Axis Securities’ believe near-term margin delivery is likely to be impacted owing to RM inflation and management’s strategy of prioritizing volumes over profitability for a couple quarters the outlook on demand is improving and management is geared to deliver a healthy volume growth alongside share gains. HUL will invest behind its brands, build on capabilities (tech/GTM), maintain competitive spends even as it continues to look at all levels of cost savings, and take judicious price hikes to manage margins in the near term. From a medium-term perspective we believe, HUL has the right growth matrix like a broad-based portfolio across the e-value matrix, continued cost savings agenda, growing traction in GSK-CH business, and execution prowess. Given the volatile mkt outlook and stable and visible earnings growth we do believe HUL could perform over the long term.
