L&T (Rs 1,834): Revenue growth to be driven by existing order backlog. Revenue growth is likely to remain healthy as execution cycle is decreasing, margins to remain stable at 11.5-11.7%. Adjusted for subsidiaries at book value, L&T is trading at 12.5x FY13 (discount of 10% to broader market) making it very attractive

Maruti Suzuki (Rs 1,600): MSIL's sales volumes should grow 19% to 1.32 million in FY13 led by higher diesel engine availability, normalisation of production and growth from new models and segments. We expect MSIL's realisations to increase 5% in FY13E, as diesel variants and premium compact cars are likely to grow faster.

<b>Dr Reddy's (Rs 2,080):</b> DRL expects to achieve its revenue guidance of $2.7 billion revenue (30% growth) and 25% RoCE for FY13 without any major inorganic initiatives. The US market will be a key contributor led by its pipeline of 80 ANDAs and contribution from FTF/low-competition opportunities

<b>Torrent Power (Rs 285):</b> Torrent currently trades at a price/book discount of about 33% vs peers. Given Torrent's superior free cash flow yield (FY13E is 11%), higher FY13 RoE (13.3% vs 11.8% for peers) and improving visibility on the project pipeline, we believe it deserves to trade at a premium versus peers.

<b>Ashok Leyland (Rs 33):</b> We expect an improvement in the economy and hence corporate spending going forward. This would mean a pick-up in the M&HCV segment volumes from H2'FY13. Ashok Leyland, with its high operating leverage and attractive valuations, remains the best play.
