Indus Towers Ltd (NSE: INDUSTOWER)

Based in New Delhi, Indus Tower Ltd was founded in 2005 and it is one of the largest telecom tower companies in India. Companies like Vodafone Group, and Airtel have stakes in this telecom company. The company earns profits by strategically acquiring land and installing mobile towers. Then these towers are rented by INDUSTOWER to other mobile operators like Jio, Vi, etc.

Last ten years were very hard for Indus Tower where its shares were on a continuous decline. Its stock price fell by almost 70%. In August 2015, the company marked an all time high of ₹499.65, but later it never went past this level. With each new year, the company kept on making lower lows. However now, it looks like this telecom giant is finally making a comeback.

Shares of Indus Towers have outperformed in financial year 2024. This year, the company reported highest annual sales in the last 10 years (2.4% growth compared to 2023) (source – Industower Moneyconrol). Their quarterly sales are also rising by 6.4% increment YoY.

Year 2023 was turn around for Indus Tower, as they posted positive net profits of 1540 crores in Q4 of 2023. A year back, they were in loss of -708 crores, meaning from 2022 to 2023, Indus Tower’s net profits grew by almost 2.5 times!

Indus Tower might be still attractive to investors with its high EBITDA margins of 36% and consistently high Return on capital employed (ROCE). Foreign institutional investors hold nearly 20% stakes in the company which shows institutional bullishness in the company.

Now INDUSTOWER is trading near breakout level supported by rising Relative strength (RSI). If the RSI keeps trending upside (above 70) we can expect the bullish move to further continue.
