Top stocks to watch out for on April 18: Jet Airways, Mindtree, Wipro, RIL

Updated : 2019-04-18 07:39:57

Indian benchmark indices BSE Sensex and NSE’s Nifty 50 are likely open little changed on Thursday amid muted cues in Asian markets after a negative performance on Wall Street, with caution ahead of business surveys in Europe and Japan, and the Good Friday and Easter holidays keeping investors on the sidelines.

On Tuesday, NSE Nifty and BSE Sensex extended gains to end at record highs amid sustained buying from foreign investors and positive sentiment in global peers. Investors were also optimistic as the earnings season got off to a good start and the IMD forecast average monsoon rains this year. Domestic stock, bond, commodity and forex markets remained closed on Wednesday on account of Mahavir Jayanti. Here are the top stocks to watch out for in today’s trade:
