We believe that this is a method by which the Government is looking to shore up its finances in the aftermath of the Covid-19 crisis.

Revenue recorded a growth of 24% YoY led by market share gains on completion of expansion. Overall volumes grew by 26% YoY; 28%/9% YoY volume growth in grey/white cement segment. Blended realisations grew marginally on a QoQ basis (inline with expectation) as white cement/putty volumes doubled in 2Q increasing its proportion in overall mix. Blended EBITDA/t at INR 1,461/t (vs. INR 1,135/t last year), reported 29% YoY growth primarily led by decline in costs. Other expenses declined marginally YoY on absolute basis despite 26% growth in volumes. Net debt (at INR 13.7bn currently) is expected to peak at INR 25bn as company spends INR 5-6bn towards projects and c.INR 1.5-2.5bn towards maintenance capex, infusion in Fujairah and Panna project. Company is expected to kick-start expansion at Panna from 1QFY22 (2-3 years time for commissioning with capex of less than INR 25bn). Going forward we expect the ramp up in new capacities along with the cost initiatives will drive the strong FCF generation helping the company to fund its expansion projects. We upgrade the EBITDA estimates by 12-15% and roll forward by 12 months. We continue to value the company at 10x FY22 EBITDA to arrive at a revised TP of INR 2,100."

11. 30 AM: Infosys outlook

Commenting on Infosys-Manik Taneja, from JMFL said," Infosys's Virtual Analyst Meet provided increased confidence in resiliency (as seen in recent quarters, Infosys is the lone Tier I techs to see positive growth in 1HFY21 with margins improving to near FY18 levels after the investments made through FY18-20). While INFO kept shy of providing any firm quantitative outlook on midterm growth and margins, it expects to revert to pre Covid momentum ('with possible upsides from industry tailwinds') as well as expects to maintain and expand operating margins going forward aided by strategic levers (read: AI/Automation, onsite/offshore revenue mix, employee pyramid, sub contracting costs and operating leverage). Infosys's commentary was reassuring with company signalling single minded focus on execution aided by stability at the top leadership team over the recent years (unlike what was seen through FY11-18). We remain BUY on Infosys with INFO being our top pick in the sector. Our Tier I preference is INFO>HCLT>TECHM (All rated BUYs)>Wipro>TCS (both rated HOLDs)."

11. 11AM: Nifty technical update

Sameet Chavan (Chief Analyst-Technical and Derivatives, Angel Broking) said,: "In our last week's outlook, we had mentioned a bullish Flag pattern on Nifty with targets of 12700 - 12800 and the said target has been met. Technically, when prices reach their pattern target levels with oscillators in the overbought zone, the prices are likely to see some correction or consolidation. This is what we said yesterday in the report and exactly the same was witnessed in the first half. Having said that, with a medium-term view, we believe that it's just the beginning of mega Bull Run, and 13000 and beyond levels are very much on cards. In such a scenario, buying on dips for index or having a stock specific approach will be the right strategy. For the coming session, immediate support is placed around 12630 - 12550 levels."

11.02 AM: Private Sector Banks update

Commenting on Private Sector Banks, LKP Securities said in its note," The overall NPA ratio declined sequentially because of Supreme Court's interim order. Nevertheless, most of the large banks reported stable pro-forma NPA numbers, while most lenders indicated healthy trend in collection efficiencies (~94% for most of the bank) in Sep/Oct-20. The large private sector banks expect ~3% of book may go for restructuring. 2QFY21 results indicated private bank's earnings recovery from COVID faster than anticipated. Private Banks witnessed healthy NII growth (~16% YoY) as NIMs remain stable. On the back of higher collection efficiencies, we estimate SCB's FY21E, GNPA ratio to inch up to ~11.5% (v/s 13% estimated by RBI under base case scenario). However, the Net NPA formation may remain stable because of ample contingent provision (ex. PCR) available in the balance sheet. We estimate the NNPA ratio to be at ~4% by FY21E which is lower than FY16-19 run rate

10. 54 AM: FII inflow outlook

Dr. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services said,"Sustained FII buying (Rs 6027 crores yesterday) is imparting strength to the market even at high levels. This month, so far, around $ 4 billion have come in.DII selling is having no impact on the market. Investors have to be cautious at these levels. Remain invested in quality large-caps. Prospects for segments like IT appear good even at present levels. Last month witnessed lots of mutual fund redemptions & stoppage of SIPs. These decisions have already been proved wrong"

Company priced IPO at PE levels of 30.1x at the upper end of the price band that is at a slight premium to mid-cap pharma peers as per FY 2020 numbers. The company is also trading at EV/Sales of 8.1x and EV/EBITDA of 20.1, which is also higher as compared to peers. We have assigned a"NEUTRAL"recommendation to our retail clients.

In case of major decline, its 20-day and 50-day EMA will act as a strong support for the index, which are now placed at 12,037 and 11,723 levels, respectively.
