Reliance Stock : Jefferies Says 'Buy'

Last updated:
Reliance share and Jefferies's 'Buy' rating.

Reliance has fallen 3% but has gained over 4.5% since the start of the year 2022 compared with NIFTY 50 which is down by 12% since the start of the year 2022. 

Most brokerage firms are weighing heavily on the company. Earlier this month, JP Morgan gave a buy call and now Jefferies Let us look at what is happening with the company.

Jefferies on Reliance

Jefferies has retained a BUY rating on the stock with the target at Rs 2,950 per share. The firm believes that the correction in the stock offers an opportunity adding that there are tailwinds to refining margin in CY22.

The reason for a high target is - multi-year low inventories, declining Russian exports, muted Chinese exports, lower diesel production in Europe, and delays in commissioning of ME refineries are tailwinds to refining margins in CY22.

In its report, the brokerage firm said that Reliance is a key beneficiary of energy inflation, with every $1 per barrel improvement in annualized refining margins, adding an estimated $400-450 million to RIL's consolidated EBITDA. Our initial estimates suggest RIL's oil-to-chemical business EBITDA could rise 60% in the quarter in Q1 this year and account for 35 percent of our FY23 estimate. Continued strength in refining should result in consensus FY23 earnings upgrades.
