Despite a relatively higher base for 3QFY21, outlook for the quarter remains positive due to (a) bunching up of postponed wedding demand, in addition to traditionally strong demand for wedding jewellery in 3Q, and (b) encouraging festive demand, which has already seen positive growth in the first 10 days of the festive season.

While FY22E multiples at 55x may appear expensive, it is primarily due to temporary impact of the pandemic in FY21, from which the rebound would be sharp over the next couple of years. Maintain Buy with target price of Rs 1,400 (55x Sep'22 EPS).
