ALERT: Railways withdraw ruling decision on IRCTC

VIEW: Revenue sharing with Indian Railways will impact IRCTC EBIT margin

As of November 1, 2021, the IRCTC will have to share 50% of the revenue generated from the convenience fees with Indian Railways. Currently, the share is NULL.

Impact: Our current estimate of IRCTC convenience costs is 7.4 billion rupees / 7.8 billion rupees for FY 23 / FY 24, respectively. MoR would mean that the ticketing division’s EBIT margin would drop from ~ 85% odd to ~ 48% odd in FY 23 / FY 24.

As a result, the reduction in the EPS estimate would be in the order of 28% / 27% to Rs44 / Rs49 for FY23 / FY24 respectively.

What is hurting the bulls in the market?

With the Nifty moving below the 20 day moving average, the market turned significantly weak. The major drag in the market now is the sustained sale of FII which hit Rs 3818 cr yesterday. It comes after foreign brokerage houses like Morgan Stanley, Nomura and UBS downgraded India due to excessive valuations. When smart money selling gets aggressive, the exuberance of retail is overwhelmed. It is happening now. Investors don’t have to rush to buy now; the buy-on-dip strategy, which has worked well since April of last year, may not work when FIIs sell heavily. Investors can therefore wait and observe the trend before making any decisions. However, switching from expensive broad market stocks to high quality large cap growth stocks can be a good idea.

The government asking the IRCTC to share a 50% convenience fee with the Ministry of Railways is another example that should warn investors of overly optimism when investing in PSU stocks. Improving shareholder returns is not the goal of PSUs. Investors should therefore be careful when looking for PSU stocks, even if they are cheap.
