Here is the 1 Min Short Version of this Article.
DMart is owned and operated by Avenue Supermarts Ltd. (ASL) – a company founded by Mr Radhakishan Damani in 2002.
The scenario of India’s Retail Sector
- D-Mart market share is 10% in Organized retail sector.
- In India’s retail sector, organized sector is only 15% and rest 85% is unorganized sector.
- So there is a lot of room to for organized sector to improve and for D-Mart to capture more.
D-Mart’s Business Model
- D-mart’s Business Model is very Simple i.e. Buy from Suppliers at a low price and give to consumers at a low price with low margins and revenue coming from high volumes.
- Foods and FMCG products have very low margins which consists of 52.4% and 20.3% of D-Mart’s Revenue i.e. major part.
- So these two categories have to sell in volumes.
- They do sell in volumes because the quality of these segment of products provide by D-Mart is very good.
- They Believe in philosophy that If the Quality of product is good customer will come again.
- Here General Merchandise and Apparel products are those products which have high margins which help them to balance on profit margins.
- Also D-Mart believes in Buying their Properties. 80% of their Properties are self owned.
- Also their properties/stores are usually in Suburbs and not in posh neighborhood’s which helps them to buy those properties at a significantly lower prices.
- Their Strategy is to open one store and distribution Centre in suburbs than populate it with more stores in radius of 3–5 kilometers.
- This also helps to capture most of the customers of that area.
- D-Mart’s Sales, income, as well as profits, has been on a continuous rise for the past 5 years. Except the pandemic year which is passable!
- As stated earlier D-Mart like to own their properties rather than lease that is the reason why their tangible assets are on rise year on year which is an excellent thing.
- Also D-Mart is technically a debt-free company which makes them invest all their profits into their business without paying hefty interest.
- Here Most of the Shares are owned by Promotors i.e. Mr Radhakishan Damani.
- So owners of the Company has the most weightage in Decisions of the company which is a very good thing.
- There is No pledging of shares by its owners which shows the trust they are having in their own company.
- Also holdings of the FII’s , DII’s has only increased which again strengthens its fundamentals.
- In retail Sector one of the metrics to measure performance is how much sales per sq ft of their stores are giving here also D-Mart is at least more than 100% ahead of it’s competitors.
- Net Profit % is also good for D-Mart.
- D-mart is very good to buy at current levels which is the stock’s support levels.
- If the Stock Breaks the current support levels of 3400-3420. The next support levels are at 3350–3370.
- This stocks should be bought at every dip to have maximum gains for long term.
If you are invested in this stock for 5–7 years you can get 15–20% returns from this stock.
Again it will interesting to see how jio mart affects d-mart’s business. But according to me the retail space is very big and still has very good growth potentials for these two players to have profits and grow their businesses too.
