Zomato | The share was down 15 percent last week. Recent reports suggest Fed rolling back liquidity amid higher inflation and indicating multiple interest rate hikes this year, have weakened the case for investment in richly priced technology stocks with no near-term visibility on profitability. "Superior growth potential aside, we sniff potential regulations considering the market power and control exercised by online delivery apps at large on gig workers. The shape and form of such regulations are not yet clear, but look quite probable over a medium-to-long-term", said Edelweiss Research in its November report. "To be sure, markets love Zomato’s delivery story, but in the first few months since listing, its quality of disclosures has been sub-par. If this continues, valuations could take a knock. And also with food delivery apps demonstrating monopolistic nature, Zomato must decisively outdo Swiggy, a well-funded large player chasing it fast in its playfield", the brokerage added.
