Bulk & Block Deals

AU Small Finance Bank share price will be in focus after around 27 million equity shares representing 9.3% of total equity of AU Small Finance Bank have changed hands on the BSE, the exchange data shows. On an average sub 40,000 shares were traded daily in past two weeks.

Last month, on July 13, 2018, World Bank arm International Finance Corporation (IFC) sold 12 million shares of AU Small Finance Bank for Rs 7.6 billion through an open market transaction.

Our team of Equitymaster analysts have been working on a project to track the smartest minds in value investing. They have compiled a special report on them, called The Superinvestors of India.

Now, because of insights from these interactions, the team has glued their eyes on insider activity and bulk and block deals...

As per them...

Oil Prices

Oil prices dipped on Tuesday as rising trade tensions dented the outlook for fuel demand growth especially in Asia, although U.S. sanctions against Iran still pointed towards tighter supply.

Front-month Brent crude oil futures LCOc1 were at US$72.60 per barrel, down by 21 cents, or 0.3 percent from their last close.

US West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude futures CLc1 were down 5 cents at US$67.58 per barrel.

Signs of slowing economic growth and lower fuel demand increases, especially in Asia's large emerging markets are weighing on the oil markets.

Results Corner

Cadila Healthcare, Oil India, Tata Chemicals, Cochin Shipyard are among few companies that will report its Q1FY19 results today.
