Motilal Oswal View on TCS
Increase in interest rates, slow economic growth, and elevated geo-political tensions have impacted the macro environment and raised concerns over IT spends.
Given TCS’ size, order book, and exposure to long duration orders, and portfolio, it is well positioned to withstand the weakening macro environment and ride on the anticipated industry growth.
TCS has consistently maintained its market leadership position and shown best-in-class execution. It allows the company to maintain its industry-leading margin and demonstrate superior return ratios.
We maintain our positive stance on TCS. Our target price of Rs 3,730 implies 28x FY24E EPS, with a 14 percent upside potential. We reiterate our Buy rating.

India inflation likely held steady just above 7% in June – Reuters poll
India’s retail inflation likely held steady in June, but well above the Reserve Bank of India’s tolerance limit for a sixth month as lower fuel and cooking oil prices offset higher services and food costs, a Reuters poll found.
Despite a substantial recent increase in food prices, rising at the fastest pace in nearly two years, overall inflation was partly contained after the government cut taxes on petrol and diesel and imposed restrictions on food exports.
But most economists warned the near-term outlook was highly uncertain as a heatwave last month pushed up vegetable prices. The government has also cut estimates of wheat production because of dry spells in northern India.
The July 4-8 Reuters poll of 42 economists showed inflation as measured by the consumer price index (CPI) was steady at an annual 7.03 per cent in June, versus 7.04 per cent in May.
Forecasts for the data, due at 1200 GMT on Thursday, July 7, were in a 6.45 per cent-7.70 per cent range.

Bank of Korea to hike rates by historic 50 bps
South Korea’s central bank will deliver its first-ever 50 basis point rate rise to 2.25% on Wednesday, turning up the heat on a rate-hiking campaign as inflation tops a 24-year high and has yet to peak, a Reuters poll showed on Monday.
