"Retaining our forward estimates, we now value Tata Motors at a revised target price of Rs 450 on SOTP basis (15x, 3.3x FY23E EV/EBITDA on India, JLR businesses, respectively). We revise upwards our target multiples for India business amid continued outperformance at Tata Motors India and is in line with its peers," the brokerage said.

"All of the company's three businesses are on the path to recovery. While the Indian commercial vehicle business would see cyclical recovery, the passenger vehicle business is undergoing structural recovery," it said.
"JLR is also witnessing a cyclical recovery, supported by a favourable product mix, however, supply-side issues would defer the recovery process. While there would be no near-term catalysts from the JLR business, the India business (around 50 percent SOTP) would see continued recovery. Maintain buy, with a target price of Rs 460 (Sep'23E SOTP-based)," the brokerage said.
