Meanwhile, Ventura Securities value AEL on a SOTP basis for a price target of Rs 5,999 per share and recommend a BUY over the next 24 months, the brokerage firm said.

The turbulence in the energy market (post the Russia-Ukraine war) and climate change issues have necessitated a rapid switch to alternative clean fuel sources. Green H2 has the most potential and Adani has made rapid progress to harness this opportunity.

Adani has put in place a green energy platform Adani New Energy Ltd (ANIL), which is end-to-end self sufficient providing fuel security and is expected to start production (0.29 MTPA) from early FY26 scaling to 3.0 MTPA by FY30 (79.1 per cent CAGR).

“We believe that ANIL’s platform design can be utilized to execute similar projects in other renewable rich geographies (of the Middle East, North Africa and Central America) while using the existing spare capacity for manufacture of solar panels and WTG,” the brokerage firm said.

Technical View

Bias: Negative

Target: Rs 3,020; Rs 2,930

Support: Rs 3,310

Resistance: Rs 3,680

After an astounding rally of 138 per cent from March 2022 to mid-December, shares of Adani Enterprises seem to have a corrective phase.

The stock is seen trading with a negative bias, both, on the daily and the weekly chart. As per the daily chart, the stock is currently placed fairly below the 20-DMA (Daily Moving Average), 50-DMA and 100-DMA placed at Rs 3,729, Rs 3,882 and Rs 3,672, respectively.

The stock seems on course to test the 200-DMA, indicating a downside target of Rs 3,020. In case of a 50 per cent retracement of the previous rally, the stock can dip to its next target of Rs 2,930.

Meanwhile, the bias is likely to remain negative as long as the stock trades blow Rs 3,680.
