The MSCI has announced its latest index review, set to take effect at market close on May 31, 2024. These reviews, which reflect changes in the market value of constituent stocks, often lead to significant trading activity. This time, 42 securities will be added and 121 removed from the all-country world index, marking substantial adjustments in the market landscape.

Among the notable additions to the MSCI emerging markets index is India's Canara Bank (NS: CNBK ), set to become one of the three largest inclusions. This inclusion is expected to attract a considerable inflow of institutional funds. Canara Bank, boasting a market capitalization of INR 1,03,224 crore, has been a standout performer over the past year, delivering an impressive 91% return. Investors can also look forward to a dividend payout of INR 3.22 per share in June 2024.

However, a potential concern is the stock’s current trading price. Canara Bank's fair value is calculated at INR 110.7, while it is trading at INR 114.5, indicating a slight overvaluation. This suggests that buying on dips could be a more strategic approach for potential investors.
