HDFC Securities recommends investors to ‘add’ TCS with 10% return potential


New Delhi: A day after IT services major Tata Consultancy Services released its October-December quarter earnings, brokerage firm HDFC Securities has recommended potential investors to ‘add’ its shares to the investment portfolio.
The TCS shares are currently trading at Rs 3,265, and the brokerage firm pegged a target price of Rs 3,560, which essentially means an upside potential of about 10 per cent. “TCS delivered revenue beat and in-line operating performance in Q3FY23.
