Welspun Corp (NS:)’s shares experienced a drop on Thursday, with a nearly 3% decline and touching an intraday low of Rs 438.8 on the NSE, compared to the previous close. This downward movement comes despite the company announcing a prestigious contract for exporting Longitudinal submerged arc welded (LSAW) pipes and bends from its Anjar, India facilities to the Middle East.
The substantial export order involves supplying around 61,000 MT of bare pipes and bends intended for extreme sour service application in offshore gas production and transportation. This challenging project enhances Welspun’s reputation as a leading global line pipe manufacturer.
Earlier this week, Welspun’s shares had reached a 52-week high of Rs 457.3 on Monday, according to InvestingPro data. This demonstrates the company’s robust financial performance and aligns with the InvestingPro Tip that the company has been trading near its 52-week high.
Over the past year, Welspun has delivered impressive returns of 95%, while its one-month return stands over 12%. Despite Thursday’s trading losses, the company’s overall strong performance and recent contract win suggest a positive outlook for its future operations.
