4. Motilal Oswal On Vedanta
Leading brokerage firm Motilal Oswal in its October 29, 2022 report said, "With a bearish outlook on metal prices and with a possibility of a ban leading to a run up, we reiterate our Neutral rating on VED as we believe the stock is fully valued in the current environment. We keep our SoTP-based TP unchanged at INR255. While we marginally reduce our aluminum price assumption, savings from captive/linkage coal should help partly offset the downtrend."
Consolidated Net Sales stood at INR 366b (YoY/QoQ: +21%/-5%), 6% ahead of our estimates of INR 345b. The improved Sales was driven by higher sales volume, strategic hedging gains, and foreign exchange gains, which was partially offset by lower commodity prices, added Oswal.
