Today was the day of Chandrababu Naidu's comeback to Andhra Pradesh's throne, just one term after his rival Jagan Mohan Reddy's tenure, which ended with his defeat in the recently concluded assembly election. Naidu was sworn in as the CM of Andhra Pradesh on June 12.

Heritage Foods Hits Lower Circuit

All this was good news for Naidu and his allies, but this was not necessarily the case for Naidu's company, Heritage Food.

The dairy products manufacturing company's intraday trade on June 12 plunged 5 per cent or Rs 33.00. The shares hit the lower circuit, forcing the regulators to halt trading for the company.

The price of the individual share stood at Rs 627.30 when trading was halted. Trading is halted in the case of a stock reaching the upper or lower circuit to avoid misuse or exploitation of the system, by investors with vested interests.

This development is interesting, given the jump the company shares made in the week following Naidu's victory in the elections on June 4. The company shares had risen to 4.35 per cent, just in the past 5 days.

Heritage Food, who, as of 10:41 IST gained 15.12 per cent, taking the value of shares to Rs 527.05. There are some renowned names as well. Kolkata-based Emami gained 13.74 per cent. Jyothi Laborities gained 10.55 per cent.
