Reliance Securities on KNR Constructions    KNR Constructions (KNRC) surged nearly 2% in Monday’s trade on expectations of better performance, led by possible surge in order inflow and execution expertise. Notably, KNRC has been very consistent in terms of execution and delivering higher growth over the years. We expect KNRC’s revenue and PAT to register 18% and 11% CAGR, respectively through FY17-FY19E on the back of decent order book and healthy order inflow in coming months. We maintain our positive view on KNRC mainly owing to healthy order book, strong balance sheet (0.1x net D/E) and sound execution credentials. We reiterate our fundamental BUY recommendation on the stock with a SOTP-based Target Price of Rs 245.
