Here is what brokerages have to say about the stock and company after earnings:

Goldman Sachs

The research firm Goldman Sachs has kept a neutral rating on the stock with a target at Rs 3,744 per share.

The results were in line with strong demand outlook intact, but the broking firm lowered EPS (earnings per share) estimates by 2-3% over FY23-26.

It forecast 23/13% dollar revenue growth for FY23E/24 and margin at 20%.


The brokerage house has maintained a neutral rating on the stock with a target at Rs 4,320.

Robust growth continued and headcount signals that it will go on.

Client metrics are headed in the right direction, but deal wins continue to be sluggish, while growth is coming from smaller projects.

Morgan Stanley

The research house has kept an equal-weight rating and cut the target price from Rs 5,100 to 4,450 per share.

The results were in line with constructive management commentary.

Despite volatile macro, street EPS estimates appear achievable.

Prabhudas Lilladher

“Our EPS estimates remain largely unchanged. Our DCF based target price of Rs 4,778 (earlier Rs 5157) with implied earnings target multiple of 35x on FY24 EPS (earlier 38x) factors increase in risk free rate to 7.2% (earlier 6.8%) and moderation in terminal growth rate.

“Mindtree is currently trading at 34x/29x on earnings of Rs 116/135 for FY23/24 respectively with revenue/EPS compound annual growth of 17/16% for FY22-24E. Maintain buy.”

Motilal Oswal

“The management’s increased focus on annuity revenue and strategic accounts is reflected in its revenue and client mix.

“A strong outlook on strategic accounts, decent deal signings, and the ability to sustain improved margin are key positives.

“The stock is currently trading at 28x FY24E EPS. As the key positives are already captured, we see limited upside hereafter. Our target price of Rs 4,230 per share implies 30x FY24E EPS. We maintain our neutral rating.”

YES Securities

“We maintain add rating on the stock with a revised target price of Rs 4507, valuing the stock at 34x on FY24E EPS.

“We have cut down our target PE multiple from 41x to 34x to account for higher cost of capital going ahead. The stock trades at PER of 29.9x on FY24E EPS.”

At 09:18 hrs Mindtree was quoting at Rs 3,945.15, down Rs 15.65 or 0.40 percent on the BSE.
