ITC - Buy on declines




An established cigarette major, 60% of ITC's revenues are contributed by other businesses such as FMCG, hotels, paper, stationery and agriculture. Nevertheless, ITC relies heavily on the cigarette business as it generates 80% of net profit. Consistent growth, strong cash flows and high dividend payout of more than 45% make the company a safe haven for investors in these uncertain times.

Our recommendation -

ITC is a defensive stock and will give a decent return over a long term. Investors should utilize any sharp correction to buy this stock and hold for a period of 18-24 months for a good return on investment. Buy around 180 levels on a weak day !
