Adani Ports and SEZ Limited (APSEZ) became the first company from the Adani Group’s 10-stock portfolio to return to the ‘pre-Hindenburg levels.’ The APSEZ stock touched an intra-day high of ₹795.65 on Tuesday, higher than the closing of ₹761.2 on January 24, 2023, quoted a day before the stock’s free fall.

After January 25, the Nifty-50 stock APSEZ along with all other Adani Group stocks had lost heavily after the US-based shortseller Hindenburg Research released a damning report about the group questioning its financial and corporate governance practices.

On Tuesday, APSEZ stocks gained by over 8 per cent before cooling off to trade with modest gains of 1 per cent on NSE. The investors’ confidence was seen returning to the counter after the findings of the Supreme Court-appointed committee gave a clean chit to the regulatory aspect on the allegations of price manipulations by Adani Group. APSEZ traded with volumes of over 3.4 million shares.
