Prospect of Britannia Industries stock going ahead

Lately, Philips Capital maintained a buy call on the counter with a target price of Rs. 3550.
We expect Britannia to deliver superior performance (14 per cent EPS growth CAGR over FY19-22) vs. FMCG peers due to its higher earnings resilience (as biscuits is a low-ticket segment with characteristics of essential products) and lower share (around 5 per cent of revenue) coming from international operations," Philip Capital said in a note
Also, the strength in the stock is indicative of the fact that growth will return with the relaxations allowed.
