Stocks like SAIL, NMDC and NALCO are buzzing from the metals space. The steel companies have increased prices by around Rs 1,000 per tonne for the month of December.
Remember, if you look at the price hikes from a three month perspective, the increase been over Rs 5,000 per tonne. Most of the gain could flow to the profitability because coking coal cost as well has seen a sharp correction of close to 20-25 percent. Iron ore price is moving up as well.
While some of non-integrated players will get hurt but companies like Tata Steel, SAIL, and JSPL will benefit from the rising iron ore prices.
