Shares of NALCO, a PSU firm engaged in alumina and aluminum manufacturing and sales, soared 6.1% to reach a historic peak of 206.30 apiece in early morning trading today, driven by the company's robust performance for Q4 and the full fiscal year (FY24).

On Monday, the company reported a 101% YoY surge in its consolidated profit to 996.74 crore for the March quarter, propelled by a significant drop in expenses, which declined by 14% YoY to 2,720 crore in Q4.

For FY24, it reported a PAT of 1,988 crore, a 38.63% improvement compared to the previous fiscal year's PAT of 1,434 crore. 

The company reported 1.6% YoY drop in revenue from operations to 3,663 crore in the March quarter and witnessed a 7.5% YoY decline in revenues to 13,399 crore for the full fiscal year.

During the past six months, the company's shares have embarked on a bullish trajectory, soaring from 92 apiece to the current trading price of 201, marking an impressive multi-bagger rally of 118%. 

This remarkable surge is attributed to the significant uptick in global aluminium prices, driven by supply disruptions and a resurgence in the Chinese economy.
