Pharma funds
The increase in the net asset values (NAVs) of pharma funds can be attributed to the appreciation witnessed in Ranbaxy and Dr Reddys. The former increased on expectations of a milestone payment from Bayer, with Dr Reddys witnessing significant buying based on its promising research pipeline and a hike in exports (to countries other than Russia).
