Brokerage firm Kotak Institutional Equities estimates Nykaa to post a 39% year-over-year growth in the third quarter driven by strong festive demand.

However, brokerage firm Jefferies in their latest research note, cut down its target price for the omnichannel retailer but did maintain the ‘buy' rating for the stock. The firm reduced its price to ₹200 from ₹270 citing "lower multiples to factor in the pullback in valuation for retailers in the context of near-term slowdown concerns."

The firm sees the increased competition and a reduction in the company's ad revenue going forward. It also showed concern about demand waning in the near term which could add pressure on the stock.

Price Action: Shares of Nykaa traded 3.41% higher ₹151.55 in the early hours of trading on Thursday.
