Would You Really Want to Miss It?

Coming to corporate earnings, Hindustan Petroleum Corporation (HPCL) on Thursday reported a 40% drop in net profit in the quarter ended March 2022 as higher refining margins were wiped away by losses on auto fuel sales.

The company's chairman and Managing Director Pushp Kumar Joshi, at a media call, said the company earned US$ 12.44 on turning every barrel of crude oil into fuel in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2021-22.

This is against a gross refining margin (GRM) of US$ 8.11 per barrel in the same quarter a year back.

HPCL and other PSU oil companies held petrol and diesel prices for a record duration despite a surge in crude oil prices to a 14-year high. They started raising prices only on 22 March.

For the year 2021-22, HPCL has proposed a final dividend of Rs 14 per share.

Another company which declared results yesterday was drugmaker Dr Reddy's Lab.

During market hours yesterday, Dr Reddy's Lab reported its quarterly results where profit after tax plunged 76% to Rs 875 m. This compared with Rs 3.6 bn in the same quarter a year ago.

The drug major accounted Rs 7.5 bn towards impairment charges of non-current assets during the fourth quarter.

Shares of HPCL and Dr Reddy's Lab are currently trading up by 0.2% and 4.6%, respectively.

In news from the semiconductor space, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is considering building a new multibillion-dollar factory in Singapore to help tackle the global chip shortage.

According to reports, negotiations are under way with the Economic Development Board (EDB).

The Singapore Government may help to fund construction of the plant.

Note that 2021 and 2022 were good years for the semiconductor industry as demand surged. However, the pandemic caused disruptions which throttled supply.

The demand-supply mismatch resulted in semiconductor stocks seeing a sharp rally and touching their all-time highs.

Recently, we wrote about the top semiconductor companies in India and why they should be on your watchlist.

Global semiconductor giants are showing interest to set shop in India and giving India's semiconductor plans a much-needed push.

For instance, international semiconductor consortium ISMC will invest a whopping US$3 bn in setting up a semiconductor chip-making plant in Karnataka.

EXPOSED: The Shocking Truth Behind Today's Hottest Investment Opportunity

Speaking of semiconductor stocks, note that TSMC is the largest contract manufacturer of semiconductor chips in the world. The company manufactures chips for major tech firms such as Apple, Nvidia, Intel, Qualcomm, etc.

It is also one of the most successful companies whose stock has been a big wealth creator.


Can Indian companies involved in this space also see such massive gains?

In January, we wrote a piece on what Indian companies can learn from this giant. You can read it here.

Meanwhile, also check out Co-head of Research at Equitymaster Tanushree Banerjee's video on India's best semiconductor stocks.

Moving on to latest developments from the IPO space, Rustomjee group company Keystone Realtors is likely to file a draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with the market regulator soon for an initial public offering (IPO) of around Rs 10 bn.

Recently, the company raised Rs 1/7 bn through pre-IPO placement. The deal comprised primary infusion and witnessed participation from HDFC Capital, IIFL Group, and the family office of Jagdish Master.

With this, Keystone will become the fourth real estate company to go public in the past decade.

Puranik Builders is another realty company planning to go public this year. The company already received approval in November last year.

We will keep you updated on the latest developments from this space. Stay tuned.
