As Patel Engineering share price today is 59.50 per share, the brokerage is expecting around 15 per cent upside in the scrip.

“Patel Engineering recently experiencing a significant downturn, is currently hovering around the 56 mark, closely mirroring its 200- day Simple Moving Average (SMA). Despite a recent reversal from a bullish bat pattern, the stock has entered a corrective phase over the past 4-5 trading sessions," said the brokerage firm in its report.

Over the past six months, the stock has seen an increase of more than 16.67 per cent, and over the course of the last year, it has surged by a remarkable 288.89 per cent, on the National Stock Exchange (NSE).

On its advice to the stock market investors in regard to Patel Engineering shares, Anand Rathi's technical report further said, “Interestingly, during this correction, the size of the downward candles has been relatively small, suggesting a potential alleviation of selling pressure. Consequently, there appears to be an opportunity for investors to BUY within the range of 56-58, with an upside target of 66. A prudent approach would involve setting a stop-loss at around 53, based on daily closing prices, to mitigate potential losses."
