    Goldman Sachs: India Clean Energy Transition to drive multi-decade rise in transmission capex; initiate Power Grid, Hitachi (Buy), Schneider (Sell)

    Power transmission is key to India’s energy transition and global new energy cost leadership ambitions. India’s large, highly integrated grid enables the utilisation of least-cost renewable generation sites, and by keeping the central grid access free, the government is assisting the viability of renewable projects via indirect financial support worth US$270bn. Creating surplus transmission infrastructure and keeping it free for renewables makes economic sense, in our view, as the gains from transition should more than offset the incremental network cost. In line with

    this, we estimate India’s power transmission capex requirement at $500bn+ by FY50E, c.30% of the overall energy transition capital outlay.

    We initiate on Power Grid (PGRD.BO) at Buy (12-m TP of Rs355; 29% upside). We view Power Grid as the largest beneficiary of our transition-linked grid capex estimate, which think the stock is not fully pricing in. Additionally, with Power Grid’s large balance sheet, low cost of debt and strong annual FCF generation, we estimate it could fund c.30% of India’s grid capex by FY32E without reducing dividend payouts. We also think a cost of equity reduction led by beta compression could be another catalyst for stock re-rating.

    We initiate on Hitachi Energy India (HITN.BO) at Buy (Rs8,250; 9% upside). We like its positioning as a pure upstream manufacturing beneficiary of India’s energy transition, with tech leadership in high voltage equipment and highly indigenized manufacturing capabilities. It should also benefit from tailwinds of: grid digitalization, global transmission equipment shortage, global supply chain diversification theme.

    We initiate on Schneider Electric Infra (SEIN.BO) at Sell (Rs470; 41% downside). While we see Schneider as a potential beneficiary of the expected rise in distribution capex, increase in energy efficiency-linked spend and broader digitalisation and global supply chain diversification trends, risk-reward appears unfavorable post a 375% rally in the share price over the last 12 months. Shares appear to be pricing in c.8% terminal growth beyond the 18% core earnings CAGR we expect in FY23-40E.

    Key risks: Delayed/slower-than-expected pick-up in transmission project awards, rise in competitive intensity/cost of debt hampering TBCB project IRRs and shortage of transmission equipment hampering project execution.

    Stock Market Live Updates: KIE on ICICI Lombard

    Retain REDUCE; FV Rs1,550

    ICICI Lombard has fared well due to a combination of a better pricing environment and better risk management. While near-term profitability improvement may be visible, we expect growth aggression to keep medium-term profitability rangebound. However, the motor sector has fewer moats, and hence the performance of even the best-performing player is not insulated when industry aggression increases; rich valuations encourage competition. 

    While its premium valuations reflect superior performance, the scarcity premium (if any) may be at risk from listing of motor insurance peer. We are revising up our estimates by 3-4%, retain REDUCE with revised FV of Rs 1,550 from Rs 1,475.

    Stock Market Live Today: Motilal Oswal on oil marketing companies

    OMCs: Earnings volatility a risk; but attractively placed 

    HPCL, BPCL, and IOCL have corrected 9-18% since mid-Feb as the gross marketing margins on petrol/diesel have declined to an average of INR2.3/INR0.2 per lit in Apr’24 from an average of INR8.0/INR3.4 per lit in 4QFY24.

    The current weakness in marketing margins is largely attributable to geopolitical headwinds, ongoing refining capacity maintenance (which has kept diesel GRM high),

    and elevated freight rates for oil/product transportation. As such, we expect marketing margins to normalize at higher levels from 2QFY25 onwards as the impact of these events subsides.

    HPCL, BPCL, and IOCL are currently trading at FY26E P/B of 1.1x, 1.4x, and 1.2x vs. Oct’23 valuations of 0.8x, 1.0x, and 0.7x, respectively. However, marketing margins were significantly weaker at INR2/-7 per lit for MS/HSD in Oct’23.

    Stock Market Live Today: JM Financial bullish on life insurers, forecasts strong growth and margin expansion

    “We initiate coverage on four life insurers, viz., Life Insurance Corporation of India (LICI), SBI Life Insurance Company (SBILIFE), ICICI Prudential Life Insurance (IPRU) and HDFC Life Insurance (HDFCLIFE), with a positive stance. Our favourable view stems from continued under-coverage of mortality risk (just 22% pure risk cover-compared to 100%+ for emerging Asian peers), lack of a national social security system (NPS AUM of INR 11trln, has grown at 37% CAGR, waiting to be annuitised) and an established sales machinery that commands 18% wallet share of household financial savings. The industry is expected to report a sub-par growth of c.8% in individual premiums for FY24, against 12% CAGR over FY13-FY23. This was on the back of pre-buying in traditional products in Mar’23, following introduction of tax on non-mortality returns. We build in growth of 12.1%/13.2% over FY25e/FY26e, with private insurers outperforming LIC. We expect VNB margins to be flattish in FY24e – at 21.5%, 10 bps below FY23. Although LIC’s margins expanded on the back of 50% YoY growth in the non-par business, private insurers under coverage have seen margins contract from 29.7% in FY23 to 27.3% in 9MFY24 – due to higher share of low-margin ULIPs, and increased opex. 

    We build expansion in margins to 23.9% by FY26e, led by LIC (c.3%), with IPRU Life and HDFC Life expecting 1-2% margin expansion and SBI Life’s margins seen flattish over FY24-FY26.HDFC Life, having already weathered headwinds from competition in the parent channel, Exide Life acquisition and taxation of higher ticket policies, is our top pick in the sector. With its strong product proposition and enhanced distribution strength of parent banca and agency, we have the greatest comfort in its growth delivery, with margin expansion expected from FY26 onwards. We see 35% upside from current levels for our TP of INR 819.LIC is the joker in the pack, with its embedded value highly sensitive to equity markets. While the company will deliver returns of EV below our hurdle rate, valuation below 0.8x its embedded value looks unjustified. We expect the insurer to report substantial EV growth for FY24, and volume growth through a long runway in the non-par business. We are structurally positive on SBI Life and ICICI Prudential, as they have strong brand recall and exclusive channels to bring in growth with consistent margins. We expect them to compound at high-teens over FY24-FY26, in-line with returns on embedded value.”

    Stock Market Live Today: Here pre-market views of Vikas Jain, Senior Research Analyst at Reliance

    Nifty took support at its 50 DEMA on Tuesday. Expects positive on mid-cap and small cap stocks. ICICI Lombard announced impressive Q4 results. Vodafone FPO worth Rs18000cr – between Rs10-11Resilts today till 22nd April. Infosys, Bajaj Auto, HDFC Life, ICICI Securities.

    Market Outlook Today – Positive opening in the Asian markets, modest gain US Index Future, sharp decline oil price to $88/bbl from $91/bbl, hope of reduce geo-political tension in the gulf region, IMF raised India’s growth forecast by 30bps to 6.8% and technically Nifty took support at its 50 DEMA, may open domestic equity on a positive note. US market slipped up to 1% on Wednesday and fell third trading sessions. Hawkish remarks by US Fed Chairman on Tuesday, rising US 10-Year Bond Yield to Month high (4.60%), slowing China economy growth (lower than expected China GDP and IIP number) and concern of geo-political tension in the gulf region and mixed bag of US corporate results, pulled down US market. US Fed Chairman Powell signaled Tuesday that policymakers will wait longer than previously anticipated to cut interest rates following a series of surprisingly high inflation readings. Gift Nifty is up 40 points or 0.2%. Previous day, domestic equities ended Month low amid weak global cues, rising geo-political tension and uncertainty about the US cut interest rate pulled down the market. However, small cap and mid cap stocks posted solid gain. Hope of good quarterly results, IMD forecast above normal monsoon and falling oil price will be positive for the market sentiment. However, global market volatility, geo-political tension in the gulf region and ahead of domestic quarterly results may keep the market higher intra-day volatility. Traders buy on decline strategy and expect positive for metal, NBFC, auto and IT stocks.

    Gold – Gold price decline from record high on account of profit booking and expectation of reduce geo-political tension in the gulf region. Gold decline marginally to $2371/ounce

    Stock Market Live Today: Here are pre-market views by Avdhut Bagkar Technical and Derivatives Analyst, StoxBox

    The weakness that has emerged on Wall Street as crude prices tumbled partly reflects ongoing concerns about the outlook for interest rates following yesterday’s remarks by Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell. In Asia, markets were mixed on Thursday, with some modest gains. Meanwhile, the dollar paused and bond markets stabilized as investors took a step back to assess the interest rate outlook. The Indian market may open on a cautious note on Thursday after Wall Street stocks extended their losing streak to the longest since January amid heightened tensions in the Middle East and renewed uncertainty around rate cuts. However, any potential downside may be limited as the focus shifts to the Q4 earnings season.

    The 50 index witnessed a consecutive gap-down opening, tracking weak global cues. The index opened 124 points lower and breached the 50DMA. It traded in a volatile manner, however, failed to reclaim the intraday high of 22213 and closed in the middle quartile of trading range on below average volume. The index is anticipated to attract bullish strength on reclaiming the average line currently trading at 22162.

    Stock Market Live Today: Motilal Oswal on ICICI Lombard

    ICICI LOMBARD: Strong show; better guidance for combined ratio

    (ICICIGI IN, Mkt Cap USD9.7b, CMP INR1649, TP INR2100, 27% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal

    - ICICI Lombard’s (ICICIGI) NEP came in line with our estimate at INR44b (up 17% YoY) in 4QFY24. Total investment income was in line with our expectations (3% beat on policyholders account and 5% miss on shareholders account).

    - The claims ratio came in at 68.6% vs. 70.0% 3QFY24 (our est. 70.9%). The combined ratio stood at 102.2% vs. 103.6% in 3QFY24 (our est. ~104.3).

    - PAT grew 19% YoY to INR5.2b in 4Q, beating our estimate by 17%. For FY24, PAT came in at INR19.2b vs. INR16b in FY23 (20% growth YoY).

    - The company has improved its combined ratio guidance to 101.5% as the exit rate for FY25 vs. 102 earlier.

    - Management is upbeat about continued gains in market share in the motor segment and retail health segment. With favourable regulatory moves industry trends would be supportive. With FY24-26 PAT CAGR at 25%, RoE reaching 20% in FY26 and combined ratio expected to improve to 101.5% in FY26, we maintain BUY with a target of INR2,100 (35x FY26 EPS).

    Stock Market Live Today: Small cars bottoming-out; prefer MSUMI to play the PV story: Emkay Global

    “We highlight bottoming-out of the small car segment with narrowing decline, as affordability catches up amid steep regulation-led price hikes largely behind. SUV shift/share has stabilized in the past 3 quarters at 52-54% levels in PVs, even as underlying trends continue to deteriorate; we highlight new demand/bookings to have dipped in FY24 vs reported 9% wholesale growth

    We maintain our cautious stance on PVs on slowing demand-trends (lack of major new launches, normalized channel inventory, declining order book) and increasing disruptive risks (entry of global EV players like Tesla). We retain REDUCE ratings on MSIL, TTMT, and Uno Minda, and ADD rating on M&M (potential upturn in tractors, reasonable valuation). We prefer to play the PV story through MSUMI (BUY rating), given its bottom-up growth & margin triggers backed by secular premiumization/EV tailwinds.”

    Stock Market Live Updates: Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist, Geojit Financial Services, on market outlook

    “The Iran-Israel tension in West Asia continues to weigh on stock markets globally. Until this uncertainty is out of the way, markets are unlikely to take a strong directional up move. The hope is that the feared Israeli response will not lead to an escalated regional conflict. This is reflected in the 3% drop in crude price during the last two trading sessions.

    Meanwhile the market is coming to terms with ‘higher-for-longer interest rate’ in the US since inflation continues to be sticky at lower levels. It seems that the market is reconciled to 2 rate cuts this year, that too backloaded.

    Since the US 10-year bond yield is hovering around 4.57%, more FII selling is likely, putting pressure on large-caps. This will provide opportunities to investors to slowly accumulate high quality largecaps where the margin of safety is high. In the near-term, however, heightened activity is likely in mid and smallcaps, particularly in stocks where floating stocks are low. This is a risky area.”
