Market Outlook this coming week!

Nifty50 : This Week

Foucsed story of the Week - DMart is falling 🔻! Should you invest?

Avenue Supermarts is tumbling in the share market- 40% down 📉 from the all time high is very concerning, so let us excavate the mystery behind what went wrong in this fundamentally sound company?


For those who don’t know, this gem founded by Mr. R. K. Damani, engages in organised retail business and runs Supermarts throughout 10 states and 1 UT in India, under the name D-Mart.

Its presence is primarily in western and southern Indian States.

57% of its revenue comes from Food, 20% from retailing and remaining 23% comes from general merchandise and apparel segments.

The company follows cluster-based expansion resulting in a low-cost structure.

Coming to the point, let’s find what went wrong?

The company reported very poor number in the recent quarter. The revenue from sales per retail business area is in a falling trend which depicts the falling efficiency of the business.


The fixed asset turnover ratio has fallen from 4.3 times to 1.9 times which is a fall of 56% and the inventory turnover ratio also has fallen from 14.6 times to 6.7 times, a fall of 55%.

The return on capital employed of the company has fallen drastically from 25.9% in FY19 to 11% in H1FY23 which is concerning.

The stock is trading at a PE of 98 times, where as the Departmental Stores Industrial PE under the Retailing sector is 105.12. Surprised? This industry has comparatively high PE ratio only.

For any stock to trade at such a high valuations, it should be able to justify itself. With falling sales and a bad quarter the stock has slumped around 40% from its all time high. So until there is an uptick in all this parameters from the view of Fundamentals its better to wait and watch.

What our premium Fundamental Analysis tool – The GSS Sheet has to say?
Good: Interest Coverage, Promoter Holding, Moats and Risks, Interest and Other income, Compounded Profit Growth 5 Yr and TTM, Stock CAGR 5 Yr
Decent: ROCE 5 Yr, EPS
Bad: Free Cash Flow 5 Yr, Stock CAGR 1 Yr, Dividends
Verdict: A good buy with a strategy but proceeding with caution as Free Cash Flow is negative

The chart below shows the PE (in green) vs the price(in pink) of the stock. One could deduce the hysteria, when the PE of Avenue Supermarts crossed 300 on the stock creating a new all time high.

Now, let us ponder on what technical analysis have to say 🤔 ?

With recent buy signals in MACD and RSI, the stock is trying to move upwards but is facing resistance at ₹ 3540 level.  If the resistance gets broken, it might rise up swiftly.

So should you buy or not?  

Yes, one can enter this stock today with a strict SL of ₹ 3434, as the fundamentals of the company haven’t changed much right now.
