Snapshots of the companies in my watch list. Some of them are already in my portfolio. Some of them are still in the waiting list for the right time to buy at right price.

11 companies for my portfolio!

For the last couple of months, I have been working to filter out companies in my portfolio to reduce the number of companies from the 54 to 20 or 30.  To find out the ones that I want to keep, I put all my companies to a quantitative test with investment criteria of Benjamin Graham, Kenneth Fisher and Martin Zweig as I mentioned in one of my recent posts.  I decided to keep those companies that pass any one of these three filters – and I got just 11!

Fate of Hero Honda

It was all bad news for Hero Honda for the last few months. It has been struggling with the situation of increasing competition from its peers and interest rate hike that may hurt its sales while the rumours of stake sale by Honda added fuel to fire.

I have been buying Hero Honda since March 2010 and my average cost is 1,852.22. I bought 4 lots of equal value since March and have paid as high as 1,967.65 in April and 1,709.70 this month. The rumour of Honda leaving the joint venture hit the stock hard. However both the parties – Honda and Hero Group – have denied the news. Though the effect of interest rate hike on the sales will be short lived, the intense competition from existing players like Bajaj and TVS and new entrants like Mahindra and Mahindra will be a real concern going forward. I will continue to hold what I already have for the time being, but will not be buying more until the cloud is cleared.

Honda leaving the Joint Venture

News of Honda offloading its 26 per cent stake in the joint venture Hero Honda Motors Ltd has been in the air for some time now. However the management of both the companies have denied it. Market analysts said Honda’s exit from the company is likely to drive down the valuation of the Hero Honda script on concerns that the company may not have access to the latest two-wheeler technology.

Hero Honda: Going it alone
Business Standard, Sep 4, 2010
The implications of Honda pulling out of the company are still being worked out and a possible re-rating is expected. Concerns exist over the fate of Hero Honda, especially with regard to Honda possibly selling its 26 per cent stake to the promoters and exiting the company. In fact, even as any such deal is yet to be announced, analysts have started to work out the implications.

Uncertainty over JV clouds Hero Honda
Livemint, Sep 6, 2010
Analysts say that despite its large vendor base and indigenization, HHML almost entirely depends on Honda for engine technology. Its power-packed brands—Splendor and Passion— that have catapulted the firm’s brand equity, have Honda’s engine technology. If HHML goes on its own, it would have to invest significant amounts into research and development (R&D) to keep pace in the marketplace. Another option will be to scout for a new technology partner. But this would warrant a brand relaunch, which, in turn, could mean marketing costs and risk of product acceptance.

JV break-up a near-term pain for both
Business Standard, Sep 9, 2010
Analysts say, given that the high growth phase in the motorcycles business is past us and with key urban markets saturated, both parties will have to think hard about going separate ways. If Honda decides to exit Hero Honda, the latter’s scrip is likely to tank and shareholders might be looking at large losses. However, if Honda were to buy Hero’s stake, it could see a major rerating, especially if HMSI is then integrated into the company, believes Umesh Karne of BRICS Securities.

Impact of Interest Rate Hike

Hero Honda Expects India Motorcycle Sales to Slow on Rising Interest Rates
Bloomberg, August 24, 2010
Hero Honda Motors Ltd., maker of about half the motorcycles sold in India, said demand will grow more slowly this year as the central bank raises interest rates to pare inflation. India may take further steps to damp rising prices, Sud said, after four interest-rate increases since March failed to bring inflation down from near 10 percent. Rising prices have stoked public protests and sap demand for motorcycles in India, the world’s second-biggest two-wheeler market. State Bank of India, the country’s biggest bank, raised its benchmark lending rate to 12.25 percent from 11.75 percent last week. ICICI Bank Ltd., the second largest, increased its prime lending rate to 16.25 percent from 15.75 percent.

Competition and Sales Growth

Hero Honda reported a slow 2% YoY increase in sales during the month of August 2010. This seems to be particularly low when compared to the sales volumes of other two-wheeler majors in the country. For instance, TVS Motor reported a 34% YoY rise in volumes, while Suzuki Motorcycle reported a 51% YoY increase in volumes during the month. India Yamaha Motor on the other hand reported a 30% YoY rise in volume sales during the month. Bajaj Auto saw its sales volumes improve by 55% YoY during the month. – Equity Master

Hero Honda on 2nd September launched the new model of Super Splendor that comes with ‘Honda intelligent ignition system’ (HIIS). Priced at Rs.45,950, the new bike features a newly designed carburettor for improved engine performance and five-step adjustable rear shock-absorber for smoother drive and comfort. – The Hindu


Crompton Greaves Limited

Crompton Greaves one of the India’s large private sector enterprises, has diversified business model  in designing, manufacturing and marketing technologically advanced electrical products and services related to power generation, transmission and distribution, besides executing turnkey projects. The company is the single largest source for a wide variety of electrical equipments and products. With several international acquisitions, Crompton Greaves is fast emerging as a first choice global supplier for high quality electrical equipment. The company addresses all the segments of the power industry from complex industrial solutions to basic household requirements.

The company is organized into three business groups viz. Power Systems, Industrial Systems, Consumer Products. Presently, the company is offering wide range of products such as power & industrial transformers, HT circuit breakers, LT & HT motors, DC motors, traction motors, alternators/ generators, railway signalling equipments, lighting products, fans, pumps and public switching, transmission and access products. In addition to offering broad range of products, the company undertakes turnkey projects from concept to commissioning. Apart from this, CG exports its products to more than 60 countries worldwide, which includes the emerging South-East Asian and Latin American markets.

Recent Developments

Crompton Greaves Ltd just concluded an arrangement for the acquisition of 3 businesses on a slump sale basis. The first one is Traction Electronics which deals with railways as the main customer. The second one is Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), of which the main customers the railways, Power Grid Corporation of India, NTPC, all utilities which do the transmission and distribution of electricity. The third one is Industrial Drives which is controlling the speed of the motors for energy efficiency through a variable voltage or variable frequency drives. For the year ending is September 2010, they hope to do a sale of about Rs 115 crore. These units have an opportunity to grow compounded at an annual growth rate of 30%. In five years time this should be a major business for Crompton Greaves.

Crompton Greave’s acquisitions over last five years overseas include PTS, Pauwels, Ganz, Microsol, MSE power and Sonomatra. PTS is a UK-based electrical engineering firm with rich exposure to comprehensive electrical engineering space and diverse clientele base in the UK. Pauwels with manufacturing facilities in five locations—Belgium, Canada, the US, Ireland and Indonesia – was catering to the US and west European markets. The Hungarian switchgears maker Ganz was selling in markets like the Middle-East and Eastern Europe. Microsol Holdings in Ireland provides automated technologies for running sub-stations. France-based Sonomatra will help enhance the Company’s capabilities in the services segment of its transmission & distribution business. US-based MSE Power would help to increase its strength as a systems integrator in the engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) international business arena, particularly in the renewable energy (wind) segment. MSE recently purchased wind-turbine monitoring technology from Second Wind Systems Inc.

Prospects

All economic indicators point towards the manufacturing sector being the future driver of India’s economic growth. India is today preferred destination for sourcing various engineering goods not only due to low cost but also due to high quality of products. Strong positioning in the domestic transformer market, steady profit margins despite competitive pressures and continuing inorganic growth augur well for the company’s earnings growth.

The concern is the threat of imminent competition from global players who are already in the process of setting up manufacturing facilities in India. The market is expected to remain competition with an added element of competition from imported products. Chinese and Korean players are biggest competitors for Crompton Greaves.

While European  subsidiaries have been unable to grow in 2009-10 owing to unfavourable economic conditions in Europe and North America, return to growth  is expected from 2010-11. Recent acquisition of Power Technology Solutions (PTS) will help to expand its geographical reach! PTS is also looking to tap the opportunity in the renewable energy space, a growing market in the UK.

The scenario for the Indian Economy in general and that for the Capital Goods Industry in particular has undoubtedly improved to an extent, after the political stability in the country along with the easing liquidity situation and the offshoots of recovery in the global economy. The capital goods companies catering to the Power Sector will continue to enjoy a degree of comfort, owing to the government’s thrust on this core sector. However the sector has its own set of issues, with around 49% of the planned power projects for the Eleventh Plan already running behind schedule.
