Today, a buy call was initiated in Vedanta Ltd, for the Mobile Group at Rs.103 and for the Web Group at Rs.104. The scrip today made an intra-day high of Rs.105.95 before closing at Rs.105.05. What is the target of the scrip? Anyway, recently, there were some media reports that Vedanta Ltd is expecting its iron ore exports from the state of Goa to be much higher than its permitted mining capacity of 5.5 million tonnes in the fiscal year to March, as it bids for ore in government-run auctions. The natural resources conglomerate said in a statement yesterday, that its iron ore division shipped its first cargo of iron ore, after resuming mining operations in August in Goa. Iron ore mining was banned in the state of Goa since late 2012 amid allegations of rampant illegal mining and environment damage. The ban was eventually lifted but with an upper limit of 20 million tonnes late last year with an aim to preserve the resource for future generations. It is pertinent to mention here that, the brokerage house Emkay Global Financial Services, in its research report dated June 15, 2015 gave a buy rating on the scrip, with a target price of Rs 235.
