CLSA maintained a buy rating on Amber Enterprises with a target price of Rs 3650. Q2 margins are tepid but the outlook is strong.

HSBC on HUL: Hold| Target Rs 2,700
HSBC downgraded Hindustan Unilever to hold from a buy earlier and slashed the target price to Rs 2,700 from Rs 2950 earlier.
Lacklustre Q2 performance hasn’t helped with areas of weakness persisting in the portfolio. Unless markets turn deeply risk-averse, they see little upside.
Motilal Oswal on PNB Housing Finance: Buy| Target Rs 950
Motilal Oswal upgraded PNB Housing Finance to a buy with a revised target price of Rs 950. PNB Housing Finance reported 46% YoY growth in 2QFY24 PAT to Rs 380 crore (In line). This was aided by ~90% QoQ increase in the other income and ~10bp QoQ decline in credit costs to ~0.3%.
Over the past year, PNBHF has transformed its business model toward Retail and reduced its corporate loan book to ~4% of the AUM mix. It targets to scale up affordable housing quarterly disbursements to Rs 10b in the short term.
PNB Housing has levers for NIM improvement through product diversification and potential decline in the borrowing costs. Asset quality improvement has made it eligible for NHB borrowings, and a potential credit rating upgrade will provide even better access to primary debt markets.
