Reliance Industries chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani and Adani Group promoter Gautam Adani are the two biggest beneficiaries of the rally in the stock markets since Friday.

Both these groups are perceived to be close to BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, who is widely expected to form the government when the Lok Sabha election results are announced on May 16.

Reliance shares have risen 9.2% since Friday, meaning the value of the promoter group shareholding (45.3%) has soared by Rs 12,898 crore to Rs 1.55 lakh crore.

However, if the Rs 1,062-crore value of the 3.73% shareholding of Petroleum Trust, that forms part of the promoter group but doesn’t belong to the Ambani family, is taken into account, the rise in the promoter group’s net worth is lower at Rs 11,836 crore.

The shares of the three listed Adani Group companies —Adani Enterprises, Adani Ports & SEZ and Adani Power — have also shot up sharply since Friday. Adani Enterprises, which has risen 17.3% over these four session, has added Rs 5,975 to the promoter group’s fortune.

Adani Ports (up 13.7%) and Adani Power (16.1%) have added Rs 4,062 crore and Rs 1,011 crore, respectively, and the Adani family is worth Rs 11,050 crore more than it was on Friday morning.

But it was the public sector Bank of Baroda which was the biggest beneficiary of the rally since Friday. It has shot up 18.7% from Rs 808 to Rs 959. ICICI Bank and Axis Bank also gained.

“If there is an improvement in the economy, then banking stocks will be the first to gain,” said Rikesh Parikh, vice-president, Motilal Oswal Financial Services, about the rise in banking stocks.
