    Chemplast Sanmar IPO aggressively priced at P/E ratio of more than 300 times

    Chemplast Sanmar is attempting to re-list on the exchanges after a period of 9 years. It had earlier opted for voluntary delisting in June 2012 at a market cap of around Rs. 1,190 crore. The post-issue implied market cap is 7.5x higher than the mcap at delisting. At the higher end of the price band, Chemplast Sanmar is priced at a P/E 20.85 times FY21 earnings per share (on a post-issue) fully diluted basis. While this appears reasonable as compared to other listed peers such as PI Industries (58.9 times), SRF (24.7 times), Navin Fluorine (73.8 times), Chemplast had seen super-normal profits in the previous year, which may not be sustainable. In case we consider FY20 earnings, then the IPO is aggressively priced at a P/E ratio of more than 300 times. SEBI-registered investment advisor INDmoney said in a report

    Brokerage view on PI Industries

    Rating: Buy, CMP: Rs.3,140, Target Price: Rs.3,640

    Standalone revenue grew 14.3%YoY to Rs. 1,107cr, owing to strong volumes resulting in solid export growth (+31.0% YoY), while domestic remained subdued hit by pandemic and delayed monsoon. EBITDA rose 12.5% YoY despite margin contraction of 40bps YoY to 22.1% with rising overheads due to pandemic-related spends. Strong cash flows and balance sheet position, healthy order book, new launches, commercialization, and continued R&D investments should drive sustainable growth. Hence, we reiterate our BUY rating on the stock with a revised TP of Rs. 3,640 based on 45x FY23E adj. EPS. Geojit Financial Services

    4.40-74.50 remains a crucial resistance for USD-INR

    Back home, USDINR took a sharp reversal in NDF from 74.26 to testing an important resistance of 74.50 levels. Risk aversion due to the double whammy of rising covid cases and new restrictions in China has been taking emerging markets on a toll. However, with IPO flows remaining in full swing and oil prices tanking below $70 could provide rupee some support. Overall, for USDINR pair 74.40-74.50 remains a crucial resistance to determine the way forward for the rupee. Any sustainable move above 74.50 levels can push the rupee towards the 74.80-74.90 zone in coming days. As the primary trend for rupee is on a weaker side considering the broad dollar strength, it is good to remain buyer on every dip and one can go slow in selling. Amit Pabari, MD, CR Forex Advisors

    Nifty is consolidating in 16300-16150 range

    After a sharp rally last week, the Nifty is consolidating in the range of 16300-16150 level. However, the larger breakout continuation texture is still on the positive side and could continue in the short run. For the day traders, the 16180/16150 level would be strong support, and as long as it's trading above the same the uptrend is intact. On the other hand, the 16300 levels would be the immediate hurdle for Nifty and above the same, the continuation formation is likely to continue up to 16350-16375 levels. Shrikant Chouhan, Executive Vice President, Equity Technical Research at Kotak Securities
