Why Goldman Sachs is bullish on Paytm shares

On reasons for being bullish on Paytm shares, Goldman Sachs report says, "Paytm’s operating metrics have been surprising positively, and we are further raising our FY24-26E EBITDA estimates by 2-5%, with our target price moving to 1,250 (was 1,200). We forecast 30% YoY revenue growth for Paytm in 2QFY24 (Sep ’23; results on 20 October), at the higher end of our India internet coverage, with a 6.3% EBITDA margin (excl. ESOP; was 3.6% in 1Q). At US$200 mn in FY25 EBITDA, we continue to expect Paytm to be the most profitable company within India internet, and see the company turning net income positive in FY25 as a catalyst for the stock."

"We see upside to both Paytm earnings (we are 6%-11% ahead of Visible Alpha consensus on FY25/FY26 EBITDA) and multiples (GS TP implied multiple of 47x FY26 P/E), as we expect continued momentum in lending and payments, with strong operating leverage in the business model. In addition, resolution of outstanding regulatory issues (customer onboarding ban on Paytm Payments Bank or online merchant onboarding ban), and/or inclusion of a bank as a lending partner could act as catalysts for Paytm," brokerage added.

On suggestion to stock market investors in regard to Paytm shares, Goldman Sachs report said, "Investor pushbacks have been around negative impact on Paytm from a potentially adverse credit cycle, and while we expect Paytm to prioritize credit quality over growth, we expect FY25 financial services revenues to still grow 36% YoY (vs 61% in FY24). We reiterate Buy on Paytm with 30% potential upside."
