Highlighting the reason for ITC stock price crash, Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, "The major reason for ITC share price slide are the rising cases of COVID-19. Due to this sudden rise in COVID-19 cases, ITC's tobacco and hotel business is likely to be hit, but its FMCG business will remain strong. Since the COVID-19 is a temporary sentiment, the weakness in ITC fundamentals are expected to ensure it holds its ground. So, ITC is expected to regain its Midas' touch once COVID-19 second wave settles down."
Gorakshkar advised investors to accumulate quality stocks in this COVID-19-hit market as it will help them accumulate money at a faster rate once pandemic fear abates.
