TCS hit a new high of Rs 1,871, up 1.6% on Monday, extending its Friday’s 2.7% gain the BSE after the company’s board approved a proposal to buy back up to 76 million equity shares worth about Rs 160 billion. The buyback price has been fixed at Rs 2,100 a share, a 14 per cent premium over its Friday’s closing price of Rs 1,841 market price. The promoters’ holding in the company now stands at 71.92%.

This is the second year in a row when the Mumbai-headquartered firm has decided to go ahead with a share buyback programme in a bid to return excess cash to its shareholders.

Infosys, too, hit a new high of Rs 1,291, up 0.8%, extending its previous day’s 3.3% gain on the BSE.

At 09:38 am; the S&P BSE Index up 0.1% at 13,965, hit a record high of 14,071 in intra-day trade today. On comparison, the S&P BSE Sensex was trading 0.09% lower at 35,586 points.

Thus far in the current calendar year IT index has outperformed the market by surging 24% as compared to 4.6% rise in the benchmark index.

Sharekhan maintain Buy rating on TCS with a revised price target of Rs 2,100. “Upgrade in price target can be attributed to healthy growth outlook for the digital business, driven by recent deal wins and benefits from rupee depreciation.
