Buy Wipro, target of Rs 325: Anand Rathi

Anand Rathi Securities has recommended a buy rating on Wipro with a target price of Rs 325 in its November 17, 2008 research report. "Wipro has built considerable scale in the IMS space (largest practice among Indian IT companies) and has been able to build on the leads. Wipro has undertaken several initiatives, such as hiring at a slower pace and focusing on internal processes, which have resulted in revenue growth overtaking volume growth. Wipro trades at 9.6x FY09 and 10.8x FY10 estimated earnings."

"We rate it a Buy with a target price of Rs 325 at a target PE multiple of 11.8x its one-year forward earnings. At our target price, the stock would trade at 7.6x EV/EBITDA our one-year forward estimates. Our DCF valuation for Wipro assumes an 8.5% risk-free rate, a 6% risk premium and a 3% terminal growth rate. The DCF-based fair value, after taking estimated growth till FY10 and 11% growth during FY10-15, is Rs 320," says Anand Rathi's research report.
