ITC Ltd. (NSE: ITC) (Share Price: Rs.296): Potential Buy (10 Steps To Pick The Best Stocks)

Valuation: Fairly-Valued stock with TTM PE of 31x.

Reasons to consider: ITC Limited is a holding company, which is engaged in the marketing of fast moving consumer goods (FMCG). The Company operates through four segments: FMCG, Hotels, Paperboards, Paper and Packaging, and Agri Business. ITC reported a steady quarter with broad-based growth across segments. Cigarette volumes grew a healthy 7.5% with 8.8% EBIT growth as stable prices propelled steady increase in consumer demand. FMCG business reported 41.6% higher EBIDTA led by strong traction in processed foods and lower losses in personal care despite one off losses on business restructuring in Lifestyle retailing. Paperboard business is in fine fettle given gains from steady prices and benign input costs.

Drivers: ITCs vision of reaching Rs 100,000 crore turnover with FMCG contributing Rs 70,000 crore is on the right track with companys slew of new launches recently. It has forayed into packaged non-basmati rice market with Sona Masoori in Bengaluru. In the dairy segment, it has launched four variants of RTD milk beverages under Sunfeast Wonderz brand in Karnataka and Tamil Nadu. ITC is looking to expand its dairy business further by launching paneer in Kolkata and milk beverages on a pan India level in the near term. It has launched pouch milk under Aashirvaad Swasti and curd under Aashirvaad Swasti Dahi. It expanded its noodle portfolio by launching Sunfeast Yippee noodles in four new variants and launched its traditional flavours snack Tedhe Medhe Wakhra Style under Bingo brand.

Cyient Ltd. (NSE: CYIENT) (Share Price: Rs.660) (Share Market tips): Potential Buy

Valuation: Under-Valued stock with TTM PE of 18x.

Reasons to consider: Cyient delivered weak performance in Q3FY19 on revenue front while margin expansion was a positive. Revenue was at USD 165.1mn was down 2.2% QoQ, (-1.5%) in CC(constant currency). Services (88% of rev, -0.2% QoQ CC) growth was below expectation while DLM (12% of rev, -10.3% QoQ) fall was less than expected. Aerospace & Defence (34.3% of rev, +0.5% QoQ) has been stable in a seasonally weak quarter. EBITDA Margin was up 103bps QoQ to 14.7%, led by margin expansion in Services (16.3%,+100bps QoQ) and DLM (4%, +30bps QoQ). Going forward, we expect revenue growth to be driven by ramp up in postponed deal in communication segment, acceleration in Aerospace & Defence (mainly led by higher spend from military and healthy spends in avionics & MRO) and improvement in semiconductor & utility space.

Drivers: The company will continue to make investments in Platforms & IPs which will aid future growth. We expect growth to come from Acceleration in Aerospace & Defence, Ramp-up in DLM and Recovery in Communication led by new order wins. Cyients Q3FY19 margins have improved 100 bps on the back of cost efficiency and rupee depreciation. Company is expected to witness healthy growth in the coming quarters mainly led by improved growth in communication and aerospace segment.

Financial: Revenue at Rs 1188 crore in Q3FY19 vs Rs. 983 crore in Q3FY18 up 20%. Net Profit at Rs. 92 crore in Q3FY19 vs Rs. 109 crore in Q3FY18 down 15.3% whereas, EBITDA stands at Rs. 175 crore in Q3FY19 vs Rs. 143 crore in Q3FY18 up 22% and EBITDA Margins at 14.78% in Q3FY19 up 18bps from 14.60% in Q3FY18.

Just Dial Ltd. (NSE: JUSTDIAL) (Share Price : Rs.612.50): Avoid

Valuation: Fairly-Valued stock with TTM PE of 22x.

Reasons to avoid: JD could be under-investing in A&P (Advertising and Promotion) in contrast to the aggressive cash-burns by most of domain-specific apps. Due to this it will effect on its product/service categories where it is used by their consumers and that affecting the extant paid-client base. We believe in coming quarter earnings revision cycle will likely to be weak as revenue growth will remains muted. Furthermore, major risk in long-term for JDs revenues/business model remains the growing generic search capabilities of Google + direct web-presence by medium/small enterprises with the falling costs of setting up websites. Thus, given the Q3 performance and the recent buy-back from the company are already priced-in the stock. One can avoid the stock and sell at higher levels.

Valuation: Fairly-Valued stock with TTM PE of 22x.

Reasons to avoid: Company has posted good number in Q3 but it is un-comparable due to its merger with videocon d2h. The main threat to company is Jio, which had announced plans to enter the cable broadband and IPTV space, strengthened its distribution reach by acquiring a majority stake in two of the MSOs Hathway Cable and Network. The deal gave Jio access to 24 million households and 27000 LCOs. We believe this is a major breakthrough for last mile connectivity and that will effect on the ARPU's of the dish tv and shift in subscriber base. With, high promoter pledge (84% of promoters stake is pledged) is also a cause of concern as we have already seen recent carnage in the stock due to this.

Financial: On the financial front in Q3FY19 Net Sales was Rs 1517.45 crore vs Rs. 740.77 crore in Q3FY18 up 104.85%. Net Profit at Rs. 161.66 crore in Q3FY19 vs Rs 3.58 crore in Q3FY18 up 4615.64%.
