Dixon Technologies downgraded to ‘underperform’ by Jefferies

Jefferies Financial Group Inc. has downgraded Dixon Technologies (India) Ltd, citing softer business-to-consumer demand and stretched risk-reward ratios.

Strong business-to-business December quarter saw softness in discretionary demand impacting the B2C mix of Dixon, the brokerage said in a note on Feb. 26. “B2B and projects business continues to be healthy, supported by (a) CapEx cycle.”

On this basis, the brokerage downgraded Dixon to ‘underperform’ and has revised the target price to Rs 5,920 and to Rs 1,125 apiece, respectively.

  • Stock has sharply rallied by over 150% in the last one year and now trades at FY25 PE of 73 times.
  • The current growth trajectory could be a key monitorable post expiration of PLI tenure.
  • Softer demand warrants caution, as most of Dixon’s end-user categories are B2C and discretionary.
