Summary

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks BSE Sensex and NSE Nifty50 ended a choppy session on Thursday mildly in the red tracking weakness across most global markets amid geopolitical tensions. Gains in consumer stocks and select heavyweights such as Axis Bank, Hindustan Unilever and Bharti Airtel were offset by IT and pharma counters. Broader markets, however, managed to stay in the green throughout the day, with the Nifty Midcap 100 index rising 0.3 percent and its smallcap counterpart 0.7 percent. Investors globally tracked news updates about the ongoing war in Europe closely, with Russia's invasion of Ukraine being in its fifth week.

See selective buying opportunities in market: Jitendra Gohil 

Jitendra Gohil, Head-India Equity Research at Credit Suisse Wealth Management, believes that weakening of sentiment has created selective buying opportunities in the market. "We believe that in these kind of stressful or difficult times, when volatility is very high and sentiment is weak, one should invest. When these issues get resolved, one should sell. We have taken this as a good buying opportunity in the previous dip. We have been recommending investors to remain a little bit more diversified in their portfolios. We have added to some stocks that can actually benefit of inflation. Overall, the sentiment is weak but there are pockets of very good opportunities. We feel that the froth in the market, which was there before this entire issue took place, has settled now," he says.
