Reasons for the Decrease in Stock Prices
Higher interest rates are a straightforward solution. Inflation has begun to increase following years of loose money policies and low-interest rates. The US Fed has started a plan of gradual rate hikes. In turn, this may deflate the price of growth stocks. The impact on the businesses in the Adani group is already apparent. Growth stocks are companies that are now making large investments in order to gain rewards later. These businesses may or may not be successful right now, but they aspire to do so in the future. So growth stock value declines when interest rates rise.
For this reason, an environment of rising interest rates like the current one is more detrimental to growth stocks like Adani. Value equities are prioritized above growth stocks in such a situation. Of course, there may be further explanations for the decline in Adani stock prices.
