HDFC Securities' research report on Star Cement
During 4QFY20, good demand in east/NE drove 4% vol growth despite Covid lockdown. Weak pricing however led to profit decline. Even in FY20, weak pricing pulled down profits despite higher utilisation, debt reduction and higher treasury gains. Healthy OCF topped large capex and investor pay-outs (buyback/dividends) and net cash balance doubled YoY.
We maintain BUY on Star Cement with a TP of Rs 115. We continue to like Star for its leadership positioning in the lucrative NE region, which drives its industry leading op margin and healthy return ratios.
