Why are brokerages cautious?
Petchem business to remain muted
According to BOB Capital, RIL’s forthcoming earnings are going to remain a drag. The Refining and petrochemicals, which together make for over three-fourth of the company’s revenue took a major hit in the September quarter. And, post the resurgence of coronavirus in Europe, the global oil demand recovery has seen disruptions.
|Segment||Revenue segments in Q2|
|Petrochemicals||₹ 29,147 crore|
|Digital Services||₹267 crore|
|Oil and Gas||₹72 crore|
|Financial Services||₹326 crore|
In the second quarter, the gross refining margin (GRM) fell to $5.7 a barrel compared to $6.3 a barrel just three months ago. And, BOB Capital noted that RIL’s valuations are highly sensitive to GRM and petrochemical crack movements. But it also noted that “Better-than-expected recovery in global economies can raise these spreads and alter our valuation outlook.”
The Prabhudas Lilladher report dated October 31 said, “We lower our FY21 standalone earnings by 21% to factor in weak H1 performance. We also change our FY22-23E estimates to factor lower refining and petrochemical spreads and make changes in finance and depreciation charges.”
