Amarjeet Maurya - AVP - Mid Caps at Angel Broking gave a neutral rating to the issue.

"In terms of valuations, the pre-issue P/E works out to 73x FY2020 earnings (at the upper end of the issue price band), which is high considering CAL's historical two year CAGR top-line & bottom-line growth. Further, the company's return ratios are also low compared to its other peers. Thus, we recommend NEUTRAL rating on the issue," he said.

Geojit in a note gave a subscribe call to the issue. "At   the   upper   price   band   of   Rs 1,490,   CAL   is   available   at   a   PE   of   46.6x (annualized  basis  on  FY21E  EPS  of  31.9)  which  is  aggressively  priced. GoI's 'Make  in  India' initiative and  other  regulatory  and  policy  supports with well established  relationships  with  domestic  and  global  OEMs are  positive  for  the company. We  assign  a  Subscribe  rating,  with  a  long  term  perspective, on  the back of healthy growth in the OEM segment  due to lower base and reduction in debt," the brokerage said.
