GPT Healthcare share price outlook

On the strategy post-listing of GPT Healthcare share price, Prathamesh Masdekar, Research Analyst at StoxBox said, "Under the aim of building new capabilities, the company plans to adopt and focus on super specialties that are not a focus area or are available at specific hospitals. However, the company's bed occupancy rate is lower than its listed peers. The company's profitability is susceptible to the cost of medical consumables, pharmacy items, drugs, and surgical instruments. The complex nature of treatments and procedures performed at its hospitals requires it to invest in new technology and equipment from time to time, which is generally expensive. The company is yet to expand its operations successfully to other parts of India. The bed occupancy rates need to improve to reflect better in the financial performance. However, at the current juncture, we advise investors to book profits and subsequently consider investing in the company after evaluating its quarterly performance in the near term."

On why one should book profit and exit the position in GPT Healthcare shares, VLA Ambala, a SEBI registered Research Analyst and Founder of Stock Market Today said, "GPT Healthcare shareholders should note that despite a surge of 7.11% in GPT Healthcare’s revenue, its PAT declined by -6.37% in the year ending FY23, and it aims to use most of its IPO proceeds to repay debt."

Advising GPT Healthcare share allottees to book profit, Arun Kejriwal, Founder of Kejriwal Research and Investment Services said, "The stock is moving in the small 200 to 220 range as it is not facing any selling pressure from the HNI and retail investors. But, the stock has a limited probability of scaling further upside. So, I would suggest share allottees to book profit and exit."
