Top 5 Stocks Mutual Funds Bought and Sold in May 2021

Jun 17, 2021

Equity mutual funds continued to draw investors in May 2021 even as India faces one of the biggest health crisis.

In the month of May, the mutual fund industry witnessed highest net inflows since March 2020, as a decline in covid cases combined with vaccination drive and prospects of an economic recovery improved investor sentiment.

Better than expected earnings also boosted optimism.

Investors pumped in Rs 100.8 bn into equity and equity-oriented schemes during May 2021.

This marks the third consecutive month of net inflows for open-ended equity schemes.

After eight consecutive months of outflows, equity mutual funds saw net inflows of Rs 91.2 bn in March 2021 and Rs 34.4 bn in April 2021.

The contribution of monthly systematic investment plan (SIP) increased marginally to Rs 88.2 bn in May from Rs 85.9 bn in April 2021.

Let us take a look at which stocks mutual funds traded in the most during this period.
