Aegis Logistics (AGIS) is a leading gas logistics player in India with two main divisions – gas and liquids. While the gas division is its main growth driver, the liquids division provides the company with steady cash flows, said experts who track the company.
Despite muted March quarter results and the impact of lockdowns imposed by various states, Aegis continues to remain a preferred play given the increasing LPG penetration in the country.
The government’s commitment to cleaner fuels, net cash on the company’s balance sheet, strong return on equity (RoE), capacity expansion, and strategic presence at key ports are some of the factors that make the company a preferred bet.
Experts see further upside in the stock towards Rs 450-500 from the current Rs 351 – an upside of another 40 percent.
