Stock advantages and risks: Motilal Oswal
According to the brokerage firm, “Over the past couple of years, Commodity Futures volumes on the MCX have seen a decline, led by implementation of new margin norms. Introduction of options and increased volatility in prices led to an improvement in volumes over the past three-to-four months. Implementation of these rules can trigger volume growth in MCX over the medium term. We value the stock at a multiple of 30x FY24E EPS.”
