Sushil Finance has recommended buying the shares of Dabur India with a target price of Rs 153 in its recent research report.
"Considering strong brand portfolio, leadership position in Ayurvedic/Herbal products, recent domestic distribution & sales re-alignment, favourable domestic & International sales mix, expected turnaround of its Namaste business, recovery in core categories, Greenfield unit in Sri Lanka for packaged Fruit Juices, innovation initiatives & introduction of new products/variants, we expect Dabur's Revenues & APAT to grow at a CAGR of 14.8% & 18.9% resp during FY12-FY15E. We believe the current pressure on discretionary staples in India will not impact Dabur as it contributes only 10% to its domestic sales. At the CMP of Rs.133, the stock trades at a valuation of 21.4x its FY15E EPS of Rs. 6.2. We initiate coverage with "Accumulate" rating & target price of Rs. 153 (24.5x FY15E EPS, which is its 5 Yrs Avg P/E)," says Sushil Finance research report.
