IDEAL STOCK Suggest 4 Ways to Approach the STOCK

AxisBank Q4 Result Disappoints | IDEAL STOCK 

While There Was No Doubt Among Experts About What Kind Of Numbers The Lender Had Reported, Their Approach Toward The Stock Is Quite Different From One Another's.

Shares Of Axis Bank Are Likely To Open Lower On Friday Morning As Investors Will Be Wary Of The Disastrous Set Of Results It Delivered For The March Quarter.

Multiple Experts IDEAL STOCK Spoke To Believe That The Stock Could See A Lower Opening. However, That Does Not Necessarily Mean It Is An Exit Point Or A Point Of Entry Either.
The Stock Closed 1 Percent Lower At Rs 494.55 On BSE Ahead Of The Results Announcement Post Market Hours On Thursday.
While There Was No Doubt Among Experts About What Kind Of Numbers The Lender Had Reported, Their Approach Toward The Stock Is Quite Different From One Another's. Here Are Four Approaches One Could Have Toward The Stock.
Cheapest Corporate-Focused Lender
Sanjiv Bhasin Of IIFL Highlighted How, After The Correction And The Likely Fall Ahead, Axis Bank Could Become The Cheapest Corporate Bank In Terms Of Valuation.
“Axis Bank Has Managed To Deliver A Kitchen-Sink Quarter Performance And Bring Out Everything (To The Table). These Were Largely Known And Hidden…The Way It Has Happened Is Disappointing. The Stock Has Corrected About 10-12 Percent And Has Been An Underperformer. We Will Have To Wait For A Change Of Regime Now,” Bhasin, Who Is EVP—Markets And Corporate Affairs At IIFL, Told IDEAL STOCK.
Speaking On The Outlook For The Stock One Year From Now, Bhasin Said It Is Likely To Be In A Better Position. Classification Of Npas Has Been Standardized By The Reserve Bank Of India, He Said, Adding That The Road Forward Looks Smoother.
“On A Price To Book Basis, It Is The Cheapest Corporate Bank As Well,” He Said.
Wait And Watch Approach
Meanwhile, Investors Could Also Adopt A Wait And Watch Approach Instead Of Reacting In A Knee-Jerk Manner, Believes AK Prabhakar Of IDBI Capital.
“Before Trying To Catch A Falling Knife, Investors Should First Wait For A Rejig In Management. The Q4 Results Were Full Of Write Offs. Hence, Wait Before You Start Buying Even Though It May Open Lower On Friday,” Said Prabhakar, Who Is Head Of Research At IDBI Capital.
Look Outside! There’s More...
Having Said That, One Could Also Take A Look At Peers In The Corporate-Focused Segment, Experts Said.
“…The Only Corporate Focused Private Bank We Hold Is Yes Bank, Which Has Proved That Unarguably It Is The Best Managed Corporate Focused Bank In Terms Of Its Scorching Pace Of Growth In Assets And Maintaining Pristine Asset Quality In The Midst Of Spike In Soured Loans Among Its Corporate Focused Rivals,” Ajay Bodke, CEO And Chief Portfolio Manager (PMS), Prabhudas Lilladher, Told IDEALSTOCK.
A Word Of Caution
Lastly, Analysts Also Recommend Being Cautious About The Stock Before You Rush To Buy It. Sanjeev Jain Of Ashika Stock Broking Said That While The Results Did Disappoint, The Worst May Not Be Past.
“Wait Out Before You Plan To Buy The Stock Because We Don't Know How Much Pain Is Still Left In Terms Of Asset Quality. I Think Investors Should Avoid The Stock Until The Picture Is Clearer. It Also Reported Tax Write Back Of Rs 1,300 Crore, Without Which The Net Loss Would Have Been Wider," Said Jain, Who Is Associate Vice-President At Ashika Stock Broking.
Case File
The Bank On Thursday Reported A Loss Of Rs 2,188. 74 Crore For January-March, As Against A Net Profit Of Rs 1,225 Crore In The Same Quarter Last Year.
This Is The First Ever Quarterly Loss Posted By Axis Bank Since It Listed Over Two Decades Ago.
Slippages For The Quarter Nearly Quadrupled Year-On-Year To Rs 16,536 Crore, With Nearly Rs 13,900 Crore Of New Slippages Coming From The Corporate Sector. So More Than 80 Percent Of The Slippages Were From Companies Rated 'BB' And Below.

Top 10 money-making ideas which could give up to 22% return in April expiry week

Here is a list of top 10 stock ideas from different experts which can offer up to 22% return in the next 30 days.


“There are a few technical pieces of evidence that justify 10,600-10,640 levels. First, post the Union Budget, the Nifty corrected from 10,638 and 10,631 on two occasions, which will now act as a strong hurdle,” Sameet Chavan, Chief Analyst, Technicals and Derivatives at Angel Broking, said.

This coincides with its 50 percent Fibonacci retracement of the recent fall from 11,171.55 to 9,951.90. Also, the upward sloping trendline connecting previous bottoms (9,687.55 and 10,276.30) is now converging around the same area.

Chavan sees the index heading to 10,750 levels if 10,600 is breached. “As a chartist, traders are respecting this zone of 10,600–10,640. In case of violation of this hurdle in the upward direction on a sustainable basis, we may see the relief rally getting extended 10,720–10,750. But it certainly does not change the broader outlook, as we still expect the possibility of selling pressure resuming at higher levels.”

He advises traders to stay light for a while, focusing on key levels and adopting a stock-centric approach for the next few days.

As far as support levels are concerned, 10,495 followed by 10,355 would now be crucial.

This counter is in a downtrend and remains an underperformer. It is moving in a well-defined down sloping channel since the highs of Rs 598 per share registered in September 2016. It again approached the demand line of the said channel, which attracted buying support and propped up prices from the lows of Rs 330 per share a couple of weeks back.
After retracing major part of the said pullback rally from Rs 325-372 levels, this counter appears to have formed a base around Rs 332 per share and looks ready for a take-off. Hence, positional traders should go long for an initial target of Rs 372 per share with a stop of Rs 327 per share.

After the recent breakout above its 200 daily moving average, this counter slipped into consolidation phase and appears to have resumed its upswing from the said congestion zone of Rs 1,360–1,290 levels. In such a scenario it should head towards its logical target of Rs 1,469 per share. Hence, positional trade can create longs for the said target with a stop of Rs 1,297 per share.

This counter appears to have resumed its upmove after trading in the recent congestion zone of Rs 350–335. After sustaining above Rs 340 levels, it can be expected to head towards its logical targets of Rs 372 per share. The stop suggested for the trade is Rs 332 per share.

Wockhardt: Buy| Target: Rs 863| Stop loss: Rs 748| Return: 8%

Post the correction in January, the stock slipped into consolidation mode. After three months, the stock burst through this congestion zone and confirmed a neckline breakout from the inverse head and shoulder pattern. Volumes during this price action were almost thrice its average daily volumes, indicating strong buying interest after the base building process. We expect the stock to extend this rally and eventually climb towards our near-term target of Rs.863 per share. Traders are advised to follow a strict stop loss at Rs748 per share.

Since the last couple of weeks, this stock has been consolidating in a small range. On Friday, we witnessed a surge in the last couple of hours of trade. The surge was quite abrupt but confirmed a breakout from the near-term hurdle of Rs 791 per share on a closing basis. This was accompanied by massive volumes, providing credence to this move. One can look to go long for a target of Rs 857 per share by following a strict stop loss of Rs 763 per share.

The breakout from the bullish flag continuance pattern signals resumption of the next up leg after a couple of days breather in the stock. After correcting over 60% from its 2015 peak, the stock has been languishing in the Rs 600-350 range for over a year. In the current week, a swift rally backed by unusually high volumes indicates that the stock has attracted the attention of market participants as most midcap IT stocks have seen a decent rally over the past few months.

The bullish flag formation on the daily chart indicates a breather after the sharp rally and provides a fresh entry opportunity to ride the next up leg. The stock is likely to accelerate momentum and head higher in the near-term towards Rs 535 per share as it is the 80% retracement of the most recent down leg from Rs 572 to Rs 353 per share.

The share price of Zensar Technologies has been trading in a rectangle formation by oscillating within a broader range of Rs 750–1,130 per share since August 2015. Over the past 15 months, the stock made multiple failed attempts to sustain above the Rs 960 mark, indicating stiff resistance at that level. The stock logged a breakout from the past 11 week’s consolidation range of Rs 857–997, backed by heavy volumes, indicating a resumption of the uptrend.

Among oscillators, the weekly moving average convergence divergence (MACD) found support from its nine week average and is now pointing upward. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) has retested earlier breakout levels indicating an acceleration of momentum after forming a base above the zero line.

The stock’s momentum is likely to accelerate and head higher in the near-term towards Rs 1,125 per share as it is the implicated target of the weekly consolidation (Rs 997-857) coinciding with identical highs near the upper band of the rectangle pattern of Rs 1,130 per share. On the downside, immediate support remains around Rs 935 per share as it is the placement of eight week’s exponential moving average (EMA) coinciding with the current week’s low.

The D-Link stock has registered a breakout above the bullish flag pattern signalling a positive bias. The breakout was accompanied by strong volume of more than three times the 200-day average volume of 3 lakh shares per session, indicating larger participation in the direction of the trend. Thus, supporting continuance of the positive trend.

During the previous week, the stock witnessed a strong rebound from the support area of Rs 81 per share and rallied to Rs 112 per share in just three sessions. Post this, the index consolidated for the last three sessions during which it retraced its previous up move by just 23.6%, signalling a positive price structure.

We expect the stock to continue its current upmove and test levels of Rs 126 per share being the confluence of the 61.8 percent retracement of the entire decline from Rs 153 to Rs 81 and the high of February 2018 around Rs 126 levels.

The share price of PNC Infratech remains in an uptrend, forming a rising peak and trough on the weekly chart. The stock has rallied to an all-time high of Rs 228 per share in December 2018. Since then, it has been in a corrective decline for the last three months. The recent price activity suggests that the corrective decline has approached maturity and is likely to resume a fresh upmove.

The stock has recently rebounded from the support area of Rs 150-155 per share, being the confluence of its 52-week EMA and 80 percent retracement of the previous up move from Rs 130 to Rs 228. The sharp upmove in the last two weeks from the support area signals a reversal of the corrective trend and offers a fresh entry opportunity. We expect the stock to continue with its current upmove and test Rs 211 per share, being the 80 percent retracement of the entire decline from Rs 228 to Rs 148 per share.

Godrej Properties’ share price was consolidating in a broader range of Rs 728–859 per share over the past two months. During this two month consolidation, the stock has taken support from the gap area of January 8 on multiple occasions, indicating sturdy base formation around Rs 728 levels.

At present, it registered a breakout from the falling trendline drawn adjoining subsequent high of Rs 912–849 supported by above average volumes, indicating termination of an intermediate correction. Among oscillators, RSI found support at its one-year long support base of 35, pointing upward, confirming base formation. The stock is likely to head higher in the near-term towards Rs 850 per share, which is the placement of identical highs coinciding with the upper band of the broader consolidation range of Rs 859-728.

What changed your markets while you were sleeping

A host of domestic earnings, F&O expiry-related volatility and global cues including US President Donald Trump’s slamming of Opec for rising crude prices will influence the domestic stock market when it resumes trade on Monday. Technical charts are giving mixed signals. Let’s check out what else might matter to Dalal Street through the day:


Singapore trading sets stage for positive start 
Nifty futures on the Singapore Stock Exchange were trading 58 points, or 0.55 per cent, lower at 10,641, indicating a weak start for the Nifty50. 

The Nifty50 on Friday settled flat to form an indecisive 'Doji' candle on the daily chart. The index ended up making a bullish candle for the fourth consecutive session on the weekly chart, which meant the upside is capped for now, unless Nifty comes out of its rangebound mode. “Unless the Nifty50 emerges out of this 10,594 – 10,509 range with a breakout on either side, trading shall remain listless,” said Mazhar Mohammad, Chief Strategist for Technical Research & Trading Advisory at Chartvi .. 

F&O data suggests further upside 

Minor Put writing was observed at strike prices 10,350 and 10,500 while Call unwinding was seen at all immediate strike prices, which is providing room for further upward move, said Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal Securities. Maximum Put open interest stood at strike price 10,500 followed by 10,400 while maximum Call OI was at 10,700 followed by 10,600. The options band suggests an immediate trading range between 10,480 and 10,700 levels, Taparia said. 

Key Q4 earnings today

Bharat Financial Inclusion, Cholamandalam Finance, Delta Corp, GNFC, Bharati Infratel, LIC Housing Finance, Reliance Infra and Reliance Naval are scheduled to announce their quarterly numbers during the day.

North Korea said on Saturday it was suspending nuclear and missile tests and scrapping its nuclear test site, and instead pursuing economic growth and peace. 

Trump slams Opec for inflating crude prices

In a tweet, the US President said, “Looks like Opec is at it again. With record amounts of oil all over the place, including the fully loaded ships at sea. Oil prices are artificially very high! No good and will not be accepted!" 

FPI outflows in April at Rs 8,000 crore

Foreign investors have pulled out nearly Rs 8,000 crore from the Indian capital markets so far this month due to 'considerable' volatility in global markets on account of the ongoing trade negotiations and firming up of bond yields. This comes following an inflow of Rs 11,654 crore in equities last month and an outflow of over Rs 9,000 crore from the debt markets. 

DIIs buy Rs 111 cr worth of equities

Foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) sold Rs 21 crore worth of domestic stocks on Friday, provisional data available with BSE suggested. DIIs were net buyers to the tune of Rs 111 crore, data suggested. 

Rupee drops to lowest in 13 months

Bonds and the rupee crashed on Friday as the minutes of the Monetary Policy Committee meeting quoted a deputy governor that signalled there might be a tightening of rates in June if commodity prices rally upset inflation calculations. The rupee breached the crucial 66 level, extending losses against the dollar amid a bout of overseas fund outflows. This week, the local unit lost 1.36 per cent to close at 66.11 a dollar Friday, its weakest in 13 months.

अच्छे नतीजों से इन 5 स्टॉक्स पर बढ़ा एक्सपर्ट्स का भरोसा, 28% तक दे सकते हैं रिटर्न

The Tata Group firm has reported consolidated profit at Rs 6,904 crore for the quarter ended March 2018, registering a 5.7 percent growth compared to Rs 6,531 crore in previous quarter and 4.5 percent growth over year-ago period.

Strong revenue growth and higher other income (up 13.7 percent QoQ) boosted profitability.

The Reuters poll of analysts had estimated profit at Rs 6,811.8 crore for the quarter.


Consolidated revenue from operations for the quarter grew by 3.8 percent (up 8.2 percent YoY) to Rs 32,075 crore on sequential basis, which was ahead of Reuters poll of Rs 31,669.2 crore.

Revenue for the quarter ended December 2017 was Rs 30,904 crore.

Revenue in dollar terms increased 3.9 percent, the highest growth in last 14 quarters, to USD 4,972 million in Q4FY18, which was far ahead of analyst estimates. Dollar revenue growth on year-on-year basis was in double digit at 11.68 percent.

"Dollar revenue growth was above our 2.4 percent QoQ growth and USD 4,901.9 million estimate. The dollar revenue growth was supported by strong cross currency tailwind (1.9 percent in our view)," Research said.

These 9 stocks are low beta and have high profitability

Expect markets to be rangebound with heightened volatility in the near term, says Harendra Kumar of Elara Equities.

Our analysis shows that companies which have high profitability, high asset efficiency, and are low beta have outperformed over the last 3 months, Harendra Kumar, Managing Director-Institutional Equities at Elara Equities, said in an exclusive interview with Moneycontrol’s Kshitij Anand.
Q: Do you think the recent development on the geopolitical front (military action by the US on Syria) could cap upside for equity investors across the globe?
A: Geopolitics has added to the already heady mix of macro headwinds-elevated concerns around increasing bond yields; fluid domestic political and fiscal policy environment; fear of a trade war between US and China; rising crude oil prices - facing the market.
This will add to market volatility. We expect markets to be range bound with heightened volatility, in the near term.
Q: Mutual Fund flows have slowed down considerably in the month of March thanks to global volatility. Do you think the reduction in DII flows would play in charting direction for our markets?
A: March saw a decline in DII flows after several months of strong flows. We believe the tax planning would have played a major part in the decline in net flows. We expect financialisation trend to continue and will be watching the flows over the coming months carefully
Q: Any stock/sector which you emerge as a dark horse in the year 2018 or FY19?
A: We expect metals and mining to outperform in FY'19 on the back of elevated commodity prices, high domestic demand and operating leverage.
Q: There were many quality stocks which corrected in the last 2-3 months thanks to global volatility. Any top contrarian stocks which investors can buy at current levels and why?
A: Our analysis shows that companies which have high profitability, high asset efficiency, and low beta have outperformed over the last 3 months.
Given the prevailing market conditions, we expect the same parameters to work over the near term. We like Indraprastha Gas, Ashok Leyland, TVS Motor, Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals, Eicher Motors, Nestle India, Crisil, Amaraja Battery and Hindustan Unilever.
Q: Do you think March quarter earnings could be as strong as consensus estimates? What are your estimates for FY19?
A: March quarter earnings could be under-pressure, primarily due to higher provisioning that we are expecting from banks. We expect FY19 earnings to grow ~18-20 percent.
Q: Most foreign brokerage firms such as Citigroup and CLSA have trimmed their estimates for Sensex/Nifty for 2018. Have your also trimmed your Sensex or Nifty target for December-end?
A: We have December target of 11,400 on the Nifty. We will look at Q4 earnings closely before we take a call on revisions to our target.
Q: What is your assessment of the banking situation? It looks like new skeletons are coming out of the closet every day. Do you see PSU banks a potential long-term buy at current levels or investors should stick to private sector banks and NBFCs?
A: PSBs would witness issues on-balance-sheet growth, NPL provisioning, and core capital fronts. Only BOB and SBI would be relatively better off due to their focus on retail credit, higher provision cover and relatively better standing on core capital (CET I).
Among PSBs, better places would be BOB & SBI. Private banks (particularly retail focused ones) would post higher balance-sheet growth, legacy issues are less or negligible and profit growth would be much higher.
Private banks with corporate exposures would underperform. Apart from NCLT I & II lists, banks themselves are aggressively approaching NCLT/IBC for resolution of cases, which would be a drag for time being. Among private banks, we prefer IIB and CUBK.
On NBFCs, we recommend to go selective, given the current valuations. We prefer PNB housing among HFCs, JM as a diversified play and Shriram transport finance on vehicle financing side.
Q: The crude price shock has taken equity markets by a surprise. Do you think if the crude stays above USD 71/bbl it would spell trouble for the economy as well as OMCs?
A: If crude stay above USD 71/bbl, it will be negative for inflation outlook with associated impact on the fiscal situation. Industries like paints may have a negative impact on earnings outlook.
In rising crude oil scenario, the governments would like to cushion retail customers through reduction of excise duty, but at the same time, it would like OMCs to absorb the impact through lower margins or delay in price hikes.
OMCs might additionally be impacted due to higher dependence on government subsidies, which if delayed will lead higher interest expenses. However, we expect crude prices to cool down and stay within USD 60-70/bbl range.
Q: Midcaps are trading over 70 percent premium (in terms of PE) to Nifty. Do you think this premium could actually narrow down in 2018 and possibly in 2019?
A: We see a risk to midcap premiums over the next year. Within midcap, we like low leverage midcaps stocks with earning visibility for the next two years; high quality – efficient management, top brands, industry leadership, first mover advantage; and those with location advantages (eg. like in cement).
Q: Any secular story which you are tracking? Are there any businesses, which are trading at a fair price – Great business at a good price which is seldom seen?
A: Rural consumption and public capex are the two themes that we like. Quality companies associated with these themes are likely to outperform.
Coming to businesses, our analysis shows that the value markets ascribe to long-term earnings (beyond the next 2 years) is at its highest levels. At the same time, we are seeing near-term earnings (next two years) visibility expanding for the market overall, and in most sectors.
Given this, businesses with high near-term visibility that derive more value from near-term earnings will be attractive. Energy, Utilites and IT are spaces where one could focus.

Don't miss out! Top 10 growth stocks

Equity investors are always on a look out of stocks which offers growth and at the same time available at reasonable valuations which makes them attractive ‘buy on dips’ stock.

Morgan Stanley in its report released earlier in the month of April handpicked over 10 stocks which are available at reasonable valuations. For computing these stocks, the global investment bank filtered stocks using parameters such as beta, future growth rate, and Return on capital employed.

Most of the stocks such as Asian Paints, Cadila Healthcare, BPCL, Havells India etc. have a beta less than 1 which in other words mean that these stocks are less volatile and will not fall/rise with the same magnitude compared to market movement.
“Low beta stocks indicates less volatility in price movement and simultaneously, and if the ROCE is rising investor can be pretty sure that the money invested in the company is being used efficiently, leading to higher profits,” D K Aggarwal, Chairman, and MD, SMC Investments and Advisors Ltd told IdealStock.
However, these may not be the only indicators of the company's prospects. The growth of the industry the company operates in and investment in productive capacities also merit close scrutiny.
“Besides ROCE and Beta, investors should look price-to-book value (P/BV) ratio, debt-to-equity ratio and price/earnings growth ratio to name a few. The P/BV ratio values shares of companies with large tangible assets on their balance sheets,” said Aggarwal.
Apart from these ration investors could also look at a debt-to-equity ratio which shows how much debt the company has on its books.
The PEG ratio which is price earnings to growth will help investors to know the relationship between the price of a stock, earnings per share (EPS) and the company's growth, suggest experts.We have collated a list of top 10 high growth stocks which are available at reasonable valuations based on a report from Morgan Stanley:
Analyst: D K Aggarwal, Chairman, and MD, SMC Investments and Advisors Ltd
Cadila Healthcare Limited
The management expects that the fourth quarter would see around 10-12 new product launches in the US and this would continue for the upcoming quarters. The company expects, the share of US to rise in overall revenue - from a roughly 50 percent now to 55 percent in FY19 and the US would contribute around 60 percent of its revenues by FY20.
The management expects that US business to witness price erosion in the range 10-12 percent in FY2018E and 8-10 percent in FY2019E. It has guided for overall US revenue (reported) growth in FY19E, despite high base due to gLialda sales in 180?days exclusivity in FY2018E.
The company has planned a capex of Rs 1000 crore for FY2019. Research & Development (R&D) expenses will remain in the range of 7-8 percent of sales over next two years.
Havells India Limited:
The company has been continuously growing in each business parameter and it is expected that it would be directly benefitted by the Government initiatives such as “Housing and power for all”.
It is best placed to attain scale across businesses with its new SBU (Strategic Business Unit) structure and focused product-wise branding strategy.
It has pioneered the concept of the exclusive brand showroom in the electrical industry with ‘Havells Galaxy’. It became the first FMEG Company to offer doorstep service via its initiative ‘Havells Connect’.
Indraprastha Gas limited:
The company expects its sales volume to industrial and commercial clients rise 20 percent in 2018-19, after experiencing a similar gain last fiscal year, following a ban on using polluting pet coke and fuel oil in the National Capital Region on rising green concerns.
It plans to use the restrictions on polluting fuel as an opportunity to add as many as 2,000 industrial and commercial customers in 2018-19 to its current base of 3,000. It is also planning to rapidly expand sales of compressed natural gas (CNG), used by cars and buses.
To tide over the scarcity of land in cities for setting up fuel stations, IGL has begun appointing dealers to set up CNG stations – so far the company owned and operated all its filling stations.
For its expansion, IGL is focusing on congested colonies, which had escaped attention earlier but are now being targeted with enhanced security features.
Mindtree Limited:
The Company’s overall strategy of achieving industry-leading growth through deep domain expertise in chosen verticals combined with technical depth, customized for clients remain the same.
An enviable client list and a fantastic leadership team are two clear advantage areas for Mindtree and plan to leverage them to engineer meaningful technology solutions to help businesses and societies flourish.
The company has positioned itself as a comprehensive solutions provider. As per management of the company it has the capability to create opportunities to cross-sell its R&D engineering services to its clients and also supplement its IT services capabilities.
Petronet LNG Limited:
As there is a shortage of natural gas supply, the company will get the benefit as the primary play on increasing usage of LNG. In the long term, we expect volumes to remain strong and contribute significantly going forward.
Dahej capacity expansion from 15.0 million tonne (mt) to 17.5 mt is expected by June 2019. The project is 70 percent complete. In addition to the on-going capex, the company has also decided to add one more tank at a cost of Rs 600 crore.
This would increase the operational flexibility for PLNG and allow it to operate the terminal at full capacity. Management expects FY19 capex at Rs 400 crore, mostly on Dahej expansion and some initial capex on new storage tanks at Dahej.
Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited:
The company has entered into newer geographies both domestically and globally, launched multiple channels, strengthened distribution, expanded the genres and widened its audience profile.
Moreover, the management focuses towards expansion and it is expected that market share would give strong growth to the company in coming years. Going forward, better content performance, increasing regional market share, tight cost control at the sales and distribution levels, a turnaround of the loss-making Zee Tamil, & TV and music businesses in FY19 may lead to superior margins.
JSW Steel Ltd:
Goldman Sachs maintains a buy call on JSW Steel and raised its target price to Rs342 from Rs 315 earlier. The medium-term fundamentals remain resilient, and the tariff barriers can impact steel margins, said the report.
Credit Suisse maintains a neutral rating on ITC with a target price of Rs 320. The budget is still relevant post-GST for ITC and the risk-reward favourable at the margin. The valuations for ITC attractive relative compared to its peers.
CLSA maintains buy on Infosys with a target price of Rs1340. The IT major reported results which were largely inline with revenues but ahead on margins. The FY19 revenue guidance is solid at 7-9 percent YoY in USD (6-8 percent in CC).
The guidance suggests growth acceleration and stable client relationships. Infosys should get back to catching up with peer growth rates soon. The stock offers the highest potential for a rerating in the sector.
Titan Company Ltd:
Titan’s stock has delivered immense value to investors over the last several years, and its ability to compound earnings at 23 percent p.a. over the past 10 years has been a key enabler in this regard, JM Financial said in a note.
“We believe that 20 percent revenue CAGR over FY18-23E should also support margin expansion that should ideally lead to an even higher rate of growth in profit over the same period (operating leverage), which would help sustain the stock’s premium valuation, in our view,” said the report.
Titan just announced an ‘extension’ of its target 20 percent-CAGR phase in its Jewellery business (2.5x increase in size in 5 years) to FY18-23E. It is important to note that the company has not delayed the time by which its Jewellery business will grow 2.5x vs FY17 level. Titan aims to compound jewellery revenue by 20 percent p.a. in the next five years as well, on FY18’s base.

The main Swedish exports to India are pharmaceuticals, paper and pulp products, chemicals, engineering products and telecom equipment, while the main items of Indian exports are chemical products, food products, and semi manufactured and manufactured goods.
Indian companies such as Aditya Birla Group, Wipro and Bharat Forge are among the other major investors in Sweden. According to rough estimates, the cumulative Indian investment in Sweden is in the range of USD 700-800 million.
