Tata Motors (NS:TAMO) (NYSE:TTM) experienced a notable 1% surge in its shares today, reaching an intraday high of ₹660.80 on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) following the announcement of Tata Technologies’ highly anticipated initial public offering (IPO) scheduled for November 22. This announcement marks a significant milestone as it represents the first IPO from the Tata Group since the public debut of Tata Consultancy Services (NS:TCS) back in 2004.
Simultaneously, Tata Motors’ Differential Voting Rights (DVR) shares witnessed a remarkable 2% increase, soaring to a new peak at ₹453.50. This surpasses the previous high set on November 3, showcasing the positive investor sentiment surrounding the company.
While the market observed several noteworthy stocks, including Dabur (NS:DABU), ASK Auto, TaMo, PC Jeweller, and Yatra, Tata Motors stood out with its DVR shares crossing the ₹300 milestone. This comes amid a week featuring the launch of seven new IPOs, prompting investors to exercise caution and avoid common pitfalls associated with public offerings.
Adding to the intrigue is the heightened anticipation around Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) £3 billion investment plan. The British currency exchange rate stands at GBP1 = USD1.2492. This development further fuels investor interest in Tata Motors and its subsidiaries.
