Here is what brokerages have to say about the stock and company after the March earnings:
Citi | Rating: Buy | Target: Rs 4,000
The Q4 results were ahead of estimates. Improving mix & cost reduction initiatives appear to be yielding results. The 2% cuts in volume estimates over FY22-23 offsets much better realisations. Citi raised EBITDA estimate by 1% & 2% in earnings estimates.
Goldman Sachs | Rating: Neutral | Target: Rs 3,100
The Q4 was ahead of expectations, led by surprise revenue beat, possibly by spares. The higher/lower-than-expected growth for entry-level motorcycles is a key risk. The rural demand will also be in focus.
