InterGlobe Aviation, Avenue Supermarts, MRF hit new highs

Shares of Avenue Supermarts, which operates supermarkets under the brand name of D-Mart, InterGlobe Aviation, which operates no-frills carrier and tyre major have hit their respective new highs on the BSE after the benchmark indices gaining more than one percentage points on Thursday.

The attractiveness of D-Mart’s operating model stems from the significantly higher level of throughput that its stores generate - nearly 2-3x what other retailers clock on an average, which helps justify its choice of owning the stores (including the cost of land on which they are built), and the discounts (‘Every Day Low Price’ instead of festivals or seasons related limited period discounts) that it pampers its shoppers with – the latter being one of the key drivers of footfalls and conversions for DMart, in our view, the brokerage firm said in a recent report.

Analyst at Anand Rathi Share and Stock Brokers has ‘buy’ rating on with a target price of Rs 80,045 as the brokerage firm expects better revenue growth and stable rubber prices augur well for MRF’s margin expansion in coming quarters.
