Valuation and view
With strong brand recall, superior pricing power and distribution reach, we believe Pidilite is a strong play in the recovery in discretionary spending. Further, subdued crude and VAM prices will be margin accretive going ahead. We expect revenue and PAT to grow at a CAGR of 11% and 30% over FY15-FY17E. We initiate coverage on the stock with a BUY rating with a target price of Rs. 646 (FY17E P/E of 38x), implies a potential upside of 13% for the coming 12 months.
