Adani Stocks Extend Rally: Group Market Cap Crosses Rs 15 lakh Crore

Adani Group stocks extended their rally on December 7 to touch new highs, taking the market capitalisation of the power-to-port conglomerate above Rs 15 lakh crore.

The rally got a further boost after a recent report said the US government did not find Hindenburg Research’s allegations of corporate fraud against the conglomerate relevant.

Another key trigger has been the group’s plan to invest Rs 7 lakh crore on capex over the next decade and Adani Green Energy securing a $1.36 billion loan from a consortium of eight international banks.

Paytm Share Price Tumbles:

Shares of Paytm traded over 18 percent lower on December 7 after the company announced plans to slow down its small-ticket postpaid loans while it looks to expand its high-ticket personal loans and merchant loans. 

The non-bank lender said on December 6 it will expand its portfolio of high-ticket personal and commercial loans to lower-risk and high-credit-worthy customers.

Paytm’s plans to give out more higher ticket loans would not fully offset a scale back of smaller-ticket loans, analysts at Goldman Sachs said in a note. It downgraded the stock to ‘neutral’ from ‘buy’. The firm also lowered the price target to Rs 840 from Rs 1,250, the report said.
