Analysts at HDFC Securities upgraded Tata Motors to 'BUY' (ADD earlier) as the brokerage firm feels OEM will benefit from an improving demand outlook, cost-cutting initiatives, and better free cash flow (FCF) generation. Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR’s) retail volumes are improving from Covid-19 lows, and system inventories are normalising. Analysts are building in double-digit volume growth at JLR over FY22/23E (12/11 per cent).
