Fund View:


Jindal Stainless Emkay Maintained ‘Hold’; raised price target to Rs 79 from Rs 78. Co reported in line set of earnings. Higher than expected raw material cost offset better than expected topline. At 3.7x Sep-21E EV/Ebitda, stock seems fairly valued.
Biocon Citi Maintained ‘Buy’; raised price target to Rs 360 from Rs 350 Revise our EPS estimated for the current and the next financial year at 9.6 percent and 3.8 percent respectively. An interesting play on the global biosimilars opportunity. Expect EM sales to lead growth for biopharma business.

LIC Housing: Morgan Stanley Maintain ‘Equal-Weight’; cut price target to Rs 400 from Rs 440. LIC Housing Finance and IDBI Bank have denied merger plans. Lack of compliance with RBI norms will remain an overhang. Yet a merger wouldn’t be easy to execute either. Not moving to UW – we think a merger is not a straightforward conclusion.
