Titan Company:

Earlier this month, analysts Shirish Pardeshi of Centrum said, "Titan’s Q1FY23 business update points out that company has witnessed near normal quarter reporting revenue growth of 205% in India driven by (a) low base, (b) wedding season, (c) stable gold prices, and (d) network expansion. Interestingly jewelry sales grew 207% YoY, 3-year CAGR augmented to 23% in Q1 (up from 15% in Q4FY22). Management said, the studded share was back to pre–Covid levels and improved YoY. Titan added 120 stores across divisions/ formats in Q1, taking store tally to 2160 stores in India. Caratlane (72.3% sub) reported the highest revenues growing at 207%. We believe deferred weddings due to Omicron wave inQ4 pushed pent-up demand coupled with festival demand drove strong footfalls. We remain positive on growth prospects for Titan and retain Buy with DCF-based TP Rs2,817 (implying 69.5x FY24E EPS)."

Tata Motors: 

Shashank Kanodia and Raghvendra Goyal analysts at ICICI Direct said. "TML’s stock price has been flattish over past 5 years ( 445 levels in July 2017), underperforming the broader Nifty Auto index," adding, "We retain BUY on positive demand outlook, positive FCF targets for FY23E, strong order book and intent to be net debt free (automotive) by FY24E." Further, they said, "We now value TML at 530 on SOTP basis (10x, 3x FY24E EV/EBITDA on India, JLR; 158 value to Indian EV business; previous TP 500)."

Karur Vysya Bank:

Yuvraj Choudhary and Sagar Rungta analysts at Anand Rathi said, "KVB’s Q1 FY23 profitability improved, its RoA coming at 1.09% (up 27bps y/y) on higher margins and moderate provisions (below 1%). Key positives for the quarter were 1) sharp decline in slippages, 2) a pick-up in credit growth (many-year high), 3) better margins, and 4) strong liquidity and capitalisation. With credit growth expected to be in mid-teens and moderating credit costs, earnings would improve. We maintain our Buy rating, with a TP of Rs70, valuing the stock at 0.7x P/ABV on the FY24e book."

Canara Bank:

Analysts Sameer Bhise, Akshay Jain, and Anuj Narula at JM Financial said, "We expect CBK’s earnings recovery to be driven by a) credit cost normalisation (1.3% by FY24E), b) improvement in margins and c) sustained growth momentum. We build in gradual improvement of ROA to 0.66%/0.72% by FY23E/24E. Maintain BUY with a TP of 265 (valuing core bank at 0.7x FY24E adj. BVPS)."
