Edelweiss has retained buy rating on Power Grid Corporation of India in the long term with a target price of Rs 233. Shares of Power Grid ended down 1.3% at Rs 191.70 on Friday while the BSE sensex closed 330.13 points down at 40,323.61.

Company Financials

For the quarter ended 30-09-2019, the company has reported consolidated sales of Rs 9051.29 crore, down -1.40% from last quarter sales of Rs 9179.63 crore. The company has reported net profit after tax of Rs 2523.64 crore in the latest quarter.

Investment Rationale

Power Grid's Q2 profit was along expected lines, said Edelweiss. Importantly, capitalisation of assets picked up pace and jumped 2 times sequentially, it said. The management is confident of commissioning the Raipur-–Pugalur line which is critical to meet its FY20 capitalisation guidance, said Edelweiss. Apart from new project wins, any development on asset monetisation through the investment trust (InvIT) platform is a key monitorable. Power Grid offers 13% earnings growth visibility over FY19–21, said Edelweiss. This, along with its inexpensive valuation and 4% dividend yield, is comforting, said Edelweiss.
