IREDA Hits 52 Week High. Here's Why...

Moving on to news from the finance sector, the stock price of IREDA broke out from its range bound performance and got locked at the upper circuit today.

There are two reasons behind this sudden rally.

First, the stock is gaining buyers attention due to the government's increasing emphasis on renewable energy and the company's robust financials.

Second, the chairman of the company announced the launch of IREDA's retail division, a move to broaden its lending services.

The retail division's main focus is to offer loans to participants in the PM-KUSUM scheme which offers rooftop solar projects.

Not long ago, the company disbursed its first loan in this segment, amounting to Rs 580 million (m) under the PM-KUSUM scheme.

In addition, IREDA plans to allocate 1% to 2% of assets under management from domestic pension and insurance funds into renewable energy bonds.

The stock price of the company is up by 20% today and over 41% in 2023 so far. Apart from this, the stock is up 160% from IPO price.

Why Blue Dart Share Price is Rising

Moving on to news from the logistic sector, Blue Dart share price saw a lot of traction today as it was up over 2%.

The rally in its share price came after its subsidiary company acquired two leased aircraft.

Let's look at the details...

Blue Dart Aviation, the wholly-owned subsidiary of Blue Dart, purchased two leased aircraft from DHL Aviation (Netherlands) BV for approximately Rs 400 m, as approved by the board of directors. These aircraft were already in operation under lease by Blue Dart Aviation.

Moreover, back in November 2023, Blue Dart Express announced plans for nationwide expansion with the opening of 40 new franchisees and company-owned retail outlets.

Additionally, the company disclosed a decision to implement a general price increase effective from January 2024. The increase in cost will depend on the shipping profile.

The share price of Blue Dart has rallied over 4% in a month and 13% in six months.
