Vinod Nair, Head of Research, Geojit Financial Services   After a subdued trade through the day, the market reversed from day’s low led by banking stocks. The recent correction in PSU banks provides an opportunity for investors to accumulate as the long term prospects remains strong owing to healthy recapitalisation. On the macro front, upcoming RBI policy and Gujarat state election will be an influential factor for investors which is steering the market to consolidate.

Reliance Securities on ​​KEC International   ​​KEC International (KEC) has delivered a strong performance in 2QFY18. Despite higher commodity prices, KEC’s overall EBITDA margin expanded by 139bps YoY to 10.1% in 2QFY18 owing to absence of low-margin legacy orders in Water, Railways and Power Systems segments and execution of recently bagged better-margin orders by SAE Towers. Its net profit rising by 42% YoY to Rs894mn led by higher margin and lower interest cost.   With fresh orders worth Rs 57.5 billion, KEC’s order book stood at Rs 140 billion as of FY18 YTD (+14% YoY). We expect the strong order intake traction to continue, going forward led by higher T&D spending by SEBs, improved Railways ordering and recovery in overseas markets i.e. Saudi, SAARC & Africa.   We expect KEC’s earnings to witness 25.2% CAGR over FY16-19E on strong order book, improving margin profile and healthy outlook in T&D and other emerging business segments.   We continue to remain positive on the fundamentals of KEC with a Target Price of Rs 372.
