Capsule – 09 Oct: Bulk Deals and Delivery Volume Shockers!


We are starting a new “Capsule” series which will come to you on a regular basis, of data that is revealed in the markets but needs to be collated, cleaned and filtered to make tradeable sense. We’d love your feedback.

Here is a summary of Bulk Deal transactions in this week. A Bulk deal is a trade, where total quantity bought or sold is more than 0.5% of the number of equity shares of the company.

The snapshot below excludes the Intra Day Trade, Promoter Exchange and Deals which are not significant in terms of Stock price or Deal value.

Bulk 09102015

  • Arvind Infrastructure – Ace Investor Porinju Veliyath, MD & Portfolio Manager – Equity Intelligence has bought stocks worth 0.9 Cr. The stock recently tasted its 52 week high of Rs. 80 (7-Oct-15).
  • Shree Pushkar Chemicals – M.B. Agarwal and H.D Agarwal have netted a little over 0.15 Cr. though this transaction alone. They had amassed over 6 lakh shares at an avg. price of 63.47 on 10/11-Sep and now have sold 2.65 lakh shares at a price of 69.18.
  • Tamil Nadu NewsprintHDFC Mutual Fund has sold 2% of its holding to Sundaram BNP Paribas thereby bringing its shareholding now down to 7%.

Delivery Volume Shockers!

We have compiled a list of those stocks which have seen massive increases in the “deliverable quantity to traded quantity %”.

Stocks are traded every day and most stocks see intraday trading (buy and sell on the same day). Intraday trades don’t result in delivery – if a two people buy and sell from each other and square off within the day, there will be volume, but no actual shares will change hands.

Delivery volumes as a percentage of total volume shows us how much of the stock is traded versus held for more than a day. It’s not very useful to use this data to trade per se.

But what is useful is if the delivery percentage JUMPS. If a stock is thinly delivered (say 30% delivery) and jumps up to 80% delivery then we are likely to be seeing some action in that stock because either a big buyer is in or a big seller is.

Listed below, are the Top 25 for today (9th Oct 2015):
