Here are the top 10 stocks that could be in focus in today's trade:

Maruti Suzuki: Maruti Suzuki India, the largest passenger car manufacturer in the country, reported a standalone net profit of 2,485.1 crore in the quarter ended June 2023. The company’s net profit jumped by a robust 145% as compared to 1,012.8 crore in the same quarter last year. This was on account of larger sales volume, improved realization, cost reduction efforts and higher non-operating income. However, the company’s net profit declined sequentially from 2,623.6 crore in the March quarter.

Bharti Airtel: Bharti Airtel Ltd prepaid 8,024 crore ahead of schedule to clear part of its deferred liabilities for the spectrum acquired in 2015 as part of a plan to save costs. “The said instalments had an interest rate of 10% and have been prepaid by Airtel, leveraging much lower cost financing available to it," the telco said in a statement on Monday, noting that the amount was paid to the Department of Telecommunications. Airtel continues to enjoy access to well-diversified sources of capital or financing, allowing it to have enhanced financial flexibility in its capital structure.

State Bank of India: India's largest lender State Bank of India (SBI) announced on Monday that it raised 10,000 crore after issuing 15-year infrastructure bonds at the coupon rate of 7.54%. The bank said that the proceeds will be directed towards bolstering long-term resources for funding critical infrastructure projects and supporting the affordable housing segment. SBI said that the bank attracted bids of Rs. 21,698 crores, a staggering 4.34 times the base issue size, indicating robust demand for these financial instruments.

Castrol's revenue from operations increased 7.4% to 13.34 billion.

Dhanlaxmi Bank: Private sector Dhanlaxmi Bank on Monday recorded a net profit of 28.30 crore in the April-June quarter, mainly due to a decline in bad loans.
