JSW Infrastructure: Add for Portfolio during consolidation

JSWINFRA is the fastest growing port-related infrastructure company in terms of growth in installed cargo handling capacity and cargo volumes handled during Fiscal 2021 to Fiscal 2023, and the 2nd largest commercial port operator in India in terms of cargo handling capacity in Fiscal 2023.

Their installed cargo handling capacity in India grew at a CAGR of 15.27% from 119.23 MTPA as of March 31, 2021 to 158.43 MTPA as of March 31, 2023. During the same period, their cargo volumes handled in India grew at a CAGR of 42.76% from 45.55 MMT to 92.83 MMT.

Technical Setup:
After a good initial rally and listing, JSW Infra is consolidating in a range. I believe levels of 230 will be held here without much issues. A new breakout above the previous all time high would mean that the stock can give much higher targets for the future. It is a portfolio grade stock for me given India's growth story. Hold for medium to long term.
