Garden Reach Shipbuilders (GRSE) enjoyed another bullish day as the PSU's stock surged 18% to reach a new all-time high of 2,065 apiece during today's intraday trade, before closing the session with a 11% gain at 1,946.

Today's rally pushed the stock's gains to multibagger returns of 123% in CY24 so far. This remarkable rally builds on the stock's steady gains over the last three years, ending CY23 with an 80% increase. It rose 117% in CY22, and 15% in CY21.

Steady order wins have bolstered investor confidence in the company, pushing the stock price higher each month. On Saturday, the company secured a $54 million order for the construction and delivery of four 7,500 DWT multi-purpose vessels for German firms Carsten Rehder Schiffsmakler and Reederei GmbH & Co. KG. The contract also includes an option to build an additional four ships in the near future.

The order value is expected to be approximately Rs. 500 crore, although the contract is currently under negotiation and has not yet been signed.
