This little master of small consumer appliances and lightings is wonderfully positioned to be part of the India consumer story. Bajaj Electricals’ strong nationwidedistribution network gives it a better reach than competitors in the small appliances and lightings/fittings business.
The company’s core strength is design, marketing and distribution while it outsources almost all its appliances via strong and exclusive vendor relations. Bajaj has diversified from a pure lights business into engineering and projects, which will boost growth and help improve the margins to around 11%.
The catch is higher working capital needs. But a large order backlog of over Rs 1,100 crore gives good growth visibility.
The stock is currently trading at under 12 times estimated FY12 earnings, when I expect it to earn almost 30% on return on equities. This solid stuff has corrected recently along with the rest of the mid-cap space. Undeservedly so, I may add.
Our Recommendation :
The scrip is finding good support at 220 levels which provides an excellent buying opportunity. Buy and hold for a target price of Rs.350 holding period of 1 year.
