Choince Brokerage on Vedant Fashions: Subscribe with Caution

At the upper price range of Rs866, the requested valuation of Rs21,017 cr is derived at a P/S of 37.2x on FY21E and 29.2x on FY22E annualized sales. There are no peers listed with the same business profile. Based on our early guesses, the issue is rated at a P/S of 21.2x and a P/E of 44.7x on FY24E. Therefore, we consider the issue to be aggressively priced, leaving no margin of safety for investors. This therefore justifies caution on the valuation front. In addition, a high level of receivables (average of around 50% of sales in fiscal years 19 to 21) may erode the OCF margin in the future. Considering all of the above parameters, we are assigning the issue a “Subscribe with caution” rating.

Sensex extends its decline, down 350 points

Globally, markets are in very volatile territory and this is likely to continue until some clarity emerges on the Fed’s rate hike decision in March. If the Fed opts for a 50 basis point rate hike in March, as some pundits fear, there will be a selloff in equity markets globally. But now it is a low probability event. The Fed would prefer gradual rate hikes without disrupting the markets. In India, the RBI is expected to raise the reverse repo rate at the February 9 meeting, indicating policy normalization. Technically, the market is strong, helped by the steady decline in FII sales, and DIIs and retail investors are consistently buying dips. Finances are strong and IT is making a comeback after the recent correction. This trend should continue.
