Brokerages remain positive on GAIL, especially after its results for December quarter. HSBC thinks that the stock is attractive after recent correction.

It reported a 33 percent jump in December quarter net profit as it sold more natural gas and transported higher volumes.

Net profit in October-December 2018 at Rs 1,681.23 crore, or Rs 7.46 a share, was higher than the earning of Rs 1,262.22 crore, or Rs 5.60 per share, in the corresponding period of the previous fiscal, the company said in a statement here.

The profit was higher "mainly due to better performance by natural gas marketing, natural gas transmission, liquid hydrocarbon (LHC) and LPG transmission segments", it said.

Here is a gist of what brokerages have said about the results.

Brokerage: HSBC | Rating: Buy | Target: Rs 487

HSBC believes that after the recent correction, the stock now looks attractive. Regulatory clarity & improving gas supplies are two key catalysts for the company. The company is its top pick in India Oil & Gas Coverage.

Brokerage: Citi | Rating: Neutral | Target: Raised to Rs 370 from Rs 365

Citi said that gas trading surprised positively, while transmission was slightly ahead. It prefers IGL, GSPL & Petronet LNG in the gas space.
