Wed, 3 Jun 12:30 pm | Monish Vora, TM Team

Share markets in India are presently trading on a strong note, tracking positive global cues.

Extending gains to the sixth straight day, benchmark indices edged higher taking cues from global markets as investors looked past the social unrest in the US and continued to focus on easing lockdown restrictions and prospects of economic recovery.

Optimism in the Indian market has been driven by positive sentiment across global markets as most of the economies are opening up after weeks of shutdown induced by coronavirus pandemic.

The BSE Sensex breached the 34,000-mark and is trading 497 points higher at 34,300 levels.

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty also reclaimed the psychological level of 10,000, first time since March 13, and is trading up by 158 points.

The BSE Mid Cap index is trading up by 1.4%.

Meanwhile, the BSE Small Cap index is presently trading up by 2.2%.

Moving on, market participants are tracking Vodafone Idea share price. Shares of the company surged over 10% today on the back of heavy volumes.

Yesterday, shares of the telecom operator soared 20% to hit a six-month high of Rs 7.87 on the BSE.

Watch Now : The Instant Income Summit:

Note that shares of the company have rallied sharply in the past few days after the company on Friday said it was constantly evaluating various opportunities but there was no proposal before the board of the firm as yet.

The clarification came after reports surfaced that Alphabet Inc's Google was eyeing about 5% stake in the telecom company.

On Friday, Vodafone Idea said, "as part of the corporate strategy, the company constantly evaluates various opportunities for enhancing the stakeholders' value. As and when such proposals are considered by the board of directors of the company warranting disclosures, the company shall comply with the disclosure obligations."

In news from the auto ancillaries sector, automobile components major Motherson Sumi on Tuesday reported a 68.4% decline in its consolidated net profit at Rs 1,356.6 million for the fourth quarter ended March 31, mainly affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

The company had posted a consolidated net profit of Rs 4,293.1 million in the corresponding period of the previous financial year.

The company's total revenue from operations in Q4FY20 stood at Rs 151.6 billion as against Rs 171.7 billion a year ago.

For the financial year 2019-20, the company's consolidated net profit stood at Rs 12.9 billion. It was Rs 21 billion in 2018-19.

The company said that the overall performance was affected by OEMs' (original equipment manufacturers) plant closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, especially in China and in parts of Europe.

The company's Chairman Vivek Chaand Sehgal said, "our consolidated revenues for this fiscal year have remained stable. Considering that global automotive sales have declined in the same period and that the coronavirus pandemic was already impacting China and parts of Europe in the fourth quarter, this is a strong performance under the circumstances."

Motherson Sumi share price is presently trading up by 2%.

In other news, Tata Motors has resumed operations across all its manufacturing plants in the country with Jamshedpur facility also getting approval on May 27, 2020.

Reportedly, around 59% of company's passenger vehicle showrooms, covering 69% of the retail market, have commenced operations.
