ICICI Securities analysts Manoj Menon, Aniket Sethi, and Karan Bhuwania have set a buy target on Titan in their new research note.

The analysts stated in their sector-based research dated June 11 that “We feel that obligatory hallmarking will level the playing field in the Indian jewellery market, resulting in further formalisation, and we will keep our BUY recommendation on Titan and Kalyan.

Titan, according to the trio, “Tanishq, Kalyan, Joyalukkas, and Senco’s unit economics (FY20) were compared (Table 1). Titan outperforms other jewellery companies in terms of operating profitability (despite having substantially smaller unit sales than Joyalukkas).”

According to the researchers, when comparing companies in the gems and jewellery sector, “Titan has the upper hand in terms of return measures (RoCE of 28 percent ; this also includes other businesses).

Given the high revenue intensity (sales/sq. ft.), Joyalukkas has a solid RoCE of 21%. Senco’s RoCE print is the result of a strong franchisee system. In comparison to other players, Kalyan has a poor return profile. Titan is the most efficient in terms of inventory days (131; includes other firms), followed by Joyalukkas (144), Senco (147), and Kalyan (167).”

Last month, ICICI Direct Research Analysts Bharat Chhoda and Cheragh Sidhwa said, “Titan has been an exceptional performer in the discretionary space, with stock price appreciating at a 36 percent CAGR in the last five years,” adding, “We continue to be structurally positive on the stock as high growth visibility justifies premium valuations and maintain a BUY on the stock.” “stock,” he says.

Titan has a target price of $2,725, or 66 times FY24E EPS, according to the ICICI Direct pair

Titan has also been granted a buy recommendation by Centrum. According to Shirish Pardeshi, Consumer Research Analyst at Centrum, “e Titan’s approach of addressing millennials and matching their aspirational desire with new designs and platforms could pay off handsomely. Market share gains are indicating that the sector is becoming more formalised. We remain optimistic and anticipate a speedier rebound and increased margins.

The Caratlane/eyewear segments’ comeback and profitability prospects have yet to be factored in. In light of FY22, we decrease FY23E/FY24E earnings by 15%/10.9 percent and maintain our BUY recommendation, with a revised DCF-based TP of Rs2,817 (implying 69.5x FY24E EPS). Risks include unreasonable rivalry from regional players, a prolonged economic recovery that reduces demand for jewellery, and rising gold prices.”
