Good rains, rural demand may keep Hero in top gear

Volume outperformance in the motorcycle segment in the June quarter and the twowheeler’s status as a preferred vehicle to play the rural consumption theme are likely to hold investor interest in Hero MotoCorp, India’s largest motorcycle maker. The stock is trading at close to its long-term average, which offers comfort at a time when stocks with earnings visibility are trading at distended valuations. In the June quarter, Hero’s motorcycle volume grew 7 per cent, compared with 3 per cent for the market. At a time when there was demand disruption due to the GST transition, Hero MotoCorp’s strategy of pushing wholesale numbers by dispatching vehicles to dealerships worked well and aided in both market share gain and margins. The company had maintained its average inventory level of 5-6 weeks in May-June. Hero MotoCorp was able to consolidate its market share in its core economy and executive segment bikes. Its share in the economy and executive segments rose 8 and 3 percentage points, respectively, in the past year to 59.8 per cent and 72.4 per cent. This shows the strength of Hero’s brand in the low-engine segment. The company is likely to continue outperforming the motorcycle market with its new launches, bringing in additional volumes over the next few quarters, and help from an expected improvement in the rural economy.
