Foreign institutional investors pump in $387 million in stock markets

The strong surge in FII inflows has helped boost the equity market this year as the stock exchange barometer index Sensex has gained 12.33% so far this year

Foreign institutional investors (FIIs) pumped in $387 million (about Rs1,982 crore) in the Indian stock markets last week, taking the year-to-date total to a massive $8,992.90 million (Rs44,686.40 crore) this year.

During 19th and 22nd March 2012, FIIs were gross buyers of shares worth Rs3,487.50 crore, while they sold equities amounting to Rs2,835.80 crore, translating into a net investment of Rs651.70 crore, according to data available with market regulator SEBI.

FIIs have infused a net amount of $1,828.02 million (about Rs9,116.80 crore) during March, taking the total for 2012 so far to $8,992.90 billion in Indian stocks.

So far this year, the foreign fund houses have infused $4,566.30 million in debt market (about Rs23,366.30 crore).

The strong surge in FII inflows has helped boost the equity market this year as the stock exchange barometer index Sensex has gained 12.33% so far this year.
The surge in the 30-share benchmark index is despite the fact that there was a fall of around 3.25% in January. Going forward, FII fund flows are likely to remain bullish, believe marketmen. “Fund flows are still positive and the way the quantitative easing has been done inflows to emerging markets like India are likely to remain strong,” Ashika Stock Brokers Research head Paras Bothra said.

Commenting on the effect of Budget 2012-13 on FII inflows, he added, “Budget was a complete wash-out and in a global landscape, Budget does not hold that much importance at present.”

FIIs had mostly stayed away from Indian equities in the year 2011. They flocked towards the debt markets last year with a net investments of Rs20,293 crore, while pulling out Rs2,812 crore from equities.

India is a relatively better investment destination for FIIs and manufacturers. Far better than the flat or even negative Greece.
The Indian market was overheated and needed correction. No point in the media hype. Industry and financial sector are doing well SSBJ declares an interim 145%, so also others both in the private and public sector.
Kingfisher and scams are aberrations pure and simple and are not here to stay, they'll soon change for the better.
