Since its IPO last year, this energy stock has returned 1765% to its investors
Shares of EKI Energy jumped 40% in just five trading sessions; here's why.
The stock of EKI Energy jumped more than 40% from October 6, 2022, opening at Rs 1869. The price of one share went from Rs 1346 on October 6, 2022, to Rs 1953 today. The management's clarification that India is no longer restricted from exporting surplus carbon credits likely contributed to the stock's dramatic rise. The announcement comes after RK Singh, the country's Minister of Power, New, and Renewable Energy provided some explanation on the matter.
The share price has been falling from its January 2018 high of Rs 3,114 due to the news of a prohibition on the export of carbon credits. Following the release of the latest information from the Power Ministry, the stock has seen consistent buying on high volume.
