IT companies' Apr-Jun’22 earnings preview by Aditi Patil, Reasearch Associate, Prabhudas Lilladher.

- Cross currency headwinds of 100-200bps QoQ to impact USD revenue growth.

-Margins to decline ~100-200bps QoQ led by wage hikes, higher retention costs and increased travel costs.

-Key things to monitor for Q1FY23E – 1) impact of weak macro environment on deal pipeline & tech budgets and 2) commentary on hiring and attrition.

We estimate healthy revenue growth of 2.7-4.5% QoQ CC (avg: 3.4%) for Tier-1 and 2.5-5.8% QoQ CC (avg: 3.7%) for Tier-2. However, USD revenue growth will be lower due to cross currency headwinds of 100-200bps QoQ. We anticipate margins to decline by 100-200bps QoQ led by wage increments, higher retention costs, increased travel costs and drop in utilization levels. We expect healthy deal wins in Q1. Further management may reiterate strength in near term demand. We expect Infy and HCLT to maintain their revenue and margin guidance for FY23. Commentary on health of consumer facing verticals and reprioritization of client spends would be key points to monitor.

We shift from DCF based valuation to PE multiple based relative valuation and tune our target multiples factoring risk of slowdown in technology spends, given worsening global macro. We reduced our revenue estimates by 3-5% baking in moderation in IT demand. We prefer INFY & TCS among Tier 1 given strong growth momentum on a high base and best in class operating metrics. Among Tier-2 we prefer Coforge, Mindtree & LTI.

Indian metal stocks underperform Nifty by 12-34% in June quarter

Indian metal stocks have underperformed Nifty by 12-34% in June quarter (Q1) as metal prices fell sharply amid rising risk of global slowdown and imposition of steel export duty. Metal stocks have high correlation to consensus earnings trajectory, and global brokerage Jefferies believes that the earnings cycle is inflecting down.

“We cut FY23-24 EPS for JSTL/Hindalco/Tata Steel by 2-34% and are 10-31% below Street. We believe it's still early to turn constructive as PB valuations remain above historical troughs, earnings visibility is poor, and consensus downgrades will continue," Jefferies in a note stated.

Govt directs steel industry to draw time-bound action plan to lower CO2 emissions 

In line with the government's COP26 commitments, the Ministry of Steel has asked the stakeholders to develop a time-bound action plan to lower emissions in the steel industry.

According to a ministry document, the iron and steel industry globally accounts for around 8 per cent of total carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions on an annual basis, whereas in India, it contributes 12 per cent to the total CO2 emissions. Thus, the Indian steel industry needs to reduce its emissions substantially in view of the commitments made at the COP26 climate change conference. (PTI)

ICICI Securities on July auto volumes

Wholesale dispatches for June 2022 came in steady with most segments reporting neutral to positive MoM growth. CV space continues to witness secular MoM growth trend and outperformed the OEM pack with encouraging double digit recovery in the M&HCV segment. In the 2-W pack it was largely flat performance MoM with Bajaj Auto being an exception, with the company reporting ~27% MoM growth albeit on a low base (impacted by supply side issues). PV space also witnessed flat MoM performance with Tata Motors leading the pack. Tractor space reported muted prints i.e. double digit YoY decline amid wheat export ban imposed around May 2022 end and channel stuffing in previous months.

In the CV segment, market leader Tata Motors (TML) reported volumes of 37,265 units, up 13.6% MoM. Ashok Leyland posted 9.5% growth to 14,531 units while VECV volumes rose 11.9% to 6,307 units. With private and public capex on the anvil, we expect CV sales volume to witness a thriving rally going forward. In the 3-W space, sales volume was a mixed bag but MoM performance was led by exports with domestic witnessing a decline. In the tractor space, M&M's tractor sales dipped 13.2% YoY to 41,848 units, with Escort’s witnessing a decline of 19.8% to 10,051 units.

Eknath Shinde government wins floor test in Maharashtra Assembly, gets support of 164 MLAs so far

04 Jul 2022, 11:40:29 AM IST

HDFC Bank view:  Gaurav Jani, research analyst at Prabhudas Lilladher

--Loan growth was a bit soft at 1.9% QoQ to Rs13.95trn. While YoY growth may not be as relevant it was 21.5%.

-- Retail growth was healthy at 5.0% QoQ/21.5% YoY. Corporate advances were flat QoQ while CRB grew by 3% QoQ/29% YoY.

--Deposit growth was 2.9% and 19.3% YoY to Rs16.1trn. CASA growth was 2.2% QoQ and 20% YoY. CASA Ratio declined 216bps QoQ.

-- LDR also slightly reduced QoQ from 87.8% to 86.9%

Our view

--While Q1 is generally weak for the lending space, HDFC bank QoQ growth was a tad softer leading to lower LDR which could be a drag on NIM.

--However, retail share improved QoQ from 38.5% to 40% which could may NIM.

--This also suggests that in Q4FY22 some part of current quarter growth was up-fronted which would have been lower yielding.

--We had an BUY rating on the stock with a TP of Rs.1740 (3.2x FY24 ABV). At CMP stock is trading at 2.8x/2.5x FY23E/FY24E.

ICICI Securities view on Reliance Industries

Government of India has imposed additional excise duty of  13/litre on diesel exports. Also, excise duty on petrol and ATF exports was raised by of | 6/litre

· RIL has total refining capacity of 68 MMTPA and one of the refineries is export focused

· Product cracks of diesel, petrol and ATF continue to trade at elevated levels. While the company is expected to report a sharp surge in profit in Q1FY23E, excise duty on product exports is likely to limit gains in the refining segment, going ahead, as per our understanding

· The government will review the excise duty for recalibration every 15 days. The strategy of the company regarding export volume and global refining scenario will be the key monitorable in the near term

Key triggers for future price performance

· Increment value accretion from the ‘digital ecosystem’ that will be captured at the Jio Platforms (JPL) level

· Steady FCF generation in the retail segment would enable the company to maintain debt at lower levels and improve its ability to invest in future inorganic opportunities

· Steady cash flow in O2C segment is expected to continue amid favourable global scenario and will enable RIL to invest in new energy verticals

Gold prices rise to highest level in 2 months

Gold prices today extended gains in India, with the yellow metal rising to 2-month highs. On MCX, gold futures were up 0.4% to 52,117 per 10 gram. On Friday, gold prices in India had surged nearly 3% or 1,500 per 10 gram after government in a sudden move hiked import duty on the precious metal. 

04 Jul 2022, 09:57:42 AM IST

Market View: Sameet Chavan, chief analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel One

On Friday, markets felt some tremors initially from the major global peers; but it has managed to withstand it successfully and in fact, due to a smart V-shaped recovery in the latter half, the Nifty managed to reclaim 15700 with some authority.

In our previous intra-week commentary, we had mentioned how 15700 is to be considered a sacrosanct level. On Friday, we did see this key point getting thrashed in the initial trades and due to a massive sell-off in a few heavyweights (mainly RELIANCE), we saw Nifty hastening towards 15500 at one point. But bulls had other plans this time as they not only defended this level but went on to regain strength in the latter half to confirm a weekly close above 15700. So, for this week, 15700 followed by 15500 is to be seen as an immediate as well as a strong support zone. On the flip side, the sturdy wall remains around 15900 – 16000 and it’s a daunting task going past this for the bulls. Also one of the observations in our previous weekly commentary was the Quarterly close of Nifty above ‘5-EMA’ i.e. 16000 – 16100 would be crucial for our markets. Although the quarterly close panned out slightly lower, it would be a pragmatic ploy to give some buffer in such kind of challenging environment.

We continue to remain hopeful and if there is no aberration on the global front, we will not be surprised to see the Nifty crossing 15900 – 16000 this week itself. For this, banking certainly needs to step forward and it has already given some hints in the last couple of sessions. Also, the broader market did extremely well towards the fag end of the week, which again is an encouraging sign for the market.

U.S. manufacturing activity slowed more than expected in June, with a measure of new orders contracting for the first time in two years, signs that the economy was cooling amid aggressive monetary policy tightening by the Federal Reserve.

The ISM survey's index of national factory activity dropped to 53.0 last month, the lowest reading since June 2020, when the sector was rebounding from a COVID-19 slump. That followed a reading of 56.1 in May. The index would need to decline to 43.1 to signal a recession.
