Why This Tata Stock Is Upbeat Today

Tata Steel’s share price started the fresh week in the green, making gains for the fourth straight session on Monday.

What Happened: Shares of the Tata Group company are upbeat today as the company late last week confirmed the much-anticipated agreement with the UK government.
