There is buying opportunity in Infosys stock price after it has corrected sharply post Q4 numbers.

IT-giant Infosys stock price has corrected sharply since last month after feeble quarter earnings and concerns rising over the impact of the US and Europe banking crisis on the company. However, Vaishali Parekh believes that Infosys stock price has made decent erosion and indicated a consolidation as well. On Tuesday, the stock has gained by half a percent. But the key factor here is that Infosys has maintained above 1,200 levels.

On BSE, Infosys stock ended at 1,270.60 apiece up by 4.35 or 0.34%. The stock was near the day's high of 1,272 apiece.

Infosys is among the top five Indian companies in terms of market share. Its market cap as of May 9, 2023, stood over 5.27 lakh crore.

In March 2023 quarter, the tech major posted a consolidated PAT of 6,128 crore down by nearly 16% QoQ but up by nearly 6% YoY. Similarly, revenue from operations dipped by 2.2% QoQ but was higher by 16% YoY to 37,441 crore in the quarter. Also, Q4 year-on-year growth was 8.8% and the sequential decline was 3.2% in constant currency terms.

Further, the operating margin for the quarter was 21.0%. Free cash flow conversion was 95.3% for Q4. Continuing the recent trend, attrition declined further in Q4 to 20.9%. Infosys reduced its workforce by 3,611 employees to 3,43,234 headcount as of March 31, 2023.

Post the result, Infosys stock price has seen major erosions in stock price. Its monthly drop is nearly 11% on BSE, while the half-year (6 months) plunge is around 15.4%. Year-to-date, the stock is down by 16.6% to date. In a year, the downside is, even more, larger by 18.2%.

This makes Infosys stock price cheaper for more buying.

In a note dated May 9, Vaishali Parekh, Vice President - Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher said, "The stock has witnessed a decent erosion recently and has indicated consolidation with support maintained near 1220."

She added, "Currently with the stock picking up gradually and with a move past the 1280 zone would further strengthen the bias to anticipate for an upward move in the coming days. "

Thereby, Parekh's note said, "With the RSI indicator showing significant pullback from the highly oversold zone has improved the bias to some extent. With the chart looking attractive, further rise is anticipated and we suggest to buy this stock for an upside target of 1420 keeping a stop loss of 1200."

The Prabhudas Lilladher expert sees a nearly 12% upside in Infosys stock price ahead.
