Brightcom Group Shares Locked In 5% Upper Circuit After 12 Days Of Losses

Shares of Brightcom Group Ltd. snapped a 12-day losing streak and rose today to hit 5% upper band at Rs 13.85 apiece.

In the previous 12 days, the stock lost 84%.

The stock has been continuously declining since Securities and Exchange Board of India on Aug 22 barred the company’s chairman and managing director, chief financial officer, and 22 others, for alleged breach of its regulations on prohibition of fraudulent and unfair trade practices.

SEBI noted that the company had wrongly claimed to have received the full amount of Rs 868 crore from allottees in four issues of shares and warrants on a preferential basis during 2020-22.

This was followed by the Enforcement Directorate conducting searches at offices of Brightcom

Group and residences of its top officials and auditors. Thereafter, M. Suresh Reddy resigned as the company’s chairman and managing director, while Narayana Raju left the post of chief financial officer.

The scrip rose as much as 4.92% to Rs 13.85 per share as of 11:15 a.m., in comparison with 0.12% advance in the NSE Nifty 50.

The stock has fallen 52.9% on a year-to-date basis. Total traded volume so far in the day stood at 8.2 times its 30-day average. The relative strength index was at 22, implying that the stock maybe oversold. Bloomberg covers no analyst tracking the company.

L&T Hits Record High After Bagging A Likely Order Worth Rs 32,400 Crore From Saudi Aramco
Larsen & Toubro Ltd. has likely won contracts worth Rs 32,400 crore from Saudi Aramco for Phase II of the Jafurah unconventional gas development, according to media report.

Company’s market cap crossed Rs 4 lakh crore to hit Rs 4,06,26,762.04 lakh as of 9:42 a.m. on Friday. L&T has not commented on the development.

According to a Morgan Stanley Sept. 7 note, the award is for two packages.

Gas processing plant along with main process units ($2.9 billion)

Gas compression units ($1 billion).

This order would account for 13% of L&T’s annual guidance of 10-12% growth in FY24E and 17% of the core order inflows, the research firm said.

L&T’s hydrocarbon prospect list was worth Rs 3.47 lakh crore in the first quarter. Saudi Aramco has guided for capex of $45-55 billion in CY23 versus $37.6 billion in 2022, Morgan Stanley said.

The research firm suggests an ‘overweight’ rating with a price target of Rs 2,935, implying a return potential of 3.09%.
