Here is what foreign brokerages have to say about the stock and the company after the September quarter numbers:

Close

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

UBS has a “sell” rating, saying top client growth and slower TCV could raise some concerns.

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.

The efforts to improve client metrics continued with growth in large accounts. Macquarie raised FY22-24 EPS estimates by 5-7 percent.

At 0918 hours, Mindtree was quoting at Rs 4,799.55, up Rs 436.30, or 10 percent, on the BSE.
