Most software stocks are trading lower today. HCL Tech and Wipro are among the stocks leading the losses. India's leading software firm, Tech Mahindra, has clarified regarding rumors about the possible acquisition of Financial Technologies (FT) by the company. The company refused to confirm to a leading news service whether they had met the restructuring committee of FT. However, they stated that any talk of a Satyam like acquisition of FT, by the company, were premature and a deal had not been discussed with the promoters. This clarification has come after there was speculation that Tech Mahindra was considering buying out the promoter's stake in Financial Technologies. It must be pointed out that the company has outlined acquisitions to be its main driver for growth. However, Tech Mahindra has very little domain expertise in the business that FT operates in. Tech Mahindra is trading up 2.2% today.

Automobile stocks are trading mixed today. While Escorts and TVS Motors are trading in the green, Tata Motors and Bajaj Auto are witnessing selling pressure.
