Motilal Oswal in a report said the firm remains their top large cap pick in the sector. "The company has grown its market share further due to high clinker availability in 4QFY21. We expect market share gains to continue, aided by the ongoing 20mtpa expansion program, which should drive 11% volume CAGR over FY21-24E.
While we expect industry volumes to decline by 25-30% in the near term due to COVID-related lockdowns, the same should be partly compensated by improved margins as prices have been strong. We value Ultratech Cement at 16x FY23E EV/EBITDA to arrive at a target price of Rs 8,050. Reiterate Buy," the brokerage added.
