Why This Small Cap Stock Surged 14% Today

Dodla Dairy shares surged to an all-time high, skyrocketing 14% on Monday after the firm achieved its quarterly revenue guidance for the first time.

What Happened? The dairy maker recently reported a 14.8% rise in revenue from operations, which reached ₹823 crore in the June quarter compared to the same period last year. This growth in operating revenue was attributed to a surge in value-added products and fat product sales during the quarter, supported by an extended summer season, a diverse product portfolio, and strong brand recall, according to an exchange filing.
