The BSE benchmark Sensex today recovered from its six-week low level to close 158 points higher, ending three days of losing string, after S&P's upgraded India's outlook to stable from negative. In a highly volatile trade, the 30-share index resumed lower and gradually moved downwards to a six-week intra-day low of 26,220.49, a net fall of almost 248 points following weak Asian cues and sustained offloading by foreign funds. Brokers said Standard & Poor's (S&P's) upgrading the country's outlook helped the Sensex bounce back. The barometer finally settled at 26,626.32, a rise of 157.96 points, or 0.60 per cent, from its previous close. In the last three days, it had tanked by 738.38 points or 2.71 per cent. The index, however, ended the week lower by 464.1 points. The broad-based NSE index Nifty closed 57 points, or 0.72 per cent higher at 7,968.85. International credit rating agency, Standard & Poors (S&P) today upgraded country's credit rating outlook to stable from negative following positive macro economic data, revival of growth and Centre's capacity to push reforms, putting the country back on high growth trajectory. "Markets remained volatile today but bounced back at the end of trading session as S&P's upgraded the outlook on the India's credit. The correction provides investor with an opportunity to buy quality stocks," Sanjeev Zarbade, VP, Private Client Group Research, Kotak Securities, said.
While as many as 19 stocks ended with gains led by Hindalco (up 5.25 per cent), Sun Pharma (4.30 per cent) and Mahindra & Mahindra (3.16 per cent), Dr Reddy's, HDFC and HeroMoto Corp remained major losers. "This week has been quite volatile... weak global cues, profit booking Supreme Court's decision on coal blocks led to indecision and selling pressure at higher levels," said Rakesh Goyal, Senior Vice President, Bonanza Portfolio.

Leading businessman Anil Ambani today said more than creating wealth for himself, his father late Dhirubhai Ambani derived greater happiness from creating wealth for masses. "If you ever asked what part of being an entrepreneur he (late Ambani) enjoyed the most, he would say, 'I enjoy creating wealth. But what I enjoy even more is in creating wealth for the people of the country,'" the Anil Ambani Group chairman said while addressing an industry event here. It can be noted that the late Ambani, who had a humble beginning as a primary school teacher's son in Gujarat, is regarded as the father of capital markets and the equity cult, who made millions of investors millionaires with the IPO of Reliance Textile Industries in 1977. A person who had put in Rs 1,000 then in the IPO is worth over a million today, going by the price of RIL. Stating that the launch of Kothari Pioneer Mutual Fund, which was country's first private MF in 1993, was his (Dhirubhai's) id…


Gripped by fear psychosis due to geo-political aftershocks, key stock market indices were on a sticky wicket for the fifth day today as both Sensex and Nifty fell over 1 per cent to hit their one-month lows. The sharp plunge left investors poorer by over Rs 95,000 crore as the market cap stood at Rs 1,27,08,846 crore. Risk appetite took a hit after the Economic Survey said achieving the high end of the 6.75-7.5 per cent growth projected previously will be difficult. This is markets' first weekly fall in six.
Weakness in the rupee against the American currency and lacklustre global shares dragged down the indices, too. The BSE 30-share Sensex remained in the negative zone and settled down 317.74 points, or 1.01 per cent, at 31,213.59, its weakest closing since July 4. The index had tumbled 794.08 points in the last four sessions. The NSE Nifty after cracking the 9,700-mark to hit a low of 9,685.55, finally settled lower 109.45 points, or 1.11 per cent…
