What experts say on Adani stocks surge?
Mukesh Jain, director, Maverick Share Brokers Pvt, told Bloomberg,“Arguments in India’s Supreme Court and the report of the US government’s view of Hindenburg has triggered a rally in these shares while the overall market has also been on a strong footing. I expect this momentum to hold.”
Alok Churiwala, managing director at Mumbai-based Churiwala Securities Pvt, said that the investor sentiment had taken the hit following the short-steller broadside and there were doubts over their corporate disclosures.
“But the group has managed to allay investor concerns about the points raised by Hindenburg,” he added.
