The government will receive Rs 14.3 bn as dividend from the company.

The total dividend payout for the year gone by stands at Rs 16 per share or 160%.

The government is the largest shareholder with control of 66.1% in Coal India. Its shareholding in the company reduced from 71% due to continuous dilution in small tranches since March 2019.

The company's dividend policy and high capital expenditure has led to a sharp drop in the free cash position of the world's largest miner.

Coal India's free cash balance dropped to Rs 173.1 bn this year from around Rs 280 bn in 2019-20 as its cash flow generation could not match the outflow due to lower sales trend last year owing to slowdown and Covid-19 related disruptions.

Coal India share price has opened the day down by 0.4%.

Speaking of Coal India, have a look at the chart below to see how the stock has performed over the past one year.

Over the last one year, the company's share price is up 12.4%.

The share touched its 52-week high of Rs 164.9 last week on 11 June.

How the stock performs in the coming months remains to be seen.

Moving on, Adani group stocks are in focus today.

As per a leading financial daily, at least four foreign funds are in the limelight for their investment in Adani group companies.

The four funds include Elara India Opportunities Fund, Albula Investment, APMS Investment and Cresta Fund.

They have investment in a number of domestically listed firms besides the Adani group firms.

However, the value of their holdings in Adani group stocks is between 94.7% and 98%, raising eyebrows over their investment decisions.

Albula, APMS and Cresta are registered as FPI under Category I with the markets regulator.

The group said all three funds have been investors for over a decade and their ownership in other group firms is due to demergers.

An Indicator to Predict Upcoming Bull Run

You can identify the strength and momentum of emerging trends by using ADX indicator.

Derivatives traders can even use it detect range bound markets for deploying options writing strategies.

Watch this video to learn how to use ADX indicator to predict upcoming bull runs.

A large portion of the 25% public float is with funds such as Elara, Albula, LIC, Opal, APMS and Cresta. As a result, market experts say the actual free float is low, which could potentially hamper fair price discovery.

Note that yesterday, all Adani group stocks tumbled following reports accounts of three investor funds had been frozen.

The group later clarified saying the reports about NSDL freezing the funds' accounts as "blatantly erroneous".

How the above developments pan out remains to be seen.
