P/E for the RE business and 11x (from 10x) June26E EV/EBITDA for VECV.

    Stock Market Live Today: Emkay Global’s Madhavi Arora forecasts inflation at 5.0-5.1% next month

    Madhavi Arora- Lead Economist, Emkay Global Financial Services

    “The April print was no surprise and inflation will likely tick up to 5.0-5.1% in the next month. We see more of the FY24 trends continuing in FY25. Considerable uncertainty prevails in the food price outlook. Despite healthy progress in Rabi production, uneven seasonality in vegetable prices together with increasing incidence of climate shocks warrant careful monitoring. The RBI cannot do much to influence food supply management, but this puts pressure to stay vigilant on domestic dynamics. Upside risks to inflation also emanate from geopolitical developments and their impact on supply chains as well as uncertainty around volatility in commodity prices in global financial markets and the FX space.

    However, percolation of monetary policy will continue to put downward pressure on core inflation. We see FY25E inflation at 4.6% (RBI: 4.5%), with core inflation again undershooting headline inflation, by ~90bps at 3.7% (4.4% in FY24). There is likely to be further easing of headline inflation in coming months, before the unfavorable base effects kick-in in 2HFY25”.

    Stock Recommendations: Manali Petrochemicals Limited announces FY24 audited financial results

    Manali Petrochemicals Limited (MPL), a leading Petrochemical manufacturing company and part of AM International, Singapore, announced its Audited Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter FY24 and for the Year ended FY 2023-24 today.


    During the quarter ended 31st March 2024, revenue and profit after tax on consolidated basis was Rs. 256.28 crore and Rs.1.3 crore, respectively and for the year ended 31st March 2024, revenue and profit after tax on consolidated basis was Rs.1032.35 crore and Rs.19.21 crore, respectively.

    During the year, the company continued to get affected by the dumping of imported materials at cheaper prices and the increase in raw materials cost which have impacted our margins. Despite the temporary disruptions caused on account of Cyclone Michaung in the month of December 2023, the Company could maintain its top line at consolidated level this year.

    Sequential improvement in EBITDA to endure

    Specialty Chemicals ▶Result Update ▶May 13, 2024 TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 800

    Aarti’s Q4 EBITDA at Rs2.8bn (+9% QoQ; +12% YoY) was in line with our estimates. Management maintained FY25 EBITDA guidance at Rs14.5-17bn and increased volume guidance to 20-30% from 20-25% on better demand visibility. This is the third quarter of sequential improvement in EBITDA, driven by higher volume growth (pricing remains stable) and operating leverage. Aarti is seeing better demand recovery in discretionary spends, whereas agro and pharma are still muted due to weak macros. Management has raised its guidance on capex to Rs15-18bn for FY25 (vs. Rs12-15bn to be spent on several growth projects, including chlorotoluene) and on debt to Rs34-38bn. We tweak our FY25/26 estimates by 1-3%, on higher-interest outlay on incremental debt. We retain BUY on Aarti, and nudge up our TP to Rs800/sh (30x Mar-26E EPS)

    - Total AUM of the MF industry rose 7.2% MoM to INR57.3t in Apr’24, driven by a MoM increase in AUM for liquid (INR1,406b), equities (INR1,349b), income (INR520b), balanced (INR217b), and other ETF (INR180b) funds.

    (SYRMA IN, Mkt Cap USD0.8b, CMP INR395, TP INR535, 36% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal

    Operating performance below estimates

    - SYRMA reported a weak operating performance in 4QFY24, with EBITDA margins declining 200bp YoY due to an unfavorable business mix (higher share of low-margin consumer business – 46% in 4QFY24 vs. 40% in 4QFY23).

    - However, revenue growth was strong at 67% YoY in 4QFY24, led by broad-based growth across verticals.

    - Factoring in the 4QFY24 performance and an increase in the consumer mix (low-margin vertical), we have lowered our EBITDA estimates for FY25/FY26 by 7%/13%. Accordingly, we have cut our EPS estimates by ~9%/15% in FY25/FY26. We retain our BUY rating on the stock with a TP of INR535 (35x FY26E EPS

    Motilal Oswal

    Ends FY24 with strong turnaround

    - Piramal Pharma (PIRPHARM) delivered better-than-expected operational performance for the quarter. Compared to adj. loss of INR800m in FY23, PIRPHARM’s effort has led to adj. PAT of INR560m for FY24. This was largely driven by improved execution in Contract development and manufacturing organization (CDMO) business and India consumer health business. Operational constraints adversely impacted sale growth in the complex hospital generics (CHG) segment for FY24.

    - We raise our EBITDA estimate by 11%/22% for FY25/FY26 to factor in a) robust order inflow in the CDMO segment, b) the expansion of on-patent commercial manufacturing within the CDMO segment, and c) the strategic initiatives to strengthen its presence in ROW markets and pursue backward integration in the CHG segment.

    - However, we lower PAT estimate for FY25 by 17% to factor in higher tax rate. We value PIRPHARM on an SOTP basis (17x EV/EBITDA for CDMO business; 13x EV/EBITDA for CHG and India consumer health business) to arrive at a price target of INR190.

    - PIRPHARM has demonstrated a strong turnaround in its business across segments, showcasing improved sales growth and profitability in FY24. Anticipating further momentum, particularly in the CDMO and CHG segments, along with enhanced operating leverage over the next 2-3 years, we maintain our BUY rating on the stock

    Motilal Oswal

    Operating performance beats expectations

    - UPLL reported a weak quarter as revenue declined 15% YoY, primarily due to lower agrochemical prices (down 15% YoY) and volume decline of 2% YoY. EBITDA margins contracted 450bp YoY largely due to higher rebates (~5% price impact) and liquidation of high-cost inventory, partly offset by an improved product mix and a lower cost of goods sold.

    - Gross debt (excluding perpetual bonds) increased to INR284.4b as of Mar’24 from INR230b as of Mar’23. Net debt (excluding perpetual bonds) increased to INR222b as of Mar’24 from INR169b as of Mar’24.

    - Factoring in a better-than-expected performance in 4Q and an improving operating scenario in FY25, we raise our FY25E EPS by 21% while maintaining our FY26E EPS. Reiterate Neutral with a TP of INR560.

    Earnings below our estimate

    - APL Apollo Tubes (APAT) reported muted sales volume of 679KMT (up 4% YoY and 12% QoQ) in 4QFY24, led by channel de-stocking due to steel price corrections. Further, EBITDA/MT declined ~17% YoY to ~INR4,132, due to higher rebates and discounts offered by APAT to counter the inventory destocking.

    - We cut our FY25E earnings by 8% due to lower EBITDA/MT (reduced by 4%), while largely maintaining our earnings for FY26E. We value the stock at 32x FY26E EPS to arrive at a TP of INR1,800. Reiterate BUY.

    Thermax 4QFY24 results beat our estimates, with in-line revenue and higher-than-expected PAT on strong margins. 4Q revenue/EBITDA/PAT grew by 20%/37%/20% YoY. Order inflows stood at INR23b/INR101b in 4Q/FY24 (up 2%/4% YoY), both lower than our estimates. Inflows lacked large-sized orders during the year. Though the working capital cycle is still comfortable, free cash flow was affected by large capex, primarily for TOESL/FEPL. Borrowings jumped 55% YoY to INR12.5b. The company expects the finalization of large-sized order inflows over the next few quarters. We raise our estimates by 4%/10% for FY25/26 to factor in better margins. We revise our TP to INR4,180, based on a higher multiple for core business to bake in expected revival in private capex as well as thermal ordering. We maintain our Neutral stance on Thermax as we believe that incremental investments in TOESL/FEPL will weigh on balance sheet strength and near- to medium-term return ratios.

    - Varun Beverages (VBL) reported a revenue growth of 11% YoY in 1QCY24, led by volume growth (up 7% YoY) and high realization (up 4% YoY to INR180/case).

    - EBITDA margins expanded 240bp YoY, led by improved gross margins (up 390bp YoY). This improvement can be attributed to decreased PET prices, the company’s concentrated efforts to minimize sugar content, and the adoption of lighter packaging materials.

    - We largely maintain our CY24/CY25/CY26 earnings. We reiterate our BUY rating on the stock with a TP of INR1,720

    Stock Recommendations: Ethos: Emkay Global

    Outperformance continues; Best placed to play luxury tailwind; BUY

    Retail ▶ Update ▶ May 14, 2024 TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 2,950

    Ethos continued to outperform, with 22%/27% revenue growth in Q4/FY24. Advance investments in Employees (planned store roll-outs/new vertical) and Tech/App led to a ~140bps miss on EBITDA margin which should normalize in coming quarters. Back-ended store openings in FY25 and the general elections should cause some growth moderation in H1, driving a 5-7% cut to our revenue estimate. However, margin tailwind from the expected custom duty waiver and MRP revisions (7-8% price hike) should more than offset the negative leverage and lead to margin gains in FY26E. With the landmark duty agreement, Ethos expects India allocation by luxury brands to materially improve, and targets 10x revenue by FY34 (~25% CAGR). Ethos is also making the right investments in mobile app, AI, new verticals, network expansion, exclusive brands (Favre Leuba), and marketing, to gain market share. Despite the weak macros, Ethos has topped most retail formats, and the recent correction (down ~20% over the last 3M) only adds to its attraction; retain BUY and TP of Rs2,950/share.

    Exponential trends in India; maintain ADD on outperformance

    Retail ▶Result Update ▶May 14, 2024 TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 1,650

    VBL’s Q4 EBITDA was 8-13% ahead of estimates, led by better margins as revenue was in-line. Trends for the peak summer season remain robust, with 100% utilization of enhanced capacity in Apr-24 (which is up ~40% vs. the CY22 season). Given VBL’s strong track-record of successful turnarounds for Pepsico, the acquired South Africa business (SA) improves VBL’s medium-term growth profile, as Pepsico’s market share is in a low single-digit in this large 1bn case market. Further, traction in DRC (Africa) and expanding engagement in Pepsico’s foods business remain potential upsides. Our EPS estimates increase by 5-9% on strong trends and margin beat in the India business. Though consolidation of the SA business drives a ~9% increase in revenue estimate, we believe EPS contribution will be largely neutral for the forecasted period. We increase our multiple by ~10%, which is largely attributable to value creation in the SA market; maintain ADD with TP of Rs1,650 (Rs1,500 earlier)

    Stock Recommendations: Home First Finance (HOME.NS): Initiating LONG FAST


    The recent fall in price provides an attractive buying opportunity. We believe the market is reacting to a) the increase in the BT out rate and b) 40bps QoQ NIM decline. However, HFFC continues to outperform peers on growth and profitability -- AUM growth of 35% with RoA/RoE of 3.6%/16.1% with stable asset quality for Q4. The 40bps QoQ margin decline is not a true reflection of profitability as it is linked to an increase in leverage and balance sheet liquidity. Spread declined 10bps QoQ. We view HFFC as the most scalable affordable HFC with a business model that is replicable on a pan-India basis. With AUM at just ~Rs100bn, there is a long growth runway. Valuations are now attractive at 2.4x FY265E P/B. BUY.

    Stock Market Live Today: Retail inflation hits 11-month low of 4.83% in April

    Retail inflation in the country hit a 11-month low in April 2024 at 4.83 per cent, slightly lower than the March 2024 print of 4.85 per cent.

    The latest consumer price index (CPI)-based inflation print is, however, higher than the April 2023 level of 4.70 per cent, data released by the Ministry of Statistics & Programme Implementation (MOSPI) showed.

    A comforting factor is that the ongoing seven-phased General Elections has so far had no impact on the headline inflation number, although this was a concern at some point of time.

    Stock Recommendations: IIFL on Bank of Baroda - Upgrade to BUY on attractive relative valuations

    1) BOB’s 4Q PAT was 8%/10% ahead of Consensus/IIFLe led by better NIM, healthy fee income and non-II.

    2) Loan growth of 4% QoQ/ 12.5% YoY was broad based. Deposit growth picked up (7% QoQ) led by international deposits (11% QoQ), driving 2ppt improvement in LDR to 80%. With limited room to increase LDR, we build ~12% loan Cagr over FY25-27.

    3) Adj. NIMs widened 5bps QoQ led by loan yield expansion and drawdown of excess LCR (121% now), which was partly offset by 10bps increase in CoD. We expect stable NIM in the near-term due to limited residual deposit re-pricing, and slower NIM compression in a rate-cut cycle due to the highest share of MCLR linked loan book (50%).

    4) Despite higher slippages in MSME and Agri, GNPA ratio improved 16bps QoQ on the back of better recoveries/upgrades. FY24 credit cost of 60bps was higher, as it fully provided for Go First exposure (18bps impact), and is confident of recovery given that it’s fully collateralised and one-third is government guaranteed. We expect credit cost to normalise to avg. 80 bps over FY25-27.

    5) We raise our est. by 7-9% and TP to Rs300 (18% upside) based on 1.1x FY26 P/B. Upgrade the stock to BUY as it is trading at 40% discount to SBI, despite similar profitability (avg. ROA/ROE of 1%/14% over FY25-26.
