Why the buy rating on BPCL and Indian Oil?

According to Motilal Oswal, while oil marketing companies may lose market share to electric vehicles in the interim, the future remains bright if they continue to invest in the hydrogen ecosystem.

“We reiterate our Buy rating on Indian Oil Corporation, valuing the stock at 1.1x Dec’23E BV. We expect a FY23E/FY24E FCFF yield of 8.2%/9.5%. We reiterate our Buy rating on BPCL, valuing the stock at 1.8x Dec’23E BV. We expect a FY23E/FY24E FCFF yield of 7.3%/7.5%. Stabilization of the polyols complex at Kochi and widening of LtHv differential is expected to add to Kochi refinery gross refining margins,” the brokerage has said.

According to Motilal Oswal, transportation fuels are witnessing an ever-changing landscape. “It increasingly appears that electric vehicles would transition towards hydrogen fuel. As hydrogen is similar to the current fossil fuels in terms of transportation and dispensing, it would require investments and infrastructure like retail outlets, which only players like oil marketing companies can afford.
