MARKETS ON MONDAY: TCS market-cap hits $100 bn; Nifty ends below 10,600

Nifty closed at 10,585 levels. TCS market-cap hits $100 billion in intraday deals; but stock ends flat as investors book profit

Markets pared their day’s gains to end largely flat on Monday amid weakness in their global peers as investors braced for a bevy of earnings from the world’s largest corporations, while keeping a wary eye on US bond yields as they approached peaks that had triggered ructions in the past.

The S&P BSE Sensex ended the day at 34,451, up 35 points while the broader Nifty50 index settled at 10,585, up 21 points.

Among individual stocks, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)  became India’s first $100 billion information technology (IT) company in terms of market capitalisation (market-cap), after the stock of the IT bellwether hit a new high during the day. The stock had hit a new high of Rs 3,557.90 on NSE, up 4.57% in the intra-day trade, extending its Friday’s 6.7% surge, as the company reported better-than-expected March quarter earnings in post market hours on Thursday. However, the stock pared the day’s gains to end at Rs 3,395.90, down 0.19% from the previous close.

MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan dipped 0.1%, with South Korea off 0.2%. Japan’s Nikkei dithered either side of flat as tech stocks continued to struggle with a warning on waning demand for mobile phones.
On the geopolitical front, US President Donald Trump said on Sunday the North Korean nuclear crisis was a long way from being resolved, striking a cautious note a day after the North pledged to end its nuclear tests.
Back, home, Reserve Bank of India (RBI) Governor, Urjit Patel said the country’s growth is expected to accelerate next fiscal. Although the real GDP growth was moderated to 6.6% from 7.1% a year ago.
Meanwhile, a top Indian official has told the World Bank that India is poised to remain the fastest-growing large economy in the world and its GDP is expected to reach $5 trillion by 2025 as the economic reforms adopted in the last few years have started to bear fruit.
Investors also reacted to HDFC Bank’s earnings for the March 2018 quarter, announced on Saturday, April 21,2018. HDFC Bank’s net profit rose 20.3% to about Rs 48 billion for the quarter ended March 31, 2018, compared with Rs 40 billion in the year-ago period

    Sebi proposed as regulator for spot commodity exchanges for gold, metals
    Spot commodity exchanges for gold, metals and even energy products like natural gas could see the light of day under the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) as the regulator.
    This has been recommended by a committee on the subject. It was appointed by the finance ministry under NITI Aayog member Ramesh Chand. The panel also suggests the “existing institutional infrastructure of commodity exchanges may also be utilised, to the extent possible, to create a spot exchange for commodities”. Regulation for spot commodity exchanges has been a contentious issue for some years. Especially after the National Spot Exchange fiasco, where a Rs 56-billion fraud was revealed in 2013.

    Motilal Oswal Research on HDFC Bank

    HDFC Bank has been consistently gaining market share across most products in the retail segment (personal loans, business banking, credit cards and auto loans), and the upcoming capital raise will enable it to sustain this growth momentum. Operating expenses have been under control, and significant digital initiatives have led to a consistent decline in the C/I ratio to ~40%. We have built in Rs 240 billion of capital raise in FY19 and arrive at a target price of Rs 2,400 at 4.0x Mar-20E ABV for the bank. Maintain Buy.

    Edelweiss on HDFC Bank

    HDFC Bank’s Q4FY18 earnings sustained 20% YoY growth momentum but core operating profit growth was softer—up <25% versus 30% plus over the past couple of quarters. The miss was due to sharp moderation in loan growth (sub-20% YoY); surprising given better market opportunities in corporate segment (PSU fallout). Meanwhile, deposits grew a strong 13% QoQ, which along with capital raising will provide growth runway to the bank.

    Asset quality held in good stead amidst concerns over RBI’s recent recognition norms. Key monitorables: a) loan growth returning to ~25% driving core NII growth; and b) sustenance of NIMs at ~4.3% with recent dip in CD ratio. Best-in-class franchise, marginal stress baggage and proposed equity raising (pending government approval) place HDFC Bank in a sweet spot to capitalise on emerging opportunities. Maintain ‘BUY’

    Nomura on TCS

    We retain Reduce as we find valuations expensive at ~20x FY20F and see risk to street expectations of ~double-digit constant currency (CC) revenue growth and flattish margins. Our caution stems from: 1) large segments US/BFSI remaining weak, growing at low- to mid-single digits y-y, with clarity on BFSI still a quarter away amid risks from insourcing at large US Banks.

    We look for CC revenue growth of 8.5%/7% over FY19/20F; and 2) margins missed expectations despite revenue beat and risks remain from wage hikes, impact of large insurance deals with takeover of ~5,200 people (~4,500 onsite), legacy pricing pressure and need to realign onsite staff in view of US immigration tightening.

    IDBI Capital on HDFC Bank

    HDFC Bank delivered another stable performance, with its numbers largely in line with our expectations. GNPAs are around 1% consecutively for each of the past eight years, whereas restructured loans were miniscule. It has marginal exposure to only two accounts of the forty accounts mentioned by the RBI. Its CASA deposit franchise is strongest among peers. We are structurally positive on HDFCB considering its healthy asset quality, superior deposit franchise and credit underwriting, structurally better NIM and the ability to maintain RoA at ~2.0% and RoRWA at ~2.5% in the long run.
    In times of gigantic deterioration in asset quality for corporate peer bank, preference toward high quality retail banks will continue to remain. As a result premium valuation for HDFCB is fairly justified in our opinion. We value HDFC Bank at 4.4x P/ABV FY19E (30% premium to mean valuations) deriving a target price of Rs2,400 with a BUY rating.
