TOP PICKS: LT, KNR, PNC Infra, Ashoka, NCC, Capacite Infra, ITD and KPTL. HDFC Securities Institutional Equities (HSIE) hosted the 4th Annual Infrastructure Investors Forum on 18/19th Feb 2021, though virtual this time. We had attendees from 12 large listed Industrials/Infrastructure companies represented by Promoters, CEO/CFO/IR teams. After almost a decade, there is strong/consensus optimism building up for the Indian Infrastructure story. Ordering has moved beyond roads with focus now on health, education, portable water, renewable energy, manufacturing expansion, uptick in real estate cycle and all this is coinciding with relatively lower crude prices, lowest interest rate and improving GDP/Tax collection. Companies remain bullish whilst valuation is still at 40-50% discount to cross cycle mean. We maintain constructive as envisaged in our thematic On Road to Rerating and Triggering a New Cycle.

The expansion at Camana Bay is likely to improve HCCI's reach to patients both international and local, due to close proximity to the airport and several major residential complexes. Significant capital outlay notwithstanding, the new facility would complement the existing set up by focusing more on day care, short stay but niche categories of oncology care while the existing facility would continue to cater to tertiary and quaternary care. We expect the impact of this blended model to materialise from FY23 onwards. NH's experience in running hospital in this region could be handy...

Near term growth momentum depends on the demand for industrial and protective coatings which further depends on macro environment recovery. Also, competitive pressures and raw material price fluctuation could impact the business prospects in long-term. Hence, considering the extended valuation, we downgrade our rating on the...

Delay in order finalization leads to 45% decline in OI, but healthy ordering visibility seen in both domestic and international markets. GE T&D; (GETD) reported strong quarterly performance led by stellar execution, cost rationalization measures and higher other income. Sales grew by 10% YoY as manufacturing and project sites were operating at full capacity. Order inflow decline 45% to Rs6.9bn owing to delay in order finalization. Order book stood decent at Rs49bn (excluding L1 Rs3bn)...

Softness in Consultancy and Turnkey led to subdued Q3FY21 RITES reported revenues of `4.3bn (-28% YoY) with subdued Consultancy-Domestic and Turnkey performance which declined 18% YoY and 19.2% YoY to `2.17bn and `1.58bn respectively. The softness in consultancy was led by QA- related site level inspection delays and construction marred by land acquisition. For 9MFY21, the topline declined 19% YoY to `11.8bn. With planned 34% increase in budgetary capex for rail (lasting upto 2030), Metro and Infra projects the company sees foreseeable double digit growth in FY22 over FY20. The company reported EBITDA of `1.1bn down 25% YoY. The...

While NBCC's order book position has remained strong, its revenue and margin performance was benign with challenges witnessed in big-ticket size redevelopment projects and margins declining in the PMC segment. While there are triggers such as a) expected surge in executable order book position, b) improvement in margins and c) with lean-balance sheet position, we will await execution and margin pick-up before turning constructive.

JMC Projects: JMC Projects (JMC) reported in-line revenue at Rs 10.7bn (+15%/+32% YoY/QoQ). However, EBITDA/APAT missed our estimate by 20%/41% as the additional cost related to labour transportation and higher commodity prices impacted margin. YTD order inflow stood at Rs 75bn, taking the order book to Rs 142bn (ex. L1 of Rs 7.5bn). We remain constructive on JMC, given (1) a healthy order book (~4x FY20 revenue) and (2) comfortable balance sheet. We reiterate BUY with an unchanged target price of Rs 110. We have cut our FY21 estimate to incorporate the miss on margin in 3QFY21. Key risks: (1) delay in restructuring/monetisation of BOT assets and (2) increase in leverage. ITD Cementation: While ITD saw robust execution (Rs 7.9bn, +12%/+43% YoY/QoQ, 13% beat), margins have still not normalised to pre-COVID levels (9%, -9/+922 bps YoY/QoQ, vs 10.8% HSIE est.). Labour availability has fully normalised. Order backlog is robust at Rs 130bn (4.5x FY20 revenue), aided by FYTD21 order wins of Rs ~40bn. Although consolidated net debt (Rs 4.4bn vs Rs 3.4bn at 2QFY21) has increased QoQ, the balance sheet remains robust at 0.4x net D/E, as cash utilisation has gone up. We maintain BUY on ITD with an unchanged target price of Rs 106/sh, (1) given large order book (~4.5x FY20 revenue), (2) strong balance sheet and (3) supportive valuation (6.1x FY23E EPS). No change in our financial estimates. ONGC: Our REDUCE recommendation on ONGC with a price target of INR 101 is premised on (1) muted crude oil and gas realisations and (2) lack...

IPM is struggling for growth above 10% even after MoM abating COVID concerns and with MRs, physician activities almost reaching pre-COVID level. We believe key reasons for growth below par are (i) subdued new prescription (Rx) leading to volume de-growth (ii) digital marketing yield going south and (iii) sustained lower demand of acute products. Cardiac and anti-diabetic growth takes a breather in Jan-21 at 8.8% and 5.3% after reporting double digit growth in most months during lockdown.

LICHF saw largely stable asset quality during Q3FY21 with stage 3 assets declining 11 bps QoQ to 2.68%. On a proforma basis, there was slight deterioration though, as proforma GNPA (calc) increased from ~3% to ~3.7%, as the management had indicated that ~1% of loans would have been recognised as NPA if not for standstill norms. NPA in individual category fell from 1.7% to 1.62% QoQ while in project loans it was down 30 bps QoQ to 16.22%. Collection efficiency improved from 96% to 98% QoQ. Thus, asset quality remains steady but provision buffer at ~1.3% of...

We increase our earnings estimates for FY21E to factor rise in global crude oil prices given production cuts by OPEC countries and similarly for FY22/23 to factor in lower cost. Global crude oil and gas prices will likely remain weak given uncertain demand environment plus new supplies may come in Mar-21 when production cuts get reviewed; accordingly, we factor in USD45/55/bbl...

Adjusted EBITDA (excluding a one-off expense of INR3b on a pre Ind AS 116 basis) was up 15% QoQ (9% beat) due to strong cost rationalization, reducing SG&A; by 32% QoQ as subscriber churn significantly decelerated. VIL's liquidity, ability to invest on its network as well as protect its market share is constrained by the humongous net debt of INR1,171b and meager FY22E EBITDA of INR107b (pre Ind AS 116), thus dependent on a further fund raise. We change our rating from Under Review to Neutral....
