Himatsingka Seide, KPR Mill: Trading strategies for textile stocks

Among individual stocks, Bombay Dyeing surged 8 per cent to Rs 84.75 on the BSE
Shares of textile companies were in focus at the bourses on Thursday amid media reports that the cabinet note on National Textile Policy is ready to be considered for passage soon. According to a report by CNBC Awaaz, the government aims to invest Rs 10,000 crore in the sector in the next five years.

Among individual stocks, Bombay Dyeing surged 8 per cent to Rs 84.75 on the BSE, Arvind Limited rose 5 per cent, and KPR Mill gained 4.5 per cent. Besides, Aditya Birla Fashion and Nitin Spinners were up 2 per cent, each. In comparison, the benchmark S&P BSE Sensex was trading 0.3 per cent higher, at 11:22 AM.

According to experts, demand from the home textile industry is expected to remain supportive in the near-to-medium term. The home textile industry, they say, witnessed a strong demand revival during July-September quarter (Q2FY21) on high demand from big retailers (selling essentials), who saw their inventory pipeline running dry due to demand recovery, lower channel inventory, and precautionary buying by big retailers during the Covid-19 pandemic.
