The year saw the Sensex zooming to a high of 29,077.28 on September 8 and a low of 22,494.61 on February 29. Today's closing meant a net gain of 508.92 points, or 1.94 per cent from its last year-end close of 26,117.54.
During the year, the Nifty gained 239.45 points, or 3.01 per cent. The gauge had climbed to a high of 8,968.70 on September 7 and touched a low of 6,825.80 on February 29.
Domestic institutional investors (DIIs) bought shares worth a net Rs 957.83 crore as per provisional data. But foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) net sold shares worth Rs 662.29 crore yesterday. GAIL saw the maximum jump, up 3.07 per cent, followed by Sun Pharma (2.59 per cent), ITC (2.31 per cent) and PowerGrid (2.14 per cent).

DHIRUBHAI ENJOYED IN WEALTH CREATION

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…

BEAR GRIP ON INDIAN STOCK MARKET

RECORDS 1 WEEKLY FALL IN 6 WEEKS
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…
