According to the brokerage the company projected a soft near-term outlook but a strong order book and a supportive valuation.

JPMorgan on RIL: Overweight| Target Rs 3015
JPMOrgan maintained its overweight stance on RIL with a target price of Rs 3015 which translates into an upside of over 20% from Rs 2467 recorded on January 13, 2023.

“RIL is trading at the lower end of its recent trading range which makes it more attractive,” it said.
