GAIL (India) Stock Updates

GAIL (India) poised for a technical breakout, presents an attractive buying opportunity

In Monday's trading session, the market exhibited consolidation with a negative bias, causing the stock to trade around the day's low. In such weakness one stock caught the attention of chartists (Technical analysts) as the stock experienced a remarkable surge of over 2.5% with robust volumes surpassing the 20-day average and now ready to register a technical breakout of a continuation price pattern.

GAIL (India) Ltd is engaged in various aspects of the natural gas industry, including exploration, production, processing, transmission, distribution, and marketing. It operates in segments such as Transmission services, Natural Gas Trading or Marketing, Petrochemicals, LPG and Other Liquid Hydrocarbons, and Others.

From a technical standpoint, a careful analysis of the weekly chart reveals a 111-week consolidation phase. The stock has been consolidating within a wide range, with the upper boundary near Rs 115.55 and the lower boundary at Rs 83. Notably, the lower boundary aligns perfectly with the 38.2% retracement support level of the previous significant rally, as depicted on the weekly chart from March 2020. A trendline drawn from the high of the mid-week of April 2020 (Rs 115.55) to the mid-week of May 2023 (Rs 113.95) identifies the breakout trendline level (Rs 114) of the continuation price pattern.

Today, GAIL (India) Ltd witnessed buying interest in the morning session, resulting in a substantial surge of approximately 3.5% just below the mentioned breakout level. This rally was accompanied by strong trading volumes, surpassing the average volumes of the past 20 days. Closing above the Rs 114 level on a weekly basis will confirm the breakout, and based on the pattern, the stock's minimum target is estimated to be around Rs 140, indicating a potential increase of over 20% from the breakout level.

Considering all these factors, the stock presents an attractive buying opportunity that merits careful attention in the upcoming sessions.

About the Company

GAIL, formerly known as Gas Authority of India Ltd, was established by the Government of India in August 1984 to develop gas sector infrastructure for the sustained growth of the natural gas industry in the country. The first gas pipeline, spanning a distance of 2,800km between Hazira-Vijaipur-Jagdishpur, became operational in 1991. GAIL has diversified business interests including natural gas transmission and marketing, liquefied petroleum gas production and transmission, liquid hydrocarbon production, petrochemicals, and CGD. The company commenced its city gas distribution (CGD) operations in Delhi in 1997 by establishing nine CNG stations, followed by its entry into the petrochemicals sector in 1999.

GAIL’s stock reached a fresh high of Rs 206.90 per share on the NSE. Opening at Rs 203, it reached an intraday low of Rs 200.45. Interestingly, the stock’s up-move has propelled its market capitalization to over Rs 1,35,000 crore, surpassing companies like PFC, BPCL, and REC.

Solid Financial Performance

In Q3FY24, GAIL’s gross turnover increased by 8% to Rs 34,168 Crore compared to Rs 31,728 Crore in Q2 FY2024.

Profit before tax during the quarter increased to Rs 3694 Crores compared to Rs 3130 Crores in Q2 FY2024, representing an 18% increase. This growth can be attributed to an increase in LHC price realization, higher petrochemical sales, improved gas marketing margins, and a reduction in input gas costs for the petrochemical segment.
