Here is the list of top 10 stocks that will be in focus today

ONGC: ONGC on Friday reported a tripling of net profit in the June quarter as it earned record prices before the government slapped a tax on windfall profits arising from a global rally in energy rates. Oil and Natural Gas Corporation's (ONGC) standalone net profit at 15,205.85 crore, or 12.09 per share, in April-June, compared to 4,334.75 crore, or 3.45 a share, in the same period a year back, according to a stock exchange filing by the company. Sequentially, the profit was higher than the 8,859.54 crore net profit of January-March.

LIC: Life Insurance Corporation in its maiden earnings after going public has reported a multi-fold jump in net profit at 682.89 crore from the paltry 2.94 crore a year ago. The nation's largest financial powerhouse that manages assets in excess of 41 lakh crore had gone public in early May with a 20,500 crore share sale. The insurer's profit rose manifold despite lower margins, which the management attributed to a changing product mix and booking less than 50% of the profit from equity which plunged to 5,076 crore from 11,368 crore in June 2021.

HDFC Bank: Fair trade regulator Competition Commission of India (CCI) has approved the merger proposal of HDFC Bank and its parent HDFC Ltd. The proposed combination envisages the merger of HDFC Investments and HDFC Holdings with HDFC Ltd in the first step and subsequently, the merger of HDFC Ltd into HDFC Bank.

Suzlon Energy: Suzlon Group feels the financial difficulties that afflicted the wind turbine maker are behind it, with the over 3,000-crore debt refinance led by REC. The Pune-based company, which once struggled to pay its over 6,500 crore debt, feels its order book, the pipeline of potential business and government policies are other tailwinds that will offer support, a senior official has said. It is looking to raise up to 1,200 crore through a rights issue of shares by the fiscal-end to pare the refinanced debt of 3,000 crore, its Chief Financial Officer Himanshu Mody told PTI.

BPCL: State-owned Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd (BPCL) will invest 1.4 lakh crore in petrochemicals, city gas and clean energy in the next five years as it looks to non-fuel businesses for growth.
