Moving on to stock specific news...

Among the buzzing stocks today is Hester Biosciences.

Hester Biosciences shares surged as much as 14% in intra-day trade today after the pharma firm signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with vaccine maker Bharat Biotech and Gujarat Covid Vaccine Consortium (GCVC) for contract manufacturing the drug substance for Covaxin.

GCVC comprises Gujarat Biotechnology Research Centre (GBRC), Hester Biosciences and Omnibrx Biotechnologies.

According to the MoU, Bharat Biotech will provide the technology for the production of the drug substance for Covaxin, and GBRC will act as an advisor and mentor and will facilitate the technology transfer from Bharat Biotech, Hester said in a filing.

Hester will provide the complete infrastructure at its Gujarat plant for the manufacturing of the drug substance and Omnibrx will act as a technology support partner, the filing said.

Hester has estimated an outlay of Rs 400 m for this project. The entire process is facilitated by the Department of Biotechnology, the company said.

If everything goes as per the plan, then bulk production of this drug substance will begin from August 2021. This will be then supplied back to Bharat Biotech for producing vaccine doses, it noted.

Hester Biosciences is a leading player in the animal healthcare segment. It is the second-largest poultry vaccine manufacturer in the country. Only three vaccines have so far been approved to be sold in India - Covaxin, Covishield and Sputnik V.

Dixon Technologies Q4FY21 Results: Net Profit Surges 60% YoY

Dixon Technologies reported a 60% year-on-year (YoY) rise in consolidated net profit for the quarter ended March at Rs 443 m, which was below analysts' estimates of Rs 516 m.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again, fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.
