Geojit on Larsen & Toubro   We project Sales/PAT CAGR of 12.2/17.5% over FY17-20E. Recovery in domestic business, strong order pipeline, sale of non-core assets, focus on improving RoE & working capital and healthy execution of large order backlog will drive the stock going forward. Hence, we upgrade the stock to BUY as we roll forward our valuation to FY20 with a SOTP based TP of Rs. 1,515.

US import tariff likely to have limited impact: Analysts   Metal stocks bore the brunt of US President Donald Trump’s plans of imposing 25 per cent import tariff on steel and 10 per cent on aluminium with the Nifty Metal index slipping 3.7 per cent in intra-day deals. By comparison, the Nifty 50 index lost 1.2 per cent.   Among individual stocks, NMDC, Jindal Steel, Jindal Stainless (Hisar), National Aluminium (NALCO), JSW Steel and SAIL slipped 4.6 per cent to 6.4 per cent during the day.

Sector watch: Infrastructure   We maintain our positive stance on the sector and see EPC companies delivering superior returns over the next 12-18 months, after a muted FY17. Our top picks are NCC, Ahluwalia Contracts, and Ashoka Buildcon.    We also like PNC Infratech and KNR Construction but while PNC is likely to remain subdued in the near termdue to its stuck projects in UP/Bihar, KNR appears expensive on valuations. ITD Cementation appears expensive, especially with its execution track record of last few quarters and its unattractive positioning with respect to segments with maximum opportunity   (Source: Phillip Capital)

LTCG tax: Gold, real estate may see revival over the next year The change in long-term capital gains (LTCG) tax on equity coupled to the related tax on equity-oriented funds could lead to significant changes in investment strategies for investors. To recap, the tax-meter starts ticking only from a base date of January 31, 2018 due to the ‘grandfathering’ concept. The price of a stock on January 31, 2018 is used for calculating LTCG. (A more complicated formula is used for mutual funds where systematic investment plans (SIPs) complicate the question of acquisition price). READ MORE
