    Brokerage view on PNB Housing Finance

    Over the past 18 months, the company has been facing tight liquidity, which has translated into flat AUM. Moreover, the moratorium number reported by the company is meaningfully higher than that reported by some large banks and HDFC. As a result, asset quality is likely to be a challenge in FY21. We forecast a jump in the GNPL ratio to 8% in FY21, driven by both retail and corporate slippages. As a result, our credit cost estimate is 70bp higher than earlier. Hence, we cut our FY21 EPS estimates drastically and our FY22 EPS estimates by ~30%. Maintain Neutral, with TP of INR190 (0.4x FY22 BVPS): Motilal Oswal Institutional Equities

    Brokerage view on Dalmia Bharat

    We trim Dalmia’s EBITDA est for FY21/22E by 3/3% resp, to factor in Covid impact on sales and expansion delays. We remain positive on the co, owing to its strong distribution strength across east/NE/south regions. Its lean operating costs also cushion the regional price volatility. Dalmia’s balance sheet should remain comfortable despite large expansions (net Debt/EBITDA under 2.5x). We maintain BUY with unchanged TP of Rs 930 (10x its FY22 EBITDA, in-line its five year mean). Our TP implies replacement cost of Rs 5.6bn/MT: HDFC Securities

    Brokerage view on Britannia Industries

    Biscuits market growth had started to show signs of growth in Jan-Feb months which got impacted due to COVID-19 led lockdowns in March 2020. Despite the challenging conditions pre and post pandemic outbreak, BRIT’s strong in-market execution enabled it gain market share (Hindi heartland majorly) and also widen its gap with the peer by a far margin. We believe, post lifting of lockdown BRIT could further see market share gain opportunities driven by 1) distribution expansion in Hindi belt, 2) opportunities to gain share from regional/local players who may witness a drag on their business post COVID-19: Axis Securities

    Aarti Industries - Opportunity in adversity; Buy

    The notable feature of Q4FY20 results of Aarti Industries (AIL) is the termination of a large contract—annual revenue of INR4bn for ten years (40% EBITDA margin)—by a customer. This may affect medium-term profitability, but we do not see it as having major impact on AIL’s growth visibility. On the contrary, AIL may use this as an opportunity to forward-integrate into AI (active ingredient) manufacturing driven by its technical capability as well as strong tie-ups with customers. The compensation of USD120–130mn will defend our FY21/22 estimates; moreover, it provides a windfall of INR5–6bn, which could be utilised for additional capex. Keeping our estimates unchanged and not factoring in cash flows on account of termination, we believe the recent correction in the stock is an opportunity; we reiterate ‘BUY’ with a TP of INR1088 (25xFY22 EPS).

    Eicher Motors rating: Buy — A weak performance by the company

    Eicher’s Q4 consolidated Ebitda and net profit fell 37-44% y-o-y and were a 10-20% miss, led by lower margin and higher taxes. Demand commentary was strong though and Eicher said its bookings have recovered to almost pre-Covid levels. Product catalysts are nearing too with the first launch in Sep-Q. We find Eicher well-placed to benefit from the potential demand recovery with its strong franchise, aggressive product pipeline and big network expansion. We retain Buy.
