Britannia Industries share price added more than 2 percent in the early trade on August 2 even after the home-grown food major reported a 29 percent decline in consolidated net profit at Rs 387 crore for the quarter ended June 30. The company had posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 543 crore for the April-June period of the previous fiscal.

Here is what brokerages have to say about the stock and the company post the June quarter earnings:

Macquarie | Rating: Neutral | Target: Rs 3,600

The research house maintained neutral call as the company intends to hike prices to offset cost pressures. However, details of its strategy to offset the input cost pressures were awaited. The brokerage was looking to gain clarity on competitive situation on ground.

Close

Citi | Rating: Buy | Target: Rs 3,975

The broking house has kept “buy” call on the stock as the company posted a good operational beat on very low expectations. The EBITDA was ahead of Citi’s/consensus forecasts and room for relative valuation gap to be bridged.

CLSA | Rating: Underperform | Target: Rs 3,625

CLSA has maintained “underperform” rating as the margin pressure was along expected lines, while better topline aided overall delivery.

It estimated the company to register low single-digit volume growth for the quarter and see limited pricing to help the company to gain share.
