PSU stocks are once again asserting their dominance on Dalal Street, with majority of them resuming their winning streak in recent sessions. Investors continue to add them to their portfolios, despite some trading at elevated valuations.

Fueling the recent surge in PSU counters are defence stocks, especially those involved in shipbuilding. These companies are experiencing substantial increases in share values, hitting record highs with each passing day. The uptrend is propelled by robust order wins and improvement in their financial performance.

The Indian defence shipbuilding sector remains promising, buoyed by the ambitious acquisition plans of the Indian Navy and Indian Coast Guard. This outlook bodes well for Indian shipbuilders and the entire ecosystem supporting them.
