TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Tata Consumer Products Ltd’s shares have undergone a massive re-rating since the restructuring of the Tata group’s consumer businesses last year. This has continued and even accentuated after the company’s June quarter results.
The non-alcoholic beverages and food company delivered a strong set of results, with pre-tax earnings increasing by 42% year-on-year (y-o-y). But the stock’s 15% jump in three trading days is clearly taking things a bit far. Tata Consumer shares now trade at 47 times estimated FY22 earnings based on Bloomberg data. Valuations are now on a par with packaged foods company, Britannia Industries Ltd’s stock, which trades at 47.5 times FY22 estimated earnings. Britannia’s pre-tax earnings had increased by 81% for the June quarter, as a result of a spike in at-home food consumption as people stayed indoors
