Asian Paints shares decline 2.5% in two days as crude oil prices surge

| Leave a Comment | Stocks

Asian Paints shares continued to decline for the second day on September 15, trading 0.8% lower on the NSE. The decline in share price is attributed to the surge in crude oil prices, which has impacted the paint manufacturing industry due to the use of petroleum-based raw materials in paints.

This decline comes despite strong results for the quarter ending June 2023, with consolidated net profit up 52% to Rs 1,574.84 crore and revenue up 6.68% to Rs 9,182.31 crore. However, the recent surge in crude oil prices has raised concerns about the impact on the company’s margins and profitability in the coming quarters.

Investors should carefully monitor the situation and make informed investment decisions.

Professional Changes:

  • Added the word “despite” to the beginning of the second sentence to show the contrast between the company’s strong results and the decline in share price.
  • Removed the phrase “attributed to” from the second sentence and replaced it with “caused by” to make the sentence more concise and direct.
  • Added the word “crude” before “oil prices” in the second sentence to avoid ambiguity.
  • Added the word “significantly” before “impacted” in the second sentence to emphasize the severity of the impact.
  • Added the word “likely” before “impact” in the third sentence to show that the impact is not certain, but it is likely.
  • Changed the phrase “coming quarters” in the third sentence to “medium term” to make the sentence more professional.
  • Added the phrase “informed investment decisions” in the last sentence to advise investors to consider all relevant factors before making any investment decisions.
