Should you buy Eicher Motors stocks?

We maintain BUY on Eicher Motors as we anticipate (1) volume growth from new product launches (2) rising exports volume from channel expansion and market share gains and (3) margin expansion as operating leverage kicks in (we build in ~380bps EBITDAM expansion over FY22-24E). We increase our EPS estimates by 2/5% for FY23/24 and assign a revised SoTP based TP of Rs 3,400 (at 28x FY24E EPS for standalone business vs 27x earlier to factor in positive outlook and 18x for VECV).

Expect balance sheet deleveraging to continue: SAIL

SAIL reported a dismal volume performance during the quarter under review, with EBITDA aided by higher realisation. Further, while steel production stood at 4.08mn tonnes, sales at 3.15mn led to huge inventory built up entering into a seasonally slow 2QFY23. However, going forward, we believe that the company is well positioned to continue benefiting from stable spreads over the next few years. Capacity expansion is nearing completion, resulting in volume growth. Also, we expect balance sheet deleveraging to continue, with net debt slated to reduce further from Rs173bn in FY22.

If Nifty surpasses 17800, the rally is likely to extend towards 18100

Tracking strong cues from Wall Street, the Nifty has advanced today to its highest level since April. The bullish momentum remains powerful, but the index has now approached a confluence of resistance near 17800. This includes a trend line resistance drawn connecting the peaks from the record high as well as the 161.8% retracement of the June sell-off. Given the magnitude of the rally over the last few weeks, one must take a cautious stance on the Nifty until 17800 is not surpassed. That said, if 17800 is surpassed, the rally is likely to extend towards 18100 in the days ahead. Abhishek Chinchalkar, Head of Education, FYERS

USD INR: Dips below 79 can be utilized for buying

On the domestic front, the USDINR pair is in a tussle between reality and sentiments to find its right course. On one hand, not-so-good fundaments globally and domestically are pushing the USDINR pair higher, whereas, on the other hand, the pair is pulled by foreign inflows and RBI’s intervention. The pair have entered into a consolidation phase with volatility witnessed in both directions, 80.10 would remain a strong resistance and 78.80 remains strong support for the pair. Until the pair is able to convincingly break on either side, upticks above 79.80 can be taken for selling and dips below 79.00 can be utilized for buying.
