Choice Broking has given an "outperform" rating to Sobha Ltd for a target price of Rs 689 apiece, driven by low market inventory paving the way for launches, presence in fast-growing Tier-l cities (Bengaluru, Chennai, and Gurugram), large land parcels at historically cheap value, and reducing debt levels.
Nuvama has given a buy call on Sobha for a target price of Rs 646 apiece. The brokerage expects the sales momentum to remain healthy.
