In terms of fundamentals, ITC is superior over Marico and more over price wise also ITC is attractive than Marico . And more over in stocks like Marico , due to its high price, the liquidity will be a major problem unless and otherwise the stock reaches its rock bottom price with a valid reason.

While there is no debt in the books of ITC and it’s able to fund all it’s FMCG adventures and mistakes from the profit of tobacco and still over and able is able to give a dividend to the shareholders. At the current valuations sure there is a huge margin of safety for the investors.

Any future challenges Marico faces will be a very good opportunity to enter at corrected valuations and there are high chances that the valuations will remain high for a longer period of time. Right now investing in Marico will leave you with very little room for margin of safety and challenges the company faces in the future or near future and that will hit the stock price very badly.
