    The company’s focus on the fast-growing specialty therapies like ophthalmology, dermatology, cardiology and pain management, along with focus on niche products has helped it gain an edge in the last few years. Motilal Oswal, which recently initiated coverage on the stock with ‘buy’ rating, said the company has a low US base business and therefore minimum regulatory risks over the medium term. “If the stock holds above the resistance of Rs 1,850, then it can move higher to Rs 2,000,” said Chandan , derivative analyst at Motilal Oswal.

    CERA SANITARYWARE
    CMP: Rs 2,749.55
    Market Cap: Rs 3,576.03 crore
    CAGR Return (%) since FY09: 47.16
    Last 1 year Return (%): 50.66
    P/E: 36.17

    Cera Sanitaryware, a pioneer in the sanitaryware segment, has been a key benefi ciary of the booming housing sector in India, reporting net profi t at a compounded annual growth rate of 22.8% in FY09- FY16 period. “With the government focus on sanitation and low-costhousing, it will continue to do well. It will also benefi t from the Goods and Services Tax coming in,” said Basudeb Banerjee, analyst at Antique Stock Broking. “I won’t be surprised if it touches Rs 3,000 in the next 12 months,” added Banerjee.

    EICHER MOTORS
    CMP: Rs 24,936.80
    Market Cap: `67,853.65 crore
    CAGR Return (%) since FY09: 58.03
    Last 1 year Return (%): 35.46
    P/E:45.00
    Consensus Rating: 25 Buy / 7 Hold / 9 Sell


    The success of its Royal Enfield bikes has made the stock one of the most talked about multi-baggers in recent times. It has delivered profit at a CAGR of 39.8% during FY09-FY16, while in the nine months ended December, profi t rose 51% from the same period a year ago. HSBC in a note on Monday said the stock is fully valued but valuations are justifi edgiven the premium earnings growth. Chandan Taparia of Motilal Oswal said the stock may rise to Rs 25,550 in the near term, breaching which,
    Rs 26,200 would be the next target.

    PI INDUSTRIES
    CMP: Rs 848.90
    Market Cap: Rs 11,679.73 crore
    CAGR Return (%) since FY09: 63.21
    Last 1 year Return (%): 51.04
    P/E: 27.98
    Consensus Rating: 18 Buy / 17 Hold / 3 Sell


    Agriculture inputs provider PI Industries’ custom synthesis business has been a key growth driver for the company in recent years, providing it an edge over its peers. It is the key reason for sustained interest in the stock. The CSM business contributes 60% of the revenue from 20% a few years earlier and also generates higher margin than agrochemicals business, analysts said. However, they feel that the valuation does not leave much room for upside in the near term.

    NATCO PHARMA
    CMP: Rs 784.05
    Market Cap: Rs 13,666 crore
    CAGR Return (%) since FY09: 46.72
    Last 1 year Return (%): 91.55
    P/E: 35.51
    Consensus Rating: 15 Buy / 1 Hold / 3 Sell


    Analysts attributed the strong returns over the years to Natco’s robust pipeline, especially in the segments of Hepatitis C and export formulation. Given the strong pipeline in the US and an uptick in the domestic market, it will continue to command premium valuations, said analysts. Natco’s profi t has grown at a CAGR of 15% in FY09-FY16. “As the stock has run up a lot, it is likely to consolidate between Rs 765 and Rs 810, but a breakdown below Rs 765 can lead to further profi t booking,” said Dharmesh Shah, AVP-Technical at ICICI Securities.
