Speaking of stock markets, the Indian share markets have remained quite volatile in recent weeks.

Even a genius mathematician was once a victim of such market volatility. Instead of going with near term trends and speculative bets on stocks like Infosys and HDFC Bank, it is important to study their long-term financials and valuations carefully.

Especially, if you are considering these stocks as your 10-year bets.

Another insolvent airline company?

India's bankruptcy court on May 8 sought a reply from budget carrier SpiceJet on a plea claiming unpaid dues.

The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) has issued a notice to SpiceJet on its insolvency plea as it agreed to hear from an operational creditor claiming unpaid dues by the domestic airline.

The operational creditor has moved NCLT claiming unpaid dues and sought initiation of corporate insolvency resolution process (CIRP) proceedings under Section 9 of Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC).

The plea was filed last week against SpiceJet by aircraft lessor Aircastle. NCLT will next hear the plea on 17 May 2023.

Following the notice, SpiceJet replied to a query by media house that in the Aircastle issue, notice was issued in normal course and there was no adverse ruling against SpiceJet. The court has recognised the fact that parties are under settlement discussions, and they can continue to pursue the same, the official said.

According to the airline, this development in no manner affects its operations or operating fleet. It is confident of resolving the matter without court proceedings, adding that it was in discussions with their senior leadership team for the same.

This comes at a time when the NCLT has already heard peer Go First's plea in which the airline has sought an interim moratorium and bankruptcy protection. The tribunal has reserved its order on a plea filed by cash-strapped airline.

Aircraft lessors to Go First have rejected the petition arguing that a moratorium will stop third parties from enforcing their contractual rights.

Speaking of Go First, while the bankruptcy took a toll on the overall sentiment of the market there are some stocks that benefit from bankruptcy. To know more about such beneficiaries read our editorial on Go First bankruptcy: watch out for these 5 stocks.
