Foreign brokerage Nomura has downgraded Cummins India to ‘reduce’ from ‘neutral’ citing an expensive valuation. The brokerage has also cut FY20 and FY21 EPS estimates by 6 per cent and 1 per cent, respectively, on weaker than earlier estimated EBITDA margins. Cummins stock has rallied 9 per cent in the last two months despite not so impressive March quarter results, largely after the new government was re-elected, leading to infra-related optimism. The rally, according to Nomura has moved ahead of the fundamentals and resulting in a case for a significant correction. “We value Cummins at a reduced PE of 22.5x (vs 25x) due to weak outlook on FY21 estimated EPS to arrive at a target price of Rs 700, -10 per cent downside and downgrade to reduce from neutral,” said a note by Nomura.
