Here' s a look at what analysts said about the outlook of stock after the huge upmove on counter.
AR Ramachandran, Co-founder & Trainer, Tips2Trades
"A very strong uptrend in financials led by Nifty Bank due to expectations of milder interest rate hikes has led to an excellent rally even in the NBFC space including Tata Investment Corporation. Investors should book profit in Tata Investment Corporation at current levels as the stock is technically very overbought. Levels only close to Rs 1,675- Rs 1,700 should be used to initiate fresh buy positions."
Manoj Dalmia, founder and director, Proficient Equities
"Tata Investment has given a huge move recently. Investors can wait for a small retracement for entry. There is a small retracement expected to Rs 2,299 levels which can be a good point to accumulate. Aggressive investors can even buy at current levels with a stop loss of Rs 2,229. We can expect a target of Rs 3,343 from the current levels."
Ravi Singh, vice President and head of Research, Share India
"Tata Investment Corporation has shown a massive rally on the back of its robust revenue from the higher dividend income, interest and profit on sale of investments. The stock is also witnessing potential surge in volumes on technical setup and the momentum indicators on daily and weekly chart are reflecting strong upside move ahead. The counter may touch the levels of Rs 3,000 in near to medium term."
