Bank of America-Merrill Lynch upgraded Tata Motors to ‘buy’ from ‘neutral’ and raises its target price to Rs 360 from Rs 285.
BofA-Merrill expects Tata’s key unit Jaguar Land Rover would meet full-year sales expectations of 363,000 units and sustain momentum.
At home, the investment bank said Tata’s truck/bus unit is closer to a trough, while light commercial vehicles are “growing ahead of peers” and the utility vehicles segment is benefitting from a structural uptrend.
The domestic cars unit may not recover, Bank of America-Merrill Lynch added, but said lowered expectations have been built into forecasts.
Shares in Tata Motors were last up 0.4 percent at Rs 317.
