The firm said that the company has developed a manufacturing set-up that is difficult to replicate. The firm added that the company has to grow its turnover to ₹9,000 crore-₹10,000 crore over the next five years. The analysts noted that the stock’s valuation is cheap and the company’s long-term growth potential is not priced in.

The coverage initiation comes just days after the company announced getting a massive government contract. A consortium between RK Forgings and Titagarh Rail Systems won a 12,000 crore contract to manufacture and supply 15.4 lakhs forged wheels over a span of 20 years.
