Everybody thinks that food is soothing for the brain, body, and soul.
What better to legitimize the consideration that the culinary expressions have gotten in the course of recent long periods of a pandemic?
Let’s face it. When did we last invest as much energy, in the kitchen, as we have in the previous three months?
For some, the upheld Covid-19 lockdown was the motivation to enter the kitchen unexpectedly.
No big surprise, the word ‘Recipe’ found a spot in the top three Google web searches in India, during the lockdown.
The need and eagerness to try in the kitchen may die down. However, certain patterns won’t change at any point in the near future.
For example, Work from Home (WFH) and Cook at Home patterns.
We have no clue about when the lockdowns will be totally lifted. Numerous pieces of the world are now seeing the second period of the infection. India presently can’t seem to see the pinnacle of the main stage.
Along these lines, a great many people would need to maintain a strategic distance from movement and eating out in the close to medium term. Standard food and even periodic delights will keep on being set up at home.
Furthermore, that implies outfitting the kitchen with machines that make cooking simple and brisk.
A 65-year-old organization in India stands to profit hugely from this pattern. Actually, in contrast to most different businesses, the lockdown is a period of benefits postponed yet not denied for TTK Prestige.
Allow me to clarify…
TTK Prestige began as a pressure cooker bringing in an organization more than six decades back.
Considerably after its assembling tasks began, they made just pressure cookers until 2001.
In any case, in the course of recent decades, the organization has enhanced into non-stick cookware, gas ovens, electric apparatuses, and home cleaning. Obviously, it has made a few advancements in its central business of pressure cookers.
It got an ideal tailwind from the usage of goods and Services Tax (GST) and the administration’s Ujjwala Yojana (providing financed gas cylinders). This plan advocated TTK Prestige’s items in the country and urban territories. The organization’s yearly deals development nearly multiplied from 7% in FY15 to 13% in FY19.
By mid-2020, TTK Prestige had sold more than 75 million pressure cookers and cookware around the world. The organization has around 75 models of cookers in 11 variations.
It orders about 33% of the cooking machines showcase in India. With 556 selective retail outlets in 230 towns and urban communities, TTK Prestige likewise has a critical retail nearness.
According to Statista, the entrance of white goods products (little electric and home improvement and cleaning machines), in India, could see a sharp uptick in the years to come.
That as well, considerably in the wake of figuring in the effect of Covid-19 lockdown on the interest. Truth be told, we could even observe a V-formed recuperation in this division before observing it in others.
Most kitchenware producers will profit by this pattern. Be that as it may, the biggest ones like Hawkins and TTK Prestige (with practically 30% piece of the overall industry each) will snatch a greater portion of the pie. Truth be told, not normal for its nearest rival Hawkins, TTK Prestige is better positioned to profit by this pattern. That is on the grounds that while Hawkins still to a great extent sells cookers and cookware, TTK Prestige presently earns practically half of its deals from kitchen home appliances. What’s more, these are bound to become quicker in the post-COVID-19 world.
I expect TTK Prestige to be a decent intermediary to the post-COVID-19 ricochet back in the economy. Its most recent item dispatch in the cleaning arrangements classification saw the development of over 20% in the last quarter of Financial Year 2020.
Its solid financials and lean asset report make it a generally sure thing in current occasions.
In any case, it would be ideal if you guarantee that you purchase the stock in a staggered way.
I suggest a fractional presentation (half) at Rs 5000 or lower, after a sharp correction of around 20 percent from current levels.
Kitchen appliances manufacturing organizations, which have been hit hard by the Covid-19 lockdown, anticipate a resurgence popular in the second or second from last quarter of the year, as the local kitchens have been worried during the lockdown time frame and kitchen improvement might be the first concern in families now.
Solid brands with higher inclination will in general addition during these occasions as customers are not so much imprudent but rather more centered around what they truly need. All things considered, the business recuperation is hard to anticipate given the vulnerability that COVID – 19 has appeared however we trust in a quick come back to regularity.
With limitations set up on the passage of house cleaners, the interest for home and kitchen appliances has gone up. Retailers state dishwashers, clothes washers, and vacuum cleaners are selling in higher numbers than previously. The main lockdown was reported towards the end.
Dishwashers are in colossal interest, right around multiple times more than in March. The interest for personal laptops and mobile phones has likewise gone up as a result of work from home as well as in view of online classes for school and undergrads.
Adequate Capacity to Cater to Incremental Demand
In 2018, TTK Prestige attempted a Rs 2 billion limit extension intend to raise the limit with respect to pressure cookers from 6 million to 8 million, cookware from 5 million to 9 million, and Kitchen appliances to 1 million pieces. This extended limit will permit the organization to fulfill a gradual need in the post lockdown stage without critical CAPEX. Likewise, the incorporated idea of activities benefit the organization as far as quality yield and generally execution effectiveness.
NBFC and Microfinance Loans for Appliances
The credits from NBFCs and microfinance substances have been the greater kicker for development in deals of cookware and machines in littler towns and provincial zones. The administration of TTK Prestige expects development in country pay and simple accessibility of credit to be a drawn-out drivers of development in rural IndiA.
Lean Balance Sheet to Tide Over the Crisis
With just about zero obligation on its books and money equalization to the tune of Rs 3.7 billion (toward the finish of March 2020), the organization is all around put to hold over the impermanent emergency due to Covid-19. Or maybe its solid budgetary circumstance could help TTK Prestige accumulate a greater portion of the market, as some chaotic players are compelled to exit.
Make in India and Huge Overseas Export Opportunity
TTK Prestige, has throughout the most recent couple of years, been effectively seeking after Make in India strategy for the Home and Kitchen Appliances portfolio. It has strengthened its relationship with nearby sellers. The reliance on imports is under 10% of deals and in any event, for these stock-keeping units (SKUs) the organization is searching for neighborhood providers.
On the fare front, TTK Prestige hopes to see clients moving their sourcing to India from China. The organization is in steady commitment with them and this may improve the portion of overseas exports to International markets which is as of now under 10%.
Two Key Concerns for the Stock
Firm Competition in White Goods Fragment
TTK Prestige faces firm rivalry in the electrical kitchen machines section. The market for machines comprises of sorted out national brands, territorial brands just as sloppy players. Aside from pressure cookers, cookware, and Induction cooktops, the market for the remainder of the key product offerings is divided and shared by a few players. Throughout the most recent five years, numerous players both of all shapes and sizes have been entering just as leaving the kitchen appliances portion and the stir is probably going to proceed.
Proceeded with a view of vulnerability in extra cash among the middle class gives space for down-exchanging of passage level value focuses. In this way, the disorderly territorial brands are twisting the market for section level items. Rivalry inside the advanced configuration and online channels have prompted a section of local brands at low value to focus on these channels. This has influenced the margins in the fragment.
TTK Prestige has kept up its initiative situation in key classes like pressure cookers, cookware, gas ovens, enlistment cooktop, rice cookers, and so forth and is consistently improving its piece of the overall industry in the mixer blender fragment.
Be that as it may, value disintegration stays a key hazard to edge and bring proportions back.
Weakness to Rising in Raw Material Prices and Currency Volatility
TTK Prestige’s operating margins stay helpless to unpredictability in the costs of key crude materials (steel and aluminum) and to antagonistic money developments. Furthermore, any change in administrative strategies on imports could affect the cost structure. Previously, the TTK Prestige has been fruitful in moving cost increments to end clients. By the by, I trust TTK Prestige will remain somewhat helpless against any unfavorable development in input costs.
I have in this manner been satisfactorily moderate in my income gauges for TTK Prestige for FY21.
How appealing is the stock cost?
The stock of TTK Prestige has been trading at an average earnings multiple of 35 times over the past 10 to 12 years and around 40 times over the past 5 years.
I have esteemed the supply of TTK Prestige at multiple times assessed FY23 income (have evaluated 36% fall in profits in FY21).
The final target price for the stock is Rs 8000 over a time of five years horizon.
The best purchase cost for the stock is around Rs 3,600.
Purchased at these costs, the supply of TTK Prestige is relied upon to offer aggravated yearly addition of 25% from the normal purchase cost of Rs 3600.
The explanation I didn’t suggest the stock when it exchanged nearer to the best purchase cost in March 2020 was on the grounds that there was almost zero ability to see on the residency of the lockdown and its effect on an absolutely producing efficient TTK Prestige.
I anticipate noteworthy unpredictability in the Indian securities exchanges in the coming many months. In this way, I would prescribe an amazing way to deal with purchasing stocks regardless of whether they seem alluring as far as verifiable valuations.
Since I can’t anticipate if and when there will be one more sharp market sell-off because of the second period of the infection, I encourage you, dear investor, to get ready for a short term drawback. Anticipate that I should suggest purchasing fractional stakes in solid organizations over an upcoming couple of months.
Keep adequate money close by to utilize these purchasing chances for your potential benefit.
What’s more, don’t be upset to see your stocks in the red for some period of time amid the Covid-19 Pandemic.
In a situation of perfect allotment of assets, I suggest holding at any rate of 60% of one’s complete value portfolio in bluechip stocks.
Further, we accept that a solitary bluechip stock ought to in a perfect world not structure more than 5-6% of the all-out portfolio.
Nonetheless, kindly note that this assignment will change from individual to individual. For something that works best for you, we prescribe you converse with your investment advisor before investing.
