Amara Raja Batteries: Amara Raja reported a healthy quarter as revenue grew 14% YoY, driven by pent-up demand. The growth was across automotive segment (2W/4W replacement sales and higher home inverter sales) as well as industrial (higher telecom, UPS segment). While margins expanded to 17.6% on improved operating leverage, we believe that profitability will be lower in 2H as lead prices are firming up. Further, revenue growth is expected to moderate as the home inverter demand is seasonal. Amara Raja will continue to gain market share from the unorganised segment in the near term. However, the co's future technology partnerships (after the exit of Johnson Controls) and its ability to foray into alternate battery chemistries will determine growth opportunities in the longer term. Reiterate ADD with a TP of Rs 840 at 19x Sep-22 EPS. We raise our FY22/23E estimates by ~3% to factor in the better-than-expected results. RBL Bank: A strong rebound in fee income and lower-than-expected operating costs resulted in a significant earnings beat. The bank saw improving deposit (particularly retail) traction, which is creditable. The imminent capital raise is an additional positive. We continue to expect a sharp rise in GNPAs in FY21E. Credit costs will remain elevated in the near term, denting return ratios. This drives our REDUCE rating. We have a target price of Rs 179. Axis Bank: We maintain BUY on AXSB with a target price of Rs 616. AXSB saw strong operating profit growth, led by robust NII growth, a sequential rebound in core fees, and controlled operating costs....

Marico's (MRCO) 2QFY21 earnings were largely in line, barring the 11% volume growth (v/s est. 7.3%). Over the past year, MRCO has witnessed remarkable recovery in its key segments Parachute, Saffola and more recently in case of VAHO. Importantly, the outlook remains strong with guidance of 8-10% volume growth in 2HFY21 as well. While the stock is up 40% since our upgrade in Mar'20, robust sales outlook and inexpensive valuations (37x FY22E, 20% discount to peer average),...

Saturated hair oil category; growth prospects in foods Hair oil category is saturated with limited growth opportunity. In Parachute, ~30% category is unorganised creating limited opportunity to grow through market share gains only. Similarly, VAHO segment has become crowded with too many brands chasing a limited opportunity. We believe growth opportunity for Marico is limited to select brands in VAHO. We believe continued demand for healthier edible oil & food products would result in stronger growth for entire Saffola franchise that is contributing ~25% of...

Saffola franchise and cost savings to support earnings growth We recently interacted with Mr. Pawan Agarwal, CFO, Marico Ltd. (MRCO) in order to get an update on the overall operating environment and demand trends being witnessed on ground. After witnessing YoY volume growth in May-June'20, company's domestic business has seen growth in July'20 and August'20 as well. It has been primarily led by the Saffola franchise (Edible Oils and Foods), partially by coconut oil and new launches made in the health & hygiene space. On the international front, Bangladesh has managed to remain on a firm footing. Copra...

Gross margins expanded 360bps in FY20 amidst benign raw material environment. Average domestic copra prices declined 9% YoY in FY20. Rice bran oil/ LLP/HDPE were down 4%/8%/24% YoY respectively. The company expects mildly bearish trends in copra prices for FY21E given the sudden fall in demand for coconuts. It has taken a 5-6% price cut in Parachute through promotional pricing which will help it gain share from unbranded players. In the near term, the company will reallocate spends from nonmedia to media channels. A&SP; spends were 10% of sales in FY20. Rationalization in ad spends and cost saving initiatives are likely to help...

Nippon Life India Asset Management: While we remain concerned about the loss of market share in both debt and equity assetsdown 332/275bps since Mar-19 to 7.5/6.8%we believe that post ownership change, NAM stands to benefit from increased credibility to raise HNI/institutional capital. We expect the company to focus on improving investment return performance and gradually recoup part of its lost market share, although this journey would neither be easy nor inexpensive. We expect NAM to post an FY21-23E revenue/PAT CAGR of 13.7/15.8% and retain a REDUCE rating with TP of Rs 280 i.e. at 36x (20% discount to HDFCAMC's multiple) FY22E NOPLAT + cash and investments. Any signs of improving performance and market share will be key re-rating drivers for the stock. Crompton Consumer: Crompton's 1QFY21 revenue was slightly lower than estimates, declining by 47% YoY vs our estimated figure of 41% YoY. At the same time, there was a beat in EBITDA by 10% despite our estimate being higher than consensus'. Efficient cost control by the company has supported its margin in the current crisis. ECD revenue/EBIT decline was 44% YoY (better than Havells and Orient Electic). ECD saw a sequential recovery as May was down by 30% while June was down only 10% YoY. Some categories like agri pumps, geysers, appliances and mixer-grinders recorded strong growth in June. Lighting saw revenue/EBIT dip by 57/61% YoY. The B-C pick-up was healthy (9% YoY growth in June) while B-B is gradually improving. Stability in pricing in B-C lighting is supporting the segment's margin, which deteriorated in...

Hair oils contribute 62% of domestic sales. The category is saturated and major brands are only growing by gaining market share from unorganised sector.

MRCO seems cautiously optimistic on medium term prospects led by market share gain across portfolio and strong growth in Foods and Bangladesh. Although some of the trends like double digit volume growth in edible oils and Oats and significant pressure on VAHO looks temporary, some near term gains from unorganized players looks likely as MRCO looks to cut Parachute prices given moderately benign Copra price outlook. MRCO is betting big on Foods and Hygiene, however aspiration of Rs5bn sales looks stretched target. We expect margin expansion to moderate in coming quarters as ad...
