Cash-starved NBFCs, HFCs raise Rs 73,000 cr in Q3 by securitising SME loans In urgent need of funds, non-banking finance companies (NBFCs) and housing finance companies (HFCs) sold retail and SME loans worth Rs 73,000 crore in October-December 2018 mostly to banks through securitisation, according to rating agency Icra.   The liquidity from the market almost froze in the aftermath of defaults by IL&FS and group firms in the second quarter ended September 2018. This forced Non-banking finance companies and HFCs to liquidate part of their existing loans to generate funds to meet redemption requirements and also partly finance growth in future, analysts said.

To bridge fiscal deficit, RBI likely to pay govt $5.8 bn interim dividend The Reserve Bank of India (RBI), having changed management last month following a clash with the government, is likely to transfer an interim dividend of Rs 300-400 billion ($4.32 billion-$5.8 billion) to the government by March, according to three sources with direct knowledge of the matter.   The dividend could help Prime Minister Narendra Modi's administration bridge a widening budget deficit following a drop in tax collections, and would come after the government pushed the RBI for the additional funds ahead of a national election due by May.

Motilal Oswal on ITC   Cigarettes are a likely candidate for the cess, which has been spoken about for some time but clarity on the rate has only emerged now. The cess at 1% is moderate and lower than fears. It is, thus, a small positive for ITC. There has been no GST hike on cigarettes since July 2017, which has led to some stability on volumes and there were fears that the Kerala cess would be the first opportunity to increase rates sharply. Nevertheless, increase in GST, possibly even a sharp one given the time period elapsed since the last increase, remains a possibility in the next few months. The Advalorem overhang also remains, which, unlike per stick GST, can't be passed on effectively to maintain cigarette EBIT growth in high-single-digits. We have a Neutral rating on the stock.

Motilal Oswal on Titan Company   While we are cognizant of valuation concerns surrounding consumer and retail stocks, we believe that valuations will continue sustaining at premium levels for companies offering the highest visibility in their near-, medium- and longer-term earnings. Revenue growth opportunity of 20% is immense and far superior to peers. Also, the margin trajectory appears to be on an uptrend, as revenue is being driven by SSSG. We, thus, believe that TTAN is one of the few companies in the consumer/retail sector that is least vulnerable to further sectoral multiple contractions, justifying high valuations. We value the stock at 47x Dec’20E EPS (~10% premium to three-year average) to arrive at a TP of Rs 1,125. Buy.
