However, we expect some margin pressure due to higher chemical (RM) costs in laminates, and realization pressure in MDF as competition heats up in North India. We currently have an ADD rating on the stock with a Dec’19 target price of Rs 283.

MUST READ ​Why India's world-beating growth is not enough to end its deep jobs drought The world’s fastest growing major economy isn’t growing nearly fast enough. That may seem like an absurd description for India, an economy the International Monetary Fund expects to expand 7.3 percent in the fiscal year through March 2019 and 7.5 percent in the next. Yet the reality is that even at its current pace, India is having trouble creating enough new jobs for its massive workforce or enough wealth to broaden its middle class READ MORE HERE

Sector watch: Automobiles India Ratings and Research (Ind-Ra) has maintained a stable outlook for the auto sector for the remainder of FY19. This is in line with Ind-Ra’s earlier expectations of moderate sales volume growth in the passenger vehicle (PV) segment, double-digit growth in the commercial vehicle (CV) segment and steady growth in the two-wheeler segment (2W) on a year-on-year basis.   While the growth momentum in CVs is likely to continue, thanks to improved economic activity, increased infrastructure development and improved mining activities, the growth rate is likely to moderate in 2HFY19 due to a higher base. Amid several regulatory changes undergoing in the industry, CV growth would remain susceptible to clarity regarding the new axle load norms and vehicle scrappage policy.
