The overall two-wheeler and three-wheeler sales, including exports registered 6.58 lakh units in the quarter ended June 2021, against 2.67 lakh units year-on-year, TVS Motors said in exchange filing.
In this regard, Jefferies maintains its positive stance on TVS Motor with company turning aggressive on EVs (electric vehicles). The brokerage says, margins would expand sequentially as exports are holding up well and sets the price target of Rs 800 per share.
While Citi has a Sell rating on TVS Motor and cuts the price target to Rs 530 per share, on the back of higher capital costs, which resulted in a PAT miss. However, the company’s pricing and gross margin trends have been commendable.
The stock at around 11:55 am, was trading at almost 6 per cent higher, near day’s high level, to Rs 595 per share on the BSE, as against 0.18 per cent rise in the S&P BSE Sensex. The stock on May 27, 2021, had touched its 52-week high of Rs 665.7 per share.
Impacted by the covid second wave in Q1, the company said, “With the gradual opening of markets, the company is optimistic about the domestic and international demand coming back to normalcy.” It incurred Rs 30 crore towards COVID-19 related expenses as an exceptional item.
