The company has reported net margins of over 3% only in the current year, whereas in previous years the net margins were under 1%, which raises serious questions about the ability of the company to sustain valuations. Also, the ROE is above 10% only in the current fiscal but was just around 3-4% in the previous years. Also, if you look at the sales trend of the company, the revenues have actually contracted since 2020, which means the company is yet to come to come to terms with the supply chain constraints caused by the pandemic. This is also a sector where there is a lot of pressure coming from the unorganized sector and that should also keep the stock under pressure.

The traditional P/E model becomes difficult to apply in the case of Sahaj Fashions as the company has delivered a relatively better performance only in the latest year. Also, the P/E equations change drastically if the current year is included but remain unattractive if the latest FY23 year is not included. That is the real challenge for investors as they need to take a call on whether the FY23 performance was an exception or a harbinger of the future growth of the company. The investment call would be based on that inference. Investors have to be cautious about the company as it ranks high on risk and returns on capital and sales have not been too attractive on a consistent basis.
