Top 5 Stocks Mutual Funds Bought and Sold in September 2021

Oct 20, 2021

Just like August 2021, the month of September 2021 saw strong inflows into equity mutual funds.

Inflows into equity funds came in at Rs 21 bn in September 2021, compared to Rs 18 bn recorded in August.

New fund offer (NFO) inflows stood at Rs 65.8 bn compared to Rs 68.6 bn in August 2021.

The overall mutual funds industry's assets under management (AUM) jumped to nearly Rs 37 lakh crore in September 2021.

This resulted in a 33% growth if compared to the year-ago period.

However, net inflows fell for the second straight month. As per data by association of mutual funds in India (AMFI), equity mutual funds net inflows stood at Rs 64.6 bn, down from Rs 80.6 bn in August.

A major contribution to this month's inflows came from systematic investment plans (SIPs). For the first time, SIPs crossed the Rs 100 bn milestone.

SIP inflows came in at Rs 103.5 bn in September, compared to Rs 99.2 bn in August 2021.

New SIP account registrations increased to a record 2.68 m in September 2021. This is nearly 2.5 times higher than the long-term average.

September 2021 also marked the fourth consecutive month of new SIP registrations topping 2 m.

In fact, these SIP additions are a major factor of the rally we are seeing in Indian share markets.

The Indian share market's record run is finding strong support from retail mutual fund investors with SIP being the preferred mode.

As markets are trading at record high levels with no valuation concerns whatsoever, investors with low appetite have been encouraged to turn towards mutual fund SIPs.

Although the inflows have slowed down, this marked the seventh consecutive monthly infusion.

Before this, equity scheme had repeatedly witnessed outflows for eight consecutive months between July 2020 to February 2021.

July saw the highest equity inflows because interest rates on fixed deposits were lower than the inflation rate.

In August, new fund offers (NFOs) launched by MF houses contributed to most of the inflows.

In September, SIP was the knight in shining armor.

So, are mutual fund investors turning cautious as markets trade at all-time high?

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

As Indian stock markets have stabilised at higher levels, sentiment has improved and investors have become more confident now.

There are multiple factors pitching in for the rally we are witnessing. These include the pent-up demand coming back, industrial activity picking up, and recovery in manufacturing activity.

The month of September 2021 saw aggressive churn in stocks and the top funds have used the rally to selectively restructure the bias of their portfolios.

Backed by ample liquidity and bullish sentiment, asset management companies (AMCs) have launched NFOs.

Fund managers are showing huge appetite for recently listed initial public offerings (IPOs). This trend started in July and continued in September too.

Mutual funds enthusiastically bought recent debutants - Aditya Birla Sun Life AMC, Vijaya Diagnostics, Sansera Engineering, and Ami Organics.

Fund houses invested nearly Rs 8 bn in the IPO of Vijaya Diagnostics.

The increased participation in SIPs clearly shows the improving appetite from retail individuals.

As benchmark indices trade at sky-high valuations with big companies reporting in-line results, the momentum is likely to continue this year.

With new demat account additions, experts say that the MF industry in its nascent stage, will hit the Rs 100 lakh crore-mark in the next 10 years.

How the mutual fund buying and selling trend pans out in the month of October remains to be seen.

We will keep you updated on all the developments from this space.

Stay tuned.

Happy investing!
