The fall in revenue and the net loss that Titan reported in the previous quarter was largely aided by store closures.

However, the company has reported better than expected recovery with sales surging in the months of June and July. During the quarter, jewellery segment revenue dipped 55.9% on-year basis and revenue from watches plunged 89.5% from the previous year.

The EBITDA loss came in at Rs 2.5 billion for the quarter as compared to an EBITDA of Rs 5.7 billion.

Titan said that all stores are not operating on all days in all the states due to intermittent lockdowns and local restrictions. The company expects revenue to be back to pre-coronavirus levels by the end of this fiscal year.

Ace investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala held a 4.43% stake in the company at the end of June. The sharp decline in share price resulted in Rakesh Jhunjhunwala losing as much as Rs 2 billion of his investment in the stock.

Titan share price is presently trading down by 3.3%.

Moving on to news from the pharma sector, Dr Reddy's Laboratories today announced the launch of a generic version of Ciprodex (ciprofloxacin 0.3% and dexamethasone 0.1%) Otic Suspension in the American market, following approval from the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA).

Ciprodex is used in adults and children 6 months of age or older to treat certain types of infections caused by certain germs called bacteria.

"We are pleased to launch this first-to-market generic product, illustrating our continued commitment to bring affordable generic medicines to market for patients. At the same time, this product demonstrates that we are actively expanding the depth of our portfolio with our first otic suspension dosage form," the company said in a release.

The Ciprodex brand had US sales of approximately US$ 453 million MAT (moving annual turnover) for the most recent 12 months ending in June 2020, the drug maker said.

Last month, the company had posted a 12.6% year-on-year (YoY) drop in net profit at Rs 5,793 million for the quarter ended June 30.

Consolidated revenue increased by 14.9% YoY to Rs 44.2 billion during the quarter under review.

Dr Reddy's share price is presently trading down by 2.5%.

Here's an interesting data on Dr. Reddy's Lab, investing just Rs 100,000 in Dr. Reddy's Labs in 1992, it would have given a whopping Rs 4.89 crores in 2014!

Co-head of Research, Tanushree Banerjee believes, the opportunities in the Rebirth of India are not only more profitable than the ones in 1991 but the gains could come faster too.
