Edelweiss on Adani Ports & SEZ (APSEZ) APSEZ remains vulnerable to forex risk and up-fronting of losses would hit P&L in the near term, but the exposure is positive up to 100USD/INR considering cost savings in absence of hedging, making forex risk manageable. However, the cost of debt (currently 3.8%) would eventually rise (beyond FY20) given hardening US bond yields. That said, volume growth momentum is strong with major ports logging 6% volume growth in July/August, which bodes well for APSEZ. All in all, maintain ‘BUY/SO’.
