Many brokerages have initiated coverage on the stock. While few of them are bullish on it, others have taken a cautious approach.
Initiating its coverage with a ‘hold’ rating, ICICI Securities said, “We see significant scope of operating leverage with global best practices in distribution, sorting as well as consolidation likely streamlining processes.”
“The story of Delhivery, through our lens, is to drive relentless profitability in B2C ecommerce segment, and turn the operations profitable enough and create a profit pool that was long considered to be elusive,” the brokerage added.
On the other hand, Edelweiss started its coverage with a ‘buy’ rating, saying that compared to other new-age players such as Zomatoa and Nykaa, Delhivery has a superior combination of a quicker breakeven and faster-growing cash flow.
International brokerage Credit Suisse also started the coverage with an ‘outperform’ rating citing a favourable industry outlook, Delhivery’s incremental growth that aids its profitability, among others.
However, Goldman Sachs has a bearish view on the stock as it initiated the coverage with a ‘neutral’ rating.
Among the other new-age tech stocks, Nykaa’s parent FSN E-Commerce ended Wednesday’s session marginally higher from Tuesday’s close, while Zomato and Paytm closed lower.
