Some updates post earnings - (In short, I am still holding all the consumption names)

IDFC First Bank, Monthly - Poised near the resistance that it can bound over this month. Any close for this month around or above 64 can point to more follow-up gains next year (breakout from post-merger trendline). Fundamentally, the results have been very good and the story is playing out. I think book value could get closer towards 48-50 levels in a couple of years or so by which time this can even trade at 3x book (All the metrics including the Cost-to-Income should be better by then) which leaves considerable returns for the future.

Metro Brands, Weekly - Around 820 levels should offer strong support which is about 64x TTM P/E. The numbers continue to be good with 47% topline growth and 42% bottomline growth YoY. QoQ isn’t comparable for footwear businesses due to seasonality as contribution varies from 22% to 27% depending on quarter (Lot more pronounced in Bata). Q3 numbers should be strong with the wedding season and the festive season. With the valuation comfort and prospect of earnings growth led by volume growth, I have left this untouched. Metro has done phenomenally well due to its target market being unaffected by inflation (Crocs continues stellar growth and the 3000+ range is where business is experiencing highest growth) - strong wage growth has compensated, which was the fundamental thesis of choosing these stocks in the first place.

Varun Beverages, Daily - Probably the best performer of the lot, along with IDFC First Bank. Seems to be resuming uptrend after 6 weeks of consolidation. The numbers have been phenomenal with strong volume growth for a seasonally weak quarter which has beaten summer quarter last year YoY. Getting Cheetos, Doritos, Lays business in Morocco could be an indicator for further in-roads into PepsiCo’s foods business that they don’t usually give out. This is probably now a BIMARU play as well with Bihar, Rajasthan, MP etc. contributing a lot to the growth. Despite the already high allocations (#1), I am always tempted to allocate more here - such has been the prospects and performance. With strong utility, cheap price points, smaller packs, I expect per capita beverage consumption to go up strongly and lead domestic consumption from the front.

Devyani, Weekly - Around 180-185 levels have been strong support and currently its trading around those levels (Also 20 WMA). Business performance has been very good here as well for a seasonally weak quarter with 45% topline growth and 21% bottomline growth (One off currency loss in Nigerian subsidiary skewing bottomline. EBITDA still highest ever across quarters, though this is a seasonally weak quarter). Store addition is the strongest with 88 stores added in the quarter which is the highest. I assumed the margin decrease was due to newly added stores but looks like there is gross margin compression as well due to inflation (confirmed in concall). Most of the RM prices from chicken, oil, gas prices though are moderating as per management so margins should come back. The topline is the highest ever which isn’t bad for a seasonally weak quarter. When margins come back, bottomline should shine as well (However tax rates might be 25% from next year)

While Metro and Devyani appear weak on the charts, so was the case with VBL and IDFC First after September and now they are the best performing, so have decided to exercise some patience since fundamentally numbers are good.

Manyavar is yet to announce results. N R Agarwal and HBL are coming soon. Haven’t seen a reason to sell any of these, so have held on as prospects are good.

Some new additions

Permanent Magnets, Weekly - Broke out of 1 year resistance, re-tested and formed a triangle from which it could be breaking out. Volumes are slim so good luck buying this. :slight_smile: The investor presentations of 2022 and 2021 and the AR offer great insights to the business. The numbers don’t seem as good as they should be due to reduction in gas meters contribution. However the contribution of EVs has been going up considerably and the vision of the business seems very promising (While they are also into current sensing and BMS, smart meters and similar space as Shivalik bi-metal, they seem like a slightly differentiated play)

Gufic, Weekly - Seems to be breaking out of the downward trendline on the weekly. I was interested in this fundamentally after going through the VP thread. Consumer focused branded pharma play, especially in the vanity space sounded like a good thing to me. Valuations weren’t demanding so took a position

Disc: Have positions in IDFC First, VBL, Devyani, Metro and Manyavar from early July or so. No trades since. Have positions in Permanent Magnets between 540-550 levels and Gufic from 220 levels. Not SEBI registered and none of this is advice. I write to make things clear to myself more than anything

Elecon, Weekly - Had posted this chart earlier around 400 levels. It corrected from there on low volumes for 3 weeks and has since then started upmove, with this week likely going to be the breakout week. Numbers came in last week and they were exceptional. Last concall had hinted at good performance and expanding margins owing to operating leverage. Looks like that is playing out.

This quarter’s call is very bullish on the outlook for the business as well. Expanding margins, improving return ratios, good order book, debt gone to zero. Its a good play on Defence as well as Industrial capex (Steel, Power, Cement). Guidance - 1500 Cr for FY23 and 2000 Cr for FY24. Margins could be around 22% on this. It looks like higher energy costs abroad are driving business (could be more structural, long-term growth). Exports will be 50% by FY30 (Right now 10-12%).

Valuation is in favour considering the growth opportunity and structural tailwinds in the business and also net debt-free balance sheet.

Vimta, Monthly - Good triangle consolidation and a breakout post Q2 results and concall. Here as well the future looks very good considering its doing well in pharma, electronics and food testing as well with diagnostic business being the only drag. The NFL setup along with FSSAI (PPP partnership) at JNPT could start contributing to numbers in the second half. Here again future could hold good topline growth along with margin expansion. Valuations not very demanding considering the growth opportunities perhaps.

There’s also a long-term 4 year C&H formation on the monthly charts

Disc: Have positions in Elecon between 350-400, added more post results. Vimta between 400-450


Recently took a position in Elecon Engineering:-

Thesis: Co can do 2000+ crores of rev in FY24 with expanding ROCE and sustaining Ebitda Margins at 22%. Moreover they have launched new products like Planetary Gears.

Similar thing played out in one of the other capital good companies where demand for cheaper products led to super normal exports growth. Can it play out in Elecon along with Navy orders coming in (expecting 300 crores+). Lets see

Technically: stock has broken out post results with high volumes and Relative strength vs the sector is greater. Part of satellite Portfolio.

Disclaimer: Make independent buy and selling decisions. Not a reco to buy or sell by any means.


Equitas SFB:-

Post the fall- the trend has finally reversed and volumes are building. Testing the trend line resistance.

Fundamental thesis:

Credit cost will fall in H2 this year going by the stated guide and write backs can start from Q3 onwards. Given they run the CV business High PCR, taken write backs when the used CV gets sold. Could be used to beef up PCR. Lets see.

BVPS post merger will be at Rs41- not factored in any street estimates at the moment.

Guidance to grow AUM is at 25%+, H2 is seasonally stronger.

Only joker in the pack is to watch the asset quality like a Hawk. GNPA’s have started falling though.

Disc: own Equitas hold co, but track SFB as reverse merger can be completed at any time, given rbi & nclt approval is here. A case study for me as I bought the Hold co at 110 first and then averaged down in 80s and 90s. Given the value that emerged. Not a reco to buy or sell by any means.


Midcap/Smallcap Weekly - We have had a good rally from July to Sept and the consolidation which looked like a setup for a breakout appears to be weakening. I thought some good numbers will help the breakout but even good numbers are getting sold into, unless there is a big earnings surprise. I am not sure what will help this breakout. The longer this sideways movement goes, more the probability of a breakdown out of sheer fatigue.

Disc: Booking profits and reducing exposure on trading positions. Selling bulk of the consumption names since I have very high allocations and good profits (nearly 25-30% on avg. since July), except VBL which I am unable to sell. I am thinking the weakness in smallcaps will give some opportunity so raising cash seems prudent. I might be wrong.


Yes @phreakv6, I’m also observing similar…good results are getting sold into and weak ones are seeing big cracks. Have you experienced similar in past and how it goes after this?


Since market gained a lot in October, probably smart money was booking profits ahead of the US CPI data yesterday. Let’s see whether markets will take a decisive direction after lower than the expected data and expectated lower future rate hikes by fed.


In general when I have seen something like this, it means there’s a lot of expectations which aren’t being met and only surprises (like stellar growth even QoQ for eg.) are respected. Everyone is keen on booking profits. I have been a bit late but looks like there will be more chance today to reduce exposure on expensive names and look for fresh ideas over next few months.

If I remember right, when I went from 20% to 100% invested in July, it was just before earnings and pretty much every result that came out - from VBL to IDFC First to Devyani was cheered and there were very quick moves. That tells there’s no expectation in the price. Due to the big runup now, though the numbers have been equally good, there’s simply no respect.

This might just be temporary weakness and some of these names with high expectations could go through extended consolidation (for 3-6-12 months), similar to what Polymed went through or many of the names with big runup last year.

Global markets are rebounding bigtime post CPI numbers but I would prefer to stick to the stance until ATHs are made on the indices which isn’t much further away - If there is strength and sustenance above ATH and there are good stock setups, there will be sufficient time to scale up new positions. There are a lot of microcaps which have been punished and could make for good entries.

Disc: I will still hold these consumption names (Devyani, Metro, Manyavar) but at a normal allocation (~5%) than what I had (~15%). I am not pessimistic on these businesses in the long term. I still hold VBL for the growth there is stellar. I feel few microcaps like Vimta probably offer better risk:reward.

Esab India, Monthly - Has been consolidating for a year in this wedge while numbers have improved consistently. Current quarter numbers are an all time high and should hopefully lead to a breakout from this consolidation.

Esab India is into welding consumables (welding rods or stick electrodes), welding equipment and cutting products. Seems to be a picks and shovels approach for capex play. They supply to Shipbuilding, construction, transport, energy and also in repair and maintenance of steels mills, cement, sugar etc. So this is probably the safest way to play the capex. The company has a very good return ratios with RoCE around 45% and RoE around 33%.

The company came up with some very good numbers over the weekend - 25% topline growth and about 33% bottomline growth YoY. Margins were at an all time high as well owing to operating leverage playing out. Unsure of what the capacity utilisation currently is but if these sort of margins continue, there could be disproportionate growth ahead.

Permanent Magnets, Daily - Broken out from pre-result prices with a gap up, most of which it filled intraday. Might re-test the trendline at around 630 levels

Numbers have been quite good here again with a 45% topline growth and a 65% bottomline growth with good margin expansion. More details on the business are present in AR and investor presentations and the AGM recording.

Disc: Have a position in Esab India from around current levels. Permanent Magnets from 550 levels and added a bit more today. A re-test could be good levels to add more.


QoQ growth continues for Arman, as Quarterly Pat crosses 19+ crores and Interest income has also grown.

Stock close to 52 Week highs

Disclaimer: invested since 700s. Mfi cycle, lets see signs of picking up pace with funds raised hitting Bs next Q. Run rate should accelerate


Techno Electric, Monthly - 1.5 years of downtrend under that trendline along with the business which has gone through Covid, commodity prices and execution problems, being predominantly a EPC player. Currently though all of them are easing and orderbook is at an all time high 3200 Cr and the management thinks it will end FY23 with an orderbook of 4000 Cr in the Q2 concall.

Execution in H1 has been tepid though the management has guided for 1200 Cr topline (conservatively, as per management) for the year, which means H2 will see about 800 Cr topline (Q3 to be better than last 2 quarters and Q4 will have bulk of it). The EPC margins guided are 12% (again, conservative) but if commodity prices ease, can be higher (Recession in Europe management says could be a positive for them). Considering H2 FY22 EBITDA of 82 Cr, the EPC EBITDA alone could be 96 Cr (12% of 800 Cr). On top of this, the Power segment could contribute about 25 Cr so H2 EBITDA growth could be ~50% if my guesstimates are right.

Those near-term positives should help the breakout.

On a long-term perspective, the valuation for the business is at ~9x EV/EBITDA. There is about 1200 Cr cash on the books and there’s a buyback going on for 160 Cr (~50 Cr buyback completed I think) which should lend support to the price. The management has guided for giving out 500 Cr as dividend as well. FY24 and FY25 topline could be in the order of 1750-2000 Cr as per latest guidance since the orderbook is timebound and has to be executed in the next 2 years.

The data center business is a nice optionality in the valuation and could positively surprise from next year. They have guided for revenue contribution from July onward next year. I don’t quite understand how this works but it looks like it could be a 250 MW data center and Techno Electric could get 10 Cr per MW. I am yet to study this bit and what term sheet they are getting into and so on since I haven’t considered this in the valuation but this could be a positve long-term surprise.

The chart and valuation and business prospects says there isn’t much to lose from here. Technically a monthly close above 320 will confirm a strong breakout which should happen in the next 2-3 months. This can be a very illiquid stock on some days and quite liquid on others - so staggering buys could be a better approach.

Disc: I have some positions around 290, initiated today. Not SEBI registed and I am a novice, please research and use your own judgement. This is my written thesis for clarity for the trade and nothing more.
