Adani Group to SBI Cards: Stocks that Will See the Highest Inflows After MSCI Rejig

May 13, 2021

Earlier this week, global index services provider Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) announced multiple changes to its MSCI India index.

The MSCI index is tracked widely by global investors as many global asset management firms, foreign pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and the like, use its indexes for the basis of deciding their weights in countries and individual companies.

Adani Enterprises, Adani Total Gas, Adani Transmission, Bharat Electronics, Cholamandalam Investment and SBI Cards and Payment Services will be added to the MSCI India Index.

The half a dozen inclusions included three Adani group stocks. Billionaire Gautam Adani-controlled Adani Green Energy and Adani Ports are already part of the index.

On the other hand, Zee Entertainment will be the sole omission.

The half-yearly review of MSCI India index also saw exclusion of TVS Motor Company and Abbott India from the index and they have been included in the MSCI India Domestic Small Cap Index.

The changes will come into effect on the close of 27 May.

In a note, Morgan Stanley said India's weight will increase by 5 basis points to 9.74% in the MSCI Emerging Markets index with these changes.

What is MSCI EM Index?

The MSCI Emerging Markets (EM) index is an equity index created by Morgan Stanley to capture large- and mid-cap companies across 26 emerging market countries.

Launched in 2001, the index covers approximately 1,387 listed entities that account for 85% of the free float market capitalisation in each country.

Companies must satisfy certain minimum criteria relating to full market capitalisation, free-float market capitalisation, stock liquidity, and foreign inclusion factor, among others to be included in the index.

Is the MSCI Indexation Important?

The MSCI index is tracked widely by global investors. Many global asset management firms, foreign pension funds, sovereign wealth funds and the like, use these indexes as a basis for deciding their weights in countries and individual companies.

An increase in India's weight in the MSCI index can result in large capital inflows into the Indian share markets.

In anticipation of inflows, investors generally buy certain stocks, hoping to make quick profits.

These 3 Stocks are the Dark Horses of the Stock Market

The mainstream media mostly ignores them.

Mutual funds and hedge funds can't buy them in bulk.

These stocks are the dark horses of the stock market.

Over the years, she has spotted such stocks which have gone on to offer triple and even quadruple digit gains for investors. (* Past performance is no guarantee of future results)

Today, when the markets are near all-time high... and some investors are thinking of booking profits... Richa has spotted 3 such stocks which are set for a massive rally.

She will reveal the details of these 3 stocks on 28th June at her free online summit.
