Top Stocks in Focus Today

Among the buzzing stocks today will be Yes Bank.

In a big relief to Yes Bank, the supreme court on 30 November 2021 stayed the Uttar Pradesh Police order, freezing the lender's voting rights in the Dish TV annual general meeting.

A bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud took serious exception to police action in a corporate matter and also stayed the investigation until further orders.

'We cannot permit police officers sitting in Gautam Buddha Nagar to freeze voting rights of a shareholder', the bench said. 'The police here did what even the National Company Law Tribunal did not do (freeze shares and voting rights).'

Senior Counsel Abhishek Manu Singhvi, representing Yes Bank, essentially questioned the validity of the police notice issued earlier last month, asking the bank to not act on the shares, that is to say not to sell the shares or even carry out voting rights that come attached with the ownership of the shares.

Terming the notice as an 'extraordinary ingenious misuse of the criminal law', Singhvi alleged that the notice of freeze on voting rights came at an opportune time only to prevent the bank, as the largest shareholder, from voting in the annual general meeting.

If Yes Bank votes during the Dish TV AGM, it may vote to change or refuse to reappoint directors. This, the bank contends, is a primary reason behind police action against the bank coming just ahead of the AGM.

The civil proceedings that were initiated by Essel group against the bank were withdrawn earlier this year, however, the 'FIR filed in the case had been languishing since August 2020' saw police action over a year later.

Remarking on this, the court said that there cannot be short-circuiting of the judicial process by using police action.

Using criminal procedure to achieve results of civil proceedings will have dangerous consequences, the supreme court bench observed.

Go Fashion share price will also be in focus today.

Go Colors brand operator Go Fashion saw a stellar debut on the bourses on 30 November 2021 as the stock listed at a whopping 90% premium over the issue price of Rs 690 per share.

It opened at Rs 1,316 on the BSE and at Rs 1,310 on the NSE.

The maiden public offer of the women's bottom-wear brand operator had seen tremendous response from investors as the offer was subscribed 135.46 times.

It saw the biggest demand from non-institutional investors, who bid for shares 262.08 times the portion set aside for them.

Qualified institutional investors had put in bids 100.73 times the reserved portion, and retail investors subscribed for 49.70 times the reserved portion.

Go Fashion has mopped up Rs 10.1 bn through its public issue that comprised a fresh issue of Rs 1.3 bn and an offer for sale (OFS) of Rs 8.9 bn.

The funds from the fresh issue will be utilised to roll out 120 exclusive brand outlets, and meeting working capital requirements.
