Here is what foreign brokerages have to say about the stock and the company after the September quarter numbers:
Morgan Stanley | Rating: Equal-weight | Target: Raised to Rs 4,500 from Rs 4,250
Morgan Stanley has kept equal-weight rating on stronger than expected earnings.
The management commentary was constructive on revenue growth, while supply-side challenges could pressure margin in H2, it said. High valuation multiples balance risk-reward.
UBS | Rating: Sell | Target: Rs 3,550

Strong revenue would help sustain margin amid rising supply costs and continue to target profitable growth in FY22.
Goldman Sachs | Rating: Sell | Target: Rs 3,784
Goldman Sachs maintains “sell”, largely on rich valuations. Revenue and margin were above expectations despite weak order book.
The brokerage raised revenue growth assumption by 3 percent and EPS estimates by up to 3 percent over FY22-26.
Macquarie | Rating: Underperform | Target: Raised to Rs 3,900
Macquarie has retained “underperform” rating on valuations. The Q2 revenue exceeded consensus estimates, it said.
