Mahindra & Mahindra
Reco : Buy
TGT : 1450 
Key Points 
·         Valuation: The demand environment for both the automotive (on the back of new launches) and the tractor segment (due to expectations of normal monsoon and low base over the last two years) looks encouraging. We have reduced our FY2017 and FY2018 earnings estimates by 11% each to factor in slightly lower margin performance in Q4FY2016 and higher depreciation (on the back of new launches) and taxation (given the expiry of tax incentives at Haridwar plant). We have however increased our SOTP-based price target to Rs1,450 (as against earlier TP of Rs1,407) as we roll over our target on FY2018 earnings and factor increased valuation of subsidiaries. We maintain Buy rating on the stock. 

Bharat Electronics
Reco : Buy
TGT : 3650

Key Points 
·       Maintain Buy with price target of Rs1,450: We have marginally tweaked our earnings estimate downward by 2/3% Fort FY17/18E to factor in lower than expected revenue performance; however earnings downgrade was restricted on account of better than expected margins exit rate for Q4FY16 (however, it will have Seventh Pay Commission impact in FY2017). BEL remains our preferred pick for defense play on account of its strong manufacturing and R&D base. Further, on operational front, good cost control, increasing indigenisation and discipline in working capital (improved in FY2016) and improving export order book will aid earnings growth over FY16-18 (13.7% CAGR). We reiterate Buy with an unchanged price target of Rs1,450.

Thomas Cook (India)
Reco : Buy
TGT : 255

Key Points 
·     Performance to improve in coming years; retained Buy: Kuoni’s acquisition will drive the core travel business of TCIL, and the VO business is expected to perform well. We expect HR business to grow in double digits with increase in the headcount and operating efficiencies should help in improving business margins. We expect TCIL’s revenues to grow at CAGR of 25% over FY2016-18 and expect OPM to improve by 100-200BPS p.a. Further, the company has cash and cash equivalents of ~Rs1100 crore which can be actively utilized for inorganic initiatives. Thus, in view of improving growth prospects of key businesses, we maintain our Buy recommendation with an unchanged price target of Rs255. 

Oil India
Reco : Hold
TGT : 400

Key Points

·     Retain Hold but raised price target to factor in higher energy prices outlook: We believe the short-to-medium term financial performance of OIL is heavily influenced by the volatility in crude oil prices. The international crude oil prices recently increased about 40% in the beginning of Q1FY17. If the prices sustain at the current level, there could be a positive revision in natural gas prices too, which was revised down around 20% by the government. Based on the better price indications and healthier than expected volume performance, we have revised upward our FY2017 earnings estimate by 20% and rolling over our valuation multiple to FY2018 earnings (introduced FY2018 estimates). In this backdrop, we have revised upward our price target to Rs400 but retain Hold recommendation on the stock.

Kalpataru Power Transmission
Reco : Buy
TGT : 290

Key Points 
·    Strong order book with healthy margin set path for earnings upgrade; raised PT to Rs290, Buy: Given the strong order book position, we are revising our revenue estimate largely in line with the management guidance for FY2017 and build in 10% growth thereafter in FY2018. Further, we expect OPM to be healthy around 10.5% and estimate earnings to grow at CAGR of 18% for the next 2 years. We have revised upward our earnings estimate for KPTL-stand-alone by roughly 15% and raise our price target to Rs290 (based on SoTP valuation). The stock is trading at 13x its FY2018 earnings while we see earnings growth CAGR of 18% for the next 2 years and the returns ratios are likely to improve too; therefore, we reiterate Buy on KPTL with a revised price target of Rs290 (earlier Rs265). 

Crompton Greaves
Reco : Reduce
TGT : 65

Key Points  

·   Another restructuring ahead; downgraded to Reduce as positives priced in: The major balance sheet clean-up and likely sale of the targeted assets are positive steps for the company. However, we believe, it will go through a lot of uncertainties in between before the company management could regain its focus in its domestic business. Based on the retained business numbers, we have roughly estimated earnings for FY2017 and FY2018. We built in recovery and stabilised operations in FY2018, however, at the current price these positives are largely priced in. Therefore, we downgrade our recommendation from Hold to Reduce with a price target of Rs65 (18x FY2018 earnings).
