While Pratim Roy, analysts at Stewart Mackertich said, “We expect the company to achieve 22% CAGR in jewellery business over the next three years led by gold exchange, increasing contribution from wedding collection and the margin support through operating leverage. Their eyewear, fragrance, & saree business also looks promising in near term. Factoring the above rationale we are assigning a P/E of 49x on the FY21 revised EPS to upgrade our price target from INR1065 to INR1140.”
Alok Shah and Abneesh Roy, analysts at Edelweiss Securities said, “We envisage Titan to extend its growth run led by market share gains, rising share of studded jewellery, new launches and retail expansion. Margin expansion levers such as higher share of studded (jewellery), in-house frame manufacturing (eyewear), cost optimisation and operating leverage are in place. Rolling forward (June 2020), we assign 55x PE multiple (earlier 50x) to arrive at revised TP of INR1,182 (earlier, INR990). We maintain ‘BUY/SO’. At CMP, the stock is trading at 48.9x FY20E EPS.”
Richard Liu, Vicky Punjabi and Nikita Maheshwari analysts at JM Financial said, “ We expect the stock to stay strong on the back of this result; confidence remains high as far as the Jewellery segment goes (targeting to be 2.5x over FY18-23E) and even Watches’ trajectory have now stabilised at a higher level. We maintain BUY with a revised target-price of INR1,155 (45x Mar’21 EPS).”
Ashit Desai and Preethkar R analysts at Emkay said, “Profitability across the divisions was mixed with margins in watches being impacted by high ad spends. Management continues to maintain a 15% EBIT margin target for the division. Jewelry margin expansion was impressive, but was partly supported by inventory gain and lower ad spends. The focus remains on growth, and share gains can drive further margin expansion through operating leverage.”
Therefore, analysts at Emkay added, “Given the 20%+ earnings CAGR, valuations of 48x FY20E EPS are attractive relative to peers. We remain positive and maintain our Accumulate rating, with a revised TP of Rs1,080, valuing it at 45x Dec-20E EPS.”
Hence, a long list of reasons are available for investing in Titan.
