Buy Tata Motors in the range of Rs. 135.00-142.00 for target price of Rs. 172.00 with a stop loss of Rs. 124.00. Time Frame: Six months
The auto sector has undergone a healthy base formation after witnessing a sharp up move during March-August. The past two month's consolidation in Tata Motors has taken a shape of a 'Symmetrical Triangle' pattern. Currently, stocks logged a resolute breakout from this triangulation pattern, indicating conclusion of secondary phase. In turn, this augurs well for acceleration of primary up trend. Hence, it offers a fresh entry opportunity to ride the next leg of the up move
The stock has taken more than seven weeks to completely retrace the preceding two week's sharp up move (Rs. 120-155). A slower pace of retracement above its 52 weeks EMA placed at Rs. 130, signifies robust price structure and higher base formation
The stock formed a strong demand zone around Rs. 124. We expect it to hold, going forward, as it is confluence of lower band of contracting triangle at Rs. 124 coinciding with September low of Rs. 122
In a nutshell, we expect the stock to resume its primary up trend and head towards Rs. 172 as it is the 80% retracement of the CY20 decline (Rs. 202-64) around Rs. 174
- Tata Motors (TML) is the market leader in the domestic CV space, commanding ~42% market share as of FY20, with significant presence across M&HCV as well as LCV segments. Domestic CV industry has been a clear laggard since FY20 (~18 months of muted performance) amid a host of demand and supply side issues, however incremental outlook is now turning positive (ex-buses), with cyclical bottom for the key truck segment now in sight. TML is also present in all segments of PVs domestically, where its revamped product portfolio and new launches (Altroz and Harrier) have been performing strongly - leading to 310 bps market share improvement to 7.9% as of H1FY21. TML would be carving out PV (including EV) into a new subsidiary to enable greater focus on the vertical, showcasing its serious intent for the space domestically. The company aims to assume a leadership role in the sunrise Indian EV space (Nexon EV has 61% market share)

- For Q2FY21, TML posted strong margin performance (12.5%, highest in four quarters) riding on return to double digit margin trajectory in JLR (11.1%) and 2.9% India margins (including breakeven in PV operations).
