Meanwhile, last week Macquarie also had upgraded Wockhardt to outperform from neutral with a revised one-year target of Rs 1700 (from Rs 410) per share. The brokerage had a cautious view on the stock for past year, awaiting better visibility by regulatory issues and future approvals but Form 483 issued by the US FDA in early 2014 on the Morton Grove US facility has now been resolved, which provides significant comfort around the sustainability of the remaining US business.


Wockhardt’s consolidated total income rose 11.8 percent (up 34.3 percent Q-o-Q) to Rs 1,382 crore during October-December quarter from Rs 1,236.4 crore in the year-ago period.


At 13:14 hrs Wockhardt was quoting at Rs 1,289.95, up Rs 54.60, or 4.42 percent on the BSE.
