Weekly News letter and stocks to watch out for.

>> Sunday, April 12, 2009

The Indian benchmark indices touched its five month high at the beginning of the week on the back of positive global cues which continued till mid- week.

On the last trading day of the truncated week, weak IIP numbers and a marginal decline in headline inflation numbers fuelled volatility ahead of the long weekend. Yet, the markets managed to end with a gain of close to 5 per cent.

Better than expected sales numbers for March 2009 led to buying interest at auto counters. Reliance Industrial Infrastructure shot up by as much as 157% during the week for no apparent reason, while Essar Oil Ltd rose by 65% as it is expected to close the Kenya Petroleum Refinery deal in Mombasa.

Markets worldwide appear to be harbouring a positive sentiment on the back of expectations that the economic stimulus packages undertaken worldwide will bear soon fruit.

Inflation is now at 30 years low.

Sectors I am bullish on.

  • Automobile.
  • Telecom.
  • IT
  • Textile
