Speaking of the current stock market scenario, investors and traders who are new to stock markets have had a superb experience over past three months as almost any and every stock has given them phenomenal returns.

The problem is that this experience may not be lasting unless investors now take a careful look at their portfolio and literally sanitize them to get rid of the unwanted elements.

Meanwhile, shares of Navin Fluorine, Neogen Chemicals and Ultramarine & Pigments hit their respective 52-week highs today.

The government may also infuse capital between 10% and 20%.

Moving on to news from the FMCG sector, Hindustan Unilever (HUL) and Emami are among the top buzzing stocks today.

FMCG major HUL has got a temporary relief from the Bombay High Court after Emami was told to give HUL seven days of advance notice before initiating legal proceedings on its trademark "Glow and Handsome".

HUL moved the court after Emami said it would take legal action against the company as it already owns "Emami Fair and Glow" brand.

HUL had recently dropped the word "fair" from its skin cream, replacing it with "Glow" Glow & Lovely for women and Glow & Handsome for men.

Justice BP Colabwalla, while hearing the HUL application filed under the Trade Marks Act, said that it appeared prima facie that HUL had applied for the trademark application in September 2018 and later on June 20 this year.

HUL in its application said the defendant should give it at least seven days prior written notice before initiating any legal proceedings in any court or claiming any interim relief against HUL as threatened in the statements made by Emami.

The court directed Emami to grant seven days to HUL before starting legal proceedings. The matter was further scheduled to July 27.

Earlier this month on July 2, Emami held a press conference accusing HUL for violating the trademark law. The company also said it would take legal action against HUL as it already owns "Emami Glow and Handsome" skincare brand.

Note that this isn't the first the time the two companies are at loggerheads over their men's personal care portfolio.

Last year, HUL filed a petition against Emami for disparaging its Fair & Lovely cream in a television commercial.

In a 2018 injunction order against HUL, Emami sought to restrain HUL from publishing a TVC for the Fair & Lovely Men's brand over claims that it intends to "demean, disparage or denigrate Emami's product, Fair and Handsome Fairness Cream for Men, thus, interfering into the direct goodwill and business loss for the company".

How this pans out remains to be seen. Meanwhile, we will keep you updated on the latest developments from this space.

Here's an interesting data of HUL, until 2013, the company had products and categories customized for Indian market. That made it difficult for the company to sell its overseas products in the country. Nor could it reach out enough to a global customer base with Indian products.

A change of strategy suddenly opened up Unilever's global markets to HUL for both sourcing and selling.

The result was evident in profit growth and stock price over the next few years.

Stock of HUL Had the Crorepati Trigger in 2013
