Comments by Motilal Oswal

About the stock potential and share price target Motilal Oswal said, ‘ We maintain our earnings estimate as Q4FY22 is a seasonally strong quarter and should benefit from pre-buying. OEL is a strong operating leverage story, with margin expansion accompanied by an improving balance sheet. while two-year revenue CAGR stood at 17% vs 27% for HAVL, earnings CAGR is better at 41% vs 24% for HAVL. We forecast a revenue/EBITDA/PAT CAGR of 14%/22%/27% over FY22-24E. We value OEL at 45x FY24E EPS, with a target price of Rs. 500. At the CMP, the stock trades at an FY23E/Fy24E P/E of 38x/32x. Our longer-term thesis indicates a reduction in the margin differential between OEL and leading FMCG peers. On a FY24E P/E basis, OEL is trading at a discount of 34%/5% vs HAVL/CROMPTON, while its FY22-24E EPS CAGR of 27% is 2x of 14% each for HAVL/CROMPTON. On an EV/EBITDA basis, the discount stands at 44%/28%. We maintain our buying rating. Orient electric is our top pick in the consumer electrical space.
