The company's Board of Directors has proposed a final dividend of 5/- per share for the fiscal year 2021-22, subject to shareholder approval. So, should one buy the stock right now? Let's see what different brokerage firms have to say.

The brokerage firm Prabhudas Lilladher has said in a note that Oil India is well placed to benefit from rising oil and gas prices and high GRMs and FY25E EBIDTA can increase to Rs210bn (FY22-Rs105bn) on higher volumes. The brokerage has maintained a buy rating on the stock with a target price of 344 per share.

The brokerage company Sharekhan has said in a report that “The recent sharp surge in crude oil prices and expectation of further steep hike in domestic gas prices from October 2022 would drive an 11% CAGR in OIL’s standalone PAT over FY2022-FY2024E and improve RoE to 14.3%. Moreover, the recent stake increase in Numaligarh Refinery Ltd (NRL) could create long-term value for OIL. Hence, we maintain a Buy rating with an unchanged SoTP-based PT of Rs. 290."
