The stock is trading at 5.6x P/E and 2.9x EV/EBITDA on FY23E basis with 39.7 percent RoE. "We expect dividend payout to be high, leading to a 12 percent yield at current prices, as incremental capex in diversified segments is expected to be funded primarily by debt", adds the brokerage.

The Q2 e-auction premiums were muted, lacking visibility on catalysts, however, further upsides maybe limited as domestic coal supply improves. "With ESG concerns, a significant re-rating may not be easy", adds the brokerage.
