Among the outperformers of this week, most names belonged to the internet, pharma and technology sectors while PSU sectors and multiplexes were among the top losers.
“The IT index again gained the most, after the markets were expecting a better Q2 performance from the IT companies. With the lack of any official statements from the high level talks to defuse border tensions, investors need to be prepared for slow progress in this regard. As such, this uncertainty will keep worrying the markets in the short term,” said Vinod Nair, Head of Research at Geojit Financial Services.
