Three NBFC stocks at attractive valuations

NBFCs remain notches ahead of the banks in terms of demonstrating strong growth
 
When banking channel credit growth remains anaemic, the performance of non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) is noteworthy. NBFCs remain notches ahead of the banks in terms of demonstrating strong growth.

For an investor, while the ‘me-too’ model of pure-play housing finance companies (HFCs) may limit the scope for incremental growth, NBFCs outside of this basket could offer higher returns and diversified growth. From this stand point, stocks such as Capital First, Cholamandalam Investment and Finance and L&T Finance offer uniqueness.

We envisage Sun TV to be beneficiary of Phase III & IV digitisation. Digitisation in Tamil Nadu is a key stock catalyst. Though the stock corrected 17.7% in past 2 months due to dip in Sun TV’s market share owing to intense competition from Star Vijay (has expanded market with non-fiction content), we believe this is temporary as Sun TV’s viewership is intact. At CMP, the stock trades at 23.1x FY18E and 20.7x FY19E EPS. We maintain ’BUY/SO’ with TP of Rs 1,024 (30x FY19E).

Nifty outlook by Angel Broking 
 
We believe that the much awaited correction is in the early stages now and we would continue to see market remaining under pressure for next few weeks. Immediately, the daily ’89 EMA’ level of 9,600-9,580 is to be tested soon. Since, it’s a major level in the near term; the index may respect it for a while. But, eventually, after a minor bounce back or consolidation, we expect the index to sneak below it. Traders are repeatedly advised to remain light and avoid taking undue risks as individual stocks may continue correcting in next few days. On the flipside, 9,770-9,852 is likely to act as a strong resistance zone in the near term.

There is a Doji formation in the daily chart of Nifty which can trigger a trend reversal but however, it has broken the support of 9,820 decisively and technically, since the sentiment has weakened, more space on the downside is visible before any possibility of revival happens. READ MORE
