Dabur’s Q4 Result

As of the fourth quarter for the fiscal year 2024, Dabur India’s performance has positively impacted market sentiment, which is evident in its sustained gains in market share and a strong rural growth versus urban markets. This rural revival is enhancing prospects for the firm, with an expected high single-digit volume increase forecasted for FY2024–25. This expansion is likely to be underpinned by a gentle price hike of 2-3 percent propelled mainly through strong sales in rural areas as stated by Nuvama.

On May 3, Dabur’s stock price reflected this positive sentiment by jumping up to Rs 537 or +2.3% early morning.
