According to Edelweiss, "As the issue of semi-conductor shortage eases from Oct-21, we expect production schedules for 2W/PV OEMs to normalize from Q4FY22. Further, we expect LED penetration for both 2Ws and 4Ws to also see an uptrend. Being the market leader in the automotive lighting space, LUMAX should be a major beneficiary of the LED transition. We maintain our 'BUY rating with a target price of Rs. 1,710/share, valuing it at 18x FY23E EPS."
