Stock Watch: Can IDFC break the 13-year jinx?
Although IDFC Ltd is yet to reveal its Q2 FY22 results, its Q1 FY22 results were not so exciting. On a consolidated basis, IDFC Ltd reported a total income of Rs 111.6 crore in Q1 FY22 as compared to Rs 104 crore in Q1 FY21, showing growth of seven per cent. But it reported a net loss of Rs -410.3 crore in the quarter ending of June 2021 as against Rs -26.3 crore in the same quarter last year. However, in Q4 FY21 it posted a net profit of Rs 41.1 crore.
That being said, the stock has been moving in a southward direction maintaining the channel pattern for the past 13 years. At present, it is consolidating near the upper side of the channel with increased volumes.
