Titan shatters market estimates as Q2 profit soars 270%

by 5paisa Research Team 27/10/2021

Titan Company Ltd on Wednesday reported a steep 270% jump in consolidated net profit for the second quarter, as demand for its key products from eyewear to watches and jewellery strongly recovered.

The Tata Group company said it posted a net profit of Rs 641 crore for the July-September period from Rs 173 crore a year earlier. That exceeded analysts’ forecasts of a profit between Rs 530-580 crore.

Net profit for the second quarter was also far greater than the Rs 20 crore it earned in the first quarter (April-June) when India was hammered by a devastating second wave of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Indeed, demand postponement triggered by the second wave in avenues like gift purchases, weddings, and investments in gold recorded a strong comeback in the quarter through September.

The maker of Fastrack watches and Tanishq jewellery said its revenue from operations soared 75% to Rs 7,243 crore for the second quarter from Rs 4,127 crore in the corresponding period last year. Growth was led by the jewellery division, which accounts for more than four-fifths of its total revenue.

Ahead of the results announcement, shares of Titan closed flat at Rs 2,460.35 apiece on the BSE. The shares have fallen 8% since touching a high of Rs 2,678 apiece on October 18 but have still more than doubled from the one-year low in November last year.

Titan Q2: Other highlights

1) Jewellery division recorded revenue of Rs 6,106 crore for Q2, up 77% versus Rs 3,446 crore a year earlier.

2) Jewellery division clocked earnings before interest and tax of Rs 793 crore for Q2 versus Rs 285 crore.

3) The watches and wearables business recorded sales of Rs 687 crore, up 72% from Rs 400 crore earlier.

4) Eyewear business generated income of Rs 160 crore, compared with Rs 94 crore in the same period last year.

5) The watches and wearables business recorded EBIT of Rs 92 crore versus a loss of Rs 4 crore a year earlier.

6) Eyewear business registered EBIT of Rs 37 crore versus Rs 9 crore a year earlier.

Titan management commentary

CK Venkataraman, managing director at Titan, said the strong growth this quarter was underpinned by demand recovery being witnessed in all segments of the company.

He also said that the stores were fully operational, returning to pre-pandemic normalcy in most parts of the country with continued focus on health and safety of our customers, business partners and employees.

Venkataraman also said that Titan’s store expansions gained traction during the quarter, which was partially disrupted in the pandemic period. “Our strong digital presence combined with trusted offline experience gives a positive outlook for the overall performance of the Company for the rest of the fiscal year,” he added.

Bajaj Auto speeds past forecasts with 22% revenue growth in Q2; to set up finance arm

by 5paisa Research Team 27/10/2021

Bajaj Auto Ltd posted better-than-expected revenue for the quarter ended September 30, aided by high growth of intra-city vehicles and strong exports of two-wheelers making up for a decline in demand domestically.

The company’s revenue rose 22.4% to Rs 8,768 crore for the quarter as against Rs 7,156 crore in the same period last year. On a sequential basis, revenue increased 18.6% quarter on quarter. Analysts were expecting double-digit growth but the media projections were around 15-16% rise in sales.

Meanwhile, even as the company faced higher cost of raw materials, Bajaj Auto posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 2,040 crore and a profit of Rs 1,539 crore before exceptional item. This compares with a profit of Rs 1,194 crore in the second quarter of last year.

Bajaj Auto International Holdings BV, a 100% subsidiary of the company, held a 47.99% stake in KTM AG. The arm swapped a 46.50% stake in KTM AG for a 49.90% stake in Pierer Bajaj AG and booked a gain in fair value of Rs 501.23 crore as a one-time exceptional item during the quarter.

On a standalone basis, net profit rose 12% to Rs 1,275 crore year-on-year.

Bajaj Auto’s shares, which had previously corrected from a high of Rs 4,365 apiece, closed at Rs 3,777.45 on Wednesday, down 0.38% in a weak Mumbai market. The company declared results after trading hours.

Bajaj Auto Q2: Other highlights

1) Overall volume growth was pegged at 9%, in line with expectations.

2) Domestic two-wheeler sales declined 11% but three-wheeler sales rocketed 88% YoY;

3) Exports of two-wheelers rose 31% while that of three-wheelers increased 8%.

4) The firm faced an increase in the cost of raw materials, which was partially offset by an increase in prices.

5) EBITDA margins declined from 18.2% in Q2 FY21 to 16.4% last quarter but improved on a sequential basis.

6) As on September 30, after payment of dividend of Rs 4,051 crore, surplus cash and cash equivalents stood at Rs 17,526 crore as against Rs 19,097 crore as on June 30.

New initiative

The company said Wednesday its board has approved a plan to create a new non-banking finance arm that would be a captive wholly owned subsidiary. The new company will finance vehicles and, in particular, the two-wheelers, three-wheelers and light four-wheelers manufactured and/or marketed by Bajaj Auto or its related firms.

This could be a big move to deploy extra cash of the company. The name of the proposed company is Bajaj Auto Consumer Finance.

Interestingly, the move would pitch it against Bajaj Finserv, a financial services firm run by Sanjiv Bajaj, brother of Rajiv Bajaj, who runs Bajaj Auto.

L&T adjusted profit climbs 56% in Q2 as order inflows rise, margins improve

by 5paisa Research Team 27/10/2021

Larsen & Toubro Ltd registered a sharp jump in adjusted profit for the second quarter, helped by higher sales and an improvement in earnings margins across some of its key businesses.

India’s biggest engineering and construction company said adjusted consolidated profit after tax rose 56% from a year earlier to Rs 1,723 crore for the three months through September. Adjusted profit excludes exceptional items and discontinued operations.

After including one-off items, consolidated net profit for the second quarter slumped 67% to Rs 1,819 crore from Rs 5,520 crore during the year-ago period, when it recorded a gain on the sale of its electrical and automation business to French company Schneider Electric.

L&T said the adjusted profit was driven by higher earnings of its software services business and improved margins from the projects and manufacturing portfolio as the coronavirus-induced stress in previous periods waned.

L&T also said that revenue from operations rose 12% to Rs 34,772 crore from Rs 31,034 crore in the corresponding quarter of last year. 

The company said it recorded a rebound in orders during the July-September period. During the second quarter, it bagged orders worth Rs 42,140 crore. This is 50% more than the figure it had clocked in the same period last year.

The EBITDA margin of the infrastructure segment, the biggest revenue generator for L&T, widened to 8.3% during the quarter ended September 30, 2021 from 6.4% a year earlier.

The EBITDA margin of the IT and technology services business, the second-biggest contributor to total revenue, expanded marginally to 23.3% from 23.2.%.

The hydrocarbon segment’s EBITDA margin narrowed a little, to 8.3% from 8.5%, but it secured orders valued at Rs 14,503 crore during the second quarter compared with just Rs 99 crore a year earlier.

L&T Q2: Other highlights

1) Consolidated order book at the end of the September was Rs 3.3 lakh crore, of which 23% was from overseas.

2) During Q2, 52% of the orders were international. Those amounted to Rs 22,116 crore.

3) Infrastructure segment received orders worth Rs 12,108 crore in Q2, down 17% over the year-ago period.

4) Power segment recorded order inflow of Rs 143 crore, reflecting stagnation of fossil fuel power plant prospects.

5) The heavy engineering segment recorded order inflow of Rs 648 crore, up 101%.

6) The IT and technology services business recorded customer revenue of Rs 7,876 crore, up 28%.

L&T commentary

The company said that with the progressive weakening of the second Covid-19 wave and sustained vaccination efforts, the overall business environment is looking more positive and that this should lead to the Indian economy registering good growth in the medium term. 

“Various high frequency indicators such as GST collections, auto sales, power consumption, import-export data indicate a sustained economic recovery,” L&T said. 

The engineering company said its focus remained on profitably executing its large projects, even as it looks to take advantage of the tailwinds and growth momentum in sectors such as IT. 

L&T also said that it is looking to optimise costs by automation and greater use of digital technologies, even as it looks to divest non-core assets in a phased manner and improve its working capital management.

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

Chart Busters: Top trading set-ups to watch out for on Thursday
by 5paisa Research Team 28/10/2021

On Wednesday, the benchmark index Nifty has opened flat and mostly traded in a narrow range of 83 points. However, the last hour of trading sessions witnessed a fall of nearly 136 points. The Nifty index has closed at 18210.95 with a loss of 57.45 points or 0.31%. The price action has formed a bearish candle. The Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 has outperformed the benchmark indices on Wednesday. The advance-decline ratio was in the favour of advancers.

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

Minda Corporation: Considering the daily chart, the stock has given a downward sloping trendline resistance breakout. This breakout was confirmed by above 50-days average volume. Additionally, the stock has formed a sizeable bullish candle on breakout day which adds strength to the breakout. The stock is trading above its important short to long-term moving averages i.e. 20, 50, 100 and 200 DMA. It is also in a rising trajectory.

Interestingly, the daily RSI has also given downward sloping trendline resistance breakout. Currently, daily RSI is quoting at 64.70 and it is in rising mode. The weekly RSI has also surged above the 60 mark for the first time after August 2021. The MACD line just crossed the signal line, and the histogram became green. Moreover, it has also given the buy signal in Martin Pring’s long-term KST set-up. On the daily timeframe, ADX is 12.35 and suggests that the trend is yet to be developed. Directional indicators continue in the ‘buy’ mode as +DI continues above –DI.

In a nutshell, the stock has registered a bullish breakout along with volume confirmation. On the upside, the level of Rs 148 will act as minor resistance. While on the downside, the 8-day EMA will act as strong support for the stock.

K.P.R. Mill: Majorly, the stock is displaying a bullish trend as it is trading above its short and long-term moving averages. These averages are in the desired sequence, which suggests the trend is strong. For the last 22 trading sessions, the stock is trading in a falling channel. Currently, it is on verge of giving the channel breakout on the daily chart. On Wednesday, the stock has touched the upper trendline of the falling channel. On Wednesday, the stock has seen robust volume above the 50-days average volume. This shows the accumulation before the actual breakout happen. Daily RSI is trading above 50 levels, indicating a bullish setup for the stock. The fast stochastic is also trading above its slow stochastic line.

Going ahead, the stock is on verge of seeing a trendline breakout. If it moves above the Rs 482-Rs 485 zone, then we may see a sharp upside in the stock. On the downside, the 20-day EMA will act as strong support, which it is currently quoting at Rs 449 level.
