The benchmark indices rallied over 1 per cent on Thursday on the expiry of November-series futures and options (F&O) contracts, led by a sharp gain in rupee and buying in financial counters. That apart, positive global cues buoyed by US Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's speech which suggested that the US rate hikes will be gradual, boosted the sentiment further. The S&P BSE Sensex ended at 36,170, up 453 points (1.27 per cent), while the broader Nifty50 index settled at 10,859, up 130 points (1.21 per cent). The index recorded its sharpest gain ...

Anand Rathi on Century Plyboards Held back primarily by poor margins in MDF (more pricing pressure because of increased industry capacity) and in laminates (higher input costs), Century’s Q2 was weak, with PAT down 6% y/y. Besides, the depreciating rupee played a role (at the PBT level, forex loss of Rs 108m). Plywood, on the other hand, did better. For these reasons, we cut our FY19e and FY20e earnings respectively 9.3% and 6.7%. Expecting a gradual recovery in margins (on a price hike in laminates and normalisation of pricing pressure in MDF), we now expect 15% and 26% CAGRs over FY18-20 in respectively revenue and PAT. We maintain a Buy with a lower target price of `225 (20x FY20e P/E).

ICICI Securities on HEG Going forward, we expect the share of the electric arc furnace (EAF) route in overall steelmaking to increase further thereby supporting global graphite electrode demand. We continue to value the company at 10x FY20E EPS of | 575 thereby arriving at a target price of | 5750. We maintain our BUY rating on the stock. In addition to healthy demand prospects, the capacity expansion announced by HEG will provide healthy revenue visibility over a medium-term. Hence, this reiterates our positive view on the stock.

ICICI Securities on Somany Ceramics Going ahead, with a steady improvement in demand and revival of EBITDA margin with a sharp fall in crude oil & higher share of value added product along with recent price hike of 2-3% across portfolio, we believe its financial performance is set to improve, going ahead. Also, the stock is currently trading at 13.7x FY20E EPS, which is at ~45% discount to Kajaria’s valuations. With the anticipated improvement in financial performance, we believe this discount should narrow down. Hence, we upgrade the stock to BUY recommendation, with a target price of | 375/share (18x FY20E EPS).

Kotak Securities on Time Technoplast Limited (TTL) TTL is trading at P/E of 12.8x and 10.1x FY19E and FY20E earnings respectively, which is attractive as it is at a discount to midcap index valuation. In recent months, the TTL stock has been derated in line with general sell-off in the midcaps and smallcaps universe. At the current price, valuations are attractive. Hence, we continue to maintain our positive stance on the company. We value the stock at 13x FY20 earnings and arrive at a price target of Rs 145 (Rs 195 ealier, based on 15x FY20E).

Sector watch: Nomura on automobiles Our industry interactions indicate that festive retails have been flattish across PVs/2Ws which has led to higher inventory levels. We believe this should lead to slower wholesales in the month. For Nov-18, we expect passenger vehicle (PV) industry volumes to decline 1% y-y. We expect Maruti Suzuki to be broadly in line. MSIL had seen 6% growth in festive season retails after being flat in the first half of the season. We are factoring in 5% yoy PV industry growth in FY19F, implying ~5% y-y growth in the remaining 4MFY19F. Maruti Suzuki remains our long-term top pick in the sector, given a strong model cycle and high FCF generation. We also like M&M and Hero Motocorp given high FCF free cash-flow yields.
