Vodafone Idea share price target

On the outlook for Vodafone Idea shares, Sumeet Bagadia, Executive Director at Choice Broking said, "Vodafone Idea shares are on the cusp of a fresh breakout at 14.30 apiece. If the stock gives a breakout above 14.30 apiece on a closing basis, then we can expect Vodafone Idea shares to touch 17 to 18 apiece levels in the short term. Hence, Vodafone Idea shareholders are advised to maintain a stop loss at 11 till the stock is below 14.50. Once Vodafone shares closed above 14.30 per share level, one should upgrade the stop loss at 12.50 apiece and wait for the short-term, target of 17 to 18 apiece level."
