See L&T climb back to Rs 1600/share levels: IDBI Capital

On the company's stock price, Rohit Natarajan said that there could be a knee-jerk reaction but going ahead there are a bunch of catalysts like the Union Budget, big ticket prospect orders of around Rs 700-800 billion, which could act as a trigger and push the stock price back to Rs 1,600 per share levels in the near term.


Infrastructure and engineering major Larsen & Toubro reported a 39 percent rise in consolidated net profit to Rs 972.4 crore year-on-year (YoY) and revenue of Rs 26,286 crore -- a marginal growth of 1.4 percent on a yearly basis -- for the third quarter of FY17.


L&T achieved an 18 percent growth in Q4 of the last fiscal, and Rohit Natarajan, Analyst Institutional Equities, IDBI Capital Markets Services, says its Q4FY17 guidance of 20 percent also looks achievable.


Speaking to CNBC-TV18, he said that on the whole, L&T has an intact order pipeline, there have been no cancellations and prospect order inflow also looks healthy.
