Strong growth across segments

The company's revenue from the fans segment grew on account of a strong performance in the premium and decorative segment while the pumps segment grew due to demand of residential pumps.

The appliances business continued to deliver strong growth based on excellent consumer offerings of core categories such as coolers, geysers, and mixer grinders.

The company's lighting business also continued to deliver double digit EBIT margins.

The company's growth momentum during the March 2021 quarter continued until early April when the second wave impacted the business.

After a rough period from mid-April, business recovery began in early June with the easing of lockdown restrictions.

While commenting on the June quarter financials of Crompton Greaves Consumer Electricals, managing director Shantanu Khosla said,

  • ECD segment delivered strong growth across categories and geographies.

Equitymaster on capital goods stocks

Here's what Aditya Vora, Financial Writer at Equitymaster, wrote about the capital goods sector in one of the editions of Profit Hunter:

  • I'm a firm proponent of the economic revival theme in the stock market. I'm bullish on capital goods and infrastructure stocks.

    These sectors have emerged stronger from an elongated down cycle. There is also a strong momentum in economic indicators which is in favour of these stocks.

    Indicators like rising construction equipment sales, record highway construction run rate, capacity expansion by private players in the cement, metals, and consumer durables gives us confidence of a strong capex cycle ahead.

    There may be a near term speed bump to the economic recovery due to the third wave. However, I believe we are at an inflection point with regards to the capex cycle.

    The cycle has turned up.

The recent Hidden Treasure recommendation is a fundamentally strong business in the capital goods space that is 'essential' to the infrastructure revival. You can read the report here (requires subscription).
