Here’s a look at what analysts said about the outlook of the Adani Power stock.  
Abhijeet from Tips2trade said,” Rs 212 will be a strong resistance for Adani Power on the Daily charts. Investors can buy in small quantities only if close is above mentioned resistance. Next supports will be at Rs 174.6 &  Rs 161.5 on the Daily charts.” 
Vaishali Parekh, Vice President – Technical Research, Prabhudas Lilladher said, “The stock has eroded drastically in the last 5 months with the selling pressure intensifying in the last 2-3 weeks and with a series of lower circuits visible on the daily chart, technically the chart pattern has turned out to be erratic. In spite of being one of the cheapest Adani stocks, this stock movement is now event based and traders and investors can take decision at their own risks.”
Ajit Mishra, VP – Technical Research, Religare Broking said, “While select stocks from the Adani group are witnessing some recovery after a sharp sell-off, we feel it’s prudent to avoid fresh exposure until the pack stabilises. For Adani Power, the tone is still negative so traders should refrain from taking any positions. On the downside, 140-155 zone could offer some support.”
Aamar Deo Singh, head, Advisory, Angel One said, “Adani Group stocks have been hammered significantly, post the release of the Hindenburg report, and even today, the stocks are in sell-off mode. It is best advisable to stay away for sometime, till we see the stocks consolidating, and the negative news flows abating. Adani Power is also in a clear downtrend, having crucial support around the  Rs 170-180 mark, & resistance around the  Rs 220 mark, stock having losing almost 40% this year alone.”
