Religare is bullish on Somany Ceramics and has set a target of Rs 615 on the stock with a buy rating.
"SOMC's earnings should increase at a 32% CAGR over FY16-FY18E with improving return ratios. We value the company at 22x FY18 PER - at a ~5% discount to KJC's target multiple vs. a discount of 15% earlier. Maintain BUY with a Mar'17 TP of Rs 615," the company has stated in its research report.
Reliance Securities has placed a buy call on IndusInd Bank with a price target of Rs 1278.
"The Bank is well on the track to achieve the target set for Planning Cycle-III by consistently achieving its short-term and medium-term goals. As the Bank's total branch count is expected to reach 1,200 by FY17E-end, we believe that it is likely to sustain strong growth in CASA deposits as well as fee income. Stress in CV/consumer finance portfolio will also come-off due to improved operating environment.
