MARKETS ON WEDNESDAY: Indices end lower, Nifty below 10,600; Airtel up 3%

Market rundown by Anand James, chief market strategist at Geojit Financial Services    "Global volatility led by high bond yields in the US attracted some profit booking in the domestic markets, a day prior to the F&O expiry. Rupee hitting a 14 month low against the backdrop of persistent selling by the FIIs and the rollover numbers languishing at an eight month low figure added to the weakness in the domestic indices. But, healthier Q4 earnings numbers, continuing buying interest seen in the IT sector and marginal easing in oil prices guarded the key support levels in the benchmark indices."

More steam left in Dalmia Bharat, analysts expect earnings to grow by 50%   One would tend to imagine that after having returned almost 42 per cent in the past one year, much higher than the -4 to 5 per cent returns seen in top cement stocks such as UltraTech Cement, Ambuja Cements and Shree Cement, investor comfort in Dalmia Bharat may not be very high.   However, if analysts are to be believed, the days ahead are equally good for Dalmia Bharat, one of India’s oldest cement companies.READ MORE
