Torrent Pharma share price surged over 8% to touch a 52-week high on Monday after the company's Q4 results were mostly in line with the Street's estimates. On the strength of higher revenue, Torrent Pharmaceuticals reported a 56.45% rise in its consolidated net profit to 449 crore for the March quarter on Friday. The company's consolidated revenue from operations for the fourth quarter of FY24 was 2,745 crore, up from 2,491 crore for the same time the previous year.

According to the company, revenue in India increased by 10% to 1,380 crore during the quarter, while revenue in Brazil grew by 17% to 372 crore and in Germany by 11% to 280 crore.

However, it also stated that US business revenue was down 6% to 262 crore.

The board has also suggested that in order to fund up to 5,000 crore through the issuing of equity shares—including convertible bonds and debentures through qualified institutional placement (QIP) and/or other methods—enabling consent be obtained from the shareholders.

Torrent Pharma share price opened at an intraday-high of 2,839.90 apiece on BSE. According to Rajesh Bhosale - Equity Technical and Derivative Analyst, Angel One, the stock prices have seen a strong gap-up opening above the previous session high; in the morning session itself, the prices are up 4%. We are seeing strong volumes in this move and expect the uptrend to continue. Recently,  2,750 has been acting as a hurdle, and a break beyond this would trigger a trending move, possibly towards 2,900, and 2,650 is seen as support.

Further, Ruchit Jain, Lead Research Analyst at 5paisa, added that the stock has consolidated in a range in the last three months. However, the prices have not breached the 100 DEMA support, and hence, it just seems to be a time-wise correction within a broader uptrend. A closing above 2,750 could lead to a resumption of the uptrend. The immediate supports are around 2,600 and 2,530.
