Speaking of stock markets, a recent survey by Gartner states that almost 33% of electronics supply chain leaders have already moved their businesses out of China.

Or at least are planning to. The increased tariffs imposed by the Chinese and the US government have resulted in rising business costs.

Of course, India has begun reaping the benefits.

Smartphone and premium electronics maker Apple, for instance, is set to triple its production in India in the next three years.

Co-head of Research at Equitymaster Tanushree Banerjee, in below video talks about such stocks that are set to benefits from India's electronics revolution.

Top Buzzing Stocks Today

ONGC will be among the top buzzing stocks today.

Upstream companies like ONGC, involved in the exploration and production of oil, stand to lose when oil prices tumble.

Aurobindo Pharma will also be in focus today.

Infosys cuts ties with Australian lobbying firm

Software major Infosys on Friday ended ties with Australian lobbying firm Synergy 360, which is in the middle of a scandal about a former member of Parliament Stuart Robert.

Further, a top Infosys executive stated in a parliamentary committee hearing that the company has taken steps to strengthen governance in the country and denied that it used the firm for lobbying.

In a parliamentary hearing, Infosys' Regional Head for the Asia Pacific region Andrew Groth, said that it had paid Synergy360 AU$16 million over five years to help it grow the company's government business in Australia since it had only worked in commercial contracts up until that point.

An investigation was launched last year amid claims that former MP Stuart Robert had helped the lobbying firm and its client win government contracts.

In response to questions by the committee, Groth said that of the US$ 16 m, 70% of the amount pertained to the resources required to deliver on the programs it was on, 15% for work in terms of sales support, and 15% was in success fees. A success fee is a type of agreement where the fee is paid when a particular outcome is positive.

However, this was because the MP had wished to be apprised of progress made on a specific project to upgrade the information technology systems at Services Australia.

Dr Reddy's forays into trade generics

Pharmaceutical company Dr Reddy's Laboratories, on Friday, entered into the trade generics business in India with the launch of its new division RGenX. Trade generics are drugs that are pushed directly to trade and not promoted via doctors.

The Hyderabad-based company aims to roll out its trade generics across cities and towns in India, including rural areas. The company will work closely with its channel partners to ensure the availability of its products.

The move comes after the Indian government warned government hospital doctors to prescribe generic medicine or face consequences last month. Furthermore, the order asked them to ensure that visits of medical representatives to the hospital premises are completely curtailed.

According to an office order, the doctors at central government hospitals, Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) wellness centres, and polyclinics have been instructed time and again to only prescribe generic medicines.

However, Dr Reddy's, via RGenX, aims to provide patients with access to a wider range of products and increased affordability. The new business will further the company's goal of reaching over 1.5 bn patients by 2030.
