Sensex rallies over 300 pts; Nifty breaches 11,200 mark

Keeping up its record-setting spree for the fifth straight session the 30-share Sensex added 308.77 points, or 0.83%, to hit a new peak of 37,293.41

Mumbai: The Sensex rallied over 300 points, and Nifty breached the 11,200 mark for the first time in early today, as ITC lifted benchmark bourses to fresh lifetime highs after posting strong Q1 results.

 

Better-then-expected quarterly earnings by select index heavyweights, positive Asian cues and firm foreign capital inflows boosted investor sentiment here.

Keeping up its record-setting spree for the fifth straight the 30-share Sensex added 308.77 points, or 0.83%, to hit a new peak of 37,293.41.

The index had gained 633.41 points in the previous five straight sessions. NSE Nifty, too, jumped 77 points or 0.69% to quote at a new high of 11,244.30.

All BSE sectoral indices, led by FMCG, metal, consumer durables, banking, power, and auto, rose up to 1.27%.

ITC was the top gainer in the Sensex pack, surging 6.48% to Rs 305.75, after it posted 10 per cent increase in standalone net profit at Rs 2,818.68 crore for the first quarter ended on 30 June 2018, aided by lower expenses, good growth in agri-business and other FMCG business despite decline in cigarettes sales.

Other gainers were Tata Steel, ICICI Bank, Hero MotoCorp, Bajaj Auto, Asian Paints, Kotak Bank, Bharti Airtel, Tata Motors, HDFC Bank, Vedanta, HDFC, and Wipro, surging up to 3%.

RIL rose 0.45% to Rs 1,115.45, ahead of its quarterly earnings scheduled today.

Brokers said investors were busy creating new positions following the beginning of the August futures and options (F&O) series leading to the rally.

Moreover, data showing that foreign institutional investors made sizeable buying yesterday, buoyed sentiment.

Foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) bought shares worth a net of Rs 2,453.57 crore, while domestic institutional investors (DIIs) sold shares worth a net of Rs 2,716.04 crore yesterday, provisional data showed.

Overseas, Asian stocks edged higher following a series of steps by China shifting to stimulus mode.

Japan’s Nikkei quoted 0.28% higher, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng gained 0.03% in the early trade.

However, China’s Shanghai composite index shed 0.06%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended 0.44% higher yesterday.
