Motilal Oswal Financial Services Ltd (NS: MOFS ) has given the stock a target of Rs 205 for GAIL. It has revised upwards its earnings by around 15% and says GAIL is its top pick in the large-cap category.

Goldman Sachs (NYSE: GS ) has given GAIL a target of Rs 195. It expects gas prices to go up to $2 per mmbtu in FY22 and up to $3.8 in FY23. This should give a solid boost to GAIL stock.
ICICI Securities has given GAIL a target of Rs 184. The biggest risk for GAIL would be a fall in oil prices according to brokerages.
