Why Shares Of HDFC Twins Are Tanking Today After Hitting 52-Week High On Thursday

Shares of HDFC Bank and HDFC slumped down over 5% today. Both the stocks hit 52-week highs yesterday after HDFC’s earnings blew past street estimates.

What Happened: Global index provider Morgan Stanley Capital International (MSCI) told its clients that it intends to add the merged entity HDFC Bank to the large-cap segment of MSCI Global Standard Indexes, with an adjustment factor of 0.5. This adjustment is lower than street estimates of 1.

The revision could results in a outflow of $150 million as against an inflow of $3 billion that was earlier expected. Now experts are speculating that other index providers will also follow suit.
