BNP Paribas India views on Mahindra & Mahindra: Strong visibility on sales growth and margin expansion; BUY

Kumar Rakesh, Analyst - IT & Auto of BNP Paribas views on M&M: Strong visibility on sales growth and margin expansion; BUY

We raise our FY24-26E EPS by 1-8% to bake in 1QFY24 results and nudge our TP up by 0.5%. Maintain BUY

· New launches and capacity expansion give comfort on growth:

MM’s 1QFY24 revenue and margins beat BNPPe and Bloomberg consensus estimates (BBGe). MM’s commitment to capacity expansion for SUVs is on track, with semiconductor shortages no longer being a material headwind. MM is gaining market share in both SUVs and tractors and is confident of further gains in FY24 through product launches. MM’s new monthly SUV bookings (48k) remain way ahead of its billings (33k) but are in line with the target capacity (49k) by end-4QFY24.

· 1QFY24: Comfortable beat on revenue and EBITDA margin

Revenue (INR240b) beat BNPPe/BBGe by 11.5%/1.7% and EBITDA margin (13.4%, +105bp q-q, 14.6% post accounting change) beat by 81bp/30bp. PAT beat BNPPe/BBGe on higher other income.

· 1Q highlights: Profitability, share gains and new launches

Automotive: Open bookings were 281K (-4% q-q), with cancellations steady below 8% of bookings. Disruption in supplies of engine related parts and semiconductors hit 1Q volumes by 5k. BEV model launch plan: FY25: 1, FY26: 3, FY27: 1. Gained 4.7% q-q market share in LCVs. The Temasek investment in MEAL is more strategic than financial.

Sensex Today: Mint Mark to Market: Aditya Birla Fashion’s Q1 is forgettable, and its troubles are far from over

Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Ltd’s investors have many worries. To begin with, June quarter (Q1FY24) revenue performance is disappointing. Consolidated revenues increased by 11% year-on-year to almost Rs3200 crore. Here, the Pantaloons segment, which contributed 32% of the company’s consolidated revenue in Q1, put up a weak show with just 1% growth. This is despite Pantaloons’ retail network increasing by 17.5%. In comparison, the Madura segment fared better.

On a like-to-like basis, Pantaloons and Lifestyle brands (part of the Madura segment) growth fell by 8% and 3%, respectively. This implies that revenue growth was driven primarily by network expansion and new businesses (such as Reebok and TMRW), point out analysts from Kotak Institutional Equities. (Read More)

InCred Equities on Bharat Dynamics

ADD | TP: Rs1,300

1QFY24 Results | Challenging quarter as supply chain issues persist

1. Revenue (Rs2.9bn), declined 57% yoy, a significant setback - 63% below InCred/Bloomberg estimates. BDL reported an EBITDA loss of Rs327m, primarily influenced by increased fixed expenses during the quarter with poor execution. However, the impact of the EBITDA loss was partially mitigated by higher interest income, resulting in a PAT of 418m.

2. Order book remains strong (Rs202bn, ~8.2x FY23 Sales), but BDL will need to improve its execution in order to meet its financial targets for FY24F.

3. Consensus estimates factored in strong performance in FY24F, the miss in execution could lead to downward revision of ~10-15% in Bloomberg consensus estimates. Delay and uncertainty in execution is a downside risk to our estimate.

LKP Securities' views on Q1 FY24 Result Update: State Bank of India (SBIN) has delivered a stable result on the operating and assets quality front. It’s reported GNPA (2.76% v/s 2.78% in 4QFY23) and NNPA (0.71% v/s 0.67% in 4QFY23) holds steady with stable PCR (incl. AUCA) of 92%. Furthermore, SMA1/2 (33bps v/s 8bps) increased sequentially. The bank has witnessed better-than-expected advance growth (15% YoY & 1.1% QoQ) led by growth across segments and steady deposit base (12% YoY & 2.4% QoQ) sequentially with better liquidity position. Moreover, the bank has reported the highest ever quarterly PAT of 169bn (v/s 166bn in 4QFY23) on the back of stable NII (Domestic NIMs: 3.47%) and lower loan provision (credit cost: 32bps). The 1QFY24 calculated ROA and ROE stood at 1.22% and 19.6% respectively; surpassing the ROE target of 15%. The bank has established total standard asset and contingent provision of ~ 350bn (108bps of net advances) as on 1QFY24. With improving operating environment, ample contingent buffer (against ECL provisions) and strong growth outlook, we believe the annual ROE target of 15% is achievable in FY24E/25E. Therefore, we recommend BUY with target price of 743.

Sensex Today Live: Geojit Financial views on today's market: India has the potential to deliver superior returns in the long run

Dr V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services: A significant trend from Q1 results released till now is that there is impressive growth in corporate earnings but bulk of this profit growth has come from a few companies in banking and finance, oil refining and automobiles. Going forward, banking and finance and automobiles will continue to do well but many other segments are struggling. Capital goods appear to be on strong wicket and has the potential to deliver market beating returns for many quarters more.

Cues from the mother market US are favourable; particularly the sharp 14bp dip in the US 10-year bond yield last Friday can once again favour renewed FPI buying. Latest data from the U S indicate a slight cooling of the economy but the labour market continues to be strong. Markets will be keenly watching the July CPI print for clues on the Fed decision in August.

Indian market valuation is likely to remain elevated compared to peers. In spite of this India has the potential to deliver superior returns in the long run.
