Analyst Recommendations – Should you subscribe?

Angel Broking: Subscribe

“We think Mrs Bectors Food Specialities should be able to grow in line with the industry managed by the promoters having more than 25 years of sector knowledge. Peers such as Britannia Industries, Nestle India, Prataap Snacks and DFM Foods are trading at trailing PE of 50.2 times, 85.6 times, 57.1 times and 97.6 times, respectively. Given the discount, there is comfort on the valuation. We recommend “Subscribe” to Mrs Bectors Food IPO for long term as well as for listing gains, said Keshav Lahoti of Angel Broking.

Prabhudas Lilladher: Subscribe
