Several global analysts were left disappointed with IT giant’s results. JP Morgan maintained its ‘underweight’ rating for the stock with a price target of ₹2,700. The firm attributed the earnings miss in parts to the unexpected crisis in the US.

Nomura also maintained its ‘reduce’ rating for the stock and cut the target price from ₹2,850 to ₹2,830. The firm said the near-term outlook for the stock remains weak. CIti also maintained its ‘sell’ rating for the stock with a price target of ₹3,000. The firm noted that the company’s Q4-print was a miss on all accounts, and added that the company’s current valuation is still high.
