A $43 bn jump in Gautam Adani’s fortune is fraught with many risks

A rally in the stocks of companies controlled by Indian billionaire Gautam Adani has added almost $43 billion to his wealth this year, catapulting him to the spot of the second-richest person in Asia. Some analysts say the gains are fraught with risk. Adani’s net worth of $76.7 billion got a boost from a 330% jump in Adani Total Gas Ltd., a 235% rise in his conglomerate’s flagship Adani Enterprises Ltd. and a 263% increase in Adani Transmission Ltd. this year. Adani group stocks, especially these three, “look extended," Bloomberg Intelligence analysts Gaurav Patankar and Nitin Chanduka wrote in a 10 June note after analyzing technical indicators.

India’s wind power sector wants rival solar to help drive growth

India’s struggling wind power industry is looking to its clean energy rival for help emerging from a pandemic-induced slump.

About half of the 20 gigawatts of wind power the nation is expected to add through 2025 will come in the form of hybrid projects that combine turbines with solar panels, according to a new report by the Global Wind Energy Council and MEC Intelligence. An existing pipeline of about 10.3 gigawatts of projects will make up the rest.

The outlook is brighter than the recent past, which saw the nation install less than 4 gigawatts of wind power in 2019 and 2020 combined. India’s wind industry, which has about 40 gigawatts of capacity now, has been struggling for the past few years due to land challenges, which hindered projects as well transmission lines.

Oil extends drop with rising US fuel stockpiles denting rally

Oil extended declines as rising U.S. fuel stockpiles punctured the optimism on demand that drove crude to the highest since 2018 this week.

Futures in New York fell 0.7% after slipping back below $70 a barrel Wednesday.

A rolling average of demand ticked lower for the first time in a month, adding to the bearish sentiment.
