This Adani stock has turned to become a huge multibagger in 2021

This Adani stock has turned to become a huge multibagger in 2021.
by 5paisa Research Team 21/10/2021

Adani Total Gas exploded with an unreal growth of 625% year-to-date.

One of the most exceptional stocks in terms of generating huge returns for Adani Group has been none other than Adani Total Gas Ltd (ATGL). It has been a top-notch multibagger for its shareholders. If you had invested Rs 1 lakh in the stock, it would have turned out to be about Rs 7.25 lakh in just one year. This is massive wealth creation. This stock has been one of the major reasons why Gautam Adani became the second richest person in Asia.

Is the growth backed by the fundamentals?

For the six months trailing from October 21, 2021, the multibagger stock has performed poorly relative to the first half of YTD. It has generated a return of just about 20% in the last six months and that was primarily due to poor fundamental performance in Q1FY22. Net sales in Q1 stood at Rs 522 crore which witnessed a sequential decline of 15%. The net profit decreased by 4.4% sequentially to Rs 138.4 crore. For the last three months, the stock has been hovering around Rs 1400 levels.

The macroeconomic perspective

India is looking forward to adopting cleaner forms of energy among which natural gas is a popular alternative. GOI intends to increase the use of natural gas to 15% by 2030 in its fuel mix, which currently stands at about 6.2%. Without a doubt, this multibagger company is one of the largest players in the space and investors have implied huge growth opportunities in the current share price.

ATGL is developing city gas distribution (CGD) networks to supply natural gas to residential, industrial, commercial segments and also provide CNG for transport. On October 21, 2021, the stock was trading at Rs 1440, up by 3.2% as of 12:30 pm on the BSE.

Asian Paints Q2 net profit slumps 29% on surge in input costs; shares slip

by 5paisa Research Team 21/10/2021

Asian Paints Ltd on Thursday reported a steep decline in its consolidated net profit for the second quarter through September, dragged down by a big jump in its input costs.

Consolidated net profit for the July-September period decreased 29% to Rs 605.17 crore from Rs 851.90 crore in the corresponding period last year, India’s biggest paints company said.

Consolidated revenue from operations increased 32.6% to Rs 7,096.01 crore from Rs 5,350.23 crore a year earlier.

Profit was hurt by higher expenses, with the cost of materials consumed soaring 73% during the quarter to Rs 4,570 crore.

The sharp drop in quarterly profit prompted investors to dump the company’s shares. Its stock fell 5.4% to Rs 2,998 apiece on the BSE, where the benchmark Sensex was down 1% in afternoon trade.

Asian Paints Q2: Other key highlights

1) Q2 profit before depreciation, interest, tax and other income (PBDIT) decreased 28.5% to Rs 904.45 crore.

2) Q2 profit before tax decreased 27.9% to Rs 826.24 crore from Rs 1,145.52 crore.

3) Standalone revenue from operations for Q2 increased 35.9% while standalone net profit dropped 22%.

4) Total consolidated expenses jumped to Rs 6,418 crore from Rs 4,299 crore a year earlier.

5) For the six months ended September 30, consolidated revenue increased 53.3% to Rs 12,681.37 crore.

6) Consolidated net profit for the April-September period rose 10% to Rs 1,179 crore.

Asian Paints management commentary

Amit Syngle, Managing Director and CEO of Asian Paints, said steep inflation in raw material prices since the beginning of 2021 impacted gross margins across all businesses during the quarter.

“We have taken a series of price increases and would look at further price increase to mitigate the impact of this persistently high inflation and are confident that we should be able to turn this around strongly in the coming quarter,” he said.

Syngle also said that the domestic decorative business continued to move ahead on its high growth trajectory with a 34% volume growth in the quarter and strong compound growth rates over the last two years. The industrial coatings business registered strong double-digit revenue growth led by robust demand for protective coatings and uptick in the automotive sector. The home improvement business registered its highest quarterly revenue.

Performance in the international business was a mixed bag, Syngle said. While South Asian markets recorded good growth, markets in Middle East and Africa were sluggish with challenges around Covid-19 and forex availability, he added.

Keep Axis Bank on your radar!

Keep Axis Bank on your radar!
by 5paisa Research Team 21/10/2021

Axis Bank rallied almost 500 points since March 2020. It further entered into a consolidation phase forming an interesting price chart pattern. Read on to find out more.  

Post the fall in March 2020, Bank Nifty made a comeback stupendously by rallying almost 23,900 points or 148%. As a matter of fact, its trend seems to be very much bullish. Even Axis Bank, having a weightage of 12.36% in Bank Nifty, has also rallied similarly. Presently, it is consolidating in a range-bound trade forming an interesting price action chart pattern. It is forming a bullish pennant pattern.

A bullish pennant pattern is a continuation chart pattern, which is usually witnessed when a stock experiences a large upward movement, followed by a brief consolidation, before continuing its northward journey. Remember, to complete this pattern, the price needs to break out from the upper slope of the triangle with higher volumes.

Though Axis Bank is forming a bullish pennant pattern, it is incomplete. This is because it hasn’t yet broken out from the consolidation. Having said that, it indeed makes sense to keep it on your radar and watch its price action. A breakout from the consolidation likely suggests a continuation of the trend.

The Relative Strength Index (RSI) is currently at 51. Presently, it is not indicating any strength but do watch out for RSI of 65 and above. Even though the Moving Average Convergence and Divergence (MACD) is in the positive territory, is neutral.

Today, Axis Bank opened at 807.95 level, marking a high and low at 810.75 and 792.30 level, respectively. At the time of writing, the stock was trading at 795.

Top 10 Midcap Losers

Top 10 Midcap Losers
by 5paisa Research Team 21/10/2021

Mid-caps have attracted a lot of investors especially post the first leg of the rally in July and August 2021. This rally was more rewarding for those who consistently remained invested during the fall. The fall that we are referring to here is not the March 2020 fall.

Nifty Midcap 100 index was declining and underperforming Nifty 50 ever since January 2018. The wealth that it eroded from January 2018 to March 2020 was close to 11,000 points or 51%. However, since then it has surged almost 22,000 points or 209%. However, the index plunged close to 2,000 points from its all-time high of 33,243.5 in a matter of two days.

Is this fall due to uncomfortable valuations? If we look at the current Price to Earnings (P/E) of Nifty Midcap 100, then it stands at 33.86 which is quite near to its 10-year average P/E of 34.65. However, its 10-year median P/E stands at 22.32. Therefore, valuations don’t seem that stretched. However, we have curated a list of the top 10 stocks that were hit badly in this two-day fall.
