TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS

the second quarter is a seasonally weak quarter for the sector due to the monsoon, the current quarter has been additionally impacted by rising electricity and fuel costs, which have dented the margins.

Nevertheless, Ultratech is the best bet on the sector’s revival and India’s growing infrastructure, owing to its dominant scale and highly efficient operations. While power inflation will keep costs elevated, we expect the company to increase prices in Q3FY22 to pass on rising costs and protect its margin.
