During the last three months, when the benchmark BSE Sensex corrected nearly 10% from its August record high, some large-cap stocks too slipped from their 52-week highs. A recent report has picked 10 of these large-caps which could be attractive bets for investors — delivering returns of up to 50% — and stocks like Reliance Industries, HDFC, Infosys, SBI, ICICI Bank and Maruti Suzuki are a part of the list.
In a recent report titled “India Strategy: Q2 FY18 earnings report”, brokerage firm Motilal Oswal has handpicked 10 large cap stocks which have slipped up to 27% from their 52-week highs and could deliver gains of up to 9-47%. These 10 large caps are Reliance Industries, HDFC, Infosys, State Bank of India, ICICI Bank, Maruti Suzuki, L&T, Axis Bank, Titan Company and Hindalco.
While the brokerage firm sees an upside of 31% in Reliance Industries, Hindalco could deliver up to 47% returns, the report showed. The report has also picked 10 mid-cap stocks which, despite a steep correction of up to 40% from their 52-week highs, could deliver returns of up to 92%. These 10 stocks include names like Marico, Shriram Transport Finance, RBL Bank, Exide Industries, Tata Chemicals, JSPL, Oberoi Realty, Mindtree, Crompton Greaves Consumer Electrical and TeamLease Services.
With respect to Nifty earnings, the brokerage firm said India Inc’s second-quarter earnings season was broadly in line with the brokerage’s expectations. “While the underlying earnings story is improving (better revenue growth trends, corporate banks’ asset quality turning around, etc.), new risks to earnings are also emerging (autos, NBFC). Consequently, the direction of the earnings revision is still trending down,” Motilal Oswal said. After the end of the second quarter earnings season, 73 companies saw earnings cut of over 3% while 38 companies saw upgrades of over 3%, the report said.
