Here's what they said.
Credit Suisse has a neutral stance on the stock with target price raised to Rs 1,690 from Rs 1,375. The brokerage raised Jio's enterprise value to $88.5 billion and assigned an enterprise value of $17.5bn for non-wireless verticals considering significant progress in many of them and possibility of aggressive customer ramp-up.
Motilal Oswal raised equity valuation for digital and retail to Rs 1385 per share currently from Rs 315 per share 3 years ago. Considering the firm would become a net debt free, the brokerage has raised multiple for refining and petrochemicals from 6 times to 7.5 times. It raised target price for RIL to Rs 2000 from Rs 1743 per share.
Angel Broking raised its target price from Rs 1,879 to Rs 2,073, an upside of 10.4% from the current market price. Given that the stock has rallied by more than 120% from its March lows there could be some volatility in the stock post the Q1FY21 numbers. Despite any possible short term volatility we are positive on Reliance Industries share from a long term perspective. The company has built a dominant position in the retail and telecom business which will be key growth drivers for the company going forward. Potential listing of the digital and retail business over the next 3-5 years would also lead to significant value unlocking for shareholders in the long run.
