Adani Enterprises hits new 52-week high on report it may replace Wipro on BSE Sensex

IIFL Alternative Research projects Adani Enterprises' inclusion in the Sensex, potentially leading to significant inflows. It forecasts ₹1,000 crore inflows if Adani Enterprises joins Sensex. The BSE is expected to announce its index reconfiguration tomorrow.

Shares of Adani Enterprises, the flagship company of Adani Group, surged 7.5% to reach a new 52-week high of 3,377.50 apiece in today's trading session. This notable upswing came in the wake of insights provided by IIFL Alternative Research, suggesting the prospective inclusion of Adani Enterprises in the Sensex, potentially displacing Wipro from its current position.

IIFL Alternative Research indicated that the inclusion of Adani Enterprises in the Sensex could lead to inflows of nearly 1,000 crore from passive funds tracking the index. Conversely, Wipro's exclusion is expected to result in outflows of approximately 500 crore, it said. 

The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) is likely to announce its semi-annual index reconfiguration tomorrow, with adjustments scheduled to take effect on June 21. If Adani Enterprises is included, it will mark the first time a company from the Gautam Adani-led Adani Group being a part of the 30-share BSE index.

Additionally, IIFL Alternative Research mentioned potential changes to the BSE 100 index. Jio Financial Services, Adani Green Energy, REC, Adani Power, and Adani Energy Solutions could potentially replace Page Industries, SBI Cards and Payment Services, ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, Zee Entertainment Enterprises, and Jubilant FoodWorks.

Meanwhile, the company's shares have rebounded sharply from their February 2023 low of 1,017.45 apiece, currently trading 228% higher than that level.

The group's market capitalisation in the previous trading session touched 16.9 lakh crore after its listed companies gained 11,300 crore as investors expressed confidence in the company amid its denial of any wrongdoing in the supply of coal to a Tamil Nadu power company.

Yesterday's gains coincided with a report from the London-based Financial Times, citing documents from the George Soros-backed Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP), which alleged that the Adani Group committed fraud in 2013 by selling low-grade coal as high-value fuel.

Earlier this month, the company reported a 37% decline in the net profit for the March quarter, primarily due to input material costs more than doubling.

The consolidated net profit for January–March 2023–24 stood at 450.58 crore, compared to 722.48 crore in the same period last year and 1,888.45 crore in the preceding quarter.
