Mankind Pharma Shares: What Should Investors Do Post Listing on NSE, BSE?
Ahead of Mankind Pharma’s listing today, global brokerage Macquarie came out with an initiation report on the stock with an outperform rating and a target of Rs 1,400 apiece.
Macquarie noted that Mankind has a net cash of about Rs 280 crore as of December 2022 with strong cash flow generation. FY22 ROIC of 30 per cent and ROE of 26 per cent fare much better than its domestic peers (average ROIC of 17 per cent, ROE 16 per cent) and are in line with MNC peers such as Abbott, Pfizer, and GSK India.
That said, capacity utilisation remains low, suggesting room for improvement, Macquarie said.
“At the upper band of its IPO price of Rs 1,080, the stock is valued at 19 times PER on our FY25e EPS of Rs 56. Our target price of Rs 1,400 is based on 25 times FY25e PER, at a 20 per cent discount to MNC peers to account for innovative product launch optionality with MNC companies. We initiate coverage with an Outperform rating,” the brokerage said.
Santosh Meena, Head of Research, Swastika Investmart Ltd., said: “Mankind Pharma, the biggest IPO of 2023 made its debut in the market at a listing price of 1300. The company’s issue price at the upper band was Rs. 1080, hence it got listed with a profit of around Rs.220 (20%). Mankind Pharma is a well-known and established pharmaceutical company that offers pharmaceuticals as well as several consumer healthcare products. The company has strong fundamentals and it is already attracting outperforming ratings from global brokerage Macuarie. Our recommendation for the IPO was to subscribe, and we maintain a bullish view of the stock, advising investors to hold it for the long term. However, investors who applied for listing gains may either choose to exit or hold it with a stop loss at the issue price.”
