NTPC share price was up 3 percent intraday on October 27 after research firm CLSA maintained a ‘buy’ call on the stock with a target of Rs 140 per share.
The research firm is of the view that the company’s portfolio mix augurs well for healthy margin growth, according to a CNBC-TV18 report.
The company sees opex normalising from Q4 FY21 onwards, adding that improving exports sales outlook ex-US should drive margin expansion. The brokerage firm has raised FY21-23 EPS estimates by 1-3 percent.
