EARNINGS PREVIEW | Motilal Oswal Financial Services on Auto   Auto Universe is expected to report a 9% YoY PAT decline on a strong base (44% YoY growth in base quarter) – a third consecutive quarter of PAT decline. Excluding Tata Motors, the Auto Universe is expected to post flattish profits. We expect EBITDA margin to shrink by 100bp YoY to 12%, impacted by weak operating leverage (volumes softened across the board in 3QFY19), a weak INR and heightened competitive intensity in two-wheelers.

CLSA on Cement sector   Over the past decade, the cement industry has witnessed a decline in utilisation rates, despite which, cement prices have held up fairly well. FY19 is likely to end with near double-digit demand growth, which will also take up utilisation. This much-anticipated event, however, has been a big disappointer as prices did not see any benefit and in fact, unit Ebitda margins contracted in FY19.    Lower energy prices are a relief but cement prices are the key, and uncertainty prevails here, which is quite counter-intuitive in the context of rising utilisation rates. We yet again trim our FY19-21 EPS estimates for the major players by 3%-15%. We now have a SELL rating on UltraTech, Grasim, India Cements (downgraded from BUY), and downgrade Shree & Ambuja from BUY to O-PF and Dalmia from BUY to U-PF. Ramco and ACC remain BUYs.

YES Securities on Roads sector   The Roads sector has faced rough weather in FY19 owing to:   a) overall weakness in project awarding;  b) delays in financial closure for Hybrid Annuity projects; and  c) poor response to second bundle of Toll Operate Transfer (TOT) projects.    Although most decent-sized road contractors have achieved financial closure for their projects, other issues yet remain as industry woes. FY18 ended on a strong note of hope with order awards aggregating a whopping 17,055 kms and construction of 9,829 kms. FY19 thus promised a lot, especially being the pre-election year. However, only 2,105 kms have been awarded in first eight months of FY19 with construction of 5,759 kms. With FY19 targets of awards set at 20,000 kms, there’s too much for the Ministry to catch up in the last four months.
