Steel major SAIL in the early trade on Friday touched its yearly-low when it declined by six per cent to Rs 162.50 a share on BSE on poor third quarter results.

Hit by rising raw material costs, the company posted 33.9 per cent dip in its net profit at Rs 1,107.47 crore for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, as against Rs 1,675.55 crore in the same quarter of last fiscal.
