Shares of Avenue Supermarts jumped 4.4% on Thursday to hit their 52-week high of Rs 4,238 on the NSE after Hong Kong-based brokerage CLSA initiated coverage on the DMart operator with a buy rating for a price target of Rs 5,107. With today’s rally, the stock has witnessed an interrupted rally over the last four sessions and risen over 8%.

CLSA in a brokerage note said that the private labels under the brand are rising and should drive the next leg of share gains. The company offers the lowest consumer prices due to the lowest operating cost in its view. The $500 billion addressable market is less than 5% organised.

The stock has been out of action in 2024, delivering under 3% returns on a net basis. Its one-year returns of 24% are also lower than 28% returns given by Nifty during this period.

Reacting to the development, analyst Sanjiv Bhasin told ET Now that IIFL was playing more now on the rural income picks and Avenue Supermarts has got more heft in tier II, tier III cities which is a “very-very big positive”. The IIFL Director said that he has a buy view on this counter, however, he continues to be overweight on Jio Retail.
