Brokerages remain positive

Let's take a look at what top brokerages have to say about RIL stock after the Q2 earnings

Motilal Oswal Financial Services

Motilal Oswal has a buy call on the stock with a target price of 2,760.

"Using SOTP, we value the refining and petrochemical segment at 7.5 times FY25E EV/EBITDA to arrive at a valuation of 878 per share for standalone. We ascribe an equity valuation of 760 per share to RJio and 1,353 per share to Reliance Retail and 16 per share towards the new age business," said Motilal Oswal.

Motilal Oswal believes growth would be driven by the retail sector’s footprint additions and new categories, while the telecom business continues to focus on subscriber growth.

"In O2C, refining and petchem segments margins are picking up from the current levels as net capacity additions for both segments are tapering off on a YoY basis in CY24. Further, FY25 would see the full benefit from the ramped-up volumes at MJ field," said the brokerage firm.

Kotak Institutional Equities

Kotak upgraded the stock to a 'buy' from an 'add' and raised the target price to 2,725 from 2,600 earlier.

The brokerage firm pointed out that RIL’s Q2 consolidated EBITDA was ahead of its estimate.

"We revise our fair value (target price) upwards to 2,725 on an increase in contribution from R-Jio (nearly 49 per share EV accretion from FWA launch), Retail (higher EBITDA) and also roll-forward of valuations to Sep 2025 (earlier Jun 2025)," said Kotak.

The brokerage firm underscored that the outlook for each of RIL’s key segments remains robust.

"With R-Jio’s pan-India 5G rollout near completion, we believe capex intensity should decline and focus will shift towards 5G monetization. The recent Jio AirFiber (FWA) launch is the first step towards 5G monetization and with a rising subscriber base and consumer engagement on 5G, we believe there is a case to raise tariffs soon. With a nearly 15 per cent decline since the recent July 2023 peak, risk-reward seems more attractive," said Kotak.

Emkay Global Financial Services

Emkay has a buy call on RIL stock with a target price of 2,730.

"We keep FY24-26E earnings largely unchanged. We retain our buy on RIL on the back of steady earnings outlook and peaking-out of the current capex cycle which should entail FCF generation and debt reduction. Valuations are attractive and we maintain Sep-24E target price at 2,730," said Emkay.

JM Financial

JM Financial maintained a buy call on the stock with a target price of 2,900.

"We reiterate buy on RIL with an unchanged target price of 2,900 as we believe net debt concerns are overdone, and also

because RIL has industry-leading capabilities across businesses to drive a robust 14-15 per cent earnings per share (EPS) CAGR over the next three to five years," said JM Financial.
