Wipro share price touched a 52-week high of Rs 722.80, rising more than 7 percent in the early trade on October 14 after the company announced its September quarter earnings on October 13.
Wipro reported a consolidated net profit of Rs 2,930.7 crore for the quarter ended September 2021, thus registering a decline of 9.6 percent due to contraction in margins after wage hike and amortisation charge on Capco acquisition.
However, the profit grew by 18.9 percent compared to the corresponding quarter last fiscal.
Gross revenue increased 7.8 percent sequentially to Rs 19,760.7 crore during the period, and 30.1 percent year-on-year (YoY).
IT services operating margin for the September 2021 quarter was at 17.8 percent, a decline of 104 bps as compared to the previous quarter, and fell 140 bps YoY.

Here is what foreign brokerages have to say about the stock and the company post September quarter earnings:
UBS | Rating: Neutral | Target: Rs 660
The Q2 revenue & Q3 guidance is in-line, while lower TCV offsets margin beat.
Given in-line guidance & lower TCV, UBS expect a muted reaction to the stock.
Macquarie | Rating: Outperform | Target: Raised to Rs 780
Macquarie kept outperform rating as strong execution led to a revenue beat in Q2.
The deal wins remain healthy with USD 580 million of wins in Q2 and raise FY22-24 EPS estimates by 2-3 percent, said Macquarie.
JPMorgan | Rating: Neutral | Target: Rs 670
JPMorgan raises revenue by 1% over FY22-24 but maintain margin over FY23-24.
The lack of sustained performance history & dropping large deals keep us conservative and full valuation of 29x keeps us neutral.
