Coal India Q4 FY24 expectations

State-owned Coal India is expected to showcase strong operational performance for the quarter ended March 2024, primarily driven by reduced employee costs, according to analysts at Kotak Equities. Net profit for Q4 is projected to increase by approximately 37 per cent year-on-year (Y-o-Y), while net sales may remain flat or even decline by up to five per cent Y-o-Y. Sequentially, net profit is expected to decrease by 17 per cent quarter-on-quarter (Q-o-Q) as sales remain flat. Operating profit or earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (ebitda) for the quarter is forecasted to surge by over 50 per cent Y-o-Y. Dispatches are estimated to witness healthy growth to 202 million tonnes, up eight per cent Y-o-Y in Q4FY24.

Dabur India Q4 FY24 expectations

Elara Securities estimates FMCG company Dabur India to report a seven per cent Y-o-Y increase in the March quarter over the previous year and a 12 per cent rise Q-o-Q. The FMCG is expected to achieve a margin expansion exceeding 250bp Y-o-Y.

Analysts said Dabur may encounter "hurdles from slow beverage demand in the domestic market, due to a delayed Winter."
