ICICI Securities: Increased cash market activity is expected to boost broking revenue by 16.3% YoY in FY21E. We believe this would be cyclical, and as volatility and retail participation recede, we expect ISEC's market share to drop back to ~8%. We remain concerned about discount brokers acquiring a higher share in active clients and believe the yields would remain pressured. We expect a muted year for distribution income (-10.7% YoY) as average MF assets and life insurance sales could remain subdued. We expect the C/I ratio to improve substantially to 50.8% in FY21E, driving FY21/22E PAT growth of 18.5/3.9% YoY. Given the highly cyclical nature of the business, we are concerned that we may be closer to peak earnings and worry that the market may be ascribing a closer-to-peak multiple. We maintain a REDUCE rating with a target price of Rs 540, i.e. 25x FY22E EPS. Bajaj Auto: While the COVID lockdown in Apr-20 has impacted Bajaj Autos 1Q PAT (-53% YoY, -60% QoQ), the OEM has witnessed a sharp pick-up in 2W domestic volumes in Jun/Jul-20 with retail activity in the current month expected at 85% of normal levels. Further, exports are holding up better than expected as activity in most markets is between 75-100% of normal levels. However, the higher value 3W segment (over 20% of revenues) remains adversely impacted (20% of normal) and is unlikely to revive soon as school activity and office-related travel are yet restricted. We reiterate our ADD rating as the outlook remains mixed. We tweak our estimates lower by...

Strong operational beat; exports hold the key Bajaj Auto's 1QFY21 earnings of Rs5.28bn is ahead of our estimate of Rs4.9bn, driven by strong operating performance. Total income is down ~60% YoY at Rs31.12bn and tad below our estimate of Rs31.56bn due to a lower than expected ASP growth of 9.7% YoY. EBITDA margin has been reported at 14.2%, down 180bps YoY and 470bps QoQ. The beat on our expectation was mainly due to tight cost control measures and lower marketing & ad spends, aided by better forex realizations and better product mix within motorcycles partially offset by higher commodity prices. On the current situation, the management commented that 95% and 84% of the domestic 2W and 3W...

Bajaj Auto (BJAUT) Q4FY20 result was above our and consensus estimates at operating level. EBITDA margin for the quarter stood at 18.4% vs our and consensus estimates of 16.3% and 15.8% respectively. We expect 2W industry to see a double digit decline in FY21 driven primarily by adverse impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on economic growth and discretionary spending. The challenges for the 2W segment are likely to get aggravated as consumer spending will be severely impacted by the outbreak resulting in lower spending power both in urban and rural markets. We believe BJAUT being a major player in 250cc segment could see muted sales for Pulser/Avenger/KTM etc. We...

We re-iterate our ADD rating on the stock, while we expect volumes in the high growth export markets (which are ~45% of vols) to decline in FY21E. A diversified product mix and healthy balance sheet will cushion the impact of the volatile macro environment. Bajaj Autos 4Q PAT (flat/4% YoY/ QoQ) beat was driven by a richer product mix as well as improved profitability. Going ahead, as the environment will remain uncertain, the management expects margins to correct from ~18% levels of 4Q. The OEM will pass on the benefits of a weakening INR to aid demand, particularly in the African markets.

Bajaj Auto posted a strong set of numbers in Q4 FY20, as a volume fall 0f 17% yoy was quite arrested by a 10.1% hike in realizations on a better product mix and benign hike in input costs.

The deep economic impact of the Covid-19 disruption has brought about a role reversal in our immediate and medium term expectations for the auto sector. Earlier, the PV segment was seen outperforming on the back of rising premiumisation content and an expanding UV portfolio. However, with income levels and ensuing propensity to spend under pressure now in the wake of the pandemic, we feel the 2-W space would now be the frontrunner in coming quarters. Within 2-W, rural-heavy motorcycle sub-segment is expected to lead the charge owing to (i) relatively lower Covid-19 outbreak...

Bajaj Auto Limited (BAL) Q4 FY20 results were ahead of our as well as street estimates on account of better realisations per vehicle, driven by a better product mix and higher export realisations. Favourable currency movement and soft commodity prices helped margins beat estimates. Going ahead, the two-wheeler industry is likely to witness faster recovery driven by higher rural exposure. A strong rabi harvest, expectations of good monsoon and the government's recent reforms to open end markets for farmers would boost farm incomes and in turn, two-wheeler demand....

20 May 2020 Bajaj Autos (BJAUT) strong operating performance was driven by mix and Fx, which supports our view that the company has several levers to protect margins. Volume recovery for both India and exports is expected in 2HFY21, with risk of financing for India and oil prices/Fx devaluation for exports. We downgrade our EPS for FY21/FY22E by 4% as we cut volumes but factor in the favorable Fx. Maintain our rating. 4QFY20 revenue/EBITDA/PAT grew -8%/2%/23% YoY to INR68.2/ INR12.5b/INR13.1b. Realizations grew 10.5% YoY (8% QoQ) to INR68.7k (v/s est. INR64.7k), driven by better mix (higher 3W, exports and premium motorcycles) and Fx. Gross margins improved ~150bp QoQ (+340bp YoY), driven largely by mix, higher share of premium motorcycles and favorable Fx.
