Analysts at Edelweiss said that Titan’s numbers were exceptional, with an estimate-beating margin of 13 per cent in the Jewellery segment being the key highlight. “Factoring in the margin outperformance, we are raising FY23E EPS by 4 per cent. We value Titan at 80 times 9MFY24E EPS (76 times FY24E) – a premium to its five-year average of 60 times – and this reflects its growth trajectory and potential scale-up in other verticals, i.e. watches & wearables and Caratlane,” it said while suggesting a target of Rs 3,119.

We maintain Buy with a target of Rs 2,700 from Rs2,530 earlier, valuing Titan at a reduced multiple of 50 times due to a 3-month rollover. Faster traction in Taneira and International operations could offer potential upside,” Emkay said.
