Real Estate & Construction stocks are trading mixed with Supreme Infrastructure and IVRCL leading the gains. DLF is planning to monetize commercial assets worth Rs 30 bn to overcome liquidity concerns. Big investors like GIC of Singapore, Blackstone etc are being approached by DLF to off load some part of its commercial inventory which stands at 30 m square feet spread across cities in India. Considering that the company is facing SEBI ban on raising funds from capital markets if it is able to get a good deal on its rent yielding portfolio concerns over liquidity may get allayed to an extent.
