Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) benefits from the encouraging outlook for farm equipment segment, given the normal monsoon and higher minimum support prices (MSPs) that will boost farm incomes. Further, its focus on introducing new products will help it outpace industry growth.

Given the government’s push for EVs and M&M’s planned new launches in this space, it will clearly enjoy the first‐mover advantage and significantly benefit from the shift to EVs.

Over the past few years, RBL has invested significantly to improve its system and processes. As a result, the bank’s cost‐to‐income ratio has remained high.

However, as these investments bring economies of scale, we can expect costs to decline in the coming years, which in turn boost return on assets (RoA) and return on equity (RoE).
