The themes as housing and corporate capex cycle should play out as India's capex cycle has turned around from its FY20 bottom and is expected to continue for at least five years more. Ambuja Cements , Axis Bank, JSW Energy, Larsen & Toubro (L&T) , Macrotech Developers are themes on Capex cycle.

Among other themes, government's manufacturing push should help Amber Enterprises, SOE reforms should help State Bank Of India  as financialisation of savings should help Axis Bank and State Bank of India. The themes that should benefit from rising penetration include Max Healthcare and Zomato, while key consumer  and bottom-of-pyramid ideas as per Jefferies include Bharti Airtel and  TVS Motor.

For Amber Enterprises having core competency in Air Conditioning and diversification into components. the support from the PLI scheme should help Amber  see earnings grow at compounding rate of 36%  over FY24-30.

For Ambuja Cements, Jefferies expects the capex upcycle driving  cement demand and Ambuja clocking  19% ebitda CAGR (compound annual growth rate). Ambuja is also expected to nearly double its capacity supported by inorganic growth, cutting costs and investing in green power.

Ebitda stands for earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation

For Axis Bank, Jefferies expects 17% loan and 18% earnings CAGR over FY24-29 . It expects  Axis Bank leverage on improvement in deposit franchise, ramping up of digital and lending platforms and  ramp-up of its subsidiaries.

For Bharti Airtel Jefferies expects robust Ebitda growth  of 13% in India CAGR, helped by increase in ARPUs even faster than the nominal GDP and  combined with moderation of  investment (Capex), which would propel Bharti's Free cash flow to equity expand at a 21% CAGR during FY24–30 and raise the company's ROCE to cross 25%.

JSW Energy is expected to see a three fold increase in in power capacity to 20GW by FY30.  JSW Energy should see renewable share rising to 80% plus from 50% helping  driving significant upsides for JSW Energy over next 5-years.

Larsen & Toubro or L&T being the largest Indian contractor is pegged by Jefferies to achieve 15%+ revenue CAGR over FY23-30. This for L&T is likely to be helped by broad recovery in India capex cycle, market share gains and execution ramp up. Alongside, for L&T the operating leverage should drive margin expansion and help the stock see good gains and even a rerating.

Macrotech Developers should benefit from the strong housing cycle which will help Macrotech clock 17.5% CAGR pre-sales growth as per Jefferies.

For Max Healthcare the benefits are expected as quality healthcare remains underpenetrated and doubling of Max's bed capacity by FY30 should help Max see 17% revenue and 20% ebitda CAGR over next 5 years as per Jefferies.

For State bank of India loan growth is expected at 13% driven by retail, SME & corporate. This works in tandem with ROA growth above 1% as the cost-to-income ratio drops to propel earnings growth of 18% for SBI as per Jefferies. Certain rerating may also be prompted by better investor perception for SBI.

TVS Motors remains as a major gainer from the revival of the two-wheeler market in India. TVS shift to electric two wheelers should propel 12% volume and 26% EPS growth annually, resulting in robust stock returns.

For Zomato, it is the  low penetration levels that offer a good opportunity for growth for both food delivery and quick commerce. Zomato's net profit is expected to rise 20 times over FY24-30, driving target  of Rs400, offering 150% plus returns for the stock as per Jefferies.
