Opec meet in Vienna: Oil ministers back output hike despite Iran's walkout   Opec and its allies reached a preliminary agreement in the face of strong opposition from Iran to boost production by a theoretical 1 million barrels a day -- the actual increase will be smaller as several countries are unable to raise output.   In a night of drama in Vienna, the Joint Ministerial Monitoring Committee, which recommends policy to the group, reached an agreement despite Bijan Zanganeh, the Iranian oil minister, walking out of the meeting and predicting Opec won't reach a final deal when it meets formally on Friday.

Reliance Securities on Ahluwalia Contracts​​  (ACIL) ACIL added orders worth Rs16.2bn in the first two months of FY19 taking its total order backlog to Rs47bn, which offers decent visibility. Further, Rs1.8bn of order is L1 and ACIL expects to add Rs5-6bn more in remaining 10 months of FY19.   We further believe that asset light business model, best in class ​​return ratios and healthy balance sheet augur well for ACIL. We expect the company to report revenue and earnings CAGR of 12% and 21%, respectively through FY18-20E. At the CMP, the stock trades at 16x and 14.2x for FY19E and FY20E earnings, respectively. ​​We have BUY recommendation on the stock with a Target Price of Rs450.

SECTOR WATCH HDFC Securities on cooling products industry We expect low single digit growth in 1QFY19 for Voltas (UCP) and Symphony (domestic) owing to a pickup in the second half of the quarter. We believe stock correction has been greater than the earnings cut since 4QFY18 for Voltas (17% vs. 7% EPS cut) and Symphony (25% vs. 12% EPS cut) implying a de-rating.   Based on our checks, we confirmed that both these players continue to maintain their leadership despite stiff competition. We believe low penetration of cooling products and their leadership position, along with a solid management track record warrants a great entry opportunity to play the structural story.
