What experts say?
Talking about action energy stocks, Mohit Nigam, Head - PMS, Hem Securities, said, “The rally is due to the news circulating the Electricity Amendment Bill 2021 which was presented in Budget 2021 if passed will be beneficial for the many players in the power industry.”
“The bill plans to delicense state monopolies in power distribution and open them for competition. This way the consumer has the choice in choosing its power service provider,” he said.
"Energy markets remain in the headlines as natural gas and oil prices surge to multi-year highs. The energy crunch raises fears about the upcoming winter heating season and longer-lasting tightness," Norbert Rücker, Head Economics and Next Generation Research, Julius Baer, said.
As China has been facing acute power shortage and tight coal supplies, it has turned out to be a boon for Indian shares in this space.
The energy shortage in China is currently fueling the rally in power and other related stocks, not only in India but in developed markets too, said Ajit Mishra, VP- Research, Religare Broking Ltd
"We have been upbeat about our view on REALTY pack and that has played out really well. With regards to POWER and UTLITIES we expect some kind of consolidation after such run up. However; all the mentioned sectors, including REALTY have turned positive on a larger scale and that is why any major dips in them would be a buying opportunity but the dips could be really deep," said Mehul Kothari, AVP – Technical Research at AnandRathi.
