    Stock market live updates: Pre-opening market comment by Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP (Research), Mehta Equities Ltd

    “Overnight surge in US markets and subsequent gains in Asian equities are pointing towards a firm opening for both Sensex & Nifty. A fall in global crude oil prices towards $83 a barrel raises hopes of easing tensions in the Middle East. Investors are also hoping for easing of geopolitical tensions, and are also expecting for the continuation of the current regime in the general elections, which has helped markets reverse the falling trend over the past few sessions. This is despite FII selling and also uninspiring Q4 results from Reliance and frontline technology companies. The technical landscape suggests Nifty’s major support at 22200 mark, with interweek support at 22000 and then at 21710 mark.”

  • April 24, 2024 08:50

    Stock market live updates: Crude oil, bullion price movements

    Ms. Riya Singh, Research Analyst – Currency and Commodities, Emkay Global Financial Services on markets.

    Oil Prices Steady as Israel-Iran Tensions Ease, Gold Slides While Copper Declines

    Oil prices experienced a minor setback followed by stabilization as global markets closely monitored the evolving dynamics between Israel and Iran, with signs indicating a reduction in hostilities. The focus remains on Israel’s objectives, including the elimination of what it perceives as the final bastion of Hamas in Gaza and the liberation of remaining hostages. These pursuits are expected to maintain heightened tensions in the region, influencing market sentiments.

    Brent crude hovered above $87 per barrel, having slipped marginally by 0.3% on Monday, while WTI remained close to $82. Analysts anticipate crude oil prices to enter a phase of consolidation, potentially marking a period of stability in the near term.

    Meanwhile, bullion metals experienced a notable decline, with gold leading the downward trend. Despite the current weakness, experts view this as a healthy correction rather than a reversal of the bullish trajectory. The future outlook for gold remains optimistic, with its ascent largely underpinned by continued central bank buying, particularly from Asian and other emerging markets. The strategic nature of these purchasing decisions is expected to sustain demand throughout 2024.

    Emphasizing the importance of considering indicators such as relative strength indexes (RSIs), observers suggest that after periods of overbought conditions, a period of consolidation or correction is inevitable. Furthermore, speculation arises regarding potential interventions by Japan to bolster the weakening yen, which could inadvertently support gold’s resurgence by denting the strength of the US dollar.

    In the base metals, copper witnessed a decline from its recent peak near $10,000 per ton, mirroring the broader trend across base metal markets. Market participants are eagerly awaiting a barrage of US data, which could provide insights into the Federal Reserve’s future monetary policy decisions, particularly concerning interest rates.

    Q4FY24 Result First Cut - Revenue and PAT misses market estimates

    Parth Shah, Research Analyst, StoxBox

    Revenue stood at Rs. 3,927 crores in Q4FY24 (up 3.2% QoQ / up 8.5% YoY) owing to strong performance of its India business. However, revenues were marginally lower than market expectations of Rs. 3,962 crores.

    # In the company’s branded business segment, India’s business revenue rose to Rs. 2,480 crores in Q4FY24 (up 10.0% YoY), led by India Beverages business growing 3% YoY. India Foods business continued its strong trajectory, with revenue up 20% YoY including Capital Foods.

    # The company’s International business revenue stood at Rs. 1,052 crores in Q4FY24 (up 7.0% YoY).

    # Non-branded business revenue stood at Rs. 402 crores in Q4FY24 (up 4.2% YoY).

    # The company’s EBITDA rose 10.0% QoQ / up 23.0% YoY to Rs. 630 crores in Q4FY24, surpassing street estimates of Rs. 594 crores. EBITDA margin rose to 16.0% (up 99 bps QoQ / up 189 bps YoY), led by improved profitability across businesses.

    # Profit after Tax stood at Rs. 212 crores (down 29.6% QoQ / down 26.7% YoY) in Q4FY24, lower than market estimates of Rs. 303 crores, while PAT margin came in at 5.4% (down 252 bps QoQ / down 260 bps YoY).

    # The Board has recommended a final dividend of Rs. 7.75 per equity share.


    Tata Consumer Products Ltd. reported healthy revenue growth led by strong growth in Indian business. The company’s India businesses continued their strong trajectory, with a revenue growth of 40% in FY24. The premiumization agenda continues to progress well, with the premium portfolio in both tea and salt showing good growth and contributing to an increasing share of the overall portfolio. The company also delivered a strong performance in International markets and significant margin improvement. The consolidated EBITDA margins surpassed market consensus due to better operational efficiency. Going ahead, the domestic business will continue to improve, led by growth in the tea and salt business. Moreover, we remain hopeful that the company’s recently acquired new business - Capital Foods and Organic India - will drive significant revenue and cost synergies over the medium term. Additionally, the easing inflation and forecast of normal monsoon bodes well for the overall business over the medium to long term basis.

    Set for the new normal of 25-15-15; retain BUY

    Emkay Global

    TARGET PRICE (Rs) : 700

    IPRU reported a mixed performance in Q4/FY24, where the slight miss in VNB margins was offset by a minor beat in APE, which led to VNB in line with our estimates. The negative surprise came in at Rs2.9bn (~0.8% of FY23EV) due to negative mortality variance in EV on account of IBNR/IBNER adjustments related to the credit life portfolio. Overall, with APE growth rebounding in H2 and better growth visibility in FY25, IPRU appears to deliver ~25% VNB margin, 15% APE growth, and 15% operating RoEV (25-15-15). To reflect Q4 developments, we have adjusted our FY25-26E estimates, leading to a minor reduction in VNB margin and an increase in APE, leading to broadly unchanged VNB. We reiterate our BUY rating on the stock with our unchanged Mar-25E TP of Rs700 (implying FY26E P/EV of 1.8x), as we believe the company has navigated through the external and internal challenges and is well set for 25-15-15 normal.

    Stock market live updates: SHRIRAM FINANCE

    Diversification and strong execution boost growth outlook

    (SHFL IN, Mkt Cap USD10.9b, CMP INR2427, TP INR2900, 19% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    - Shriram Finance (SHFL), the merged entity of Shriram Transport Finance (SHTF) and Shriram City Union Finance (SCUF), has emerged as a stronger player in all its product segments. With a more diversified AUM mix and better access to liabilities, SHFL is effectively driving cross-selling of non-vehicle products to its customers.

    - With a legacy spanning over four decades, SHFL has demonstrated its execution capability in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment across multiple credit and economic cycles. Gold loans and personal loans have now been rolled out across most of the branches. The company is also extending its 2W franchise to more locations and dealerships. In the MSME segment, the company wants to first gain insights into the respective micro-markets before scaling up.

    - SHFL is rated AA+ by both CRISIL and India Ratings. Although our investment thesis is not predicated on a credit rating upgrade, we believe SHFL now has a strong case to work with credit rating agencies for an upgrade. A credit rating upgrade is an option value, which can help SHFL reduce its borrowing costs by 40-50bp.

    Stock market live updates: MAHINDRA LOGISTICS

    In-line performance; improved Express performance enhances EBITDA

    (MAHLOG IN, Mkt Cap USD0.4b, CMP INR451, TP INR420, 7% Downside, Neutral)

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    - Mahindra Logistics (MLL)’s 4QFY24 revenue grew by ~14% YoY to INR14.5b (in line). EBITDA margin came in at 3.9% (in line), down 100bp YoY and up 20bp QoQ. EBITDA decreased 11% YoY to INR566m (in line). MLL posted a net loss of INR128m vs. INR8m in 4QFY23 (our estimate of INR6m loss).

    - EBITDA was impacted by one-time charges relating to IT integration and provisions. APAT was hit by higher tax outgo. Losses in the Express business narrowed as capacity utilization improved in 4Q.

    - The 4Q performance was largely in line with our estimates. Going forward, Express business losses are expected to decline as volumes improve, which should result in improvement in overall EBITDA for MLL. Strong order intake in the 3PL business should also support growth in the near to medium term. We marginally increase our FY26 EBITDA/PAT estimates by 2%/6% on an improved earnings outlook. We estimate a CAGR of 23%/37% in revenue/EBITDA over FY24-26. We reiterate our Neutral rating with a revised TP of INR420 (premised on 23x FY26E EP

    Stock market live updates: CYIENT DLM: Revenue growth remains strong

    (CYIENTDL IN, Mkt Cap USD0.7b, CMP INR687, TP INR840, 22% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal

    - Cyient DLM (CYIENTDL) reported another quarter of strong revenue growth. Its revenue jumped ~30% YoY in 4QFY24, fueled by significant traction from the Defense (+78% YoY) and Aerospace (+52% YoY) verticals. However, EBITDA margin contracted 100bp YoY to 10.5%, primarily due to the increase in SG&A expenses.

    - We broadly maintain our FY25/FY26 EPS estimates. Reiterate BUY with a TP of INR840.

  • April 24, 2024 08:43

    Stock market live updates: ICICI PRUDENTIAL LIFE INSURANCE

    Higher costs and adverse product mix impact VNB

    (IPRU IN, Mkt Cap USD10.3b, CMP INR595, TP INR700, 18% Upside, Buy)

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    Guides APE growth in line with industry and steady VNB margins

    - In 4QFY24, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance (IPRU) reported 9.6% YoY growth in APE to INR36.16b. The protection and ex-ULIP individual savings segments declined YoY by 4.6% and 19.9%, respectively. ULIPs grew 77% YoY.

    - VNB declined 26% YoY to INR7.8b (19% miss), due to a sharp correction in margins to 21.5% (down 140bp QoQ) vs. our estimate of 26%. In FY24, APE stood at INR90.5b (4.7% YoY) and VNB at INR22.3b (-20% YoY). VNB margin for FY24 stood at 24.6% (32% for FY23).

    - Considering the 4Q performance, we have cut our estimates for APE and VNB margin for FY25 and FY26. We expect IPRU to deliver an 18% CAGR in VNB over FY24-26. Going ahead, the company’s ability to sustain strong premium growth and VNB margins will be vital for re-rating of the stock. Retain BUY with a TP of INR700 (based on 1.7x Mar’26E EV).

    Stock market live updates: TVS Motor 

    Continues to strengthen positioning across categories

    Emkay Global

    TVSL’s stock price has declined ~14% from its recent peak, even as it continues to improve its positioning across categories in FY24 with market share gains in the fast-growing 125cc motorcycle category, scooters and exports of 610/90/60bps to ~ 15%/~25%/25.7% respectively. While the domestic 2W recovery continues apace (strong start in Apr-24MTD with 26% YoY growth in industry retails, following on from 9% growth in FY24), TVSL is outperforming larger peer BJAUT in exports also. The company remains the leader among incumbents in E-2Ws (second-largest player overall with ~19% market share). We trim FY25E/26E EPS by ~3/6% resp, owing to slower export recovery. We retain our BUY rating with revised TP of Rs2,250/share (28x FY26E PER + Rs150/share for captive financing arm); TVSL is our top pick in Auto OEMs.

    Stock market live updates: Sun Pharma: ‘Specialty’ way of driving growth prospects

    Motilal Oswal Financial

    - In this note, we explored the specialty pipeline of SUNP, examining products under development, the commercialized portfolio, and the competitive dynamics within each segment.

    - The overall R&D expenditure is expected to increase by 33% YoY in FY24 and maintain an 18% CAGR over FY24-26 to support clinical development of certain assets. Despite some delays in the clinical trial processes of Ilumya, MM-II, and GL0034, the innovative pipeline continues to be the most promising within the India listed space.

    - For five consecutive years, SUNP has consistently surpassed industry performance in the domestic formulation (DF) segment, largely fueled by improved volume uptake. Despite being aggressive in new product launches, SUNP has yet to see an improvement in its growth prospects

    - We are factoring 19% earnings CAGR over FY24-26 on the back of 12%/13% sales CAGR in DF/EMs, 18% sales CAGR in specialty portfolio, and 18% CAGR in R&D spent. We value SUNP at 30x 12M forward earnings to arrive at a PT of INR1,870. We remain positive on SUNP on the back of a) building robust brand franchise in developed market and b) superior execution in the DF segment. Maintain BUY.
