Ashok Leyland has reported a 50 per cent drop in domestic M&HCV sales during the month of October 2019 to 4,565 units as against 9,062 units, a year ago.
The biggest drop was in trucks, whose sales declined by 59 per cent to 3,335 units in October from 8,124 units in the same month a year ago. Bus sales in October, on the other hand, were up 31 per cent to 1,230 units, from 938 units the previous year.
Ashok Leyland (AL) has corrected significantly (price erosion of more than 60% from its highs of `167). We believe its CMP has priced in most of the negative factors (liquidity issues due to the NBFC crisis, one of the worst demand slowdowns, axle load norms) that led to the decline. We believe having priced in most of the negative factors, the sequential increase in vehicle sales due to discounts, festive season buying and pre-BS6 buying would start reflecting in prices as month-on-month demand picks up.
Ashok Leyland reported a 57 per cent drop in domestic vehicle sales in September to 7,851 units from 18,078 units in the year-ago period.
