Motilal Oswal Research on MAS Financial Services (MASFIN) We believe MASFIN has all the ingredients of a good investment: (a) a small base and presence in well-developed states for strong growth, (b) relentless management focus on generating sustainable, high return ratios, (c) healthy capitalization and d) consistent and healthy asset quality, despite catering to the lower end of the socio-economic customer segment. We maintain our estimates for FY19/20 and reiterate Buy with a target price of Rs 780 (24x Jun’20E EPS, implied 4.3x Jun’20E BV).

COMMENT Nomura on rupee •  A deteriorating EM risk backdrop and pressure on current account deficit currencies has led USD/INR to multi-year highs. We see risk of continued INR depreciation in the near term and enter a short-dated long USD/ INR call spread position.   •  Local factors for depreciation include limited intervention by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and limited concerns, in our view, over FX depreciation (watch this space), a lack of urgency to hike rates, rising political risks, and a large trade deficit with a higher oil price and portfolio outflows.   •  However, there are reasons to expect INR depreciation to be controlled, given the substantial space for policy action by the RBI and government (if desired). Option positioning risk (selling of high strike INR puts) is also less of an RBI concern, while the dual deficits are a drag on INR, but have become less so over the past five years.

Stock view: Balkrishna Industries The Board of Directors of Balkrishna Industries (BIL) has approved a capex outlay of Rs 1,700 crore, which will be completed over 30 months. Incorporating the revised capex outlay disclosed by the company and consequent decline in other income, we change our PAT estimates for FY18-20E. We now expect BIL to clock PAT CAGR of 24.4% vs. 30.3% in the past. We also reduce our valuation multiple, to value BIL at 21x P/E on FY20E EPS of Rs 59.2 and assign a target price of Rs 1250 with a HOLD rating on the stock.   (Source: ICICI Securities)
