Angel Broking on RIL

"Reliance Industries stock has been on a tear and hit an all time high today ever since the announcement of investment of 7,500 crore by Silver Lake in Reliance Retail Ventures Ltd. yesterday, valuing the retail business at 4.21 lakh crore which is at the higher end of market expectations...We expect the company to attract further investments in the retail business from other investors which is leading to another round of rerating for the company. We remain positive on Reliance industries Ltd. and expect that the digital and the retail business will be the future growth drivers for the company. Further investments in the retail business and scaling up of Jio Mart business will be key triggers for the company in the near future. Listing of the digital and retail business over the next few years would also lead to significant value unlocking for shareholders in the long run. We continue to maintain our buy rating on reliance Industries with a target of 2,366," Jyoti Roy, DVP equity strategist, Angel Broking.

"...Now, the immediate supports for the index are placed at 11185 and 11130. The way some of the stocks showed momentum in the last hour of the trade (on Wednesday), we could see some bounce from the support of the above mentioned pattern. Hence, although we have been advising a sign of caution since last few days, one should now look for stock specific buying opportunities from a momentum trading perspective and avoid forming short positions. The immediate resistances are around 11360 and 11450."
