Moving on, Reliance Industries is among the top buzzing stocks today. Shares of the company rose over 3% today and hit a lifetime high of Rs 1,947 on the BSE, after it announced the sale of 0.15% stake in Jio Platforms to Qualcomm Ventures for Rs 7.3 billion.

Shares of the company hit an all-time high of Rs 1,947, pushing its market capitalisation over Rs 12.09 trillion, a record for an Indian company.

On Sunday, Qualcomm Ventures, the investment arm of Qualcomm Inc., said it will invest Rs 7.3 billion in Jio Platforms, becoming the 12th entity to invest in the digital services subsidiary of Reliance Industries in over three months.

3 Tech Stocks to Boost Your Wealth

Technology. That's where the growth is.

That's why we believe, it's time to load up on 3 specific tech stocks.

We've spent years to vet these stocks.

And our research says... these 3 cutting edge tech stocks could potentially create a wave of Indian millionaires.

Click here for the full details...

The stock of the specialty chemical was trading at its fresh 52-week high level. In the past three months, it has rallied 106%.

For the previous financial year 2019-20, the company had reported a more-than-double net profit at Rs 710 million, compared to Rs 300 million in the corresponding previous year (FY19).

Clariant Chemicals share price is presently trading up by 14%.

Moving on to news from the banking sector, shares of Yes Bank declined 17% in the intra-day trade today, on the back of heavy volumes after the bank on Friday fixed floor price for its proposed follow-on public offer (FPO) at Rs 12 per share and a cap of Rs 13 per unit.

The fundraising is important for the bank to boost its capital base, especially after it announced last month that it has failed to make interest payments on its bonds, after the RBI said its capital adequacy ratio was below regulatory ratio.

On a reported book value basis, Yes Bank's FPO is priced below its FY20 book value and the 50% discount to current market price seems to partly capture the future pain. However, reports state that on adjusted book value basis, the FPO is priced at above 1x.

According to reports, though the discount suggests that there could be some short-term gains, valuations are not significantly attractive. Also, Yes Bank's asset quality concern, which could aggravate due to Covid-19-led economic disruptions, offer little comfort.

Meanwhile, the market regulator may look into a large amount of share transaction of the private lender under the Securities Lending and Borrowing Mechanism (SLBM) on July 9.

These transactions took place a day prior to the announcement of the bank's floor price for its FPO.

In other news, the Enforcement Directorate (ED) is expected to file the second prosecution complaint in the Yes Bank money laundering case today.

The agency may file the complaint against 13 individuals and entities including Dewan Housing Finance (DHFL) promoters Kapil and Dheeraj Wadhawan.

Earlier this month, the ED provisionally attached properties worth Rs 24 billon belonging to Yes Bank co-founder Rana Kapoor and the Wadhawan brothers.

A blue-chip stock with crorepati potential

Over the last year, Equitymaster's top research analysts have been holding closed door meetings every week.

In one of these meetings, our co-head of research and blue-chip expert, Tanushree Banerjee zeroed in on a powerful new opportunity.

It involves a blue-chip stock that is a key player in the driverless vehicle market.

This stock has all the traits to qualify it as a 'crorepati stock' and right now, it's available dirt-cheap.

In the coming years, this stock could potentially turn a small stake into a huge fortune... but only if you get in right now.

For full details on this stock, go here.

The investigating agency has also raided the premises of travel company Cox and Kings and recorded statements of its founder Peter Kerkar and media baron Subhash Chandra in this case.

Yes Bank share price is presently trading down by 11%.

Speaking of the banking sector, note that 2019 was brutal for some banking stocks.

The market has severely punished them. This is due to issues such as worsening asset-quality, corporate governance, and inadequate capital.

Stocks such as Yes Bank and Lakshmi Vilas Bank are down more than 70%.

Falling Knives in the Banking Sector

Falling stock prices could be enticing. After all, we love deep discounts and good bargains.

But if you're thinking of buying these stocks it's important to remember this point - If a stock is in a falling spree, there's probably a good reason behind it.

And realising this in a falling market is the first step towards correcting one's investing process.
