HCL Tech Q4 Results

IT major HCL Tech reported its results for the Jan - Mar ‘23 period. The company reported a yearly revenue rise of about 18% to Rs 26,606 crores while profits increased by 11% to Rs 3,983 crores for the same period.

The HCL Tech share price has been under pressure in recent times. This can be attributed to the banking crisis witnessed in its key market of the US which has impacted the IT majors like TCS and Infosys recently. Both the IT majors’ results for the Jan - Mar ‘23 period reflected this strength.

Although the HCL Tech share price has corrected marginally in 2023 so far, it is down by more than 4% in the past month and by close to 6% in the past year.

HCL Tech Share price: Analyst view

Morgan Stanley: The renowned global brokerage has an “Overweight” rating on the stock with a price target of Rs 1,160 (down from Rs 1,200 earlier). The firm cited the IT company's aggressive revenue guidance as a trigger that can drive the HCL Tech share price higher. 

JPMorgan: The top global brokerage has an “Underweight” rating on the stock with a price target of Rs 880. The firm remains worried about the company's margin expansion and revenue growth in the near term.

ICICI Securities: The leading domestic brokerage has a “Hold” rating on the stock with a price target of Rs 1,065. Absence of project cancellations and stronger revenue guidance that its peers has been cited as highlights by the firm for HCL Tech share price growth in the near term.

Nuvama: The top brokerage has a “Hold” rating on the stock with a price target of Rs 1,180. The firm cited the company's unfavorable business mix as a headwind. However, high dividend yields, the firm believes, will continue to support the HCL Tech share price.
