Wed, 3 Mar Pre-Open | Monish Vora, TM Team

Indian share markets witnessed buying interest during closing hours yesterday and ended higher.

Benchmark indices ended on a strong note amid positive cues from Asian peers and a record close by S&P 500, as global worries around inflation calmed down.

GST collection numbers further indicated some positive trend with GST revenues over Rs 1 lakh crore for the 5th time in a row. Post hitting a new high in terms of GST collections in January 2021, the collections in February 2021 too, were 7% higher YoY.

At the closing bell yesterday, the BSE Sensex stood higher by 447 points (up 0.9%).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed higher by 158 points (up 1.1%).

M&M and NTPC were among the top gainers.

ONGC and HDFC, on the other hand, were among the top losers.

Both, the BSE Mid Cap index and the BSE Small Cap index ended up by 1.6%.

Top Stocks in Focus Today

Nestle India will be among the top buzzing stocks today.

In a recently held analysts' meet, Nestle India's management said it expects to sustain volume-led double-digit growth.

Nestle registered a volume growth of 6% in CY20 aided by strong growth in Maggi Noodles (approximately 20% in Q4 CY20) and KitKat (more than 20% in H2 CY20).

India's Revival: A Once-in-a-Generation Wealth Making Opportunity

Some key challenges faced by the company during the pandemic were supply constraints in the noodles category in Q2 CY20 and demand contraction from out of home channels in the beverage segment.

The company also maintained its strong focus on driving increased distribution reach in the rural markets.

Privatization-bound Bharat Petroleum Corporation (BPCL) will also be in focus today as the company said it will exit the Numaligarh refinery in Assam by selling its entire stake to a consortium of Oil India and Engineers India for Rs 98.7 billion.

The sale of Numaligarh Refinery clears the way for the privatization of India's second-largest fuel retailer.

In keeping with the Assam Peace Accord, the government had decided to keep Numaligarh Refinery (NRL) in the public sector. As part of this, BPCL was to sell its entire 61.7% stake to state-owned firms. A consortium of Oil India, Engineers India, and the Government of Assam expressed interest in buying the stake and the BPCL board on Monday approved the sale.

Market participants will also track HDFC Bank share price as the private lender said issues related to internet banking were resolved after some customers faced the second outage in three months.

"There were intermittent issues in accessing Net Banking and Mobile Banking, faced by some of our customers. The issue stands resolved," the bank's spokesman said in a text message.

The nation's most valuable lender has been facing repeated technical glitches for its netbanking platform, an issue which prompted the central bank to take rare steps recently including an external audit of the bank's technology infrastructure, and curbing digital and credit card launches.
