However, Indigo shares have divided experts down the middle. So far, the stock is seen to rise 16% going forward.
Sameer Kalra, Equity Research Analyst & Founder Target Investing on Tuesday’s stock performance said, “Q4FY19 results were better than estimated given the higher operational efficiency. Increase in international revenue to 13.6% of total revenue and addition of 4 aircraft during quarter helped beat the estimates. Though we are medium and long term neutral on the company. We would be positive for intraday trade.”
Kalra’s investment call on Indigo is - Stop Loss 1610/1560 & Target 1710/1750.
Garima Mishra, analysts at Kotak Institutional Equities said, "Indigo reported stronger-than-expected 4QFY19 earnings driven by higher yields. 9% yoy yield increase was driven by Jet’s closure as well as internal productivity measures. We note that capacity addition by competitors has picked up steam, and may likely pressure yields 2QFY20 onwards. We tweak our FY2020E EPS as we factor in lower costs on account of A321neo aircraft, driving a revised fair value of Rs1,575."
Mishra adds, "We believe the positive boost to yields may last for a shorter duration than earlier expected on account of steep capacity addition by peers (Spicejet, Vistara). We are particularly wary of yields coming off in the profitable metro routes. Our estimates already bake in a fair amount of optimism – our spread assumptions (RASK-CASK) are Rs0.21-0.27 over FY2020-21, sharply higher than the Rs0.11 reported in 4QFY19."
On the other hand, Gagan Dixit and Rachael Alva analysts at Elara Capital said, "Q4FY19 fuel CASK was at INR 1.3 vs our estimates of INR 1.3, flat YoY and down 9% QoQ, on a 15% QoQ reduction in ATF price by OMC and fuel-efficient A320 & A321Neos that comprise 34% of total fleet."
The duo added, "We reduce our EPS for FY20E by 8% and FY21E by 1% on lower FY20 capacity growth at 30% from 45% as per guidance."
Management targets FY20 capacity addition of 30% or 64 aircraft fleet wherein 50% of new capacity will be used for global routes, implying just ~35 new aircrafts are available for growth of domestic operations.
"We change our rating to Accumulate from Buy with a revised TP of INR 1,927 from INR 1,945 as the stock has run up by 49% in three months and we lower our FY20E EPS, Our new TP is based on 7.5x (unchanged) FY21E EV/EBITDA, in line with global LCC peers," said analysts at Elara.
