Among other companies, TCS stands out with a growth rate of 1.3% QoQ, while competitors like Infosys and HCL Technologies see stagnant growth or even a slight sequential fall. 

With heightened interest in the estimated performance metrics, investors are ready to scrutinise the Q4 results expectations against the actual performance. That said, let’s look at Tata Consultancy Services’ performance metrics from the TCS Q4 results.

According to estimates, TCS would most likely have the highest revenue increase among Tier 1 IT organisations due to the ramp-up of the BSNL transaction. Based on their projections, TCS’s earnings for Q4 would increase by 3-5 per cent year over year (YoY). 

After news of Tata Sons’ equity sale made news in mid-March 2024, shares of Tata Consultancy Services were heavily sold. TCS’s share price history is better positioned in the large-cap IT pack thanks to increased contributions from major transactions in past years, decreased subcontract expenses, and higher utilisation throughout the staff pyramid. 

If you’re an investor with a medium- to long-term view, you should probably hang on to your blue chip stocks and add more when they decline. TCS’s share price can reach ₹4,200 to ₹4,300 in the future.

According to Jefferies, TCS may expect a sequential sales increase of 1.4% in constant currency terms.
