Nykaa’s Stock Soars: A Snapshot of Recent Performance
Nykaa, a prominent name in beauty and fashion e-commerce, experienced a notable surge in its share price, rallying over 4.14% on November 20 to ₹176 per share on the National Stock Exchange (NSE). This uptick in stock price marks a continuation of the gaining streak from last week, although the stock closed slightly lower at ₹172.85 on Monday, compared to its previous close at ₹167.65 on Friday.
Impressive Rally and Investor Sentiment
The shares of Nykaa had seen a significant jump of nearly 11% to ₹170 per piece during Friday’s intraday session, reaching an 11-month high. This rise in stock price came after a period of slow growth in the Beauty and Personal Care (BPC) segment of the company. However, a resurgence in the fashion business segment positively influenced investor sentiment, contributing to the stock’s recent rally.
Strong Quarterly Results Driving Growth
The positive momentum in Nykaa’s shares can be attributed to its impressive financial results for the September quarter. The company reported a 50% year-on-year increase in net profit, amounting to ₹7.8 crore. Furthermore, the total gross merchandise value (GMV) saw a 25% YoY growth, reaching ₹2,943.5 crore. Notably, the fashion vertical showed remarkable performance, outpacing the growth of the BPC segment.
2023 Stock Performance and Comparison with Nifty 50
So far in 2023, Nykaa’s stock has experienced growth of approximately 12%, slightly outperforming the Nifty 50 benchmark, which has seen an 8% rise. Nykaa’s parent company, FSN E-Commerce Ventures Ltd, also saw a surge of more than 8%, hitting its 11-month high on Friday. This rally not only helped the stock to enter positive territory for the year, but also demonstrated its resilience in the market.
Stock Momentum and Future Prospects
Despite the recent gains, Nykaa’s stock is still trailing behind its adjusted IPO price of ₹187. However, the stock’s recent performance has been impressive, with gains in three of the last four trading sessions and an 11% surge over the past week. In November, the stock recorded gains in 10 out of 13 trading sessions, indicating strong investor confidence and potential for future growth.
