Craftsman Automation still a good buy? Brokerage houses predict 40.87% upside, price target of Rs.3055

by 5paisa Research Team 20/10/2021

Craftsman Automation, founded in 1986 in Coimbatore, has become one of the leading names in precision manufacturing in various fields and engineering organization.

It is expected that the demand and sales of medium and heavy commercial vehicles along with two-wheeler will increase in FY22 as there is an upward trend seen in the economic activity as well as easing of lock-down rules and this would in-turn lead to a strong economic growth. The M& HCV are estimated to show a turn for the better in FY23. Even though the scarcity of semiconductors still pose a problem and creates challenges for the passenger car productions, the slack will be taken up by growth in the other areas mentioned. Analysts expect a growth of 17% in FY22 and 24% in FY23.

Key points in Q2 report:

1. The Stellantis order won by Craftsman worth Rs.2 billion will begin at the end of FY23.

2. The company also won a first of its kind order for tractor transmissions.

3. A decision to replace machines has been made which will help in n increasing productivity and efficiency.

The Net Income of the company saw a drastic increase from Rs.367 million in FY20 to Rs.968 million in FY21. According to analysts, this uptrend is going to continue and estimated Net Income of Rs.1575 million has been estimated for FY22.

The amount of profits are also estimated to increase given the investment in newer machines which will lead to higher and more efficient productivity, and also duet to the better storage solutions implemented by the company.

A revenue growth of 54.03% was reported in the second quarter of FY22 and the revenue was 31.21% higher than the June quarter of FY22. The highest revenues were recorded in the Automotive Powertrain vertical, standing at Rs.292 crore. The PAT also rose by 118.83% YoY compared to the quarter ended September 2020.

The Earnings per share value of the company stood at Rs.23.65 as compared to Rs.11.35 in the same quarter of FY21 and RS.11.39 in the previous quarter of FY22, leading to a 107.64% QoQ uptrend. The inventory days have shown an increasing trend since FY19 and a further increase is expected by 11.67%. A higher inventory days value shows how that the company is not able to turn their inventory into sales at the rate at which it was before. This can be attributed to the pandemic and shortage of supplies currently.

Mutual funds in totality have increased their holdings from 7.64% to 8.24% in Q2 of FY22 and so have the FII and FPI.

A 74% growth in earnings as well as a 20% Revenue CAGR for FY21-23 has been predicted by analysts.

A BUY call has been given for the share of this company by many brokerage firms with the price target set at Rs.3055.

Difficult quarter for Rallis India, profit declines 31.4% QoQ

by 5paisa Research Team 20/10/2021

Rallis India, a subsidiary of Tata Chemicals, focuses on the Farm essentials vertical. Rallis is one of the top crop care companies in the country and covers more than 80% of India’s districts.

According to the Q2 FY21 results, the company reported a 32.53% YoY decline in consolidated PAT to Rs.564 million from the corresponding quarter, last year; and a 31.4% decline QoQ.

A very small growth of 0.4% was shown in the Revenue, standing at Rs.7278 million from Rs.7250 million in Q2 FY21. The EBITDA Margin fell by 420bps, from 16.1% to 12.1% which indicates that Rallis is not able to pass on the increasing costs it is facing to its customers by proportionately increasing the prices. The employee costs and other expenses have shown an increase of 13.8% and 8.4% YoY, respectively.

The shortcomings in the report can be mainly attributed to the fact that the un-seasonal and late monsoons this year, destroyed crop quality and was also not in the least favorable to agri input companies in this quarter. The seed business saw a sharp decline of 65% due to the changing patterns of cropping all over the country. The raw material problems are proving to be an additional burden on the company and preventing optimum operational efficiency and growth.

Looking on the positive side, during this September ending quarter, the company has launched three new products under the heads- crop protection and crop nutrition. Also, the Ankleshwar project of debottlenecking for two A.Is was commissioned.

After the Q2 results were announced, the share price of the company dipped sharply by 7.12% on the National Stock Exchange. It opened at Rs.287 which is at a high discount to its closing price on 19th October i.e. Rs.304.

Havells Q2 profit slips on high input costs but sales up 31%

by 5paisa Research Team 20/10/2021

Havells India Ltd, one of the largest electrical equipment and home appliance makers in the country, posted a decline in its earnings for the quarter ended September 30 even though its revenue shot up during the period.

The company said on Wednesday its consolidated net profit for the second quarter fell 7% to Rs 302 crore from Rs 326 crore in the quarter ended September 30, 2020.

This was largely due to a sharp rise in input costs that rose more than 50% during the quarter and comprised two-thirds of total expenses as against 60% in the past.

The company’s revenue from operations, however, shot up 31.6% to Rs 3,238 crore during the second quarter.

Revenue was driven by a 46% rise in sales of its mainstay cables business. Sales from the cables business, which comprises a third of total business, increased to Rs 1,144 crore from Rs 784.67 crore a year earlier.

The Lloyd Consumer business unit, which it had acquired to gain entry into consumer electrical equipment and larger appliances sector, sported 23.5% growth over the year-ago period. The Lloyd unit, which was making nominal profits previously, again slipped into the red last quarter.

Shares of Havells declined 1.35% to close at Rs 1,405.35 apiece on the BSE in a weak Mumbai market on Wednesday. Still, the shares have doubled over the past year. The company declared results after markets closed.

Havells Q2: Other key highlights

1) Sales from the lighting and fixtures business grew 32% year-on-year.

2) Sales from the electrical consumer durables unit, which comprises products like fans, rose 26% to Rs 730 crore.

3) The switchgears business recorded an increase of 21% in sales to Rs 448 crore during the quarter.

4) The electrical consumer durables wing, which is one of the more profitable units, and the cables and switchgears division posted modest growth in profit.

5) The lighting business, in contrast, posted a 47% increase in segment profit.

Havells' omnichannel strategy, rising costs

The company said that it has clocked healthy growth across business verticals and that its omnichannel strategy including online, rural, modern trade and enterprise business penetration is playing out well, adding new customers and broad-basing demand channels.

Havells also noted that there has been increased conversion in projects and the B2B segment.

On the flip side, it pointed out the increase in commodity cost remains unabated with severe escalation in a rather short period.

“Price increases have been staggered creating a lag effect on margins. However, we maintain a positive outlook on demand growth which could support margin as well,” it added.
