TCS Buyback: The Company's Board to Review and Approve Share Repurchase in Meeting Set for October 11, 2023.
TCS Share Price Surges Following Announcement of Buyback Proposal in Board Meeting on October 11, 2023.
Shares of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) witnessed robust demand in morning trading on Monday after the company unveiled its buyback plan. TCS shares opened positively and reached an intraday high of ₹3,679 per share on NSE, marking a new 52-week high.
Market analysts attribute this surge in TCS shares to the recent exchange filing by the Indian IT giant.

They believe that the chart patterns indicate a bullish trend for TCS shares, with the potential to reach levels around ₹3,800 per share in the near term.
Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities, explained the rise in TCS share price, saying, “The announcement of the share buyback is driving the increase in TCS share price. While the exact buyback price has not been disclosed yet, the market anticipates it to be in the range of ₹4,300 to ₹4,500 per share. The market expects the TCS buyback size to be approximately ₹18,000 crore.
