Listed jewellers’ record gains on scrapping of gold import restrictions

04 december 2014

The unexpected scrapping of the 80:20 gold import rule last week by the Indian government saw shares of listed jewellery companies’ rise strongly on Indian bourses over the past few days. Companies like Gitanjali Gems, Shree Ganesh and TBZ rose by almost 20%, while other big jewellery houses like Titan, PC Jeweller, Rajesh Exports, Tara Jewels and others also recorded significant gains.
Analysts attribute the strong investor interest in these shares based on two factors. One, the direct benefits that may accrue as premiums for gold rose due to limited availability, which can fall due to improving cash flows for jewellers. On the other hand, sentiment was also boosted by the totally unexpected nature of the announcement, which had come at a time when the government was actually expected to announce more stringent curbs on gold imports. The speculation had begun when gold imports for last month reached record levels.
