Further, Haier Appliances (Haier Group is positioned No.1 in global home appliance industry for consecutive 10 years) is expanding its capacity by 1mn room AC (17% capacity addition of FY19 AC sales volume) in the coming financial years. Going forward, we believe competition will intensify in this industry.

We are exiting from Ashok Leyland given that November M&HCV sales are down 36% which is also below our estimates and we do not expect demand to pick up for the rest of FY20 as envisaged earlier which puts our FY20 earnings estimate at risk. We also expect demand to remain under pressure in FY21 as well. Going by industry commentary, no major pre-buying is expected on account of migration to BS6 in CV segment as transportation demand continues to remain sluggish. Also, lack of clarity on the final contours of the scrappage policy is adding to the uncertainties. Hence we recommend our clients to exit from the stock at CMP of `75.75.
|December 2, 2019 13:05||Top Picks||Yes Bank||
Yes Banks Balance sheet deteriorated with asset quality worsened sharply. Quantum of BB and below-rated book remains elevated as a result of which slippage continues to remain high. Upgrade and recovery remain negligible. High bad assets and slippages led to accelerated provisioning, which in turn led to weak core profitability.
The current deal (Capita Infusion) would require RBI approval, given that individual investors/institutions want to invest more than 5% in the bank which can take time. High provisions and the bank’s intention to build retail liability will keep ROE under pressure. Hence, we recommend investors to exit from Yes bank.

GMM posted a good set of numbers for Q2FY20 with a topline and EBITDA and PAT growth of 37.2%, 66.9% and 85.7% respectively.

While the glass lined equipment and mixing business continue to post strong growth turnaround in the heavy engineering division helped the company post a record EBIDTA margin of 19.6% for Q2FY20 up 310bps YoY and 210bps QoQ. We assign a target P/E multiple of 25xFY21e EPS estimate of INR 82.4 and revise our target to INR 2059 from INR 1740.
|November 7, 2019 10:30||Top Picks||Mahindra & Mahindra||
We are exiting out of M&M from Top Picks. We are exiting out of M&M as we expect the company’s auto sales numbers to remain under pressure. The stock had rallied by about 15% from it’s lows in early September on the back of festive demand which has helped arrest the sharp decline in sales for September and October 2019. Acquisition of Ford’s India operations were also viewed favourably by the markets though synergy benefits may take a very long time to pan out.
However with festive season nw behind us auto sales could come under pressure for M&M given increasing competition in the SUV space which is M&M’s key market. Moreover pending migration to BS6 would also weigh on numbers till April 2020 as companies will want to keep inventories of BS4 vehicles at minimum. With M&M having a predominantly diesel portfolio sales volumes could get adversely impacted in FY21 as cost increase will be significant for diesel vehicles as compared to petrol vehicles post migration to BS6, thus eroding the competitiveness of diesel vehicles relative to petrol vehicles.
GIven that the company has no new major products in the pipeline to counter competition along with pending changes in top management, we believe that the medium term outlook has deteriorated for the company. Therefore we are exiting the stock at current levels.

The company has a strong order backlog of ~INR 3lakh cr. and the pipeline provides strong visibility for new order flows for the rest of the year. We are positive on the prospects of the Company given the Government’s thrust on Infrastructure with over 100lakh cr. of investments lined up over the next 5 years. Reduction in tax rate for domestic companies to 22% from 30% will improve profitability by ~15% for the company
