This is the opinion of experts regarding IT industry and TCS
- According to analysts, IT stocks have performed well this month in August 2021. This is mainly due to increasing digitization and consequent cost reduction and the prospects of improving financial results in the coming quarters. However, according to Tips2Trade co-founder and trainer AR Ramachandran, technically TCS shares are looking overbought and investors should book profits at current levels. According to Ramachandran, this stock can be entered again at a price of Rs 3395-3440.

- According to Ashis Biswas, Head of Research, CapitalVia Global Research, TCS has been the best performer in the continuous growth of the IT industry and is less affected by the corona epidemic due to healthy revenue growth, stable margins and strong order bookings, apart from work from home. . Biswas believes that the growth in the IT sector will continue even further as the revenue of many companies has come down due to Corona and now they are shifting towards developing countries due to low charges. Due to this, the customer base of IT companies increased and as a result revenue also increased. According to Biswas, this pattern will continue even further as companies across the world are getting better jobs at less cost.
