Majority of automobile stocks are trading in the green, with TVS Motors and Ashok Leyland being the major gainers. However, Tube Investments and Escorts are among the few stocks trading in the red. As per a leading financial daily, Ashok Leyland has said that it will not be launching sedans and will focus on large light commercial vehicles (LCV's) to be launched by March 2014. As per the company, it wants to capitalize on the strong customer loyalty enjoyed in commercial vehicles that also have a longer lifecycle and customization. The company recently launched multi-purpose vehicle 'Stile' in collaboration with Japan's Nissan Motor Company. Reportedly, the company's sale of LCV's fell by 28% as compared to a fall of 30% in industry sales during 1HFY14 on a YoY basis.

Most of the stocks in fertilizer sector are trading in green with Tata chemicals and Godavari fertilizers leading the pack of gainers. As per the financial daily, Tata Chemicals is planning to restructure its European business. The company is looking to close its soda ash and calcium factory in UK, due to rising energy costs.
