10 best stocks to buy in 2023
“The new owners might act quickly to seize this low-hanging fruit. The new owners may also be able to further realize the synergies between Ambuja and ACC. Despite its scale, ACC receives a valuation in EV/T that is substantially lower than that of rivals with comparable sizes. We believe that this gap could be gradually closed,” the note said.
BFL has received a 178 crore rupee order from the Defense Ministry to produce Kalyani M4 vehicles and anticipates receiving additional orders in the future.

5.Larsen and Toubro:
Over the next two to three years, L&T wants to cut its debt by 5000 crores. The business anticipates a further increase in the bid-to-award ratio to 55%+ in H2FY23, which will stimulate order inflows according to HDFC Securities.
The business anticipates receiving new orders during FY23 and expects Capex of between Rs100 and Rs120 crores. According to the brokerage, this gives excellent momentum for revenue visibility over time.
7.Power Fin Corporation:
“PFC’s large dividend seems sustainable because it has lent to relatively risk-free public sector firms and its ability to distribute dividends remains solid even in the event that some of its private sector loans does not perform. We believe that the company’s cheap valuations and high dividend yield give investors a margin of safety.
“To lower the energy usage in urea production, a gas turbine project and an upgrade to the ammonia plant at Trombay have been implemented. The projects, which will cost 500 Cr, should pay for themselves in two to three years.”
9.State Bank of India:
“The subsidiaries are operating very successfully and significantly enhancing the bank’s value. SBI will also be able to leverage several growth opportunities while hedging against market downturns in particular segments. A margin of safety is also provided by its subsidiary value. We anticipate that the valuation gap between SBI and its private bank competitors could decrease significantly.”
10.According to Zensar Tech,
“The business indicated margins have bottomed out and are projected to improve going forward, driven by levers of enhanced service mix, staff pyramid optimization, rationalization of SG&A and hiring expenses, and improved utilization.”
