Let’s take a quick look at what happened on Dalal Street today.
Led by gains in ICICI Bank, L&T and Kotak Mahindra Bank, Sensex scored more than 150 points to finish on a new record Monday. Amid sustained inflows of foreign funds and a largely positive trend in global markets, Sensex closed at 46,253 while Nifty closed at a record 13,558.15.
ONGC was the largest asset in the Sensex package with an increase of approximately 5 percent, followed by L&T, NTPC, ICICI Bank, Sun Pharma, HCL Tech, Titan and Kotak Mahindra Bank.
On the other hand, M&M, Bajaj Auto, Tech Mahindra and Bajaj Finserv were among the laggards.
Mid and small cap indices outperformed their large cap indices. Meanwhile, Burger King shares made a remarkable debut on stock exchanges. The script settled 131 percent higher at Rs 138.40 at the issue price of Rs 60. Going forward, Ms. Bectors’ IPO will open Tuesday.
