Britannia Q2- Rising prices of Palm oil caused 23% decline in Net profit?

by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

Britannia's Q2 FY22 revenue witnessed an increase of 5% YoY, as estimated. The first half of the financial year saw the company gaining more market share with primary focus on increasing their rural coverage.

The gross margin decreased by 520bps mainly due to the high input cost inflation of palm oil(54%), industrial fuel (35%) and packaging material (30%) and a total inflation of approximately 14% this quarter. Rise in input costs were mitigated to a certain extent due to the forward covers taken on commodities as well as price increases across the entire portfolio. The operating margin also witnessed a decrease of 430bps YoY to 15.5%. The employee costs increased by 14% YoY whereas the EBITDA fell by 17% YoY.

PAT decreased by 23% mainly due to lower income and higher tax and also the increased prices of the raw materials as mentioned above. The cost of materials of the company increased by 8% YoY from Rs.1,768 crore in Q2 FY21 to Rs.1,915 crore in Q2 FY22.

The major sales rose by 6% in this quarter to Rs.3,554 crore. On a 24 month basis, the company reported a growth in sales and net profit by 21% and 18% respectively. Biscuits and high protein food compose of 70% of the total sales mix of Britannia.

The long term investments of the company, mainly in market securities have decreased to Rs.9.8 billion in 2nd half of FY22.

According to the management, the commercial paper proceeds are being used for buying future covers for wheat and sugar and this in turn has led to an increase in the inventories by Rs.2.3 billion.

A price target of Rs.4000, with an estimated upside of 7.6% and a BUY call has been reported by analysts.

Eicher Motors- Q2 profits beats the estimates| 9% increase in PAT

by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

Founded in 1948,Eicher motors is a company that manufactures motorcycles and commercial vehicles worldwide.

The company reported a 9% YoY increase in profit, currently standing at Rs.373.2 crore for Q2 FY22. This increase can be attributed to the fact that the commercial vehicle sales have increased substantially whereas the Royal Enfield sales have dipped due to the ongoing semi conductor shortage. Revenue from operations increased from Rs.2,134 crore in Q2 FY21 to Rs.2,250 crore in Q2 FY22.

During Q2, Royal Enfield sold around 1,23,515 motorcycles. This is 17.2% less than the amount sold in the same quarter last year. The exports for motorcycles grew by 130% YoY this quarter. Exports are expected to be higher next quarter as shipping to cold countries starts next quarter. The company also launched a new range of motorcycles called Classic 350, which has received a positive response from the customers. There has been a minimal level of cannibalization between Meteor and Classic 350.

In contrast, the commercial vehicle segment’s joint venture with Volvo reaped a sales volume growth of a whopping 85%, from 8167 units in Q2 FY21 to 15,134 units in Q2 FY22. The company was able to grasp 34% of the market share in the LMD segment in Q2 FY22. The VECV’s revenue was up by 80% YoY, from Rs.1,753 crore in Q2 FY21 to Rs.3,153 crore in Q2 FY22. Last year a loss of Rs.7.2 crore was realized but this year it turned into a profit of Rs.18 crore.

According to the management, the current demand is much more than the available supply but price hikes are not expected as of yet. There were two price hikes in July and September 2021. The accessory sales of bikes have gone up 2 times due to high sales on the MIY app.

The EBITDA predicted for FY22 remains at 23.9%. Analysts increased the target price from Rs.2,374 to Rs.2,526 with a Neutral call.

These stocks see huge volume burst in the last leg of the trading session!

These stocks see huge volume burst in the last leg of the trading session!
by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

Dilip Buildcon, Cholamandalam Investment and Finance Company and Finolex Cables have witnessed volume burst in the last 75 minutes of the trade.

As the saying goes, the first and the last hour of each trading session is the most important and active in terms of price and volume. More so, the activity in the last hour is said to be of utmost importance because most of the pro traders and institutions are active at this time. Hence, when a stock sees a good spike in volume in the last leg of trade along with price rise it is said to be the pro and institutions have a keen interest in the stock. Market participants should keep a close watch on these stocks as they can witness good momentum in the short-medium term.

So, based on this principle we have shortlisted three stocks, which have witnessed volume burst in the last leg of trade along with price rise.

Dilip Buildcon: The stock of Dilip Buildcon was going through a massive correction phase correcting as much as 22% from its recent high before rising 7.62% today. It took the support of its 50-DMA before bouncing back. The stock traded firmly in green throughout the day. But what’s interesting to note is that the volume witnessed during the last 75 minutes was approximately 67% of the total daily volume. The stock’s daily volume was much greater than the 10-day and 30-day average volume. Traders shouldn’t miss an opportunity in this stock.

Cholamandalam Investment and Finance Company:  The NBFC stock gained 3.58% in the trading session that ended Friday. The stock is going strong for the last few days and closed at its record high. Most of today’s action came in the last one hour where it shot up around 2%. Above-average volumes have been recorded in the past few trading sessions. We suggest you keep this stock on your radar.

Finolex Cables: Finolex cables rose a decent 1.63% today owing to the bulls that supported the stock at lower levels during the last hour. The stock, as a matter of fact, was trading in red in the latter half of the session but then it shot up as much as 2% in the last 75 minutes. It is currently trading near a stiff resistance level of 510-515 which is tested multiple times. The volumes have increased in the past two trading sessions indicating more participation from the market participants. The stock can be an attractive trade for days to come.

Endurance Technologies forms bearish engulfing candle, signals a possible trend reversal

Endurance Technologies forms bearish engulfing candle, signals a possible trend reversal
by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

The stock of Endurance Technologies has formed an inverted hammer candlestick pattern as on the weekend of April 09, 2020, and thereafter marked the sequence of higher tops and higher bottoms. The stock has witnessed over 250% upside from the low of Rs 564.50, which was registered on the weekend of April 20, 2021. The stock has gained nearly 35% from year to date.

However, on the weekly chart, the stock has formed a Bearish Engulfing candlestick pattern, which suggests a pause in the uptrend. The bearish engulfing candlestick pattern is considered to be a bearish reversal pattern, usually occurring at the top of an uptrend or near a potential resistance zone. This pattern consists of two real bodies of opposite colours. The second candle’s body completely engulfs the previous day's body.

Along with this bearish formation, the stock has slipped below its weekly pivot and short-term moving averages, i.e. 8-day EMA and 13-day EMA levels. Among the momentum indicators, the 14-period daily RSI has cooled off after touching the 65-66 zone and, at present, its reading is 52.83. The RSI is trading below its 9-day average and it is in falling mode, which indicates further downside momentum. The weekly RSI has also given a bearish crossover. On the weekly chart, the fast stochastic is trading below its slow stochastic line.

It has also given the sell signal in Martin Pring’s long-term KST set-up. Moreover, a negative divergence was also spotted at the daily and weekly time frame on the 14-period RSI. A negative divergence occurs when the price is making a higher high, while the RSI forms a lower high.

These abovementioned facts create doubt about the continuity of the current uptrend and the possibility of short-term correction cannot be ruled out. In case, the stock sustains below the current week low of Rs 1810 and trades convincingly below this level then, there is a high probability of the current week high point of Rs 1989 becoming a temporary top for the stock.

Hindalco Q2 profit jumps nine times, but not just due to high aluminium margins

by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

Hindalco Industries Ltd on Friday reported a staggering jump of 783%, or 8.8 times, in second-quarter profit from a year earlier, thanks in part to higher sales and a decade-high margin on its India aluminium business.

The copper and aluminium arm of Aditya Birla Group posted a consolidated profit after tax of Rs 3,417 crore for the three months through September 2021, up from just Rs 387 crore during the same quarter last year. 

On a sequential basis, net profit was up 23% from Rs 2,787 crore in the April-June quarter.

The company said profit climbed because of favourable macroeconomic environment, improved product mix, higher sales volumes and better operational efficiencies. Higher margins in its aluminium business helped, too.

Hindalco’s North American aluminium unit Novelis achieved an adjusted EBITDA per ton of $571 in the second quarter, up 165 from $493 a year earlier. Its India aluminium division’s EBITDA margin reached more than a decade high of 42%, Hindalco said.

But these weren’t the only reasons for the sharp jump in net profit. The bottom line received a boost also because the year-earlier quarter had recorded a loss of Rs 1,398 crore on the sale of assets in the US.

Hindalco unit Novelist had sold its automotive aluminium body sheet plant in the US to private equity firm American Industrial Partners for net cash of about $171 million, roughly half the asset’s book value, to receive anti-trust approval for a $2.8 billion deal to acquire Aleris. This loss had dragged down Hindalco’s consolidated profit in the July-September quarter of 2020. And the absence of any such loss this year boosted the bottom line.

As a result, profit after tax from continuing operations rose 92% to Rs 3,427 crore from Rs 1,785 crore a year earlier.

Hindalco Q2: Other highlights

1) Consolidated revenue jumped 53% to Rs 47,665 crore from Rs 31,237 crore a year earlier.

2) Record quarterly EBITDA at Rs 8,048 crore, up 56% YoY from Rs 5,171 crore.

3) Adjusted EBITDA for Novelis was up 22% to $553 million on higher volume and favourable product mix.

4) EBITDA for India copper unit rose 45.4% to Rs 352 crore.

5) India aluminium unit records EBITDA of Rs 3,247 crore, up 173% YoY.

6) India aluminium revenue up 63% YoY to Rs 7,812 crore on higher global prices and sales.

7) Net debt falls to at Rs 48,011 crore from Rs 58,001 crore.

Hindalco management commentary

Hindalco managing director Satish Pai said that the company reported “standout performances” across all business segments and that the record-breaking numbers were “an affirmation of our fully integrated business model, which powers our performance in both upstream and downstream markets.”

Pai also said that the company’s Indian aluminium business achieved an EBITDA margin of 42%, which was close to the global record. 

He further said that the copper business “delivered the highest-ever quarterly sales in Q2, with both smelters running optimally” to meet robust market demand.

Novelis achieved a record EBITDA per ton “driven by higher volumes and favourable metal prices,” Pai said.
