ICICI Securities has maintained an 'add' call for the stock.
"Listening to Page's management was [kind of] refreshing -- no major concern of [consumer] slowdown, managing inflation well [despite being high], addressing a large opportunity, etc. That's the good part of select consumer discretionary names [lower impact of top-down issues]. Importantly, its execution on new avenues has been impressive. We increase our earnings estimate by 3 per cent for FY24E; modelling revenue/EBITDA/PAT CAGR of 18/24/26 per cent over FY22-24E. Maintain ADD with a DCF-based unchanged target price of Rs 46,000. Key downside risks are underperformance of men's innerwear and sharper-than-expected RM inflation," said the brokerage.
YES Securities has given an add call with a target price of Rs 46,376, a 11 per cent upside to the current market price of Rs 41,665.
It said the firm has aggressive network expansion plans and its investments are delivering solid results.
"The firm delivered another strong quarter with continued momentum on volume growth, benefit of sharp price hikes taken in 1Q and 3Q and positive operating leverage driving sharp margin expansion. Revenue up 26.2 per cent (volumes up 8.7 per cent) YoY to Rs 1110 crore on 63 per cent growth in 4QFY21 implying 22 per cent 3-yr revenue CAGR and market share gains. We maintain ADD rating with revised target price of Rs 46,376 as expensive valuations limit the upside potential from current levels, " the brokerage said.
