SENSEX, NIFTY @ ANOTHER NEW PEAKS

Sensex and Nifty today hit new closing highs of 31,273 and 9,653, respectively on gains mainly in auto and pharma counters, helping the indices post fourth straight weekly gain ahead of the RBI policy next week. Also tracking upbeat Asian markets and a higher opening of European bourses, the 30-share BSE Sensex rallied 135.70 points and NSE Nifty closed 37.40 points higher. The Sensex resumed higher at 31,205.37 and hovered between all time high of 31,332.56 and 31,190.40 before closing at 31,273.29, showing a gain of 135.70 points, or 0.44 per cent. (It surpassed its last closing highs 31,159.40 on May 30). While, the gauge had lost 21.81 points in the previous two sessions. While the broader 50-scrip NSE Nifty after moving between 9,673.50 and 9,637.45, finished at 9,653.50, up 37.40 points, or 0.39 per cent. (Surpassing the previous 9,624.55, logged on May 30). The Reserve Bank is scheduled to hold its bi-monthly monetary policy meet on June 6 and 7 this month.

The key benchmark indices also mirrored global bullishness after overnight record closing on American bourses on positive US manufacturing and Employment data. Overseas, Asian market ended higher buoyed by overnight gains on Wall Street with solid assessment of the US manufacturing sector and release of the positive US monthly jobs report. Barring Shanghai Composite Index which declined 0.28 per cent, Nikkie Japan gained 1.74 per cent, South Korea up 1.16 per cent and Hong Kong ended by 0.32 per cent higher. European markets were also trading higher, with Dax Germany gaining 1.00 per cent, CAC Paris 0.79 per cent and London FTSE 0.47 per cent.

After a two-day brief consolidative pause, the market moved range-bound but near life highs during most of the session, with buying mostly in auto, healthcare, realty, consumer durables and telecom stocks. A persistent buying across-the-board also helped the indices record their fourth straight quarter gains.
- In the auto space, shares of country's largest two- wheeler maker Hero MotoCorp emerged the top gainer by climbing 2.82 per cent to Rs 3,840 apiece after the company posted a 8.7 per cent rise in sales in May.
- Pharma stocks contributed a big deal, with shares of Cipla, Dr Reddy, Lupin and Sun Pharma rising in the range of 1.24 per cent to 2.63 per cent.
- In the domestic market, Bharti Airtel rallied following merger approval with Telenor India by market regulator SEBI and stock exchanges.





"Auto stocks took the lead with positive sale figures in the month of May... Investors are accumulating pharma stocks on account of lower valuations and expectations of better trade relationship with European and Russian markets given Modi's recent visit... A positive momentum in markets was intact on expectation that the RBI is likely to be less hawkish in the monitory policy meeting next week on account of moderation in inflation and slow growth. The decline in crude prices is also helping this trend and markets continued its upward trajectory. Further strong May Auto sales figure continues to bring cheers to investor sentiments"

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…
