]]> Buying Infosys with a target price of INR 2,310 suggests Motilal Oswal Thu, 13 Jan 2022 05:56:47 +0000

Rationale for the investment for Infosys according to Motilal Oswal

  • The growth of manufacturing at 3TFY22 was aided by an acceleration of the deal with Daimler. Management is seeing strong traction in the areas of smart manufacturing and IoT. Infosys is seeing very good traction in digital and cloud initiatives. Management has further improved its forecast for revenue growth. The same value now stands at 19.5-20% YoY CC (v / s its previous forecast of 16.5-17.5% YoY CC). The demand environment is so strong that he doesn’t want to leave anything on the table. Thus, it continues the pace of hiring and subcontracting despite the costs. It now has a more recent hiring target of 55,000 in FY22 from 45,000 earlier and higher prices are pouring in new offerings which should improve the margin in FY 23.
  • Infosys reported 7% QoQ CC growth, ahead of our estimate of 4.8%, thanks to an overall performance. The TCV of large transactions stood at $ 2.53 billion (new net at 44%). Management indicated a pull in large deals and pointed out that the deal pipeline was the highest in a very long time.
  • The EBIT margin only declined by 10bp QoQ to 23.5%, in line with our estimate, despite a slowdown in employee additions (12.5k), higher outsourcing and lower utilization (-70 bp QoQ) at 3QFY22. Strong revenue growth resulted in PAT growth of 7.2% QoQ to INR58b.
  • With an exceptional performance in the 3rd quarter, Infosys increased its revenue growth forecast for fiscal year 22 in USD to 19.5-20% year-on-year (from 16.5 to 17.5%). While we anticipate a more modest increase in guidance, growth in 3Q will ensure that its revenue growth for FY22 will again exceed its latest forecast by 100bp. Good revenue growth in FY2HFY22 will also help it generate high growth among teens in FY23 which would be viewed positively by investors.
  • Additionally, comments about improving pricing and attrition should allay margin concerns going forward. While LTM attrition increased sharply (550bp), management indicated that it has stabilized on an annualized quarterly basis (a sentiment echoed by its peers as well) and that it should start to moderate at the end of the year. ‘to come up. We expect the company to improve its EBIT margin by 60bps to 24.3% in FY23.

Buy with a target price of INR 2,310

Buy with a target price of INR 2,310

Motilal Oswal said in his research report that “Infosys performed strongly during 3TFY22. We expect it to show growth in the top quartile in FY22 given its strong capabilities and ramping up in big contracts. We expect the margin to hold at the top. the end of its forecast range, driven by: 1) strong revenue growth and the resulting operating leverage, 2) further flattening of the pyramid and 3) continued operational efficiency measures . to normalize over the next few quarters. “

The brokerage also asserted that “Infosys remains our top choice in the IT services space due to its leeway for increased growth potential, which was further bolstered by its 3QFY22 earnings. As Infosys has outperformed TCS, we do not expect any valuation divergence between the two Based on our revised estimates, the stock is currently trading at 28x FY23E EPS. We value 30x FY24E EPS, implying a target price of INR 2,310. “



The above stock was selected in the Motilal Oswal brokerage report. Investing in stocks presents a risk of financial loss. Investors should therefore exercise caution.

Rice price high despite new harvest, abundant imports Tue, 11 Jan 2022 19:52:32 +0000

Different varieties of rice grown by farmers in the surrounding villages are sold for between 1,400 and 2,000 Tk per maund (around 37 kilograms) at a centuries-old floating market sitting every Saturday and Tuesday on the Sandha River in the upazila Banaripara of Barishal.

Rice prices have remained high in Bangladesh despite a plentiful supply of grains as farmers harvest Aman’s second largest crop, putting low-income groups in a difficult position amid continued economic uncertainty.

Over the past month, retail rice prices have risen 6% in the capital’s markets.

For all the latest news, follow the Daily Star’s Google News channel.

The prices of medium-quality cereals registered the largest increase, followed by finer and coarse rice, straining the purchasing capacity of low-income people, who already count more for rising transport costs and soaring prices for various basic necessities, including edible oil. .

Average grain retail prices yesterday were Tk 52 to 58 per kilogram, up from Tk 48 to 56 a month ago, according to data from the state-run Trading Corporation of Bangladesh.

The finer variety was selling 3% higher at Tk 60-Tk 70 yesterday compared to a month ago. Coarse grain prices increased 3 percent to Tk 45-50 in the past month.

Millers and traders claim that purchases made by rice mills, including large industrial companies such as ACI Ltd, City Group, Pran and Akij Resources, which have entered the rice market in recent years, to build up stocks in order Marketing the staple food during the lean season is one of the drivers of higher paddy prices.

Higher transportation costs, fueled by the government’s rise in diesel prices in November, contributed to the rise in the price of grains, which are also subject to tariffs and taxes of 62.5 percent when ‘they are imported.

Data from the Agricultural Marketing Department (DAM) showed that the prices of coarse and medium grains of paddy, which are cheaper than finer ones, have increased over the past month.

For example, the prices of Coarse Aman, the second largest paddy accounting for 38 percent of annual rice production, fell from Tk 919 to Tk 950 a month ago to Tk 913 972 on the maund on January 3. Such a peak during the harvest season has raised questions.

In Bangladesh, imports increased thanks to reduced import tariffs from December 2020 to October 2021.

Out of the total imports of 13.59 lakh tonnes in fiscal year 2020-21 which ended in June, private importers contributed 7.86 lakh tonnes.

They have purchased 2.82 tonnes of lakh from the international market so far in the current fiscal year, and the imported rice is already available in wholesale markets in Dhaka.

“There may be a reason behind the increase in prices during the lean season. But any increase in prices is illogical during high seasons,” said Al Amin, a private worker who lives in Uttara de Dhaka.

Nirod Boron Saha, a rice and paddy wholesaler in Naogaon, one of the main rice wholesale centers, said rice prices have remained high even during the harvest season due to purchases by millers. .

Managers from three rice mills agreed with Saha, adding that millers and large wholesalers are busy procuring paddy for storage as they seek to sell rice during the lean season before the next late harvest arrives. April.

In addition, some farmers are storing paddy in hopes of selling it later at higher prices, creating crises in the market, according to market insiders.

The Agricultural Extension Department (DAE) estimates the transplanting of Aman crops to 56.2 lakh hectares of land in the current fiscal year, up 4.3% from the previous year.

“We expect a good harvest this year,” said a DAE official.

Abdur Rashid, president of the Bangladesh Auto Major and Husking Mill Owners Association, said the increase in income tax, production and transportation costs had affected millers and pushed up production costs.

Following the rise in rice prices, Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder, in a meeting with millers and warehouses on December 27, called on them to help keep the market stable.

He also alleged that the mill owners and warehouse keepers manipulated the prices of rice.

You can’t put a price on youth festivals Tue, 11 Jan 2022 13:14:07 +0000

Flame 2019 – image ICN / JS

The pandemic has been exceptionally difficult for young people, and I don’t think we’ve seen the full extent of it yet. They continue to live in a rapidly changing culture, surrounded by social media, with significant pressure and uncertainty regarding their upbringing, and I have never seen mental health issues on the scale I see today.

The role that our churches and youth ministries must play in investing in the next generation is important and should not be underestimated. It has been great to see an army of young workers constantly loving and supporting young people over the past couple of years and I have been so encouraged to see many groups of young people rebuilding and coming together in person.

Anyone who meets young people knows that an authentic relationship is absolutely essential – they need a cohesive connection and I think youth groups need to meet more than ever – in their local contexts but also in larger ones too.

In 2021, Dreaming the Impossible was one of the only youth festivals to take place – and God has met hundreds of young people in the most incredible way. It was a huge roller coaster ride of faith to get there, with a lot of uncertainty – surprisingly all restrictions were lifted just in time! We persevered through all the complications to make the event a reality, because we young people needed it, they needed to meet and meet God.

I grew up in a small Anglican church in Cambridgeshire, in a youth group of about 15 young people. When I was 13 we went to Soul Survivor for the first time. While I had grown up in the church and was involved in the church community with my family, nothing really prepared me for what I felt when I first walked into this meeting room. ‘stable. I was surrounded by thousands of other teenagers who were passionate about worshiping God. I saw God act in a way I had never encountered before and had a lot of fun!

Youth festivals are an annual big time for young people and from the age of 13 I went there every year until I was 20 and I was too old !! At what other age can you spend an extended time with your friends and with God at this age? I have built such deep relationships with my peers and youth leaders and looking back these gatherings have been absolutely catalytic for my faith. It was in Soul Survivor, when I was about 14 or 15, that I first felt the feeling that God was calling me to church leadership and giving me a heart for the next generation.

Many people wonder about the return of big events in this post-Covid landscape, wondering if there is value in the big ones. Have the festivals run their course? Does God do something and shake the church to try something else? And I also asked myself these questions but I am convinced of it, the festivals of young people are always as precious as ever. This is where young people are mainly known and trained and we have to keep investing in local youth ministries, but there is something special happening at a youth festival, which cannot be reproduced in a local setting. What happens in just a few days can impact what happens the rest of the year; festivals have a long-term impact. They give young people the opportunity to be completely immersed in community and in the presence of God for an extended period of time.

Whether it’s spending time in meetings meeting God together, in seminars, in cafes, playing sports, in the silent disco or having hot chocolates together – memories are created and relationships speed up. between young people and also with their leaders. I’ve heard many times that you can do a year of youth ministry in a week at a youth festival!

It is also invaluable for young people to come together with thousands of other Christians and those exploring the faith, as it helps them realize that they are part of something bigger. A young person might be part of a group of five young people, feeling like he is the only Christian around because he does not know any at his school or college – but then it comes to something like the DTI and he realizes that there are hundreds, thousands, millions all over the world like them. It is so important for them to know that they are not only part of their tribe, not the Roman Catholic, Baptist, Anglican or Free Church, but that they are part of the family of God, the Church.

It doesn’t matter whether you take a small group of 3-5 young people or a much larger group – when the young people are outside their usual surroundings, immersed in community and the presence of God, listening to relevant talks from the Bible, being prayed for, worshiping together, as well as all the fun, there is something incredibly special about what God is doing at this time. I have seen it in my own life and in hundreds and hundreds of other young people now. I also think we’ve seen it in a generation of people who are now in their twenties and thirties. If you walked into a lot of churches and asked these guys if their faith had been affected by a festival of youth, I would suspect the vast majority of the room would raise their hands.

I know that youth work has been a real challenge for many youth groups and churches during this pandemic and that many young people are less engaged and are struggling spiritually, mentally and emotionally. Youth festivals are so precious, often a mountain-top experience, a place for relationships and accelerated encounters, but we know that festivals alone cannot provide all the support and discipleship that these young people so desperately have. need. It has to be about disciplining these guys on a relationship level for the other 360 days of the year and the role of the local church is vital. Festivals can give young people the tools in their hands to walk with Jesus day in and day out, but it is their young leaders and peers who are essential to walk with them through all the ups and downs. They’re the ones who are there when they’ve had a bad day at school, when their exams have gone bad, when the house is rough, when their grandmother has passed away, whatever – they’ll be there… home. making a presentation, sending an encouraging text, praying with them.

So my challenge to you… even though youth ministry right now is a challenge and we don’t know what the next few months will look like. Even if you are exhausted and some of you may even feel like you have not much left in the tank, continue to love and bring your young people together locally, and try to do whatever it takes. ‘it takes to bring your young people to a youth festival. Next year. It will be worth it, it will be great for your young people and your ministry to young people will be stronger.

Susie is the senior pastor of the Dreaming the Impossible (DTI) youth movement. DTI serves young people from churches and youth organizations around the world and is managed by Vineyard Churches UK & Ireland. She is based in Nottingham in Trent Vineyard, where she is an associate pastor and volunteer youth leader. She loves anything yellow and can almost always be found with sunglasses!

Price Hikes Rather Than Volume Growth Drive Revenue Growth For India Inc: CRISIL Tue, 11 Jan 2022 11:06:59 +0000

After 11 quarters, the profit margin before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of Indian companies is expected to decline in the third quarter (Q3). While India Inc. has maintained its revenue momentum, it has been driven by price increases rather than volume growth, according to a research note by rating agency CRISIL.

The report says, “The revenues of companies increase 16-17% to 9.1 lakh crore, driven by soaring commodity prices. While revenue growth is as expected, the underlying reasons have changed over the past three quarters. As volume growth continued to underperform, price increases partially offset. “

Corporate profitability, as defined by EBITDA margin, likely fell 100 to 120 basis points (bps) year-on-year and 70 to 100 bps sequentially in the third quarter ended December 31, 2021, shows the CRISIL analysis of 300 companies, excluding those in financial services. , and the oil and gas sectors.

For the first nine months of this fiscal year, according to the rating agency, the EBITDA margin is up 80-100 basis points year-on-year to 22-24%, thanks to last year’s weak base . EBITDA earnings growth is expected to moderate to 10-12% year on year, compared to a scorching rate of around 47% recorded in the first half of this year – a figure which was also bolstered by the base effect weak, he added.

This is the first decline in 12 quarters and up to 27 of the 40 sectors monitored by CRISIL Research are expected to see their EBITDA margins decline.

Drishti Chugh, Senior Research Analyst at CRISIL Research, says: “In absolute terms, revenues for most industries are now above their pre-pandemic levels, with the exception of airlines and hospitality. But sectors related to consumer discretionary products weighed on overall company revenues, which were likely up 7-9% year-on-year on weaker volume growth. Among other segments, the export-related segments continued to perform well with growth of 15-17% year-on-year, although this did not really help maintain their margins. “

In the automotive sector, the sales volume of commercial vehicles is likely to have increased by 8% year on year, while cars and two-wheelers may have fallen by 9% and 20%, respectively. However, achievements could be higher – at 12% for passenger cars and commercial vehicles, 7% for two-wheelers and 9% for commercial vehicles, over one year – due to price increases and a favorable product mix. This, according to CRISIL, would bring overall automotive segment revenue growth to around 4% in one year.

He said: “Lower-than-expected auto production amid a semiconductor shortage would also be reflected in steel sales volume, which likely fell about 7% in one year.”

Hetal Gandhi, Director of CRISIL Research, says: “Companies have not been able to fully pass on soaring input costs, especially the prices of key metals and energy. Prices for flat steel rose 48% year-on-year in the third quarter, while aluminum was up 41%. The price of Brent crude jumped nearly 79%, while spot gas and coking coal prices exploded nearly 5.4 times and 2.4 times, respectively, year on year.

In the consumer business segment, the major players in Fast Turning Consumer Goods (FMCGs) made price hikes of 6-8% in the first half of this fiscal year, and prices likely remained high even in the past. quarter considered.

According to the rating agency, revenues from export-related sectors such as IT services have likely increased by 18-20% in a year, aided by the growing share of digital transformation and the possible resumption of deferred projects. Revenues for pharmaceutical companies are forecast to increase by 6%, while for manufacturers of ready-made garments and cotton yarns, they are up 30-35% year-on-year against a backdrop of higher exports, he said. he adds.
