Why Sunteck Realty Share Price is Falling

Dec 31, 2022

Why Sunteck Realty Share Price is Falling

In 2022, the Indian real estate sector marked a strong recovery from a lengthy period of economic stagnation.

The industry was able to breathe easier on the back of several factors including renewed housing sales, a boost in customers' demand and activity, and due to reducing unsold inventory.

Despite all this, shares of many real estate stocks have fallen in the last one month.

The correction was seen at a time when foreign investors (FIIs) poured Rs 31.5 billion (bn) in best realty stocks in December 2022.

Among the beaten down stocks from the sector is Sunteck Realty. The stock has fallen 18% in the past month.

Let's find out why...

Uncertain outlook due to rising interest rate

For the September 2022 quarter, Sunteck Realty posted a 40.7% year-on-year (YoY) decline in revenue, at Rs 807.5 million (m) from Rs 1.4 bn a year ago.

The net profit also declined by 84.7% YoY to Rs 23.3 m, as against Rs 152.6 m.

This decline was on the back of lower inventory sales in the Naigaon area. In the said quarter, the company was able to sell Rs 3.8 bn worth inventory from prior launches, while approximately Rs 6.8 bn of inventory still remains unsold.

This decline in sales can be attributed to increasing repo rates. The RBI is raising key rates to curb the inflation pressures. It has hiked repo rate by five times since May 2022.

RBI hiked the repo rate for the first time in May when the setting panel unanimously hiked the benchmark lending rate by 0.4%.

This was followed by an increase of 0.5% each in June, August and September. It further hiked rates by 0.35% in December. In total, the RBI has hiked the rate by 2.25%.

These continuous rate hikes have led to short-term turbulence in the overall housing demand.

This is because the repo rise has also increased the interest rates on housing loans, making them costlier for the borrower, reducing the affordability of purchasing the house, and creating a liquidity crunch in the market.

In addition, a dramatic rise in the cost of essential raw materials like steel and cement due to geopolitical worries, has driven up the cost.

As a result, the price of the luxury segment of the company saw a jump of 10-15% in the September 2022 quarter.

Also, with inflation kicking in, the disposable income of people have taken a hit.

These factors combined have impacted the performance of the company.

For the upcoming quarters, the company is planning to launch the towers at Sunteck OneWorld and 4th Avenue SunteckCity.

How Sunteck Realty shares have performed recently

Sunteck Realty shares have declined by more than 18% in the last month. Over the year, the stock is down more than 33%.

The company touched its 52-week high of Rs 589.9 on 18 January 2022 and its 52-week low of Rs 315 on 23 December 2022.

At the current price, the stock is trading at a price-to-book value multiple of 2.6.
