Morgan Stanley: Overweight | Target: Rs 43,068
Morgan Stanley maintained an ‘Overweight’ stance on the inventory and put a worth goal of Rs 43,068. Q4FY23 efficiency was weaker and missed Morgan Stanley’s estimates. Revenue development will seemingly be weak for the subsequent two quarters. Margin restoration ought to result in income development.
Kotak Institutional Equities: Sell | Target: 33,000
We revise down our FY2024-25 EPS estimates by 20-24%, as we bake in a weak 4QFY23 efficiency and continued subdued demand. Retain SELL with revised FV of Rs 33,000 (Rs 35,000 earlier); roll-forward however. Page Industries is backed by a powerful crew and can finally bounce again; we consider our FV adequately captures this optimism.

Nuvama: Reduce | Target: Rs 36,800
We downgrade Page Industries (Page) from ‘HOLD’ to ‘REDUCE’ because the latest inventory run-up shouldn’t be commensurate with its feeble Q4FY23 efficiency (income/EBITDA down 13%/50%; 35% consensus EBITDA miss). This stems from a mixture of a weak market setting and ARS implementation. Factoring in the identical, we trim our FY24E PAT by 23%; FY25E PAT minimize is far decrease at 6% as we count on the implementation to be transient with development seemingly bettering H2FY24 onwards and persevering with into FY25. Our revised DCF-based TP is Rs 36,800 (49x FY25E PE).
