Expert Opinion

Wordmark of Tata Steel

We can’t be blamed for our craving for stock tips and expert opinion even if their predicting ability is not proven superior. For example, The Hindu Businessline, on 29.08.2010, predicted that “Tata Steel fell almost 2 per cent last week. The near-term trend is down for the stock. As long as the stock stays below Rs 530, the near-term view is negative. Traders can initiate a short position with stop at Rs 530.Near-term targets for the stock are at Rs 490 and Rs 480. Key resistances above Rs 530 are at Rs 540 and Rs 550. The medium-term trend is still down. Significant medium-term support for the stock is at Rs 450”.

Result : On Monday Tata Steel gained 3.41% and closed at Rs. 527.95.

Lesson : Ignore Experts.

SEBI nay change Retail Investor's Definition

Securities and Exchange Board of India

Image via Wikipedia

The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is planning to enhance the maximum investment limit for retail individual investors in public issues from Rs 1,00,000 to Rs 2,00,000. In a discussion paper floated by the market regulator, SEBI has argued that “retail individual investors, who have the capacity and appetite to apply for securities worth above Rs 1,00,000 were constrained from doing so because of the Rs 1,00,000 limit.”

The discussion paper also contends that since 35 per cent of the public issue is to be allocated to retail investors, in case of large public issues – with issue size in the range of Rs 4,000-6,000 crore -- the limit of Rs 1,00,000 would mean that the issue has to receive a minimum of 1,50,000 to 2,00,000 applications from retail category. “This could be a daunting task considering that in case of well oversubscribed issues, the number of applications received from Retail Individual. Investors was in the range of 35,000 to 70,000,” it says.

It further observed that the rate of inflation in India has increased from about 4 per cent in 2005, when the Rs 1,00,000 limit was fixed, to about 12 per cent currently. In the same period, the BSE Sensex has risen from about 8,000 points to about 18,000 points, meaning that retail investors now buy a lesser number of securities with Rs 1,00,000 than they would buy with the same amount in 2005.

Prior to 2005, retail investors could apply for shares only up to Rs 50,000. Later, it was increased to Rs 1,00,000 in March 2005.

SEBI has sought comments/suggestions from public on the proposed changes on or before September 3, 2010.

Buy Take Solution Ltd., : Nirmal Bang

Château Le Fy

Image via Wikipedia

Nirmal Bang believe that TAKE’s net sales will grow at a CAGR of 24.6% over a next two years whereas net profit is expected to grow at a higher CAGR of 46.4% during the same period, on account of increase in demand of its products and services with the revival of global economies and expanding portfolio of company’s products and services to capture the market. They expect the company to earn an EPS of Rs.5.05 in FY 2011 and Rs. 5.79 in FY 2012. At the CMP of Rs. 39 per share, TAKE is currently trading at a PE of 7.73x FY11E and 6.73x FY12E EPS and looks very attractive. The company has historically traded at a PE multiple in the range of 9.0x-10.0x (as shown in the PE Band below) except when market conditions were bad. Therefore, we believe that TAKE should be valued on a PE multiple of 10.0x. Based on our EPS of Rs. 5.05 for FY 2011 and a target multiple of 10.0x we arrive at target of Rs. 50. Consequently, we recommend a BUY rating on the stock with a target price of Rs. 50, indicating a potential upside of 28.2%.

Deepak Fertilizers and Petrochemicals Limited (DFPCL) reported a 45.7 yoy growth in net sales to Rs 347.3 crore and a 34.3% growth in PAT to Rs 52.2 crore. The OPM margin grew an impressive 260 bps to 26.4%. Going forward we expect DFPCL to continue to maintain its growth on the back of improved capacity utilizations and the ramp up of production from its new TAN capacity expansion should significantly enhance profitability over the next couple of years.

DFPCL is currently quoting at a PE of 5.8 x its FY2012 earnings. Considering the ample availability of natural gas, price stability and ramping up of production across most business segments, we expect steady revenue and profitability growth over the coming years. We upgrade our price target to Rs 195 (target PE of 7.5x FY2012 earnings) representing an upside of 29.1% over a period 12-15 months.
