This Media Stock Could Generate 22% Returns In 1- Year, Says Emkay Global
Broking firm Emkay Global has a " buy" call on the stock of PVR, with a price target that is 22% higher from the current levels.
The brokerage has set a price target of Rs 2050 on the stock, which is significantly higher than the current levels.
PVR: Performance sees improvement
According to Emkay Global, PVR's Q 3 FY 23 performance improved on the back of better box- office performance.
Footfalls grew 21% QoQ, leading to 37% revenue growth.
Operational parameters - ATP and SPH - also improved on a sequential basis, after a disappointing Q 2.
"Bollywood failed to live up to expectations in this quarter too, with only one movie performing well, while Hollywood and Regional cinema aided collections.
Bollywood's performance remains worrisome, with only one movie managing to break the Rs 1- billion barrier in the quarter.
With content quality not improving, audiences have become selective about visiting theatres.
Further, with ticket and F&B prices being 15 - 20% higher than pre- Covid levels, the overall experience has become expensive.
For subpar content, audiences now prefer to wait for movies to be telecast on OTT instead.
Consequently, footfalls continue to be below pre- Covid levels.
Audience acceptance remains critical, says brokerage
For quality content, there seems to no dearth of audience interest; this is evident from the good performance of select movies.
Hence, content quality remains key.
While the pipeline for the next few quarters stays strong, audience acceptance remains critical and will be the primary factor for PVR's success.
Key risks: 1) persistent poor- performance from Bollywood; 2) OTTs grabbing high- quality content
