Motilal Oswal on Bharti Airtel: Bharti’s superior execution quality is reflected in its strong performance in the last 8-10 quarters; 25% YoY growth in consolidated EBITDA, despite no tariff hikes; and consistent subscriber and revenue market share gains. We see potential for a re-rating in both the India and Africa businesses on the back of steady earnings growth. We value Bharti on a Sep’22E basis, assigning an EV/EBITDA of 11x/5x to the India Mobile/Africa business, arriving at an SoTP based target of Rs 860. Our estimates do not factor in any upside from a tariff hike or steep market share gains from VIL’s financial stress. We maintain our buy rating.

Indian rupee opened 11 paise lower at 74.34 per dollar on against Thursday close of 74.23.
Despite a surging US dollar, rupee was seen some resilience on account of consistent IPO inflows and slide in crude oil prices. However, with domestic Indian equities declining by nearly 2% added some nervousness, as FII was seen back on a selling spree, said Amit Pabari, MD at CR Forex Advisors.
“Also once inflows get standstill and Fed’s tapering sword hanging, a depreciation pressure resides on rupee and can take it towards the first target of 74.75-75.00 levels and next target of 75.50 levels in the upcoming time,” he added.
