Why Tata Steel Shares Are Upbeat Today

JP Morgan’s ‘overweight’ call on Tata Steel helped the stock jump back in the green on Monday to start a fresh week.

What Happened: JP Morgan on Monday maintained its ‘overweight’ call on the Tata Group company with a price target of ₹150 – an over 40% upside from the stock’s last closing price of ₹106.15. The firm said that it expects the steel major to deliver a 6-7% volume CAGR in India till 2030. The positive call helped the Tata Steel share price halt the two-session losing streak today.

The company today also announced that it has commenced the trial injection of hydrogen gas using 40% of the injection systems in ‘E' Blast Furnace at its Jamshedpur Works. “This is the first time in the world that such a large quantity of hydrogen gas is being continuously injected in a blast furnace,” the company added in a statement.

Commenting on the development, the company’s Vice President (Technology and R&D), Dr Debashish Bhattacharjee said that the company “remains dedicated to leveraging innovation and technology in its pursuit of becoming the industry leader in sustainability.”
