12 Stocks Where Promoter Stake Increased In March Qtr But Stock Price Crashed

Roshni Agarwal

The promoter shareholding in a company is an important aspect that one cannot overlook if one is considering an investment in a particular stock. Also, when reading the shareholding pattern, one needs to compare the pattern for the quarter with the previous quarter so as to analyze how holdings have changed over a period.

In a general sense, any increase in promoter holding in an entity is seen to be positive highlighting confidence of promoter and promoter group in the company. Sometimes the course is taken i.e. promoter holding is increased so as to boost market sentiment in the stock when the stock prices remain on the lower side.

Also, there are times when promoters use any correction in the stock price as opportunity for upping their stake in the company.

Below are listed some 12 stocks as compiled by LKP Securities which despite increase in promoter shareholding during March quarter saw their prices cash steeply:
