"Tata Motors stock has recently started gaining traction and breached its lower band of consolidation rectangular channel, portraying a bullish breakout. The surge has been backed by decent volumes supporting the optimistic view in the scrip. In coming sessions, it can face stiff resistance near its 200-DMA, which also coincides with a falling trendline on the daily chart that is placed around Rs 427-430 zone. A decisive breakthrough above the same could only set a new rally. Therefore, traders should wait for the dip towards Rs 405-400 levels for initiating long position in it with the stop loss of Rs 380. They can wait for the target of Rs 430 and Rs 450 levels," said Shukla.

AR Ramachandran from Tips2trades said, "Rs 423 will be strong resistance for Tata Motors on the daily charts. A close above this level could lead to targets of Rs 443-472 in the near term. Support will be at Rs 408."

Motilal Oswal has given a ‘Buy’ rating with a target of Rs 520 after the firm announced its global sales on January 10. Motilal Oswal Securities said all three businesses of Tata Motors are in the recovery mode. While the India commercial vehicle (CV) business will see a cyclical recovery, the India passenger vehicle (PV) business is in a structural recovery mode, it said.

"JLR is also witnessing a cyclical recovery, supported by a favorable product mix. However, supply-side issues will defer the recovery process. While there will be no near-term catalysts from the JLR business, the India business (50 per cent of SoTP) will see a continued recovery. The stock trades at 17.1 times FY24E consolidated EPS and 3 times P/BV. We maintain our ‘Buy’ rating with a target of Rs 520," Motilal Oswal said.
