In Paytm’s case, JP Morgan believes the company can deliver nearly 60 percent revenue growth and nearly 10-fold expansion in contributing profit. This gives Paytm a one-of-a-kind “fintech horizontal” ability to drive monetization. JP Morgan said Paytm is unlikely to be replicated by competitors that are mostly vertically focused. The foreign brokerage expects Paytm to beat the estimates for FY13 and FY24 unanimously.
Tata Motors, on the other hand, attracted a sell call from CLSA as foreign brokerages believe that the domestic private vehicle segment is overvalued and subsidiary JLR is lagging behind in electrification.
The brokerage has a target price of Rs 408 on the stock, which includes Rs 150 for its Commercial Vehicle business and Rs 151 for JLR. However, the brokerage expects JLR’s volumes and profitability to recover with easing of supply conditions for the chips.
Meanwhile, Citi has maintained a buy rating on Marico with a target of Rs 640 post the company’s Q3 update.
