Diwali Stock Picks 2019 – Top 5 Investment Ideas

Diwali Picks 2019 – Top 5 Investment Ideas In the present environment of global trade wars, macro-economic uncertainty, and slowing domestic economy, we tried to discover investment ideas that can not only withstand this turbulence but will also likely be first movers when the tide turns. A stable government, aggressive policy reforms of far-reaching consequences, lower interest rate trajectory, good monsoons, stable rupee and range-bound crude oil prices are seeds for economic revival. We expect the economy to be back on track from FY21 onwards as benefits of the recent tax reforms will play out in full throttle.While identifying investment picks, we followed under mentioned rationales: Emphasis on steady businesses Top & bottom line compounding in excess of 10% for the last 5 years Healthy return ratios (ROE over 10%), low or negligible debt, and insignificant promoters’ pledge Valuation comfort with respect to fair value Performance Highlights of ‘Diwali Picks’ 2018We are pleased to highlight the performance of our Diwali picks in 2018. As on 14th October, the portfolio has returned 16.58% on equal weight basis, while Nifty50 and Nifty500 clocked 7.42% and 3.20%, respectively.Hero MotoCorp LimitedInvestment Rationale: Hero MotoCorp is the largest two-wheeler maker in the country and has maintained its leadership position over last several years. Its ability of adapt and quickly sense customer preferences has been instrumental in its holding on to the leadership position irrespective of economic cycles. From selling 33 lakh in FY08 to 78 lakh units in FY19, it has come a long way. Its foray into scooters, overseas markets, premium segment, and e-vehicles is not only helping it to negotiate the present automobile downturn, but is also preparing it to capitalize on the future turnaround better than its peers. Strong financials, high return ratios, stable operating margins, steady cash flows, capacity enhancement, and a line-up of new product offerings makes the company better placed to tackle industry cycle changes. The company stands to gain from corporate tax cuts announced by the Government of India. The company stands increase its net profit by ~8% on availing the revised tax structure. The valuation looks attractive, as the stock has corrected almost 30% from peak levels. Historically, it trades at a PER of 18x (TTM basis) while it is now available at a PER of ~14x (TTM). Risk-reward ratio appears favourable from hereon. The monetary policy has been accommodative. RBI has cut interest rates by 135 basis points so far. The prevailing repo rate is 5.15%, just shy of the 10-year low of 4.75%. Good monsoons and favourable government policies are laying the foundation for an economic revival. We are optimistic of an economic turnaround happening sooner rather than later. ValuationWe believe the management conviction of growth picking up from H2FY20 will hold. Lower interest rate scenario, good monsoons and stable input prices augur well. The entry into e-vehicle and premium segment will be a blended realization accretive. Conservatively valuing the company at a PER of 16x FY21e, we arrive at a target price of Rs3,376, implying an upside of around 27% from current levels. We recommend ‘Accumulate’ on HeroMotoCorp.Financial SummaryAbout the CompanyOverview Hero MotoCorp has been at the forefront of designing and developing technologically advanced motorcycles and scooters for customers around the world. It became the world’s largest two-wheeler manufacturer in 2001, in terms of unit volume sales in a calendar year, and has maintained the coveted title for the past 18 years.Manufacturing FacilitiesThe company has 5 manufacturing facilities in India and two overseas (Colombia and Bangladesh). The company has commenced construction of a new manufacturing facility at Chittoor, which once operational, will take the overall installed capacity to about 11 million units.In addition, the company has an R&D centre at Jaipur with key focus on building a premium portfolio, enhancing scooter offerings, addressing regulatory changes (viz. BS VI), and preparing for EVs. JK Paper LimitedInvestment Rationale The paper industry is undergoing a paradigm shift on usage as volume growth shifts from printing and writing copiers to packaging and boards. E-commerce has been the chief consumption driver aided by environmental concerns over single-use plastics as packaging material. The company has been a turnaround story from reporting losses in FY14 and FY15 to a profit of around Rs425 crore in FY19. Paper industry in India is poised for significant growth as annual paper consumption per capita is merely ~13kg in comparison to ~200kg in North America and global average of ~58kg. Acquisition of Sirpur Paper Mills will significantly enhance its capacity from ~4,55,000 tonnes per annum (TPA) to 5,91,000 TPA. Operating leverage and benefits of the same started accruing from Q1FY20. Before the acquisition of Sirpur Paper Mills, it was operating at 100% capacity utilisation. To capture growing demand for virgin fibre boards (VFB) the company is enhancing its capacity further to 2,70,000 TPA from 90,000 TPA, which is likely to be completed in the next 2 years. After this, it will become second-largest producer of VFB in the country. Online retail, FMCG, Food & Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Textile sectors are demanding packaging paper more than off-sets. Also, due to the advent of the digital era, the usage of printing, writing, newsprint, and speciality papers has reduced. ValuationThe company is trading at a PER of 4.30x on a TTM basis. Healthy balance sheet, considerable reduction in debt along with improving operating margins makes the risk-reward ratio quite favourable. Operating margins have improved to 27% (FY19) from 8% in FY14. Debt/equity ratio has reduced to 0.76x in FY19 from 2.42x in FY14. We expect revenue of 15% CAGR for the next couple of years. Conservatively valuing the company at a PER of 6x FY21E, the target price is Rs174 per share, with an upside of around 50% from current levels. The company has scope for potential re-rating.

A focused product offering, high emphasis on cost control, better operating synergies, happy dealerships and enabling business policies are key factors for the turnaround. The management has been able to tackle the recent slowdown well. It delivered 2.24% YoY growth in tractor sales for the month of September when competitors are seeing de-growth. It has strong positioning in north India where monsoons were good. There are chances of a 7% hike in the minimum support price for the Rabi crop. The recommendation for the same has been made by Ministry of Agriculture to the Cabinet. The company stands on strong financials. The balance sheet is almost net-debt free, has healthy return ratios and operating margins, and ROE is in excess of 20%. Lower interest rate cycle, good monsoons and benign input prices augur well. Recent corporate tax rate cut by the Government of India is likely to benefit it by adding around 9% to net profits. ValuationEscorts is trading at a PER of around 16x on TTM basis. It usually trades at a higher multiple of 25-27x on TTM basis. We believe the company will not gain market share from its competitors but is also well placed to capitalize on the future economic revival. It appears poised for a re-rating. Valuing the company at a PER of 18x FY21E, target price is Rs810 per share, implying an upside of around 35% from current levels.

Godrej Consumer Products Ltd.Investment Rationale Godrej Consumer Products is a niche play on consumption. Its products like Good Night, Hit, Cinthol, and Godrej Expert have been household names for decades. Household insecticides, hair colour, personal care (soaps) have been the mainstay of its product stable. A concentrated product portfolio and strong brand equity and recall have been the mantra of its remarkable journey of over 100 years. The top 10 brands contribute 70% of the revenue. Geographical diversification has delivered healthy dividends to business. Around 46% of the top line contribution comes from rest of the world, primarily from African countries, Indonesia, Latin America and the Middle East, which serves as a natural hedge against slowdown in the domestic economy. In the last 10 years, revenue has grown at 25% CAGR and net profit at 31%. Equitable distribution of revenue comes from personal care, home care and household insecticides. Air fresheners and incense sticks are gaining traction. Wet hair products have been hugely successful in African countries. Healthy balance sheet, high return ratios, robust cash flows, and high operating margin provide much needed margin of safety in times of economic slowdown. ValuationThe stock is presently trading at a PER of 30x on TTM basis. Usually, it trades at a PER of 40-45x (TTM basis) during the last 5 years. We expect FY20 to end with de-growth of around 3-5% on top and bottom line. However, a pick up in revenue and profitability is expected from the onset of FY21. Conservatively valuing the company at a PER of 35xFY21E, we arrive at a target price is Rs875 per share, implying an upside of around 26% from current levels.About the Company Godrej Consumer Products is a leading emerging markets company. As part of the over 122-year old Godrej Group, the company has a proud legacy built on the strong values of trust, integrity and respect for others.

GNPA at 1.54% and NNPA at 1.08% as at 31 March 2019 in a tough economic environment speak volumes about the strong fundamentals of the company. Lower interest-rate cycle and easing liquidity measures are likely to be margin accretive for the company. During CY19, liquidity for NBFCs was a concern which resulted in lower NIMs. However, now the environment is more stable and most of the concerns have been addressed by the RBI. In the last 5 years, PAT has grown at over 15% CAGR while the loan portfolio is around 16%. Affordable housing loans constitute major part of the loan book. The present market capitalization is at Rs18,700 crore, BV is at Rs322, FY19 PAT stood at Rs2,430 crore, while that of Q1FY20 was at Rs610 crore. The stock had hit an all-time high of Rs765 and is now trading at Rs370, down almost 50% from the peak. Given the thrust on ‘Housing for all’ by the Government of India and the management’s focus, we expect the company to regain its earnings momentum. ValuationThe stock is presently available at a P/BV ~1.15x on TTM basis. Usually, it has traded at a P/BV 1.5 to 1.75x (TTM basis) during the last 5 years.
