Elara Cement universe saw robust YoY improvement in profitability, primarily led by a low base of Q2FY23, which was hit by weak cement prices and elevated operating costs due to the Russia-Ukraine war.
However, profitability for most cement firms declined Q-o-Q, hit by seasonal factors such as volume contraction during monsoons and increased spending on repair and maintenance. Thus, EBITDA/tonne for Elara Cement Universe fell ~4% QoQ (up ~61% YoY).
Outlook: Higher price to favorably impact Q3FY24 realization
We remain positive on FY24 demand prospects, considering strong traction in government-backed projects led by General Elections in CY24. Thus, firms that have added capacity in the past two years may capitalize the most on buoyant demand. While fuel prices have witnessed an uptrend recently, this negative impact may be offset by the uptick in cement prices in September and October in several markets and benefit of operating leverage.

“The immediate impact of the RBI action to increase the risk weight on certain categories of unsecured loans, loans to NBFCs and credit card loans is that this will increase the capital requirements of banks, which, in turn, will increase their cost of capital. Since the credit demand in segments like unsecured retail loans is robust, banks can easily pass on the increased cost to borrowers. So, there will be a marginal increase in the cost of credit to borrowers. The impact on banks’ profitability will be negligible.
“From the perspective of macro financial stability this is a welcome decision.”

On Friday, the Indian stock market experienced a mixed performance as a decline in financial stocks, following the tightening of consumer lending rules by the country’s central bank, counteracted the positive impact of a rally fueled by a more favorable U.S. interest rate outlook and a decrease in oil prices.

Outlook 2024: Stay selective—prefer Asia tech & domestic resilience
“We think EM and Asia ex Japan equities could see flattish returns in 1H24, as upside from the tech cycle may be offset by a US slowdown. EM and Asia ex Japan equities +7-9% by end-2024, driven by earnings. A strong earnings recovery, led by Asia tech is seen despite slower global growth, we forecast strong earnings growth of 14.0% and 12.4% in 2024 and 2025. The five key themes which we think could drive EM returns in 2024. We prefer markets where analysts’ stock ratings are the most positive relative to the last five years. We prefer Korea/Taiwan over China for now; domestic-focused markets”

AIA Engineering’s strategy is to serve as a complete solution provider for grinding media and mill liners. The company has indicated that core client industries remain strong and that it does not anticipate any major macroeconomic challenges for its customers in the mining, cement and utilities verticals over the next 12 months.
To capitalise on the conversion trend from forged media to high chrome mill internals in the mining industry, AIAE plans to expand capacity from 440,000mt to 520,000mt by FY24 through brownfield capex of ₹2bn. The company has a healthy balance sheet (net cash of ₹25bn as of FY23) with negligible leverage and strong free cash flow generation.
AIAE’s technological leadership over the years in high chrome mill internals, strong growth opportunity in mining sector and superior financial metrics of growth, margins, cash flows and ROIC are key business moats. Hence we Initiate BUY and value the stock at 30x FY26E with a TP of ₹4,225

Jindal Stainless is organising an investors plant visit at Jajpur, Odisha, on November 22, 2023. The stock rises by 3.31% on the NSE, trading at ₹493.05.
Fitch Ratings expects India’s power demand to rise by around 7% in the financial year ending March 2024 (FY24) amid robust industrial activity.
The strong power demand should keep thermal power plant load factors high (7MFY24: 68.7%). However, we expect coal import volume to remain modest, with higher local supply meeting a large part of the increased demand. Coal inventory at power plant has been declining since August 2023, when monthly power demand reached a record high. The government aims to boost local coal production and allow power plants to blend a higher proportion of imported coal in the fuel mix to ensure adequate coal stock.
We expect cost-effective storage capacity and new technology to help India meet its ambitious long-term energy transition goals. The country has implemented various schemes to boost renewable energy capacity addition. We expect recent changes to wind capacity auctions to limit aggressive bidding and lead to better project execution. Solar power continues to lead renewable capacity addition, contributing 5.0GW of new capacity out of the 6.6GW of total renewable capacity additions in 1HFY24.
We forecast the receivable position of generation companies to continue improving in the near term, as distribution companies are promptly clearing dues, encouraged by the central government’s late payment surcharge rule.

Growth in unsecured retail loans and loans to NBFCs have exhibited a 2-year CAGR of 24%/26% respectively vs sector loan CAGR of 16% over the same period. This pace of growth could have prompted the changes in risk weight by the central bank as a prudent measure even while asset quality trends have so far been holding up. On a prima facie basis, the banking system would have to evaluate capital requirement as per the new risk weights vs growth dynamics even while many banks especially the large private sector banks are well capitalised. higher capital requirement for banks for NBFC lending may lead to higher cost of borrowing for NBFCs if passed on by the banking sector. The impact of the regulations would of course differ from entity to entity and be become clearer subsequently

RBI tightens capital norms for unsecured personal, credit card and bank loans to NBFCs.
RBI followed-up with its cautious stance on unsecured retail loans by raising risk weights on such loans by 25ppt (existing and new loans). These will apply on unsecured personal loans, credit card, consumer durable loans by banks and NBFCs; risk weight on bank loans to NBFCs will also rise. Tightening is more than expected as it encapsulates (1) all forms of unsecured loans not just sub Rs50k loans which was a segment that RBI was most worried about and (2) bank loans to NBFCs to tighten such lending.
Bank to see 50-60 bps haircut on Tier I CAR; higher for large private banks; lower for Bandhan & IIB; most banks are well capitalised. Our analysis of segment wise exposure of banks indicates that banks will see 50-60bps impact on Tier I CAR due to rise in risk weights on personal loans, credit card dues and loans to NBFCs. Large private banks will see higher impact due to higher share of unsecured loans. PSU banks have tad lesser impact than larger private banks. Among smaller banks, IIB & Bandhan have lower impact; IDFCFirst Bank has higher share of unsecured loans. While most private banks are well capitalised, this may force some banks (especially for PSU banks like SBI & PNB) to advance capital raising cycle by a year or so. Banks may also look to raise rates on loans to NBFCs and tighten lending norms, which may impact earnings.

(SAIL IN, Mkt Cap USD4.4b, CMP INR88, TP INR85, 3% Downside, Neutral)
In 2QFY24, SAIL received a one-time revenue and EBITDA gain of INR17.5b related to rail price revision for FY22. This is as per the recommendation of the Office of the Chief Adviser (Cost), Ministry of Finance. For a like-to-like comparison, we have adjusted 2QFY24 financials by excluding this one-time gain.
SAIL’s revenue was up 7% YoY at INR280b in 2QFY24, higher than our estimate of INR255b, driven by better-than-expected volumes, which was offset by lower ASP. ASP for 2QFY24 stood at INR58,256/t, lower than our estimate of INR60,679/t.
SAIL recorded its highest 2Q crude steel production at 4.8mt (up 18% YoY), higher than our estimate of 4.2mt. SAIL also achieved the highest-ever 2Q sales volume at 4.8mt (up 14% YoY), higher than our estimate of 4.2mt.
EBITDA grew 189% YoY to INR21b, in line with our estimate of INR23b. EBITDA was supported by lower coking coal prices and better volume mix.
SAIL reported APAT of INR3b, which was lower than our estimate of INR7b. Lower than expected other income and higher tax outgo impacted APAT.
In 2QFY24, SAIL made a provision for the settlement of contractual disputes amounting to INR4.1b under Vivad se Vishwas Scheme – II.

The RBI has increased risk weight on CC/PL/consumer durable loans by 25% across banks and NBFCs, while segments like Housing, Vehicle, Education, Gold loans and MFI will continue to attract the same risk weight. The revised risk-weights will be applicable to both new and outstanding loans and will impact capital ratios of underlying banks & NBFCs. While the measure is prudential in nature, it will impact the capital ratios of lenders and compel them to increase interest rates on such products to mitigate the impact on RoE.
Affected consumer credit forms 10-16% of loans for our coverage banks
The consumer segments, where risk weight has been increased, form 10-16% of loans for our coverage banks. The RBI has also increased risk weight for banks lending to NBFCs by 25%, excluding loans to housing finance companies (HFCs) and loans to NBFCs, which are eligible for classification as priority sector. In our calculation, we have thus assumed 40% of NBFC exposure (excluding HFCs), which will undergo a revision in risk weight. The move will lead to a 2-5% increase in RWA across our coverage banks.
CET-1 ratio to get impacted by 30-85bp (barring SBI Cards); Healthy capitalization level (barring SBIN) remains a comfort
Our estimates suggest a 30-85bp impact on capital ratios (barring SBI Cards) on account of the increase in risk weight. Our calculations suggest the impact to be maximum for RBL/HDFCB/ICICI at 84bp/72bp/64bp, while SBIC remains the most vulnerable with a 416bp impact. Strong profitability and healthy capitalization levels across lenders will cushion the impact of this measure. In 2QFY24 results, most lenders suggested that they have tightened the underwriting standards and are closely monitoring the risks in the retail segment. However, we remain watchful of growth and asset quality trends in unsecured retail.

While pressure for incremental weakness in INR might persist in the near-term given the volatility in the global markets, it is no longer likely to be intense in the coming weeks and the risks of INR breaching the level of 84 has reduced. The recent softness in US labor market/ inflation data has weighed upon the US dollar (DXY index has slipped 2.2% since its recent highs in Oct-23), thereby providing respite to EM currencies. Further, the likelihood of Fed opting for another rate hike in Dec-23 has also progressively declined, mitigating the risks of further capital outflows.
As a signatory to the Paris Agreement India has to reduce power generation from coal and substantially increase power generation from renewable energy.

This has aroused investor interest in the stocks of these companies investing in green energy
Jio emerges as the major gainer
Industry’s VLR base declined by 3.1mn in Aug-23, from the 3.6mn increase in Jul-23. This was led by industry VLR decreasing from 91.3% to 90.9%. VIL continued to lose VLR subscribers (-2.9mn), with Bharti also seeing a VLR subs loss, of 0.4mn, owing to lower VLR.
Jio saw subs addition of 1.2mn in Aug-23. In terms of overall subscribers, Jio continued to report the highest addition for the 17th straight month (3.2mn in Aug-23), with Bharti lagging at 1.2mn adds. VIL reported flat subs addition QoQ, as loss rate moderated. The overall subscriber base increased by 2.2mn. Jio also had a lead in wireless broadband subscriber addition, with an increase of 3.2mn; Bharti followed, logging a 2.6mn increase MoM. VIL’s wireless broadband subscriber-count was up 1.3mn MoM.
Jio seems to have gained from the launch of JioBharat phone. Jio’s wireline addition rate moderated, with addition of only 0.19mn subs (as against a 0.23mn addition in Jul-23), possibly due to monsoons. Even as Jio and Bharti continue with 5G rollouts, timing of the tariff hike remains the key trigger. VIL needs a sizable fund-raise to increase capex for restricting the loss of subs. We continue to favor Bharti Airtel and Jio among telcos.
Balance sheet allows continued outperformance; maintain BUY
Ethos delivered a 23% EBITDA beat, led by 300bps better margins on faster MRP revisions and lower operating costs. Robust outperformance continued vs. other retail formats, with 32% topline growth in Q2/H1 (23% SSG). Demand trends remain encouraging in the luxury space (21% growth in Indian Swiss-watch exports in 9MCY23) and Ethos should be a key beneficiary with a strengthened balance sheet (Rs3.7bn: QIP raise + net cash). Ethos’ focus is to grow faster, and it plans to use proceeds towards (1) accelerated network expansion (~100 stores over FY23-27 vs. 25-30 stores earlier), (2) front-loading of inventory purchases for exclusive partnerships and (3) ramp-up of acquired brand – Favre Leuba.
We maintain BUY and raise our TP by 15% to Rs2,300, led by a 5-8% increase in estimates on margin beat, 12% increase in TP multiple on strengthened balance sheet and 4% negative impact of equity dilution. A better return generation in Favre Leuba is a potential upside.
