Bajaj Electrical, Eveready Industries, PC Jeweller, Symphony, V-Guard Industries and Westlife Development from the consumer related sectors, too, hit 52-week high today.

On October 18, 2017, CARE Ratings, the credit rating agency, had assigned credit rating of CARE A+ to the TV18 Broadcast’s commercial paper programme aggregating to Rs 400 crore.

A strong parentage and the company’s ability to achieve sustainable profitability while maintaining its leadership position remain the key rating sensitivities.

Since October 25, post September quarter results, the stock has outperformed the market by gaining 14% after the company posted a 49% surge in its net profit on a 10% rise in sales volume and a 7% increase in earnings.

“Post GST, the wholesale channels are yet to recover completely from the impact, which we expect to improve in the second half (October-March) of the year. International business is also back on track riding on the base effect of last year’s performance. The SAARC regions and Africa did particularly well,” said Mohan Goenka, director, Emami while announcing Q2 results.
