Steady quarter, multiple levers for aggressive growth and tackling competition; Buy on dips
- View - The stock is trading at rich valuations of 64x FY23 and 51x FY24 earnings but is developing into a solid 2-3-year growth story. We expect the rich valuations to sustain given increasing aggression on footprint expansion and technology advancement, multiple levers to protect margins despite competition and a strong long-term growth potential with entry into multiple new brands and geographies. It remains a good stock to keep buying on dips.
