With 2.8 million new cars sold in a year, India has become the 4th largest auto market globally. With GDP per Capita inching above USD 2,000, we expect India to witness a boost in discretionary spending that will drive the growth in personal mobility, with cars per 1,000 people expected to reach 45 by CY30. While demographic drivers should provide demand push, digital advertising and sales are slated to empower a large share of this growth as the performance-oriented channels provide maximum value to OEMs and dealers. As COVID- induced lockdowns imposed restrictions on physical movement over the past year, leading car manufacturers in India have already declared digital as a priority medium. Maruti, the largest automaker, is generating 40%+ enquiries digitally, having digitised 24 of 26 steps of a car buying process with only test drive and delivery via the physical medium. This digital focus has nurtured several auto-tech businesses to scale. The sector is on a long-term growth trajectory and recent investment trends in players such as Cars24, CarDekho, Spinny and CarTrade are just the tip of the iceberg.

Glenmark Life Sciences initial public offering (IPO) opened today and received a strong response from investors, fully subscribing to the issue in less than two hours. Retail investors lead the charge oversubscribing the issue. Glenmark Life Sciences, a subsidiary of the already listed Glenmark Pharmaceuticals, is a developer and manufacturer of high value, non-commoditized APIs in chronic therapeutic areas with a strong partnership with global players. The Rs 1,541 crore public issue is a mix of fresh issue of equity shares and an offer for sale (OFS) by existing shareholders. On the initial day of bidding, Glenmark Life Sciences continued to trade at a weak premium in the grey market.
In the year FY21, Glenmark Life Sciences’ delivered PAT of 352cr. Hence, post listing, the company would have 12cr shares indicating an EPS of 29.33. Further considering the issue price of 720, the P/E comes to 24xFY21. The company is a mixture of complex API and CDMO, and we believe the stock is fairly valued.

Given its strong focus on R&D expansion plans, leadership in select high-value non-commoditized APIs in therapeutic areas, solid clientele and growth opportunities in CDMO services provide a strong outlook for the company. At the upper price band of Rs.720, GLSL is available at a P/E of 25x (diluted) which appears fairly priced. Considering its robust growth in financials, fall in D/E, rise in future capacity and future product portfolio, the stock can be considered on a long-term basis.

New age internet shares such as Zomato and Info Edge (naukri.com) may not make it to the benchmark NSE Nifty 50 index in the impending review next month, despite having a high market capitalization.

Zomato too has a bright chance of making it to Nifty 50 in the future. “New large-cap internet platform companies like Zomato with high free-float market cap due to zero promoter holdings could be serious contenders for entry into the benchmark indices going ahead,” the report said.

Considering the FY-21 adjusted EPS of Rs.31.93 on a post-issue basis, the company is going to list at a P/E of 28.19 with a market cap of Rs.24,510 mn, while its peers namely Ramkrishna Forgings and MM Forgings are trading at a P/E of 123.30 and 37.14 respectively. We assign a “Subscribe (With Caution)” rating to this IPO as the company is one of the leading forging manufacturers with a geographically diversified revenue base and is available at reasonable valuation as compared to its peers. However, the client concentration risk and CDR debt restructuring in the past keeps us cautious at the same time from a longer-term perspective. Marwadi Shares and Finance

Given the tailwinds in the whole Indian API sector due to increased demands from global pharmaceutical innovators & generic companies going for a China+ 1 multisourcing strategy, this industry is on the path to growing more than double digits for years to come. We believe Glenmark Life sciences IPO which is currently valued at 4.6x EV/sales, 15x EV/ EBITDA & 25x Price/ Earnings & following the lucrative strategy to become bigger in complex APIs, is rather reasonably valued. The IPO is worth thinking about if you are a long-term investor. Aditya Kondawar, Founder, COO, JST Investments
The local currency- Rupee has been into the consolidation phase of 74.30-75.00 zone. Moving ahead, it would be interesting to watch whether RBI again take charge and intervene heavily at current levels or allow it to appreciate towards 74.00-74.10 levels. The chances of reversal from the current levels are high as the resurgence of COVID cases in Asia, higher inflationary pressure, and importer’s rush to cover dollar exposure ahead of Fed and RBI meeting could take the pair again towards 74.90-75.00 levels.

The Nifty continues to be spiritless in its momentum; the range-bound movement still persists! Until we do not get past 15900 on the upside or break 15400 on the downside, we will be far from witnessing a definite trend. While the propensity remains on the upside, the test of patience is challenging. A buy on dips can be looked at as a possible trading strategy.

The 15600 – 15900 Nifty range may hold for some more time since FIIs have again turned aggressive sellers (Rs 2377 cr in cash market yesterday) at around 15900 levels. Even though DIIs are consistently buying (Rs 1551cr yesterday), they are being overwhelmed by FII selling which has touched Rs 14755 cr in July so far. Nifty is unlikely to decisively break above 15900 until FII selling weakens substantially. Since money is continuously flowing into domestic equity mutual funds, the fund managers don’t have any option but to buy even if valuations are high. The mid-small-cap segment is witnessing high volatility in response to results since the institutional activity is low in this segment. The newbie retail investors are now focused on this segment. But this segment can correct hugely when the market turns bearish and, therefore, investors have to be cautious. V K Vijayakumar, Chief Investment Strategist at Geojit Financial Services
