While it isn't clear what NSDL's activity will impact for these organizations, financial investors appear to be stressed that the expanded investigation might actually bring about changes in shareholding pattern, which may mean an expansion in free float. Regardless, the administrative glare in itself is a concern.

Adani Group stocks had easily topped the league tables regards post-Coronavirus market returns. As called attention to in these pages in March, five of the best 10 stocks as far as returns post-Coronavirus were from the Adani Group.

A loosely held bit of information in the business sectors was that the sharp rise in these stocks was because of a low free float in the most of these stocks. Advertiser holding is around 75% for most stocks in the group, and a large portion of the rest of held by a bunch of unfamiliar financial investors who are common financial investor in some group firms. This means that the effective free float was extremely low, creating an abnormal scarcity in the company’s shares. While numerous news reports have raised up questions about this unique set of foreign financial investors, none of them had an impact on the rally in Adani Group stocks.
