Should you buy the stock?

Brokerage firms have largely maintained their earlier mixed views on the stock after the company's Q4 result. Some of them, however, have raised their target price for the stock.

Brokerage firm JM Financial retained a buy call on the stock after the March quarter results and raised the target price to 648 from 555 earlier.

JM Financial is positive about the company's growth prospects and believes it is on track to achieve its target of 10GW and 20GW renewable energy capacity by 2025 and 2030, respectively.

"JSW Energy added/secured greenfield RE capacity of 681MW/3.4GW during FY24 taking RE locked-in capacity to 13.2 GW along with SECI’s 250MW/500MWh BESS project. It is also securing the wind energy supply chain with the signing of a technology licensing agreement with SANY Renewable Energy, China. We believe the company is right on track to achieve its target of 10GW/20GW RE capacity by 2025/2030," said JM Financial.

Kotak Institutional Equities has maintained a 'sell' call on the stock after the Q4 result but revised the fair value to 275 against 235 earlier.

"JSW Energy continues to focus on an aggressive growth path, with investments in new thermal and renewable assets, as well as storage solutions. While the plans and execution are encouraging, we believe all positives are captured in the current market price at 31 times FY26E EPS and 3 times P/B," Kotak said.
