Avoid Paytm Stocks Until There Is Clarity About Profit Generation

Likhita Chepa, Senior Research Analyst at CapitalVia Global Research, advised investors to stay away from the Paytm stock as there is no clarity on when the company could start generating profits. Also, with increasing competition, it will be difficult for the company to make a profit at this time. “It has been observed that the company’s losses have increased and it seems that the company can no longer see its way back. RBI has also ordered Paytm to stop boarding new customers, which has also severely affected its already-defeated inventory,” Chepa added.
