Comments by Emkay Global
About the stock, Emkay Global stated, "We reiterate Buy with a Mar'23 Target Price of Rs. 300 (unchanged) and assign a 1-year fwd PE of 20x, which is at a 10% premium to 5-year average PE. Key risks: higher commodity inflation, value dilutive QIP capital allocation, and infrastructure slowdown."
The brokerage firm added, "QIP capital is expected to be used for inorganic options, which should support the bottom line. This includes the possibility of an acquisition of a small-sized local manufacturer, operating in one of ACE's key existing businesses and benefiting the company's pricing power and market share."
