"Generally, Q3 is a slack quarter for IT companies. But this time around, investors are expecting the best quarterly performance from TCS along with other companies like Infosys, HCL & Wipro with dollar revenue growth of over 3% as against 1%. Technically, if earnings still are as estimated, we believe it has been factored in the stock price. Investors are advised to book profits on every rise, " said AR Ramachandran, Co-founder & Trainer at Tips2trades.
