Power Grid shares surge 10% to a record high; Market cap crosses ₹3 lakh crore.

Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd. witnessed a surge in its stock price, climbing by as much as 9.9% on Monday, reaching a new peak of ₹340.7. This propelled Power Grid's market capitalization beyond the ₹3 lakh crore mark, placing it among the select few state-owned enterprises alongside SBI and NTPC to achieve such a valuation.

The government maintains a controlling stake of 51.34% in Power Grid, valued at over ₹1.6 lakh crore at the session's pinnacle.

Technically, Power Grid's stock is trading above its significant 50, 100, and 200-Day Moving Averages. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) stands at 67, approaching the overbought threshold. An RSI above 70 typically indicates an overbought condition. Despite reporting a 2.5% dip in revenue and a 2.1% decrease in net profit compared to the previous year's March quarter, Power Grid's EBITDA margin contracted by more than 600 basis points.

CLSA, a brokerage firm, maintains an "outperform" rating on the stock, setting a price target of ₹345 for the fiscal year 2024, foreseeing a period of market share expansion for Power Grid.
