Ventura is bearish on Nestle India and has recommended sell rating on the stock in its August 10, 2012 research report.
"Tata Power`s consolidated performance where below expectations at Rs 145.9 crore, down by 66.1% yoy, on account of higher fuel costs, increased production costs at coal JVs, higher depreciation and interest costs and reversal of revenues (Rs 155 crore) due to change in effective date of MYT regulations in Mumbai. However, aided by higher physical performance by both the power business and coal trading business, the net sales for the current quarter grew by 24% to Rs 7197.6 crore."
"On the standalone business, higher than expected generation at 4259 MUs, up 10% yoy led to 19% jump in revenue to Rs 2190.0 crore. Increased fuel cost and reversal of Rs 155 crore led to fall in EBITDA margins. Supported by, higher other income and lower tax outgo helped the company post an 11% increase in net profit to Rs 312.3 crore."
"At Mundra, the company has commissioned the second 800 MW unit in the month of July. The remaining 3 units would get commissioned at a gap of 4 months each. The company has filed with CERC regarding conversion of non-escalable component to escalable. In light of current scenario, the tariff revision seems a long drawn and unlikely event. Till then, the company plans to blend low grade & high grade coal in the ratio of 70:30 which would have a slight impact on the heat rate and auxiliary consumption. The company expects to incur Rs 40 crore per month loss on Mundra operations which is in line with our expectations."
"Increased volumes and depreciation of rupee helped the Coal business to register a growth of 14% yoy to Rs 2265 crore. Impacted by deferred stripping cost write-off of Rs 211 crore, lower realization the EBIT for the quarter stood at Rs 257.6 crore, down 66% yoy."
"Issues pertaining to tariff revision for Mundra UMPP project, coal availability for Maithon project, rupee depreciation is likely to be an overhang on the stock. With none of the issues likely to resolve soon, we remain bearish on the stock. At CMP of Rs 100, the stock is currently trading at a consensus P/E of 13.6x and 14.0x for FY13E & FY14E. We recommend a SELL on the stock," says Ventura research report.
