Religare overweight on Maruti Suzuki India; 24% upside seen at TP 

Domestic brokerage firm Religare Broking is overweight on the auto stock and sees a potential upside of 24.8 per cent at a target price of 12,715.

The carmaker's structural shift towards dedicated utility vehicle (UV) portfolio has garnered strong growth for the company on the revenue and realizations front. Given the slow pace of sales in the mid and compact category of vehicles, UVs will continue to drive the volume growth in the coming quarter while new launches as well as renewed models in the mid and compact segment could result in volume expansion further. 

‘’Factoring this, we estimate its revenue/EBITDA/PAT to grow at a CAGR of 15.1 per cent/25.5 per cent/25.7 per cent over FY23-26E. Hence, we remain overweight and maintain our Buy rating with a target price of 12,714 valuing the company at 25x on FY26E EPS,'' said Religare Broking.
