In the realm of stock investing, the trajectory of shares is far from linear, as various factors ranging from global economic shifts to domestic policy changes and regulatory updates can swiftly influence stock prices. 

Even the most promising stocks are not immune to fluctuations, potentially leading to periods of decline followed by the possibility of sustaining such trends in the ensuing months.

Despite fluctuations in the market, the shares of Cummins India, one of the leading power solution providers, have consistently exhibited a robust upward trajectory. Out of the last 24 months, the stock has only recorded losses in five, and those losses were minor.

Cummins India is a leading manufacturer of diesel and natural gas engines. The company is engaged in the business of manufacturing, trading, and selling engines and allied activities. It presently operates in three business segments: engines, power systems, and distribution.

Analysts anticipate that these demand drivers will persist as there has been an increase in data center capacity, as well as in the launch of residential and commercial projects over the past three years.

In the industrial segment, demand is bolstered by the government's ongoing focus on infrastructure development. Additionally, in the distribution segment, increased service offerings, enhanced penetration across different cities and segments, and reconditioning offerings are contributing to demand growth, according to analysts.

The company sold 3,000 CPCB IV+ gensets during 3QFY24 in regions where stringent emission norms are in place. With the implementation of CPCB IV+ norms in July 2024, analysts expect a better price recovery for CPCB IV+ products.
