Analysts' corner Bse Nse Stock

Gujarat Gas & Indraprastha Gas Ltd

Gujarat Gas
Reco price: Rs 377
Target price: NA

Gujarat Gas (GGas) has guided to 8-10 per cent growth in volumes for CY11. However, it runs the risk of degrowth in its direct firing (DF) segment, if gas prices remain higher or inch up further. The DF segment constitutes 21 per cent of GGas’ sales volumes. The company is likely to focus on increasing volumes in the high-value customer segment of DF (with customers willing to pay higher prices). The company is currently focused on continuing penetration into untapped markets in Gujarat. Accordingly, it has bid to operate in the Bhavnagar district. The company plans to revise prices more frequently as against quarterly revision. Management expects sustainable margins of 18-20 per cent.
