IRB Infrastructure Developers share price surged 7% to touch a 52-week high on Tuesday’s trading session after the company’s toll collection jumped 26% year over year (YoY) to ₹488 crore from ₹388 crore. The IRB Infrastructure Developers Ltd share price opened at ₹43.50 apiece on BSE and touched an intraday high of ₹45.15 and a low of ₹43.50.
According to Riyank Arora, Technical Analyst at Mehta Equities Ltd, IRB Infrastructure Developers stock price has given a good breakout above its recent swing high of ₹43.50. With the overall trend being positive and the stock continuously moving in an uptrend, it seems like the stock is likely headed towards ₹49 and ₹54 in a spree of momentum rally. Any pullback towards ₹43-44 should be considered as a good buying opportunity with a strict stoploss placed below ₹40 mark.

In the company’s exchange filing, Amitabh Murarka, Dy CEO of the company said, “Much pleased to see the continued growth momentum across all our highways assets. Since, the second half of the FY is always better from Toll Collection perspective, we expect this growth to continue for the remaining quarter of FY24 too, especially after Samakhiyali Santalpur BOT project in the State of Gujarat which started toll collection from December 28, 2023, and will have full month toll revenue in remaining months of FY24.”
