Valuation & Outlook
We reiterate our bullish stance on VST given the sweet spot of robust demand prospects, import restrictions in power tiller segment and steady improvement in margin profile. VST also possesses a healthy balance sheet (cash rich) with history of consistent positive CFO generation. With volume uptick (13% CAGR over FY20P-22E) and recovery of margin profile, earnings are expected to witness smart recovery at VST. Consequently, we retain our BUY rating on VST and value it at Rs. 1,980 i.e. 22x FY22E EPS of Rs. 90.
