Valuation and View
We continue to remain bullish on the long-term growth prospects of MSIL, given its leadership position coupled with a strong product pipeline in the next few years. We expect MSIL’s revenue to grow at ~16% CAGR in FY14-16E on demand recovery and new launches, which is expected to boost volumes. Further, the rationalisation of diesel-petrol price gap would provide a fillip to the company’s petrol-dominated product portfolio. A strong product brand with an extensive distribution network places the company ahead of its peers.
At a current market price of Rs.3,650.6, the stock trades at P/E of 25.0x FY16E. We recommend ‘BUY’ with a target price of Rs.4,229, which implies potential upside of ~15.8% to the CMP from a long term perspective.
