On Tuesday, Indian share markets witnessed a volatile trading session as crude oil prices rebounded following last week's rout.

Benchmark indices pared losses and were lifted by positive global peers while oil prices rose over renewed supply concerns.

At the closing bell on Tuesday, the BSE Sensex ended flat at 53,177 (up 16 points).

Meanwhile, the NSE Nifty closed higher by 18 points (up 0.1%).

M&M, Reliance Industries, and Tata Steel were among the top gainers.

Asian Paints, Titan, and Bajaj Finserv, on the other hand, were among the top losers.

The BSE MidCap index and the BSE SmallCap index both ended up by 0.2%.

Among the sectoral indices, stocks in the metal sector, IT sector, and auto sector witnessed buying. On the other hand, stocks in the banking and financial sector witnessed most of the selling.

Shares of Maharashtra Seamless and M&M hit their respective 52-week highs.

At 7:30 AM today, the SGX Nifty was trading down by 158 points or 1% lower at 15,700 levels.

Indian share markets are headed for a gap-down opening today following the trend on SGX Nifty.

As crude oil prices fell last week and there are rumors that central banks may go slow on rising interest rates, the Indian share markets recovered a bit.

But no one knows how long the stock market recovery will continue.

In volatile times like current one, it's better to have high ROE stocks and high dividend yield stocks in your portfolio.

Investors should keep track of promoters pledging their stake as high levels of share pledging raises a big red flag.

If you are interested in penny stocks, have a look at these fundamentally strong penny stocks.

Tata Motors' price hike

The auto major has announced an impending price hike of its commercial vehicle range.

The steep rise in overall input costs at various levels of manufacturing has pushed the company to go for a price hike.

An increase in price in the range of 1.5-2.5%, will come into effect from 1 July 2022 across the range, depending upon individual model and variant, announced the company.

Tata Motors' domestic total sales jumped nearly three folds in May to 76,210 units compared to 26,661 units in COVID-hit May 2021.

Speaking of the automobile sector, Aditya Vora, Research Analyst at Equitymaster has this to say on the current outlook:

  • Auto firms will no longer be only assembling companies but will transform into technology companies.

    As they say, catch them young.

    Companies like the one above which are at the forefront of technological change should be bought in this downcycle.

    When the cycle turns up, which in my view has already happened, these auto and auto ancillary companies will be huge wealth creators.

    It's time to buy them.
