Sharekhan has given Buy recommendation for NMDC with a target price of Rs. 200 in its research report issued on Feb 10, 2022
Sharekhan’s research report on NMDC
Q3FY22 PAT of Rs. 2,050 crore (down 12% q-o-q) beat ours and the street’s estimate led by better-than-expected margins of Rs. 3,652/tonne (down 23% q-o-q) and higher other income. Robust margin performance was driven by a 19% q-o-q decline in operating cost on per tonne basis. Strong 9.6% y-o-y rise in iron ore sales volume to 9.8 mt (in line with expectations). Steel plant demerger expected by March-April 2022 in case of waiver of creditors meeting. Steep discount of India’s iron ore price to international price and upbeat sales volume guidance provides an upside to our FY23-24 earnings estimates.
We maintain a Buy rating on NMDC with an unchanged PT of Rs. 200, noting the stock’s inexpensive valuation of 2.7x its FY2023E EV/EBITDA for the core business and a high dividend yield of 9-10%. Steel plant demerger would unlock value for NMDC.
