How Macquarie arrived at target price of Rs 1,000 for LIC 

Suresh Ganapathy of Macquarie Capital Securities tells CNBC-TV18 that one has to look at the fact that the embedded value obviously is the biggest component or valuation for LIC, whereas its new business value accretion to the overall value is pretty low. "When you give a multiple on this new business, it moves the valuation for the private sector players, but doesn't do it for LIC. Largely, what happens is that whatever the embedded value forecasts are become a true measure of value and on that you can at least give one time price to EV and that is how we are looking at it," he explains.

IT may lead downside in market should Nifty fall to 14,000-15,000 levels: Mehraboon J Irani 

Market expert Mehraboon J Irani is of the view that IT pack will lead the drop in the market should the Nifty50 fall to 14,000-14,500-15,000-odd levels. IT companies take at least three years to improve their margins by 0.5 percent and travel as well as attrition costs have come down for most of them coming from the COVID-19 scenario, he says. "As attrition is happening again, the cost is going up, staff cost going up and travel expenses going up. So margins are not going to improve," he says.

He believes the Indian IT story looks good. But he's in no hurry to recommend IT from investing or trading angles. "Traders can do what they want, if they feel that they can sell at higher levels, they can buy right now, they are great names to buy into. But from a longer-term investment angle, despite good stories behind them, good growth ahead of them, at the present valuations I am still possibly not in a hurry to recommend them," he adds.

Jaguar Land Rover could report negative EBIT this quarter in worst case: Tata Motors Group CFO 

PB Balaji, Group CFO at Tata Motors, says it is possible that JLR could report a negative EBIT this quarter in the worst case scenario. "We want to avoid it but the situation is so fluid that it is not something that we will be able to predict at this point... However, we should not forget that first quarter is always a seasonally weak one coming off a strong fourth quarter. That is why the first quarter is something that we should probably look at,” he says. 

The company is dealing with an overall semiconductor situation in multiple ways, he says. "We are ensuring that transparency and visibility are provided to vendors. Secondly, wherever possible, long-term contracts are also being struck so that we are ensuring supply security. Thirdly, we are working on redesigning the entire semiconductor supply chain including the ECUs that we have so that we are able to reduce the chip intensity on those ECUs," he says. 

He also says the company should see a sequential improvement from the second half of the year but "the slope or the curve could be steeper than what we would like”, he adds.
