SHAREKHAN ON RIL
 
We largely maintain our FY2018E EPS estimates, as higher GRM and petrochemical EBIT margin assumption is largely offset by losses in telecom business. We have increased our FY2019E EPS to Rs.125.9 to factor in higher GRM estimates of $12/bbl. We maintain our Buy rating on RIL. Any positive surprise in terms of better-than-expected financials of the telecom business would be an important re-rating trigger for RIL going forward

12:16 PM

NOMURA ON RIL Q1FY18 RESULTS
 
RIL reported strong results, though they were largely in line with our expectations. It reported record stand-alone EBITDA and PAT despite nearly 4% q-o-q currency appreciation. Including R-Jio, we expect RIL’s consolidated EBITDA/PAT to record 19%/15% CAGR over FY16-20F (vs a mere 1%/3% CAGR in FY11-16).
 
Importantly, as past capex delivers and current capex pipeline is lighter, RIL will soon start generating high free cash flows, and could surprise with higher dividends and/or buy-backs.

12:14 PM

EDELWEISS ON RIL
 
Reliance Industries (RIL) delivered robust operational performance in Q1FY18 driven by robust petchem margin and surprisingly strong GRM. The stock is inexpensive at 1.2x FY19E P/BV. We reiterate ‘BUY/SO’ with price target of Rs 1,782

STOCK RECOMMENDATION: CENTRUM BROKING ON HT MEDIA
 
We maintain our BUY rating on HT Media and revise our target price to Rs 102. The implementation of cost saving initiatives across the board, over the last few quarters, resulted in margin expansion. Not only did the company reduce employee cost, but it also curtailed raw material cost as well as other expenses, unlike previous years. The steady growth in its radio business and diminishing losses in the digital business are also positives. We believe any uptick in the company’s ad revenue will further drive growth and profitability given the tight control on costs

9:04 AM A December Fed rate hike certainly looks less likely based on the June data. As for the Fed’s seeming commitment to balance sheet contraction, there is clearly an institutional desire on the part of the American central bank to commence this process well before the potential change in Fed leadership. Still, if the Fed does start such contraction, it is taking a big risk, given its deflation obsession, since balance sheet contraction is another form of monetary tightening, says CLSA's Christopher Wood in his weekly note, GREED & fear

9:02 AM Wipro announces buyback offer of Rs 11,000 crore

Nifty closed in the negative territory in the last trading session. On the lower side, 9850 and 9820 are two immediate supports, whereas on the upside, 9930 is an immediate resistance and above those 9950 is the next resistance. So, the short term range for the Index is 9820-9950 levels. It is essential for Nifty to break above 9950 level to move towards 10,150 levels: Anand Rathi Research
