Sugar company shares

Sugar company shares were under pressure for the second day in a row, tumbling up to 9% on the BSE in Wednesday’s trade after the government announced export limits on sugar on Tuesday.

Sugar exports will be regulated by the government, with a limit of 10 MT for the current sugar season. Sugar mills have already contracted for 9 metric tonnes of exports and have shipped 7.8 metric tonnes.

In intra-day trade on the BSE, Dwarikesh Sugar Industries, Dalmia Bharat Sugar and Industries, Triveni Engineering & Industries, Balrampur Chini Mills, Avadh Sugar & Energy, and Uttam Sugar were all down 5-9 percent. The S&P BSE Sensex, on the other hand, was up 0.07 percent at 54,092 points at 10:04 a.m.

Sugar company stock prices have fallen 15% to 20% in the last week, compared to a 0.21 percent drop in the benchmark index. India planned to limit exports to approximately 10 million tonnes for the first time in six years to avoid a fall in stocks and a rise in domestic prices.
