Petronet LNG reported earnings revenue growth of 25.8% QoQ despite volumes suffering in Q2FY22

by 5paisa Research Team 11/11/2021

Petronet LNG (PLNG) reported Q2FY22 earning revenue of Rs. 108131mn, up 73.4% YoY and 25.8% QoQ, EBITDA of Rs. 12.9bn, down -4.9% YoY, and up 23% QoQ on account of high marketing margin (2x YoY), while the decline was due to modest volumes of 4.6MMT down 5.5% YoY which a result of high spot LNG prices which jumped ~5x YoY and covid-led restrictions.

The spot LNG prices are now trading ~50% higher QoQ at ~US $30/mmbtu. While spot LNG prices remained high, PLNG earned a higher marketing margin of USD6.9/mmbtu which is ~2x YoY. 

Dahej volume fell 7.4% YoY led by a modest terminal utilisation of 99%, but Kochi volumes rose 36% YoY with a terminal utilisation of 23%. The company expects to complete Dahej expansion to 20mtpa by FY24 and to 22.5mtpa by FY27. Kochi sales are likely to double at peak utilisation of 35% once customers fully offtake gas along the recently commissioned Kochi-Mangalore pipeline. The Kochi-Bangalore pipeline, upon fully commissioned completion by FY24, will increase Kochi’s utilisation to ~60%. The company is also working towards adding two tanks at Dahej at Rs. 12bn and a jetty at Rs. 17bn by FY25, which will be value-accretive and incur capex of Rs. 17bn. The company has tied up with Gujarat Gas to set up five LNG stations between Mumbai and Delhi highways and has set up four LNG stations with IOC and one each with IGL and Sabarmati Gas. PLNG declared a special interim dividend of INR7/share.

PLNG is likely to incur Rs. 10bn in FY22 as it plans to install 1,000 LNG stations over the next five years, which would incur capex of Rs. 80bn. This will not only increase its LNG demand, but also overall utilisation. 

The key factors that may impact the future outlook of the company could be the current annual escalation of 5% in re-gasification charges which may not persist after a while if they begin to impact the demand, prolonged gap between long-term RasGas and spot-LNG prices resulting in lowering of term LNG volumes, high gas prices which may lower demand for R-LNG making it unviable for PLNG to source more long term supplies and increase in domestic gas production and start of other LNG terminals in the country could lead to lower utilisation for PLNG.

Zee Entertainment Q2 profit jumps as sales rise, margins expand

by 5paisa Research Team 11/11/2021

Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd, which has recently been in the news owing to a controversy around its proposed acquisition by Sony India, on Thursday reported a 187% increase in its profit after tax for the second quarter. 

The company clocked a net profit of Rs 270.2 crore for the July-September period compared with Rs 94 crore in the second quarter of last fiscal year.

The bottom line was boosted also by a lower one-time expense of Rs 140 crore during the second quarter compared with Rs 971 crore a year earlier. Profit before exceptional items rose 41% to Rs 373 crore from Rs 264.5 crore. The exceptional item related to the sale of its digital publishing business to Rapidcube Technologies Pvt. Ltd last year.

The company’s overall operating revenue for the second quarter came in at Rs 1,978.8 crore, up 14.9% from the previous year’s figure of Rs 1,722.7 crore. 

Its earnings before income tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) grew from Rs 313.6 crore in the second quarter of 2020 to Rs 412.1 core. Its EBITDA margins also rose from 18.2% to 20.8%. 

Zee, like most other media houses, was reeling under the impact of the recession in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic last year. However, its fortunes turned around for the better as the economy reopened. 

Zee Entertainment Q2: Other highlights

1) Domestic advertising revenue grew 20.1% year-on-year and 18.9% on a quarter-on-quarter basis to Rs 48.7 crore.

2) Revenues from subscription were down 1.5% on a year-on-year basis to Rs 87.8 crore. 

3) Revenue from other sales and services for the quarter came in at Rs 13.5 crore.

4) Programming and marketing costs jumped because of new launches investments on its online platform ZEE5.

5) Zee Entertainment released 13 original movies and TV shows during the quarter.

Zee Entertainment management commentary 

The company said its business had been negatively impacted due to the economic downturn caused as a result of the coronavirus pandemic last year. Therefore, the results for the second quarter of this financial year are “not strictly comparable” to those of the same period last year, it added. 

Zee also said that owing to the pandemic it incurred additional costs of Rs 3.64 crore during the second quarter and Rs 30.7 crore for the half year ended September 30.

Chart Busters: Top trading set-ups to watch out on Friday

Chart Busters: Top trading set-ups to watch out on Friday
by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

The benchmark index, Nifty lost 143.60 points or 0.80% during today's trading session. However, from the days' low, the index has recovered almost 75 points. The price action has formed a bearish candle with a lower shadow. The market breadth is negative as 1207 declines and only 787 advances.

Here are the top trading set-ups to watch out for on Friday.

Carborundum Universal:  The stock has formed a spinning top candlestick pattern as of September 14, 2021, and thereafter witnessed correction. The correction is halted near the 50-day EMA level. The stock has formed a strong base near the 50-day EMA level and initiated its northward journey.

On Thursday, the stock has given downward sloping trendline breakout on the daily chart along with relatively higher volume. With this trendline breakout, the ADX, which shows the strength of the trend, turned upside and +DI surged above ADX. Currently, the stock is trading above its short and long-term moving averages. These averages are in a rising trajectory. The relative strength index (RSI), which is a momentum indicator surged above the 60 mark and is in rising mode. The momentum indicator MACD line has crossed above the signal line, which resulted in the histogram turning positive.

Considering the robust technical structure of the stock we believe it is likely to touch new highs. On the upside, the prior swing high of Rs 951.95 will act as resistance for the stock. While on the downside, the 20-day EMA will act as strong support for the stock.

Parag Milk Foods: Considering the daily chart, the stock has given a horizontal trendline breakout. This breakout was confirmed by above 50-days average volume. Additionally, the stock has formed an opening bullish marubozu candlestick pattern on breakout day, which indicates extreme bullishness.

Currently, the stock is meeting Daryl Guppy’s multiple moving averages set up rules as it is trading above both the short and long term moving averages. The daily RSI is in bullish territory and it is in rising mode. On the weekly chart, the RSI is surged above the 60 mark and above its prior swing high. The MACD line just crossed the signal line, and the histogram became green. Moreover, Martin Pring’s long term KST set-up has also given a buy signal.

Technically, all the factors are currently aligned in support of the bulls. Hence, we would advise the traders to be with a bullish bias. On the upside, the prior 52-week high of Rs 157.80, will act as minor resistance. The 8-day EMA will act as strong support for the stock.

by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

Tata Steel Ltd, India’s largest steel company by revenue, posted better-than-expected results for the quarter ended September 30 with profit coming ahead of what analysts had projected while sales matched street estimates.

Tata Steel’s share price has more than tripled over the last 12 months to hit a peak in August and has corrected since then. It was down 1.1% and was quoting at Rs 1,284.6 apiece on the BSE in a weak Mumbai market on Friday.

The company’s results were declared after trading stopped for the day on Thursday.

8) Consolidated deliveries declined 6.8% YoY but rose 3.9% to 7.39 million tonnes.

9) Revenue at Tata Steel Europe increased 11% QoQ and 50% YoY to £2.1 billion in Q2 FY22

10) EBITDA at Tata Steel Europe jumped 2.2 times QoQ to £328 million. This translates to EBITDA per tonne of £153.

Tata Steel management commentary

TV Narendran, CEO and managing director, said Tata Steel delivered strong results across key regions in the seasonally weaker quarter. He said steel deliveries in India expanded 11% despite a contraction in demand.

Performance in key segments such as auto was robust despite the sector being impacted by the chip shortage while European operations also delivered robust performance underpinned by strong improvement in realizations, he said.

“We are watchful of the elevated coal prices and high energy cost as key risks to margins going forward,” he added.

Koushik Chatterjee, executive director and chief financial officer, said the operating cash flows continue to be strong despite working capital pressure due to price effect on coal price increase in recent months.

“We signed and closed the divestment of our 100% holding in NatSteel Holdings in this quarter to realise around Rs 1,200 crore that resulted in a realised gain of Rs 720 crore for the quarter,” he said.

“As part of our enterprise strategy, we continue to deploy the free cash flows for de-leveraging the balance sheet with Rs 11,424 crore of debt repayment in the first half of the current financial year and are targeting additional, aggressive deleveraging in the second half as well,” Chatterjee added.

Pancake Games token skyrockets over 1600% in just 24-hours!

Pancake Games token skyrockets over 1600% in just 24-hours!
by 5paisa Research Team 12/11/2021

The movement is above 1600% in the last 24-hours and is currently trading at USD 0.0000201.

Let’s move down the memory lane, remember when bottle caps weren’t an environmental scourge? As a kid, we collected them, played with them, and even traded them. The bottle lid was made of corrugated metal with a natural cork insert that sealed the glass bottle.

But, fast-forward the collection of bottle caps might be out of fashion, and the new fashion or trend is for collecting the cryptocurrency. Interestingly, the collection of cryptocurrencies is not restricted to the kids like it used to be for bottle caps, but it’s for all categories of ages and investors. This frenzy of collecting cryptocurrency has reached such a height that some cryptocurrencies are witnessing a movement of 10-20%, and this is just a cakewalk. However, in the last 24-hours we have seen some cryptocurrencies moving not 10, 100 or 200%, but a whopping over 1000%!

Yes, a mindboggling 1000%, you’ve heard it right and this is not even a typo mistake. Pancake Games (GCAKE) has zoomed over 1600% in just the last 24-hours. To be precise, the movement is above 1620.75% in the last 24-hours and is currently trading at USD 0.0000201.

What is Pancake Games?  

Pancake Games will give you the answer and provide information and tools to let users have an exclusive experience with Blockchain games. Pancake Games is an intelligent way to play the Blockchain game. Interestingly, by holding a token called GCAKE, users will increase their chances of winning various rewards. By staking GCAKE, for example, users will be able to receive priority for exclusive NFTs, pre-order new games, etc.

As per the pancake games website, it is mentioned that a total of 10 trillion tokens (GCAKE) are in supply and it has also been mentioned on the website that there will not be any additional issuing of GCAKE, so the total supply will not increase. In addition, with the burn mechanism at an unprecedented rate, GCAKE will be deflated in the short and long term.
