Sharekhan has given Buy recommendation for Coal India with a target price of Rs. 190 in its research report issued on Feb 17, 2022
Sharekhan’s research report on Coal India
Q3FY2022 results reflect strong recovery with sharp 20% beat in PAT at Rs. 4,558 crore, up 48% y-o-y/55% q-o-q, led by sharp improvement in e-auction realisation and control on employee cost. E-auction realisation was up 33% y-o-y/22% q-o-q to Rs. 1,947/tonne, while FSA realisations declined 0.9% q-o-q to Rs. 1,370/tonne. Coal offtake volume grew by 13% y-o-y/18% q-o-q to 174 mt (in line), led by strong 17% y-o-y rise in FSA volume offset by a 5% y-o-y decline in e-auction volume. CIL’s growth outlook is improving with sustained focus to increase volume (offtake growth guidance of 17%/4% for FY2022/FY2023), better realisation (higher e-auction premium), and cost efficiencies. Diversification into solar generation, aluminium value chain, solar cell manufacturing, CBM, and coal gasification bode well for long-term growth.
The stock trades at an attractive valuation of 4.8x its FY2023E EPS (close to trough valuation) and offers a high dividend yield of 12-13%. Hence, we maintain a Buy on the stock with a revised PT of Rs. 190.
