Analyst Insights on Adani Power’s Prospects:
- Abhijeet from Tips2trades: Abhijeet highlighted that “Technically, Rs 390 is a strong resistance on the Daily charts. Investors should consider buying only if there is a dip close to the support of Rs 309.”
- Vaishali Parekh, AVP, Prabhudas Lilladher: Vaishali pointed out that “Adani Power has rallied decently but faced resistance near the Rs 409 level and has subsequently pulled back slightly with near-term support at Rs 360 levels. The overall trend remains strong, and we expect further gains after a short consolidation.”

She recommended setting a stop loss at Rs 360. Mileen added, “On the daily chart of Adani Power, we are observing a lower top lower bottom formation, which is a sign of weakness. At present, immediate support is at Rs 338 level, if breached, selling pressure will intensify.”
Adani Power reported an impressive 83.25% increase in consolidated net profit for the quarter ending in June 2023, with earnings totalling Rs 8,759.42 crore compared to Rs 4,779.86 crore in the June quarter of the previous fiscal year. This boost was primarily driven by substantial other income.
