Tata Motors share price spiked 7 percent in the morning trade on October 6 after CLSA reiterated "buy" on the stock.
The research firm said Tata Motors can head to Rs 220. It is of the view that JLR has turned FCF positive in Q2 as retail volumes improved with Q2 retail sales broadly in-line with expectations, according to a CNBC-TV18 report.
Sequential volume recovery should lead to a strong FCF generation and deleveraging, it added.
The stock was trading at Rs 143.20, up Rs 9.30, or 6.95 percent. It has touched an intraday high of Rs 143.60 and an intraday low of Rs 135.90.
