Buy Tata Chemicals?

The research analysts of the brokerage firm Geojit Financial Serviceshave set a target price of Rs. 1,340 for Tata Chemicals on the back of long term growth in Soda Ash demand.

“TCL has been reporting solid performance consistently despite a challenging environment. We remain optimistic about continued soda ash demand across geographies, which will boost the topline. The ongoing global soda ash shortage will further improve realisations through heightened pricing. The management expects the positive momentum to continue in the near to short term and aims to leverage digitalisation for further growth. Hence, we reiterate our BUY rating on the stock, with a revised target price of Rs. 1,340 using a target multiple of 20x P/E on FY24E adj. EPS," Geojit Financial Services stated in a note.
