WEB EXCLUSIVE No-confidence motion likely to be a non-event for the markets   The no-confidence motion – a first in 15 years – is likely to be a non-event for the markets as they expect the Narendra Modi – led National Democratic Alliance government to sail through easily. In the 545-member (including the Speaker) Lok Sabha, the BJP-led NDA can bank on support from over 300 members, including the 273 of the BJP, Shiromani Akali Dal's (SAD's) 4, reports suggest.   This is not the first time that the NDA – led government is facing a test of strength at the floor of the House. Back in 2003, the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpaee defeated a no-confidence motion moved by the then Congress President Sonia Gandhi. READ MORE

Centrum on UltraTech Cement UltraTech’s (UTCEM) Q1FY19 standalone EBITDA rose a modest 4% YoY, as weak pricing amid elevated cost inflation moderated the positives of 33% YoY volume growth (core volume up ~7.5% YoY). Continued improvement in energy consumption metrics and lead distance reduction partly moderated the impact of rising energy costs YoY.  Amid a good demand outlook, we expect UTCEM to deliver an industry leading 14% volume CAGR during FY18-20E. We also expect UTCEM’s margins to benefit from better pricing (H2FY19 onwards), UTCEM’s rising economies of scale and prudent cost controls. We reiterate BUY with a revised target price of Rs4,740

Kotak Securities on Hindalco According to reports, Hindalco may acquire Aleris, a manufacturer of rolled products for US$2.5 bn. We believe this acquisition can be earnings accretive in a short span as Aleris has invested close to US$800 mn in growth capex over the last few years which can aid strong growth in earnings over the next 2-3 years—EBITDA can improve to US$310-325 mn by FY2020 from US$200 mn. We estimate Hindalcs leverage to be comfortable with net- debt/EBITDA at 3X-2.5X over FY2019-2020E. We maintain our BUY rating.

Motilal Oswal on Bajaj Finance We think that at P/B of 6x FY20 and PE of 30x, valuations have become premium. At our target price of Rs 2,500, there is no upside – hence we downgrade to Neutral. Risk to our rating change essentially remains from continued multiple expansion.
