Should you buy or sell?

Brokerage firm ICICI Securities maintained a buy call on the stock with a target price of 1,360, implying a 16 per cent upside.

The brokerage firm said Tata Consumer’s Q4FY24 was in line with its estimates.

"We reckon the stock trigger in FY25-26 is likely outperformance of growth businesses (which are gross margin accretive too). Post-acquisition of Capital Foods and Organic India, the salience of growth businesses is nearly 30 per cent of India branded sales," ICICI Securities said.

"It needs to execute the basics - derive synergies, distribution expansion, increase in through-put per store, etc. Starbucks plans to reach 1,000 outlets by FY28 (421 currently). We believe Tata Consumer has all the ingredients (resources, bandwidth, innovation pipeline, etc.) to achieve these targets," ICICI Securities said.

Brokerage firm Nuvama Wealth Management also maintained its buy call on the stock with a target price of 1,400, citing Tata Consumer’s Q4 EBITDA and adjusted PAT were ahead of its estimates while revenue was in-line with its estimates.

Tata Consumer continues to drive growth via innovation, distribution expansion and foray into new segments, Nuvama observed. The brokerage firm said it would revisit its estimates and target price for the stock after the earnings call.
