Marico announced their Q2 results; Net Profit jumps by 18% to Rs 212 crores-

FMCG major Marico’s second quarter net profit grew by 18 percent year-on-year to Rs 218.3 crore despite weak operating margin due to higher copra prices. Let us take a look at the key insights of their report-

  • Profit in corresponding period last year stood at Rs 185 crore.
  • Revenue from operations increased 19.6 percent year-on-year to Rs 1,836.8 crore in quarter ended September 2018, with an underlying volume growth in the India business (as well as overall) of 6 percent against 8 percent year-ago.
  • The volume growth lower than the medium term aspiration was largely due to a significant decline in CSD sales, the company reasoned.
  • While overall consumption trends seemed normal, volume growth in the India business was dampened by a double-digit volume decline in canteen stores department (CSD) sales. Underlying volume growth ex-CSD was 7 percent.
  • The company further said value growth for the quarter was driven by price hikes taken in the core portfolios to counter the input cost inflation over the last year.


Executive Summary: Consolidated Results-

  • International business posted a broad-based constant currency growth of 11 percent, led by volume growth of 8 percent YoY. Vietnam, which was lagging for over a year, bounced back to double-digit growth on a constant currency basis.
  • At operating level, EBITDA (earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation) grew by 13.5 percent to Rs 294 crore, but margin contracted 85 bps to 16 percent YoY due to higher crude oil prices.
  • The company said pressure on margins was gross margin led due to consumption of higher cost copra inventory during the quarter and inflation in other commodities, which was partially offset by price hikes and operating leverage benefits.
  • The India business operating margin (before corporate allocations) was at 18 percent in Q2FY19 against 18.5 percent in Q2FY18. Advertising and promotion spends perked up during the quarter

Indian Indices remain flat as there was indecision between BULLS and BEARS-

Chart source- Upstox

Indian markets remained flat as there was absolutely no movement seen in Nifty. As you can see in the box given above. Nifty opened higher today but could not sustain those levels and fell back from today’s high. Nifty as expected by our experts in PURPLE TRADES  wasn’t able to breach the levels of 10,400. For some part of the day it was able to go above 10,400 but couldn’t sustain those levels and fell below. First session of November 2018 began on a subdued note, with the Nifty ending below 10,400-mark. Banks were the gainers during the session, while infrastructure and metals rose during trade as well. Pharmaceuticals, IT, and consumption names were the big losers in trade today. However, there was some outperformance in the broader markets, with the Nifty Midcap index rising a percent. At the close of market hours, the Sensex closed down 10.08 points or 0.03% at 34431.97, while the Nifty ended lower by 6.10 points or 0.06% at 10380.50. The market breadth is positive as 1,590 shares advanced, against a decline of 990 shares, while 124 shares were unchanged. Yes Bank, Axis Bank, and Hindalco were the top gainers, while Infosys, NTPC, HCL Tech and Dr Reddy’s Labs lost the most.

Nifty could not breach 10,400 as it was a major resistance as predicted yesterday by our experts in Purple Trades. To read the predicted report click below-


Let’s take a look at the performance of major Indices-

Global markets had a mixed day today as US market Index NASDAQ had a BULLISH day. FTSE and CAC were seen in the RED but DAX was in the GREEN. Nikkei was also seen in the RED but Strait Times was in the GREEN. So the overall breath of today’s global market was also indecisive just like Indian Markets.
