Religare calls a ‘Buy’ on GAIL
CMP: Rs. 359    Target Rs. 475

GAIL posted an above-expected Q3 PAT of Rs 16.8bn (+83% QoQ) on higher LPG realisations/margins and a one-time gain of Rs 3.5bn. Highlights: (a) NG transmission/trading volumes improve QoQ to 96/80 mmscmd (Q2: 95/ 79). (b) Transmission tariffs/trading margins at Rs 1361/ tscm and US$ 0.32/mmbtu. (c) Petchem volume sales/realisations at 122TMT (+13% QoQ)/Rs 95.5 per kg. Maintain BUY on (a) a likely increase in NG transmission vol. and p/l tariffs and (b) likely lower subsidy in FY15/FY16E.

LPG realisations shore up operating profits: Operating profits improved to Rs 22.8bn (+56% QoQ) on better realisations (Rs 58/kg) in the LPG segment along with higher EBIT margins at Rs 7.6bn (39.4%) due to subsidy exemption. PAT-level performance was also driven by a one-time gain of Rs 3.5bn from divestment in China gas holding.

NG transmission volumes likely bottom out: NG transmission/trading volumes improved marginally in Q3 to 96/80mmscmd (Q2:95/79mmscmd) and are likely to have bottomed out. We expect an improvement over the coming months led by (a) a likely increase in RIL’s KG-D6 production, (b) commissioning of GSPC’s east-coast Deen Dayal field and (c) improved RLNG intake.

Maintain BUY with a revised TP of Rs 475 on (a) rolling over earnings to FY16, (b) a likelihood of tariff improvement for new p/l, upon revision, (c) an expected improvement in NG transmission/trading volumes and (d) improved profitability on exemption/reduction of the subsidy burden .

Karvy Stock Broking calls a ‘Buy’ on Indoco Remedies
CMP: Rs. 120    Target Rs. 143
Indoco’s revenues increased by 25% YoY to Rs1,884mn in Q3FY14, in line with our estimates of Rs1,770mn. Margins were higher due to favorable product-mix. Net Profit has shown growth of 91% YoY to Rs141mn in Q3FY14.

Revenue Details: The Company’s Domestic branded Formulations (DF) business grew 22% YoY to Rs1,149mn, while its Exports Formulations rose 32% YoY to Rs. 620mn(our estimates). Domestic and Export API grew by 40%YoY and 12% YoY respectively. Formulations exports in Regulated markets are up by 24% YoY to Rs523mn compared to Rs423mn in Q3FY13. Non regulated market grew by 116% YoY to Rs96mn compared to Rs44mn in Q3FY13.

Outlook & Valuation: We increase our revenue estimates for FY14E by 2% to Rs7.3bn and maintain our revenues for FY15E. We decrease our EDBITA margins for FY14E from 13.1% to 12.7% and from 19.2% to 18.4% for FY15E. This has been on account of higher R & D and staff expenses. We decrease our EPS estimates from Rs5.8 to Rs4.4 for FY14E and from Rs13.8 to Rs13 for FY15E. As a matter of prudence we continue to write off R & D from the P & L and remove amortization from depreciation. We rate the stock as BUY with a price target of Rs 143 based on 11x FY15E

Nomura calls a ‘Buy’ on Shriram Transport Finance
CMP: Rs. 626    Target Rs. 740
What happened in Q3: SHTF reported AUM growth of 15%y-y vs our estimate of 18.9% as it chose not to grow even its used CV book sequentially. The lender also reported a 20bps q-q compression in NIMs due to negative carry of excess liquidity during the quarter. In addition quarterly LLPs came in at 226bps, the highest in last nine quarters.

FY15F outlook: We expect NIMs of 6.65%, AUM growth of 14% y-y and LLP of 225bps for FY15F. Within CVs we expect used CV to grow at 20% y-y. We expect some support to growth from increasing rural penetration for the lender and strong fee income traction on its transaction base platforms like Automall.
Catalysts: Strong pick-up in loan growth, decline in LLPs

Valuation: TP cut on decrease in both multiple and earnings estimates SHTF currently trades at 1.5x FY15F ABV of INR409.5 and 8.8x FY15F EPS of INR70, for ROA of 2.9% and adjusted ROE of 18.3%. Our revised TP implies 2.3x FY15F ABV (vs. 2.3x earlier). Our valuation methodology remains unchanged.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Patient and prudent efforts prove fruitful, particularly regarding money matters. Be more prompt with work as you tend to take it easy. There are opportunities galore, provided you are game to taking risks. However avoid making large financial commitments for these will lead to setback. Be prepared for a little harmless flirting at an outing. Try not to get too emotional about a little fun for that is what it is meant to be.
