Cochin Shipyard shares handsomely rewarded investors in 2023 as the stock nearly tripled. The late December boost was attributed to the company securing a contract with the Ministry of Defence on December 19, 2023, valued at Rs 488 crore. The contract involves the repair and maintenance of equipment and systems onboard a naval vessel, with completion expected by first quarter of FY25.

Cochin Shipyard posted revenue of Rs 954 crore in second quarter of current financial year which was 40 per cent higher than Rs 683 crore during the same period last financial year.
