According to data from AMFI and ICICI Direct, mutual funds invested over $1 billion in July, and their biggest purchases included
Zomato’s purchases came after the stock experienced a major correction after the lock-in period ended in July, resulting in a 22% correction.
Another interesting entry into the list is Wipro, which missed analyst estimates in terms of growth and margin. Its rivals TCS and Infosys have seen mixed movements, with some fund houses paring their stakes while others have added.
Overall, the Indian mutual fund industry invested ₹8,900 crore into Indian equities in July, down from ₹15,500 crore in June.

Mutual funds are buying more of financial services and retail stocks. Out of them $SBICARD.NSE Stock looks the best to me because of it's strong Q1 result. Net profit of the company in march 2022 was ₹2172 crore and ₹1324 crore in the year ago march 2021. The company has delivered good profit growth of 34.1% CAGR over last 5 years. Sbi cards started FY23 on a strong note with robust growth in spends & customer acquisition & I beleive this will be sustain in future. The festival season which begins soon will add to the profits! So fundamentally SBI cards is strong Now let's talk about technical view After hitting 52 week low of rs 655.70 stock makes a reversal and right now it's trading at 900-950 levels major support of the stock is at 900-905 Rs if goes below we see some correction but if it takes a support from this level it will give us a good return. We can see the levels of ₹1000 & ₹1150+ Note: This is for educational purposes, I’m not a registered analyst.— (@financialadda) August 19, 2022
