Indian billionaire Gautam Adani now has 7 listed companies giving an excellent returns to its investors
The shares of Adani Group companies skyrocketed in the last 2 years.
Gautam Adani is currently the 9th richest person in the world. As of June 14 2022, Adani has a net worth of $93 billion. The majority of Adani’s wealth has come in the year 2021. He is the co-founder and chairman of Adani Group, which is involved in the business of port management, electric power generation & transmission, renewable energy, mining, airport operations, natural gas, food processing, and infrastructure.
The Group has seven publicly listed companies- Adani Enterprises Ltd, Adani Green Energy Ltd, Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone Ltd, Adani Power Ltd, Adani transmission Ltd, Adani Total Gas Ltd, and Adani Wilmar Ltd; with a market capitalization of Rs 2.41 lakh crore, Rs 2.89 lakh crore, Rs 1.49 lakh crore, Rs 1.07 lakh crore, Rs 2.35 lakh crore, Rs 2.59 lakh crore, and Rs 80,000 crore, respectively.
The shares of Adani Enterprises Ltd had skyrocketed in the last 2 years, delivering a return of 1330% returns for its investors. Today, the shares are trading more than 5% up for the day. Adani Green Energy Ltd’s share price has also 10x in the last two years.
Another spectacular return by Adani Group company; the shares of Adani Total Gas Ltd were trading at Rs 126 on June 15 2020. However, on June 14 2022, the shares are trading at Rs 2366, an 18-fold stock move in just 2 years. In the same period, the shares of Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone Ltd and Adani Power Ltd also provided 110% and 648%, respectively.
These insane returns shown by the Adani Group companies in recent times surely entertain the idea that Adani is currently the darling billionaire of the Indian stock market. However, one can argue whether these sharp stock price moves in the Adani Group Companies are sustainable. The major criticism Adani Group faces is about its aggressiveness in raising debt to capture in-organic business growth through M&A actions.
