India’s integrated metals producer Hindalco Industries (HINDALCO) clocked its best-ever quarterly net profit and operating profit as the company leveraged the rise in demand from economic revival with optimum product mix, according to an exchange filing released on Friday.

Hindalco, the second-biggest company of the Aditya Birla conglomerate, reported a consolidated net profit of INR34.17bn ($455mn), higher by 783% from the same period last year and 23% more from the quarter ended June 2021. 

Total consolidated revenue for the quarter rose 52.5% on-year to INR476.6bn and 15% from the preceding three months, the company said in an exchange filing. Novelis – Hindalco Industries’ biggest subsidiary – recorded a quarterly net profit of $244mn, a 54% increase from the previous year period.

The unit’s revenue was $4.1bn, higher by 38% from the previous comparable period, helped by higher shipments, global aluminium prices and market premiums. Shipments rose on the back of surging demand across product markets leading with the beverage packaging and speciality products.

Copper production in the latest quarter was 38% on-year higher at 100kt (kiloton) while copper metal sales were at 110kt as against 75kt in the same period last year. Higher volumes, better operational efficiencies and improved by-product realisations pushed the revenue from the copper business to INR95.87bn, up 101% on-year.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
