Brokerages callDomestic brokerage, Motilal Oswal has upgraded its rating on the stock from ‘neutral’ to ‘buy’, with a revised target price of ₹310, noting that the company has beat its Q4 FY24 result estimates, driven by better-than-expected EBITDA margin and PAT and strong revenue growth.

The brokerage increased the earnings estimates by 21 per cent/32 per cent factoring in the Government’s continued measures, for the defense sector, and the company’s improving market share, better-than-expected gross margin, and working capital.

“We increase the valuation multiple to account, for a larger market share of BHE, benefits of technology tie-ups, MoUs, and an improving share of exports, and non-defense in total revenues. We value BHE at 35x P/E on two-year forward earnings,” it added.

Analysts of JM Financial Institutional Securities Ltd, remained positive on the stock, given strong order backlog, sustained margin profile, healthy order prospects, and continuous focus on diversification and export markets. “We expect revenue and PAT CAGR of 21 per cent, and 20 per cent over FY24 – FY26E. We maintain ‘buy’ rating on stock with a target price of ₹225, valuing it at a PE of 30x FY26E,” they said.

However, the brokerage, pointed out that the slowdown in Government spends on defence, and execution delays due to supply chain constraints were key risks. 

ICICI Direct has been positive on the stock considering the strong order backlog of ₹75,934 crore (3.7x of FY24 revenue). and improvement in overall execution led by increasing indigenisation. Order pipeline also remains robust in defence electronics, giving more confidence on future growth visibility.

Global brokerage, Morgan Stanley has given an ‘overweight’ call on BEL, and revised the target price to ₹300. The brokerage, expects some operational efficiencies to remain sticky, and raised the EBITDA margin estimates to 24-24.5 per cent from 22.5-23 per cent earlier.

Meanwhile, Jefferies and Nomura, have given ‘buy’ rating at a target price of ₹305, and ₹300, respectively.
