We expect the Indian IT companies to report another quarter of flattish revenue growth, while margins might see some improvement on a sequential basis. We expect revenue growth of our coverage universe to be in the range of - 2% to +1% in organic CC terms for the top 5 and -2.0% to +3.0% for midcaps. We expect most companies to maintain revenue growth guidance for FY24, the brokerage said.

TCS Q1 Results Live: TCS best positioned to benefit from long-term structural tailwinds in Tech Services, says Motilal Oswal

TCS remains best positioned to benefit from long-term structural tailwinds in Tech Services and should see a relative pick-up in growth, aided by clients’ focus on cost optimization and efficiencies, said Motilal Oswal Financial Services. 

HCL Technologies is one of the key beneficiaries of Cloud adoption at scale, given its expertise in IMS. We expect Infosys to be a key beneficiary of the acceleration in IT spending in the medium term, it added.

With valuations correcting meaningfully over the last one year (IT services sector P/E at 21.1x, down 24% from the peak), we maintain our positive stance on the IT Services sector, supported by a favorable medium- to long-term demand outlook, despite some near-term pain.  

We continue to prefer Tier-I players over their Tier-II counterparts, given the former’s attractive valuations, increased traction in vendor consolidation, and diversified client portfolios, the brokerage firm said.

TCS Q1 Results Live: IT major to deliver mixed results, all negatives factored in, says Avinash Gorakshakar

TCS Q1 results are likely to be weak with no major negative surprises. However, the management’s commentary on order inflows and attrition rate will be keenly watched, said Avinash Gorakshakar, Director Research, Profitmart Securities.

He said that the market will not like any huge margin pressure in Q1, but believes that all the negatives are factored in the stock price. Gorakshakar expects that TCS stock may not go below the 3,000-level.

Moreover, any announcement on share buyback will be a key short term trigger for TCS stock.

TCS Q1 Results Live: Kumar Rakesh, Analyst IT & Auto at BNP Paribas 

TCS management continues to see no major change in overall tech spending and demand, though some discretionary projects are being deferred. TCS is witnessing no large technology budget cuts and banks continuing to push ahead with transformation programmes. As highlighted in “IT’s showtime", we see deal-win data as the key metric to judge the demand environment, which seems robust.

In 4QFY23, deal-win TCV (USD10b, book-to-bill: 1.4x) was strong, with a solid deal pipeline and accelerated deal velocity, especially in Europe. With supply-side issues easing and confidence in long-term cost structures, TCS aspires to get EBIT margin back to 26-28%.

Given the heightened uncertainty at Infosys, we think TCS is better positioned to benefit from the shift in customers’ focus to cost-optimization deals and it is our sector top pick. The positive catalysts for BUY-rated stocks are favourable enterprise IT budget decisions, increasing focus on cost reduction, continued acceleration in digital adoption, and traction in generative AI tools and solutions. Hence, we have set a target price of 4,050 for TCS.

According to stock market experts, after lower-than-expected fourth quarter growth guidance by Accenture, IT segment in India is expected to remain in base building mode for next one to two quarters and in that case positional investors are expected to start accumulating their preferred IT stocks.

TCS Q1 Results Live: HDFC Securities cuts IT sector earnings estimates by ~1%

HDFC Securities cust earnings estimates for the IT sector by ~1%, largely due to a lower near term growth trajectory and rollover valuations to Jun-25. It has factored IT sector growth to moderate to 5% in FY24E before recovering to 9% in FY25E. Mid-tier IT growth premium of >500 bps is likely to continue, which is also reflected in the divergence between the trend of earnings estimate.

Nifty IT index valuations have fallen by 5% YTD, while Accenture’s valuations are up by >10% YTD (which has historically been highly correlated). IT sector valuations (at 21.5x) are between 5Y and 10Y averages and earnings are expected to grow at 11% CAGR over FY23- 25E.

TCS Q1 Results Live: Vinod TP, Research analyst at Geojit Financial Services

Due to macroeconomic challenges in the BFSI and Hi-tech sectors, delayed discretionary spending, it is likely that revenue growth will soften during this quarter. Still, cloud computing, digitalization, artificial intelligence, and cybersecurity are the key drivers for revenue in the current challenging circumstances. Recent data suggests that the U.S. technology sector foresees a slowdown in CY23-24 guidance due to drop in deal conversion rate. 

During this challenging period, Indian IT companies are focused on enhancing margins through cost optimization and resolving supply-side issues. Looking ahead, we expect higher deal conversion at the start of H2FY24, which will improve revenue visibility. 

On the valuation front, over the past 1.5 years, the industry valuations have been corrected by more than a third, limiting the downside risk. Going forward, it presents an opportunity for long-term investors to accumulate in the IT sector.
