The Dow Jones gained 0.7% while the Nasdaq Composite zoomed 1.9%.

Back home, Indian share markets have opened on a strong note. Riding on positive global momentum, benchmark indices advanced over 1% in early trade.

The supply of coal to the power sector during the last month also increased 21.7% to 47.67 MT, over 39.17 MT in the year-ago period.

Coal India accounts for over 80% of the domestic coal output.

The company, which is eyeing one bn tonne of fuel output by 2023-24, will pump over Rs 1.22 lakh crore in projects related to coal evacuation, exploration and clean coal technologies by 2023-24.

This investment of Rs 1.22 lakh crore will be utilised to fund a total of 500 projects.

Moving on to news from the defence sector, state-run Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) will manufacture four light utility helicopters (LUHs) under limited series production by 2022-23, according to the government.

Minister of State for Defence Ajay Bhatt, replying to a question in Rajya Sabha on Monday, also said that another eight LUHs will be built by 2023-24.

This would be followed by the manufacture of series production (SP) of the helicopters by HAL.

Note that the defence ministry had approved the procurement of 12 LUH from the HAL for around Rs 15 bn earlier this month.

The LUH is designed and developed as a replacement for ageing fleets of Cheetah and Chetak helicopters being operated by the armed forces.

Indigenously-developed LUH is a new generation helicopter in the 3-tonne category that has state-of-the-art technology features like a glass cockpit with multi-function displays (MFD) and is powered by a single turboshaft engine.

Hindustan Aeronautics share price is currently trading up by 0.7%.

There is a new paradigm shift currently unfolding across the global economic landscape...

Here's what we wrote about it in one of the editions of Profit Hunter:

  • If you look at the chart closely, you will realise it is likely to remain among the top spenders in the coming years.

    It's because of the second largest spender shown in the chart, China.

    With rising tensions between the two countries, the incentive is strong for India to keep up with China.

    It all makes sense for the government to focus on this sector in a big way in the near future.

    The government's 'Atmanirbhar' push will get a massive boost through local defence manufacturing. This will create profitable opportunities in defence stocks for astute investors.

Co-head of Research at Equitymaster, Tanushree Banerjee keeps a close watch on stocks in the defence space. As per Tanushree, defence will be a big wealth-creating opportunity.

Back in July 2021, she recorded a video about India's best drone stocks.
