Should You Invest in ONGC Limited?

If you are still not sure about it, take a look at the below factors for further information. 

  • ONGC stock price reached ₹176.40 on February 14th. There was an increase of nearly 5% that came out right after the company reported an exceptional increase in its December quarter earnings. 
  • On February 11th, this state-owned oil and gas company also reported a consolidated profit after tax of ₹11,637 Crores for the 3rd quarter that ended in December 2021 compared to the profit of ₹3,637 Crores reported in the equivalent quarter last year.
