ankit asked, HOW IS FUTURE OF RPL?
Madhusudan N Sarda answers, We continue to believe that RPL is the best play on expected continued robustness in refining margins. RPL's under-construction refinery would have high complexity and a superior product slate, which would enable it to produce higher margins on lighter and medium distillates conforming to evolving stringent specifications of its target export markets. The DCF based Target Price is Rs. 144. However one can also consider RIL since the Trickle down effect will be seen in the Holding Company.
