Orient Cement posts strong Q1

Shares of Odisha based cement maker rose 3.3% today and closed at their highest level in over three years. For the June quarter, the cement maker reported a massive 249% YoY jump in net profit to₹89 crore. The strong profit growth was supported by a 68% rise in revenue from operations to ₹691 crore.

In its annual report, the company had said that the cement industry is expected to witness volume growth due to demand revival in infrastructure and urban housing segments. However, the industry’s need to improve operating leverage with a focus on improving capacity utilisation is likely to limit price improvement.

VA Tech bags large order

The water technology player has bagged an order worth₹1,230 crore from Russia-based Amur Gas Chemical Complex. This is the company’s largest order from the oil and gas sector.

It will be a technology and system integrator for the wastewater treatment unit. As of March 2021, the company’s order book stood at ₹9,500 crore, about three times its FY21 revenue. Meanwhile, shares of VA Tech Wabag were down 1.9% today.

Tata Motors hikes PV prices

The leading auto manufacturer announced that it willhike prices of its passenger vehicles (PVs) from 3 August 2021. It will raise prices by 0.8% on average depending on variant and model.

Recently, the company had mentioned that it plans to raise prices of PVs to offset the steep rise in cost of inputs like steel and precious metals. In July, auto major Maruti Suzuki had also raised prices of some models to offset higher input costs. Shares of Tata Motors were up 2.2% today, while those of Maruti Suzuki closed 1.6% higher.

Closing bell

Today, the benchmark indices broke out of the two-month long consolidation and hit record highs. There was a broad-based participation from the index stocks. However, it seemed that midcap and smallcap stocks didn’t join the rally. The Nifty Midcap 100 index was flat, while the Smallcap 100 index declined. Further, the cues from major international equity indices were a mixed bag. Thus, it becomes important to see whether the market momentum sustains or the indices again fall back into the consolidation range.
