 Industry Growth Drivers

Metal stocks have gained a lot of traction this year after the prices shoot higher like there is no tomorrow. From large-cap to penny, the whole basket of metal stocks has outperformed the other indices. The rising demand of infrastructure and civil engineering will keep the demand of the base metals intact. The automobile sector is gaining strength again and being the leading producer of ferro-alloys, the company will reap the benefits.


On the financial front, the company had reported a net profit of 340.3 crores for the year ending 2020. The company has a small amount of Rs. 351.3 crores in the form of non-current liability is occupied in balance sheet. Company has been consistently showing a rise in the cash flows despite low debt. Metal companies are expected to be highly leveraged but a low-leveraged metal company deserves good premium. Revenues from the direct operations of the company have fallen a little while the net profits of the company have plunged sharply. Considering the upper price band, the company is demanding a P/E multiple of 21x, higher than the Industry P/E of 14.55. However, the low-leverage capital structure of the company deserves a little more premium valuation.
