The Tata Group-owned IT giant Tata Consultancy Services’ (TCS) market valuation on BSE soared beyond $170 billion on Monday, holding the position of the world’s most valuable IT company for a short period. The company beat American-Irish multinational Accenture, which has a $168 billion market cap on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE).
However, the euphoria was short-lived. By afternoon trade, the stock dipped nearly 0.45% to ₹3,314 from an all-time high of ₹3,339. This brought down TCS valuation to $167 billion.
While the world’s largest IT company stint was a short one for TCS, it continues to be the largest in India.

Since March 2020, even with the coronavirus pandemic, the TCS stock has gained over 82% in value, and analysts believe that there is more room for a rally ahead. A significant spike in its share price came in the past two weeks led by the company’s strongest December quarter in at least nine years — thanks to COVID-induced acceleration in tech adoption.
According to Geojit Financials, the company’s order book continues to remain strong. Its new product offerings have seen a great response with several new client additions across platforms. It also expects TCS’s topline and profit margins to improve further from current levels in the coming quarters, as revenue is realized from the products that went live during third-quarter.
