"We like company's increasing growth focus but it takes time to show up," the brokerage house says, adding it continued to build in ramp-up in revenue as Maggi noodles gain traction ahead.

Credit Suisse has maintained underperform rating on the stock as company's valuations are expensive compared to peers.

HDIL

JPMorgan is overweight on HDIL, with a target price at Rs 140 as net debt continued to decline and thesis on the stock is intact.

ICICI Prudential

Mutual fund assets increased by 36 percent YoY, though it is debt funds that formed 67 percent of total, it says.

Ajanta Pharma

With recommending sell on Ajanta Pharma, Ambit says dream run led by strong growth in Africa would end with return of incumbents in FY18, no growth in donor funding over 2016-19, and re-alignment of portfolio in branded generics.

These would result in a 3 percent decline in revenues in FY18 in Africa, it feels. In domestic, as Ajanta hits the ceiling in existing therapies, growth could taper but remain higher than IPM led by brand equity, it says.

The brokerage house says US business will gain on cost arbitrage and low base, but both short-term opportunities at best.

With margin/return on capital employed compression and premium valuations, Ambit sees downside risk to bull case Street expectations.
