• Concerns over long-term growth cast shadow on Petronet LNG

    Although the near-term prospects of Petronet LNG (Petronet) look encouraging, growth, in the long run, appears a bit grim. The stock performance has also been underwhelming.

    The company’s scrip has generated a return of a mere 2 percent in the past month and 4 percent YTD. In the past three years, it is up 16 percent.

    Brokerage house Sharekhan said the stock offers a decent dividend yield of 5-6 percent, and it trades at an attractive valuation of 9.4 times its FY24 EPS or earnings per share and 8 times of FY25 EPS given earnings visibility and RoE (return on equity) of 22 percent.
