Retail Industry - Slow Recovery, Increase In Raw Material Costs Cast Shadow: Motilal Oswal

Motilal Oswal Report

After steady recovery in sales in the festive season (in Q3 FY21), the retail industry is witnessing positive trends such as the resumption of store adds and improving working capital and leverage positions.

However, factors such as softness in recovery trends (given the rise in Covid-19 cases) and the risk of increasing raw material costs remain deterrents.

The recent correction does offer a better entry point in these stocks especially given their better competitive positions and balance sheets, and the potential growth in retail stocks.

Nevertheless, we believe the market exuberance may cool down until we see revival in revenues over the next six months.
