Should you buy the stock?

The research analysts of the broking firm Edelweiss Wealth Research have recommended to buy the stock for a target price of 10332. On Friday, the analysts said in a research report that “We expect +40,000 per month volume for both the recently launched SUV models, as compared to consensus of around 30,000 to 33,000. Market share can move up by 200-300 bps in next 12-18 months driven by its unchallenged franchise. Margins are likely to surprise in FY24E due to higher ASP, it can be around 12% EBITDA margin as per our expectations."

However, the risks for future price performance of Maruti could be slowdown in economy, volatility in raw material prices and rise in competitive intensity, as per the analysts.
