In news from the auto ancillaries sector, shares of Amara Raja Batteries jumped around 5% in early trade today after the company posted robust numbers for the quarter ended June 2019.

The company's standalone net profit jumped 24.7% to Rs 1,409 million versus Rs 1,130 million, while revenues rose 2% at Rs 18,149 million versus Rs 17,787 million.

Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) jumped 26.6% at Rs 2,791 million, while margin was up 300 bps at 15.4%.

Reports state that company's performance was driven by 6% beat in net sales. The slowdown in original equipment (OE) sales, was more than compensated by the thriving replacement market. Overall sales volume rose by 7% year-on-year.

Inverter sales were flat and telecom sector continued its lackluster trajectory. However, strong market for uninterrupted power supply (UPS) driven by the industrial segment offset this.

Amara Raja Batteries share price is presently trading up by 1.2%.

Last week, the company defaulted on commercial papers worth Rs 450 million and interest payment on NCDs. This was the fourth default by the company in last one month.

Lenders have turned cautious after Cox & Kings defaulted on commercial paper of Rs 2 billion in the last few days and are looking at ways to address the tour operator's debt issues.

The company has a total debt of Rs 32.4 billion at the end of FY19 which includes short and long-term loans.

The defaults have stumped lenders and stock market as the company had reported of a comfortable liquidity position.

CARE ratings also downgraded the tour operator's rating to 'default' grade, as it grappled with a cash crunch to service its debt and other obligations.

According to a recent note by CARE Ratings, Cox & Kings had reported cash and bank balances of Rs 17.3 billion in June. Of this, it told CARE, that there was about Rs 13 billion, which could be used for debt repayment at any point of time.

It is interesting to note that the stock of Cox & Kings has been a falling knife in the last few years. The stock is down more than 80% in the last 5 years.

Whereas, the stock that we recommended in Smart Money Secrets has been a consistent performer.

Just have a look at the chart below.

Divergence in Stock Performance

As Sarvajeet Bodas writes in a recent edition of The 5 Minute WrapUp...

  • No wonder, Cox & Kings share price has lost 87% since 2018 and fallen 78% since the beginning of this year.

    Sure, the travel & tourism industry has a great runway for growth ahead.

    India is likely to become the third-largest tourism economy in the next 10 years. Not to mention, all the key triggers are in place for this industry to take off.

    Rising disposable incomes. A rapidly expanding the middle class. Urbanisation. Easy access to technology. The expansion of budget airlines.

    However, to ride this industry tailwinds, your side-car investing journey has to be in the company with a strong track record, ethical management and strong financials.

In Smart Money Secrets, we prefer companies which are run by excellent management, showing prudent capital allocation, businesses which have scalability, and a competitive advantage.
