Sun Pharma tops market forecasts as Q2 profit rises 13%

by 5paisa Research Team 02/11/2021

Sun Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd reported an increase of almost 13% in its consolidated net profit for the second quarter, as costs rose at a slower pace than sales and tax expenses fell.

India’s biggest drugmaker said consolidated net profit for the July-September period grew to Rs Rs 2,047 crore from Rs 1,813 crore in the same quarter last year. However, profit was up 29% compared with the adjusted earnings of the second quarter last year. Sequentially, profit jumped by a fourth from Rs 1,444 crore in April-June.

Consolidated revenue for the second quarter climbed 12.5% to at Rs 9,626 crore from Rs 8,553 crore in the July-September 2020 quarter. However, revenue slipped sequentially from Rs 9,719 crore in the first quarter of the current financial year.

Sun Pharma managed to keep costs under control with total expenses rising 9.7% from a year earlier to Rs 7,562 crore in the second quarter. Its tax expenses fell to Rs 198 crore from 257 crore a year earlier.

Both revenue and profit came ahead of estimates by most brokerage houses. For instance, Motilal Oswal had expected consolidated revenue at Rs 9,270 crore and a profit after tax of Rs 1,780 crore. Edelweiss had projected revenue at Rs 9,480 crore and net profit at Rs 1,623 crore.

Similarly, BOB Capital Markets had expected revenue of Rs 9,426 crore and a profit of Rs 1,658 crore.

Sun Pharma Q2: Other highlights

1) Standalone profit jumped to Rs 809 crore from Rs 223.7 crore during the second quarter last year.

2) On a sequential basis, the bottom line looked even better as it had recorded a loss of Rs 138.28 crore in Q1.

3) Standalone revenue rose to Rs 4,143.5 crore from Rs 3,531 crore a year earlier and Rs 3,665 crore in Q1.

4) Consolidated India sales at Rs 3,187.8 crore, up 26% over same quarter last year.

5) US finished dosage sales at $361 million, growth of 8% over Q2 last year.

6) Emerging markets sales grow 16% to $243 million; Rest of World sales rise 5% to $188 million.

7) Consolidated EBITDA at Rs 2,560.8 crore, up 21% over Q2 last year, with EBITDA margin of 26.8%.

Sun Pharma management commentary

Dilip Shanghvi, Managing Director of Sun Pharma, said the company sustained the positive momentum in the second quarter with a top-line growth of 13%, driven by a broad-based growth across multiple geographies.

“Our global specialty business has grown by 43% over Q2 last year. Ilumya has grown both YoY and sequentially,” he said, referring to the treatment of plaque psoriasis in adult patients.

Shanghvi also said that Sun Pharma’s India business continues to do well with a growth of 26% YoY. “We remain steadfast in our focus on growing our overall business and simultaneously strengthening our global specialty portfolio. The recent launch of Winlevi in US and Ilumya in Canada is a step forward in this direction,” he said.

What does the history suggest about equity returns in November?

What does the history suggest about equity returns in November?
by 5paisa Research Team 02/11/2021

In this article, we will try to find how stock market participants have behaved in the month of November.

Human beings are a creature of habit and repetition. Many things that happen in our lives follow a cyclical basis. And these cycles can greatly affect the way a person thinks or feels. Even within nature, there exists a cycle, where the sun unfailingly rises in the east and then sets in the west. The moon revolves around the earth. The earth revolves around the sun.

Most of us recognize and accept the notion that our thoughts, attitudes, and emotions can change with the seasons. There is an important connection between our behaviour and the stock market as it is the ultimate arbiter of human emotion as it relates to all things financial.

Stock markets too experiences seasons or cycles. At the very least, one can make the case that there are bull seasons when the stock market advances, and bear seasons, when the stock market declines. In addition, one could argue that there are at least two or three other seasons in the stock market such as an extended trendless period.

In this article, we will try to find how stock market participants have behaved in the month of November. For this, we have taken the Sensex data since 1979 and took monthly returns every month. Out of 42 years of study, we found that 22 times in the month of November, Sensex has generated negative returns while 20 times it has generated positive returns. The average November month return for Sensex has been negative 0.54%. The average return when the Sensex gave a negative return has been negative 5.14%, whereas in the case of a positive return it has been 4.53%.

The table below shows the key stats of the last 42 years November month returns.

Max

From the above table and analysis, we can conclude that November will be a bad month for the equity market returns, as the odds are in favour of giving negative returns in November.

Top stocks with MACD crossover above the signal line

Top stocks with MACD crossover above the signal line
by 5paisa Research Team 02/11/2021

Here is the list of top stocks with a positive Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) crossover above the neutral line.

Nifty 50 after resisting at 18,000 level inched lower to end the day 40.7 points (0.23%) lower at 17,889.15. At present, Nifty 50’s immediate support is placed at 17,613, whereas its immediate resistance is at 18,342 and 18,604. Nifty 50 successfully took support on its 50-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA) depicting that the uptrend is still intact. However, its Relative Strength Index (RSI) is still trading lower to its 20-Day EMA. Also, the price is heading towards the middle line of the Bollinger band which is the 20-Day Simple Moving Average (SMA). Nifty 50 is still trading below its Parabolic SAR, indicating consolidation is not yet over. Therefore, at such times it is always wise to take stock-specific decisions.

Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is one such indicator, that will help you make better investment decisions by validating the potential breakouts. It is a trend-following momentum indicator that depicts the relationship between two moving averages of a stock’s price. In order to compute MACD, you need to subtract 26-period EMA from the 12-period EMA.

The resulting calculation is termed as MACD line. In MACD, there is also a signal line which is nothing but the nine-day EMA of the MACD. Crossover, either positive or negative, between the MACD line and the signal line can function as a trigger for buy and sell decisions. Though, traders can buy and sell stock depending upon the characteristic of the crossover but should avoid doing so. MACD can be used as an indicator that validates the breakouts or retracements.

Here is the list of top stocks having positive crossover above the neutral line.

The Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 has outperformed the benchmark indices. The Nifty Realty has gained over 3% and Nifty PSU Bank has gained 2.37%. The advance-decline ratio was in the favour of advancers for the second consecutive trading session.

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

Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail: After registering the high of Rs 276.15, the stock has witnessed minor throwback along with low volume. The throwback is halted near the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level of its prior upward move and it coincides with the 20-day EMA level. On Tuesday, the stock has given cup pattern breakout along with robust volume. The length of the cup with handle pattern was of 13-days and the depth of the pattern was over 12%.

The stock is clearly in an uptrend as it is marking higher tops and higher bottoms. All the moving averages based on trade set-ups are showing a bullish strength in the stock. Daryl Guppy’s multiple moving averages is suggesting a bullish strength in the stock. Further, now the stock is meeting Mark Minervini’s trend template rules. These two set-ups are giving a clear uptrend picture in the stock.

Momentum indicators and oscillators are also supporting the overall bullish chart structure. The daily RSI is above 70 and it is in rising mode. The trend strength indicator, Average Directional Index (ADX), is above 36, which indicates strength. The +DI is much above the -DI. This structure is indicative of the bullish strength in the stock.

In a nutshell, the stock has registered a bullish pattern breakout along with volume confirmation. On the upside, the target will place at Rs 306 level. On the downside, the 8-day EMA will act as support for the stock, which is currently placed at Rs 266 level.

Orient Electric: Considering the daily chart, the stock has given a breakout of symmetrical pattern. Further, on breakout day the volume was expanded by 7 times of 50-days average volume, which indicates important buying interest. The 50-days average volume was 4.33 lakh while today the stock has registered a total volume of 30.58 lakh. In addition, the stock has formed an opening bullish Marubozu candlestick pattern on breakout day, which indicates extreme bullishness.

Currently, the stock is trading above its short and long-term moving averages. These averages are edging higher. The stock's Relative Strength Index (RSI) has reached its highest value in the last 14-days, which is bullish. Also, it has managed to close above its prior swing high. The MACD is above the zero line and the signal line. The MACD histogram suggests bullish momentum. And most importantly, the MACD line crossed the prior swing highs.

Based on the above observations, we expect the stock to continue its upward movement and test levels of Rs 417 followed by Rs 430 in the short term.
