Going ahead

Going ahead the firm is likely to benefit heavily from the government’s Production Linked Incentive (PLI) scheme. It has already signed a deal with laptop maker Acer to manufacture laptops for the domestic market as well as exports. It also has plans to acquire a manufacturing unit under the Bharti Group to start making telecom gears under the PLI scheme.

"Dixon has got a PLI license for the telecom sector. We are proposing to do a joint venture with the Bharti Group. The first manufacturing plant that we will be acquiring will be Bharti's plant in Ludhiana which used to manufacture telephones," Dixon Technologies executive chairman Sunil Vachani said.

The Department of Telecom (DoT) has shortlisted only 31 companies including Dixon Technologies under the production-linked incentive scheme.

A big push to government schemes like Make in India, PLI will prove very profitable for the firm. However, as per experts the valuation of the firm is pretty high, so it is advisable to wait for a dip before accumulating. However, investors who already hold the stock should not sell just yet.
