Here’s a look at what analysts said on outlook of the stock.

Rahul Ghose, CEO, Hedged.in said, "Tata Steel has been in a stellar uptrend for four months with the best part of the rally being the healthy corrections happening from time to time. From the fundamental perspective, the stock is currently not cheap on valuations anymore and also the company has a high debt-to-equity ratio. On the technical side, momentum is on its side and hence the stock can still move up 4 to 5%. Entry level around these levels for a 4-5% upside keeping a stop loss of Rs 151 can be done."

Shreyansh V.Shah, Research Analyst, StoxBox said, "Though Tata Steel reported substantial losses in its European operations in 9MFY24, the management has guided higher realizations and better volumes which will further improve the financials of the company on a consolidated level. With the hiving of its UK plants, the company is strategically focusing on its domestic operations where they are seeing more visibility in their topline growth. We feel the company can easily achieve the target of Rs 173." 

Abhijeet from Tips2Trades said, "Tata Steel stock price looks bullish on the daily charts with strong support at Rs 156. A daily close above the resistance of Rs 167 could lead to a target of Rs 181 in the near term."

Shiju Koothupalakkal - Technical Research Analyst, Prabhudas Lilladher said, "The stock has been in a strong rally since last more than one year making new highs and currently also breaching the previous peak level of Rs 159 has indicated a clear breakout to enter a new territory with bias maintained strong. It has been trading above the important 50EMA moving average zone and with near-term support maintained near Rs 146 levels, we anticipate the stock to rally towards its next higher targets of Rs 184 and Rs 195 levels, respectively."
