Cognizant: With Elliott Out, Will Growth Focus Be Back To The Detriment Of Peers? NBIE Values your patronageThe March 2018 quarter US SEC filings of Elliott Capital Management indicate that it has exited its holding in Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) completely. Elliott had taken a 4% stake in CTS in the December quarter of 2016 and had exerted pressure on the company to embark on a substantial capital return policy in February 2017 (first dividend in its history, US$3.4bn stock buyback over two years till 2018, 75% of US FCF to be used for capital return in 2019 and beyond) and also to focus on growing its non-GAAP EBIT margin from 19%-20% that it held for about two decades to 22% by CY19.

The focus on increasing margins had led CTS to trim costs (including a voluntary retirement scheme or VRS for senior employees), a rejig of its digital business,...

Cement Sector- 4QFY18 Result Review- Realisation Gain Offsets Cost Escalation, But Sustainability Is Key
Nirmal Bang Institutional
Realisation Gain Offsets Cost Escalation, But Sustainability Is Key We have reviewed the March 2018 quarterly earnings performance of 12 cement companies under our coverage universe and made an attempt to measure the key trends. We have been positively surprised (with our estimates beaten) by realisation gains, by north based companies. Realisation gain on an average was ~7.5% (of the 12 companies under our coverage) driven by higher exposure to the western region (Gujarat) like Sanghi Industries (SNGI) and JK Lakshmi Cement (JKLC). This was followed by strong price gains in Central India as indicated by the performance of HeidelbergCement (HEIM) with a gain of ~10% YoY. These gains were partly because of change in the accounting policy and partly due to a weak base in 4QFY17...

RBI reversed its earlier Aug'17 rate cut, by hiking the repo rate by 25bps to 6.25% and maintaining its neutral stance. Reverse repo stands at 6.0% and MSF at 6.5%. RBI has turned relatively more hawkish by recalibrating inflation projection for H2FY19 by 40bps to 4.7%. Although some of the underlying inflationary risks like rising commodity prices have materialized earlier than anticipated, RBI is increasingly concerned about core CPI (ex-HRA). Even with a 25bps rate hike, the stance is still not one of tightening. In our view, this rate hike could lead to a tightening stance if inflation risks accentuate along with...
