The shares of Paradeep Phosphates got listed in May 2022. Since then, the share prices have appreciated by over 11%. A steeper climb in the latest one-month period was led by the purchase of the company’s shares by some mutual funds.
It is also being said that the company might benefit from the closure of the Mangalore Chemical and Fertilisers Ltd (MCFL) plant. To give a perspective, MCFL has announced a temporary closure of its 280000 MT DAP/NPK plant due to the non-availability of raw materials.
