Tech Mahindra Q2 results review: 

Tech Mahindra has reported a strong set of numbers for the Jul-Sep quarter, inline with analyst estimates. The company has witnessed strong traction across all key markets as they invested in digital capabilities through strategic partnerships like its recent acquisition of Lodestone. The company's huge exposure to the Communications vertical remains a potential opportunity as the company is seeing traction in 5G investments. Improved capital allocation will ensure further growth in key segments.The company remains committed to operational efficiency and will continue to create value to shareholders through efficient capital return.

Brokerage View: 

Brokerages continue to stay on the sidelines on Tech Mahindra, as they see its strong business performance balanced with elevated operational risks in a supply constrained environment. They expect a gradual improvement in EBIT margin, given the levers around productivity and cost optimization. However, elevated operating metrics and supply-side pressures remain a risk to the margin estimates. Management commentary on revenue momentum and deal flow indicates that FY22 will likely see Tech Mahindra record organic revenue growth significantly ahead of expectations.

Of the 49 analysts tracking the company, 42 maintain 'buy', six suggest 'hold' and one recommends a 'sell'. The average of analyst price targets compiled by Bloomberg implies an upside of 2.9%.
