Sensex Ends 568 Points Lower, Nifty Falls Below 16,450; IT & FMCG Stocks Witness Selling
Tue, 7 Jun Closing

Indian share markets were trapped in the bear grip throughout the trading session ending the day on a negative note.

Worries were built over stubbornly high inflation, with the Reserve Bank of India expected to follow up its unscheduled rate hike in May with another move at the policy meeting on Wednesday.

Benchmark indices dropped early as domestic investors awaited the central bank's decision, while global investors were nervous ahead of US inflation data and key rate decisions in Europe.

At the closing bell, the BSE Sensex stood lower by 568 points (down 1%).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed lower by 153 points (down 0.9%).

Oil India and ONGC were among the top gainers today.

Titan, Dr Reddy's Laboratories, and HUL, on the other hand, were among the top losers today.

The SGX Nifty was trading at 16,425, down by 157 points, at the time of writing.

The BSE MidCap index and the BSE SmallCap index ended down by 0.8% and 0.7%, respectively.

Barring the auto sector, all sectoral indices ended in the red with stocks in the IT sector, FMCG sector, and banking sector witnessed most of the selling.

Speaking of the banking sector, are you wondering if it is a good time to buy banking stocks as the central bank is all set to announce another rate hike?

Look at the NPA levels which are currently at 5-year lows, but are still a substantial 6% of the overall loan book.


For now, higher lending rates have offered a bigger margin to banks. Lending rates have gone up but deposit rates are yet to catch up.

So, for a few quarters, higher net interest margins will make the banks look healthy.

Apart from the banks, these 4 companies stand to win big as interest rate rises.
