Market Outlook 

September 25, 2012

Dealer’s Diary
Indian markets are expected to open flat tracking marginally positive opening trades in most of the Asian bourses and the SGX Nifty.
Globally, US markets ended the Monday’s trading session mostly lower, as traders continued to express concerns about the global economic outlook despite recent announcements of further monetary stimulus. However, selling pressure remained somewhat subdued, limiting the downside for the markets. Most of the European bourses too ended the trading session in negative territory. A number of issues contributed to the weakness today, but most stemmed from concerns over global growth. Meanwhile, Indian markets fell modestly on Monday, as investors indulged into profit booking following recent steep gains. After a slew of big ticket reforms announced by the UPA government over the last few days, investors are now anticipating concrete measures to fast track projects and kick start the investment cycle.

Market Outlook
September 25, 2012

No Roaming Charges from 2013
Telecom minister, Mr. Kapil Sibal announced yesterday that there will be no roaming charges from 2013. At present, mobile users pay ~ 60paise/minute in their home market while shelling out `1.25-`1.50/minute while roaming in another telecom circle. Although one can make calls at the same rate once roaming charges are dropped, telecom operators who would lose revenue may end up jacking up local call charges to recoup some of the losses. The move, however, might not go down well with service providers, who will face a hit of up to `13,500cr in revenues. We maintain our Neutral view on overall telecom sector.

Maruti Suzuki to hike car prices within a week
Maruti Suzuki (MSIL) is planning to increase the prices of its vehicles within a week to offset the impact of adverse foreign exchange movement and rising input cost pressures. While the company has not disclosed the quantum of the price increase, we believe it could be in the range of 1-2%. Considering the current environment wherein the demand for passenger cars in the petrol segment remains weak in spite of higher discounts; the move to hike prices may impact the demand for petrol cars. However, it is less likely to impact the consumer demand in the diesel car segment. At the current market price of `1,354 the stock is trading at 15.5x FY2014E earnings which is in-line with its historical average of 15x. We maintain our Neutral rating on the stock.

IVRCL bags orders worth `959cr
IVRCL has bagged orders worth `959cr in the in water, irrigation and power businesses. International orders include an order worth `471.5cr for the construction of a rehabilitation project from the National Irrigation Board, Kenya and construction of water tanks, infrastructure and related buildings from Kuwait worth `124.7cr. Domestically, IVRCL’s water division has been awarded orders worth `314.7cr. One contract is from PHED, Bharatpur, for the construction of a transmission main pipeline for 97 villages, which includes operation and maintenance. Another order is for a cluster distribution system for 71 villages from PHED, Jodhpur. In the power division, IVRCL has got an order worth `48.1cr for the construction of transmission lines in Bhopal Circle from the Madhya Pradesh Power Transmission Company. Owing to the recent surge in the stock price we recommend Accumulate with a SOTP target price of `51.
