Research firm Morgan Stanley has kept an overweight call on DLF with a target at Rs 470 per share.

The company has launched its luxury housing project ‘one midtown’ in West Delhi. The project is a 50:50 joint development with the sovereign fund, GIC.

It estimates Rs 4,200-4,500 crore revenue potential from the West Delhi project, however, channel checks suggest that the customer response has been good.

Shares of PVR and Inox Leisure, the biggest operators of movie theatres in Mumbai, rose nearly 4 percent and 2 percent, respectively, after a member of the Maharashtra COVID-19 task force said that the surge in daily cases in the city was likely flattening.

Mumbai reported 13,648 cases on Monday, a sharp drop from the near 20,000 cases on Friday. The city is expected to report a further decline in daily COVID-19 cases today suggesting that the Omicron variant-led surge may be peaking. Analysts suggested that the peaking of cases in Mumbai is a good development for theatre-owners as it could result in the easing of restrictions that the city had placed recently to contain the virus.
