Summary

Stock Market Highlights: Indian equity benchmarks Sensex and Nifty50 ended a volatile session with strong gains on Tuesday, shrugging off a mixed trend across global markets, thanks to a fag-end recovery in financial, oil & gas and IT shares. Strength in heavyweights Reliance Industries, Infosys, TCS and ICICI Bank aided the bounceback in headline indices. Broader markets also recovered their intraday losses in the second half of the session, with the Nifty Midcap 100 and Nifty Smallcap 100 indices rising 0.3 percent each. However, caution persisted among investors globally as they tracked updates on the Russia-Ukraine war closely.

IT demand extremely strong as seen in Accenture results: Pathik Gandotra

Pathik Gandotra, Partner at Dron Capital Advisors, believes it is the right time to focus on sectors with strong earnings growth. Among the strongest themes in the market at the current valuations is the IT sector, he says.

"Demand is extremely strong, as evidenced by the recent Accenture earnings. The markets will eventually respond to top-line growth rather than bottom-line in IT companies. That's what I think is going to be the theme for the next 12-18 months. These are available at very decent prices after quite a healthy correction," he adds.

Oil & gas space doing reasonably well: Anand Tandon

Market expert Anand Tandon is of the view that if crude oil remains at current levels, it is likely that gross refining margins (GRMs) will go up for most refiners. "If we were to allow free market pricing, for many oil marketing companies, this is a time when they would be making supernormal profits,” he says.
