Speaking of stock markets, investors used to believe that they have to choose between high dividend paying stocks and high growth stocks, as these were perceived as two distinct types of investments.

High dividend stocks were typically viewed as defensive investments, offering steady income but limited growth potential, while high growth stocks were seen as more volatile investments, with greater potential for capital appreciation but lower dividend yields.

However, there are some companies that offer both high dividend yields and strong growth potential. Yazad Pavri talks about such companies in the below video.

Why Adani Group stocks are falling once again

Shares of the Adani group's flagship firm Adani Enterprises tanked 7%, while five other group stocks hit their 5% lower circuit limits on Tuesday amid a media report that raised questions about whether the group repaid debts worth US$ 2.15 bn.

The Adani group had earlier this month announced the completion of the full prepayment of margin-linked share-backed financing ahead of the committed timeline of 31 March 2023.

The report suggested that the Adani Group only reduced the loan amount through a partial repayment to avoid pledging more shares and further action against it by lenders.

It alleged that following the Adani group's prepayment announcement, banks have only released the pledged shares of Adani Ports.

It claimed that the pledged shares of Adani Green Energy and Adani Transmission had not been released by the bank even a month after the loan repayment announcement.

In the meantime, according to other media report the Adani Group is seeking to renegotiate the terms of outstanding loans worth US$ 4 bn taken in August last year for the acquisition of its cement assets - ACC and Ambuja Cements, from Switzerland-based Holcim group.
