Buy for target price of Rs 637 (34% upside)
Nuvama has recommended a buy of Hindware Home Innovation for the target price of Rs 637 on the following rationale:
“From being a manufacturer of just one product, HINDWARE has grown significantly to gain market leadership in sanitary ware and is a major faucet ware player. We are optimistic about its medium to longterm growth prospects given its: i) strong positioning in bath ware, ii) greater presence in pipes and fittings and consumer appliances, iii) comprehensive product portfolio, iv) strong brand recall, and v) wide and expanding distribution reach. With a constant focus on product innovation, a timely ramp up in pipe capacity, and a positive demand outlook, it is expected to deliver strong overall growth. However, due to lower-than-expected numbers in H1FY24, we trim our FY24/FY25 PAT estimate by 17%/14%. We maintain ‘BUY’ with a revised TP of INR637 (earlier: INR672).”
