Bharti Airtel has been gaining for the last two days, rising 4 percent during the period. The stock is trading higher than the 5, 20, 50, 100 and 200-day moving averages.

An upbeat commentary from brokerage firms after the tariff hike announcement and robust subscriber data pushed Bharti Airtel's stock slightly above the flatline in early trade on Tuesday. However, selling in the overall market weighed on the stock.

The stock has been gaining for the last two days, rising 4 percent during the period. Bharti Airtel is trading higher than the 5, 20, 50, 100 and 200-day moving averages.
"Bharti Airtel has always maintained that its mobile Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) needed to be at Rs 200 and ultimately at Rs 300, so as to provide a reasonable return on capital that allows for a financially healthy business model," the company said in a statement.
"We also believe that this level of ARPU will enable the substantial investments required in networks and spectrum. Even more important, this will give Airtel the elbow room to roll out 5G in India," it said.
Citi, CLSA and Jefferies have recommended buying the stock.
Citi said that the 20-25 percent tariff hike announced is ahead of its expectations.
JP Morgan said that the tariff hike will drive an 18 percent increase in ARPU and revenue, while maintaining its ‘overweight’ stance on the stock.
