The companies, which are focused on urban small-ticket products, are not facing any demand pressures yet, noted the brokerage in a research report. Avenue Supermarts, Bata, Marico, Nestlé and Titan are most likely to outperform or meet both revenue and margin expectations as they are predominantly urban focused. The brokerage believes that the sector will not die out anytime soon and gives top stock ideas from the sector that has immense potential to grow in earnings.
