Brokerage firm Centrum Broking is positive on Infosys and it recommended investors ‘add’ the Infomation Technology services firm’s shares to their investment portfolio. The brokerage sees the potential of about 10 per cent returns on investment. It pegged the share target price at Rs 1,633.
At the time of writing this report, the shares of Infosys were trading at Rs 1,510. Over the past one year, the shares declined over 20 per cent on a cumulative basis. “Infosys raised revenue guidance to 16-16.5 per cent constant currency revenues for FY23, while retaining operating margin guidance at 21-22 per cent. Large deal Total Contract Value (TCV) at USD 3.3 bn was the highest in eight quarters, which management attributed to higher cost optimisation projects and growing vendor consolidation,” said the brokerage in its technical report.
Meanwhile, Infosys on Thursday reported a strong October-December 2022 performance with year-on-year net profit growth of over 13 per cent. The net profit during the quarter was Rs 6,586 crore, the company said in its earnings report. The firm’s year-on-year growth was in double digits for most business segments and geographical regions.

“As reflected in the large deals momentum, we continue to gain market share as a trusted transformation and operational partner for our clients. Our end-to-end capabilities and global scale make us a preferred choice as clients look at consolidating vendors,” Parekh added. According to Infosys’ Chief Financial Officer Nilanjan Roy, the attrition rate (among the human resources) reduced “meaningfully” during the quarter and is expected to decline further in the near term.
