Here's a look at how brokerages expect the stock to move after the firm's Q4 earnings.
Brokerage Motilal Oswal said the Q4 earnings of the auto major were a mixed bag. JLR mix deteriorated due to a runout of the old Range Rover, whereas the recovery in India businesses was strong.
The brokerage has maintained its buy rating on the stock post Q4 earnings.
"Tata Motors should witness a gradual recovery as supply-side issues ease and commodity headwinds stabilize (for the India business). It will benefit from: a) a macro recovery, b) company-specific volume and margin drivers, and c) a sharp improvement in FCF and leverage in both JLR as well as the India business. The stock trades at 13.4x FY24E consolidate P/E and 3.2x EV/EBITDA ratio. We maintain our Buy rating, with a target price of Rs 485 per share (Mar'24E-based SoTP), " the brokerage said.
CLSA has upgraded the stock from sell to underperform. It has also raised its target price to Rs 411 from Rs 392. The brokerage said performance of the domestic business is strong while the company will continue to see challenges from the JLR front. Strong demand should lead to volume growth, the brokerage added.
Morgan Stanley said JLR is set to have a weak Q1 but guidance for FY23 is a positive surprise. unlike in 2018 downcycle, the firm is now better placed on JLR, as well as India PVs & CVs. It maintained an overweight stance on the stock with a target price of Rs 560.
