After receiving positive feedback from brokerages, Jindal Steel & Power has reached a 52-week high.
After Kotak Institutional Equities reiterated a buy call on Jindal Steel & Power (JSPL) and lifted the target price from Rs 565 to Rs 700 per share, the stock rose more than two percent intraday on April 11 to a 52-week high of Rs 577.70.
On full ramp-up, the coal blocks, with a capacity of 15 million tonnes per annum, may save Rs 1,500 per tonne. By the end of the fiscal year 2025, the company expects to have increased its steel capacity by 85 percent. Strong growth visibility is driving the re-rating.
In the last three months, Jindal Steel & Power has returned 45 percent, compared to two percent for the Nifty. Despite the stock’s quick rise, we remain bullish on it due to the company’s near-debt-free B/S, excellent development pipeline (63 percent capacity increase by fiscal year 2025), and considerable value addition from coal blocks bought at low prices.
