However, Nangra also added, “to protect a further de-rating the company has to exhibit all the characteristics of a leading player, which implies that its R&D efforts have to fructify, which should happen in next 4-5 years). In addition, company’s strong balance sheet and high ROE of business, enables higher dividend payout and should restrict the underperformance from here on, even for long-term buyers. Thus, we recommend a HOLD.”
