Reliance shares have gained nearly 9% in the past one month, while the stock has surged more than 24% in three months. Three-year returns on Reliance shares come at over 53%.

On January 19, the billionaire Mukesh Ambani-led energy-to-telecom conglomerate Reliance Industries (RIL) reported an 11% year-on-year (YoY) rise in net profit at 19,641 crore for the third quarter of FY24.

The company’s gross revenue in Q3FY24 increased 3.2% YoY to 2,48,160 crore led by continued growth momentum in consumer businesses. The revenue was largely led by retail, oil & gas segments, while the oil-to-chemicals (O2C) arm’s revenue declined on account of lower price realisation.

The company's earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) in the December quarter rose 17% to 44,678 crore, driven by retail and oil & gas segment.

RIL’s EBITDA for Digital Services rose 11% YoY, as average revenue per user (ARPU) grew 2% YoY to 181.7, in addition to a 9% YoY rise in customer base to 471 million.

“Reliance reported largely in-line earnings during the third quarter of FY24. O2C and Jio EBITDA, both saw a slight miss on our estimate which was albeit offset by better Upstream (due to lower opex) and in-line Retail," said Emkay Global Financial Services.

It broadly maintained FY24-26E earnings estimates, but raise SOTP-based TP by 8% to 2,950 per share, on the back of higher new energy value (1.5x EV/IC) as development progresses, higher Jio EV/EBITDA target, and rollover to Dec-24E. The brokerage maintained an ‘Add’ rating on Reliance Industries.

Earlier, Nuvama Institutional Equities had said Reliance was sprinting towards commencing New Energy-chain production and with its strategic mergers & acquisitions (M&A), PLI-wins and plant progress. Thus, given its fully backward integrated 20GW module capacity, Reliance Industries needs a valuation re-rating for its New Energy business.

The brokerage raised its target price on Reliance Industries shares by 5% to 3,105 per share by rolling forward RIL’s New Energy valuation to FY26E sales. It has a ‘Buy’ rating on the RIL shares.

At 12:00 pm, Reliance shares were trading 4.11% higher at 2,821.85 apiece on the BSE with a market cap of 19.08 lakh crore.
