ITC | CMP: Rs 227.90 | The stock price jumped over 3 percent as taxes on cigarette and other tobacco products were left untouched by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in her Budget for the year 2022-23. As cigarette or tobacco business contributes more than 40 percent to the company’s revenue, the street always turns cautious on the scrip in the run-up to the Budget amid fear of an increased tax. Sitharaman, however, didn’t make any changes to the taxes, which experts said was positive for ITC.

Tata Steel | CMP: Rs 1,166.55 | The share price gained over 7 percent after as the Budget focussed on infrastructure development, which in turn would increase steel production. Koushik Chatterjee, ED and CFO of Tata Steel, in an interview to CNBC-TV18 said anything on infrastructure is good for metals, especially steel. "Duties that are coming in essentially in relation to scrap customs duty, which is extended for a year to help the secondary producers I think that is fine. Broadly, this budget is focused on infrastructure development and that is going to enhance the metal intensity in the economy, which is going to be good for all metals and mining companies," he added.
Shree Cement | CMP: Rs 25,595 | The stock price rose over 5 percent after Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman sharply increased the capital expenditure for 2022-23 in the Union Budget presented on February 1. The finance minister fixed the outlay on capital expenditure for next year at Rs. 7.5 lakh crore, sharply higher than the Rs 5.5 lakh crore budgeted for 2021-22.

BPCL | CMP: Rs 379.35 | The scrip shed over 4 percent after the standalone net profit during the December quarter came in at Rs 2,462.45 crore, down 11.3 percent from Rs 2,777.62 crore in the year-ago period. JP Morgan, however, has an overweight call on the stock with the target at Rs 550 a share. The profit was a miss likely because of consensus under estimating inventory.
