Here's Why Tide Water Oil Shares Are Rallying

Jun 2, 2021

Tide Water Oil shares have been rallying like the rally in the shares of Bombay Oxygen a few months ago.

The share price of Tide Water Oil has more than doubled in a matter of 15 days.

The sudden rally in Tide Water shares, a week before the company releases its quarterly and full year numbers, has come as a surprise.

In April 2021, investors had mistakenly pumped Bombay Oxygen shares, which is an NBFC.

According to the company's website, Bombay Oxygen's primary business was manufacturing and supplying of industrial gases, which was discontinued from 1 August 2019.

Back in April, shares of oxygen suppliers were in limelight amid increasing demand for oxygen following a surge in Covid-19 cases.

Due to the word 'Oxygen' in its name, Bombay Oxygen shares had surged 1.5x in less than a month.

But this time around, it's different.

Tide Water Oil shares are rallying for at least three reasons.

Reasons Behind the Rally

Bonus Issue and Stock Split: Last month, the company had said it will consider a stock split and bonus issue in the forthcoming board meeting to be held on 10 June 2021.

A company usually undergoes a stock split to make the shares more affordable for small retail investors and increase liquidity.

Dividend: The company had said its board of directors will consider the audited financial results of the company for the quarter and year ended March 2021 and will also consider recommendation of final dividend for the financial year 2020-21.

Tide Water Oil has a consistent track record when it comes to paying dividend, as can be seen from the chart below.

So far in financial year 2020-21, the company has already paid Rs 100 per share in the form of dividend.

Heavy Volumes: Stock of the company is hitting back to back record highs for the past few days.

The stock is locked in a fifth consecutive upper circuit limit today backed by heavy volumes.
