Torrent Pharma | CMP: Rs 2,686.95 | The stock price tumbled 15 percent after the company reported a 16 percent drop in profit for the December quarter. Its consolidated net profit declined to Rs 249 crore for the third quarter on account of muted performance in the US market. The drug maker had posted a net profit of Rs 297 crore in the October-December period of 2020-21 fiscal. Global research and broking firm CLSA has downgraded the stock to outperform from 'buy' and has cut the target to Rs 3,350 from Rs 3,850 a share. It is of the view that the Q3 earnings were below estimates due to a sharp 5 ppts on-year margin decline. India sales growth of 15 percent YoY remained solid but the US and EU sales were below estimates, it said.
Maruti Suzuki | CMP: Rs 8,801 | The share gained over 2 percent after the country’s largest car maker reported a standalone net profit of Rs 1,011 crore for the third quarter ended December 31, 2021 against Rs 1,941 crore a year ago. Research house Credit Suisse has kept an 'outperform' call on the stock on the back of healthy demand, strong new model cycle and margin normalisation. It raised the target price to Rs 10,389 from Rs 8,759 and also raised FY23-24 EPS estimates by 3-4%. Citi has maintained buy rating on the stock and raised the target price to Rs 10,000 from Rs 9,500 after strong Q3 with significant beats at EBITDA, EBIT & profit levels.
