Adani Enterprises Hits New Record High. Marketcap Surpasses Rs 1.5 tn

Jun 2, 2021

Adani Enterprises shares rose 9% today and hit a new high of Rs 1,549 per share in intra-day trade on the BSE. It has surged 17% in the past two trading days.

The flagship company of the Gautam Adani led Adani Group, has now surpassed its previous high of Rs 1,335 per share, touched in January 2008, before the restructuring of its businesses.

What's Behind the Rally?

In the month of May, shares of the Adani Group companies outperformed the benchmark index and surged 13.6% on the BSE compared with a 6.5% gain in the Sensex.

The sharp rally, which came on the back of a healthy March quarter performance, has resulted in the company's market capitalisation touching Rs 1.5 tn.

Apart from that, last month the global index services provider Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) announced multiple changes to its MSCI India index.

Three Adani group stocks were included in this review - Adani Transmission, Adani Enterprises, and Adani Total Gas.

Gautam Adani-controlled Adani Green Energy and Adani Ports were already part of the index.
