Back

Adani group stocks have been a topic of interest in the financial world due to the company's rapid growth and diversification into various industries.

However, the company has also faced criticism and controversy. For instance, the latest Adani-Hindenburg saga.

The US-based short-seller released a long-report, criticizing the Adani group at a time when the company’s flagship firm Adani Enterprises was on its way to garner 200 billion (bn) via a follow-on public offer (FPO).

The markets became so unpredictable after the report was released. Take a look at the table below to see the performance of Adani group stocks post release of the report.

Our fundamental research effort has never recommended an Adani stock. So, we are looking from the sidelines.

We recently wrote on the Adani group, bringing readers up to the latest developments.

These editorial pieces bring together all the latest updates on Adani stocks, including articles and videos that provide a comprehensive overview of the companies and its impact on the stock market. 

Let’s start with the most important one…that is examining whether you should buy the dip in Adani group stocks.

Time to Buy the Dip in Adani Group Stocks?

Lead smallcap analyst at Equitymaster Richa Agarwal wrote to her readers discussing whether it’s time to buy Adani stocks, now that the bad news is factored in the prices…

Here’s what she wrote:

Would I consider buying the dip in Adani group stocks?

Well, as you would have guessed, I would not.

For one, I don't think a tiger changes its stripes. The group doesn't have a good reputation when it comes to corporate governance. While markets may have neglected that at times, I would not. I may convert if there is a drastic change at the promoter and management level. But that seems unlikely for now.

Second, despite the correction, the valuations of Adani group stocks still don't make any sense to me, given the fundamentals they have. Most of these stocks are still riding the narratives in my view, while the business remains overleveraged.

Rahul Shah on the Adani stocks selloff…

Our deep value guru and Co-head of Research at Equitymaster Rahul Shah examined whether there are any Adani group stocks that look attractive post the meltdown.

Here’s Rahul:

Have any of the Adani group companies managed to put up a performance that would force me to change my view?

I don't think so. Those with weak fundamentals like Adani Power or Adani Green Energy have scarcely managed to improve them while the ones that were expensive like Adani Total Gas or Adani Ports, don't look cheap even after the recent fall.

In view of this, I am not inclined to keep any of the group company stocks on my watchlist for now.

Rahul is still playing the waiting game...

Here’s a list of our recent top editorials on Adani group

 

Track fundamentals and valuations of Adani group companies

As things stand now, the selloff in Adani group stocks has intensified after Credit Suisse and Citigroup have stopped accepting bonds of Adani companies as collateral for margin loans.

The mega FPO is also withdrawn. The FPO was fully subscribed on the third day despite shares of the company closing at a 5%-10% discount to the FPO price band. 

"For me, the interest of my investors is paramount and everything is secondary. Hence to insulate the investors from potential losses we have withdrawn the FPO," Adani said in a message to shareholders.

The Adani-Hindenburg story is going to keep the markets busy for a long time to come...

In the meantime, you could quickly refer to both fundamentals and valuations of Adani group stocks on Equitymaster's Indian stock screener.

We recently added a new section in the screener where you can view the fundamentals of companies within a business group in one screen. This should help you get a better grip on fundamentals, business group wise.
