Edelweiss' research report on Tata Steel
We attended Tata Steel’s (TATA) analyst day at Jamshedpur and Kalinganagar and got better clarity on the company’s bright prospects that bolstered our positive view on the stock. Key takeaways: 1) Domestic capacity to double to ~26mt by FY22; 2) Kalinganagar operations (KPO) to be mainstay of future growth and higher margins; and 3) Retail and new initiatives/solutions expected to improve last mile connectivity and boost profitability by decommoditising offerings.
