Reliance Securities on State bank of India    Target Price: Rs 358    State bank of India is the most critical Public Sector Bank of India. It is a very well managed bank among the large public sector banks which has passed the peak the NPA challenges. Credit growth is improving and we expect credit growth of 11% in FY19. The reporting quarter is likely to be very strong with reasonable credit growth and solid treasury gains as bond yields have declined sharply. Earnings are likely to see a marked jump in the quarter on account of improving operating performance and strong treasury income as compared to loss in the base quarter. SBI trades at 1.5x P/ABV which is reasonable. We value the company at Rs 358 per share based on SOTP based valuation methodology.

MFs' entry in commodity derivatives to set stage for more commodity ETFs The route for mutual funds to participate in commodity derivatives is opening up. Multi Commodity Exchange has proposed to the market regulator to allow Exchange Traded Funds in commodity derivatives. The Securities and Exchange Board of India is finalising changes in Mutual Funds Regulations, allowing them formally to participate in commodity derivatives and since ETFs are run by Mutual Fund management companies, while allowing MF, the regulator should also allow ETFs. This will set the stage for allowing commodity Exchange Traded Funds. Read more

ICRA has a stable outlook on Indian IT Services industry   The credit profile of Indian IT Services companies remains stable underpinned by its ability to sustain free cash flows despite pressure on revenue growth and margins. With aggregate operating margins of ICRA sample set at 22.5% for FY2018 coupled with moderate capex (organic as well as inorganic) and working capital requirements, the free cash flows have remained robust historically. Despite pressures on growth and margins over the medium term, these factors are unlikely to impact the free cash flow generation ability of Indian IT Services companies though there could be moderation in the quantum of such cash flows.
