FIIs invest Rs 18,000 cr in Indian stocks in Dec

S V Krishnamachari, Bangalore, Dec 24, 2012, DHNS:

Foreign Institutional Investors (FIIs) have been as bullish on India in 2012 as in 2010, having invested Rs 1,21,652 crore ($23billion) in India in calendar year 2012 (as on December 21), with investments in December at Rs 18,380 crore, or $3.4billion.

Statistics gleaned from market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) show that FIIs bought equities worth Rs 57,023 crore in December and sold Rs 38,644 crore, a net investment of Rs 18,380 crore. They have been net buyers for most part of 2012 except in April, May and June, according to Sebi data. The 30-scrip benchmark BSE index – Sensex – was at 17,430 points on June 29, 2012 and on December 21, it closed at 19,242 points. 
 
FIIs had invested Rs 1,33,266.3 crore in calendar year 2010, but the net investment in 2011 was negative, which means they were net sellers at Rs 2,714.20 crore. The total investment in calendar year 2012 till date at Rs 1,21,652 crore is about 24 per cent less than the combined investment of Rs 1,60,988.9 crore between calendar years 2008 to 2011. The number of FIIs registered a decline this year; as on December 21, there were 1,755 compared to 1,767 in 2011.  In 2010, there were 1,718 FIIs.

On the foreign direct investment (FDI) front, investments into India were up 67 per cent in October to $1.94 billion, but inflows for the current financial year were still down. Total FDI inflows in the first seven months for the current fiscal year that began in April were down 42% from a year earlier at $14.79 billion.

The BSE Sensex fell 75 points, or 0.4 per cent during the week ended December 21, 2012. The 50-unit S&P CNX Nifty declined 32 points, or 0.5 per cent, to close at 5,848. The BSE Mid-Cap index was down 0.02 per cent and the BSE Small-Cap index fell 0.4 percent.
The Sensex has moved up by 24.5 per cent in calendar 2012 as on December 21, 2012, up from 15,517 points on January 2, 2012.
