Praj Industries, sugar stocks surge as Ethanol blending in India advanced to 2023

Big positive news for Praj Industries and sugar company stocks. India bring forward the target for 20% ethanol-blending in petrol from 2025 to 2023. Earlier the government has set up a visionary target of ethanol blending of 10% in 2022 and 20% in 2030 and then this year the target of 20% blending has been shifted from 2030 to 2025. But now the government has shifted the 20% blending target from 2025 to 2023. This target will help companies like Praj Industries as several companies will set up new capacity for processing ethanol. Along with this major beneficiary of this announcement will be the sugar manufacturing company as we have seen that the realization in ethanol is greater than the realization of sugar. So by selling more and more ethanol their profitability will increase. We have a positive outlook for Balrampur chini mills and Praj Industry. Yash Gupta Equity Research Associate, Angel Broking

Credit Suisse favours cement stocks after cutting metals weightage; remains bullish on private banks

Cement stocks along with consumer discretionaries have attracted the attention of global brokerage and research firm Credit Suisse as it looks to bank on beneficiaries of input cost normalisation. In a note co-authored by Neelkanth Mishra, Abhay Khaitan, and Prateek Singh, Credit Suisse said that going forward, the normalisation of input costs would help sectors such as paints and cement with pricing power in their hands. “An extreme supply-chain bull-whip is likely driving chemicals too: inputs to adhesives, paints, cement, etc. As costs fall, firms with pricing power should benefit,” the report said. After having stayed overweight in metals for months, Credit Suisse recently trimmed weightage fo metal stocks, finding the risk-reward unfavourable and terming the commodity price surge, cyclical and not structural.
