Meanwhile, as TCS results are for everyone to see, what an investor could expect from other IT sector companies as far as Q2FY22 results are concerned and which shares should be in focus, explains Zee Business senior research analyst Kushal Gupta.
He said seasonally Q2 is called strong quarter for IT sector space. "Largely D-sreet's expectation is very positive and revenue growth by top IT companies is pegged to be around 5 per cent in Q2 FY22. Overall, 4 to 7% growth is expected on QoQ ," he said.
Global IT services provider Accenture Q2 results will also act as precursor for other IT companies as we have seen that when Accenture results came last, there was good action seen in the IT space, said Kushal. We can, however, expect pressure on margin from Indian IT companies as many IT companies have announced wage hike, which will certainly impact their earnings, he said. Besides, minor cut in subcontracting and utilisation rate will also affect margins to some level, said the research analyst.
"In that case, particulary the focus should be on Infosys, Wipro and HCL Tech. MidCap IT companies are expected to perform even better, especially on revenue front. On QoQ, they can grow by 5 to 10%, while large cap IT companies are expected to grow by 4% to 7% as far as their revenues are concerned. Also, strong pipeline deals and completion of old deals would reflect in the results of the IT companies," he said.
