IIFL has recommended an add rating on Sterlite Industries with a 12-month price target of Rs 684 in its report dated August 20, 2009.
"Sterlite has raised its bid for ASARCO’s acquisition with the upfront cash component now at USD 2.1 billion along with an unchanged USD 207 million in staggered note payments. This bid would be value-neutral at long-term copper prices of USD 4,500/tonne. Current copper price is at USD 6,100/tonne, thereby leaving headroom for further increase in the bid-amount. ASARCO falls within the highest quartile in terms of cost of production. This acquisition would be a departure from the company’s strategy of being cost leader in all its businesses. Sterlite is already executing a number growth projects in India with potential of further expanding its capacity in power business which in our view could be more value accretive as compared to ASARCO’s acquisition. Add Sterlite Industries, with 12-month price target of Rs 684," says IIFL's report
