However, from record-high gains in Q4FY22, the ace investor has registered a significant decline in his wealth since then due to market volatility. In the April – June 2022 quarter, Jhunjhunwala’s wealth declined by a whopping nearly 25%.

As per Trendlyne data, Jhunjhunwala’s portfolio wealth dipped by at least 24.67% to 25,425.88 crore in the June 2022 quarter compared to the previous quarter.

Jhunjhunwala’s buying and selling in the above stocks will soon be revealed as the listed companies announce their shareholding pattern for the quarter ending June 2022. It will be keenly watched whether Jhunjhunwala added a new stock to his portfolio amidst a deep bearish market tone.

On the market weekly outlook, Yesha Shah, Head of Equity Research, Samco Securities said, “Market is expected to remain volatile due to a slew of market-moving events. On the macroeconomic front, investors will be watching FOMC minutes to see where the economy is headed. Furthermore, global markets would be influenced by China’s inflation figures, which are due next week. Back home, the first quarter of fiscal year 23 earnings season will drive market sentiment and stock-specific actions. Investors should pay careful attention to management commentary and select solid fundamental companies in order to focus on the long-term picture.”
