FIIs increased stake in these 48 companies!

You are currently viewing FIIs increased stake in these 48 companies!

In the past instances, we have seen that whenever there is a high-risk scenario, the FIIs have fled Indian markets or for that matter most emerging markets. This time is no different as well, as the risk of economic growth has increased substantially post the COVID-19 pandemic led lockdown. The FIIs have sold nearly Rs. 84,000 cr worth of stocks in the first three months of 2020. This continued in April as FIIs further sold Rs. 5,200 cr. It is only rational for FIIs to sell in these circumstances as investors turn risk-averse and prefer to invest in safe havens.

Despite the sharp selling in the first three months, the FIIs have increased stake in these 48 companies in the quarter ending March 2020. Our coverage includes stocks from the BSE200 index.

Here is the list of the companies in which FIIs have increased stake.
