Dolat Capital said that the stock could reach 650- an upside of over 70% in a year. It said, “Paytm’s renewed focus on business growth & cost efficiency signals the right direction to revival. We have cut our FY25/FY26E revenue estimates by 8%/7% and expect profitability goals to further defer. However, we believe current market price does not factor a potential sharper recovery Q2 onwards and thus we maintain ‘Buy’ rating with Discounted cash flow (DCF) based price target of 650 (implies 2.4x on FY26E EV/Sales).”

YES Securities revised its price target to 450 on the stock and said, “After being under pressure, merchant payments business has started to grow in April and May. On the other hand, monthly transacting users, which drive consumer payments business, are down 25 per cent compared with January. April was the worst month for MTUs but this has stabilised in May. MTU growth will happen once the TPAP commencement happens."
