Amara Raja Batteries

Angel Broking's research report on Amara Raja Batteries (AMRJ)

"For 4QFY2013, Amara Raja Batteries  (AMRJ) posted lower-than-expected results on the bottom-line front despite a strong growth in the top-line. The performance was impacted due to operating margin pressures (due to increase in lead prices and higher share of traded goods) and also on account of higher depreciation and tax expense. AMRJ has announced an ambitious capital expenditure plan of Rs 760cr to ease the capacity constraints across the product segments that it is facing currently.

The company added 60 new clients during the quarter.

United Spirits

VK Sharma of HDFC Securities told CNBC-TV18, "If one were to look at United Spirits for the next two years or so, one can definitely look at a much higher levels. One just needs to remember that this was an excellent company with good products but run in a very bad manner. The cash resources of this company were being used for the group. 

Bajaj Finance
