Should you buy the shares of Eicher Motors?

The research analysts Aditya Welekar and Shridhar Kallani of the broking firm Axis Securities said today in their research report that “Royal Enfield (RE) domestic sales contracted by 13% CAGR over FY19-22 led by multiple headwinds. Covid-led lockdowns and higher vehicle prices on account of commodity inflation, weak consumer sentiments, and supply-chain constraints led to lower sales. However, both demand and supply constraints are easing now and lowering commodity prices coupled with vehicle prices that are expected to remain stable would drive an uptick in sales moving forward. In order to gauge the market sentiments, we interacted with over 22+ dealers on a pan-India basis. Our channel checks suggests 20% higher enquiries and footfall in Sep’22 and strong customer response towards the newly launched Hunter 350."

They further added that “RE’s wholesale sales number stood at 70,112 in Aug’22, up 53% YoY and 26% MoM, indicating an easing of production constraints. If the prevailing sales volumes sustain, RE will transition toward a volume growth phase. Against this backdrop, Sep’22 wholesale numbers will be key monitorable to ascertain whether production issues are over. With robust demand, expansive product portfolio, easing supply chains, expanding distribution network, and rapidly growing international sales, we model volume growth of 19% CAGR FY22-25E. The volume growth will drive higher operating leverage, which along with the correction in commodity prices, should lead to EBITDA margin expansion (+510bps over FY22-25)."

“We roll forward our valuation from Mar’24 to Sep’24 and upgrade our rating on the stock from HOLD to BUY with a revised TP of 4,125 ( 3,120 earlier). We value RE standalone business at 27x (from 24x earlier) on Sep’24 EPS ( 3,675) and VECV at 12x EV/EBITDA (from 11x earlier) Sep’24 EBITDA ( 448), implying an upside of 11% from the CMP," they further have claimed.
