Key Data/ Action, Result and Board meeting to watch:

Fund View:

HDFC Bank Citi Maintained ‘Buy’ with a price target of Rs 1,600. Market share gains to drive growth and asset quality outlook. Bank to prioritise sustainable deposit garnering over margins. Increase in consumer leverage is manageable.

L&T Credit Suisse Maintained ‘Neutral’; cut price target to Rs 1,325 from Rs 1,460. Retain cautious view; valuation support inadequate given weak macro. Believe that growth levers are weak; growth assumptions would face continuing challenges. Public sector spending momentum has slowed; debatable whether L&T will achieve year’s guidance.

Dalmia Bharat Kotak Securities Upgraded to ‘Buy’ from ‘Add’; maintained price target at Rs 1,050. Gaining scale without adding leverage; good proxy to play consolidation in East markets. On track to reach 37 MTPA capacity from current 26 MTPA in two years. Concerns on treasury overblown; attractive valuations make risk-reward favorable.

Embassy Office Park REIT Nirmal Bang Initiated ‘Accumulate’ with a price target of Rs 468. Strong fundamentals already priced in; expect strong demand growth to continue. Benign interest rate environment and revenue growth to help in cap rate contraction. Strong sponsors and experienced managers give additional comfort for revenue growth.
