SBI Life Insurance, UPL, Hindalco, Tata Steel, Power Grid, Grasim, Hero MotoCorp, and Cipla were top stocks to see more than 1% increase in FII capture in -QoQ.
DII holdings in Nifty stocks have skyrocketed in BPCL, Bajaj Auto, IndusInd Bank, and SBI Life Insurance – more than 1% on QoQ basis.

“If the COVID limits are long-term (over 45 days) we could see a shift in the targeted allocation to foreign-focused sectors such as IT and Pharma,” Atish Matlawala, Sr Analyst, told SSJ Finance & Securities.

“Consumer opinion will also hit a high note as low-income earners are becoming more confident because of COVID. However, we expect this to be temporary and when growth returns we expect FIIs to invest heavily in Banks and Metals, ”he added.
