Technical Analysis on SAIL
Chandan Taparia, Derivative & Technical Analyst, Motilal Oswal Financial Services says that SAIL should be bought with a stop loss of Rs 86 and target of Rs 94. Stock has crossed its hurdle on a weekly scale and has been forming higher highs - higher lows in the daily frame. 95% rollover was seen from the previous series with call unwinding at all immediate strikes.
Higher realization and volume growth to drive earnings:
Given a strong steel cycle, Motilal Oswal expects realization to remain high in the medium term, which, coupled with an inefficient cost structure (higher conversion cost), should provide disproportionate margin gains to SAIL. Every Rs 1,000/t of higher steel price improves SAIL’s FY22E EBITDA by 11%. Supported by under-utilized capacities, volume growth is expected to be strong at 9% CAGR over FY21-23E. There is also a likelihood of product mix improvement (higher finished steel sales).
