The company reported a net profit of Rs 489 crore for the quarter ended June 2021 compared to a loss of Rs 208 crore in the year-ago period. Revenue from operations grew 73 to Rs 3,760 crore in the June-ended quarter against Rs 2,171 crore a year ago.

According to MarketsMojo, the company has declared positive results for the last 3 consecutive quarters and has high institutional holdings at 64.3%. Also, the technical trend has improved from Mildly Bullish on June 25, 2021, and the stock is technically in a Bullish range now.
 
Multiple factors for the stock are bullish like MACD, Bollinger Band, KST, DOW and OBV. However, it noted that the valuation seems to be expensive right now.
 
"Apollo Hospitals Enterprises’ (AHEL) Q1FY22 performance was better than estimate led by strong recovery in occupancies along with ARPOB, stock piling by pharmacy customers during 2nd Covid-19 wave and incremental revenue from vaccination. However, margins were low due to lower margins in vaccination business and costs relating to 24x7 initiative," said ICICI Securities.
 
"We remain positive on AHEL’s long-term outlook considering its strong brand and pan-India presence in the hospital segment, margin expansion potential and aggressive focus on creating digital network for pharmacy, doctor consultation, clinics and diagnostics," it added.
 
The brokerage firm expects an improvement in performance to continue in the ensuing quarters supported by higher occupancy, cost control initiatives and continuous growth momentum in the pharmacy segment.
