Stocks in focus on 27 May, Friday

Bharti Airtel: Moody’s Investors Service has upgraded Bharti Airtel by assigning a ‘Baa3’ issuer rating, on the back of the Sunil Mittal-led telco’s strong operational metrics and stable financial profile. Industry experts said the Moody’s ratings upgrade is significant as it makes “Airtel an investment-grade company,” noting that a Baa3 is the lowest investment grade and the same as an India sovereign rating. Moody’s has also changed the outlook on Airtel’s ratings to ‘stable’ from ‘positive’.

Hindalco: Hindalco Industries beat analyst estimates on all fronts as its consolidated net profit doubled to a record Rs 3,851 crore for the quarter ended March 31. The earnings were driven by a strong performance in the India business, supported by favourable macros, strategic product mix and an improved performance by the downstream business. The company’s consolidated revenue from operations rose 38% on-year to Rs 55,764 crore.

BPCL: The Centre on Thursday called off the process for the strategic disinvestment of BPCL and said the expressions of interest (EoIs) received in this connection “shall stand cancelled.” The plan to sell its entire 52.98% stake in the fuel retailer-cum-refiner had hit dead-end as potential investors have turned more sceptical of “the lack of pricing freedom” with state-owned fuel retailers, besides the global shift for greener energy. Two bidders even walked out from the privatisation process.

IDBI Bank: The board of IDBI Bank has approved an annual general meeting (AGM) to raise funds through the equity route. Shareholders will approve the fund-raising in the AGM. “…the board of directors of IDBI Bank at its meeting held on Thursday has approved the notice convening the 18th annual general meeting of the bank which included passing an enabling special resolution for issue of equity capital through various modes,” the lender said in an exchange filing.

Tata Power: Tata Power Renewable commissioned 100 megawatt (MW) project for MSEDCL in Partur, Maharashtra. The installation comprises over 4,11,900 monocrystalline photovoltaic modules and is expected to reduce around 234 million tonnes of CO2 annually. With this addition of 100 MW, the renewables capacity in operation for Tata Power now stands at 3,620 MW with 2,688 MW of solar and 932 MW of wind. Tata Power’s total renewable capacity is 4,920 MW including 1,300 MW of renewable projects in various stages of implementation.
