Sharekhan has given Buy recommendation for Oil India with a target price of Rs. 290 in its research report issued on Feb 14, 2022
Sharekhan’s research report on Oil India
Q3FY22 standalone operating profit of Rs. 1,267 crore, up 39% q-o-q missed our estimate due to higher cost of support services. Adjusted PAT of Rs. 1,267 crore, up 147% q-o-q was above our estimate led by higher dividend income. Oil business EBIT up by 24% q-o-q to Rs. 1,199 crore while gas EBIT loss declined by 68.5% q-o-q to Rs. 108 crore primarily due to rise in oil & gas realisation. Oil realisations rose by 10% q-o-q to $79/bbl while volumes were in-line. Potential steep upward revision in domestic gas price (OIL’s expectation of +90-98%/+22% for H1FY23/H2FY23 to $5.5-5.75/$7 per mmBtu) and surge in crude oil prices bodes well for earnings of upstream PSUs. We thus increase our FY22E/FY23E/FY24E EPS by 19%/25%/10% for Oil India.
We maintain our Buy rating on Oil India with a revised SoTP-based PT of Rs. 290 as risk-reward seems favourable in the rising oil & gas price environment. The stock trades at 4x its FY2023E EPS (including earnings contribution from NRL).
