    This large-cap FMCG stock fell 20% when Sensex surged 13%, brokerages say buy now; check target price

    When benchmark index S&P BSE Sensex was struggling with extreme volatility, Hindustan Unilever (HUL) shares were seen surging as much as 36%. The rally in the FMCG giant was unlike anything that the domestic equity benchmarks were witnessing back in March and April this year as investors feared the spread of the novel coronavirus. However, the story has changed significantly since then. As Sensex staged a comeback, gaining 13% between April and June, HUL stocks tanked close to 20%. Despite this, brokerage firms are not giving up on this large-cap FMCG stock which many term as a play on India’s growth story. Currently HUL shares are trading at a price of Rs 2,115 per share.

    Outlook on the IT sector for the next few months

    The Indian IT sector is likely to face some near term headwinds due to likely cut back in discretionary spending by clients and delay in ramp up of new projects. Clients are also likely to go back to the drawing board and reprioritize their IT spending which may lead to some delay in decisions. Having said that, we believe that there is an increased likelihood of faster adoption of digital technologies despite the near term challenges which bodes well for the sector in the medium to long term. Post the recent outperformance relative to the Nifty, we are currently neutral on the sector: Jyoti Roy, DVP Equity Strategist, Angel Broking Ltd

    IT services demand likely to remain tepid in CY20 due to compressed global business activity

    IT services demand is likely to remain tepid in CY20 due to compressed global business activity. We expect demand to bounce back in CY21 as major global economies return to normalcy. In the post pandemic world, global enterprises are likely to accelerate their digital transformation journey in cloud and data analytics services. Few Indian IT companies have planned to aggressively incorporate 'Work from Home' as a permanent feature in their business model. We also believe vendor consolidation at customers end is strategic opportunity for Indian IT players: Suyog Kulkarni, Senior Analyst- IT services, Media and Internet

    We expect the investor activity to be subdued in 2020

    The decline in PE investments in real estate had started as visible in 2019 when it fell by 23% YoY to $6.8 billion. We are operating in uncertain times. Having enforced one of the most stringent lockdown measures globally, 2020 would be a challenging year for Indian businesses. The recall of undeployed capital by sponsors, the emergence of attractive opportunities globally, increase in risk premiums, contraction in Indian GDP and COVID-19 related uncertainties would cast its shadow on investor sentiments and we expect the investor activity to be subdued in 2020. The warehousing segments would be the fastest to recover followed by office. With pay cuts and job losses becoming pervasive, the residential and retail segments would have to chart an arduous journey towards recover: Shishir Baijal, Chairman & Managing Director, Knight Frank India

    Brokerage view on Hindustan Unilever

    Despite being the largest consumer company in India, its 10-year sales/EBITDA/PAT growth has been healthy at 8.1%/13.3%/12.4% CAGR. Earnings growth has consistently gained momentum in recent years, which is particularly impressive given the weak mid-single earnings growth posted by (much smaller) peers in recent years. HUVR has delivered EBITDA/PAT CAGR of 13%/13.1% in the last five years, while both EBITDA/PAT have reported ~17% CAGR in the last three years ending FY20: Motilal Oswal

    Milk consumption drops 30% amid lockdown; here’s how dairy players will cope up with the loss

As hotels, restaurants, sweet marts and the unorganised tea stalls remained shut across the nation, the milk consumption fell by 25-30% during April and May 2020, a CARE Ratings report said. While some of this consumption fall was cushioned by an increased demand in households, dairy players also have some tricks up their sleeves to survive the pandemic.

    Buy HDFC | Target price: Rs 2,166 ~ Geojit Financial Services

    HDFC’s AUM grew by 2.3% QoQ and by 12% YoY in Q4 FY20. Individual loans, grew at 18% CAGR and consolidated PAT at 21% CAGR over the last 5 years. Net Interest Margin improved from 3.3% to 3.4% over last quarter and PAT grew by 3.5% in Q4 FY20 from Q3 FY20. Capital adequacy ratio has declined from 19.2% to 17.7% due to higher risk perceived in assets amidst the pandemic, but still remains above the regulatory level of 15%. Government support towards housing has tremendously helped in improving the affordability to the best levels due to rising annual income and relatively stable housing prices. Mortgage market in India is still at its infant stage with penetration of 10% in  nominal GDP, implying huge growth potential over long term aided by fiscal incentives & Interest subvention scheme. We have a BUY rating on the stock with a target price of Rs2,166 based on SOTP which on a consolidated basis is 3.8x BVPS on FY22E.

    Buy Vedanta | Target price: Rs 127 ~ Emkay Global

    Vedanta reported strong performance, driven by Aluminum and Zinc division. However, weakness in the oil & gas and power business dented an otherwise strong quarter amid concerns about Covid-19. Aluminum business continued uninterrupted during lockdown. We revise FY21/22/23 EBITDA -5%/4%/3% and reduce net debt by 9%/8%/13% due to lower capex and better commodities outlook.  With recovery in major commodities since April, we expect earnings to improve. Maintain Buy with a revised TP of Rs127 (Rs112 earlier) with OW in EAP.~ Emkay Global

    Buy Gujarat Pipavav Port | Fair Value: Rs 106 ~ Kotak Securities

    GPPV reported in-line revenues and better-than-expected margin on (1) better revenue mix both in terms of cargo and potentially export-import balance and (2) cost control. Support of Maersk’s volumes, superior double-stacking offering and changing customer preference towards rail bode well for GPPV’s volumes in a tough FY2021 for the sector. We reduce EBITDA estimates for FY2021 by 13% on account of Covid-19 disruption and lower fair value to Rs106 from Rs117. Maintain BUY.

    Focus will be on the FOMC tonight

    Focus will be on the FOMC tonight. Investors will look for subtle signs from the policy statement and chairman Powell's speech on whether there has been any change in Fed members' expectations regarding the pace of recovery. This will influence expectations on how long the rates are likely to stay at close to zero. If investors get a sense that the Fed is sounding a tad more upbeat, it would be negative for risk sentiment and financial assets. However, the base case is that the Fed would continue to sound dovish and would prefer to wait for a few more data points to be convinced that the economic recovery is indeed underway. Any statement on yield curve control will also be closely followed: Abhishek Goenka, Founder and CEO, IFA Global
