GAIL's prospects on the mend after poor Oct-Dec quarter showing

Most analysts have cut their Q4 and FY24 estimates but maintain 'buy' recommendations with price targets between Rs 115-Rs 125

The FY23 capex target is Rs 8,000 crore and more than 75 per cent has already been deployed

Disappointing October-December quarter results for the 2022-23 financial year (Q3FY23) notwithstanding, it may be the right time in the petro cycle to look at GAIL as a long-term prospect. The gas marketer-cum-transporter reported its poorest results in 11 quarters.
The standalone earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (Ebitda) and profit after tax (PAT) -- at Rs 260 crore and Rs 250 crore respectively -- were well below Street estimates due to weak performances across segments.
The Ebitda was down 94 per cent year-on-year (YoY), and 85 per cent quarter-on-quarter (QoQ), while PAT was down 93 per cent YoY, and 84 per cent QoQ.
