stocks to buy: 3 auto stocks that could prove to be winners going forward


Girish Pai, Head of Research, Nirmal Bang Institutional Equities, says the brokerage is neutral to a little underweight on auto as a sector because they are not very bullish on Tata Motors or Maruti.

What are you making of this big revival in autos?
Auto has underperformed for various reasons. Yes, there is value but there is only selective value to use of broad brush there. The impact of the second wave, supply chain issues, the non-availability of semiconductors — all have been the key challenging areas for most of the companies.

On the passenger vehicle (PV) side, demand is reasonably strong. The question is in terms of delivering to the demand which is a bit of a challenge. We are selective within the auto space and I would probably pick M&M and

A refocus on SUVs, a better capital allocation model would help M&M. As for tractors, probably the biggest value driver, while the peak from a growth standpoint is probably over, the declines are not as dramatic. So broadly, these are the two parts of the market we are very positive on.

On Tata Motors, we are fairly negative on the JLR side though on the domestic front, Tata Motors is doing a fairly good job on both the CV as well as on the PV side.

Which companies could be the bigger winners in the auto pack going forward?
M&M among the largecaps, Ashok Leyland among the midcaps would be the two auto stocks we would back at this point in time. Within the two-wheeler space, we like

. So those are the three stocks we would back at this point in time. We remain neutral to a little underweight on auto as a sector because we are not very bullish on Tata Motors or Maruti.
