ONGC, Bajaj Auto, M&M, Cipla and Hindalco are top gainers in the Sensex. Among the top losers are Tata Motors, L&T, Wipro and ICICI Bank.

Meanwhile, both Future Retail and Future Consumer Enterprise are up 15 percent each on hopes of a possible merger with Bharti Retail.

Meanwhile, Hartmut Issel, Head of Equity & Credit for Asia Pacific at UBS continues to feel India is on track and bases the premise of his optimism on oil prices. Issel, who is also CIO, the Wealth Management at UBS says low oil prices may have been good for the economy but also impacted corporate profits. A lot of earning downgrades is a result of that factor, Issel says.

He says oil prices have since moved up and expects that to firm up a bit more resulting in wiping out the main source of downgrades. Once that is taken care of, Issel sees the domestic story picking up again. For more information please visit this site www.bigprofitbuzz.com
