Some Movers Last Week

The markets remained in consolidation mode and ended with marginal gains in the week ended July 1 amid a falling rupee, persistent FII selling, auto sales numbers, second-highest monthly GST collection, and mixed global cues.

For the week, the Sensex was up 179.95 points (0.34 percent) at 52,907.93, while the Nifty50 was up 52.75 points (0.33 percent) at 15,752. The Sensex lost 4.5 percent and the Nifty shed 4.8 percent in June as concerns mount for the global economy.

Bajaj Auto

The share price slipped 5 percent after the company reported weak two-wheeler sales for June. Bajaj Auto’s domestic two-wheeler sales fell 20 percent year-on-year to 125,083 units in the month even though the year-ago period was partially affected by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Titan Company

The scrip was down 5 percent after the government increased the import tax on gold to 12.5 percent from 7.5 percent. The decision was taken to curb imports, as the rupee slumped to a record low. India is the world’s second-biggest consumer of gold.


The stock fell over 20 percent in the week gone by. The firm informed the bourses that its board had given its approval for the acquisition of up to 33,018 equity shares of quick commerce company Blink Commerce (BCPL) (formerly Grofers India) for Rs 4,447.48 crore in an all-stock deal.
