JSW Steel Ltd joined the elite 1 trillion market capitalisation club on Monday as its shares surged more than 200% from their March 2020 lows. Intraday, the stock hit a record high of 418.95 on the BSE, gaining 4% from its previous close. At closing, the scrip settled at 417.35 on the BSE, up 3.75% with a market cap of 1.01 trillion.

JSW Steel posted a 21% rise from the year earlier in consolidated revenue in the December quarter to 21,859 crore. Net profit rose to 2,681 crore in the quarter from 211 crore a year earlier. Operating profit grew 2.5 times to 5,946 crore, while Ebitda margin expanded from 13.5% to 27.2%.

The better-than-expected earnings was led by robust steel prices and higher output. “The stock trades at 5.9x our revised FY22E EV/EBITDA. We value the stock at 6.5x FY22E EV/EBITDA. With the steel cycle on an upswing, volume growth at Dolvi and downstream projects commissioning in the next six months, we believe that there is an upside risk to our estimate," Emkay Research said in a 25 January report. According to brokerage Sharekhan, commissioning of Dolvi and downstream projects will expand JSW’s earnings, growing at a 20% compounded annual growth rate between FY21E and FY23E, with return on equity improving to 15-15.6% from 10.5% in FY20.
