The Nifty 50 universe has seen an approximate price target cut of 15% while individual cuts have been as high as 60% in some cases and even as low as 2% in few cases. Needless to say, banks have seen the sharpest cuts in target prices. For example, average target price for IndusInd Bank was revised down by 61%, Axis Bank by 34% and SBI by 20%. Rate sensitive auto sector is also in the same boat with Tata Motors target down by 42.5%, Maruti lower by 21% etc. Among NBFCs, Bajaj Finserv saw 12.3% cut in target price while HDFC saw a cut of 11%. Among oil companies, ONGC was a price target cut of 38% followed by IOCL at 21.24%. Pharma companies were the rare exception that saw an upward revision in target prices. Other than pharma HUL saw an upward revision of 7.6% while Nestle saw its target revised upward by 10%. However, IT companies like TCS and Infosys have seen price cuts of 12% while the cut is deeper at 20% for Wipro and Tech Mahindra.
