14th Motilal Oswal Wealth Creation Study

Mumbai, India (PressExposure) December 22, 2009 -- Every year, Mr Raamdeo Agrawal, Managing Director of Motilal Oswal Group, commissions an Annual Wealth Creation Study. The Motilal Oswal 14th Annual Wealth Creation Study (2004-09) is divided into three parts - 1. Wealth Creation Study findings 2. Winner Categories + Category Winners = Formula for Wealth Creation in the NTD Era 3. Market Outlook

Part 1: Wealth Creation Study findings

Part 1 analyzes the top 100 wealth creating companies during the period 2004-09. (Wealth created is calculated as change in the market cap of companies between 2003 and 2009, duly adjusted for corporate events such as mergers, de-mergers, fresh issuance of capital, buyback, etc.)

The key highlights of this section are: • Reliance Industries has emerged as the biggest wealth creator for the third time in a row. It has created 1514 billion RS worth of wealth contributing 15.6% of total wealth created in FY09. • Unitech is the Fastest Wealth Creator during 2004-09, for the second time in a row. Its 5-year stock price CAGR is a staggering 122% • Five companies - HDFC, Sun Pharma, Reliance Inds, Hero Honda and Infosys - have featured among the top 100 wealth creators in each of the last 10 years. HDFC is ranked as the most consistent by virtue of its 10-year price CAGR being the highest. • For the last six years, the biggest wealth creator in India has emerged from Oil & Gas - the first three years led by ONGC and next three by Reliance. • This year, NMDC has the unique distinction of featuring in both the biggest and the fastest wealth creators list. • This year, eight of the top 10 most consistent wealth creators are consumer-facing businesses with strong franchise.

• Comparing the performance of the top 100 Wealth Creating companies(Wealthex); over the entire period, the Wealthex outperformed the Sensex by 83%, Wealthex earnings CAGR was 24.2% compared to 18.8% for the Sensex and the Wealthex P/E was 16.3x, lower than 16.8x for the Sensex.

• Oil & Gas continues to be the largest wealth creating sector. However, over the last five years, its share has fallen from 43% of wealth created to 22%, clearly indicating value cmigration to sectors such as Telecom and FMCG. Telecom's rising share of wealth created can be attributed to superior PAT CAGR of 62% over the last 5 years. On the other hand, FMCG PAT CAGR is a muted 14%; however, the sector has seen a valuation re-rating, more so given the flight to safety phenomenon during the market downturn in FY09.

• FY04-09 marks a semblance of the MNC resurgence, with number of top wealth creating companies more than doubling from 10 to 23 and share of wealth created increasing from 7% to 14%. A major factor for this resurgence is FMCG, led by ITC, Hindustan Unilever and Nestle.

• 74 of the top 100 wealth creating companies had a base market cap of less than Rs50b in 2004.

• A sure shot formula for multi-baggers is - - P/E of less than 10x - Price/Book of less than 1x - Price/Sales of 1x or less - Payback ratio of 1x or less.

• Of the top 100 wealth creators, 66 were companies which enjoyed entry barriers. These companies accounted for a disproportionate 86% share of the total wealth created.

Part 2: Winner Categories + Category Winners: Formula for Wealth Creation

The theme of this year's study outlines a winning formula for wealth creation

1. Winner Categories = Categories benefiting from India's Next Trillion Dollar GDP opportunity + Scalability

2. Category Winners = Winner Categories + Entry Barriers + Great management

3. Winning investments = Category Winners + Reasonable valuation

Winner Categories: India's NTD Era will see a huge boom in consumption and savings/investment, which will throw up several Winner Categories i.e. those which grow at over 1.5x GDP growth rate, and are consolidated in nature. The study identifies 21 Winner Categories:

1.	Alcoholic beverages				12. Finance - Housing
2.	Auto - 2 wheelers				13. FMCG - Personal Care
3.	Auto - Cars & UVs				14. FMCG - Processed Food
4.	Auto - Tractors					15. Gas distribution
5.	Capital Goods - Power equipment		16. Infrastructure	
6.	Construction					17. Insurance
7.	Engineering - Turnkey				18. Media - Entertainment
8.	Finance - Banks, Private Sector			19. Real Estate 
9.	Finance - Banks, Public Sector			20. Retailing
10.	Finance - Brokerages				21. Telecom
11.	Finance - Credit rating 

Category Winners: These are companies from Winner Categories, which have high Entry Barriers and great managements.

Winning investments: Category Winners bought at reasonable (not necessarily cheap) valuation create significant wealth over the long term. The study constructs a model portfolio for the NTD Era, based on the above principles.

Model portfolio for India's NTD Era
•	Auto - 2 wheelers :			Hero Honda
•	Auto - Cars & UVs:			Maruti Suzuki
•	Auto - Cars & UVs/tractors:		Mahindra & Mahindra
•	Capital Goods - Power equipment:	BHEL
•	Engineering - Turnkey:			Larsen and Toubro
•	Finance - Banks, Private Sector:	HDFC Bank
•	Finance - Banks, Public Sector:		SBI
•	Finance - Credit rating:			CRISIL
•	Finance Housing:			HDFC
•	FMCG Personal Care:			Dabur India
•	FMCG Processed food:			Nestle India
•	Infrastructure:				Mundra Port
•	Media - Entertainment:			Sun TV
•	Retailing:				Pantaloon Retail
•	Telecom:				Bharti Airtel

Part 3: Market Outlook

• Corporate profit to GDP has bottomed out and should hit new highs in the next 4-5 years on the back of sustained economic performance. • Sensex EPS: Expect 15-20% growth beyond FY11; but no significant P/E re-rating from current levels. • Despite expected Sensex EPS growth of 25%+ in FY11, markets are unlikely to cross earlier peak of 21,000 in next 12 months. • Inflation concerns, strong pipeline of issuances and current rich valuation will cap significant market upmove, despite fairly healthy earnings outlook.
