UBS raised its ratings on Wipro to "buy" from "sell", saying revenue momentum will start picking up from the October-December quarter, while a cyclical recovery could help speed up a recovery in the software services exporting sector.
UBS also raised its 12-month price target to Rs 510 from Rs 340.
The company is set to announce its results for the October-December quarter of 2012 on Friday morning. Its rivals Infosys, TCS and HCL Tech have already reported their numbers, which were better than forecast on every parameter.
Shares rose 2.13 percent to Rs 429 at 9:49 hours IST on Bombay Stock Exchange. The stock gained nearly 16 percent in last one month and 22 percent in three months.
