Investment Rationale
Although the market share, at the aggregate level, stabilized in Q4, the slide in the share of entry-level products continued in both WMs and Refs. A complete cessation of market share losses and a recovery in demand at the industry level are essential for reversing the down-cycle in earnings. First-time buyers and demand from Tier-II & III cities, as well as semi-urban areas, are expected to support volume recovery in semi-automatic WMs and direct-cool Refs. For Whirlpool, a recovery in demand for entry-level products is key to improving GMs. Furthermore, continued commodity inflation and competitive intensity remain the main factors affecting the low margin profile. The channel checks continue to show that competitive intensity remains high and is unlikely to subside anytime soon. And, this could weigh on WHIRL’s performance and the pace of recovery in both market share and profitability. Before the brokerage gets constructive on the stock, it expects a reversal of the downward trend in earnings and a sustained recovery in market share. Downside/upside risks: macro slowdown; sustained commodity inflation and INR volatility; inability to reverse the margin contraction; and faster-than-expected market share recovery
