Reliance Jio’s positioning in the digital ecosystem, Reliance Retail's aggressive store network expansion, the potential of oil-to-chemical (O2C) business to be segregated into a separate entity and the company’s upcoming investments in new energy initiatives were likely to trigger these future price performance, as per ICICI Direct.

We initiate coverage on the stock with a HOLD recommendation,” the report reads.
