The short term trend has definitely been disrupted: Manish Hathiramani
"The markets broke 17600 and as expected saw a sharp move southward! 17200 is a support for the market and we came close to it and bounced thereafter. The short term trend has definitely been disrupted. If we continue this momentum, we can slide further to 16850. The upside is now capped at 18150-18200 and until that is not crossed, we will be in a negative trend."

Markets have entered into consolidation phase: ICICI Securities
"With the recent correction, markets have entered into consolidation phase where stock specific volatility can be utilized to form the equity portfolios. The stretched valuation segments are witnessing profit booking and money is flowing into value segments where earnings have started to grow after several earnings of stagnation.
Commodity prices in the international markets have started to cool off with HR Steel prices in China having corrected by 18%, Aluminum by 17% and Iron ore prices by 64% due to sluggish real estate demand in China, and thus lower Chinese imports. This should help to recover the margin pressure in some commodity user companies in India like Consumer stocks, etc."

BUY Federal Bank: Angel One
Federal bank is one of India’s largest old generation private sector banks with total assets of ₹1.9 lakh crore with deposits of ₹1.56 lakh crore and a loan book of ₹1.2 lakh crore in F21. NPA’s have remained steady for the bank over the past few years with GNPA for Q3FY21 at 3.38% while NNPA ratio stood at 1.14%. PCR at the end of Q3FY21 stood at ~67% which we believe is adequate. Restructuring book is expected to be at ₹1,500-1,600 crore out of which ₹1,067 crore has already been restructured. This is against earlier expectations of total restructuring of ₹3,000-3,500 crore.

BUY Ashok Leyland: Angel One
Ashok Leyland Ltd (ALL) is one of the leading players in the Indian CV industry with a 32% market share in the MHCV segment. The company also has a strong presence in the fast-growing LCV segment. Demand for MHCV was adversely impacted post peaking out due to multiple factors including changes in axel norms, increase in prices due to implementation of BS 6 norms followed by a sharp drop in demand due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. While demand for the LCV segment has been growing smartly post the pandemic, demand for the MHCV segment has also started to recover over the past few months before the 2nd lockdown. We believe that the company is ideally placed to capture the growth revival in the CV segment and will be the biggest beneficiary of the Government’s voluntary scrappage policy and hence rate the stock a BUY.

BUY ISGEC Heavy Engineering: ICICI Securities
ISGEC Heavy Engineering (ISGEC) reported standalone revenue growth of 11% YoY to ₹11.5 billion in Q2FY22. Standalone EBIDTA margin shrunk by a significant 550bps YoY to 3.1% due to higher cost overheads. Management guided margins are likely to remain subdued till Q4FY22 as cost challenges persist. Due to increased commodity prices, management has been judicious in bidding for orders, and this led to a weak consolidated order intake of ₹8.5 billion during the quarter. However, the current consolidated order book is strong at ₹75 billion (1.7x TTM sales). Factoring-in near term margin stress, we marginally cut standalone earnings by 27% and 15% for FY22E and FY23E respectively. Given the healthy order book and a strong pipeline of orders, we maintain our BUY rating on the stock with a revised SoTP-based target price of ₹756 (earlier: ₹869).
Wood panel and tile makers steal the show in Q2
Home decor companies saw robust performance in the September quarter. Pent-up demand, aided by revival in the real estate sector, translated into double-digit volumes growth across product categories. However, this time around, wood panel makers and tile companies showcased better performance than pipe manufacturers, thus overtaking the latter on revenue growth and operating metrics.
"In Q2FY22, wood panel companies outperformed with revenue/Ebitda/profit after tax growth of 54%/60%/77% YoY led by strong volume growth across categories— plywood, laminates, MDF and particle board. Tiles too witnessed 35%/29%/38% YoY growth and healthy margins," analysts at Edelweiss Securities Ltd said in a report. Ebitda is short for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization.
BUY Nuvoco: ICICI Securities
Nuvoco Vistas Corporation (NUVOCO), led by Dr. Karsanbhai Patel Nirma group, has emerged as the fifth largest cement group in India and is amongst top-3 in East region with 23.8mnte capacity (as of September), post 8.3mnte acquisition of NU Vista (earlier Emami Cement) in July 2020. We believe cost synergies from the said acquisition, improved cost efficiencies, higher premiumisation coupled with scale benefits and operating leverage may drive ~30% ( ₹265/te) blended EBITDA/te rise to ₹1,180/te over FY21-FY24E. Valuation at 8.6xFY24E EV/E or $125/te adequately factors concerns around higher East region concentration, higher leverage and lower profitability vs peers, in our view. As NUVOCO narrows its EBITDA/te gap vs peers, the valuation gap may shrink. We initiate coverage on the stock with a BUY rating and target price of ₹645/share (11x Sep’23E EV/E). Key risks: lower demand/prices, and high concentration (~70%) in the East region.
