Maruti Suzuki shares at 52-week high after company announces price hikes

close

Mumbai:

Shares of Maruti Suzuki India today rose by over 3 per cent to touch a one-year high level after the company said it will increase the prices of its vehicles across all models by up to Rs 20,000 from January.

After making a bullish opening, shares of the country's largest car maker rallied 3.54 per cent to a one-year high of Rs 1,533.75 as the trade progressed on the BSE.

On NSE, the scrip gained 3.56 per cent to Rs 1,535.40—its 52-week high level.

The scrip was the top performer among the 30-share Sensex’s blue-chip companies during the morning trade.

"We expect the price increase to slightly offset the negative impact of foreign exchange movement on the operating margins of the company," Angel Broking said in a report.

The company has said price hike has been necessitated due to increasing pressure on the margins due to the currency fluctuation.

Meanwhile, buying was also seen on other auto counters. Tata Motors was trading 2.14 per cent higher, while Mahindra & Mahindra rose by 1.43 per cent.
