Sharekhan has given Hold recommendation for Wipro with a target price of Rs. 750 in its research report issued on Jan 13, 2022
Sharekhan’s research report on Wipro
Q3FY22 revenue growth lagged our expectations, while IT services’ EBIT margin met our expectations. Net headcount additions, client mining and deal pipeline stayed strong, but attrition continued to inch up. The management guided for revenue growth of 2-4% q-o-q for Q4FY2022, as we expected, led by broad-based demand. Organic growth is estimated at a decent 1.4-3.4% q-o-q. Supply-side challenges, skill-based premium, amortisation expense of intangibles from recent acquisitions, increasing discretionary expenses, and investments in frontline sales to weigh on its margins in the near term. The management expects to maintain EBIT margin in a narrow band of 17-17.5% for FY2022.
Though Wipro is progressing well in its turnaround journey, we believe a valuation of 23x FY2024E factors in the growth potential. Hence, we maintain a Hold on Wipro with an unchanged PT of Rs. 750.
