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

Reliance Industries: Sovereign wealth fund Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) has agreed to invest 8,278 crore ($1 billion) into the retail arm of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), marking a fresh round of investments into Reliance Retail Ventures Ltd (RRVL) after the country’s largest retailer raised 47,265 crore in 2021. QIA’s investment values RRVL at 8.28 trillion or $100 billion, twice its 4.21 trillion valuation in 2021. QIA’s investment will translate into a 0.99% stake in RRVL on a fully diluted basis, RRVL said on Wednesday.

GAIL India: State-owned Gail India plans a capital expenditure of 30,000 crore, mainly in pipelines, petrochemical projects and city gas distribution, over the next three years. The company's total capital expenditure for FY23 was 10,000 crore. We are targeting to incur a capex 30,000 crore in the next 3 years, mainly on pipelines, ongoing petrochemical projects, CGD projects, operational capex, equity contribution in group companies etc.," said Gail CMD Sandeep Kumar Gupta while addressing the shareholders at the AGM.

Coforge: Promoter Hulst BV intends to divest its 26.63% ownership in Coforge through a block deal, as reported by sources to CNBC Awaaz. The established floor price for this transaction stands at 4,550 per share, representing a 7.4% reduction compared to the closing price of 4,913 on the previous Wednesday. Hulst BV, a company registered in the Netherlands, is under the ownership and influence of funds associated with BPEA. Reportedly, Hulst BV plans to offer 1.62 crore shares, resulting in an estimated transaction value of around 7,400 crore.

Shree Renuka/EID Parry/Balrampur Chini: India is expected to ban mills from exporting sugar in the next season beginning October, halting shipments for the first time in seven years, as a lack of rain has cut cane yields, three government sources said. India's absence from the world market would be likely to increase benchmark prices in New York and London that are already trading around multi-year highs, triggering fears of further inflation on global food markets.

Procter & Gamble Health: In Q4FY23, P&G Health disclosed a net profit of 29.8 crore, marking a 28% decline in comparison to the corresponding period of the previous year. This decrease was attributed to elevated material costs and a singular employee cost. Despite this, the company observed a 1.8% year-on-year growth in revenue from operations, reaching 301.2 crore in the quarter. Additionally, the company declared a final dividend of 50 per share for the fiscal year concluding in June 2023.
