Due to the second wave of the coronavirus, the healthcare systems are working at their peaks and there is a countrywide shortage of oxygen cylinders. Investors willing to earn good return on investment normally react to this news and trends which is not wrong but you should have a research and you should analyze the business of the stocks you want to buy. In this article, we are discussing about Oxygen related shares in India.
Sometimes investors take unhealthy decisions dependent on the news like the company Bombay Oxygen Investment Limited whose, stock price jumped 145.75% in the last month and this happened because oxygen is in its name and people started buying whereas the company is not related to oxygen, it is an NBFC.
