ICICI Direct’s research report on Oberoi Realty

Oberoi Realty’s Q4FY18 sales performance was below our estimate mainly due to subdued sales in Worli project. On the financials front, the results were above our estimates on the topline, bottomline front Oberoi Realty’s (ORL) Q4FY18 sales volumes fell 13.6% sequentially to 1.31 lakh sq ft with sales value of Rs 263.3 crore. Sales volume was below our estimates of 1.66 lakh sq ft due to lower-than-expected sales of 9562 sq ft in Worli project (our expectation: 50000 sq ft) Revenues grew robustly by 19.1% YoY to Rs 345.0 crore and were slightly above our estimate of Rs 338.3 crore EBITDA margins expanded 80 bps YoY to 53.1% mainly on account of a change in the project mix. It was below our expectation of 54.3% PAT grew 40.4% YoY to Rs 142.9 crore (our estimate: Rs 114.4 crore) primarily due to topline growth and EBITDA margin expansion The board recommended a dividend of Rs 2.

Outlook

We like the company given the quality of land bank, its healthy balance sheet and management bandwidth to execute large projects. However, the sales momentum for ORL has been sluggish. Also, the stock has run up ~41% in the last one year. Hence, we await a better entry point. Consequently, we continue to maintain our HOLD recommendation on the stock with a revised target price of Rs 550.

Hot Value Stocks To Buy Right Now: Dunkin' Brands Group, Inc.(DNKN)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Ben Levisohn]

    The market is treating Chipotle as if it is an Amazon, Tesla, Apple or Google, when in fact all they do is make burritos. With the money it would cost you to buy Chipotle today @ $14 billion dollars you could buy Wendy’s (WEN), Cheesecake Factory (CAKE), Papa John’s International (PZZA), and Dunkin’ Brands (DNKN). Chipotle would need to generate at least $24 in earnings per share in order to justify the current market cap — they are not even expected to generate half of that next year. Chipotle is expected to report Q1 on April 25 and the market, in my opinion, has already more than priced in good news.

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018

A similar plant will be open in the UAE in the next few years.

Even in the Middle East, home to some of the world&a;rsquo;s largest oil and gas producers, the clean energy revolution is coming.

Thanks to its fast-growing population and rapid economic growth, its demand for energy is set to grow by 3.5 % a year over the next two decades, according to a new report from Siemens, the German conglomerate, and Masdar, the UAE clean energy developer.

Its energy demand is set to grow by 277GW by 2035, to 483GW. A fifth of that will be renewable, up from just over 5% now. An extra 61GW of solar power is expected to be installed over that period, with a conservative estimate of 27GW of wind, says the report, Middle East Power Outlook 2035, which was released at the start of Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week.

    "A trend we've seen developing slowly but steadily [is one] wherenew channels are being developed to reach cannabis consumers, primarily due to limits in advertising. There is so much regulation in the space that, in such an entrepreneurial environment where there are really no incumbent leaders, people are trying to be creative and figuring out ways to reach the cannabis consumer, both as an undeserved demographic and, just one that has still got that taboo around it, [leading] to larger players not necessarily getting involved yet."

Top Clean Energy Stocks To Buy For 2018: The Michaels Companies, Inc.(MIK)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Lange]

    Michaels Companies Inc. (NASDAQ: MIK) reported its fiscal third-quarter financial results before the markets opened on Thursday. The company said that it had $0.44 in earnings per share (EPS) and $1.24 billion in revenue. The consensus estimates from Thomson Reuters had called for $0.43 in EPS and revenue of $1.26 billion. The same period of last year reportedly had EPS of $0.40 and $1.23 billion in revenue.

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    After a year of stock price fluctuations, the net result is that MIK’s price has not changed very much. Although its weak earnings growth may have played a role in this flat result, don’t lose sight of the fact that the performance of the overall market, as measured by the S&P 500 Index, was essentially similar. Turning toward the future, the fact that the stock has come down in price over the past year should not necessarily be interpreted as a negative; it could be one of the factors that may help make the stock attractive down the road. Right now, however, we believe that it is too soon to buy.

    Earnings of note in the coming week include Analogic (ALOG) and Ascena Retail (ASNA) on Monday; Bojangles (BOJA) , H&R Block (HRB) , and Dick’s Sporting Goods (DKS) , Michaels (MIK) , and Urban Outfitters (URBN) on Tuesday; Ciena (CIEN) , Bankrate (RATE) , Express (EXPR) , Vera Bradley (VRA) , and Bob Evans Farms (BOBE) on Wednesday; El Pollo Loco (LOCO) , Hugo Boss (BOSSY) , Party City (PRTY) , Signet Jewelers (SIG) , and Verifone Systems (PAY) on Thursday; and Kirkland’s (KIRK) , and Vail Resorts (MTN) on Friday.

  • [By Jim Cramer]

    42.37% is the gross profit margin for MICHAELS COS INC which we consider to be strong. Regardless of MIK’s high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, the net profit margin of 6.57% trails the industry average.

    MICHAELS COS INC has improved earnings per share by 19.4% in the most recent quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($1.70 versus $1.04).

     

  • [By Laurie Kulikowski]

    We rate MICHAELS COS INC as a Sell with a ratings score of D+. This is driven by some concerns, which we believe should have a greater impact than any strengths, and could make it more difficult for investors to achieve positive results compared to most of the stocks we cover. Among the areas we feel are negative, one of the most important has been weak operating cash flow.
