When You Think Electric Vehicles, Think of this Indian Tech Stock

Electric vehicles, or EVs, are the future.

They are also a potentially big money-making opportunity.

Now, the important question is this...

Is there a way to tap into the EV opportunity right here in India? Yes, there is.

And you will find full details in this note here...

Tata Motors' commercial vehicle (CV) and passenger vehicle (PV) businesses put together reflect a bigger decline in segment-specific revenues when compared with that of Jaguar Land Rover (JLR). The CV and PV businesses posted Q1FY20 revenue of Rs 143.1 billion, declining from Rs 172.9 billion a year earlier.

In comparison, JLR's Q1FY20 revenue fell to Rs 456.6 billion from Q1FY19 revenue of Rs 482.2 billion.

Reacting to the losses, company's CFO said "Q1FY20 was the worst in terms of market demand as the slowdown turned out to be more than what was anticipated. The first quarter saw stress in liquidity and financing for CVs and PVs."

He added that the demand environment in the China market, the single-biggest for JLR where the carmaker had reported a sharp drop of 34% YoY in sales in FY19, is turning stable as the company continued to make interventions.

Top 3 stocks for 2020 and beyond

These 3 cutting edge tech stocks could generate potentially life-changing gains in the long run.

Today, very few people know about the exponential growth potential of these stocks.

But once the broader market gets a whiff of it... there is no limit to how high their stock prices may rise.

On the domestic front, the total PV sales of Tata Motors declined 29% YoY to 42,034 units in the June quarter. Sale of CVs reported a decline of 15% YoY to 89,845 units last quarter. Revenue from the PV business dropped 6% in the quarter to Rs 31.9 billion.

Speaking of automobiles stocks, BSE Auto index is down 35% since the start of this year.

Multiple factors have affected the auto sector of late.

The liquidity crisis faced by NBFCs, regulatory changes leading to increased costs, new emission norms... they have all taken their toll.

Also, this sector is ripe for disruption with electric vehicles and ride sharing applications.

The coming one year will be a real test for India's auto companies.

It will also tell us if this slowdown is temporary or if there has been a structural change in the sector.

Richa Agarwal, editor of Hidden Treasure believes that the companies which will adapt their business models to the rapidly changing environment will survive and thrive.

In fact, she has picked out 4 Rebound Stocks to profit from the market crash.

Moving on to news from the banking sector, as per reports, TPG Capital's Indian private equity arm Advent International Corporation are among institutional investors that will infuse fresh capital into Yes Bank.

As per an article in a leading financial daily, TPG and Advent International are the front runners. They will most likely invest around US$ 350 million each. The amounts to be invested are currently being negotiated.

The bank will issue new shares through the preferential allotment route to TPG and Advent International to raise the money.

The private lender has met around 76 firms including PE funds, high net-worth individuals and investment managers over the past few months to seek funds.

Earlier this month, Chief Executive Ravneet Gill announced that the bank would raise US$ 1.2 billion and is in discussions with several private equity players.

The bank has exposures to many debt-laden companies currently in the news including Rs 37 billion to Dewan Housing Finance Corporation and Rs 5.5 billion in Jet Airways.
