Formula for Success

Dr. Reddy’s (-0.5%) is not screwing around. The pharmaceutical giant unveiled its future plans at its 2022 Analyst Day. 🔥 Here are the top takeaways:

– Dr. Reddy’s aims to diversify into high-growth areas like Biosimilars, Contract Development and Manufacturing, and Gene Cell Therapy under the “Horizon II” strategy. Dr. Reddy’s will invest heavily on R&D and pursue acquisition to scale up the new business. The company expects “Horizon II” to make up 25% of its topline by 2027. 💊

– Dr. Reddy’s is betting big on India and Europe. They aim to enter the top-5 club in India vs 10th as per current market share. Sales from the EU region +2x YoY in FY22. Expansion into more countries in the region plus new launches will act as key growth drivers. 📈

– Dr. Reddy’s guided for double-digit sales growth plus a 25% EBITDA margin and Return on Capital Employed (ROCE) over the medium term. They are also confident of more US FDA approvals on their drug pipeline and aim to launch three to five new products each year. ✅

Dr. Reddy’s positive business outlook comes as a breath of fresh air amidst recession fears. Dalal Street gave the announcement a big thumbs up as the stock jumped +2% intraday before cooling off to end flat. PS – Morgan Stanley sees a 20% upside from the current level. Watch out for this one. 🔥


Real Estate stocks continued to slide lower. The Nifty Real Estate Index (-2%) hit a new 52-week low as investors fear demand slowdown. 😟 

Inflation has pushed prices of day-to-day items higher which may force buyers to postpone any big-ticket purchases. Concerns over rising interest rates (i.e. higher interest lowers purchasing demand) plus moderation in Covid-related tailwinds like WFH also pose a serious risk. Q4 earnings for most companies were also disappointing as higher steel, cement, and fuel costs hurt profitability. 📊

Godrej Properties, DLF, and Kolte-Patil Developers slipped between 3%-4%. Check out their charts below: 📉
