Corporate Tax Cut : More fireworks Expected

On Friday (20Sep2019) our finance minister cut the Corporate taxes from 35%  to 25.2%(Effective). It was a long pending demand form industry. After that we witnessed a huge up move in stock prices and indices. Because this cut in tax will impact positively on earning of a company. The approximate change in EPS would be 15%. If the PE of remains same then the valuation is also expected to apricate by 15%.

Suppose if a share with PE multiple 20 has Earnings Per Share (Before Tax): 100Rs.
Case 1: Before Tax cut
Corporate tax : 35%
Earnings Per Share (After Tax): 65 Rs.
Expect valuation in this case: 65*20=1300 Rs.

Case 2: After Tax cut
Corporate tax: 25.2%
Earnings Per Share (After Tax): 74.8 Rs.
Expect valuation in this case: 74.8*20=1496 Rs.

Above calculation explains the reason behind the movement in prices across the board. Historically we can say that is EPS increases then PE also gets improved. So more upside expected. Indices calculation is not so simple but it will have positive impact on EPS and Valuation. Hold tight your equity portfolio. Let them re-rate …..

Hope this will help....

National Pension Scheme India is a voluntary and long-term investment plan for retirement under the purview of the Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority (PFRDA) and Central Government. This pension program is open to employees from the public, private and even the unorganized sectors with the exception of those from the armed forces. You can claim any additional up to Rs 50,000 under section 80CCD(1B) as NPS tax benefit. The scheme, therefore, allows a tax deduction of up to Rs 2 lakh in total. You cannot withdraw the entire corpus of the NPS scheme after your retirement. You are required to keep aside at least 40% of the corpus to receive a regular pension from a PFRDA-registered insurance firm.  The remaining 60% is tax-free.
