IIFL on Cement sector   Although dealers indicate scepticism on price increases in March, producers have increased prices in March every year following increased availability of labour after Holi since 2003.   While higher input costs, heightened competition, and increased stringency in overloading restrictions are likely to put some pressure on margins, higher-than-expected volume growth is likely to partially offset the same.    We expect utilisation to cross the 70% mark in FY19 after a five-year gap and enhance pricing power of producers over the next two years. However, robust demand growth over the past two quarters has renewed optimism and led to producers considering capacity expansions. Utilisation crossing the 75% mark for the industry remains elusive

TeamLease Services surges 17% as RBI raises FPI investment limit   TeamLease Services surged 17% to Rs 2,387 on the BSE in intra-day trade on Wednesday, in an otherwise weak market after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) raised the investment limit for foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) in the company to 75% on Tuesday.   Currently, FPIs hold 24.64% stake in TeamLease Services, one of India’s leading human resource service companies in the organized segment.   “The Reserve Bank of India has notified that the Foreign Portfolios Investors (FPIs) investment limit under Portfolio Investment Scheme in TeamLease Services has increased from 24% to 75% of its paid up capital,” the RBI said in a press release.

Edelweiss on GMR Infra   We have valued GMR at Rs 29/share, using SOTP approach. While near-term weakness in airport division’s performance is likely due to implementation of tariff order in Delhi airport, steady traffic spurt in airports and improving volumes in power/road assets are envisaged to boost the company’s fortunes. Regulatory upsides in existing airports, new airport wins in India and asset monetisation will be key stock drivers, in our view. We initiate coverage with ‘BUY’ recommendation.
