Our View: Infosys reported a subdued 4QFY22 performance. Revenue, as well as margins, were below our expectations. Considering the industry-leading double-digit revenue growth, rising share of digital business (58.5% of revenue), elevated EBIT margin levels vs. pre-Covid levels, and a consistent capital allocation policy, we have a BUY recommendation at present with a 1-Yr target price of Rs2,250, valuing the stock at 30x FY24E earnings.
