Asit C. Mehta is bullish on Persistent Systems and has recommended accumulate rating on the stock with a target price of Rs 521 in its December 17, 2012 research report.
"At Rs 486, the company is trading relatively closer to its fair value (i.e. closer to 10x), which is at the highest end of our midcap PE band of 6.5-10). Persistent is currently trading at 9.2x the FY13E EPS of Rs 52.6 and 9.3x the FY14E EPS of Rs 52.1. We continue to value the company at 10x the FY14E EPS and arrive at a target price of Rs 521, implying an upside of 8%. We advise investors to ACCUMULATE the stock at the current price," says Asit C. Mehta's research report.

Moreover, we believe the recent stock price correction offers attractive entry point and hence we recommend "BUY" on the stock with a price target of Rs.128 by assigning P/E multiple of 10 times to its FY14E EPS of Rs.12.8."
