Among the buzzing stocks today is Tata Motors

Tata Motors has raised prices of its passenger vehicle (PV) range to maximum Rs 26,000 depending upon the variant. The new price hike has come into effect from January 22, 2021.

Tata Motors said, "Rising input costs and material costs of steel, precious metals and semiconductors have compelled the company to pass on a part of the cost to customers."

"Continuing its commitment towards customers, the company will also offer protection from the price increase to customers who have booked Tata passenger vehicles on or before January 21, 2021," Tata Motors said.

On the company's Q3FY21 results, Tata Motors said that its PV business has witnessed strong demand for its 'New Forever' range of cars & SUVs and that the segment grew by 39% year-on-year (YoY) in FY21 over FY20.

How automobile stocks perform in the coming months remains to be seen.

Moving on to news from the energy sector...

Reliance Q3FY21 Results: Profit After Tax Rises. 12% YoY

India's largest listed company Reliance Industries (RIL) reported a 12.5% year-on-year (YoY) rise in its consolidated net profit to Rs 131 billion. The oil-to-telecom conglomerate reported consolidated revenues of Rs 1,200 billion which were up 21.1% YoY. The weak topline performance of the company was attributable to the continued struggles of the refining business and retail business of the company due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"At a time when the Indian economy is poised for a confident recovery, we at Reliance are humbled that we have been able to contribute to it with our company's impressive performance in the third quarter of FY21," Chairman and Managing Director, Mukesh Ambani said.

We have delivered strong operational results during the quarter with a robust revival in O2C and retail segments, and a steady growth in our digital services business. I am proud that Reliance has employed 50,000 more people since March 2020," he added. RIL said that it created more than 50,000 new jobs during the pandemic-impacted period of April-December in its consumer businesses and last mile delivery.
