1. Introduction
In developing country like India people used to believe in secured and risk free
investment pattern but now the trend is changing and new investment options are
emerging in our economy. Now people are investing directly in stocks for higher returns.
But direct investment is very risky. It is important to know whether the company is
expected to grow or not. It can be known by fundamental and Technical Analysis of the
company. If the revenues, profit and future market prices are expected to grow it is a
worth company to purchase. These ways are justifications for investing or not investing
in a company.

1.1 About the Work Place

I under took my training at Dhanvarsha Fincap Pvt. Ltd. in Ahmedabad. It is a

share broking firm promoted by Mr. Nilesh Kotak. The company is engaged in
business of trading, mutual funds advices, portfolio management and equity
research. Mr. Nilesh Kotak is in the field since longer period of time and has
excelled in his field. Presently he is advisor on Investment and gives advices
on media via CNN channel. He is also regular column writer for the articles
guiding for investment in Shares and Future and Options. His articles are
mainly published in Gujarat Samachar, BlueChips and many other reputed
Newspapers. It has a strong customer base of more than two thousand and is
operating on BSE and NSE. Mr Bankim Thakkar who helps Mr. Nilesh Kotak
and has his proprietary firm named Vaishali Securities is equally
knowledgeable and he also writes articles on the same.

In trading equity research plays important role as it is important

to know whether the script in which the customers are investing is really
worth and whether their will be benefited or not. They include both
Fundamental and Technical analysis for the prediction.

Along with trading, due to increasing demand of investment in Mutual

Fund they are also concentrating on this market and leading toward the
Portfolio Management of their customers for providing them with higher
returns by applying their knowledge and as timely availability of customer’s
money on their requirement basis.
1.2 Objectives
 To learn how to do Equity Research.
 Doing analysis of the company on the basis of secondary data.
 To analyze and study the risk associated with every investment like Business
Risk, Financial Risk and Market Risk.
 Projecting their future on the basis of financial data and determining the
reasons for their good or bad performance in the market and also to estimate
its future market value.
1.3 Operating Method

Below given steps are followed in their chronological order:

 Selection of Economy for investment

 Selection of Sector
 Selection of Company
 Collecting historical data
 Estimation of forthcoming years

Data required for Study

 Company details
 Financial data
 Director’s and Auditor’s report
 Current news about the company and sector

Scope of Work
 Study was done on the basis of data available on net.
 Visit of the company was not feasible
 Newspapers, magazines and stock market scenario were also taken into

Study based on literature

From available books, internet, newspapers.
 Basic Concepts
 Analysis Method
 Ratios
1.4. Fundamental Analysis

Fundamental analysis is seeking the reason for the price

change or for its prediction. It is a logical method. Fundamental Analysis uses the
financial statements of the company to investigate the value of the company with regard
to its potential growth in earnings. It starts with abroad analysis of the economy:
economy growth, inflation, unemployment, money supply and the level and direction of
interest rates.

By considering the indicators that affect the economy,

financial analysts can then forecast future levels of GDP. These forecasts are used as a
basis for projecting the future sales and earnings of the companies within these
industries. Fundamentalists then select the common stock with favorable sectors of the
economy. This method of forecasting is called top- down approach. The other approach
financial analyst use is the bottom- top approach, which starts with sales and earnings
projections for companies in different sectors of the economy in which they are. The
analyst look for certain characteristics of the companies as basis for selection as low
sales- to –price- earning ratio, low p/e ratio, or small or mid cap stocks.

The procedure to do fundamental analysis is first select the

country or economy for investment. Then select the sector on the basis of certain factors
like most upcoming, current market scenario, future potential, government support,
demand, past performance, etc. Then select the company on the basis as told above. In
bottom-up technique sales is forecasted on the basis of current new, past of the
company, certain triggers which can affect its sales or profit margin. Then other
calculations are done on the sales basis or are budgeted and net profit is arrived. Finally
the discounted cash flow statement is made to arrive at target price. Finally the ratios
are calculated which tell about valuation of the company like ROE,EPS,P/E,etc.
1.5. Technical Analysis

Technical analysis is not at all concerned about the

fundamental factors of the company and the economic environment. Instead, it focuses
on the company’s historical stock price movements and the trading volume of the stock.
From the information technical analyst will predict future stock price of the stock. The
technician focuses on shorter time horizon then fundamental analyst.

Most large broking firms rely on technical analysis for their

selection of the stock. As doing fundamental analysis of each and every firm would be
difficult and tedious as it is time consuming and complex brokers rely mostly on
technical details as they are easy to get and understand as compared to fundamental

The methods used for technical analysis are Line charts, Bar
charts, Point and Figure charts, Candle stick charts. The Market indicators are Dow
theory which focuses on primary, secondary and tertiary price movements. Volume and
new Highs and Lows are also used for indications.

In the trend method daily moving average, 200 day average

and 52 weeks high- low. 52 week high is considered resistance and 52 week low is
considered support. If the company moves below support it is dangerous and if above
resistance level means moving towards new highs.
2.1 Rise in investment

Gross domestic capital formation grows 33.8% in 2005-06

A notable feature of the current growth phase is the sharp rise in the rate of investment
in the economy. Investment, in general being a forward looking variable, reflects a high
degree of business optimism.

2.2 Money supply and Inflation

Money supply is increasing due to FII and FDI which is good for the economy and stock
market. Due to increased money supply inflation increases. Starting with a rate of
3.98%, the inflation rate in 2006-07 has been on a general upward trend with
intermittent decreases. However, average inflation in the 52 weeks ending on February
3, 2007 remained at 5% which is not good for stock market as it erodes P/E ratio but
government is taking dew steps to decrease it or at least to stop its growth.

2.3 Positive Industry sector growth

Manufacturing growing double digit since March 2006 every month, except October

The advance estimates of gross domestic product for 2006-07, released by the Central
Statistical Organization places the growth of GDP in the current year at 9.2%. The
ratcheting up of growth observed in recent years is reflected in the Eleventh Five Year
Plan target of an average annual growth of 9% relative to 8% targeted by the Tenth Plan.
Higher GDP has positive effect on stock market.

2.4 Corporate profits

According to the present scenario corporate profits are increasing which results in higher
stock prices.

2.5 Interest rates

Government is keeping watch on interest rates to keep them in control. Recently ICICI
has decreased its rates by 0.5% which is in favor of stock market.

2.6 Effect of Current Budget:

Budget is having positive effect by and large.

Key Positive Changes and their impact

1. Agreeing to industry's longstanding demand, weighted deduction of 150% for pharma
and biotech research and development expenses has been extended by five years to
March 31st, 2012 this will encourage pharma companies to invest more into research.
The major beneficiaries will be those companies for which R&D is of greater
importance like Ranbaxy Lab, Dr. Reddy's Lab, Sun Pharma, Glenmark Pharma, Lupin,
wockhardt and Cadila Healthcare.

2. Clinical trials for new molecules have been exempted from service tax.
This could lead more global pharma companies to outsource clinical
research to India.

3. Import duty on general medical equipment has been reduced to 7.5%, from 12.5%.
This may lead to a sizeable decline in price.

4. The Government will spend Rs 1290 crore towards a nation wide immunization
program. Companies like Panacea Biotec, Wockhardt and Aventis are likely to benefit
from the immunization program.

5. A provision fund of Rs 969 crore dedicated to HIV eradication in India will be created.
The companies who are trying to develop drugs for cure or prevention of HIV like Cipla,
Hetero Drugs and Ranbaxy Lab are likely to benefit from it.

6. Peak custom duty on chemicals has been reduced from 12.5% to 7.5% which would
benefit Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) manufacturing companies.
3 Pharmaceutical Sector
Growth in this sector has been 16.4 % from FY71 to FY00.Its size has increased from Rs 4
billion to Rs 197.4 billion
MNCs viewing India as a base for outsourcing production of bulk drugs and finished
dosages as it is 20 to 25 percent cheaper sourcing drugs from India.

3.1. Overview
India’s healthcare spending is roughly 6 percent of GDP of which almost three fourth is
spent from private resources. By comparison the healthcare spending in the USA is
about 11 percent of GDP, majority of which is from government or third party (insurance)
funds. The expenditure on medicines is roughly 16 percent of all healthcare spending. It
is important to keep in mind that there are several systems of medicine in use both
traditional and modern. In this note we cover the modern sector which largely consists of
allopathic prescription drugs and formulations.

3.2. Structure
The pharma industry in India is highly fragmented both in terms of number of
manufacturers, with over 23,000 licensed units as well as the variety of products. Out of
these 23,000, there are about 250 large units and more than 8,000 small and medium scale
units which form the core of the industry.The industry has a wide range of over 100,000
drugs (which includes vitamins, anti-biotics, antibacterials, cardio-vascular drugs etc.) and
nearly 80 percent of the manufacturers have sales less than INR 1 billion.

3.3. The Regulatory Framework

With the objective of controlling prices of important drugs and making them available at
reasonable rates to the consumer, the Government introduced the Drug Price Control Order
(DPCO) in 1970. It specifies the maximum selling price of bulk drugs and formulations and
the turnover ceiling for exemption from the DPCO. The number of drugs under price control
has reduced. Indian Patent Act (1970), unlike the international norms, this Act provided for
process patents. But it is going to change as India being a member to the World Trade
Organization (WTO) is bound to introduce the patent regime and provide legal protection to
Trade Related Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) by January 1st, 2005.
So USFDA norms of Product patent are more important now.

3.4. Major Segments

Bulk Drugs which are the active ingredients with medicinal properties and are the basic raw
materials for making formulations and Formulations which are specific dosage forms of a
bulk drug or of a combination of different bulk drugs and the final form in which the drugs
are sold i.e. syrups, injections, tablets and capsules.

3.4.1. Bulk Drugs

The field of bulk drugs is broad-based. It covers all products and preparations used in the
production of pharmaceutical formulations. In terms of the inputs used in production of
drugs the industry faces low cost of inputs (in India) at competitive rates helped by the
presence of a well developed chemical industry.

3.4.2. Formulations
The size of the domestic formulations market is around Rs 130 billion and it is growing at
10% per annum. Bulk drugs are formed as India is largely self sufficient in case of
formulations. Some life saving, new generation under-patent formulations continue to be
imported, especially by MNCs, which then market them in India To access the generic
(off-patent) formulation market of developed countries, Indian companies will need tie-
ups with international majors. They have gone in for manufacturing of bulk drugs
required as inputs for their formulations.

3.5. Current Issues

Globally, the pharmaceutical industry is witnessing a number of trends including

increasing emphasis on consolidation, resulting in mergers and alliances, a conscious
shift towards generics (off-patent drugs) and emergence of niche players focusing on
specific areas of the pharmaceutical industry. The reasons for such alliances are many—
increase in geographical coverage, better utilization of sales force, access to new
products and brands, and sharing of resources. Moreover the large Indian companies are
getting their products and production facilities certified by international regulatory
authorities like the US-FDA and the UK-MCA. In the domestic market, companies are
focusing on strengthening the distribution system. Because of the largely generic nature
of the Indian pharmaceutical industry, the focus of domestic companies continues to be
on off-patent drugs. The MNCs are likely to bring in newer drugs into the market as the
new patent laws are implemented. Some of the companies are moving towards over-the-
counter (OTC) segments where margins are better and products are largely outside
4.1 Selection Criteria
Considering the highest sales Ranbaxy Laboratories has been selected
for analysis and has been the company to be benefited due to budget
because of weighted deduction of 150% for pharma and biotech research and
development expenses has been extended by five years to March 31st, 2012, decrease
in import duty and provision of fund for eradication of HIV and AIDS in which Ranbaxy is

4.2 SWOT Analysis

4.2.1. Strengths
 Dominant player in pharmaceutical sector.

 Geographic diversification reduces risk of slowdown in a particular content. In

FY06 out of total revenue 21% from India, 31.3% from North America, 32.3%
from Europe(with Russia and Ukraine) & 15.4% from rest of the world. Sale
during the year 2006 was US $1.3 bn (Rs 6000 crore) and Profit of US $ 114
mn(Rs 500 crore)

 Has undergone nine mergers and acquisitions of US$450 mn.

 It expanded its presence in Rome & South Africa

 Undergoes continuous Research & Development & develops new products

 A robust product flow into our key markets and lowered R&D costs by 20% over
last year

 Working towards new alliances with big pharma companies to expand and
leverage their New Drug Discovery Research (NDDR) program. To this effect, they
entered into a new multiyear R&D agreement with GSK, which provides Ranbaxy
expanded drug-development responsibilities and the prospects of significant
financial returns, in terms of milestones and royalties, going forward

 Leadership in Novel Drug Delivery System (NDDS) products, which offer value-
added differentiation over conventional products. Key brands include Cifran OD
(Ciprofloxacin), Zanocin OD (Ofloxacin) & Sporidex AF (Cephalexin)

 Strong brand building capabilities, reflected in the fact that 20 brands feature in
the “Top-300 brands of the Industry” list. The leading 5 brands are Sporidex
(Cephalexin), Cifran (Ciprofloxacin), Mox (Amoxycillin), Zanocin (Ofloxacin) &
Volini (Diclofenac)
4.2.2. Weakness

 Has to incur high costs in training the employees as the development of products
is very technical.

 It has done many mergers and acquisitions so it would be a challenge for them to
adjust in different country.

 As its main field is research and development the success and other predictions
becomes very difficult.

4.2.3. Opportunities

 Moving towards well balanced mix from developed and emerging market and will
be well positioned to maximize and leverage their varied growth potential .In 2006
from Developed market 42.3% Emerging
 49.1%and others 8.6%

 A number of special projects in high potential segments and therapies are

underway and are expected to be the key growth driver in future.

 The oncology therapy crossed the sales of US $ 30 bn in world sales is expected to

become dominant sector in pharmaceutical market. By 2010.Ranbaxy has recently
initiated itself into the segment by partnership with Zenotech in India and is
actively pursuing its plan for product filing.

 Throgh this they are also commited to another high growth segment of Bio-

 The biotech market stands at US $ 50-60 bn and is expected to cross US $ 100 bn

by 2010.

 They are ready to launch their specialty injections like Penum, Limusis ,etc in the
market with the potential sales of US $ 3 bn.

4.2.4. Threats

 Going forward the environment would become more complex an d therefore

recruiting ,retaining and nurturing would become even more challenging.

 It has a threat of decreasing margins and tougher competition in European market.

 Changing policies and norms may be a problem for the company or market as a

 The global generics business is becoming more competitive with the entry of newer
players from the emerging economies. On the other hand, the government induced
changes in select markets and the ongoing consolidation in the industry is bringing
forth new challenges in the marketplace

 The generic segment has inherent risks of patent litigations, product liability, increasing
regulations and compliance related issues, particularly in the developed markets

4.3. Research considerations

 As a part of their social responsibility they are engaged in developing HIV/AIDS

new generation drugs and have developed and file the first step of medicine for
pediatric use.
 Their anti malarial drug development is also doing well in phase II clinical trials.

 They are also involved in research of Generic (off patent) drugs.

 Biological formulations such as Verorab (Rabies Vaccine) and Vaxigrip (Flu

Vaccine), which require competencies to propagate the newer concepts in the
market place. These products are being in-licensed or taken on Co-promotion from
Sanofi Pastuer.

 Dry Power & Metered Dose Inhalers have been launched in the Respiratory
segment. All Metered Dose Inhalers are HFA based formulations, environment
friendly inhalers. It is for the first time in India, that a company has launched its
entire HFA propellant based MDI range. The world’s first novel product,
Osovair (Formoterol + Ciclesonide) inhalation capsules has been introduced in the
Indian market.
 Anti-diabetic franchise has been further consolidated with launch of
Insucare (Insulin) with an innovative delivery mechanism - “Controlled Insulin
Logistics” This ensures that the cold chain, vital for product efficacy, is maintained

4.4. Risk Involved

4.4.1 Investment Risk

All companies face some kind of risk regardless of their size and industry. The
companies always face variation in general economic activities.

4.4.2 Business Risk

Ranbaxy faces business risk such as failure of any product in R&D, not getting
approval from USFDA, etc.

4.4.3 Financial Risk

Larger portion of Ranbaxy’s market is in Europe and USA (63.6 %) where

4.9. Therapy Focus

Ranbaxy's diverse product basket of over 5,000 SKUs available in over 125 countries
worldwide, encompasses a wide therapeutic mix covering a majority of the chronic and
acute segments. Healthcare trends project that the chronic treatment segments will
outpace the acute treatment segments, primarily driven by a growing aging population
and dominance of lifestyle diseases. Its robust performance in Cardiovasculars, Central
Nervous System, Respiratory, Dermatology, Orthopedics, Nutritionals and Urology
segments, clearly indicates that the Company has strengthened its presence in the fast-
growing chronic and lifestyle disease segments. Ranbaxy's top 20 products, ranging from
Anti-infectives to Dermatologicals, account for revenues of over US $ 600 Mn.

The Company has also undertaken significant investments to grow organically in key
areas like 'Penems' and 'Limuses' providing unique competitive advantages. Licensing
agreements and an alliance model have been used successfully to gain a strong foothold
into new therapies like Oncology and Bio-similars, which are poised to grow significantly
in the future.
The progress in some of the key segments during the year, high lights our endeavor
towards augmenting its therapeutic presence across multiple markets.

4.9.1. Anti-infectives

The Anti-infectives (AI) segment remained the leading therapeutic segment for the
Company, contributing up to 44% of global dosage form sales, which also reflects an
uptrend on the chronic segment contribution to the overall sales during the year. This
segment is expected to offer lucrative opportunities, resulting from patent expiries of
several leading global products. Ranbaxy is well positioned to capitalize on these
opportunities. During 2006, the Faronem (Faropenem) launch in India met with good
success, with the product entering the top 30 new products of the industry.

4.9.2. Cardiovasculars

The Cardiovasculars segment posted a healthy growth of 60%. This performance was
propelled by the US launch of Simvastatin, with its 80 mg strength garnering over 50%
market share in USA, during the 180-days exclusivity period. The Company also
launched the first generic Atorvastatin, under the brand name Storvas, in Malaysia.

with a share in excess of 50%. The incidence of Asthma is increasing worldwide, and
COPD mortality is expected to increase dramatically. The company registered a healthy
double digit growth of 29% in the segment. The company is introduced numerous new
products, with many of them featuring as ‘first time’ launches in Indian pharmaceutical
market. The company launches HFA (Hydro Fluoro Alkane : the propellant) based
pressurized metered dose inhaler, being strongly recommended worldwide by regulatory
agencies to address growing concern regarding CFC (chloro Fluoro Carbons) based
inhalers. The Company is well positioned to provide respiratory products in both
formulations - 'Dry Powder Inhalers’ and ‘Metered Dose Inhalers’, using the most
advanced formlations.

4.9.4. Central Nervous System (CNS)

The population with CNS disorders worldwide is rising steadily, driven by an aging
population, improved diagnostic techniques, increased physician and patient awareness,
and a gradual shift away from the social stigma traditionally attached to many
psychiatric conditions. The CNS therapeutic segment emerged as the second-fastest
growing segment for the Company, recording a growth of 36%. The Company entered
into strategic licensing and supply agreements for Canada and US, which helped to
bolster its performance in this segment.
4.9.5. Gastrointestinals

The 'Proton Pump Inhibitors' represent the largest sub class within the gastrointestinal
segment, with a share in excess of 80%, and are currently driving the global
gastrointestinal segment. The next decade will witness patent expiries of key products
from the 'Proton Pump Inhibitors' sub-class, representing attractive opportunities for the
Company. The Company registered a healthy growth rate of 24% in the gastrointestinals

4.9.6. Musculoskeletal

The demand for prescription pain management products continues to grow, due to
favorable demographics, increasing incidence of chronic pain conditions, and increasing
physician recognition of the need to treat patients' pain. The Rheumatology and
Musculoskeletal drugs category for the Company, registered a healthy growth of 19%.

4.9.7. Anti- retrovirals

comprising different strengths of Efavirenz and Stavudine, taking the Company's total
pre-qualification list to 12 ARVs.

The Company also received approval to manufacture and market Triviro-LNS kid and
Triviro-LNS kid DS, both triple ARV dispersible tablets for children, in India. The Company
also became the 'First to File' such a pediatric product with WHO, for pre-qualification.

4.9.8. Others

Oncology sales are expected to witness the highest growth rate in the next decade, and
the main reasons for this include the aging population, trends in prevalence of smoking
and an increase in unhealthy lifestyles. This presents a significant opportunity across the
entire cancer market. This includes generic products also, as global Oncology sales are
expected to rise in line with increasing incidence of the disease. Ranbaxy has entered
into an agreement with Zenotech Laboratories Limited in India, for 11 Oncology products
to be marketed as generic formulations in the US and Canada under the Ranbaxy label.
The Company has thus undertaken efforts to enter fast-growing segments and develop a
competitive advantage.

On another occason, Ranbaxy responded quickly to the growing concerns of the Avian
Flu virus spread, by offering to supply Oseltamivir within a short period of time. During
the year, the Company fulfilled the need of the Malaysian government, by manufacturing
and supplying the generic Oseltamavir under the brand name Fluhalt in Malaysia, thus
becoming the first company to receive approvals to market the generic Oseltamavir in
the country.

expanding footprint in EU. With the front end infrastructure in place, the Company is well
geared to capitalize on the growing opportunities in the market.

 The outlook on the Indian Pharma market continues to be positive, with volume
consumption driving the market (only 32% of Indians as of now use allopathy medicines and
drug consumption at US $ 7 per head is one of lowest in the world). With India becoming a
signatory to the WTO and introduction of the Patent Product regime, the Indian market will
be an attractive option for introduction of research-based products. Ranbaxy, the leading
pharmaceutical company in India, is well set to become a partner of choice in the Indian
