Shares of Hindustan Motors have swum against the tide in the past one month and managed to accumulate healthy returns for its investors.
The shares of the automobile company more than doubled in the past 30 days. To be precise, it rose 103 per cent.
Notably, it reportedly hit upper circuits for 15 consecutive sessions in a row. At 2.28 pm, the shares were at Rs 23, as against Rs 11 same time previous month.
During the same period, domestic benchmark indices declined about 5 per cent over concerns of high inflation as well as inflationary expectations and the subsequent raise in policy rates, which in turn may hurt growth.
