In Focus

Jewellery stocks glitter

Shares of major jewellery makers like Titan, Kalyan Jewellers and PC Jeweller rose in the range of 4-5% on Friday. Robust quarterly business updates from Titan and Kalyan Jewellers are having a rub-off effect on other stocks. But what is making jewellery stocks shine now? Read on to find out:     

During the September quarter, Titan’s jewellery segment reported 18% year-on-year growth and added 25 new stores. Meanwhile, Kalyan Jewellers recorded consolidated revenue growth of 20% and added five new showrooms during the period.  

As per market experts, strong sales growth is attributed to pent-up demand and the low-base effect of last year. In addition, prices of 22 karat gold, used in making jewellery, fell below ₹50,000 per 10 grams and were hovering near ₹49,000 per 10 grams in September, which also acted as a trigger for demand. 

Besides this, the steady economic revival has also played its part to lift consumer mood and demand for the precious metal. Other factors include the upcoming festive and wedding season, during which gold demand generally sees an uptick. 

In anticipation of strong future demand, shares of jewellery makers are gaining strong traction. In fact, Kalyan Jewellers and PC Jeweller hit new 52-week highs today. Having said that, high inflation and rupee depreciation could act as party spoilers.

What is divestment?

Divestment is the process by which a company sells its subsidiaries or business divisions. Divestment is the opposite of investment and is usually done when that business division is not performing up to expectations. In some cases, however, a company may be forced to sell assets as a result of legal or regulatory action.
